A Palm Beach County family went public yesterday with ugly allegations of sexual abuse at West Palm Hospital.
According to a lawsuit recently filed in circuit court, a troubled 9-year-old boy voluntarily submitted to the facility for psychological observation was abused by a hospital staffer known as "Mr. Dan."
If that's not bad enough on its own legs, the family's lawyer says the alleged abuser had previously been arrested in 2005 for exposing himself in a Lake Worth park. But the earlier pinch wasn't caught by the hospital's administration.
"It just violates the basic safety rules, starting with the fact that a children's hospital should not hire a man who has been arrested for masturbating in a park," says the family's attorney, Jeff Herman.

The Baptist church in this article is 2 miles from my house. In April 2013, their 28 year old former youth pastor was arrested for indecency with a child under 17.
There has been a lot of press coverage about child molestation by a few Catholic priests due to the deep pockets of the RCC and they are an easy target. There are just as many if not more child victims of sex crimes in protestant churches. We just don’t read about them as much in the newspaper.

There are 100 times more child victims of sex crimes in PUBLIC SCHOOLS. We just dont read about them as much in the newspaper.
