A wild goose chase

Despite the evidence

It is a morbid attitude

It is difficult to comprehend that children who cannot be connected to the issue,
become the subject of justice, get unsavely convicted, and end up in prison.

The tip of the iceberg is exonerated after endless efforts of many years.

Children are deprived of their lives by using a flawed justice system, where various bag of tricks are at one’s disposal, by locking them up in prison.
It’s a system of mopping with the tap open. No matter who, no matter how correct you are, there’s no escape.

The shortcomings of the justice system. It’s a different world.

You find yourself in an artificial scenario where people work in a conditioned manner. They’re nitpicking to create a false image – even when you have nothing to do with it. A cycle of foolishness emerges, and a minor detail is enough to throw a wrench in the works and disrupt the justice system. The pendulum swings too far in the wrong direction.

There is a difference between reality and perception, in other words, the ideal image of justice that is presented. People don’t know those individuals, and the outside world doesn’t see what’s happening there and how individuals behave. When you have a conman there, as happened in part 2 of the website – Diederik Stapel, Professor, Star academic, who knows how to fabricate research one after the other for years, without any actual research. This is also the reality within the justice system, as the numerous examples make clear.

The Incredible Thai Cave Rescue: Saving Twelve Boys and Their Soccer Coach.

Why the example from 2018, 12 children aged between 11 and 16, and their soccer coach in that cave in Thailand during the monsoon. It’s the reality of life. Internationally, the best in the world have joined hands, and where something was deemed impossible, the miracle got its chance. Thousands have dedicated themselves to it. It’s hard to grasp what everyone together has achieved to rescue those 12 young footballers and their coach in a race against time, at the last moment. It’s a unique event that shows the extent of human capability.

This stands in contrast to a failing justice system, where a troublemaker within the system does something with a child that one wouldn’t want to experience in the darkest of dreams. Ricky Jackson – 18 at the time – spent 39 years in prison based on a coerced false testimony from a 12-year-old child. And so on, there is an endlessly long list of those who encounter the same, as the website clearly illustrates.

1 Australian of the Year: Dr Richard Harris SC OAM, specialist anaesthetist and cave diver#AOTY2019

27 dec 2018

In July 2018, Adelaide anaesthetist Dr Richard Harris made worldwide headlines when he joined an international team to rescue a group of 12 boys and their soccer coach from a flooded cave in Chiang Rai, Thailand.

A diver with 30 years’ experience and a specialist in aeromedical retrieval, Richard was leaving for a cave-diving holiday when he received the call for help. Under great pressure and putting his own life at risk, he swam through the narrow cave system to assess the health of those trapped, giving the medical all-clear for each evacuee, and administering an anaesthetic to each of them within the cave to facilitate their rescue.

Richard was key to the rescue’s success, showing character, determination and courage, and staying until the last person was safe.

He has previously participated in complex diving recoveries, appeared in National Geographic documentaries and, in 2015, was recognised for his outstanding contribution to cave exploration. In 2017 he was awarded The Australasian Technical Diver of the Year.

2 Inside the Thai cave rescue – Dr Richard Harris | Anh’s Brush With Fame

Dr Richard Harris is a medical hero. When a soccer team became trapped in a Thai cave in 2018, the South Australian anaesthetist played a pivotal role in getting them out
In the latest season of Anh’s Brush With Fame, Anh Do invites captivating Australians into his painting studio for an in-depth conversation that will inform how he will represent them on the canvas.

The first child came down and sits on my lap and gives this little wai, you know, like they do. And it just breaks your heart, you know? “Thank you for what you’re about to do to me.” I think, “Don’t be nice to me now.”

So I hold up the first injection and touch his leg and he goes, “Yep, no worries.” I give him the jab. And then it takes about five minutes for them to fall asleep. So I’m holding their jaw and their head protecting their airway as they start to get a bit noddy.

And once they’re asleep, then I get the British diver over and he’ll help me put this full face mask on,
which is actually really difficult putting something like that on what is essentially a rag doll at that stage. Then once that’s right, we strap the scuba tank to their chest and then I have to do
the first test. So I have to immerse the kid’s face in the water.

So I just basically push the child’s face underwater. And that was a real sentinel moment for me. I mean, I can’t tell you how wrong that feels.

So you felt that you were maybe killing this child?

Yeah, that’s what it felt like. It was terrible. So I sit the kid straight up again and look in the mask. No water. OK, first time, alright. Do it again. And I did that about three times and then let the kid sort of
sit facedown for a while, bubbling away, breathing through the mask. And I think, “This is actually working.”

So then, the next phase is to package the kid up ready for the transfer through the cave. So the second thing that we did, we had put cable ties around the kids’ wrists and we’d told them that was to stop water getting into the wetsuit, ’cause the wetsuits were baggy and not well fitting.

And then we put the kids’ hands behind their back and clip those two cable ties together with a carabiner. The idea behind that was to keep the kids nice and streamlined so that they’d be easy
to push through the water for the British divers, and their arms wouldn’t float out and get tangled or hooked up in the stalactites and restrictions and things in the cave. And so they wouldn’t damage their arms and also they wouldn’t slow down their exit out of the cave.

When it dawns on the emotions what has been accomplished for those Thai children and their coach, to eventually place them in the water for 3 hours with a mask, sedated like packages that could breathe but couldn’t panic, accompanied by two experienced cave divers, during a three-day rescue operation against time, as visible in the videos, to successfully extract everyone from the flooded cave…

Likewise, when the sensitive chord is struck while attentively watching and listening to the videos of youngsters of the same age who, in all their innocence, have something planted on them and then end up in prison in an incomprehensible manner…
It’s the unbearable situation of the millstone around the neck.

It is appropriate to watch and listen to a video of an exonerated person to realize what happens when justice derails …
