Camp Counselor Sen. Brown Says Sexually Abused Him Could Still Face Punishment

By Karen Anderson, WBZ-TV

BOSTON (CBS) – There is a possibility that the camp counselor who sexually abused Scott Brown when he was ten-years-old at a Cape Cod religious summer camp could still face criminal charges.

According to Attorney Mitchell Garabedian, who has represented hundreds of sexual abuse survivors, a survivor can file charges until the age of 25 for a report of sexual assault.

However, he says in Massachusetts there is an exception: For every day the perpetrator or the sexual abuser leaves the state, the statute is extended for a day.  “So he left the state when Scott Brown was a certain age and he’s not come back, Scott Brown could file charges now.”

WBZ-TV’s Karen Anderson reports.

Scott Brown has not named the camp or the camp counselor, and his spokeswoman says he does not intend to do so now.

He has not spoken with the camp counselor since the abuse occurred.

Garabedian says he believes there are many other victims of this abuser, he says “Without a doubt.”  But he says it’s up to Scott Brown to decide whether to ask for an investigation.

“Senator Brown has a responsibility to himself and his family for his emotional stability.  If and when he does report the name publicly of the perpetrator, I am sure it would help other victims come forward and empower other victims and make the world a safer place for children.”

  • Ellen

    Scott Brown should name the abuser and the camp this sexual abuse took place, so to give other kids who were abused courage to point the finger at their predator and give justice a chance to set things straight.

    • notabeliever


      Has Brown been hiding something all these years that was about to come out so he made up this story. If its true then he was not harmed at all. Look at his career, it seemed to be a good thing.

      • I am a believer

        To notabeliever:

        Your ignorance regarding childhood sexual abuse is glaring. “It seemed to be a good thing?” Are you a sexual predator attempting to justifying your own actions?

        Have you not read any of the news coverage regarding the abuse by Catholic priests regarding the impact upon adults who have been abused as adults and their reluctance to speak of the horrific abuse? You are living in a closet of your own making.

      • john

        your’ e an idiot. ohhh because he’s now a senator the fact that he was molested is fine?? maybe someone could molest your kid and if he/she ends up ok 40 years later then we can all say i was a good thing too. get a life

      • baga waga

        no, you first.

    • FN Jerk

      I asbolutely concur! Do the right thing Scott Brown

      • Snoopy

        At most, Scott should hire a hit man and take him out. The whole trial thing is too convoluted and messy. Maybe he can just have some CIA guys erase him some night or else launch a sweet little hellfire missile from a Predator drone. I’d be willing to press the button if nobody else wants to.

      • Apeon

        Another simulated ‘thought’—did your owner take you for another walk?

    • Mark

      I hope that same opinion extends to the all victims of sexual mollestation and rape Ellen. Including woman. While I agree with you that it is the appropriate thing to do to give justice a chance, the setting ‘things’ straight part has to come with the victim. They need their time to cope with the disgusting attack to them. Not everyperson is like you and I and would be ready willing and able to immediately come forward and point the finger as you say at accuser.
      Not everyone was as strong as you and I were at the age of 10 when we were forced against our wills to submit to our deviant abusers to point them out to others the next day so that justice could be dealt.

      • Ellen

        But Mark, Scott Brown is a man now, and not 10 years old. I do feel that abusers should be outed because of the tendency to abuse again and again. We have plenty of people in their 50’s and 60’s and even older that keep on doing this horrid thing time and time again just because no one ever told the authorities about what was going on.

      • misstickly

        My 15 year old mildly learning disabled daughter could not cope with trying to name the five disgusting pigs that gang raped her. Nor, did I force/encourage her to.

        However, at 15 I was raped, as well, and made sure that guy went to prison.

        So, I guess there’s no “brilliant” answer to this one, folks. We all get by as best as we can. Blame the attacker for any attacks. The victim owes no one anything.

    • Chansey Finnbar

      I am a lifelong Cape Codder. We only have one religious camp here… Camp Good News, in Sandwich. The camp confirmed this morning that Sen. Brown DID attend the camp.
      The story is in today’s Cape Cod Times. The camp spokeswoman said they are “Devastated” by the news.

      • Ellen

        Thank you Chansey for that very valuable information. Your better then WBZ or any news station out there. Once again thank you.

      • Peabody from Peabody

        Seems to me that the senator is trying to politically innoculate himself from some future personal revelation.

      • Barney F.

        NO truth to the rumors that Scott and I attended the same camp at the same time. Just because we are Washington at the same time is just coincidence.

      • rufus levin

        If Barney Franks signs up to be a Counsellor….be VERY WORRIED PARENTS.

      “The law does not pretend to punish everything that is dishonest. That would seriously interfere with business.” ~ Clarence Darrow

    • john smith

      be careful of witch hunts !!!! that can be much worse for all parties. Secondly I was abused.. Senator get over it and move the heck on. I think he is using this as a sympathy cause as most progressives are sympathetic to this type of charge… just my thought on the matter..

  • SuzieQ

    Scott, you took it this far. Now you must finish by naming the abuser and the camp. It’s now your responsibility to bring justice. You opened the “can of worms”, now you must close it.

    • Anna

      Have you considered the possibility that if he names the man and cannot prosecute due to statute of limitations then he could be sued? Possibly even prosecuted for libel.

      • Chris

        To be libelous, something must be untrue, and the one saying it must KNOW it is untrue, AND that it damages the person described. While revealing the man’s name would certainly be reasonably expected to be damaging, unless someone can demonstrate that Brown is making it up intentionally, libel – or slander – wouldn’t be serious risks.

        Most importantly, if he knows it to be true, he should go further to protect any other child that still might be at risk.

      • beowulf

        LIbel isn’t a crime, its a tort (that is, grounds for a civil action). The statute of limitation simply means too much time has passed to prosecute, it doesn’t erase the past. If the camp counselor sues for libel, well that would be a very bad idea. 1. The truth is always a defense to libel , if the jury finds Senator Brown’s testimony more credible than his accused molester (Magic 8 Ball says yes!) then there is no libel. 2. Testifying at trial (or deposition) leaves the accused molester exposed on possible perjury charges. Since the crime would have just occurred, there’s no SOL problem. If a criminal trial jury is convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that the accused molester lied under oath about a material fact, then he faces up to 20 years in prison (Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 268 Section 1).

    • wofmann

      I agree – its the right think to do anyway

    • jakeman

      What I think…I think this might be all made up.

    • notabeliever

      Sure, destroy some innocent person’s life. Brown’s life and career seemed to be OK. He lied his way int a US Senate seat. Brown must need some cash to pay off the GOP for accepting money under false pretenses.

    • Snoopy

      Exactly – which is why the hellfire missile idea is so darn good. Can I get some support out there?

      • jackoboa

        No you clown.
        Go get some anti rage tablets, and get out of moms basement, a Job and girlfriend in that order.

      • Antifreeze Jill


    • weeone

      so he must go “all the way” just to make you happy

  • Time to go scott

    For Scott Brown to put this accusation in his book and not take action is nothing more than grandstanding by a LAWMAKER. If he doesn’t name this person or seek justice then he should resign immediately. To ackowledge a crime and then not act on it would be malfeasant by this elected official.

    • extreme doublestandard

      Yeah, it’s not like he drove a car with a woman who wasn’t his wife into a river and left her to die.

    • STM

      “Time to go scott”
      You’ve got to be kidding. He didn’t do enough?!!!!!
      By the nature of your taunts, I strongly suspect you of just such a crime.

    • jo

      whoa, take it easy there fella, there is no reason to accuse him of grandstanding…it is well known that most victims of child sexual abuse withhold the memory or keep the violation to themselves…you sure seem all to ready to pounce…have you no compassion?
      It is entirely likley Sen Brown knows the perpetrator can not be prosecuted…if this happened 40 odd years ago…malfeasance by an elected official you say…this is a complicated subject so try relaxing with the “off with your head” mentality!

      • Greg

        No reason to accuse himof grandstanding???Are you kidding? Look at the venue he chose to make his disclosure. Not a counselor. Not his wife. But a book for all the world to read. Please return to reallity.

      • eighter

        He needs to name this person so the guy can be put behind bars and not get is grubby hands on other children! These pervs attack multiple victims, others need to be alerted because this guy probably has access to children now. Brown is a grown man now, this guy can’t hurt him any longer, time to find the courage to protect others.

    • cynthis marsh

      i love people with black and white views. Scott Brown should do whats right for him, not you-not me. You sound more political than wanting a wrong corrected. A grandstander. What Scott wants to do is his business.

      • Jane Hedges

        Scott Brown should do whats right to ensure no other innocent children suffer the same abuse he suffered. It’s not about him anymore or you or I. We are all adults, but most pedophiles don’t stop when they get older, that is a fact. What if his abuser is hurting someone else, right now….Scott Brown should name his abuser and the location of where it occurred.

    • tom

      If he had confessed to his wife or family Before the book came out, thats one thing. He didn’t – it looks like Grandstanding to me too.

    • Snoopy

      You’re a tool.

      • Apeon

        Your namesake’s IQ is better than yours—-such articulate thought must come right after your owner walks you!

    • Imsmarterthanu

      Hey, Time to go Scott. The victim is the one that’s been victimized. Our anger should be directed at the low life that did this to Sen Brown. His first responsibility is to himself and his family and whether he thinks it would be wise for him to disclose more details. He understandably may not want to re-live such horrible events.

      Criticize him for his politics. Leave him to his own conscience on this very personal matter.

    • smokehouse56

      Not necessarily true. If you report all the illegal you have seen over your life you would be in court all the time. Report someone running a stop sign? Jaywalking?

      • STM

        Agreed, but this is not just someone running a stop sign. This is a crime that could easily cause an angered father to respond by killing the attacker.

  • fantum

    This smells bad, why would he publically announce an abuser but refuse to name him?

    • ty

      Perhaps the alleged molester is already dead.

    • Dee in Pa

      well,he hasn’t been getting to much publicity lately and has voted to the left a lot. He will be up for re-election and this would get him the sympathy vote .He is a big disappointment !

    • sal

      perhaps because the accuser can not be prosecuted?

    • teetotaler

      It’s easy to write a book without naming names but the burden of proof would be upon Brown.

      • Liz Raboin

        When did Scott Brown have time to write a book with all the important issues of the day???????????????

        liz MA

    • harryworth

      Hey Fatnum, get a life will Ya! christsakes you lot need to get a Job.

    • Apeon

      the ‘smell’ is coming from your ‘political’ question—read up on sexual abuse and educate yourself!

  • Abuse Counselor

    Those criticizing Scott for how he handles this should be ashamed of themselves. Every abuser handles things in their way and in their time. Back off and let him deal with this. To call for the victim to step down because he doesn’t do it the way you want says a lot about who you are. A person with a political agenda. The left is only for victims if they fit their agenda. It has been shown over and over again and is shown by comments on here.

    • Abuse Survivor

      Thank you abuse counselor! Sexual abuse is a very difficult thing to get over and every abuse victim needs to do what’s best for them. I know other kids could be saved, etc., but if you destroy yourself in the process, what then? This attitude that you must name your abuser or you’re a bad person is just another form of blaming the victim.

    • jo

      You are so right on with the fact that the left has no use for or compassion toward others if they do not fit their agenda…well said! I find it so liberating to be an independent thinker…no need to froth at the mouth every time an opponent says or does something!

    • tom

      Except for the whole announcing it in a book thing, you’re right.

  • John

    Oh fantum, always taking the side of the rapist, never the raped. typical lib.

  • Sanjose MIke

    If Brown identifies the abuser, (which in my opinion he should), he will either have to go to trial and publicly describe the abuse, or suggest that other victims carry that burden for him. So folks, it’s a privacy issue also. It’s not particularly fun for victims to be forced to publicly identify their particular type of abuse.

    Perhaps some of you could adjust your viewpoint with that understanding in mind and try not to be so hypercritical of him.

  • lev

    you sound like a liberal progressive in sheeps clothing to me…and to use the word “rape” in your description of votes he has taken that you may not support is utterly disgusting…you are no tea party candidate…and he never promised to be anything other than who he was and is, like it or not he is not a conservative republican…grow up will ya…one of the most immature and ignorant comments I have read in a while!

  • Kim Baliey

    Ok, Now we know why Scott is a RINO and serves his Black Masters so loyally.

    • jo

      you, kim baliey, are just plain vulger…at least be thoughtful in your remarks…insults are the last refuge of a scoundrel! I voted for Scott Brown…and have not supported/ been happy with a few of his votes…BUT…I know him as a person and a politician and as such he is voting just the way he did as a politician in MA…he is being consistent and he IS voting what he feels is best for the people he represents whether I like it or not…SO COULD YOU STOP BEING A MEAN and SMALL MINDED PERSON…OR IF NOT, JUST GO AWAY WITH YOUR VENOMOUS REMARKS!

  • Missourimule

    Scott Brown did nothing but join the parade of sex abuse victims, because it’s the politically popular thing to do. He’s looking for the “compassionate vote”, because he’s pitched aside the conservative voters that elected him. Could it have happened? Sure – but there’s no more reason to bring it up now than there would have been, say, when he was running for the Senate in the first place.

    • Brown dump

      Yep. Scott will have plent of time to be up John Kerrys skirt.

      We conservatives will not support, send money or vote for him again. Not ever.

      So perhaps he can reflect on how the left too used and abused him. He’ll have plenty of free time. Very
      shallow pathetic man

    • jo

      Who are you to say when someone should “bring up a subject”? He NEVER portrayed himself to be a conservative, sorry I had to correct that falsehood that keeps popping up here…HE RAN FOR THE MA SENATE SEAT JUST AS HE IS…the conservative voters knew he was closer to their political belief system than his uber liberal opponent it is as simple as that…

  • Thank you Scott

    Thank you Scott

    I would like to thank Senator Brown for his courage to open up this topic, however he chose to do it. Anyone who is criticizing him on this issue should be ashamed of themselves, including the Tea Pty supporter. The problem with these posts, twitter, and texting is that people write stupid things without thinking. Sexual abuse is a major issue and everyone who has been abused should be grateful that a sitting U.S. Senator is telling what happened to him. I bet if he were a woman he would be getting much more positive press. The odds were that this was only going to open him up to ridicule, so I support him for his move. I will support Scott even if I don’t always agree with his politics.

  • billybeer

    I don’t believe a word that comes out of his mouth. He lied about his political persuasion to get elected.

    He may be lying about this alleged sexual abuse to sell a book.

    • AB

      I voted for
      brown and donated $500 to his campaign. I am very suspicious of his abuse claim. How much did he get to write the book? When the abuse claims were discussed while negotiating the book deal, was the price increased to Brown? I would not vote for him again. I am Scott Brown and I drive a truck…I am republican and would rather leave my vote blank than to put an “X” next to his name.

    • jo

      CORRECTION: he did not lie about his political persuasion to get elected…remember the big tent republicans have (I am an independent) not all republicans are conservative…and if you followed his voting record in MA you darn well knew he never lied about his positions while campaigning for election…you are just plain wrong accusing him of misrepresenting himself…and I say that as a consituent of his who was not pleased with his vote on financial reform…but I know he has integrity whether I agree with him or not!

    • Apeon

      Are you J. Carter’s brother?

  • notabeliever

    He has lied about so many things to so many people, how can anyone believe this. Maybe he is a sexual predator who has just been discovered and is looking for a way to explain away his sin. Remember, Democrats have a DNA strand that let them sin.

  • Cowboy

    The people who put him in office are turning on him because of his performance, and suddenly this comes up?

    Smells like old fish.

  • Jane Hedges

    After reading all the comments….it is no longer about Scott Brown, it is about other young children who are being protected. Priest, boy scout leaders, teachers, abusers take many forms and for each day they are unnamed another child is put at risk.

    That is what this issue really boils down to, the fact that Scott Brown’s abusers could be repeating the abuse and nothing is being done to expose him, nor any effort made to ensure he doesn’t abuse other CHILDREN!

    • Apeon

      The act of publishing this in a widely publicized book will make it easy for other victims to figure out that they have an ally, and then they can decide “for themselves” if they want to join Scott

    • Professor Deborah

      Good day Jane,

      If Senator Brown had any intension to protect children, he would have divulged this information to the proper authorities even before writing it in a book. I do not believe that allegations in that, yes, some things happened to many of us in life and as for me, the person is now dead, however, it is still not something that I would want to put in a book unless one of 2 things could come from it, it could helpa others, which it cannot at this point or it can help me benefit in book sales. Since he has done done the obvious to report this person…in order to help others, only one thing comes to mind, he did it to help his own pocketbook and re-election prospects. On that same note, he should have thought this through in that now, there will be tremendous pressure from the public for him to divulge this information and if he does not, or if it is ever found to be untrue, this is something that he will never live down.
      Also, he did not seem to have any problems posing for nude photos when he was young, there did not seem to be any shame in him for that…or modesty.

  • Cynic

    One thing Mr.Garabedian leaves out is that some Lawyer would make a Basket full of money off the case…. I’m certain he would love to take the case. Hasn’t he become the Donald Green or Dane Shulman of abuse cases.

  • Mannie

    It’s going to be hard tom prove after all these years, and there is a serious possibility of persecuting [sic] an innocent person. You can’t unring the abuse bell, but you can’t unring the false accusation bell either.

  • Susan

    This is criminal! Scott Brown is hurting every child, ever abused, with his desire to publish his abuse and then a cowardice not to follow through; gutless!

    I think this is his cover story for gay youthful indiscretions and the Democrats/globalists have on him and are threatening to go public with. He has been marching to their drummer like one who is being blackmailed.

  • olcoot

    How many of you can recall a name from 40 years ago? Get a grip

    • Cynic

      I just recalled a name from 60 years ago but WBZ wouldn’t print it.

      • Lucky girl

        So did I, whats wrong WBZ, a name from 40 years ago scare you. Who do you pretend to protect, the victims or the criminals. Olcoot, I do remember names, you don’t forget. Evidently you have never been victimized. Hopefully you never will be. It stays with you forever.

    • Cynic

      Lucky Girl….The interesting thing that everyone that grew up in West Quincy in the late 40’s and early 50’s knows who I mean….He was the neighborhood pervert.

    • Karen

      You never forget the name of your abuser. Ever. I can name mine… and it’s been 49 years now… clear as a bell on that one. No doubt, Senator Brown can name his too.

      And I applaud Senator Brown for coming forward and talking about this ~ nothing to be ashamed of, however, many live with shame for years ~ he was victimized and is in his healing process. It is very difficult to convict your abuser and one must choose where to put ones energy… in healing or in a courtroom… most of these monsters never get jail time and it is what I call a “catch and release” process anyways…~ and there are many, many monsters (pedophiles, child sex abusers, monsters) that are freely walking amongst us all and I can name a few myself that have NEVER been convicted of their heinous crimes toward children… there are many walking freely in our streets and living in our neighborhoods ~ it’s frightening, as with each victim it escalates and they become more empowered to continue doing it… (power and control)… the entire system is so dysfunctional and is very broken. The Senator can seek good counsel on what to do and yes, he can put it on the record in a Police Dept. who his abuser was as to notify the authorities in the area where this monster lives ~ believe me, this monster has a track record and it will come out. I have nothing but respect for the Senator and applaud his sharing openly with all of us as he will encourage other victims to do the same and unfortunately, he is not alone… many of us understand all too well… and unless you’ve lived it, don’t say what he should or should not do… he’ll figure it out.

  • Cynic

    It is interesting that if you use the word Gay in your comments it will go through. If you use the Dictionary word it doesn’t.

  • anonymous

    I was sexually abused as a child. and threatened to not tell anyone. When I did tell a family member about it I was called a liear, an evil child, etc. I spent days, weeks, months suppressing the shame and the hateful lack of support- People who have not been abused have no idea how deep the scars are and should at least be kind enough and wise enough not to judge. Prosecution? It’s not always the answer. Sometimes the attempt to obtain so called justice comes at too high a price. I had counseling as an adult and now, so many years later I do not care to dredge up that dirty horrible past. It’s time to move on. And I have faith in a higher power that does make sure justice is done.

    • Tim Armstrong

      As a sexual abuse victim myself, I couldn’t agree with you more. Thanks for your comment. Well stated.

      • Karen

        Bless you Tim ~ your comment is heartfelt and I too, am sorry for your abuse ~ bless… and I send you a “hug” ~ hugs, are healing and if I could, I’d give Senator Brown one too. (there’s an “understanding” amongst those of us that we don’t even have to explain… we see things very differently in the world and our compassion & empathy run very deep. Thank you for yours.

    • wigwam

      I am sorry for the hell you must have gone through. Thank you for your insights into how going through that hell feels.

    • Apeon

      Well said—-and He will right all injustices—and at that time the horror will fade in light of his Love!

    • Karen

      I too, am sorry for the lack of support from your family member ~ and also appreciate your sharing so others reading these posts may understand… truly, as a “thriver” myself (I don’t like the word, “survivor”)… one never “gets over” the violent heinous act and I too, had years of therapy and it took me until I was 50 years old to feel beautiful… and to be comfortable in my own skin and recently, at age 52, feel like a worthy woman… I’ve found my voice and it’s taken me years of therapy to grow through the process of healing. I was 3 and my identical twin sister witnessed 5 boys who savagely attacked me, and I was hospitalized… she has endured guilt up to a few years ago, that she couldn’t protect me… I hemorrhaged for 3 days from my injuries and unfortunately, an Uncle also abused me ~ my family has supported me and I hear your pain and have great understanding what you’ve endured as my Mother was ganged raped by neighborhood boys in her home town and she told her Mother and my Nana’s response was to slap her, and say she was never to tell her Father ~ (not the way to handle a young girl being victimized)… she had no support and was also deeply shamed ~ that’s immensely sad ~ the shame my Mom lived with and hurt… she too, went to counseling and for years… when I was victimized, she was in a striker body cast having broken her back, unable to take care of us… she was recovering in our home in a neighborhood where you’d not think or imagine things like this would ever happen…and unable to protect me… I was playing outside next to my house with my twin, my twin was held while I was attacked and she watched…helpless to help me… horrible, yes… I lived. I still have the scars, lived in fear every time I had to see these “boys” as back then, not much happened to boys who did such horrific things ~ we’re talking 49 years ago, here. Abuse has affected our family, deeply… my brother was raped in a private boys school when he was 9, I was 5 at the time… my Mom and Dad had the school closed down because of it… bless them… (My Mom passed away 7 yrs. ago), sadly, my brother was set up and abducted when he was 13 after attending a scout meeting and taken for 3 days and left for dead… he will never be the same…he too, has had counseling and the best of care ~ was a full blown alcoholic/drug addict to cope, even with the best of counseling… bless him ~ (that was during his teen years) shame? My brother never talks about it…and chooses not to ~(he’s almost 60 now)… his abductors and rapists: one hung himself in prison, and the other was released ~ (catch & release program),,, surely, to do it again. The affects this has on a family, I could write a novel myself ~ the fear is real, the silence is understandable… how can a child cope with such heinous acts?… even as an adult, it’s painful to talk about and I feel Senator Brown is very courageous and brave for doing so… some of these folks saying that he did it for $ ~ or to sell his book, is way off base… I feel that it was a very healing move on his part to cope with his past and putting it out there took great strength, regardless if he names his accuser… it’s out and he can begin to heal… the perpetrator knows who he is… and it is very real to a child, when a monster pedophile says to you “I’ll kill you if you tell”… I’ll kill you and your Brother, your Mother and Father and your pets… and some even demonstrate killing an animal to make it very real and sink in… I was very open with my own children due to all the heinous acts upon my family and my own son was sexually abused when a girlfriend took him with her daughter to watch while my other son was having pre operative work done for an upcoming surgery… he was sexually abused along with her daughter, when she chose to go shopping, leaving the children behind with her In-laws… oh, I to this day, regret and will regret to the day I die, that I left him in her care, someone whom I thought I could trust and it was not the arrangement for her to leave my son, with her in-laws while she went off for a couple hours… I wanted to kill them… reporting it, our son, very articulately told the police what happened and they did nothing to this monster… it went to the DA’s and was dropped… these monsters are very clever, very and know how to destroy a childs innocent soul ~ our son has also had the best of care in counseling for most of his life and the repercussions are too numerous to discuss in this small forum of how it affects a family or the victim themselves… the police know this monster and this monster was never convicted… our son, could possibly go after this monster and take him to court, that is his decision and that takes energy and does come at a high price ~ we will support him, as we have in every way possible… whatever he decides… counseling is so vital and important… I agree whoelheartedly that “people who have not been abused have NO idea how deep the scars are and should at least be kind enough and wise enough not to judge”… Amen to that comment and I agree wholeheartedly with you… Unless one has lived it, you will not ever understand and it is important to respect the victims who are finding their voices and rather than cut down Senator Brown, support him in prayer, so he can heal… He is not alone, sadly, he is not alone in being victimized… there are many who do not have the courage to come forth, like he has and sadly, due to some hurtful comments like some posted here, who would?… we must encourage and love those who have been harmed so deeply, to feel safe to discuss their pain and if Senator Brown chose to share it in a book for the world to read, I congratulate him for taking a mighty stand (regardless if he says who harmed him)… and I too, have faith in a higher power that does make sure justice is done and know what is like to want to kill those who harmed my son… if it weren’t for my faith, I would have done the deed and the PD, counselor, family members and pastors told me what good would it do my being in prison?… I had a job to do, and that was to bring up my sons and I’ve done just that and see the damage this monster has done and my son is strong, and finding his voice now ~ and I’m very proud of him during his healing process… and support him wholeheartedly ~ we’ve been given a life sentence and it is our choice to heal and move on and give it in God’s hands to punish because the system stinks and it is up to us to contact our legislators and make a difference (advocate as I’ve done) ~ it’s a slow arduous process, however, people will begin to pay attention more now, because of our dear Senator and I THANK Scott Brown for that. Change may be forthcoming ~ due to his finding his voice… as many of us, have found ours and many have yet to find theirs… the little girl in me, found the beautiful woman and the beautiful woman, has embraced the little girl and we are worthy… the monsters, are not worthy to breathe the same oxygen we are and need to be stopped. Scott Brown is making a difference. I challenge the naysayers to be proactive and contact their legislators to make a difference in changing the laws in their State and pray, that they are changed on the Federal level… One more child is too many and these monsters seem to have more rights than we do and are set back into our streets to do it again and that horrifies me. I speak up, I pray and therefore but for the grace of God, go I.

    All parents should read the book “Conversations With a Pedophile: In the Interest of our Children” by Amy Hammel-Zabin. It will aid parents in understanding where pedophiles are, how they gain your child’s trust and get children, whom they abuse, to stay silent.

    Do these comments reflect Peoples actual opinions or do the censors at WBZ pick and choose which comments to publish to create the impression that everyone supports a particular point of view.I just made a comment that would have sailed right through but as an experiment I included one word that seems to upset WBZ no end and my comment disappeared…. Strange.

    Unfortunate for Scouting that the picture of young Scott Brown shows him to be what appears to be a Boy Scout neckerchief when the article says it was a “religious summer camp.” I am certain that is unintentional on CBS’ part as I know they are supporters of Scouting principals and ideals. Aren’t they?
