    I was saying that about now.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    my mother and my uncle were both victims of satanic ritual abuse. Shame on everyone here who pretends this never existed.

    Thats the name i was trying to remember.

    McMartin preschool.

    Massive sexual abuse by the whole staff.

    In the news for months.

    Never happened. Guy spent like ten years in prison until the kjds got old enough to recant.

    Not satanic, it was the "where did he touch you" dolls, before they realized kids want to please so they figure out what story you're trying to hear and tell it to you.

    What always offended me was there is never any effort to sensationalize the vindication of the falsely accused. All i saw was a short piece about one guys release, but they talked about it daily for about a year during the investigation and trial.

    Reread the case study. Satanic ritual abuse played a significant role in the accusations.

    Sorry for you mother and uncle but I say shame on you for suggesting that because we are speaking out against the sensational hysteria of ritual abuse that swept the nation we are somehow for ritual abuse in the isolated circumstances in which it actually happened.

    Did they always remember or did it take the help of a "therapist" of some kind to "recover" the suppressed memories?

    The problem always was that not everybody will suppress traumatic events, yet the satanic panic "victims" all did.

    No disrespect, but "recovered memories" are almost always "planted" memories.

    This is highly unlikely, factually speaking.

    Britain suffered an episode of this in the early 1990's, kids removed from families for safety and "therapy"..
