This must have been a huge downer! I know for me, having something like that happening to a child I know would, I think be as bad as having it happen to my own kid--though having had none of my own, I can't speak from experience.

I don't know if we will ever have a world where children are safe. I had a similar public restroom experience as a child. To this day I loathe using public restrooms.

I think it was a victory of sorts myself. I wouldn't want to downplay the distress this could cause the kid, nor the fact that the perp should have never done this to start, but the kid completely handled this situation very well. Kudos to him. He should be commended for how he handled the situation and know that this was in no way his fault.

Will be thinking about the trial, but now it's 2pm my time, you'll have to let us know what happened later on, I won't see it until the evening/tomorrow.

Ah, "The System"... it's not perfect (by any means) but it's all we have.
(I'm sure you don't need me to say this but it makes me feel better to) Please reassure 'little Buddy' that he's done nothing wrong...in fact he's a hero...protecting all of the kids this perp would have hurt if he didn't have the courage to say something!

Yay little Buddy!!!

I hope the system can be trusted. Buddy did exactly the right thing. It helps my heart to hear this was taken seriously by, first of all his parents but also the theatre management, the police and prosecutor. Good luck. Now if only the judge gets it. We hope to hear this handled firmly.

Thanks for keeping us informed Ron. It's so heartening to hear a story where the child TELLs someone and it's dealt with well. My thoughts are with you.

Here's praying that Buddy is completely victorious in court, and is comforted and healed by the process!
