Default Former Los Angeles teacher charged with molesting 23 children

What a sick and demented individual.

Some of the photos showed girls with what appears to be a spoon up to their mouths as if they were going to ingest a clear-white liquid. A spoon and container found in trash in Berndt's classroom tested positive for semen, the sheriff's department statement said.
Hopefully it will be a long time before this man is allowed to walk among the streets with children again.

LOS ANGELES – A U.S. school teacher bound and gagged nearly two dozen children, put cockroaches on some of their faces and posed in photos with them, possibly inside a classroom, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said Tuesday.

A department statement said Mark Berndt, 61, was arrested Monday and remained jailed Tuesday on $2.3 million bail. The district attorney's office said Berndt has been charged with committing lewd acts with 23 boys and girls ages 7 to 10.

The investigation began when a film processor gave authorities about 40 photographs depicting blindfolded children in a classroom with their mouths taped shut.

Some of the photos showed girls with what appears to be a spoon up to their mouths as if they were going to ingest a clear-white liquid. A spoon and container found in trash in Berndt's classroom tested positive for semen, the sheriff's department statement said.

Some of the children's mouths and faces had large, live Madagascar-type cockroaches on them, according to the statement.

Some photos showed Berndt with his arm around the children or with his hand over their mouths.

"It makes you sick to your stomach," Los Angeles Unified School District Superintendent John Deasy told KTTV Fox 11 News, which first reported the arrest.

Berndt is charged with committing lewd acts between 2008 and 2010. He worked for more than 30 years at Miramonte Elementary School in south Los Angeles.

He was immediately removed and fired when police informed the school district, Deasy said.
No student came forward to report the abuse, he said.

The sheriff's department said a search warrant served on Berndt's home led to the discovery of more than 100 similar photographs depicting children.

A DVD depicting adult sexual bondage activity "which mirrored the bondage-type photos of the children" was also found during the search, the department said, noting that those images are not a crime.

The department said about 10 children seen in photos have not been identified.

Here in the UK an animal such as him would be found having 'committed suicide' (even though he may be on 'suicide watch' being checked every 15 minutes). To me death for him would be too kind.

Has anyone else noticed, that no matter how many teachers are convicted for molesting children, the Press never latches on to the idea of institutionalized pedophilia, like they do when it's a priest?

I would think though it would happen in other countries too! It usually happens with this sort of case, and with child murderers, murderers of the elderly/infirm, etc. We don't have the death penalty here, and a lot call for it, although of course it wouldn't occur in this case.

Sometime, I'd like to have a long discussion with you about where you think the British culture is headed. I'm not kidding about being a great admirier of the British. (Of course, I'm fond of the Irish too. It's sort of like having two beloved uncles that one must never, under any circumstances, have over to dinner on the same evening.)

I burst out laughing at your first sentence. Oh dear, don't get me started on that subject......

That is actually a really good point. I never thought of that. And you are one hundred percent right.

When you think about it, there are a lot more cases of sexual molestation and abuse by teachers than churches. Tons more.

I guess religion is just an easier target. That, or there is a lot of mean non-believers who stoop so low to where they attempt to lump religion and sexual abuse together as opposed to realizing the two are just not related.
