This is a sad and horrifying story. It shows a long history of perpetration by a serial pedophile, and nothing but protection for him in the legal system, and doing nothing to address the victims. His wife is no better.

He has walked a path littered with victims, including the original three boys, two of whom deal with substance abuse issues to this day.

Is it really too much to ask our system to protect victims and innocent children? I'm so tired of hearing judges and prosecutors whining about consequences being too severe for these monsters. This is the result. Just horrible.

I so so so so so SOOOOO fucking loathe the word "fondled." It is at once minimizing, misinforming, and transposing of a good experience when you are really describing a bad one.

Do these goddamned reporters not know the word "groped"????

I learned lots of crude alternative words for fondled in the boy scouts and had them all demonstrated to me. I seek a word that is not so polarized.

As a slow moving hurricane, the sicko perpetrator moves through the lives of the children and their families destroying everything they have built, everything they will try to build. Just so much destruction...

And I can't help but wonder if these kids will be as we are, as I am, and in 50 years they will still be sorting out the deepest hurt which has been done to them.

I am not a proponent of violence, but prison is much too good for him. Much too good.

One thing that I noticed in the story line was that he was repeatedly reported for abusing boys. When it was discovered that he was assaulting girls it was taken more seriously. I would want to seriously look at the licensing of the pediatrician that told the initial family that they should ignore it and allow it to go away with time.
