[NaturalNews] A few years back the Boston Globe wrote a series of investigative reports detailing how a number of Catholic priests who had sexually abused children – mostly young boys – over the course of their priesthood.
More recently, Jerry Sandusky, a former defensive coordinator for the once-vaunted Penn State college football program, was found guilty of sexually abusing young boys in the shower at the sports facility there, and that the program’s long-time, national championship-winning coach, the beloved Joe Paterno – “JoePa” to most everyone who knew him – was complicit in that he did too little to expose his friend and fellow coach.
How about the Delaware pediatrician who “allegedly sexually abused more than 100 of his patients over the span of a decade”?
If you’re sensing a pattern here that many of our country’s most sacred, once-respected institutions and professions are crumbling around us, you would be correct.
According to reports in 2010, Dr. Earl Bradley, who has since been dubbed “America’s Worst Pedophile,” stood accused of molesting 103 young patients in his office in the tiny town of Lewes, Del., since 1994.
’13 hours of video files’
Detailed in 160 pages of what ABC News described as “disturbing court documents,” Bradley apparently videotaped his sex acts. The documents said Bradley repeatedly molested his child patients as their parents sat nearby and unsuspecting outside the waiting room of his BayBee’s Pediatrics clinic.
“I cannot say certain things that I am feeling, and I am feeling a great deal. I am determined to see that this defendant will never, ever be in a position again to hurt another child,” Delaware’s attorney general, Beau Biden, told reporters.
Bradley was initially held on a $2.3 million bond following his arrest in December 2010. Court papers said he had abused patients just days before he was picked up.
The court documents described Bradley’s alleged actions between 1998 and 2009. Of the children mentioned in the indictment, only one of them was male, reports said. The indictment was on 471 counts, reflecting the depth and scope of this animal’s perversion.
“A search of Bradley’s medical practice late last year (2009) lead to the analysis of more than 13 hours of video files, computers and hard drives and more than 7,000 patient files,” ABC News said.
