This link was posted on the academic board, but there's probably more traffic on this board so I've reposted it here. In Borowick's response to CNN she uses the Ward judgment out of context to falsely claim that Ward gave TF a clean bill of health.

They continue their lies hoping to confuse the public. For example, in this latest PR spin she claims that suicide and violence are almost unheard of in their cult. Huh? Try telling that to all the kids who were/are beaten. And violence can be emotional/psychological as well as physical, and there was/is plenty of emotional violence/blackmail going on. And suicides are almost unheard of only because they try to keep them secrets. When a teen committed suicide in Japan many years ago, I only heard about it from a leader with loose lips who wasn't supposed to tell me.
