Food for thought...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

It's one thing to know that it's wrong to abuse a child; it's another to stop oneself from abusing. While I can understand your question and the comparison you are making with this murderous monster and the parents who abuse their children, the fact remains, most abusers know what they are doing is wrong. Still...you offer food for thought.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on child abuse with my visitors and me.

P.S. You'll note I edited out the profanity in your post, since I did not feel it was necessary in the telling of your story. On that issue, we disagree.

Hallo Mexico, keep looking for the Good in people
by: Mrs. R.

Hi,Thats a really good point you make. If we look hard enough most times there is always good in a person, for various reasons it gets knocked right down to the bottom and can get covered over with a very hard crust. I believe you were very fortunate to see some of the goodness in this chap, I feel certain he does not show that side often if at all.
If only Abusers could see ahead at the crippling damage they do to their children. The pain and suffering that lasts a whole lifetime even after the Abuser has passed away.
My question is would they still do what they did?

acting ignorant is no excuse to abuse.
by: Maurice

pig headed down right ignorance does not excuse abusing a 1 and have year old baby/child. if one spends time behind bars one has 24 hours a day lying in one's cell, doing what? I believe there is no human being ever born so pig ignorant and without feelings. sadly nature begets nature from time to time and the abused abuse. Until they realize it is not the way to live their lives by effecting the lives of others. That is where a true frind is the carat of gold in ones life.unfortueneately Alot of damage has been done in the mean time by such ignorant individuals. So my friend I cannot accept that this brute of an individual did not know what he was doing to this child. Handicapped, yes is is the kind way to put it but it still does not justify him being him the way he was. Deep down there's goodness in everyone born and maybe if us males realized the pain our mothers go through in birthing us we would never want to cause pain to another. I hope I don't offend any woman/mother by sharing this I cannot ever understand a mother/female abusing a child or their children. Mothers give their boys the sensitive mothering feminine side of them. Sadly we men are not man enough to acknowledge that. Big boys cry and it is good for us from time to time. Even a murderer knows abuse is wrong.
