If you still hold grudges for that long, then there is something wrong with you - victim or not. And before you try to say I'm defending a child molester - I can criticize this guy because I was a victim. You don't move on with your life if you're holding 35-year-long grudges. You get on with your life when you seek help and realize that just because someone did something to you when you were a child doesn't mean you have to keep losing your whole life.
This guy is going to jail (likely) because he's STILL playing victim 35 years later. I gave that up when I was 19 and I've got a great life.
I'm sick of people like you who want survivors to still play victim our whole lives. You want us to be ashamed, scarred, angry, and violent. I prefer being well-adjusted, having a successful career, and a great family. I got there by moving on with my life. Not by holding grudges and taking out revenge.
How dare you suggest that because I believe that vigilantism is foolish that I would defend a child molester. It's only people like you who (likely) haven't been victimized who create and celebrate these revenge fantasies. Life's a lot easier when you stop being a victim. It's just too bad this guy didn't have someone help him move on.
