One of my girlfriend J called me this afternoon with a big news. Her older brother is going to fly to California to testify in court. And this is why.
J's older brother D used to live in California. There he met his neighbor lady who has two daughters, age 6 and 9. D also has two sons who are close to the girls' age, so the kids spend time together almost everyday. Although it was very platonic, D and the woman grew really close as well.
One night, D's kids and the girl's kids asked them if they could go over to their neighbor B's house for sleepover party that B is throwing for the kids. This guy B is married and has 3 kids and I guess everybody is friend with everybody in the neighborhood. D and the girl said it's okay and the kids went to B's house for the night.
A few days later, the woman and her two daughters came over to D's house crying. D had no idea what was going on, but then they told him that the neighbor B had sexually molested both girls when they're sleeping at his house. They didn't know what to do and asked D for help. He, of course called Police immediately and filed a police report as well as 2 page letters (that he wrote for himself) detailing exactly what happened to the girls.
Because the girls didn't have a father, D had become a father figure to them. D was livid. I mean mad or pissed would not do any justice with the anger he had towards this guy. D watched the girls grow up and treated like his own kids. It was really tough for him. D took a new job and moved to FL this past summer. I think it was very hard decision because he was really concered about the woman and her daughters. But he needed to do what he had to do.
Anyway, the guy B is locked up right now awaiting trial and now prosecutors want D to testify against B. Okay, D is so ready to put the guy in jail for the rest of his life. Can you imagin people; what kind of a monster this guy is???? The girls are 6 and 8. Taking advantage of innocent girls and commit such heinous act? What sickens me the most is that he has a wife and children. I feel soooo bad for the family. How embarassing and hurtful. A father has to protect child, not harm them.
This guy totally ruined the girls' life. They are scarred for the rest of their lives. Their scars may be healed someday, but the scar tissue will always be there.
I have two girls, defensless tiny girls. If anyone ever gets close to my girls and does anything inappropriate or in worst case sexually molest them? I don't even know what I am going to do.
So I talked to JT about it this afternoon which he of course knows the whole story about J's bro D.
Me: So, J called me today..
JT: Oh yeah... What did she say?
Me: D is flying out tomorrow to California.
JT: Oh? Is he going to testify?
Me: Yes, I think the prosecutor is asking for serious sentense.
JT: Serious sentense? The perv needs to go for good. Really, it pisses me off.
Me: I know right? I mean what would you do if anything like that happened to Ju Ju and Soapy?
JT: Not under my watch.
Me: But JT, you never know. You never know.. It really scares me. This guy seemed normal, a family man.
JT: Yep, that's why I won't let my kids go over to strangers' house.
Me: But really, honestly what would you do? I don't even know what I would do. I think I'm going to cry first and then, and then...
JT: Don't be stupid. Okay, I can tell you this. If anything or anyone hurt one of them or both of them, I would be the only one going to jail.
Me: .......(I had to think for a sec) Oh! I get it. That's my man, JT!!! I would totally be right next to you.
JT: No, the girls would need you to raise them.
So I gave him a BIG BIG sqeeze. And he hugged me back.
I honestly believe if anyone touches our daughters, JT would seriously hurt the guy. I have no doubt that he could possibly kill the guy. Maybe not only JT, but his brothers would join.. I am not kidding everyone.
Maybe true, those sex offenders need treatment, not just jail time. But they need to be locked away and get treatment. I wouldn't be able to forgive myself if Ju Ju or Soapy was to be the victim of those sick people.
I am a very forgiving and loving person. But when it comes to children, my heart rests in different place. I know that JT and I will do anything to protect my girls. So, hug your children, my friends and don't ever let go!!!!
