Sex abuse was covered up at cadet forces, Panorama finds - BBC News This time its the Cadets that have been exposed. Usual story. abuse,cover ups and so on. So schools,sports clubs,churches and childrens homes have all had to deal with this problem. Its not just a British problem. I think the only countries who have not had this exposed are just in denial. Is this a modern issue ? When I was a child we were not to talk to strangers and that was about it. But it seems it was going on everywhere in the 60s. My personal view is that child abuse has been going on for centuries but it is only now that victims are confident enough to come forward. Whats the answer ?
