Over the years as a uniformed volunteer in law enforcement, I have witnessed various levels of crime and the chilling effects of criminal behavior on innocent victims.
Among the crimes I have witnessed, nothing can compare with the depravity of abuse against and neglect of little children.
When I heard the story of Roger Stephens allegedly assaulting a two-year old girl in a Wal-Mart store in Stone Mountain, Georgia, I could not help but wish I could have been there to restrain him prior to his arrest.
If that had been my daughter he attacked, I can honestly say I would feel no compunction for the manner in which I would stop the abuse and accompanying methods to restrain Mr. Stephens.
My mind soon turned to a discussion recorded in Luke 17:1–2, where Jesus spoke to his disciples about offences against children:
1 Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come!
