Was there even the need to publish this "story"? They will not publish the name of the minors, there is no other information. Why even bother. This does not need to be IN the paper at all. At this point in the investigation, just leave it alone NR.

Kind of like all the "sex" stories which are way out of the area. I don't get it either.

You each clicked on the story and even commented on it. Sex, gore and human tragedy sells. The NR sells space on their site based upon the number of visits, like circulation for print media. There isn't enough bad news nor tacky stories generated locally so they go outside our area to find stories they can headline to raise your prurient interests.

Yes I clicked on it to CHASTISE the need to publish such a thing. Knowing it involved minors, you know that they cannot release information, why bother. This does nothing but cause unneeded stress for the families involved.

No, it does more than cause unneeded stress for the families, it raises advertising revenue. The only way to change the NR's behavior is if enough readers don't open these trashy stories.

it is really sad to read the disappointed blogs from the gossip mongers who were hoping to get the local "scoop" on here with all of the possible names and identities even if encoded so that they could safely "protect' their loved ones from any of this.Sorry you did not get what you were looking for, but if you could look at things besides yourself, ,I will explain why this is a story.

No one lives inside of a bubble. so children interact and play together all the time. so if any child is being molested and is being told by any adult that this type of molestation is a form of "play" that is secret that adults and kids do and id secret and to not tell anyone" the kid will believe that.. so now when that same child has a sleep over, or is on the playground or is out in the dollhouse or wherever with your child and decides to show your child this same sort of secret "play" NOT believing that there is anything wrongh with it... then your child has been brought into the dark loop, and where does your innocent child take it to???

So, I hope you see how even though no names are , or will be mentioned.. it is a really big story. Please Don't give the all too often response of "IF IT HAPPENED TO MY CHILD , I WOULD......."because if if it is happening to your child's friends, it will eventually happen to your child...don't you get it???We as a community need to find out where it is happening to the original child, and question him or her or them and Judge them correctly and if found guilty, deal with them responsibly and put them away for everyone's sake.. it is the right thing to do, for the sake of all of the children...so I hope you see how it is a story.... and not just to sell newspapers, but a very important story...

I know how these things work. But THIS is NOT a story. There is NO INFORMATION HERE. It is an investigation. It says right in it, that no other information is available. It has not even been said that it happened. I do get it. Being a COPS WIFE, I KNOW how these things work, I know the dark side of life, MORE THAN YOU KNOW! I GET IT. I know things that you will never hear of. But this......this is not a story. This should have never been in the paper. This tells you nothing. This was nothing more than a sensationalist headline meant to incite comments as it has. There is no info. Heck this could have happened ANYWHERE and they just happened to go to Fisher Titus Hospital and Norwalk PD responded. There may never be a follow up story. The media thinks they are entitled to everything as soon as it happens, this is how false information travels. It is worse than teenage gossip.

if you really are a "COPS WIFE" like you claim, then I have just lost a little respect for the pride that I had in the Norwalk Police Dept. (And I am assuming you are a Norwalk Cops Wife)

You, of all people, and your Cop husband, should understand that a matter like this needs to be put in the paper, regardless if the "names are in the paper" or not... you said clearly in your very first blog that this was not a story and that they will never put their names in the paper???? I am taking from that, that since the gossip mongers will not be fed, why waste taxpayers time and money??? is that correct??? why else would you consider tracking down child molesters and child molester victims who all happen to be minors a waste of time???????Please Lady... Please explain this to us... if you were just Jane Doe it would not be so insulting, I would think that it must be 5"clock somewhere for you, but if you are a COPS WIFE you should actually "get it" and if you don't than I tend to think that your husband "doesn't" and if he doesn't then maybe many others on the force don't either... that saddens me... deeply

Nope, not a Norwalk cop. Sorry to burst your bubble.
My comment that "this was not a story" meant that this little blurp did NOT make a story. There was NO information contained in it. NO names, no information, no mention of where it might have happened. Like I stated, this might not have even happened IN Norwalk. The parents might have just brought the child to Fisher Titus Hospital and NPD was the first to respond. How do you know where it even happened, it was not in the "story" published, NOONE is saved/safe/or protected from this story. They are MINORS their names will NOT be published. No, "USUALLY" they do not publish minors names. Especially in sex crimes. I did in NO way mention or imply that the police or investigators not do their job. DID I??? NO I said that this "article" was not a story. There was NO information in it. You know nothing of me or my husband or where we live or work. But it is NOT Norwalk or Huron County. I am indeed a Cops Wife. I know they are investigating a crime between MINORS. I know that NAMES will NOT be released (should not at least). I was making more of a comment on the MEDIAs job than the police involvement.

Thank God that you are Not a Norwalk Cops wife.. I had really lost some respect for our Police force by your cold hearted posts. It seems like you think that to be a story of any value, a "sexual molestation" case such as this, needs to have names named, and locations, named, and that is where I think you are completely wrong.

Do you know any of the statistics on child abuse?? Do you know how many times a "victim" keeps quiet about their abuse???"as a "Cops Wife" I would hope that you would be aware of that, and aware of the world around you, and realize that it is a good idea to remind parents and siblings, that the predators are out there everywhere.. in this community, your community, my community, everywhere, so maybe it is a Blessing Not to know where this happened, so that you can not say ,"well that happened 25 miles from here, we are safe here" but instead realize that it could be here and there and everywhere and this could be a wake-up call to everyone to remind people to keep an eye on their children and LISTEN to what they tell you...

Personally, I wasn't looking for anything. Just questioning why stories are still posted on here without any proof that a crime took place. Speculation at best.

Sad, to say, other people have to go on a four paragraph diatribe assuming why other people post on here, effectively using many words to say absolutely "NOTHING".

;] ;]
