Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

my spirit weeps...

Just finished watching Lateline on the ABC. They featured sexual abuse of Aboriginal children by pedophiles within their community, and the resounding inaction by the bureaucracies whose job it is to get involved.

Near the end of the program Mantatjara Wilson, a female elder of the community, said "My spirit weeps."

And so did mine...

I didn't watch this so I was wondering if pedophiles had always been in the communities but were controlled by tribal taboo and law? Did the programme mention this?

No. JahTeh, I don't think that was mentioned. There is the link to the transcript, so you could go and check it out.
