Sword and Scale Episode 6

Sword and Scale Episode 6

This is the conclusion to a two part saga involving the organized abduction and abuse of children and ritualistic murders by satanic cults allegedly headed by the top levels of government at a mysterious all-male retreat known as Bohemian Grove.  We tell the tale of what has become to be known as The Franklin Coverup and follow the trail of young Johnny Gosch and several other youngsters who were persecuted by the very system that was supposed to protect them, all for sharing their nightmare with us.  Witness intimidation kept this story under wraps, but some individuals took the fall while countless others probably got away with outright murder.

    This is the craziest story I ever heard, and what’s sick is it’s probably still going on. And this kid, now a man, is still out there, still living the horror, and probably perpetuating horrors, as well; a really severe Stockholm Syndrome, like Bonacci.

    Oh, and the guy hit by the car? My new fav person, too. Imagine just kicking it with him!

    If her son had come home, why did she not try to keep him from his captors? It seems like she let him go back to them. It’s all very strange and horrific.

      I was wondering the same thing! This was almost unbelievable to me. Totally baffled.

  • Rachel Eve Newman

    I mean it seems to me that if he made it his way home, he wouldn’t be in grave danger, but at a prime opportunity to report a crime, and clearly had already escaped. She also does not elaborate on how she is supposed to help. Also, why did she not report it to the police that night and how was it so easy for him just to slip into the night without even saying he will be back or how to reach him or that he will reach back out to her? Just another disappearance? I mean.. is he really still “missing” if he came back and chose to leave again?

    My next questin is, how do we know that those photos of him are authentic and why were they sent to her? I can’t imagine that if they were trying to run a sex ring they would even care to send her photos of him. It seems that someone would send photos of her son if they were trying to taunt her, trying to be caught or asking for some sort of ransom or something. Doesn’t make sense.

    I’m not sure how I feel about this episode. This is an EXTREMELY hard pill to swallow. The implications are so totally beyond anything that I can honestly accept. Did anyone else feel like the mom was a little kooky?
