This is the person I've been writing about sporadically. This is the man I let into my home and life. This is the man who led me to have to sit with my children and ask them a question NO parent should ever have to ask their child: did this man touch you? Did he make any suggestions or interact with you in a way that was inappropriate or made you uncomfortable?
This is the man who showed my children that predators and molestors don't come with labels on them, that they look like you and I and are sometimes even in positions of authority.
Oh, and for the record, he wasn't "head of security forces"; He was NCOIC of Investigations. It's typical of Frank to talk himself up like that. I'll bet he's got the other pedophiles in the sexual offenders protective custody unit he's confined in believing he's pretty special by now.
But he's not. He's not special.
He's a fucking pedophile. There's nothing special about that.
