Alan Jones groomed school boys - Time for the Royal Commission to investigate

This petition had 735 supporters

Documented evidence against Alan Jones for child grooming is well-known and freely available in the book Jonestown (2006) with extracts detailing the child grooming easily accessible on the internet. The allegations include that Alan Jones sent love letters to school boys, had boys in his room late at night and perved on them in the shower when he was a teacher at The King’s School in Sydney in the early 1970’s. This behaviour led to Alan Jones’ forced resignation in 1973.

Below is an extract from the book.

Jonestown: The Power and The Myth of Alan Jones – Author: Investigative journalist Chris Masters 

Extract as written in the SMH regarding Alan Jones time teaching at The King’s School 1970-73:

“By 1973 Alan’s impassioned support of some and lack of empathy for others became too great an issue to be ignored. There was deepening anxiety about continued late-night excursions to Jones’s room. Chris Simkin was often in the room with Alan until late at night. “I was in there for hours. The door was never locked.” Simkin says they used to watch The Ernie Sigley Show on television.”

“Scott Walker, another constant visitor, began to feel violated. “If you had muscle strain he would insist on strapping your legs. He would take you into the shower and tell you to take your clothes off. I was shattered with awkwardness. It was weird and uncomfortable and seemed voyeuristic.”

“Housemate Brian Porter says: “I never saw a breach of fiduciary duty. I never saw evidence of predatory behaviour. But he was manipulative and voyeuristic. He would love watching athletes on television and film. He saw the beauty of the human form in full flight. He loved the strength, the freshness and the vitality of boys.”

“Disquiet about Jones’s attachment to some boys grew during a term break when one of the masters found a letter, written by Jones to a boy, that had been left behind in a classroom desk. In it Alan spoke of thinking about the boy late at night, expressing his love. While love letters to boys were hardly appropriate, neither were they regarded as smoking gun evidence of misbehaviour.” (Click here to read more)

If a teacher had children is his room late at night on a regular basis now days the school would have no choice but to ring the police. The police would also need to be called if a teacher was sending love letters to school boys and making boys take their clothes off to shower so the teacher could have a perve.

Alan Jones has never answered the allegations made against him while he was a teacher at The King’s School. The Child Abuse Royal Commission should investigate given it also involves a school cover-up as well as blatant child grooming.
