      Gee, just like the old days, when I grew up on the Upper West Side. Some things never change. This crap happened to me too many times in the 70s.

      I believe that there should be a public campaign encouraging victims to speak out in a loud voice at the time of molestation or other criminal act–publicly identifying both the perpetrator and the act itself. Potentially this would encourage the taking of photos of the perpetrator by bystanders so that he/she could later be apprehended.
