@evildead6789: Thats just one doom mongering hypothesis, even if that is the reality its nothing a simple change of address and school move couldnt fix.
I am a firm believer in people shaping their own destiny. If your not happy...make a change. Its very easy for us to sit on our computers and predict this kids future but the fact is his future would have been a whole lot worse had this abuse continued. Bullying is preventable in the same way that this abuse was prevented stuff like that is all changeable.
\worst case scenario and is a change of school and at worst address....certainly not a patch on continued molestation.
the internet is everywhere.
Bringing this into the media, doesn't change anything about the fact that the abuse happened and that the perpetrator got caught. The perpetrator got jailed and the media won't change anything about this. The abuse wouldn't have continued as well if this wasn't brought into the media.
Everyone knows that the perpetrator done this, but everyone knows also that the victim was victimized. Since the victim is a child, I think (and where i live this is also the case) these cases shouldn't be made public, for the childs sake.
This also makes it a lot harder for the perpetrator to rehabilitate, when made my public, I think it's even better to never let him free anymore, or you might as well kill them because these people become ticking time bombs.
