A while ago, my mum and dad's next door neighbours windows were smashed, all the ones at the front of the house was smashed in. Nobody understood why, the neighbour is in his 70's, and my dad, who had been having trouble with with my aunts new boyfriend (long story which I wont go into!) assumed that it was his windows that were meant to have been smashed, and they'd smashed the neighbours in error. Anyway, it has come to light in the past week that he has been arrested for molesting young girls. My parents dont know the details (such as when this was supposed to have taken place, how many involved) but I'm He's been their neighbour since they moved in in the early 80's
Gosh, dont really know what to say. Clearly not unreasonable to be shocked! I hope its wrong, there are some vindictive people out there. Thing is, even if he is now cleared, I would imagine that you (and I) would not feel comfortable with him around our children. The world can be a very sad place Hope its not true ....
But the OP said she was shocked, shocked at the fact that he has been accused - not shocked at the fct that he is guilty.. are you all seriously sayig you wouldn't be shocked if someone you knew was acused?
I wouldnt be shocked at anyone being accused now actually. You cant even take a photo of your own kids in public without someone screaming you're a pervert. (Happened to a dad I know when someone elses kids were in the background).
