Guest Post From Curtis Staropoli

So, I write about my girlfriend Day who was abused by her father and committed suicide, and I often make the point when I post the link to this that most child sex offenders are KNOWN to the victims. In the past week we have had 2 educators and a coach/arena owner arrested for child abuse, and I keep noticing these comments from people how they are surprised that this child abuse happens with “respected people and in respected institutions.”
Do not be surprised. This is where almost ALL of it happens, with 50% of it being by FAMILY members. Here are the stats:

Let us see how much we know-and see how much of what we think has been based on the myths we have all heard about sexual assault and sex offenders. Take 5 minutes to complete the True or False Quiz:
Most men who commit sexual offenses do not know their victim.
False. 90% of child victims know their offender, with almost half of the offenders being a family member. Of sexual assaults against people age 12 and up, approximately 80% of the victims know the offender.  ————————————
It’s NOT strangers in vans — it’s people you know and trust.

    It takes courage as an adult to step up say something when it appears ” not quite right “. I threw up when we learned that many people who dealt with Earl Bradley susspected something was amiss, and turned a blind eye. The same thing was said about about Tyrone Gray. We as a society are guilty.

  2. William Christy says:

    waterpirate I don’t know how close you followed the Bradley case. Milford PD had turned over more than enough evidence to the DE AG to nail Bradley. The AG did NOTHING!

    The stigma associated with child abuse, sexual child abuse is horrific. These victims in most cases blame themselves for what happened to them. These kids spend years in counseling because they are so screwed up,. Far to many even with counseling still become alcoholics, abusers, marry partners who are abusive, self mutilators, and often commit suicide as in the case this guest poster wrote about.

  3. William Christy says:

    Curtis Staropoli thank you for the courage to be vocal about this and willing to speak openly about the tragedy you are dealing with.

    I can relate we are raising our 2 minor granddaughters who were victims of heinous abuse. We deal with the repercussions on a near daily basis, it is going to take years of counseling to undo the damage that was done. This is why I too have been very open and outspoken about having guardianship of them. I want people to open their eyes and be aware about child abuse of all kinds, including sexual abuse.

    “Far to many even with counseling still become alcoholics, abusers, marry partners who are abusive, self mutilators, and often commit suicide as in the case this guest poster wrote about.”
    And yet when they find the courage to come forward, sometimes many years later, they are labeled liars. And these very symptoms you listed are used as reasons not to believe them.

  5. William Christy says:

    You won’t get any disagreement from me.

    So what do you suggest?

    I don’t think there’s any one size fits all solution, which is why child abuse of any type is such a heinous crime, IMHO.

    There unfortunately have been a number of high profile cases over the years where child abuse rape was alleged, which was later determined the victim lied. Sadly as a result these cases have become the reference point for those who have skepticism when it comes to other cases.

    WC you screwed up your kids, your wife’s kids and now you dysfunctional B—–d your screwing up your grandkids. Stop professing your such a victim when its your dysfunctional behavior that screwed every off spring that has been around you. You fled from up here in Mass with your dysfunctional family going south just to feed off the tax payers in another state to keep your lazy, live off your wife, not working ass.

  7. New England Patriot says:

    WC how convenient you like to play yourself as this victim of circumstances and your poor grandchildren were abused by your own child. Wasn’t it you that raised your child? Wasn’t it you that raised your children to be the dysfunctional adults they grew into bc you yourself are just that dysfunctional with your multiple personalities? You raised your dysfunctional kids, step kids and now your raising your dysfunctional grandkids who are exposed to YOU the dysfunctional pig that started that whole dysfunctional family in the first place. Isn’t it convenient that you fled from up here in Mass. to go south where you could use the tax payers to help you feed your grandchildren on Del a where’s dime. Well at least up here in Mass. we aren’t keeping your no job, lazy not working ass, working wife keeping you smuck. You want to make an impression, get a real job and keep your family like a man instead of feeding off all the tax payers in Del a where instead lying around like the fat man you are typing on the computer all day harassing people like you did up here in Mass.

  8. William Christy says:

    Have at it……I’m going to sit back and see just how long Delaware Right will tolerate this.

    By the way you forgot to mention the herd of cows that mysteriously stopped producing milk when I walked past the field.

  9. New England Patriot says:

    Why wouldn’t Delaware right tolerate exposing a fraud that comes on their forum and harassing others using sock puppet names WC, BC, AB, anon anon, etc. While where at it, how about coming out beneath those several layers of multiple personalities of rock formation and tell how your such a JAG officer up here in Mass. Oh, I guess you can’t cause you aren’t but that didn’t stop you from harassing me, threatening me while sluing your wanta be lawyer venum. Ok, whats it down there WC pretending you are a police officer or maybe a bail bondsman or a high ranking military man. Its’ Halloween dress up for you everyday! Man oh mouse of many layers.

    So, now lets talk about your fraudulent military career. You might have enlisted in the military but for a limited time. I hear your taunten yourself to be some retired Col. or lite Col. or something to that effect. Blow me down wind there you fake a-s fraud. I hope them hillbillies down there have sense enough to ask you for some real documents and not the ones you make up on your copy machine. Word travels especially from your sick universe. You thought you could flee down south, make up a whole new persona again, thinking these dumb a-s hillbillies will believe that fat a-s lier that you are. I am laughing my a-s off when I saw that you wrote you know how to do this in politics and that in politics, WC fraudman you don’t know s–t, if you did anything your a grunt, not anyone that anyone would remember. Work on what, you won’t work!

    How about that military career lier, prove it? Show some real documents not some fake blurry photos you post on your facebook page. Big mouse man shows a gun, what did you buy it with a food vouchers!

    Mr. Knotts

    Another textbook example of attack comments by New England Patriot. These types of attacks are completely unacceptable and unwarranted.
    If you don’t want Mr. Christy’s patronage, then call him and tell him so, but please clean this site up.
    Nobody is perfect, including yourself. You site is becoming a sewer.

  11. William Christy says:

    Thank you for your comments. Fact be known it is not up to Mr. Knotts whether I post here or not. I was invited to by the owners of the site, to continue posting. I was also asked if I would consider writing a guest piece occasionally a while back by Mr. Cragg.

    I will continue to maintain the high road while these vicious attacks continue. My position will only prove that the message sent by the moderator’s inaction proves the belief he condones the attacks.

  12. New England Patriot says:

    Oh, here we go again WC writing to himself with his sock puppet identity Observer to justify himself and add some credence to what he says. LMAO you pig! You think these southern hillbillies can’t see through your BS! Keep writing to yourself you sorry excuse for a man. Crawl back under that preferable rock formation you slime bag. Oh, how about those real military documents instead of sock puppet statements to justify your diatribe as you so frequently like to use on others.

Got something to say? Go for it!
