along comes a story like the one , with some pretty terrible allegations. I just read it on the 1010 WINS radio station website at this link: http://1010wins.com/pages/70993.php?contentType=4&contentId=190780. It is a story about an alleged child molestor, who allegedly has preyed upon children between the ages of 23 months and 8 years old over the course of the years 1998 through 2005. As per the report, the alleged suspect was a contractor who molested children in the homes in which he was working. I don't know how long they leave these stories up on the net, but if you want to read it I suggest clicking the link as soon as possible.
Amazingly this guy, according to the article: allegedly molested the children often while the parents were in other areas of the homes. He allegedly sometimes showed them pornography while he molested them, he allegedly restrained some with rope and or handcuffs, and he allegedly videotaped himself and the children in some instances as he molested them and or as childen were in various states of undress.
According to the article, a neighbor interviewed about him stated: "Never in a million years would I think he would do what he did,'' said Mandeville, who said he's known Bilski for 15 years. "He was a good friend. It's sad. It's terrible what he did to the families and it's terrible what he did to himself.''
Well I have to boom about this one. In my opinion, if this actually winds up being proven to have happened and this guy is found guilty, then it will not be only sad that this happened it will be, as I see it, absolutely intolerable! I am of the belief that anyone convicted of such crimes against children should, at the minimum, receive 25 years incarceration per instance of any child being molested. So if you were to molest a single child 5 times and be convicted of that, you would receive 125 years in jail - no chance of parole. If you molested 2 children at once, you would receive 50 years if convicted; and so forth. If you were found guilty as a repeat offender, I am of the opinion that the death penalty would be too good for you. This guy, if convicted, would be in jail for at least many lifetimes if he lasted that long.
Of course I am not in charge, and I have no power on my own to try to get the necessary legislation passed that would implement strict sentencing guidelines for those convicted of such offenses, those whom I believe to be heinous monsters. Then again, I can vote, and I do vote regularly in all major elections and in some minor elections. I suggest you all do the same and that you all vote for law and order candidates who want to put a stop to things like this from happening. I also can write, as is evidenced here; but I also write to my elected officials on a fairly regular basis about issues that are of concern to me. I will be writing to my congresswoman, my senators, and quite possibly to the governor of NJ about this one. If as many of us as possible did likewise, then at least people who were convicted of such offenses would stand a very slim chance of ever being able to do it again. Tolerance may be a good thing in some cases, but I am of the ilk that tolerance of this sort of thing is insanity.
A final note, lest you think I have condemmed this man already. All of the allegations above, were just that - allegations. They were, in essence, reported in the article. This man has not been found guilty of anything, though it appears allegations have been made and charges have been filed (quite a large number of them). Yet based on allegations and charges alone, I will not convict and condem anyone. This man, like anyone else in a criminal prosecution within the USA will have his day in court, probably many days in court, and so it should be. I kind of have some hope that he would be found not guilty because I would like to believe that things like those alleged cannot and do not happen. Yet,if he is guilty of these alleged offenses, I would have little if any mercy for him as those children would probably suffer through the rest of their lives.
All the best,
