Singer R. Kelly, 52, is being held without bond in Chicago on charges that include producing child pornography and coercing minors to engage in sex. He faces similar federal charges in New York.
Unfortunately, Epstein and R. Kelly are not the only alleged sexual predators in the news.

Here are various reports of recent sexual abuse cases in the US.
More than three dozen suspected online child sex offenders were arrested in Aurora, Colorado, during Operation Broken Heart. The nationwide operation was led by the US Department of Justice and resulted in nearly 1,700 arrests during April and May. On June 11, 2019, the DOJ announced that its “task forces identified 308 offenders who either produced child pornography or committed child sexual abuse, and 357 children who suffered recent, ongoing or historical sexual abuse or were exploited in the production of child pornography.”
The operation targeted suspects who: (1) produce, distribute, receive and possess child pornography; (2) engage in online enticement of children for sexual purposes; (3) engage in the sex trafficking of children; and (4) travel across state lines or to foreign countries and sexually abuse children.

The Colorado Sentinel reports 32-year-old Raymond Fredericks was sentenced to 22 years in prison Tuesday after pleading guilty to a felony sex trafficking charge in May.
Todd Bush, a 42-year-old former teacher, was arrested in an undercover sting on July 18 after agreeing to pay $100 to who he thought was the mother of an 11-year-old girl for sex with her daughter, authorities said. He was charged with human trafficking of a child, obscene communication, and traveling to meet a minor for sex. Bush was already a registered sex offender and was on probation for a 2011 incident when he was busted in the sting last week.
On July 18, a federal jury in Baltimore convicted Ryan Russell Parks, 26, on two counts of sex trafficking a minor and one count of using the internet to promote a prostitution business.
Parks faces a minimum mandatory sentence of 10 years in prison and a maximum of life in prison for each of the two counts of sex trafficking a minor, and a maximum of five years in prison for using the Internet to promote a business enterprise involving prostitution.
The case was investigated by the FBI-led Maryland Child Exploitation Task Force (MCETF), created in 2010 to combat child prostitution, with members from 10 state and federal law enforcement agencies. (source)
A two-day undercover operation in Minneapolis–Saint Paul earlier this month resulted in the arrests of 11 people on sex trafficking charges:
Three people were arrested for sex trafficking and promotion of prostitution while eight people were arrested for solicitation of a minor or solicitation of prostitution under 16 years of age.
In the operation, 18 trafficking victims were recovered from trafficking situations and offered help through victim services. (source)
A former first-grade teacher at an Omaha elementary school has been given 50 to 100 years in prison for sexually assaulting students. Douglas County District Court records show that 31-year-old Gregory Sedlacek was sentenced Tuesday. He’d plead guilty to three counts of sexual assault of a child.
Yesterday, New Hampshire’s attorney general launched an investigation into the state youth detention center after two former counselors were charged with raping a teenage boy 82 times, at least once at gunpoint, in the late 1990s.
Last month, the head of a sex cult was found guilty on multiple charges in New York, reports NPR:
The leader of NXIVM, a group that espoused a philosophy of self-improvement but was accused of recruiting, grooming and even branding an inner circle of female sex slaves, was found guilty Wednesday by a federal jury in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Keith Raniere, who was known as “Vanguard,” was convicted on all charges, including sex trafficking, forced labor conspiracy, human trafficking and multiple counts of racketeering — including sexual exploitation of a child. (source)
The victims of sexual assaults by a former North Carolina teacher are filing a class-action lawsuit against the school district:
News outlets report the victims of Michael Kelly filed the complaint Tuesday against him, the New Hanover County Board of Education and others.
Kelly plead guilty last month to child sex charges. Investigators say Kelly abused nearly 20 victims. He’s worked for New Hanover Schools since 1992. (source)
Earlier this month, two concurrent Human Trafficking Task Force operations were conducted in the Cleveland region. A total of 49 arrests were made, and some of the individuals are facing felony charges of Attempted Unlawful Sexual Conduct with a Minor, Importuning, Possess Criminal Tools, and Attempting Corruption with Drugs, reports Richland Source.

Cases of child sexual abuse by clergy continue to be reported.
Thousands of allegations of child sexual abuse by Catholic priests, nuns, and members of religious orders have been made over the last few decades. Many investigations, trials, and convictions – and revelations about decades of attempts by Church officials to cover up reported incidents – have resulted. These offenses are not limited to clergy in the US – cases have occurred all over the world.
I think it is important to note here that my family is Catholic, so I know how painful this subject can be for some followers.
According to a 2009 report, the founder of a religious order that treats Roman Catholic priests who molest children concluded decades ago that offenders were unlikely to change and should not be returned to ministry:
As early as the mid-1950s, decades before the clergy sexual-abuse crisis broke publicly across the U.S. Catholic landscape, the founder of a religious order that dealt regularly with priest sex abusers was so convinced of their inability to change that he searched for an island to purchase with the intent of using it as a place to isolate such offenders, according to documents recently obtained by NCR.
Fr. Gerald Fitzgerald, founder of the Servants of the Paracletes, an order established in 1947 to deal with problem priests, wrote regularly to bishops in the United States and to Vatican officials, including the pope, of his opinion that many sexual abusers in the priesthood should be laicized immediately. (source)
Yesterday, a Florida minister and registered sex offender were arrested after authorities found child pornography on his home computer, reports the Associated Press:
Sarasota County Sheriff’s officials tell news outlets that 66-year-old Charles Andrews was arrested Tuesday. He’s charged with 500 felony counts of possession of child pornography and three counts of failing to meet sex offender requirements.
Andrews is a pastor at Osprey Church of Christ. Andrews also is a registered sex offender who was convicted in 2006 of second-degree sexual abuse in Alabama. Now he’s in jail, his bond set at more than $5 million. (source)
The Associated Press has a Sexual Abuse by Clergy page that is dedicated to coverage of cases.
Here is a sampling of recent cases they have documented:
- In Kansas, state authorities have opened more than 70 investigations into alleged sexual abuse by Catholic clergy after receiving over 100 abuse reports in less than six months, the Kansas Bureau of Investigation said Tuesday.
- Also in Kansas, a priest has been charged with one count of possessing child pornography.
- St. Norbert Abbey in Wisconsin has released the names of 22 priests who faced “credible” allegations of sexually abusing minors. The abbey says an independent review deemed more than 40 allegations credible.
- Last week, a former Alabama youth pastor was sentenced to 20 years in prison for sexually abusing a young girl.
- The Diocese of Crookston in Minnesota has reached a $5 million settlement with 15 people who were children when they were sexually abused by priests.
- A Texas jury has sentenced a former Roman Catholic priest to 18 years in prison for sexually assaulting an altar server over several years.
- Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel has charged a 57-year-old Detroit-area priest with sexually abusing a minor.
- Last Monday, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence, Rhode Island, released a list of clerics, religious order priests and deacons it deems to have been credibly accused of sexually abusing children.
- In Illinois, a priest was removed from pastoral duties in the wake of allegations of sexual abuse that took place two decades ago.
The Vatican has been in the news this week for a very disturbing reason.
A genetics expert retained by the family of a girl who went missing in 1983 said Saturday that a cavernous underground space near a Vatican cemetery holds thousands of bones that appear to be from dozens of individuals, both “adult and non-adult.”
The expert, Giorgio Portera, said the “enormous” size of the collection under the Teutonic College was revealed when Vatican-appointed experts began cataloguing the remains, which were discovered last week .
“We didn’t expect such an enormous number” of bones and other remains which “had been thrown into a cavity,” Portera said. “We want to know why and how” the bones ended up there. (source)

How prevalent is child sexual abuse?
While Epstein’s arrest has increased awareness of predatory behavior by the elite, the wealthy and powerful are not the only ones committing such heinous acts.
According to The National Center for Victims of Crime, the prevalence of child sexual abuse (CSA) is difficult to determine because it is often not reported. Experts agree that the incidence is far greater than what is reported to authorities.
Statistics below represent some of the research done on child sexual abuse.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Children’s Bureau report Child Maltreatment 2010 found that 9.2% of victimized children were sexually assaulted (page 24).
Studies by David Finkelhor, Director of the Crimes Against Children Research Center, show that:
- 1 in 5 girls and 1 in 20 boys is a victim of child sexual abuse;
- Self-report studies show that 20% of adult females and 5-10% of adult males recall a childhood sexual assault or sexual abuse incident;
- During a one-year period in the U.S., 16% of youth ages 14 to 17 had been sexually victimized;
- Over the course of their lifetime, 28% of U.S. youth ages 14 to 17 had been sexually victimized;
- Children are most vulnerable to CSA between the ages of 7 and 13.
According to Darkness to Light, a non-profit committed to empowering adults to prevent child sexual abuse, only about one-third of child sexual abuse incidents are identified, and even fewer are reported.
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children operates the CyberTipline, a national mechanism for the public and electronic service providers to report instances of suspected child sexual exploitation.
In 2018 the CyberTipline received more than 18.4 million reports, most of which related to:
- Apparent child sexual abuse images.
- Online enticement, including “sextortion.”
- Child sex trafficking.
- Child sexual molestation.
Since its inception, the CyberTipline has received more than 48 million reports.
Those statistics are grim.
Sex trafficking is a serious global issue.
There are various types of sex offenders and sex crimes, and that topic is beyond the scope of this article. Because sex trafficking and the vulnerability of minors are crucial issues, we will focus on them here.
US federal law refers to sex trafficking as any commercial sex act that is “induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person induced to perform such act has not attained 18 years of age.”
A recent report from Insider sheds light on just how many people are victims of sex trafficking.
The statistics are alarming and heartbreaking:
It’s estimated that there are around 4.5 million victims of sex trafficking across the world. And though it’s difficult to know just how many people are involved in sex trafficking in the US, the Polaris Project, a non-profit dedicated to ending human trafficking, received more than 34,000 reports of sex trafficking on its Human Trafficking Hotline between 2007 and 2017.
End Slavery Now, an anti-human trafficking and slavery organization, estimates many of those trafficked into the US come from countries like Mexico, the Philippines, Thailand, Honduras, Guatemala, India and El Salvador. But experts say that plenty of sex trafficking victims are from the US, too. (source)
The conclusion of the Insider report is chilling:
But the millions sex trafficked around the world don’t look like they do in movies. These people, often minors, can lead normal lives and pass through normal places, jobs, and homes.
The sex trafficking that goes on in the US largely takes place in a criminal underbelly ubiquitous in US cities and communities, which millions of Americans, for whatever reason, turn a blind eye to daily. (source)
There are various factors that motivate sexual predators.
Power, anger, and revenge are common motivators for sex offenders, according to Criminal Justice School Info:
It is mistakenly believed that sexual offenders are solely motivated by sexual gratification when they commit their crimes. Dr. Nicholas Groth developed three typologies to describe the motivations of rapists, two of which suggest sexual gratification is secondary. Anger rapists are fueled by rage towards their victims and rape is their way of seeking violent revenge. According to the Center for Sex Offender Management (CSOM), these rapists may actually be extremely discontent with another area in their lives and thus take out their frustration on their victims. “Anger rapists tend to use a significant amount of physical force when they subdue their victims – in most cases, far more force than is necessary to perpetrate the abuse,” adds the CSOM. Verbal abuse is also a common component of these types of violations that are generally impulsive – not planned.
Power rapists on the other hand are less impulsive and rely on psychological manipulation more so than physical violence to subdue and sexually assault their victims. “The power rapist was motivated by his need to control and dominate his victim, and inversely, to avoid being controlled by [the victim],” describes Dr. Lisak. Those who rape their domestic partners are often characterized as power rapists. There are also sadistic rapists who receive sexual or erotic gratification from exerting power and control over the victims they rape. “Because they have an erotic response to power and control, extreme violence and torture often characterize their assaults,” says the CSOM. “In many cases, victims of sadistic rapists are murdered during the assaults”. The CSOM adds that these types of rapes are least common and account for between 2% and 5% of cases in the United States. (source)
Repeat sex offenders do not necessarily target only one category of a victim or offend in the same manner, that report explains:
Dr. Lisak explains that a proportion of sexual offenders are ‘non-specialists’. “Multiple studies have now documented that between 33% and 66% of rapists have also sexually attacked children; that up to 82% of child molesters have also sexually attacked adults; and that between 50% and 66% of incest offenders have also sexually attacked children outside their families,” states Dr. Lisak.
Additionally, many of us tend to think a sex offender will keep on offending until he or she is caught. While in reality, recidivism does happen, it may not be as common as we think. According to Arkowitz and Lilienfeld, approximately 14% of sexual offenders reoffend within a five to six year period and 24% within a 15 year period. While this suggests recidivism is less often the case, it does suggest the longer it takes law enforcement to track down a sexual predator or criminal, the more likely he or she will reoffend. (source)
Not everyone who sexually abuses children is a pedophile, as Darkness to Light explains.
Child sexual abuse is perpetrated by a wide range of individuals with diverse motivations. It is impossible to identify specific characteristics that are common to all those who molest children. Situational offenders tend to offend at times of stress and begin offending later than pedophilic offenders. They also have fewer victims (often family), and have a general preference for adult partners.
Pedophilic offenders often start offending at an early age and often have a large number of victims (frequently not family members).
70% of child sex offenders have between one and 9 victims, while 20% have 10 to 40 victims. (source)
Often, sexual predators are people you know and trust.
It is important to understand that there are people who have or will sexually abuse children in churches, schools, and youth sports leagues, as Darkness to Light explains:
Abusers can be neighbors, friends, and family members. People who sexually abuse children can be found in families, schools, churches, recreation centers, youth sports leagues, and any other place children gather.
Significantly, abusers can be and often are other children.
About 90% of children who are victims of abuse know their abuser. Only 10% of sexually abused children are abused by a stranger.
Approximately 30% of children who are sexually abused are abused by family members. The younger the victim, the more likely it is that the abuser is a family member. Of those molesting a child under six, 50% were family members. Family members also accounted for 23% of those abusing children ages 12 to 17.
About 60% of children who are sexually abused are abused by the people the family trusts. (source)
Here’s how to keep your loved ones (and yourself) safe.
Sexual abuse is a challenging topic to discuss. It can be even more difficult when you’re talking about protecting your own children. Families can take steps to keep their children safe and give them the tools to speak up when something isn’t right.
Here is a list of resources that can help you keep your family safe.

It was not until I was much older that our mother told a dark secret about what happened to her as a child.
Apparently her stepfather liked boys & girls, and married her mother as there were 3 children. As I pieced the hisory together he molested the uncle & aunt but their mother sent the youngest daugher away to protect her. Little did she realized that her husbands bil was also a lover of chlldren and molested our mother.
Our mother survived it, bu was very protective of all her children because of what happened to her. It is a part of our history that I have shared with the grandchildren so that this does not happen to anyone in our family again.
There is a guaranteed .45 caliber cure for this kind of perverted behavior. We should eliminate these vermin from the gene pool.
This would certainly create the baseline for a deterrent. The cultural and social “tolerance” for such evil sure appears to have given a green light to the thought life of the perverted. No significant consequences for aberrant behavior has certainly led to it’s proliferation. Parents cannot stop being vigilant. Girls AND boys are targets. This is especially true if they are fetching in some way.
Sat on a jury trying a perv for “attempted” child molestation. It was two days getting a jury. People honestly stated that they did not think they could be fair and impartial. Even though it was obvious from a store video cam, the guy still arrogantly insisted on a trial. The sentencing was closed to the jury and the public. The boy was beautiful with long flowing hair. The attempt took place right in the father’s distracted presence at the pretzel stand!
If I may be so bold, apart from holding children near to us in public, I’d like to say that parents returning to the standard boy look and the standard girl look instead of creating sexualized, provocative adult-like clothing, would be a good starting point. As a Grammy, I disconnected myself from all the kid clothes company where I thought they were pimping children in their ads. (hmmm, they are going out of business…) Now I’m using up my quilting stash to make one of a kind girl clothes. The DILs are getting in on it too!
The sanctity of a child’s wholesomeness is very much a Victorian era accomplishment. We can bring that back without committing some of the other errors of that time.
It definitely feels like war has been declared on innocence. But sadly, it is nothing new!
I agree, Ray White! I have seen interviews carried out with convicted child molesters where they, themselves, say “don’t let me out; I will do it again.” A bullet is a lot cheaper than keeping them in prison.
There were FIVE arrests in Knoxville Tennessee for human trafficking. Three of the men were Hispanic, one was Caucasian and one unknown ethnicity.
Totally_Disillusioned, their respective ethnicities is not the issue. The key fact is that they were all male. When I was a prosecutor, I handled many cases of sexual molestation, almost all of them involved Caucasian perpetrators. All of them were male. Seems to me the important question is how we can better raise our young men so that NONE of them become abusers.
Precisely. And the promise and known sure consequence of “banishment” or “excommunication” — lifelong containment and isolation from the rest of society — for such offenses has shown through history to be a far greater deterrent from taking such a risk than any other, even the death penalty.
Thank you for your experience and wisdom.
There are studies emerging that indicate that, like antisocial personality disorder, not only is there no “cure,” but people with the pedophile syndrome often have noticeable physical characteristics: they’re usually a little shorter than average, usually male, and have an average lower IQ.
The priest who wanted to isolate them to an island had the right idea. At the least these people need to be kept away from society at large, whether in separate communities or special metal institutions. There’s no help for them, but that’s not a reason to tolerate them in the larger society where children are vulnerable.
Some suggest castration, but that doesn’t really make the urges go away, even if the major production organs of testosterone are removed. The body compensates. It’s not a solution, unless we’re required to believe all children possibly affected by these people will only ever be female, and that’s obviously not the case. Still, castration is a sure prevention of unnecessary pregnancy by a pedophile.
It’s a dilemma. We don’t want further and more invasive surveillance, yet we should have some kind of early testing that can say whether a person has some of the most important characteristics of this mental derangement, and therefore enable the rest of us more easily to keep an eye on him/her. Yet what about privacy and individual freedom for all of us, including them?
While “pre-crime” in a very limited way may be justified (I do not think it is, especially since we know that once begun, it does not respect boundaries and limits, and often gives false positives), still the individual rights of everyone must be protected, and so only when a person is actually caught enticing, seducing, soliciting, producing for consumption for profit materials and/or photos of children, or doing the act, is it right and lawful to arrest them and put them away from the rest of society. There can be no parole or early-outs for good behavior. It’s only the act — seducing, molesting, bribing, soliciting, coercing, posing children for photos, taking photos of children and then selling them, etc. — that is criminal; you can’t — and shouldn’t! — criminalize thoughts.
The reality of the mental syndrome must be recognized and respected and treated accordingly. Denial means more children must suffer, and every time a pedophile is caught, he/she will learn what not to do to prevent being caught again. It’s a lose-lose for kids.
One way to help minimize, if not completely prevent this, is to re-establish the family, and re-establish Christian morality.
While other cultures may tolerate or even permit this sexual preying on children, ours must not, and the best preventive is the Christian ethics that we’re all created in the image of God, and all people, especially children, are precious in His sight, and are not to be violated, but respected, cherished, and protected.
Guard and protect your little ones. Cherish them. Don’t allow them alone with anyone else until they’re old enough to defend themselves. Teach them to know what is good company and what is not. Teach them that they can talk to you about anything, and you will never be angry with them, and will always check out anything they think might be wrong. You will never require your child to be with someone he or she does not want to be with.
Get married and stay married “for the children.” Know your spouse well. Decide and determine to live without the sexuality society says is good, healthy, and fun. Know it for what it is and does, and love yourself, your spouse, and your children enough to banish is from your life.
Insist on the rule of any adult never being alone with any minor under any circumstances, no matter who that adult or semi-adult is. Never alone with pastor or “youth counselor” or “youth pastor.” Never alone. Insist on all adults being with parents and/or old ladies in schools and churches and other venues where children are out of sight of their parents.
Homeschool. If you don’t want your child preyed on, seduced, lied to, and lost to the sick sexual society we live in today, then don’t throw them into the cesspool. After all, that’s what a cesspool is, right? All that’s nasty, dirty, infectious, and rotting.
You are your child’s best and first line of defense against the real dangers in society. It’s not the jungle gym you should be worried about. It’s the social jungle of sexual and cultural Marxist predators surrounding the children today that will injure them for the rest of their lives.
Yes. That “profile” exactly fits the guy who was on trial when I sat on the jury for an attempted child molestation. It was very wise of that father to raise the attention of the store’s management, the police and for pressing charges.
A fellow we knew in a prison ministry told us 40 years ago that a thief can be taught to trust God but perversion cannot be rehabilitated. Tragic how the mind can get twisted if no one is paying attention to the slippery slope a child may be on in developing an unhealthy sexual outlook. I am afraid it is not going to get better when the unhealthy decide to start overwhelming the system in retaliation. A vindictive lot to be sure.
GreyCat, you seem to be under the mistaken impression that molesters of children are always a good deal older than the children are. There have been many cases involving young girls in particular being incestuously molested by their older brothers or male cousins. So, you can’t assume that keeping the children away from adults will protect them from being molested. Also, don’t assume that “Christians” won’t sexually molest children. I recall one case in particular that I prosecuted in which the molester of a young girl was a Christian minister who, among other things, held her against her will and forcibly inserted a ruler (you can guess where). Many molesters hide behind their positions of authority and presumed virtue in their respective communities to prey on children and teenagers. One thing such molesters often do is threaten the child or teenaged victim saying that no one would believe that victim if they came forward and accused the molester because the molester holds such a respected position in the community.
Yes. I do understand that not all pedophiles and molesters are adults. Yes, I do understand that (from personal experience, probably) most are relatives. Yes, I do understand that being Christian is no guarantee of any child’s safety. Neither is parents being married. Yes, I believe it is imperative that people learn to be suspicious of all authority figures.
But what I’ve suggested is at least a start to turning this situation around. And I still insist that genuine Christians who are married parents and cultivate a vital, trusting relationship with their children, where the children can feel totally safe telling their parents anything, with the assurance that they will be believed over anyone else, is the best defense against training children to be clueless victims.
The tenets and doctrines of genuine biblical Christianity — not any denomination, but the immutable principles of ethics and morality and personal responsibility toward not just oneself but all others, too — are the best, most complete set of “how-to-behave” and training for a responsible and responsive conscience social principles to be found. It’s not about self-indulgence or animal rights. It’s about treating others with due respect and protecting the weakest, most helpless and vulnerable among us. Anyone familiar with the Christian Gospels knows what Jesus had to say about anyone who preyed on children. It ain’t a pretty picture.
And once pedophiles are detected (hopefully, not just as a consequence of a molestation or worse finally coming to light), I firmly believe they should be forever isolated from the rest of society. Period.
I don’t believe in killing them; that is not going to “thin” their numbers from the gene pool as much as people may like to believe. Their condition is a genetic defect, and not their fault. And I suspect it has been present in many cultures where it has been simply accepted as it cannot be changed, to varying degrees, so the gene pool potentially holds a lot of it.
Proper moral training is a game-changer. Those who will not or cannot develop the curbs to their impulses and extend their thinking beyond their own desires will be outed by their own aberrant behavior, and then the larger society can deal with them. As it is now, cultural Marxism’s siren message is Alistair Crowley’s: Do what thou wilt.
We have been conditioned to follow that maxim like sheep. But those of us who are finally seeing the evil and the error must take the requisite steps to overturn it and send it back down that black hole forever, or we’ll all sooner or later end up there. And it’s our children and theirs (assuming that enough of them will have children to matter) who will — who are, right now! — pay the death bounty over their heads because of this dedicated overthrow of Christian morality.
Other than sterilizing ourselves and each living in his own isolated, fully-independent and razorwire-surrounded compounds, while there are fewer and fewer children until there are finally none, as a prosecutor with experience with these mentally defective people, where would you start?
Have you seen
I ask because using US government-supplied facts and figures, the author undercuts the conventional narrative, and you may want to see a different perspective.
I have gone through the site a little bit, finding it very informative.
Dagny, your superb research and writing has rocketed through the alternate (meaning truthful) media today. I stuffed your title into DuckDuckGo.com to pull up some excellent examples of reprinting, here:
And that’s just today’s results. Reprinting tends to keep happening for a few more days.
“Dagny Taggart”, your article is quite interesting and addresses an important problem. However, in the section where you mentioned the sensationalized article in the Italian press about a jumble of bones being discovered under the Teutonic College you failed to mention the important point that portions of that College were actually built over the grounds of the old cemetery. Since it was not uncommon in the past, in times of plague, for example, for large numbers of people (young and old alike) to be hurriedly buried in one spot without normal burial rituals, it seems likely that the bones that were discovered will turn out to be very, very old.
Here’s some information I learned when I was a member of a Mayor’s Task Force on Domestic Violence, which I’m posting in the hope that it might help someone else. If you have a young child or are a caregiver or teacher of a young child here are some of the signs to watch for that could indicate the child is being sexually molested by someone: Has a previously outgoing, friendly child become withdrawn, shy, or fearful? Has a child who was a good student started to get bad grades or started to want to stay home from school for no apparent reason? Has a child who previously enjoyed visiting a certain relative or a certain friend’s home started to ask if they can stop visiting that relative or friend? Has a child suddenly started to ask if a certain person not be allowed to babysit them anymore? Has a child started talking about or otherwise showing interest in sexual topics that seem too advanced for that child’s age? Has a child started to “act out” (with dolls or with other children) what appear to be sexual acts? Does the child have unexplained bruises, cuts, or marks on his or her body? Does the child have a rash or unusual discharge in or on their private parts or mouth? . . . and here’s a bit of a rant based on some of the molestation cases I prosecuted . . . Mothers of young and teenage children be sure to tell your children 1) that it’s O.K. for them to talk to you about anything, 2) that no one has the right to touch their private parts unless it’s a medical professional and you are there with them, and 3) that no one is really going to kill you or otherwise hurt you or break up the family if your child reveals what that person has done to them. Mothers, do not let your emotional or physical need to have a man in your life blind you to the possibility that that man could be molesting your children! ALWAYS believe your child if he or she tells you her or she is being molested or otherwise abused. No, your teenage daughter is not “leading” her stepfather “on” despite what he may tell you! Protect your child; throw the bum out!
Thank you for all your insights. And also, thank you for doing what must have been such traumatizing but necessary work!
Thank you Daisy. Yes, it was rather traumatizing in the sense that it showed me a very seamy side of life that (because I had been raised in a somewhat privileged and sheltered environment) I had previously never known existed. I was a prosecutor for about three years, and because I was one of the few female prosecutors in my department I tended to be assigned a lot of sexual molestation, rape, and domestic violence cases – I guess because my boss felt that the mostly female victims would feel more comfortable talking with me. After I left that position, it took me many years before I could meet a new person (even a minister, doctor, or priest) without secretly wondering what evil things they might be up to that they were hiding from the world. Thankfully, gradually my faith in the goodness of the majority of humans was restored.
YES! Thank you!!!
Thank you GrayCat. As you can tell, the subject of protecting children from predators still affects me at a “gut” level.
We need to reestablish the death penalty for rape, at least in certain cases. There’s no “cure” for these “poor sick individuals”. And I dispute the findings in the article that state that not every rapist will reoffend. Perhaps a very few won’t, but it seems that the majority will.
Unless they’re dead.
I wonder who will be the first that comes to an untimely death through an “accident”
He died just after trailer launched. It’s not only people it’s the government. Look at how well epstines wlwikinpage is scrubbed of any mention of a Democrat expecially bill c.
I live in a small town. We just had a middle school teacher (female) arrested for having sex with a minor boy. This is nothing new. With social media came illicit communications that leave a big trail. Before there will only phone records but not real proof of what was said. Now there is sexting along with the dubious texts that give an iron clad witness to the nature of the contact. It is sadly revealing just how deep this goes and how depraved society has evolved.
Sex offenders should not get procreation rights. The earth is way to overpopulated from sex populations and their complete bankrupt culture.
All of this is bad. all people are a suspect including YOU. I have seen people taking advantage of lesser dominant people. I am an A sexual and see this all the time old, middle, and underage people trying to lure them to be on one side or the other. I hate people abusing people and it is not right if you are in the spotlight or not.
There are two types of people in this world. The type who wants to be left alone and the type who won’t leave people alone.
To answer your question, I think its both. While its true we are hearing about it far more now thanks to the internet and limitless access to informational sources as well as NGO’s who have made it their mission to combat this evil, its also true that sex crimes, or more specifically, sex trafficking is on the rise. Criminal org.’s are realizing that sex trafficking is easier and more lucrative than drug trafficking. The new model is far more profitable for them. Instead of a resource that has to be reacquired every time its sold, a human being only has to be acquired once and can be used over and over again. Its happening everywhere, and often right under our noses. Another great org. and resource for your above list is OurRescue.org
