    Studies I've read of polygraphed sex offenders indicate the number that actually suffered sexual abuse as children is significantly lower than once believed. I can't recall the actual stats right now. I'll look for the study later. What was interesting... The ones that did suffer sexual abuse tended to lie about it and claim it didn't happen... And the ones that weren't abused as children lied and claimed they were as a means of manipulation.

    It's a "F'd" up bunch for sure!!!

    It's my understanding, he gave permission for LE to search his phone during an interview.

    I dont know about the phone.
    I do think there were more pics than the hose though. I think they were of him in a womans thong and possibly pics of someone being tied up to the kitchen chair. But was it one particular kitchen chair? If so there must have been something in the pic that stood out.
    Its possible also, during the search for Alanna's murderer another victim of TH came forward and described an abusive incident at TH home, naming the chair and womans thong underwear.
    I could go on and on with what ifs......

    I know of one person who has confessed this type of attraction to children. He is seeking counseling and it is very difficult to find.

    Is there help for this when someone really is afraid of their own thoughts?

    You got that right!!!
    I am wondering what is the percentage of child molesters that were sexually abused as children.

    I think that a person has to go into their fears to see what causes them. They have to be willing to take a look at themselves.

    I think people do it with issues such as emotional eating , for instance. That can be destructive to a person.

    Therapy is hard because you have to find the person as a good fit.

    I have a friend who is finally going through PTSD therapy from Vietnam. His first therapist moved and the new one is not working out,

    The truth of the answer is NO, however if he was to upload the pics, skydrive, dropbox, iCloud etc yes they could go after those, but if one just has their pics on their phone no. I take waay tooo many pics to allow for automatically uploading them so they do not go to the cloud unless I want them there.

    Ok. I'm going to try this for the first time. I usually am using my phone to post and I havent figured out how to cut and paste articles yet.
    Www.policechiefmagazine.org/magazine/index

    Of the 45 convicted child molesters interviewed 78% stated they were victims of childhood sexual abuse.
    This was a 30 month study 2003 to 2005.

    Item #20 - No Boundaries Brand Purple Underwear [unreadable marking on SW; purple underwear not listed as either child/adult sized or male/female clothing] Smart Sexy Brand Size XXL Pink with Black Lace Thong Underwear [item that is the current subject of this discussion]

    Item #58 - Women's Clothing/underwear/Swimsuits/Jewelry [no colors, sizes, or number of items noted on SW]

    Thanks!

    I was so enthralled with the thong that I did not consider the other items listed.

    Very interesting. It is so strange they identify the purple undies and the thong but not the other items.

    No Boundaries Brand...Is Wal-Mart's Brand. Does it seem like Wal-Mart always has to be connected? It does to me.

    Why so much purple? Purple was Alanna's favorite color. It's just a coincidence, right?
