I don’t usually bring things up of this nature but this really has me pretty upset. Over the last several months there have been some really strange and evil things that have been happening all in the Tampa Bay area that makes me think people have gone crazy and lost their minds.
Here is the short list:
Stephanie Ragusa charged with five counts of lewd and lascivious battery on a 14 year old boy. She met the boy as a teacher at a middle school in Tampa Bay. He was a student and she was a teacher.
In addition to this short list are several other teachers who have done similar things and also over the last several weeks two stories about two girls 12 and 14 who were dancing at local strip clubs. One of them was taken there by her aunt who did it for a cut of the profit. How was she found out? The girl’s mother went to the club and happened to notice her daughter was one of the dancers! Have we lost our minds?
These are not merely “inappropriate relationships.” These kind of things are evil and can mess up the lives of these children for the rest of their lives. We have to talk more about personal responsibility, integrity, and give some share of the blame to the media who continues to push the envelop even though it is clear that it is making our society deteriorate. If anyone deserves to be charged with “contributing to the delinquency of a minor” it is the entertainment media.
