3 – 6 YEARS?

    Kirchner, who was arrested by Trooper Linda Gerow in November, assaulted the girls at various times and locations throughout the county between June 2005 and November 2008, beginning when they were 8 and 12 years old.

From today’s article, “Man, 65, jailed 3-6 years for sex assaults,” (click here).

    Does our society treat the sexual abuse of children as a heinous crime?

    Once again, the obvious but tragic truth. Studies show that children tell up to seven people about their abuse, but no one believes them because no one wants to believe such a terrible thing could happen. Being labeled as a child molester is considered more traumatic than being told you have cancer. It’s understandable that people make “flip” comments such as William H did, but punishment (legal or otherwise)after the fact does not stop what has already happened. Nor does it really help the victims of the abuse. For God’s stake, LET’S STOP THE CYCLE OF CHILD ABUSE IN THIS GENERATION! I have yet to hear of even one person running for office who makes this one of their priorities. At the very least we can fund Child Welfare Agencies so that they can provide services to help those already victimized!
