Not necessarily "sold " by the media. Movies yes, those inspired from real facts even if the truth is distorted . We all saw in news images with
pedophiles taken to court or arrested , that's how they look like.. Even online if you make a search i'm positive you will find the psychological
profile of a pedophile. Of course we can't generalize as that will be a big mistake.
Regrading the other part of your post , you are of course right and you make a good point, but you are forgetting the most important thing.
Brown in prime minister , he isn't any average guy down the street or at the pub, once he joins that game he assumes a responsibility and that is
dealing with these kind of things, with all kind of attacks , founded or not.
He becomes a public figure and is forced by his position to answer the citizens unlike your average Joe who should answer only to the proper
authorities and not to other citizens as he doesn't represents them, he doesn't use their money , he doesn't signed agreements with other countries
on their behalf, he doesn't take decisions that affects the life of millions of people , he doesn't sends his pub mates to Irak or Afganisthan (
maybe the last comparison was out of line, as if anyone else would have been in place of the current or ex prime minister would have probably done the
same regarding british troops in those areas...)
I don't know how things in UK are , but where i come from once you engage in political activity you assume a responsibility of dealing with these
kind of things , especially the races for any kind of candidacy are dirty and every person that engages knows that and assumes responsibility and
expects the worst to come up
Their families are instructed on how to act and what to listen and what to answer.
So, lets' not forget we are not talking about an average Joe here and you can't ask someone to put themselves in his situation only because of
If we were talking about a guy down the street this forum would have been addressed to a small community and we would all have been neighbours
