An Agnes of God case from California

In culture on November 7, 2015 at 17:08

Many remember the play “Agnes of God” where a dead baby is found in a convent. Last year a verdict came in a very similar case where a baby was found mummified on the campus of River View Christian Academy in California which at that time was called Julian Youth Academy.

The nature of the school is very much like being forced to live in a convent. No high schools parties, no late night adventures, no Friday bars which is of much concern to me living in a time where we must prevent our youth from being marginalized so they travel down and support ISIS as some young Danes already have done. Anti-social behavior like abstinence and as result therefrom the isolation from peers must be observed and reported. This Academy held these young people in an environment which is a lot different than the one you find in a typical high school. An environment based on a religious strictness providing the teenagers with no ability to live a normal productive life without a lot of time for adjustment afterwards.

Maybe it was the harshness of facing the real world which led for this young woman to return to the school after she graduated the schools behavior modification program and become a counselor. Ill equipped to live outside but given a little more freedom than the students she engaged in a relationship. Out of fear to disappoint and even risk being shunned and abandoned both regarding job and family she simply didn’t know what to do when the baby was born.

The baby died from starvation according to the medical reports. It is a very unpleasant death for such a little human being but not very far from being strangled with clothes as it was the case in the original case in the 1970’s where a nun was acquitted due to her mental condition clearly being damaged by her stay in a religious environment.

Why was this woman then convicted of first degree murder? She had endured such a strict unbalanced religious environment just as the nun in the 1970’s case. Was it due her past labeling her as a bad and troubled girl?

It seems more than likely. People have no sympathy for her even given the fact that she didn’t choose to attend this boarding school in the first place.

I do condone murder of a child. I do condone the existence of places like River View Christian Academy. In Denmark group of young people fought hard to close Solhaven because it was existing using violence and untrained staff hired due to the size of their muscles. I believe that the staff at River View Christian Academy would use violence to prevent the teenagers from leaving and I find the very existence of this place wrong.

The teenagers who are forced to attend this school may have issues but they are often issues found rather common in our modern society where lawyers and huge companies fight very hard to earn money to a movie and entertainment industry where life with excessive drinking and use of drugs becomes the role models many teens aim for.

Why do we focus on punishing the teenagers when stars are treated lenient and the big companies using bribes to get orders to the public system gets off easy? Shouldn’t the politicians put a stop to the prevention of copyrights breaches as short as 5 years after a movie has been shown for the first time when the profit is used finance unmorally life styles choices?

Our money is used to market a live with sex, alcohol and drugs in amount far beyond normal consumption as we see it in our Friday bars. A marketing preying on our children and then we try to shelter them in sick religious environments like they have at River View Christian Academy which damages our children to an extent that they will face difficulties catching up with the life they left behind. It is as senseless at it can be.

Life simply doesn’t stop to surprise me.


When to use force and when to not

Danish media have shown this video of a school teacher dragging a girl to the pool to get her head under water.

She had been swimming but refused to get her head under water because her hair had been done for an evening event.

I have to say with years of experience in swimming as well as coaching:

This girl had no business in this swim-class. You have to shower before you go to the pool for hygienic reasons. Your hair has to be wet or you have to wear a swim cab. If this girl would not shower then send her down to the office so they can phone home to the parents and get the matter solved. Of course there are parents who make these kinds of poorly planned agreements with their children and hairdressers. They have to accept that they will have to bear the blame by the school administration instead of their child.

There is no excuse for the teacher. When he spotted without wet hair or a cab covering her hair he should have sent her away from the pool instead of dragging this poor girl to the pool and pollutes the water with all those chemical hair-products hairdressers use today. What about the health of the other students? He really lost his mind. He needs to be fired – not for dragging the girl which is an offense in its self. He jeopardized the health of the other students by putting her chemical infected hair into the water.

Week 9, xenophobia, prisoners abroad and social heritage

In Uncategorized on November 1, 2009 at 23:13

No news as it was the case last week due to the honeymoon.

But according to the blog The forgotten Danes another Dane fell victim to the relaxed laws in Florida as he was sentenced to 6 years in jail for a DUI-related killing. In Denmark the message is clear: Don’t drink and drive. Rather than waiting for people to be killed the sentence for DUI without person-related injury is properly the most strictest in the world. A full month pay based on reports from the IRS is the fine for a DUI-offender even when it is the first time. Second we had to lower the limit to 0.5 instead of the normal 0.8 when the Oresund bridge opened because even skin milk can make people from Sweden act drunk. We have an old saying: If you want to assist a person from Sweden in Elsinore, please carry him down to the ferry so he can go home and nurse his hangover.

But in Florida the fines are jokes. Only when you kill a person the hammer falls hard on you. The Dane got what equals a life sentence. At age 38 he will be too old to return to other than a life on welfare. He cannot rebuilt his life at such a high age, but that is the consequence of visiting a place where people are entrapped to commit a crime they would not have committed if they had remained in a civilized country.

I have read some of the stories published on The forgotten Danes. One thing seems to be common. The Danes are naive and they have been set up to easily. Just take the story about a Dane going down to solve a problem with a former employee being involved in a tax-case. Of course they forget that criminals are closely connected with the government in countries located in Africa.

Back to the DUI case in Florida. Did he get a trial or was he lured into a deal as a young Danish boy was in California some 10 years back. I found this case which is listed on a homepage over Danes who have been exposed of xenophobia. He got 8 years for just an ordinary high speed accident, when he tried to escape an attacking Mexican youth gang. He was deported after 4 years and when his mother protested this, she was set up in some kind of financial scheme.

A general good idea is to not visit Florida as a tourist and use your hard-earned taxdollars in a place which obivious is filled with people with an intense hate against Danes.

The last thing which shocked me was that experts are prepared to introduce payment for attending universities. Just weeks ago the fact that people can attend universities for free, was one of the good things noticed by Oprah in her show about Denmark.

I understand why they properly will go for that. The social heritage should be accepted. In most cases students attending universities are children from families who have some academically experience themselves. Children with a heritage coming from the working class are seldom seen attending higher education unless they are from other Nordic countries where an international agreement secures them possibility to study in Denmark on a kind of free pass so they don’t have to present good grades. Today Denmark is in fact paying for the education of the staff to the health care industry in all Nordic countries.

During the last 10 years families have entered Denmark and let their children choose education at a higher level where we as Danes were expecting that they should enter. It has resulted in social unrest and students can get rewards if they report a fellow student who have copied some of the books but it is noenough. This aread calls for some kind of intervention so we can maintain a secure social structure.

I hope that week 10 can be a little more positive.
