Seems to me that some people still have misplaced faith in "the system".
Why do some people rob banks? Because that's where the money is. Likewise, if some sicko perv wants to get at little kiddies, where would be the
first places to look? Organizations that offer relatively unfettered access to them en masse, especially if those organizations have the full trust
and support of the parents (or the community in general) who would not suspect a thing.
True story: When I worked for the county sheriff's office, a lieutenant diaper dick (I'm sorry, "juvenile detective") was outright busted using
the state's computers to arrange a "meeting" with a young boy down in Georgia. Nothing criminal was ever brought up against him, because he was
very well-connected and was on the board of Police & Fire Commissioners in his hometown. So the disgusting d-bag got a pass with just being fired. Not
more than a couple weeks later, his wife outright busted him trying the same BS again (from his home computer this time) and he was essentially
driven out of town with divorce proceedings on the way (not sure why it took the 2nd incident, but w/e). Who knows how long this kind of thing had
been going on... I mean, who would ever suspect?
It just baffles me that in this day and age of rampant lying, secrecy, and corruption, how anyone can just blindly trust total strangers without even
a shred of skepticism when it comes to matters such as this. These Wal-Mart wunderkinds may have been under pressure to report any minor little thing
they happened to see, or they might have thought that they were doing their best to "protects teh children" (and subsequently be touted as heroes)
however the reality is that they exposed these kids to an unbelievable amount of risk and unnecessary trauma, and I sincerely hope when (not if) the
parents win their case, that they pay a little bit of that settlement forward to help other kids who are in abusive situations and are struggling to
find some help.
