Mississippi Texan,Hell yes I would.
How terrible for her and for you.Mississippi Texan,
When I was a "shirttail kid" in NETX, ANYTHING that ANY adult said was AUTOMATICALLY PRESUMED to be 100% TRUE & every parent that I knew (including MINE) "backed up" just about every other adult.
(This was ESPECIALLY TRUE of clergy & school officials.)
When I was 12YO, I had my first girlfriend, "Ginger", who was inseparable from me from grade 3-7.
One afternoon, walking home from school, she told me that a 5th grade male teacher had "touched her" between the legs & had pulled her underpants down.
(I told Mother as soon as I got home. - She whipped me with a heavy cowboy belt until I was seeping blood out of my underwear.
When My dad got home from work, she told him what I had said & I got whipped a second time, until I literally couldn't sit down.
BOTH parents told me that they KNEW Mr. R & that he was a "good Christian" & a "church-going man" AND that I was to never say anything like that again about a teacher.
About 5 years later, that same "good Christian" & "church-going man" was CAUGHT WITH a 9YO girl, with her dress up & his pants down to his ankles.
As a result, the teacher was fired by the ISD & "run out of town" but was NOT prosecuted.
FYI, that was the way that things were often "handled" in the 1950s & early 1960s.
(When I was a Junior in college, Mother FINALLY admitted that she had made an error in NOT reporting what I had told her to the police.)
BTW, "Ginger's folks" did NOT believe her either & about a year later, when we were in 7th grade, sent her away to live with her aunt in OK..
(One wonders how many other children that Mr. R got away with molesting.)
DoubleDuty,He fired into the parking lot and then he shot a female customer and killed her as she was leaving so he definetly fired first. Unfortunately that woman's situational awareness failed.
Same old story - their kid killed two people BUT they started it. Now, they will demand justice for their son, the "victim".Would you expect a mom to claim her son did something wrong...
AusSchwaben,Same old story - their kid killed two people BUT they started it. Now, they will demand justice for their son, the "victim".
SATX78247, there were/are folks and groups that are rarely punished in Texas. Ministers, winning coaches, and athletes, are in that group.
I still see it out here.
