Sometimes it takes more than on camera theatrics to solve a case. Just saying, you can't just talk the talk, you've got to walk the walk.

As everyone in this valley knows, Fred Abdalla has always looked out for the children and elderly in Jefferson County. And I applaud him for that. Every time an incident would happen, he would be on camera telling everyone what a despicable person or persons that committed the crime were. The valley knows what I'm talking about. Why isn't he doing that now? Why isn't he on camera calling them "sick sons a *******" or "I'll make sure they'll get put away for as long as the law will allow." Even though this isn't "his" case, it never stopped him before. Jane Doe's a child. I am also surprised that Channel 9 is reporting on this story as much as they have been. They have always been a political station. You only hear, what "they" want you to hear.

Also, Since these boys took nude photos of the young girl without her permission, and sent them over the internet, that might legally constitute child ****. We hope federal law enforcement will consider getting involved.

Judy Jones, SNAP Midwest Associate Director, USA, 636-433-2511. snapjudy@gmail****, "SNAP (The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests) is the world's oldest and largest support group for clergy abuse victims. SNAP was founded in 1988 and has more than 12,000 members. Despite the word priest in our title, we have members who were molested by religious figures of all denominations, including nuns, rabbis, bishops, teachers, Protestant ministers and increasingly, victims who were assaulted in a wide range of institutional settings like orphanages, summer camps, athletic programs, Boy Scouts, etc."
