I was trembling when I read this..my hands are still shaking. The sad thing is
wherever you go or live there are always these dangerous misfits(that's
what I call them) What a wise Mother to teach her child that password and the
other boy. I'm so grateful those children are safe. But isn't it a
shame that our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren have to grow up
and experience these awful situations. I hope everyone read this - it's an
eye opener and a safety guideline.
When my dad was a teenager he hitchiked to his diving practice. One day he
caught a ride in a truck. The man driving showed my dad pn then exposed himself,
and my dad was lucky to get away. He used that example to teach us about
"stranger danger." Note the orientation of the man in the scout story
and also the orientation of the truck driver in my dad's story.I think there needs to be stronger laws involving crimes where the perpetrator
is the same gender as the victim, and grooming should be illegal. Such acts are
much more destructive to the victim, and need to be punished more harshly.
Second offense should result in life imprisonment.
kudos to the PARENTS too. i've heard of this procedure but never in this
context. these people must be excellent parentsor i hope so
Excellent article and I do hope and pray that the perpetrator is caught soon and
put away in jail. Way to go boys.
