Joe Jackson (Michael Jackson father) talks to the press at the 2009 BET AWARDS at the Shrine in los Angeles June 28. Jackson's image as a father was tainted throughout the late 1980s through the mid 1990s in which the media reported stories told by some of his children that Jackson was abusive towards his children. When he managed his family, he ordered each of them to call him "Joseph", which led to several siblings being estranged from their father.
In 2003, in an interview for BBC TV, Joseph admitted to using physical punishment on his children and also voiced his disapproval of homosexuality.
Michael Jackson claimed that from a young age he was physically and emotionally abused by his father, enduring incessant rehearsals, whippings and name-calling, but also contended that his father being a strict disciplinarian played a large part of his success. In one altercation — later recalled by Marlon Jackson - Joseph held Michael upside down by one leg and "pummeled him over and over again with his hand, hitting him on his back and buttocks." Joseph would also trip up or push his male children into walls. One night while Michael was asleep, Joseph climbed into his room through the bedroom window. Wearing a fright mask, he entered the room screaming and shouting. Joseph said he wanted to teach his children not to leave the window open when they went to sleep. For years afterward, Michael suffered nightmares about being kidnapped from his bedroom.
Michael first spoke openly about his childhood abuse in a 1993 interview with Oprah Winfrey. He said that during his childhood he often cried from loneliness and would sometimes get sick or start to vomit upon seeing his father.In Michael's other high profile interview, Living with Michael Jackson (2003), the singer covered his face with his hand and began crying when talking about his childhood abuse. Jackson recalled that Joseph sat in a chair with a belt in his hand as he and his siblings rehearsed and that "if you didn't do it the right way, he would tear you up, really get you."

Using Scientology's very own words against them.
This unauthorized video was made using re-edited footage from Scientology's own PSA for their front-group "Youth for Human Rights" -- one of the many front-groups the cult uses to recruit members into Scientology. The video is juxtaposed alongside footage from numerous interviews and news stories detailing Scientology's long history of abuses.
Scientology's Rehabilitation Project Force (RPF), puts coerced participants through regimes of harsh physical punishment, forced self-confessions, social isolation, hard labour, and intense doctrinal study, all as part of leadership-designed efforts to regain members' ideological commitment. The confinement that participants experience, combined with forms of physical maltreatment, intensive ideological study, and forced confessions, allows social scientists to speak of the RPF as a "brainwashing" program.

Child Abuse in Bangladesh School by Teacher
Bangladesh has banned beating in schools after an upsurge of "inhuman" treatment of pupils by teachers, an official said Tuesday.
"Corporal punishment hinders the progress of a student," education secretary Syed Ataur Rahman said in a government order issued late Monday to schools nationwide.
"Teachers should help the physical and mental growth of the students to flourish -- they should be grooming them so they grow up as worthy citizens of the country," the order said.
Rahman told AFP that the ban on beating and caning was because the government had "seen that these punishments can be inhuman".
"Some parents have even attacked teachers for beating their child," he said, adding that corporal punishment could also cause truancy, as pupils avoided classes at which they had been beaten.
The move comes after the country's High Court urged the government to tackle growing cases of excessive corporal punishment in schools.
In March, eight Bangladeshi children received treatment in hospital after being caned by their headmistress for forgetting to bring coloured pencils to school.
Bangladesh has more than 30 million students in schools and madrassas -- and nine out of 10 are physically beaten in school, according to a report released last October by the UN Children's Fund (UNICEF).
The report, which surveyed more than 3,800 children aged between nine and 18, found that the most common form of physical punishment was with a cane or stick.
It also found that seven out of ten children were physically punished at home.
Abuse continues.. now in Madrasas (Islamic schools) http://www.dhormockery.com/2012/05/blog-post_2359.html
