I will ask the first question - why did it take so long for this guy to be arrested? If, in fact, he is guilty. And after seeing many cases where a student or child has accused an adult of something and then finding out they lied, I will withhold judgment on this case.

Now this lets me know that immigrants applying for residency and citizenship need to be given a crash course on child abuse and exploitation by INS before receiving legal status. That is one of the problems of child exploitation in this country; governments lack of education the populace.

Billions of tax dollars wasted on Planned Parenthood and Abortion Federation who pushes sex education and condoms in public schools but yet no money being spent on education students and staff members about child exploitation. No more asking what is this country coming too? It is already there. No freedom, no rights to persue happiness no honor or integrity anymore. Just a bunch of misguided people who know more about celebrities than candidates for public offices. Sports is more important than raising a family under traditional morals and values. Everybody worried more about making money instead of hitting the streets in protest against tyranny. The people are scared of the government so the government continues to send US further to a civil revolution because it is ran by lawyers. Brittish Accredited Association is what BAR Association means now you really know who is running this country.
