Everyday thousands of children are being sexually abused. You can stop the abuse of at least one child by simply praying. You can possibly stop the abuse of thousands of children by forwarding the link in First Time Visitor? by email, Twitter or Facebook to every Christian you know. Save a child or lots of children!!!! Do Something, please!

3:15 PM prayer in brief:
Pray for God to stop 1 child from being molested today.
Pray for God to stop 1 child molestation happening now.
Pray for God to rescue 1 child from sexual slavery.
Pray for God to save 1 girl from genital circumcision.
Pray for God to stop 1 girl from becoming a child-bride.
If you have the faith pray for 100 children rather than one.
Give Thanks. There is more to this prayer here

Cop Who Investigates Child Abuse is Himself Charged with Child Sex Offences

London - Child sex abuse charges have been brought against a detective in the Metropolitan Police Child Abuse Investigation Team.

Detective Constable Chris Maitland, 40, faces 14 charges, some of which relate to making indecent images of a child.

He will appear in Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Friday on two charges of sexual touching of a girl under the age of 13, five of making an indecent image of a child and an additional seven of making an indecent image of a child.

Maitland was remanded in custody in November on suspicion of possession and distribution of indecent images of children

He was released on bail, but arrested again on Tuesday on suspicion of sexual touching.
He has been suspended from his post.

So, assuming he is guilty, the question is, was he a pedophile before he joined the Child Abuse Investigative Team, or did he become one as a result of his work? I don't doubt that this is a possible hazard of the job of investigating pedophiles. Police volunteering for this kind of work need to be tested for an attraction to prepubescent children.
