Re: Roger Martin - trial

Let's see if I am up to speed: Physical abuse can be heinous or valid depending on context. Is that the short summary? Hello....the search for clarity is commendable, but so is a realisation of the time to withdraw. Right, you have not been around much recently. But let's work on the logic construc...

Re: Roger Martin - trial

That link is indeed an estimated 5,000 abused pupils. David was giving an estimate to understand how many pupils could have been abused. Thank you for providing the text. 'Abused' and 'could have been abused' is not the same thing at all. There are 66 million people in the UK. All of them 'could ha...

Could I point out a spelling typo in the thread title ?
I could edit but feel you should.

Re: Roger Martin - trial

I keep coming back to the cycling shorts parties and I’m surprised there haven’t been arrests yet. I dont think, in and of itself, something like having pupils provide silver service to a group of masters having dinner, dressed in cycling shorts would, strictly speaking, have been illegal. Inapprop...

Re: Roger Martin - trial

The whole thing with skinny-dipping itself isn’t an issue in my opinion, UNLESS it’s something forced or imposed by someone for their own gratification. Naturism and naturist swimming is acknowledged as good for wellbeing, pool hygiene etc - but isn’t something to be forced on boys for a teacher’s ...

Re: Roger Martin - trial

My recollection is that RM was a well-regarded guy, but probably not a great educator as he always seemed to have the bottom sets. He did have a few habits - the house swimming thing, the cine camera thing - that might have been regarded as merely eccentric by the standards of the day, or at least ...

Re: Here's a hypothetical

Another one, here's a blog written by a guy who likes to go on holiday by himself in Pattaya and happens to have an old friend named Richard McCall! https://petestravels.wordpress.com/2017/01/20/homeward-bound/ Hmmm...ok. For anyone who doesnt know, let's just say that Pattaya hasnt got a particula...

Re: Here's a hypothetical

I am afraid Max that there is more to it than a clumsy pass on an older man. Not really from the way that Pete described it. Trying it on with an ex-pupil, over 18 and twice his size, is not much of a crime. What did McCall actually do here? A clumsy pass by an older man on another man. McCall coul...

Re: Here's a hypothetical

When mentioning the difficulties faced by finding someone abroad, I made no mention of extradition and wasn’t thinking anything of the sort. Just interested procedurally in how one might go about locating someone who might be in a specific place, with no particular reason or criminal insinuation (a...

Re: Here's a hypothetical

It’s nothing to do with being ‘in the know’. Read Julian’s post at the top of the sub-forum titled ‘Please be sensitive to those who may read these forums’. Whilst I appreciate that this can’t descend into a witch hunt based upon hearsay, nor should we be flippant as to whether or not offences may ...

Re: Here's a hypothetical

I imagine one of the many difficulties for authorities looking to locate and speak to people in this way would be to inquire as to their whereabouts without them being tipped off and running/changing identity. To be fair, i dont think using one's middle name counts as changing one's indentity. It's...
