Two men charged with Incest-Rape - Child Abuse and the Net
by Lewis Loflin
Middle aged males molesting children seems to be a growing problem in East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia. While we read about the arrests, we seldom get the reasons why this problem is growing. Let's look at two typical cases in East Tennessee and consider why this problem is growing.
Watauga Man charged with Incest and Rape following investigation
September 14, 2012 According to Sheriff Ed Graybeal, Investigators arrested Ronald Charles King, age 35; 1732 Persinger Road after an investigation into a Domestic Violence situation led to information that King had been involved in inappropriate contact with a minor. A more thorough investigation revealed the inappropriate contact had occurred more than once with a minor living in the home.
Alcoa man faces statutory rape, sexual exploitation charges
ALCOA, Tenn. (WVLT) -- A 47 year-old Alcoa man faces multiple charges of sexual misconduct with a minor. Steven Leroy Myers was charged with statutory rape by an authority figure and soliciting sexual exploitation of a minor, the Alcoa Police Dept. announced on Thursday. He is being held on bonds totaling $75,000 and is set to appear in court on March 18. (2013)
Last Friday, Alcoa police officers were called to the Grayson Apartments around 6:30 p.m. on reports of an adult having sexual relations with a minor, according to police. Following a preliminary investigation, Myers was taken into investigative custody.
Following an investigation that weekend, he was initially charged with two counts contributing or encouraging the delinquency of a child and one count of contributing to or encouraging unruly behavior of a child. Digging deeper, investigators turned up allegations of sexual abuse, leading to the new charges. Police added that the Dept. of Children Services has taken the victim and "any other endangered minors" into protective custody.
While the internet wasn't mentioned in the above cases, even non-kiddie porn viewers would be encouraged to cross the line. Many of the women in porn attempt to depict themselves as little girls or are recruited based on looking under age. We should note the following from "Internet Pornography and Sexual Abuse of Children";
U.S. agencies report a 993 percent increase in violent crime and 5,171 percent more child sex abuse from 1976 to 1999. In 1999, 67 percent of sex victims were children, 64 percent of forcible sodomy victims were boys under age 12, and 19,000 in-school rapes and sex abuses were reported. This essay alleges that this dramatic increase is at least partially explained by the lax, permissive attitudes toward internet library pornography...
More shocking is so-called civil liberties groups such as the ACLU turn schools and public libraries into porn gateways in the name of gay rights and sexual expression/education. To quote,
Meanwhile in this same time frame, weakened laws allowed for American Library Association administrators to quietly turn our public libraries into dirty book stores, protecting internet access to debasing and dehumanizing, adult and child pornographic stimuli. ... UCLA neuropsychologist Dr. Margaret Kemeny's research implicates pornography as precipitating a cascade of changes in the body that have an impact on health. This supports former Surgeon General Everett Koop's diagnosis of pornography as a crushing public health problem. Violence and pornography, he said, are felonies against the human spirit. Those who commit them have an appetite for outrage and devour what we cling to as civilized life.
