Victims cry for justice

By Staff | Feb 2, 2024

To the editor:

Sexual abuse against children is a grievous offense. Many of these innocent victims experience serious mental, physical and emotional harm that may take years to overcome. Among some of the harms are PTSD, depression, sexual promiscuity, runaway behavior, inability to develop normal relationships, feelings of guilt, feeling dirty, fear of healthy affections, feeling unloved by God and possibly suicide.

As a retired attorney who worked in child welfare, I am very familiar with this travesty. This is a crime that calls out for vengeance.

As we know Jeffrey Epstein abused many young children and made them available to his friends on his island. Recently many names of these friends have been released by the court. Bill Clinton was one of his friends. In an unsealed deposition, an Epstein victim was asked if Epstein ever talked about Bill Clinton. She replied, “He said one time that Clinton likes them young, referring to girls.” Why isn’t the Justice Department aggressively investigating these allegations? We need a Republican administration who will reform the Justice Department. These child victims deserve justice.
