I am not sure what to think of this article.

Only certain initially that the first few paragraphs were very triggering to me and reminiscent of my own experience when a family member (not me) was abused by a neighborhood man and the police recommended not pressing charges. THIS WAS IN 1970.In thirty-plus years not a thing had changed regarding community practices.

Thanks for the link GT. We can skip JoePa. The rest of it sounds all too familiar as far as the way a perp positions himself. My CSA, too, was the same time as yours.

My perp was heavily involved with kids: BSA, church camp, HS teacher and guidance counselor, professional societies AND had wife/kids. An article written after his death goes into neauseating detail about the years of personal work and improvements he made to the church camp (including cutting a new trail to the boys cabins - go figure). To read it you'd think the man was a fucking saint. And, moving from teacher to guidance counselor, he put himself in a position to "help" troubled young teenage boys, like me. Bastard.

I'll add that 40 years on - though I can't speak to "community practices" - the institutions still have their heads in the sand.

And here in Smallville, I face the town leaders actively protecting a career rapist and pornographer.

I hate this NY article. I hate my town's elected fk-head-leaders and I hate perps into the fire.

Malcolm Gladwell is a prima donna and a frickin' idiot. This just clenches it.
