Perry has now spent 138 days in jail – for stepping up to the plate to protect children, and then daring to say he has lost faith in the justice system. This is the institutional response to allegations of childhood sexual abuse.
NOTE: Perry’s birthday is 22 July 2008. He will be 47. Pick up a card now. Have Masses said for him. Swamp him with love – lots of cards, letters and notes of best wishes.

There it is again. Another molester treated with judicial kid gloves…
Remember, Perry’s in jail. First, a six month sentence to coerce him to take the stand at an inquiry which is supposed to be addressing the institutional response to historic allegations of abuse but in reality has spent an inordinate time trying to sort out who Perry Dunlop rubbed shoulders, and who he glanced at out of the corner of his eye, and what he said to whom and what he meant or might have meant by what he said.
And remember that come September it will probably be another fifteen months behind bars because Perry publicly admitted he has lost faith in the administration of justice because of the way events have unfolded since he first stepped up to the plate to protect children fifteen long years ago.
And meanwhile, at the Ottawa courthouse a few miles from the Ottawa Detention where Perry is housed in virtual solitary confinement 24/7, another convicted paedophile gets a judicial tap on the back of the hand, a little judicial “Tut! Tut!” a lot of judicial compassion – and gets to serve his 90 day jail sentence on weekends!!!
Ninety days. Three months!!!!
For molesting a little five-year-old girl!!!
And jail time on weekends so he can hold onto his job!!!!
And brownie points because he admitted he did the dastardly deed.
And compassion because he explained that he was depressed when he molested the child.
And look at the contrast….
Six full months for Perry – that’s just for starters.
There has been not a judicial boo about Perry holding onto his job. None. They don’t give a hoot about Perry’s job or the well-being of his family.
Nor has there been a single judicial brownie point for Perry because he readily admitted he has lost faith in the system.
And there hasn’t been an ounce of judicial compassion acknowledging that Perry has a conscience and had to do what he had to do or he’d never be able to look himself in the mirror and would never forgive himself if a single child was hurt because he failed to act.
Where’s the judicial logic? Why kid gloves for a convicted paedophile and steel boots for Perry?
And look what’s happening South of the border. The whole issue of capital punishment aside look how they’re starting to go soft on paedophilia down there.
It’s small wonder Perry is where he is and the real and “alleged” paedophiles of Canada are where they are.
We are hurtling toward a moral abyss. Hurtling. I sometimes joke that one of these days we’ll have state run day care centres for paedophiles. The paedophiles can wander in and have their pick – it will be seen as beneficial for paedophiles who have a special affinity for sex with children (inter-generational sex they call it!) and equally beneficial for the children, who, as Kinsey insisted, are sexual beings. It’s black humour I admit, but I fear the day is coming faster than we think.
I remember about 20 years ago meeting a man from Sweden. His wife worked in a day care centre over there. She was upset. A routine was being introduced whereby staff were to masturbate the babies in their care. It was seen as healthy because, after all, the theory went, even babies are sexual beings and deserve sexual stimulation and gratification!
I am quite serious!
That is very Kinseyan. It doesn’t take rocket science to sort out who would clamour to work in a daycare with that as part of the job description, does it?
And it’s not much of hop skip and jump is it to go from masturbating babies because they are presumably sexual beings in need of sexual stimulation to determining that it’s really no big deal to molest a little five year old? Nor, in the same vein, is it much of a hop skip and jump to letting an “alleged” molester walk because his Charter rights to speedy trial have been violated, is it?
Dear Lord above have mercy on us.
I had to get that off my chest. I read those two articles, thought of Perry and just had to get it off my chest.
By the way, can you conceive for one moment that being depressed is a good rationale to sexually molest a child? Really?!!!
What have we come to? And where oh where are we going?
Enough for now,
