I agree its sad...the line between protecting a child and enabling them can sometimes become blurred for many parents who want to do what is best for their children. Enabling a child would include repeatedly bailing them out with no consequences for their behavior. Personally, if I had a child who broke the law....the in a big way the law wouldn't be their biggest fear...drugs, thieft, abuse, voilence of any kind....kids dont just one day wake up and decide to get on the wrong side of the law....it takes many years to create a criminal mind..To all the parents out there with young children. Make them your first priority now, spend quality time with them, rather than dumping them off with family and friends so you can go socialize with your friends or romantic partner of the moment.....It always amazes me when parents act shocked their kids are all of a sudden in trouble....it doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure out how to raise good kids.....

It takes effort to raise a good kid......current statistics show 1 in 10 children will be abused by the time they are 18....which means nearly 1 in 10 adults are abusing children.....the people we THINK we can trust are often the sick preverted perps folks!
Hmmmm

His situation went on too long, required too many bailouts/coverups, and cost his mother too many jobs for his parents to believe he was innocent of any wrongdoing.

I wonder how much of it is protecting the child, and how much of it is protecting the parents from public embarassment, or not drawing attention to themselves because of other things they are involved in and don't want to be found out.

I would think a child who has grown up in a secret environment of white collar crime or abuse of the public trust has a distorted view of entitlement and no worry about accountibility. They feel they can do whatever they want and get away with it.

HMMMmmmmmm, are you a hummer ? I knew people when I was a child that had hummer groups that hummed music all the time , even when alone. But at thsi tie no onehas ben accused of enabling BP or even helping him during any period of time- do you know someone that has enabed or even helped BP in his aledged molestation of the many victims that have come forward. If you do you should turn them in for such a hidious crime. As for as I understand the case no one at thsi time has been charged with enabling or even hlping Brad in his aledged criminl activity.

And HMMmmmm, as for BP or anyone else being involved in such an activity they should have justice come down on them all with long sentences for such crimes if found guilty.

A contemplator. Don't know your friends.
The information was turned in long ago, but no charges have been brought that I know of so far.
Also, the accusation has occurred a number of times in the various BP posts. Only they would know the answer in those cases.

Yes those are the right dates. Me and my husband have had numerous conversations on how we would handle certain situations. And weve determined the first time we would help them out like if they got caught drinking or such but the second time god forbid hes sticking it out. We teach our kids there are good and bad consequences and just cause your sorry doesnt mean you dont face the consequences. To many kids these days get away with being disrespectful
to there elders or those in authority. My 5 yr. Old olis grounded right now in fact until monday
because he lied to his teacher.(Long story)So we believe in consequences. I just want him to know no matter how bad things are im still here for
him. I think that is the problem with brad his mom never made him accountable even growing up.

Newspaper said the prosecution had asked for a closed courtroom during witness testimony. Reporters and victims families only during the time where the minors are on the stand. I figure that will be most of the time. Anyone know different? I had considered sitting in on some of it until I read that. Not worth going down if I have to stand in the halls.

Just like everyone else in McCurtain County the moms did not know their kids were in the midst of a alleged child molester. Did you know Where your kids are every minute of the day, even while you sleep? Or do you have kids. But it did take a brave mom and son to come forward and face their alleged abuser. Do you even know who your neighbors are and where the molesters live in McCurtain County WHERE? OR have you any kids yourself. Because if you do have children I think you probably take good care of them.But there are many evil people in the world that takes pleasure in perverted ways with children--but they may not feel conforable in telling the crimes committed against them --even to a mother that loves them.

The child that turned to his family in a time of need after being abused must have know that his family had enough love for him to trust his parents to come forwqrd and inform on his aledged abuser. Love and trust goes a long way in a family

Mom be careful of what you say on here or they may have you locked up before B.P. It will probably be another year or so before his time comes. Some times Lady justice just takes time to have her say.

b.

p. even comes to trail.

Has anybody seen this "ORDER FROM SUPREME COURT STAYING PROCEEDINGS PENDING DECISION" on Brad's court records on ODCR.com ? I have searched for the meaning of this and to my understanding it means that the Supreme Court has put a hold on the case. Anybody heard anything about the case?

Normal legalese to stall trail and se if it can o court for further study of some legal gripe of BPs lawyer if it has happened. So it will be held up till a decision from the higher court is made. Sop your local papers are not keeping you fine folks up to date on the trial or its hearings.

Any updates on the untouchable child molester situation. Instead of sending him to jail they will probably build a golden monument in the town square in his honor.
