"Show up on his background report is you have to be convicted. So Adams is arrested. He's not in jail very long before he commits suicide. He never stands trial. His wife does his wife actually gets two years serves her two years. She's already out. Which is another reason we don't have a lot of information regarding this case. There's no trial. Correct. So a background check would have come back clean for him every single time. Now imagine this. You're in charge of some youth organization. And brother Adams comes in and says, hey, I want to volunteer with the kids. I have a lot of energy, like this would be so great. And you say to him, well, we take child safety here very seriously. We got to do a background check on you. What does Adam say? Sure. Do it. Yeah. I have a background check from the border patrol every single year. They updated every single year. Do it. Whoever's running that organization gets his background check clean. Calls him a pay guess what? Clean. We're ready to introduce you to the kids. Background checks, catch very, very, very, very few people, people who are only convicted, should they be done for those just because of that, yes. I will say yes, they should. However, the huge danger in background checks is whoever's running that youth organization and just let Paul Douglas Adams in with his clean background check has been fooled by the system that they trusted this background check system into thinking that Adams is safe when he's a monster. So organizations let down the walls for people who can jump over the background check hurdle. And then they're given trust and access to children. Yeah. And the background check system is a net with a whole big enough to drive a bus through, and that bus is full of child predators. So with that in context, I mean, what is there anything we could do or I mean, I know that church has its youth protection program, which is great. I mean, it's something right. But I'm just thinking those bishoprics sitting in an office calling a new young women's president, right? What do we call them now? A priest corm adviser or something, right? So is there anything we could do? So everybody, it's a great question. And I feel like I've answered 500 versions of that question in the last 5 years. Everybody wants to know what is the answer. And it just is not one thing. It has to be a whole pie with lots of different tools to use. So a background check can be one. If somebody already has a conviction on their case, please don't put them with children. Like we should know about that. And the church has great processes that I remember as a bishop, a record would move in. If it had an annotation on there that said, I would then be required to call the church, get the information, and a lot of it was usually they just can't serve with you. And that's actually one of my favorite safety features in our church. So that's one tool. The 2D pool is a tool. The Larry Nassar case, are you familiar with that case? He's the doctor, the physician for the U.S., women's gymnastics. And he documentary. Yes, he's awful. He accuses these girls for years. And sometimes does it while their parents are in the room. Because it's just a routine medical checkup, right? Yeah, and that is such a, that's a head game to those girls, right? Because it's not only not only I can abuse you, I can abuse you when broad daylight and no one cares about you, right? So the two deep rule works when it works. And it's one of those things we might as well do it, right? Absolutely. We got the human resources. Let's do it. When it doesn't work, it's awful. Yeah. And probably very rare. It's a tool. It's one tool. There's no researchers forever, have been trying to say, what are the characteristics of someone who commits abuse? Can we identify those people? The only thing they can agree on is they're more likely to be male. Period. Okay. So is there anything to the fact that typically abusers were once abused? Okay, so yes, there is some research that suggests that. And even in this case, we see that the mom was abused and the mom is here to kind of justify the use of her children. At one point, she says, we got to make a family compromise and that compromise is going to be that M1 is allowed to have sex with dad. And that's just how it has to be, right? So she's been abused. She has a victim's mentality, and she makes so you see that in her. However, the vast majority of victims do not grow up to abuse. So our word users abuse probably, but don't generalize that to everyone. That would be so fair, right? They're like, well, you see that you were abused as a kid, so we need to be very skeptical of you. Don't do that to people. That's not good. Another tool maybe in the big pie is to listen. To the kids. And this gets dicey and I know that. Let me tell you a short story. There's a very expensive private school in Seattle near where I live. They bring in a whole team of people for a week of education for the kids K to 12 on how you recognize abuse and how do you talk about abuse and how do you stranger danger abuse and relative abuse and like all the various versions and the educate these kids for a week on this. Well, three little 7th grade girls get together. And they say, gosh. Teacher so and so he really gives me the creeps. He's not ever touched me. He's never done anything, but every time I'm around him, I feel it. And all three of these girls are like, meet me, me too. So they make appointment with the school principal to say, hey, we just got all this education. We just want to share with you what we have seen from this male teacher. And the principal turns around and tells them you girls need to stop playing little detective. You need to not say things like that about people. You're going to ruin his career. Shut it down. And it's such an unfortunate story. I have no evidence of like, is this teacher abusive or is he? I literally have no evidence of that. But those girls knew what was up. Three 7 year old girl of 7 7th grade girls coming to you saying we feel weird around so and so. That should be listened to. I get it. I get the principles concerned. You're gonna ruin someone's life on the word of a 13 year old girl. Yeah. And kids should be listened to more than they have historically been listened to on this topic. So that's another piece of the pie.

"Report. If you give the advice you must report, you get an organ situation, right? So that's what the helpline is trying to do, trying to help these bishops who are probably what a general contractor or an insurance salesman or something. That was a marketing major. Thank you. Doing that right now. And I just want to really nail this is that this is why I appreciate it from the bishop standpoint. I appreciated that helpline so much. And I remember some instances I called and I'm just like, this is kind of silly. I know this isn't a big deal, but I want the record to show that I call helpline and got some advice and sometimes it was like, oh, yeah, this is completely out of my league. And this direction I'm getting is very helpful for to protect me as an individual, protect the victim and all involved. When I was a very young therapist and had to make my very first CPS call. In my state at the time, you got 48 hours to report. It took me every single one of those 48 hours to get myself together enough to understand how to report. I talked to a supervisor and I talked to a peer consult group, and I talked to all kinds of people. What do I need to know? What are they going to ask me? How do I even say all of these things, right? And I've probably made a hundred reports since then. I used to work in chemical dependencies, so there's lots of reports in that population. So I got really, really comfortable with making a CPS phone call. However, most insurance salesmen are marketing majors have never made a CPS call. I was a trained therapist and it took me every bit of 48 hours to wrap my mind around what I needed to do. I can not imagine some poor bishops sitting somewhere being left on his own. All right buddy, give him a call without any prep for here's what you can expect when you talk to CPS. So going back you mentioned those three cases. So this is in a very simplified method is a perfect world we think we've found out of abuse. I'm going to call the police. The police are going to drive to the home, arrest the man, and roll the credits. Everybody's safe and wonderful. But it's much more complicated than that. And even in some states, like Oregon, if a bishop was just to do that, he would be in trouble, and then it's a whole other mess. There's actually some interesting research too that says mandated reporting laws make less reporting. Right? Because you're only going to nail me back up. Certain people are only going to report that if they know it's not a mandated reporting situation. So complicated there's a lot of tensions there. Because then some people might think, well, why would a state even have that law, right? And the reality is, is that if we can foster a situation, it's never perfect where at least we would much rather have in a state where it's illegal to report, at least somebody is coming to a bishop and saying, I'm out of control or this happened, or I need help, you can't report it, but now we have something to work with. And that's actually what the guy in this case does. It's the only moral thing that I can find any evidence that he ever did. Is he told his bishop, I'm abusing my daughters. They actually just went out at the time when he confesses it. And this is in Arizona. Scenario, the date of the start of the abuses a little, at one point, they say 2010 or one point they say 2011, 2011 seems more likely to me, but I've read most of the court documents but all of them. So I mean, it's my guess. And so you mentioned these three types of laws. What was it for Arizona? So at that time, they were a lot too, which said, you must report, but there are exceptions. Okay. So the guy reports the abuse to the first bishop, this is the abuser. The abuser, his name, is Paul Douglas Adams, he reports to his bishop, I'm molesting my 7 year old daughter, right? So the bishop, as far as I can understand, believed that the abuse had ended. He has a meeting, he's got the man in his office, they immediately called the wife in and the wife admits that she knows this is going on. She does her best to protect the children from him. They have lots of very specific rules in their house around how the kids are allowed to interact with dad, but clearly dad breaks all the rules. And they, from what I can tell, the couple presents to bishop number one, it's not happening anymore. And I just want to highlight this is that in all of these situations and some rights and article they have documents or whatnot. But there is so much information we don't know, unfortunately. And it's not that we're trying to protect anybody or make the church look good or whatever. Because in this instance, the church maybe isn't looking awesome, but it is what it is. There's a lot of information. You know, and to be fair, this reporter did a solid job. He did, he did his job. There's a saying that says, newspapers write the first draft of history. And that's what this guy did. Is it the final draft? Absolutely not. But he did his job our job. Add some context, add some understanding, add like, what's the church issues around all of this? He doesn't understand all of that. Right? So that's kind of I hope what this conversation does is. This was reported by the abuser and his wife. The bishop was under pressure in the abusive stock and so he's in this mode of like great. Well, let's get this figured out spiritually and work through this. Mom and the kids seem to attend the church pretty regularly. Dad does not. So bishop is kind of just doing what he does. He's trying to take care of the people that he has ability to take care of. And obviously went to the help line. I went to the helpline to get advice. Guy his advice, they gave him technically legally correct advice as far as I can tell. I'm not an attorney. But it seems like they told him something that's true for the laws in Arizona at that time. Bishops changeover at some point. Bishop number one gives the information to bishop number two of hey, this is what's going on. Bishop number two calls the mom in and just like, hey, I have heard about this. Just want to check it in. How are you guys doing? How can I serve you, blah, blah, blah. And mom reveals things have happened since we told the last bishop. And so this is new information, so a second call to the helpline is made. But that second bishop also understands the abuse to have ended. Some of this has to do with the mom, the mom is somewhere on the autism spectrum. This is on the court documents. She is basically a motionless about most things. Isn't really feeling the gravity of it for whatever reason. There's a scene described in the court paperwork of the first time the border patrol agents, he works for border patrol, the father does. So the first time they come to his home to figure out what's what, and all the kids have been 6 kids in the family. All the kids that have been sequestered in a border patrol vehicle and mom is trying to gather up the children's stuff so they can go to school tomorrow. Their instruments in their school books and a change of clothes and all the things and she's running around the house trying to get all this done. And the border patrol agent who probably when you think of emotional people, I don't think border patrol agents come to the top of your list. But Ian in the agent is like this woman is emotionally dead. There's something wrong with her.

" And this week's religion roundup, an AP investigation and covers abuse reporting failures in the Mormon church, a Christian flag flies over Boston and Iraq's Yazidi community commemorates a tragic decade on stage. Three of 6 children who accused their father of sexual abuse are suing the Mormon church for not going to authorities and letting the abuse go on for 7 years. It didn't stop. The eldest daughter of Paul Douglas Adams says when she reported abuse on a phone helpline, it was kept within the church. It didn't go away. They just let it keep happening. AP investigative reporter, Michael resendez, says the Arizona case follows a pattern found in other states. The Associated Press has received nearly 12,000 pages of sealed records from another child sex abuse case in West Virginia, which show that the helpline stands at the center of an elaborate system to divert child sex abuse complaints away from law enforcement. And instead send them to attorneys for the church who may cover up that abuse, leaving children and victims in harm's way. Attorneys for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints say church officials feel they were constrained by confidentiality rules. To lay at the feet of these bishops, the blame for that is absurd and it's wrong. Arizona's child sex reporting law says anyone who reasonably believes a child has been abused or neglected has a legal obligation to report the information. The Christian flag that became the focus of a free speech legal battle that went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court has been raised outside Boston city hall. The flag raising took place about three months after the Supreme Court ruled unanimously that the city unjustly discriminated when it refused to fly the banner in 2017. Artists from the Yazidi community of Iraq commemorated their tragedy during a stage performance in Iraq's Kurdish region. It has been 8 years since the lives of the Yazidis were torn apart by Islamic State militants. The United Nations has called the attacks a genocide. I'm Walter ratliff.

"Now to the top stories we are following for you on WTO. It is 9 years in prison, a Russian prison for WNBA basketball superstar Brittany griner, who was convicted of drug possession and smuggling today for having cannabis vapes in her luggage. The judge says the time that grinders already served since February will count toward the sentence. Griner pleaded guilty in the case, but says she had no intention of breaking the law. The Justice Department has charged four Louisville police officers involved in the deadly raid that killed Kentucky's Breonna Taylor two years ago. Three of those officers are no longer on the force, Taylor was a 26 year old black medical worker who was shot to death during a no knock warrant.
