Officer Ryan’s perception of the situation at hand was one that led to an escalation. He pulled over Mr. and Mrs. Thayer though his partner warned him they did nothing wrong. His response was simply, “they were doing something.” Officer Ryan’s initial perception of Mrs. Thayer was incorrect, as he perceived her to be a white woman that was engaging in fellatio with a black man. Once Officer Ryan engaged in a conversation with Mr. Thayer and noticed how lightly he and his wife were taking the current situation, he became aggravated and asked Mr. Thayer to step out of the vehicle to perform a sobriety test. Once this incident occurred, Mrs. Thayer’s perception of Officer Ryan changed. She viewed him as a crooked and nefarious officer. As a result, the communication between Officer Ryan and Mrs. Thayer escalated as she became argumentative. Mrs. Thayer’s perception of Officer Ryan changed once again as he manipulated his “pat down.” Officer Ryan manipulated his “right” as an officer and as a result the communication between Mrs. Thayer and himself escalated. Furthermore, the communication between Officer Ryan and Mrs. Thayer escalated further when he stated that Mrs. Thayer had a “dirty mouth” and that Mr. Thayer would

Children have an unconditional trust for their parents the moment they are born. This trust is generalized to many adults; however, some seemingly trustworthy adults can be the most dangerous by taking advantage of a child’s innocence. Cruise (2004) states that most children know their perpetrator and feel comfortable in their presence. Breaking such a genuine trust causes lifelong detrimental consequences. Childhood sexual abuse has many definitions, but Collin-Vézina, Daigneault, and Hébert (2013) define it “as any sexual activity perpetrated against a minor by threat, force, intimidation, or manipulation” (p. 7). Despite the form of sexual abuse, children are not developmentally prepared physically or emotionally to see, hear or experience this type of act. Although adults view childhood sexual abuse as a clear violation of boundaries, children may not completely believe it is the perpetrators fault. Children can have a multitude of beliefs such as they deserve the abuse, the abuse it their fault, and that abuse is a way that the perpetrator shows love. Unfortunately, many children do not talk about the abuse, so parents and guardians need to be aware of the warning signs that sexual abuse is possibly occurring.

On television programs like, “To Catch a Predator,” when the curtains are drawn back, several of the child predators featured on the show stay to be interviewed. What most say can be shocking, as some try to rationalize their actions and others say they did not intend to do anything with the young child they believed they were in communication with in online chat rooms and messaging systems. Some send inappropriate pictures and make inappropriate comments to the usually thirteen to fourteen year old girls. When they are caught by the cameras, some change their stories and some are honest about their illegal endeavors.
I chose to discuss Geraldine’s case in regards to my personal reactions. Up until her case, I felt I handled the subject material well, and for whatever reason I discussed those cases without the strong empathetic response that Geraldine’s case gave me. As I considered why this case evoked such a strong reaction, I realized that Geraldine and I have similar backgrounds. Our stories are not identical, but there are enough similarities that the comfortable barriers (conscious or subconscious) that let me think something like this could never happen to me crumbled a bit. My parents have made major climbs on the socioeconomic ladder, mainly due to the efforts of my mother, much like Geraldine’s case. My parents also dated in high school and got
Many victims of child exploitation are runaway girls who were sexually abused as children. These connections may begin as online dating and later progressing into a real life sexual encounters. The child may be deceived into believing she’s in an exclusive, loving, trusting and caring relationship and later pimped into prostitution, pornography, and other forms of sexual behaviors. As you can clearly see, the initial involvement is similar to that of a sexual
