    I don't think this pedophillia epidemic is really that new. It's s only because there are more of us today to report it and many more ways to make abuse known to the public. And I've noticed that individuals who claim abuse maybe 30 years ago have stepped up because of our changing social mores. Back in the day you better have had 100 eyewitnesses to bring down a pillar of society for "inappropriate touching" ".

    Thank you, and I agree.

    A child can lose there innocence at what age? It sucks that so many people take it so litely. If they would give much more stiffer penalties it would probably help cut it down. Now that they are releasing inmates, they have more room for them. What they need to do is make a cell block especially for pedophiles and rapists, lock them up with there own!
