In Queensland Australia a jury takes just 40 minutes to declare a father not guilty after he bashed the paedophile who violated his 10 year old son.

I don't condone violence yet there is a little affected boy inside of me that would dearly have loved to have had the quality of relationship that would have enabled me to tell my parents at the time and for those parents to have engaged in similar actions.

Maybe - just maybe - my journey of recovery would not be taking me this long; neither would it be so lonely.

One can but dream.
I endured all my yesterdays. I prevail in all of my todays. I exercise my right to be able to enjoy my tomorrows. I choose not to do it alone.

I'm really glad the jury found him not guilty. Imagine the extra guilt the kid would have felt if his dad was found guilty.

The whole story really disturbed me. I was 10 when my dad was having a party and someone came into my room. I still have this recurring dream/nightmare about what would have happened if I told him right away.

(I'm from Queensland)

THAT is how a real dad acts when his son tells him that he has been violated in the worst possible way.

Thanks Expom!!

More than meets the eye!
