Re: “Is Melissa Huckaby Protecting Someone?

Do some research. There are any number of real life stories of au pairs, nannies, babysitters, and other females who have abused or killed other peoples' children. What's the motive? Sometimes they were abused themselves. Sometimes they BELIEVED they were abused and bullied and can't reciprocate to the person who did it ('must never bully the bully!')....

Torey Hayden is an excellent author and has written many books on the subject of abused kids....and what happened to them later in life. Some broke the pattern. Some did other crimes, due to unresolved emotional upheaval in their pasts.

She wrote once of a young 6 y.o. girl who was abused and lived in appalling conditions at home....and took it out on a younger child....tying the child to a tree and setting him on fire.

The stories are out there. It kills me how people who don't know about such things think that just because THEY LIVE IN LALA LAND where everything is peachy, nothing like this happens. They're woefully ignorant and possibly glad of it. But then they come out of the woodwork with their disbelief and think just like some of the rest of you do. Good for you that you live in a protected sheltered bubble.

The rest of us don't and are horrified on a regular basis but determined to do something about it.
