The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

Lisa Clark, Predator and Mother (again)

The Herald Sun refers to it as a "illegal love match", I'd dare to say it consists more of a predatory relationship, parasitic in nature. None the less, Lisa Clark, the child rapist, has given birth to the child of her victim.

Clark is now said to be suffering from "the trauma of having the child torn loose from her arms and possibly placed in foster care while she goes back to jail". As a mother, I can see how the thought of having a child taken from you is frightening- but then perhaps she should have thought her plan out a bit better.

Lisa Clark has a sexual relationship with a child, in fact a child who was her own children's friend. As if that wasn't bad enough, she became "with child" after being with this child. She married the 15 year old in an attempt to get out of going to jail- because child sexual abuse victims should be married to their abusers in her mind, evidently. After being released from jail, she broke her bond agreement by communicating with her victim and was taken back into custody. One has to begin to wonder if this woman has thought any of her actions through.

Lisa claims to "love" her victim, but in order to believe that we must be willing to look at the basic definition of love. Nothing she has done up to this moment has been to benefit this boy, only herself. She has taken a child with a drug problem, and encouraged him to attempt to under mind the law. Although she claims she has nothing to do with his recent adolescent "running away" stunt- it's a little late in the game for us to start trusting her.

I wonder when talk show hosts like Tyra Banks will begin having male child rapist on their shows. I'm thinking they could round up a whole group and have a "Child Bride Special Edition", I'm sure it would be the talk of the TV world. It never fails to amaze me that had Lisa been a man, and the victim a girl, so many would undoubtedly see this completely different. Instead, our news media appeals to Lisa's side- condoning her actions. Tyra Banks wanted her on the show, to "tell her side". Excuse me? Did anyone realize that "her side" is that she should be above the law and allowed to have sexual contact with a minor?

Now, I am completely off the subject. The real point to this post was that Lisa had given birth- to a boy. She's reported as being excited beyond belief, as this allows for the possibility of molesting one of his friends in 15 or so years.
