      Heard some interesting news.

      Today I was told that a friend of my family had been accused of child molestation. Sorta freaked me out. The guy was always really nice, he went to our church and he always seemed to be in a good mood and whatnot. It just seems a touch unfathomable.

      does anyone else find it funny that the following traits are considered "suspicious"?
      -Active in the christian youth community
      -Employed several young men in his landscaping company (who else do they expect to work landscaping? 33 year-old women with a B.S. in Liberal Arts?)
      -Outgoing
      -Lived alone after the death of his wife 6 years ago

      Seriously, I swear everyone has already hung this guy in their minds. Everyone is saying this garbage like "I had a feeling about him. He was always so giddy, and he was so excited about helping out with the boys' soccer."

      Yeah, practically a John Wayne Gacy. I personally don't think he's guilty. I really think he just happened to be a really nice guy. None of my friends or me ever felt uncomfortable around him, he never made any advances, or anything like that. I think that its just a case of sick and twisted parents who always think that nice people like that have ulterior motives.
      An idea is something you haven't fully considered.
      A belief is merely a repetitive thought.
      A conclusion is simply where you stopped thinking.

      umm this is entirely possible. i've had a friend for about 8 years now... i've met his dad and he always came off as a nice guy... i never had any second thoughts about him... well... this guy sexually molested his daughter... my friend's older sister. he seems as normal as you or me... yet he has these dark secrets...

      i'm not innocent
      you're not innocent
      no one is innocent

      also i don't think his religion should have anything to do with this... by today's world i'd trust an atheist over a catholic priest... so the thought that his religious ideals would have anything to do with him being a good person has no bearing.
      clear eyes. strong hands.

      Well what Loose whas saying is that being an active part of the church put him under suspicion. I dont think hes saying thats why hes less likely to have done anything.

      But yeah, the people who do this are often involved with thier neighboorhoods, and it can surprise thier closest friends, but I dont know this guy,and I dont know what happened.

      it seems to be quite frequent that people who are in a position of power, be it religious, church.schools, etc, then abuse it.... naive people will tend to trust these people.

      but then we have to ask ourselves, does this mean people are more likely to do these kind of things because of positions of power, or does it just tend to come to light because they are found out *due* to their postion of power?

      loose id - although it is harsh, people get the lessons that they
      a) need
      B) deserve

      i am not commenting either way on whether your friend is guily or not, as who am i to say?
      This reality is like a goldfish bowl. The dreamworld is the same, but larger. It's easy to get lost.

      Of course it is the people with positions of power who are guilty for the one reason that they have the choice. If i give you power you use it, simple.

      Then again the world is so complex with psychoes everywhere using the social values and meanings of society as an excure to be 'guilty' of much that we can hardly take the valour of pointing the finger.
      n00bs i love you

      Sex crimes are the hot topic of the decade...They needed something to replace the war on drugs when the focus started losing steam, so they pushed the bar up to bring focus and humiliation to yet another group of folks. Playing fear like an instrument, they'll make any stupid accusation just to bring in the sheep and polarize society.
      In this crazy world if they don't consider you mad, then you have no confirmation of your own sanity, do you?

      Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think that the legal system really cares about your "opinion". Let the evidence speak for itself. Neighbours of serial killers always say that "he was a really nice guy."

      No, the legal system never cares about anyone's opinion, regardless of its validity. That alone is the problem. That's the stuff that get's OJ off while putting pot smokers in jail...
