I remember growing up being told that you must have two eye witnesses to report any kind of abuse or misconduct. The example my parents literally used was that if you were raped by an elder, unless someone else saw you could not and should not report it to the elders because it could be considered made up and you will get in trouble for speaking badly about an elder. .. .... WHAT?!? So unless someone is in the room, watching me get violated I have to keep it to myself? If that 2nd person did see, they would either stop it then or not tell anyone because it was probably another pedophile elder. However on a smaller issue, say my best friend seeing me kiss another witness boy, only one witness was needed to send up both directly to the dreaded back room. So elders raping kids is fine, unless they do it in front of a crowd of course, but a simple kiss leads to intrusive questioning of a 13 year old without their parents present. What a corrupt cult!!
