I was looking into obtaining an AAS in Criminal Justice - in order to be an advocate. I met this character. I felt very uncomfortable and now I know why. This is a copy of a news report from todays news. I have edited it in order to take out the locations.

LOCATION deleted -- The former head of the LOCATION deleted Park Police is behind bars, accused of sexually abusing a boy for two and a half years.

William Jacobs, 66, of LOCATION deleted, has been charged with two counts of criminal sexual conduct.

According to the criminal complaint, Jacobs started sexually abusing the boy during the summer of 2007 when the victim was 12-years-old. The alleged abuse ended this month.

Jacobs was arrested Thursday night at his home. He is being held on a $1 million bail.

Jacobs ran the Park Police for 14 years.

Hennepin County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Lisa Kiava says Jacobs is a counselor at an undisclosed camp. He's also a faculty member in the Criminal Justice Studies at the **local** Community and Technical College in ***local****.

Jacobs is scheduled to be in court on Monday.

I have never felt like kicking a cops xxxxx before now. I sat in an office with this guy.

After my SA I encountered the police and got NOTHING for help.

Well that's really hard to take. I'm sorry for you DJ. I guess it's just a sign of how deeply rooted the whole problem of CSA is in our society. With 1 in 3, 1 in 6, no institution is free of it.

I hope you don't let this stop you from pursueing the degree. He is the bad apple not the profession. You would make a good advocate.

As Mark Twain once quipped, history may not repeat itself, but it does rhyme.

Unfortunately, the problem of abusive behavior within police forces is quite extensive, maybe more so than some others.

God grant me
The Serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The Courage to change the things I can,
And the Wisdom to know the difference.
