Presumably the parents of the kids who were victimized are rather forgiving.
 
2019-02-10 01:03:46 AM  
The scary part of this remains that the kids were too terrified to tell their parents of the sexual abuse. Terrible shame the abusers felt safe because they left their worries of being caught at the International Date Line.

I am usually not in favor of the death penalty, but I could be fair easily persuaded to swing back around in this case...and deliberately slow would hardly be a deal breaker...

I find it highly improbable that these men stopped their acts upon returning to the US.  Especially if they received no real treatment.

Oh, they could be charged... I'm thinking a 100,000 volt electric shock might do the trick...

These are the only victims to have spoken out.  I'm sure there are others too, these were only vulnerable during those trips with those guys.  Where's the victims from the rest of their lives?  Jerry Sandusky didn't just rape boys in one location.  He took them on trips, and had them stay in his basement.

It's not the volts but the amps. 100k is doable with static.

Now, 12 V with internal resistance of about a fiftieth of an ohm...

600 A. That's better.

Ungodly?

Mary was likely 12 or 13 when she was married off to Joseph and then molested by God.

So child molesting is quite Godly indeed.

Thomas Jefferson started raping his wife's half-sister when she was 14, so its also what the Founding Fathers intended.

You know it sounds like these guys were committing their crimes in the Philippines and Brazil.  As much as I despise Duterte, I am sure we can work out an extradition deal with him, and he would be more than willing to personally see that Justice was done.  I heard that evil man may have a soft spot in his heart.  The pedophile missionaries probably deserve to find out.

What is also really farking disgusting, is that the missionary churches in the 1980s were using words like primitive and savages to talk about the tribal peoples they were trying to convert to their way of life.  The farking missionaries were turning their children over to the care of pedophiles, and they thought the tribal people were the savages.  At the same time tribal people across the world, including Native Americans in America and Canada, were fighting to keep their kids from being taken from them, which the government was doing and then temporary placing in the homes of Christians and Mormons, were many of them were raped and molested by a bunch of god botherers who thought that they were doing god's work.

Thomas Jefferson was only doing what everyone else was doing back then apparently.

"The pattern of late and non-universal marriage restricted fertility massively, especially when it was coupled with very low levels of childbirth out of wedlock. Birth control took place by delaying marriage more than suppressing fertility within it. A woman's life-phase from menarche (which was generally reached on average at 14 years, at about 12 years for elite women[6][7]) to the birth of her first child was unusually long, averaging ten years.[8][9]"

Very Game of Thrones-ish way of doing things.

There was actually a Batman novel where he found and infiltrated an underage human trafficking ring. It did not go well for the traffickers.

I don't remember if Batman broke his one rule, but I'd have preferred the ending of the Predator comic when he finds the family that molested their kids and filmed it in the basement.

Abusers generally are charming, good looking, outgoing and trustworthy.  Society needs to let go of the idea of the pedo-mustache and the creepy bug eyed guys.  Abusers look like us, and on the surface, they act like us.

You can flood this thread with creepy looking folks who have been caught, and it won't be even a single percentage point of all the abusers at there.

Not sure what that has to do with raping your teenage slave.

But I'll use this excuse to drag in another fun Founding Fathers slavery fact: George Washington got his first slaves when he was 12 (inherited from his uncle).  Ponder that - a 12 year old owning human beings. Guess the lack of internet porn was no problem.

Yeah, different time and all that. But don't quote those guys like they were some all-wise gods whose pronouncements are eternal wisdom. Because by today's standards, they were pretty awful, so what was wise in their time isn't necessarily wise today.

There is NO treatment. If you want to fark kids there isn't a pill that fixes that. There's really only one cure and its 100% effective and its called Death. You are defective and no longer a viable member of society and rather then wasting in jail accomplishing nothing, die already.  Its the same idiots who think if you are attracted to the same sex you can be converted...

khatores: Presumably the parents of the kids who were victimized are rather forgiving.


Probably. The abuse likely went both ways ("dorm moms" abusing as well) but it was all swept under the rug in the name of protecting the mission. Because, as we all well know, God would want them to protect the mission and not their own kids.

I've worked around children, on and off, for much of my adult life - church, Boy Scouts, and so on - and every single organization I've been associated with has absolutely ironclad and inflexible rules about adult interaction with children. In all of these you could never, ever, be alone with a child or children, for any reason. The exceptions - licensed therapists, pastors, and others who did need one-on-one time - implemented any number of safeguards to ensure the safety and security of all involved. My daughter's teen pastor has three - three - web cams in his office (and he points them out to anyone who's in there) that feed a server in the district office in another city. The video is encrypted, and it's the only software I've ever seen that requires three passwords. I only remember a couple of times over the years when encrypted office video was reviewed, and it was a freakin' big deal every time.

Where did you get that I was saying it was alright ?
I was just pointing out that Jefferson was doing what was more or less normal back then.
I was pointing out that people were more Game of Thrones than we like to think our not so distant past were like.
But yes, different times were different.
There are movies from the 80's of underage kids pretending to be older to hook up with older people.
Stuff that was normal or funny for the time but horrible now, hell. Theres even a meme about it.

It is pretty much standard procedure anymore (unfortunately) that adults (men, that is) NEVER put themselves into any situation where they may be accused of any kind of crime. This means never be alone with any young woman, or maybe any woman, you keep the doors open in your office, you don't make any situations where you are one-on-one with another person and there is not kind of oversight.

I had college professors who would refuse to talk to you unless their door was wide open. It was just their policy--they wanted to protect themselves.
that said--I'd never, ever go to a counselor who had cameras in there with us.

Mikitson said she had only one roommate at the time - Brooks' own daughter - but that didn't deter him.
"She would fall asleep, and he would just sit on my bed and stay too long," Mikitson recalled.


So he was sitting there feeling her up while his farking daughter was sleeping a few feet away.
and to think I used to like David Brooks. I don't know how he's kept this covered up.

Missionaries are among the most selfish, bigoted, destructive people on the planet, yet they think they're paragons of virtue and servants of God.

I really wish we could make it illegal for these people to fark with indigenous peoples with their caveat of having to push religion on them. If you want to help people, that's awesome. If you do it with a Bible in one hand, you're not there because you care about them... You're there because you're a selfish dick trying to earn Brownie Points with God.
