                I recently received this message from an old friend, Neil Brick, with a list of references to anyone, notably to criminologists who study and try to measure “murder,” on evidence against claims that recovered memories, notably those like Neil’s of having been raised in a homicidal satanic ritual cult:

Ritual abuse exists all over the world. There have been reports, journal articles, web pages and criminal convictions of crimes against children and adults.

Proof That Ritual Abuse Exists

Large List of Ritual Abuse and Satanic Ritual Abuse References

Child Abuse Wiki – Recovered Memories

There is very strong scientific evidence that recovered memories exist. This has been shown in many scientific studies. The content of recovered memories have fairly high corroboration rates.

Bottoms, Shaver and Goodman in their 1993 study to evaluate ritual abuse claims found that in 2,292 alleged ritual abuse cases, 15% of the perpetrators in adult cases and 30% of the perpetrators in child cases confessed to the abuse. Data from Brown, Scheflin and Hammond (1998).”Memory, Trauma Treatment, And the Law” (W. W. Norton) ISBN 0-393-70254-5 (p.62) Bottoms, B. Shaver, P. & Goodman, G. (1993) Profile of ritual abuse and religion related abuse allegations in the United States. Updated findings provided via personal communication from B. Bottoms. Cited in K.C. Faller (1994), Ritual Abuse; A Review of the research. The American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children Advisor , 7, 1, 19-27

On Page 170 (first edition), of Cult and Ritual Abuse – Noblitt and Perskin (Praeger, 1995) states “One of the best sources of evaluative research on ritual abuse is the article “Ritual Abuse: A Review of Research” by Kathleen Coulborn Faller (1994)….in a survey of 2,709 members of the American Psychological Association, it was found that 30 percent of these professionals had seen cases of ritual or religion-related abuse (Bottoms, Shaver & Goodman, 1991). Of those psychologists who have seen cases of ritual abuse, 93 percent believed that the reported harm took place and 93 percent believed that the alleged ritualism occurred. This is a remarkable finding. Mental health professionals are known to be divergent in their thinking and frequently do not agree with one another regarding questions of the diagnosis and etiology of psychiatric problems…this level of concurrence in a large national sample of psychologists…would be impressive….the similar research of Nancy Perry (1992) which further supports (the previous findings)…Perry also conducted a national survey of therapists who work with clients with dissociative disorders and she found that 88 percent of the 1,185 respondents indicated”belief in ritual abuse, involving mind control and programming” (p.3).”

Sexual Abuse in Day Care: A National Study – Executive Summary – March 1988 – Finklehor, Williams, Burns, Kalinowski “The study identified 270 “cases” of sexual abuse in day care meaning 270 facilities where substantiated abuse had occurred involving a total of 1639 victimized children….This yielded an estimate of 500 to 550 reported and substantiated cases and 2500 victims for the three-year period. Although this is a large number, it must be put in the context of 229,000 day care facilities nationwide service seven million children….allegations of ritual abuse (“the invocation of religious, magical or supernatural symbols of activities”) occurred in 13% of the cases.” The authors divided these cases into “true cult-based ritual,” pseudo-ritualism” with a primary goal of sexual gratification and ritual being used to intimidate the children from disclosing and “psychopathological ritualism” the activities being “primarily the expression of an individuals obsessional or delusional system.”

Secret Weapons – Two Sisters’ Terrifying True Story of Sex, Spies and Sabotage by Cheryl and Lynn Hersha with Dale Griffis, Ph D. and Ted Schwartz. New Horizon Press, P O Box 669 Far Hills, NJ 07931 – ISBN0-88282-196-2 Is a well-documented, verifiable account of not one, but two childrens’ long untold stories of being CHILD subjects of Project MKUltra. Quotes from the book: “By the time Cheryl Hersha came to the facility, knowledge of multiple personality was so complete that doctors understood how the mind separated into distinct ego states,each unaware of the other. First, the person traumatized had to be both extremely intelligent and under the age of seven, two conditions not yet understood though remaining consistent as factors. The trauma was almost always of a sexual nature…” p. 52 “The government researchers,aware of the information in the professional journals, decided to reverse the process (of healing from hysteric dissociation). They decided to use selective trauma on healthy children to create personalities capable of committing acts desired for national security and defense.” p. 53 – 54 The book also contains a variety of documents on mk-ultra and different projects as well as reports to the Presidential Committee on Radiation and Mind Control, including information on the five Canadians’ lawsuit against the U.S. Government.

                I met Neil Brick at a ritual abuse conference in Indianapolis in 1996, where we both presented, he as a survivor, I having just discovered two active satanic ritual sites, presented on the seminar that included, eventually was team-taught by, survivors of ritual abuse, and protective parents of sexually assaulted children.  Neil founded the organization SMART (stop mind control and ritual abuse today) and began a conference in which I presented and participated from the first year of the conference in 1998, until I retired in 2009, except for 2006 when my daughter was getting married.  Neil repeatedly visited my classes during those years.  The address of the SMART website is  Neil provides the most comprehensive online library on the subject of ritual abuse of anyone I know.  He also provides audio tape of some of my presentations.

                You’ll see if you google my name that my experiences with survivors, advocates, and the wide array of mutually confirming evidence I saw revolutionized my profile of the murderer.  Having become convinced that as I am that likely as not in your community as I have known it to be in mine, there is at least one, intergenerationally based, group performing ritual human sacrifices on several high holidays, and for disciplinary reasons, who know quite well how to dispose of human remains they don’t eat and drink. Child prostitution and human trafficking, pornography and snuff films, are among its enterprises.  I also know many intergenerational survivors who in childhood, proven able to split into “multiple personalities” to compartmentalize secrets about what was done to them, to perform undercover, notably CIA/NSA-affiliated missions from drug muling to blackmail to assassination.  At fringes are teens and children brought in.  At its core are implicitly white supremacist men, many of whom are prominent in everyday life.  The numbers of victims across the US could easily number in the tens of thousands.

                When I put this empirical reality of mine together with the freedom with which my government’s missiles kill innocent people abroad, I cannot accept the profile of the killer as a young man of color, foreign or domestic.  When it comes to extreme, organized serial violence, the first image that comes to my mind is an otherwise established middle-aged white guy like me, whose murders are immune from detection, let alone prosecution.  To, the most extreme personal violence we in my country commit is at once denied at home and excused abroad.  The denial implicit in our selection of offenders whose characteristics we criminologists study reflects the cultural assumption which so culturally binds our discourse: that violence is an individual personality trait, rather than a matter of social circumstance.  When people ask me, as students often have done, “What would you do with a serial killer?” I would respond: first, I would want people to notice that the serial killing exists. And to notice the serial killing I find the most gruesome and sadistice, I have had to get over the notion that it takes a certain kind of person to be a serial killer.

                Neil Brick, thanks for all you are doing to help people notice ritual violence and its associates.  And thanks to the many survivors strong and brave enough to tell it like it is.  Love and peace, hal
