The Real 'True Detective'?

10533 ratings | 1559858 views
Ten years ago, the town of Ponchatoula, Louisiana, was traumatized when a local church's secret Satan worship, ritualized child molestation, and animal sacrifices came to light. Rust Cohle may be a fictional character, and time may not really be a flat circle, but that sounds an awful lot like the events of the first season of HBO's hit True Detective. In this episode of our brand-new series The Real, we went down to Ponchatoula to meet Stuart Murphy and Tom Tedder, two law enforcement officials who helped put these terrible, true events in Ponchatoula's rearview mirror.

Doing a story about child molestation. Uses the phrase 'got off' regarding individuals who may have escaped prosecution. Um...

The detective is awesome!
Really it was more than 2 people who solved it? Hollywood tricked us? Of course it was more than two people solving the case you fuck head how are they going to translate that in the movie? Having like 15 main characters? 🤦‍♂️

Funny how there is no evidence that there were 'Satanic" rituals, but there IS lots of evidence supporting these were rituals were done in conjuction with some type of Christianity, and yet the satanic headlines persist.

He turned himself in for a reason. Those rituals were for power, he dedicated those kids to Satan which mustve been part of a deal. I wonder what he hears in his cell?

that trey Bernard guy is about the creepiest looking mf I've ever seen. I think I would've ran if I ever saw him in real life. he looks like Vincent d'onofrio in that scene in The Cell where he's torturing vince Vaughn. he's got those creepy little teeth. also those drawings are very disturbing. especially the one with the mermaid looking thing or w/e it was...I don't even wanna know.

i'm so split when this kind of stuff is revealed. i think reporting on this will feed a certain % of people that has had these thoughts to make them real. then again books movies tv-series gossip has passed stories on for decades. i wasn't molested when i was little i was beaten up for being different. it finally stopped when i turned 15 and was stronger than my father that beat me.

Unfortunately the commonly reported story is not the whole story. Following the standard pattern of Satanic Ritual Abuse allegations, there was no physical evidence of any abuse taking place: no pentagons drawn in blood on the church floor, no physical injuries found after a baby was supposedly raped repeatedly. Louis Lamonica’s sons both recanted their story of being raped and talk of being brainwashed by their mother, who had left Lamonica before his confession and pushed him to document sinful thoughts in a diary as if they were real events. True Detective is a ‘what if’ story of a universe where urban legends and scary campfire stories can come true. And that makes sense – you can’t experience true cosmic horror in a world where our worst fears turn out to be hysterical illusions. Perhaps we collectively have a psychological need for at least some monsters to be real, but our weakness for narratives of evil can end up hurting people and destroying families. Fiction aside, Lamonica and Bernard are still serving seven life sentences between them. In a just world, the popularity of True Detective would be an opportunity for their supporters to gather momentum for an appeal. I hope that the Hosanna Church case is truly the last gasp of the moral panic of Satanic Ritual Abuse, and that we learn its lesson: one of the true horrors we face is humanity’s endless capacity for group-think, self-deception and misdirected aggression. https://courses2.cit.cornell.edu/sociallaw/student_projects/FalseConfessions.html
They found tons of CP on their computers you dumbass. Even if they weren't doing satanic rituals, they were still pedophiles.

So let me get this straight. Satanists molest children, yet somehow Christianity is to blame? Genius people in the comments and the likes these comments have.

When you build the Town with so much good and salt of the earth folks, the vileness finds it to be the perfect cover. So while you are at your Church look around you, for the signs that someone is there for things other than the majority. Look at the Catholic Church if you need some clarification. Satanism is not the thing that People think it is, that is why no one realizes the most vile child molesters are wearing the cloak of righteousness and they will come across as AMAZING even INSPIRATIONAL men or women of the Lord. That is your flag, they stand out because they must be over the top in the appearance and how much trust you put in them. Now watch your child around them while you are also meeting them, when they go behind you, PAY ATTENTION, don't do as most do and pull them around and say this is Father Sister Monk or Bishop or whatever title they present and call them a safe person. The child has instincts, believe them. The DEVIL worship is just designed to Scare and traumatize the victims into silence, and the allegiance of the followers, they probably used drugs that enhanced the positive feelings when they wanted them to feel it, and scary hallucination inducing drugs when they wanted to ensure the silence. For instance if a guy can kill a cat so easily without even feeling a thing, you are just a big cat, he will just use a larger knife. By the way people living at a church unless they are all males or exclusively all females period, are a cult, not a faith.

Mandy McManus (4 months ago)
I don't know. No physical evidence and no victims, except two that recounted. It's possible that these things happened, but it's also possible that there was a mental breakdown and a few false confessions. It has happened many, many times.
Mandy McManus (4 months ago)
I'm only a few minutes into it, but so far it seems like a mass hysteria, false memory\ false confession type of case.

IDK how they hold back their feelings when interrogating someone. The second they said they discussed sleeping with their kids as a normal part of their congregation, I’m sure I would have reacted with some disdain. That cop held his shit and took down these sickos. What a fucked up church.

The fucked up thing, right at the start, guy says " yes, lots the child molestation cases here, but the worst part was that it was a Satanic Child sex cult."  I guess child molestation is bad, but worshiping a fake god is worse, that's the real fucked up thing

Very interesting, good to see that the FBI is doing something besides trying to rig an election. So what happens when the FBI decides to target a church and finds that there is nothing there, that the people are just regular Church goers? Do they then move on to other cases or do they keep working the case trying to frame the church members, causing accidents, sowing discord, and disrupting the church like it was an armed black panther chapter from the 60s? There is a growing body of evidence that the when the FBI cant find what they are looking for they will actively engineer it or seek to destroy the target because they apparently have a budgett surplus and extra down time and want to make GS10. When they find out the people are innocent they work double time trying to engineer a crime. From Richard Jewel to Steven Hatfill to Sheryll Atkisson what you see is an FBI that is out of control. Thats a shame. Whose the real criminal?

Aaron Johnson (6 months ago)
They presented almost no proof that any of this stuff happened outside of the confessions. I'm not saying that none of these things happened, but they convicted two guys based on bizarre confessions, which contained some impossible details (face changing), and no testimony from, or evidence of, any actual victims. I guess their kids corroborated some of the molestation stuff, but then there was that weird drawing of a devil by the kid, which is again an impossible thing. I kept thinking there was going to be some kind of McMartin preschool twist at the end of the story. And the reporter took everything the investigators said as truth. I don't fully doubt the legitimacy of the case, but vice isn't exactly 60 Minutes.
