  2. Del

    These types of cover ups are the scariest. How can we trust our government when they have all the power. As citizens we must stay informed and stand up and unite. This doc is just another example of the govt being above the law. I am glad this doc is on here. Please pass the word about this site and about this doc. Thanks again Vlat.

  3. Tyler

  5. Rachael

  6. Tell

    wow...just wow.

  7. Healer

    Slavery, sexual abuse, forced use of drugs, all this on kids, and people just dissmiss it as "nah, it's just one of the conspiracy stuff or blackmail or the like". Seriously, how much does it take to awake a sleeping people to these kind of things? Or is it accepted by the public?

  8. yikes

    Everyone in America should be forced to watch this.

  9. barbaranelson

    Provocative. The country is only run by a government when the citizens abandon their responsibilities in exchange for comfort. We the people ARE the government.

  10. Ronald McD

    This was a c@#$$% doc. Just sayin'

  11. MIchael22541

    Question authority! thank you for posting.

  12. Joe Blow

    So this is just an example of a corrupt system of government.

    I am glad that I am Canadian. If I was an American I would be ashamed.
    It is a wonder why any American citizen would tolerate such a diabolical government like this.

    But what can you do when your own new media which is suppose to protect the masses, only screws them in the ass by being in bed with the same bastards that are evil.

    Boys you have to clean out the shit from your house.

  13. Luke McEvoy

    nothing bad ever happens in canada.

  14. Vater Araignee

    I'm glad I'm an American Jr. If I was an American I would be ashamed that my government didn't have some one as corrupt as America Jr. has to learn from.

    But what can you do when when your mass media who is suppose to cover everything up has been infiltrated buy bastards that leak truth?

    Boys you have to clean house and become as blind as an American Jr.

    Wow, people will believe anything. The only things this documentary really proves is that a few people were child molesters. The rest of it are just baseless accusations made by prostitutes that were almost definitely paid for their time by the makers of the film. The documentary itself, in 1994, was just trying to ride the coattails of the false Satanic Ritual Abuse scandal left over from the lies of the 1980's. People should look up the facts before they believe in something. Some people are so gullible. Although the USA certainly has its share of real problems, it seems like some people are willing to believe any accusation as long as it paints the USA in a bad light.

  16. Guest

    Yeah, good thing there is no corruption in the Canadian government and that they teach Canadians to research the facts before blindly believing in things. I guess every country has its share of ignorance.

    "A grand jury identified eight boys singled out for sexual advances or sexual assaults by Sandusky from 1994 through 2009."

    "walked in on Sandusky subjecting a ten-year-old boy to anal penetration."

    DA who was investigating disappears, body never found, and presumed dead, hard drive to laptop missing.

    My, my, my, what coincidences to this documentary.

    So Eileen, I suppose the 40 counts of sex crimes against young boys Sandusky was just indicted on are just conspiracy theories and liars too right?

  18. Truthseeker420

    Wikipedia? Great investigative research brainiac.

  19. knowledgeizpower

    yeah lol i am not so sure about that link. but this footage was interesting.. i am not familiar with this story though like i was around what thirteen when this came out. I will have to read up on this Boys Town. But its sickening to hear about what happened to the children...Peace

  20. JB3


    Provided that you have children... Would all of this be just, "good entertainment", if one of your own little ones was being subjected to this perverted, madness?


    i was in prison with Larry. i was the head cook and he paid me well to deliver top notch meals to his bed. he was no perv. he would have been killed if any one even believed the bull the news puts out. some kids are punks that do sex for dope money. Larry did not snitch on the punk or the politician. he did not stick any ones peat up no kid. Larry was classy, with style. I'm a convicted kingpin and have been on the news several times, the news was always wrong and exaggerated. Now God on the other hand is probably guilty of such crimes. He kills kids, has people raped and murdered, tortured millions, spread disease and sores to man and beast. Even after your holly bible tells you he did all this, you still get down on your hands and knees as if to..... and worship it. if you believe this to be true about Larry, you should worship him too. Larry is not godly, he is decent.

  22. Andy King

    Just think about previous conspiracies that have gone on in the U.S. Vietnam, Kennedy 1 & 2, Ruby Ridge, WACO, all cover - up's. There's no smoke without fire and being the most powerful nation on the planet (which I have to say the U.S. loves to call itself) it has the means to achive all it's goals, even if it's to protect it's most powerful people. This documentary was produced by a really small production house in the north of England, why would they want to make a programme for the U.K. if they were just airing lie's? We in the U.K. would want some kind of proof that there was a story there, they followed that story then the U.S. owned Discovery Channel pulled the plug. I private eye and his son murdered and the brother of one of the witneses found dead also. No one wants their power taken away from them not if they cover -up their wrong doings.

  23. MairiCM

    Harold, you are a liar, because if you were in jail with King you would have known that he was in for embezzling over $38 million from the credit union, not any pedo charges.

    Additionally, King didn't even attempt to clear his name in civil court when Paul Bonacci filed a lawsuit against him, so a default judgement of $1 million was awarded against King.

    Yeah, King was clearly an all round good guy, just like you say...

  24. Elizabeth Wesley

    I wish some of the dialogue was printed at the bottom because it is muffled and can't be understood.

  25. Jeremy Hughes

    DO ANY Of you know how to use GOOGLE? Seriously, this is old ass news and 100% debunked news. Guess why DIscovery dropped this one? Because it turned out the person making the accusations had alterior motives and the ENTIRE case was thrown out. As in, the DA got the prosecution to admit they were lying. Good to see that even the most asenine conspiracy theory still gets full credence as long as you don't do ANY research...

  26. johnpaynesenior

    The claims in this documentary seem to be believable. I have no doubt (having used Google extensively) that elements in the FBI and CIA are involved in child abduction, and that these children are often used for sexual acts and sacrifice. I have no doubt either that many children are auctioned off at high prices. I have no doubt that people in positions of power, including senators and congressmen have used and continue to use such children for their own sexual ends. And I'm sure that such information is later used in order to blackmail politicians, as leverage to get them to vote one way or another, for example. It's standard stuff for that sordid area where politics meets the intelligence and security communities, not just in the USA but in lots of other places too. I'm sure there are people on this site making comments critical of the documentary because they have an interest (either personal or professional) in undermining such claims. Some of them may even draw a salary for attempting to undermine so-called "conspiracy theories". But the point is that anybody who believes that spies don't tell lies or that intelligence operatives don't conspire to do bad things is an i*iot. And to suggest that kids are not kidnapped and used for sex acts on an industrial scale is just plan s*upid. In the USA, almost 800,000 children go missing every year. The don't all fall down a well.

  27. cheliosetta

    maybe you should research the pedophile ring the b.c government has been covering up for years before stating that the Canadian government is free of political corruption.

  28. Benjamin Freedman

    Most important documentary in explaining every new Congressmen's initial reaction to Washington D.C. politics:

    " I didn't know how rough this town really was."

  29. jane smith

    what difference does it make where it happened

  30. joe31

    The Vatican,the Government and all the other perverted devil worshiping sex Feins....the devil is really perched up high,sweeping down on the innocent.I take comfort knowing a day of judgment will come and others will get exactly what the deserve and what they earned for self deceived.

  31. joe31

    As evil rises and takes over,more children suffer,stop beleving the phonys politicions i,that only want to tell you what you want to hear,then after they get in,jone in they're private money making circles off of everyone's back,finding new schemes to rape the people and country as a whole,they build there private bunkers with our taxes,there use our children to fight there money grabbing war and resources......wake up there a big big divide between the people's and powers that be.your corrode rations allow the to continue.

  32. Not always, but usually right

    This is to Guest
    Your "opinion" is as interesting as you grammar and spelling. It is impossible for anything to be 100% debunked, and you are 110% (also unlikely) wrong. It is common knowledge that these things go on and that powerful people are involved. It is also common knowledge that politicians are bought and sold every day and that the "justice" system only works for those who have enough money or influence. Just like in politics where the candidate that spends the most money wins the election, the one who buys the best lawyers, politicians and judges wins the case in court. Drop your 'Fox News' view of the world and grow up!

  33. Forbidden Fruit

    Literally anyone can edit Wikipedia articles and make them say whatever they want. It's true that the courts labeled it a "carefully crafted hoax," but all the evidence points to it being true.

    The courts declared OJ Simpson 'not guilty' and let the DuPont heir who raped his three year old daughter walk free. Justice is for the wealthy.

  34. Forbidden Fruit

    Nowhere does this documentary mention Satanism or any other supernatural BS. It was made in 1993, while the Satanic Panic was over by the end of the '80s.

  35. Forbidden Fruit

    This has nothing to do with Satanism, Bohemian Grove or any other supernatural bullshit. It's about powerful people abusing their power and rigging the justice system in their favor, like they do everyday. No aliens or reptilian creatures needed to make it more "interesting". All that does is make it seem less credible. (Which might be the point?)

    Child sexual abuse is about power and control as much as sexual gratification. These powerful men have lived privileged lives and have never been told "no". They're used to getting what they want and treating weaker people like animals. And why not? The legal system has given them free reign to do as they please.

    The takeaway message is this: Foster kids endure hideous abuse at the hands of foster parents and orphanages every single day in this country. These "wards of the state" belong to no one and will not be missed if they come up dead or shipped overseas for god knows what. They're over-medicated and under-loved. We all need to do a better job of watching out for them.

  36. BludBaut

    "Top Documentary Films" needs to get another source for this video. The citizens of this country need to see that our government is evil, protects evil and is no longer fighting for the right.

    This was true when the government murdered JFK and the FBI and the media covered it up and it was true when the Bankers put an illegal alien in office, though we didn't realize why until he gave them 7.7 TRILLION dollars of taxpayer money.

    Folks, if you're still watching the TV and reading the newspaper, you're a fool. The Internet is the only place you'll find the truth and you'll have to search for it here. It's not going to jump in your lap.

    The media and the government are our enemies; it's that simple. If you think the last election was legitimate, you're deceived.

  37. Sur Veilled

    I would really love to see someone provide access to a version that still
    has all the production credits still intact. That may help those of us
    who wish to verify credibility of this compelling video.

    Thank you "Top Documentary Films" for correcting the embedded video link to one that works. However, it was rather rude and unnecessary of you to remove my comment that pointed out the need for it while leaving intact the comment of BludBaut just below which does the same thing.

  38. Peter

    I don't profess to be an expert but from what I have read it appears that the abuse of children is thought of in some warped circles as enabling a powerful source of magical energy in those so doing. Its doesn't appear to have been the case here, since this seems to be a case of paedophile abuse for its own sick ends and power tripping. Either way It opens said individuals up to total control by those monitoring and recording such abuse. This makes them puppets to do their masters bidding rather than face the approbation of been outed for the child abusing scum that they are. Here in the UK (as of 2015) we have similar 'historical' cases surfacing from the 60's, 70's, 80's and beyond concentrated around our political 'elite' (I use the term loosely). However it seems the 'establishment' is doing all it can to prevent the investigation into the same going forward in a timely manner by for example appointing two 'chairs' of the same who were clearly unsuitable and had to be removed. Its not unusual since its is so often the case in this country that our public enquires drag on for years (and never conveniently reach a conclusion close to an election such as the one we have looming in May 2015 this year - god forbid if might influence the outcome!). Frequently the main guilty parties go unpunished or conveniently die (or become too 'ill' to prosecute) in the interim but any 'little people' will of course be squashed liked bugs and nailed to the wall for the degenerate scum that they clearly are! Welcome to western democracy - harsh and unfair if you get the wrong side of it.

    I agree wholeheartedly with you Peter, I watched with great interest when Dr, David Kelly was (in my opinion) murdered by, = who knows M15,MOD,??? My father took his own life after years of illness, (radiation poisoning in fact) at the age of 23, he was in the RAF, a young Bomber pilot, he was ordered to fly his Canberra bomber into the mushroom cloud of a nuclear bomb, - Grapple Yankee. He went through and hit a 'hot spot' irradiating him badly. Then they ordered him back into the cloud again. He slit his wrists in a forest, and bled to death.David Kelly's death was highly suspicious. I used to think Great Britain was Great, but I now know that there are some 'dark forces at work' and possibly in every corner of Government, Monarchy, Forces,Entertainment, everywhere, from the very top to the bottom of our society.

  40. corpus vile

    I have no firm opinion on the veracity of the Franklin allegations but it wasn't debunked "100%", as iirc Mr Bonacci was awarded $1 million in damages in civil court, which afaik King didn't contest. I remember reading that the plane crash which killed one of the investigators and his eight-year-old-son had suspicious elements to it also, such as the wreckage spanning quite a distance, implying it exploded in mid-air, although I'd need to research this aspect again.
    However the civil court award nullifies any claims of it being debunked "100%".

  41. corpus vile

    The documentary doesn't mention SRA and SRA (if you will) or isolated cases of it anyway have been documented to exist with convictions to prove it. The Satanic bs is just an excuse for bad people to do bad things and is used by the offender very probably simply to frighten their usually child victims into submission.
    While a moral panic did indeed ensue and claims of SRA were wildly exaggerated, exploited by fundamentalist groups, infused with hyperbole and outright lied about, the fact remains that documented cases have occurred with successful convictions.

    SRA had nothing to do with Franklin and wrt Franklin I suspect that the truth is somewhere in the middle but would be so far open minded on several possibilities.

  42. Lee

    Aug 2015 -When I saw this was an hour long I thought I would fast forward or not even watch to the end, but I was captivated and watching the turmoil Troy Boner was going through tore through my heart, he was (as were all the other victims) a youngster who was manipulated by the 'system'. I hope he and all the other victims find peace. I love children and can't bear to think that this is still happening, please make this come to an end. (I have dated this as cannot see when other comments were left & always find it useful to see how far back comments were made)

  43. The Southern Gentleman

    Under the picture it says this was never aired but another link I read that it was aired 3 or 4 times before stopping. So who is correct? And then we see that it is being aired on you tube so I guess it never was totally destroyed from the public being able to watch it or as some one has said recently so what it doesn't count that I lied now does it or better yet wipe it like use a rag to wipe it clean???
