    Why is it that when ever I read a story in the news about this type of crime that it is most of the time with a teacher. Is it because that they get more press than the others that commit the same crime?

    Re the teacher accused of taking bondage photos of children: Anderson expressed understandable outrage at this pervert continuing to collect a teacher's pension. I am a retired attorney. That pension might be available to pay toward a civil judgment on behalf of one or more of those children. Anderson can check with his legal staff.

    Mr. Cooper, I value your opinion because I find it objective and because I enjoy listening to you talk. I'd like you to entertain the following. Let's say this teacher is a pedophile. How was he supposed to get help? How was he supposed to cope with that problem? And if there are no avenues for him to pursue in correcting his problem how do we hold him accountable? I understand that what he did is very wrong and I believe that our justice system will be able to prosecute him according to the crimes he has committed. But pedophilia is a real diagnosis in the DSM and it is a real problem but I don't think there exists a way for a pedophile to get help in managing his/her disorder... I certainly don't think the school district had "how to manage your sexuality" classes... Should they? Maybe the way to prevent this from happening in the future is to recognize that the problem exists and attempt to prevent disaster before it occurs. Just a thought, I'd love to hear what you think.

    Unbelievable! Being a school bus driver for 20 years, I know students will pipe up at the littlest tings and certainly raise hell if something BIG happens. I do not know all the details, but I hope this wasn't a terribly traumatizing event for said students. How sequestered are these classrooms that this could go unnoticed? As an abuse survivor, I know how people can gain trust through being something they are not, just to gain personal pleasure. Shame on the school for not noticing this sooner!
