Someone posted this below experience on my facebook group and just thought I'd put it up....they were someone's return visit.
All these abuse stories never fail to bug and frustrate the $hit out of me. Why is it so bloody hard to inform the police?!
And I know , I know the reason why they cover up...its just so bloody frustrating and of course sad.
How can they think Jehovah looks down and is happy with them sheilding disgusting men who take children's innocence?
And of course the ultimate...when this stuff gets out....don't they realize it is a "bad witness"?!?!?!
Anyways, that's it...I just had to vent and share with my people. ;)
Member experience: Ten years ago when me and my family first moved to the area where we live now some Jehovah's Witnesses started calling.
They were nice enough people I thought, and even though I was never going to be converted into their society I did strike up a freindship with a couple of the mums who had children around the same age as mine.
Soon a man called Bob Bill started visiting and inviting me & my family round to his quite often , which I thought to be quite nice of him although we were rather busy with other things and couldn't often go.
Bob however called at my home intermittantly, asking if my two little girls could go and play at his retreat......luckily I always had an excuse as to why they could not go, and therefore thank goodness this man did not have access to my girls.
Recently he was arrested for the attempted abduction of a 5 year old girl....... It came to light that he moved to this area having been arrested for something similar in the past.
Also he had been abusing the young daughter of one of the Mums I knew (the CID officer who interveiwed me later told me the jehovahs witness elders had tried to cover it up and deal with it themselves) and had child pornography on his computer....
And all the while he was going from door to door preaching !!!
