If you work in mental health then obviously more people are going to have issues.

I work in child protection, and can tell you we don't get many horrific sexual abuse cases, they are rare. We get more child on child sexual abuse than adult to child.

But when they do happen, they tend to be high profile, so you'll know about it.

There is a fair bit of sexual exploitation of older kids/teens but very few peado rings and straight sexual abuse cases.

What I'm trying to say is... Live life, don't live in fear.

Thats just sick.

On the men babysitting thing. My husband is the one who offers to watch my friends/families kids more then I do because he is a kid/baby person. I am with mine but others meh. My friends husband BEGS me to bring morgan over to their house when hes off so they can hang out. His son is a TOTAL mamas boy and Morgan loves to play him and loves cars LOL. My cousin also LOVES to baby sit he was actually going to go to school to be a kindergarten teacher.

Heck all the people I trust to watch my kids are either male or its spend most of the time there with the male in the house.

That is just horrific! I think they ought to tie these bustards to a tree in the woods and let the wild animals have at 'em. It's beyond a normal human's ability to understand how someone can be like that. They're monsters, not human. I hope they are eliminated from society. Why should tax payers support them in prison? ...other than the idea that they'll be eliminated by other inmates hopefully within short order.

My husband is the second oldest of 8 kids, so was around lots of babies and toddlers. He has helped with friends kids before and when we have a child I would have no issues leaving him with our infant.

Take some satisfaction in Dizzy being right about fates worse than death -- and death will probably come at some point in the prison term. By that time they'll most likely welcome it.

And it won't be difficult for the other prisoners to get to them either.

I really cna't imagine giving any of them less than a life sentence. You can't just fix someone like that.

The entire story gave me shivers down my spine.

I agree, I really can't see someone like that being 'cured' or 'fixed' or even 'under control' of their illness. So why give a life sentence? Why pay to keep that kind of person alive and caged forever?

If there's no doubt of guilt, convict and be done with it. Let the families have closure, save the tax payers money, and just be DONE.

This.

I'm on a special list for babysitters for US government employees stationed in Ottawa area. Probably 65% of that list are males -- and it's not as easy as them wanting to be on a list They go through the same background tests I did, which were a PITA. So I doubt it's something that they don't actually want to do.
