Ok, my brother ( in arms, if not in intelligence ), I am offended by your monkeylike attitude of 'might makes right' ...

Marines ... not the sharpest tools in the shed ...
There is A LOT of information missing from the original article, yet it is written with plenty of keywords to get an emotional response from the reader.
How is this the parents fault?
Do you know every single person your child may be hanging out with?
The fact is as kids get older, you have to give them room. They go out to hang with their friends. All you can do is hope you taught them right from wrong and that they make good decisions.
Kay Griggs, wife of colonel George Griggs, USMC (retired USMC Commandant): 29th Commandant of the Marine Corps, found ... all » her husband's diary, which contains details of homosexual blackmail in the top ranks of the US Marine Corps and names leading politicians and military leaders. Kay Griggs's information about the US government also comes from observations and people she met. She exposes initiation rituals, the raping of young men and blackmail and murders to keep people quiet. Much of this, according to Griggs, is related to secret society activity and she names figures like Henry Kissinger and a string of other top government individuals..

Yes i did notice that when i first read the article. I also noticed where it said that the little girl told the investigators that she " had sex with the marines", not that she accused them of rape. However because of the girl's age they have to charge them with rape as in most, if not all, states an adult having sex with a child of that age is legally rape. As far as if she lied about her age, i would have to say it's still the fault of the men involved for not making sure that she was of legal age. It's not that hard to do, in most states when a girl is of legal age ahe has a drivers licence or state ID.
The parents are at fault here because they allowed their 12 year old daughter to hang out with a 33 year old woman over a period of several months, either with or without knowing what was going on. I'd be mighty suspicious of a 33 year old person that wanted to hang out with my 12 year old child and damn sure wouldn't allow it.
You'd better believe i did when they were 12 years old. I always made it a point to know who all my son's friends were, and attempted to get to know them well so i knew what kind of kids they were associating with, it's called parenting. As a matter of fact even when my boys were 17 and up i still knew just about everyone they hung around with as they were all usually at our house.
I'm sorry but IMHO there is no excuse for a parent allowing their 12 year old child to hang around with a 33 year old other than poor parenting skills.
This is true, however at the age of 12 the amount of fredom this girl was given was way too much. Puberty is a time when kids really need parents to be actively observing what's going on with their children, not allowing them to run off with adults almost 3 times their age to god knows where to do god knows what. This also was not a one time thing, this went on for several months the parents were definately neglegent.
We are talking about 18 and 19 year old males. Having been one myself at one point in time, I can honestly say never did it occur to me to ask a girl who wanted to sleep with me for ID. These are guy who were at a party and partying with a women who was 33. In my eyes it is not too much different than a 21 year old man hanging out at a bar, meeting a girl then later finding out she was 15. At some point he has a right to expectation and I certainly wouldnt be expecting a 33 year old to bring a 12 year old to a party.
I too would be very suspicious of a 33 year old hanging out with my 12 year old child and I also would not allow it, again though... what if they did not know? You can not act on something you know nothing about. I am not saying the parents are right or wrong, but I am saying the article does not provide enough information to judge these parents.
Sadly not all parents are like that and not all kids allow that.
I was not one of those kids that had my friends come to my house. I went to theirs. My mother did not know who all my friends were, cause in my brilliant opinion at the time, it was not her business. Again, everyone is casting a lot of judgment without knowing any details.
Agreed, but is it a matter of parenting skills if you have no knowledge?
Would they be negligent if they both worked and had jobs and had no choice but to trust in their child to make good decisions?
I grew up in a single parent home, someone had to pay the bills so you can believe that I had plenty of unsupervised time as a kid at the age of 12... would that make my mother negligent as well? Do you have any idea how many kids come home from school to an empty house? They used to be called "Latch Key Kids".
