The check was returned with a letter explaining that the McMartin Tunnel Project has decided not to release the report after all, due to potential biased media criticism and because MTP seeks a more friendly, less skeptical environment for release of the report. McMartin Preschool.
Victims Webpage. This is all OK, but I would rather not make all of my public appearances public anymore. I took all of that off the top of my head and it may not be accurate to the nth degree and I would not want anyone coming after me for that…Could you take off all that stuff?
All rights reserved. Across California and beyond, normal standards of fairness and reasoned skepticism were routinely thrown to the wind, with news gatherers scrambling to outdo one another in finding purported examples of monstrous behavior by the principal defendants: Peggy McMartin Buckey and her son, Raymond Buckey.
It would be comforting to believe that mindlessly frenetic news coverage is a relic of the past. But who could make that claim with a straight face? Did McMartin have any lasting effects?
In some respects, yes. Teachers across America grew afraid to hug or touch their students, out of fear of being misunderstood and possibly being brought up on charges. A widely held notion that young children do not lie about such matters took a huge hit.
Some are vulnerable to implanted memories. In the McMartin case, many jurors found that leading questions from therapists steered impressionable children toward some of the most macabre tales. Of course, child abuse was then, and is now, an appalling reality in this country.
So is false memory. The tricky part is sorting out which is which.

Fabricated testimony, biased letter, investigations that would be laughed out of any courtroom today. Welcome to Salem, There was zero medical evidence. Where do you get your false facts from?
This trial was a witch hunt predicated on the accusation of the mentally ill crazy woman. Which btw; yes children do lie. All people lie even people under 3 ft high!
The evil here is your dark sinister mind that allows itself to harbor fairy tales and repeat them as factual. You build upon your ill conceived analysis by throwing in satanism and other things which had nothing to do with the case. The criminal in that scenario was the social working wanna be child advocate. Yes it is certainly possible to lead kids into saying things she thought she already knew as fact.
It is possible to lead kids. The numbers dont prove anything. The truth was still proven because there wasnt any evidence. I believe children want to please……lie? So whether it is one child or , that the children were answering a very persuasive line of questioning. An adult would interpret the response as a lie.
Complete analysis of this case would point the finger at the person who interviewed these children. That is the true guilty party. But then you already know. If children are abused sexually and in satanic and ritualistic ways and no one knows about it, does it still happen?
And you know it. There have been hundreds of preschools and daycares where kids alleged the very same type of abuse that happened in McMartin. Parents and adults do not have the time or energy to address these kinds of things in court if they are false. You cannot coerce children and many more; remember the catholic church?
Moreover, the parents of the kids would have provided the conscience of the kids: if therapists for what reason? If Mr. Therapist coerces Amy to lie about abuse, Amy would still feel safe enough with her parents to tell them the truth.
