White Trash At Its Finest
Thanks to Jon for pointing this tid-bit out. Jon and I posted links to the story about the local sheriffs deputy that was arrested on child molestation and drug charges. He was later arraigned on 143 sex abuse and drug charges, and after I read more about this guy, I want him to go to jail for as long as frickin' possible. If he's sentenced the maximum for each of those counts, he won't get released in my lifetime, which is the way I hope things go.
Personally, I'd like to see the guy fry, but that's something, as a parent, all child molesters do. What makes this even more disturbing is that the officer was a DARE officer and a School Resource Officer, meaning he was interacting with kids on a daily basis. I wouldn't be surprised to see more charges coming out of this now that things have gone public (more victims coming forward, etc... ).
The part that I found entertaining, that I wouldn't have seen had it not been for Jon pointing it out, was a story that somebody shared at the arraignment that just screams as to the type of folks that live in certain areas of Central Oregon, and the type of person this guy was:
"I know that he was a good police officer," said Bend-area resident Janet Wickersham. But she also said that five years ago, after the officer came to her Spring River home to take a domestic-violence complaint (involving one of her four children's fathers), Malloy, not in uniform asked if he could date her daughter -- who was then 16 years old. (He would have been about 33 at the time.)
Understand that the Spring River area is just a few miles from where I work and, by and large, quite a few of the folks that live there are just like that. If that doesn't scream white trash, I don't know what does.
"I told him, 'Not until she's 18 -- then you can come and get her,'" Wickersham said. "He didn't do anything out of the ordinary. He never did anything with my daughter. ... He lived down the road from us." She said the family moved to Newport for a couple years, and that her daughter, now 21, still lives there.
Acknowledging she was "a little drunk" at the time, Wickersham said she responded to Malloy's request by putting her own arm around him and lifting her leg to do the same. "I said, 'What do you want with a near-virgin with no experience, when you can have a mature woman like me?' But guys like younger women."
At one point during the court proceeding, as the judge set the new bail amount, Wickersham exclaimed: "He's in deep!"
