George Pell Convicted of Paedophilia Has Been Moved

I found this interesting.

George Pell, the Catholic Finance expert in the Vatican was moved from MAP – Melbourne Assessment Centre (remand). Refer https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HM_Melbourne_Assessment_Prison

He has been moved to HM Prison Barwon https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HM_Prison_Barwon

There is a trend to privatise Victoria’s prisons under PPP partnership agreements. Refer https://lens.monash.edu/@politics-society/2019/06/28/1375605/victorias-prison-system-rising-costs-and-population-little-accountability

The reason for the transfer is a drone incident and possible exploitation through pictures. It is not possible to verify the truth of this.

The real reform of paedophiles is to develop empathy through stimulating the emotions, to model compassionate responses repeatedly, to heal past hurts through emotional release therapies. To connect with what the offender emotionally responds to. To learn to unblock emotions. It is to teach about sexuality, love and respect. Therapy for this type of problem in my view depends on the hardwiring of neural networks. It may be possible to rewire for some, for others genetically it is not possible. They must be kept away from children and their images. It would be wise to place them with a good man, a wise role model to assist them to come to terms with the great suffering and pain they caused emanating from their own suffering and pain. I send love to the children and their families living with the pain today. May good come from their experiences to create a better world.

Disgraced Cardinal George Pell has reportedly been moved from his central Melbourne prison to a high security facility in regional Victoria after a drone was flown over the jail.

“Corrections Victoria can confirm an incident involving a drone flying over the Melbourne Assessment Prison on Thursday,” a Department of Justice spokeswoman told AAP on Sunday.

The drone was reportedly flying near a visitors’ garden at the prison, located in Melbourne’s CBD.

Pell has been held at the prison for almost a year, after his 2018 conviction for sexually assaulting two teenage choirboys at Melbourne’s St Patrick’s Cathedral in the mid-1990s.

The high profile prisoner, whose legal case garnered global attention, had been given a job weeding and watering a garden inside the prison.

It has been speculated that the drone may have been used to try and get pictures of Pell, which could be worth a significant sum.

He has reportedly been moved from MAP to the maximum security Barwon Prison near Geelong since the incident, which has been referred to Victoria Police.

MAP is Melbourne Assessment Prison: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HM_Melbourne_Assessment_Prison

It is illegal to fly a drone within 120 metres of a prison or youth justice facility, and doing so can result in up to two years jail time.
