Child Molesters At The Vamc


john999

Question

  • HadIt.com Elder

The St. Pete Times just had a story indicating that the Bay Pines VAMC employees convicted child molesters, and that these perverts have access to teens working in some volunteer program. The Tampa VAMC would not comment so that probably means they have a kiddie porn site operating out of the bosses office.

Here the VA wants to change the IU criteria ( GAO Report from Watchdog that 10th FO posted)

yet these criminals get employed by the VA.

I dont get the logic in that and it is just outrageous that these "perverts" which is what they really are -would be able to get fed employment- even as volunteers.

I had to go through a FBI background check to become an unpaid VA volunteer and all sorts of background checks for county and other types of employment-my husband went through all this too to be employed at the local VAMC-

has all that changed?

Terry- some years back a female VA shrink was convicted of sexually molesting her male VA patient.

I bet that happens more than we know. This vet , as I recall, was even reluctant to press charges against her but he did.

VAwatchdog.org has the full story and it is even worse. There is also a story about a doctor who molested a patient who is on staff at a VAMC. I am not even sure he is supervised when alone with female patients.

This all just makes me sick! Any personnel who may come in contact with children should have a background check and be fingerprinted! I don't know what is coming of this world or if it always has been this way and we just didn't know it or want to know it?

I substitute teach at our local elementary school and I had to go through a criminal background check and was fingerprinted, which was no big deal to me, I want our kids to be safe and to feel that my kids are safe.

I recently found out that we have a listed sexual offender who lives down the street from our house. I periodically check the state database and found this out. I even spoke to the one cop we have in our town, letting him know that I knew he lived near me. Even though his conviction was for statutory rape, I don't know if he was plea bargined down or what, but he isn't listed as a child molestor, but you never know. But I don't take any chances. My kids have rules about when they are out in the yard and know about this person. Never have met him personaly, don't want to. But it is sad that you have to fear about your own kids playing in the yard. They now have to come into the house if anyone comes on our property, just to be safe.

Of course there are preditors who are out there who have never been caught, so you could run a background check and nothing would come up. B)

Dear Fellow Veterans & Friends

How come we never hear of 51 year old men being sexually molested by women. Im so tired of the discriminaton that just because we are old, disabeld, look funny. No women have any interest in crossing the line with us.

Terry Higgins

I don't look at this as a matter of discrimination, just what was reported. There are cases of females being charged. Look at all the recent cases with female teachers? I look at this as any crime, it doesn't matter what the gender of the person who comitted the crime is.

On the way back from Home Depot today you will stop in at the local strip club where you will be attacked by a 21 year old female sex maniac. Unfortunately for you all she is after is your truck.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
