BJ'S BLOG 01/05/13 "Ronaiah Tuiasosopo"
Last week, Dr. Phil interviewed Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, the man behind the whole Manti Te'o/ hoax, and revealed some sad information about his past.
Ronaiah admitted on Dr. Phil’s show that he was molested a number of times for many years. It started when he was 12-years-old and it was done by a Mormon pastor for troubled youths who was close to his father and family.
He was too ashamed to tell his father and didn’t want to make him “hate the church.” Sadly, the abuse kept happening and went to "every form of molestation and abuse you could think of." He also said that he had been raped more than once.
I think child rape should be considered the most heinous crime in society with the biggest penalties…even more so then murder.
My reason for this is when this happens to a child, they grow up in an enormous amount of pain and on many occasions, when they’re adults they end up hurting other people as well as themselves.
This crime has such a huge ripple effect on society and something has to be done about it. There are too many of these horrible human beings who have previous records that are out free.
Look at Ronaiah; he is another victim of child rape and look at the confused mess he’s become.
Steve made a good point that there have been people he has known in his life that have gone through this and a fair amount turn to drugs or alcohol; it drastically messes up their entire lives.
This should be the biggest crime someone can commit in America, and I believe our politicians should do something about it.
