There is absolutely NO excuse for his actions nor should there be any compassion for this man. The children and the families are the victims of these alleged crimes, they are the one's who need prayers and compassion during this difficult time, not him.
This is a man that hid behind his community involvment while all along stealing the innocence of helpless children, and it sickens me to think about how many years he may have been doing this.
I realize that right now these are only allegations and he has not yet been convicted of these crimes, but I do believe that if they found at least one video with him in it, as they have already reported, then I'm gonna have to lean towards the guilty verdict. And yes I know... it's supposed to be innocent until proven guilty, but if there is any possibility of someone, anyone, hurting or abusing children, then I choose to stand by the children.
In conlusion, I for one would want to be informed of everything the news reports, with the exception of reporting any names of the children and families. They have been through enough, and my heart goes out to them. They do not deserve anymore embarrasment or shame that I'm sure has already been caused. My thoughts are with the families.
