This just makes me furious and I need to understand. Do these kind of people become rape crisis counselors for the reason they are going to do just that?
Oh and a Minister. Is it a youth Minister by chance?
EIGHT YEARS? How is this poor young lady going to become a survivor?

Filly--I think the answer is yes, they do. I don't think it just "organically" happens. Maybe rarely, but not often. I think the whole shebang is planned. Look at Bradley et al. These guys will push themselves to the limit to get to the victims.
We're looking at this thing upside down. We are using ourselves as a gauge. We cannot understand, for the life of us, how someone could throw away a fabulous career and years of preparation and study. It's actually all a plot to get the greatest number of victims, IMO. I think they are all hellbent on destruction....just like the guy in the Walmart restroom. They know, in their heart, that they will be caught, so they move as fast as they can. JMO

The Rosette had a video camera that the victim says she saw during the times he assaulted her, according to the affidavit for search warrant filed in Newport News Circuit Court.
"She reports that he told her he wasn't recording, however she could see the red recording light…" the complaint states.
For someone who is or has been a rape crisis counselor, he should without a doubt know of the pain & fear experienced by a survivor....sick, sick, evil, evil.

Here's the single time I think a Video Girl Barbie would come in handy. Wouldn't that be something?
My daughter has mentioned that she'd like to outfit her 8 year old with some sort of video pen to record every interaction throughout the day. It makes me sad that it's come to this. But it almost seems that we've got to be one step ahead of the perps. I feel so sad that little kids are being forced to step out of the magical thinking stage far too early and worry about bad guys hurting them. Not fair.
