In shock  
I don't even know what to say. My local paper just posted an article about an old high school friend of mine, who has apparently been arrested on 25 counts of "encouraging child abuse" for having child porn on his computer or something. I knew this guy. We were friends. I myself am a survivor of childhood sexual abuse. Sometimes I have a radar for these things. Like, I always got this horrible feeling around one of my best friend's fathers when I was in my 20's. When it finally came out that someone had been abusing her for years, I knew before I was told that it had been her father. I just knew.

In this case, I am just floored. Maybe he is an entirely different person 20 years later, but I just am in so much shock. I don't know what to say.

Woah! That's just...

I'm with you I don't know what I'd feel. Wow.

Maybe he's changed, and deserves to be arrested. Or maybe he's too naive, and trusted the wrong person with the use of his computer, or bought a used computer from the wrong person, or something like that.

Either way, how terrible to hear this.
