Who Can We Trust With Our Children?

Dead investigator had extensive child-porn collection

Hundreds of images discovered in deceased man's Aliso Viejo home. Authorities searching for more victims.

Stenger, a 41-year-old unmarried Aliso Viejo man, had extensive access to young children, teaching a "Tools for Tolerance" program for at-risk middle school students through a Neighborhood Enforcement Team and working with Little League, according to county officials. Investigators with the Orange County District Attorney's Office are looking for other potential victims who may have come in contact with Stenger.

A man convicted of sexually abusing his 4 week old son. The baby also had broken bones in all its limbs.

This man should never be allowed outside of prison walls again. I understand that most sexual abusers have been abused themselves - but what on earth creates this kind of monster?

And the mother - she's in prison for allowing it to happen.

Thankfully the baby has been adopted and hopefully this has not affected his life forever (I would think not since he's so young...but who knows what kind of fear and pain he experienced).

Excellent Article on Rape

I haven't been writing here much but a friend pointed out a really good article worth reading:

The article ends with the important reminder that rape is NOT about sex, its about violence and control.

No Means No

I haven't written here in a while but have been keeping up with other blogs on the topic and am grateful to the writers out there that are using their voices to make people more aware of all forms of sexual abuse and violence.
