A City Possessed The Christchurch Civic Creche Case

Researching and writing this book often felt like the literary euivalent of a solo crossing of Antarctica Lynley Hood A City Possessed is a strong compelling and shocking story about one of New Zealand's most high profile criminal ca 45 Think the Salem Witch Hunts couldn t happen in modern timesThink againA shocking case of mass hysteriaThis book doesn t bother making any pretence of being a dispassionate unbiased account so neither will IWhen rumours of a Christchurch based cult abusing children and then the later and separate allegations against workers at the Christchurch Civic Creche started in the early 90 s I believed them I was a young mother at the time and one of the messages we absorbed was if your child made any remarks that could remotely be construed as being about sexual abuse believe your child I loved my children and thought I was the luckiest woman alive being their mother but there was always an element of fear I couldn t be so lucky to parent these wonderful beings something would have to go wrong I think these were the subliminal messages I was absorbingFurther along of course you know children can and will lie about almost anything In some cases I would call it make believe and sometimes and this is important if you badger children and won t accept an answer of I don t know or I can t remember children will say what they believe their parent wants to hearI did start wondering when the four woman childcare workers were acuitted but I didn t start to really doubt till I read some of the children s allegations even when the oldest child accuser recanted and said she had made her claims because she thought that was what her parents wanted to hear Even though those charges were dismissed there was no move to rehear the other cases Peter Ellis remained inside He wouldn t attend parole hearings as he wouldn t admit to something he hadn t done Most telling was that in most cases NZ prisons are hell on earth for child molesters but Peter was untouched as his court guards let it be known after sitting through some of the evidence that they believed he was innocent and the charges were a farrago of nonsensePeter Ellis was set up I think a lot of the problem was parents don t want very young children in the care of males and this book makes serious allegations against the policeman in charge of the investigation Problems remain to this day in NZ in getting male teachers to teach children of any age He wasn t released until 2000 and had just received permission to appeal his charges but died of cancer in September I hope the appeal still goes forwardI know I m making some judgemental comments but I had to knock off half a for a few of Hood s own The first 167 pages were background info and she describes a child witness as the school gossip How do you think the child would feel reading this as an adult And calling Sharon Crosbie a radio diva sounds like paying off an old score I also found some of the indexing a little frustrating when I wanted to look things upStill a very important read for New Zealanders but if you aren t interested in all the background Hood is very thorough Start reading from about page 167Further reading

    This is such a thorough well documented account of the Civic Crèche Case and the huge disuiet among New Zealanders about what happened in the trial There is a huge sense of unease about the whole saga and it really bought home to me how unjust the outcome was Very insightful and comprehensive and such an interesting read
