Child molesters hide in plain sight

I wish that perverts who are sexually attracted to children looked like Orcs or that they only hung around back alleys and under bridges like trolls but they don't. They look like everyone else and they frequently look better than average. They marry women with kids, like Humbert Humbert in Lolita.  They get a job that let's them be near children. They become masters at fooling parents and any nosey adult who might suspect. They put on a clerical collar but more frequently, probably much more frequently they just get an education degree and go to school. Mark Berndt is 61, years old and he doesn't have a vow of celibacy. He's free to have as many women as he wanted and guess what he's a child molester. I am not excusing the priests who did this kind of thing but this horrifying story goes to show that perverts can be found in all walks of life. It's the child molester's greatest strength, the ability to blend in and look so darn normal for years. I wonder if the media will take a look at how many children's lives are ruined in school by their own teachers? I doubt it.

Priests, rabbis, scout leaders, gym teachers, teachers, probably might be a few at least trying a hand at Disney land, wonder if anyone got past high grade of very nosy supervision yet.
