Jaycee Lee Dugard as many know by now has been found after 18 years. I was reading a story on Yahoo, and a few others about the fact people KNEW he was there with the children.
The quotes from these neighbors and others just made me cry. You hear about the ONE call to the police - ONE in 18 years. It makes me sick.
Its like the world has just decided that we just close our eyes, and stick to our own personal business. We can't get involved even with a anonymous call to the police. One person in 18 years did that. That fact makes me very angry! Hear no evil, See no evil, Speak no evil!
They are going to want to hang the police out to dry for missing things when they did come to the house, and never bothered going into the backyard where they were. We don't know all the circumstances around that yet, but you just watch no one will wish to look at all the others that blew things off as well.
Damon Robinson has lived next door to the Garridos for more than three years and his then-girlfriend in 2006 told him she saw tents in the backyard and children. Kids on the block called him "Creepy Phil."
"I told her to call police. I told her to call right away," he said.
Monica Adams, 33, whose mother lives on their street, said she knew Phillip Garrido was a sex offender and that he had children living with him. Other neighbors knew, too, but they assumed police were keeping tabs on him.
"He never bothered any one, he kept to himself," Adams said. "What would we have done? You just watch your own."
It makes me wonder how many other people are in similar situations under people's noses that they don't want to get involved in. How many others KNOW of molesters having children in their homes, and NOT wishing to call the police. We need to just WATCH our own!
Hear no evil, See no evil, Speak no evil!
The detached nature and the rose colored glasses people use. Is is any wonder WHY so much abuse is present in the world?
How many more stories does the world need to hear about when you are talking AWFUL circumstances like this, and come to find out no one did a thing.
One campus personnel that had an hint something wasn't right, and NOW she and her children get to find ways of surviving life. One person with very little contact had enough compassion for fellow humans to go the extra mile. Thank the LORD for that person!
People are going rage about the sick mind of Phillip Garrido. There is no doubt that man is, but we never look to ourselves do we? What is wrong with US as a society when we have so many clues, and never do anything to follow up on them?
To me - Phillip Garrido isn't the only one with issues. We aren't going to look further are we?
That to me is the saddest part. I will be praying for Jaycee and everyone involved with her. Goodness knows they have such a hard road ahead. I can't even imagine! Phillip Garrido and his wife are responsible for the kidnapping and what happened afterwards, but 'we look after our own' attitude played into the length of time Jaycee and her family had to endure this.
When are we going to realize the "Hear no evil, See no evil, Speak no evil" stand isn't working! We can't stop child abuse or sexual abuse until we take a good hard look ourselves.
