    "A pain in the butt"????? I'm appalled by your statement, MPD! I have worked as a child psychotherapist, and been involved with patients who were victims of sexual abuse. I think perhaps you should not be looking for a "straight answer" from a very young child, in relation to such a traumatic and complex issue!

    It always disillusions me when I read this type of cynical post regarding verifying the veracity of child sexual abuse claims. Developmental stage is a critical factor to take into account here. Young children have very special needs, and different modes of self- expression, to adults. It is vitally important to foster a caring, supportive environment- that will encourage the child to speak more freely. Coping mechanisms used by abused children can result in a lack of conscious awareness of that abuse, for varying periods of time. This coupled with stress, and trauma- can affect the retreval, and recounting of memories/information in children. The experience and context of the questioning, can also influence/ affect the childs story, or memories.

    Children are easily influenced by trusted adults, and the child in question may be afraid to disclose the abuse- for a variety of reasons. Many are still loyal to the abuser, many are afraid of causing anger and shame in other family members- and of causing a break in the family. Abusers make children afraid to tell- with threats of punishment, violence, or threats of loss of love.

    Most allegations of child sexual abuse ARE true. A large portion of them go unreported. Hesitancy and recanting are common, and a child who has experienced trauma may also include falsehoods in their account. However, this does NOT exclude the possibility that the allegation is based in truth.

    Wouldn't you love to work for that agency right now? How embarrassing!

    I remember that they taught us that BS about kids being truthful, in the academy. I was young and eager to believe and I bought that story ...it doesn't take long to find out that kids are a pain in the butt. Try interviewing a 5 year old about whether mom's boyfriend ever abuses them...if you can get a straight answer, I want to know the secret.

    And that's the hell of it. How do you know who is lying and who is not. It used to be that it was virtually impossible to convict a guilty person of any type of sex crime. Anymore, it has gotten so that as soon as an accusation is made, it's printed in the media, talked about on TV and everybody just makes the assumption that the guy is guilty.

    I went through one (of many) classes on child sexual abuse. The instructor (an unmarried female who appeared to be just out of college) told us "when dealing with children, remember they NEVER lie."

    OOHH KAY!

    I have a story on the flip side of this. A friend of ours, a high school baseball coach, was accused of sexual remarks made to a female teenage trainer on the team. She reported him and, to make a long story short, he was given the chance to resign or be fired. He resigned(which made him look guilty but he said he was thinking of his family and didn't want it in the newspapers.....but it was anyway) and was arrested as soon as he walked out of the principals office.
    Three weeks later, he tried to commit suicide by taking over the counter pills. They still aren't sure what he took. It was touch and go for a long time and he was in ICU for a long time. When he physically recovered, he consented to go to the local mental hospital only if my husband would drive him. They consented to this because my husband is a big man and they felt he could control him if he tried to escape. But, my husband insisted that at least one health official come with him.
    On the way there, the health official broke the news to him that his accuser had recanted her story. She had been mad at him because he had removed her as a trainer because of her poor atitude.
    Our friend became so upset, my husband drove him back to the hospital where he stayed sedated and in restraints for several days.
    He will never be the same.

    But you don't understand, they didn't say _which_ crimes he couldn't commit, not specifically at least. YUCK, what a jerk!

    Sammy (the bull) Gravano? Aw now Sandy, he's just a poor, misunderstood man whose mommy didn't love him good enough when he was a little kid. After all, he's only a hit man for the mafia. It's not like he is a criminal or something!

    Another guy I wonder about is Sammy Gravano--he gets a pass on multiple murders and other major crimes, gets "relocated" to Arizona, then proceeds to involve himself (allegedly, haha) in more criminal activity.

    What astounds me is how stupid some people are. He's on release for sexual assualt and asks one of his relatives to show him her tatoo on the small of her back? I wonder with some people if you asked them to stand downrange and see if they can catch a bullet so I could use it over if they would? Sorry if I sound harsh today, but some things really gripe me.

    What astounds me is that the sheriff is currently on bail for sexual assault and he is still performing his duties as a sheriff.
