I am putting in this in "crimes" because that's exactly what this is, a horrific mass murder. Bodies of 800 children found in septic tank of former home for unwed mothers Special kinds of neglect and abuse were reserved for the Home Babies, as locals call them. Many in surrounding communities remember them. They remember how they were segregated to the fringes of classrooms, and how the local nuns accentuated the differences between them and the others. They remember how, as one local told the Irish Central, they were usually gone by school age - either adopted or dead. According to Irish Central, a 1944 local health board report described the children living at the Home as emaciated, pot-bellied, fragile and with flesh hanging loosely on limbs. http://www.essentialbaby.com.au/lif...er-home-for-unwed-mothers-20140604-39i4a.html It's not just the priests who need investigating for historic child abuse... But you never hear about the nuns. I recall one lady, slightly dotty, who had carried the traumatic memory of seeing an unwed mother thrown from a high window by a nun at one of the laundry sweatshops aka 'homes for unwed mothers' here in Melbourne, many many years ago. I'm sure there's lots of stories out there regarding abuse by nuns. Women can be sadists and sociopaths too.. and where better to be for one of those, than a sanctioned victim pool filled with victims nobody gives a damn about.
