R. Kelly…what should have happened

Well, I am feeling a bit rested now.  Got a little sleep…woke up at about 12 noon.  My eyes were still a bit blurry so I couldn’t see much.  So, I decided to turn on the Word Channel which streams over the net…and I happened to catch Rev. Jamal Byant delivering his Father’s Day Sermon.  Which was entitled something about R. Kelly.

I have to admit Rev. Byant made some very poignant points concerning R. Kelly, his trial and its outcome of which you can see and hear over his website.  He lead his sermon off by stating facts on Kelly’s musical history, his awards, musical talents and past sexual problems even prior to his last visit into the courthouse. 

Pedophile…

I didn’t know that Kelly was a 38 or 39 year old man, making him nearly 40 years of age.  Nor had I known that there were other instances where he had allegedly engaged in having  sex with 2 other under age girls, whom he later paid off to keep from facing prosecution.

And then there was, of course, that other highly known incident involving Kelly where he crossed over onto foreign soil to marry a very young and under aged Aaliyah whom he had been sexually involved with…and married to avoid prosecution, of which the marriage was later annulled.  And no charges were ever brought against him.  So, began his long line of known acts as  a sexual predator of young children.

Having not seen the video of Kelly and the young girl whom the trial centered around during his most recent legal woes concerning his inability to keep his hands off under aged extremely young young girls…having not seen that video while it was floating around, after all, why would I want to see such garbage?  But it was Kelly’s delight in remembering those very explicit encounters via video typing them…and playing them over and over for some type of sick sexual self-gratification that landed him in hot water this time around and facing prison.  This homemade video was the primary source of evidence in the case.  But having not seen that tape…near the end of the trial I became curious.  So, I googled it and went up on youtube…and though the sequence on youtube is exceedingly brief…only seconds long…there was no doubt in my mind that it was R. Kelly.

A point which Rev. Bryant brought out in his sermon…that the jurors agreed that it was Kelly in the tape…but get this…but they were not sure who the young girl was.  So, therefore they decided that based on that they could not convict Kelly. 

Now…let me just count to 10 very slowly before I go any further.

1…2…3…4…5…6…7…8…9…….10.

Who cares who the girl was!  

In the few seconds of that tape on youtube…the girl entered into the frame before the tape ends.  And clearly she was somebody’s baby girl.  There was no doubt that that child was exceedingly young…very much under age.  She looked as if she could have been 12…maybe under but certainly not of age.  She was clearly a young child.

I could care less if the girl who it was said to have allegedly been in the tape did not want to get involved in the case…and I can understand why.   And what did it matter…she was under age…and very much so.  Therefore, R.Kelly had committed a crime by engaging in sexual intercourse with an under age child…and he should have been found unequivocally… guilty   

Like the two little girls before her or neither after her…she too may have very well been paid off.  But still the tape showed R. Kelly, who shot the footage himself, engaging in sexual acts with a minor.  That is what the case was about…not who was she?  Just that the other party in the tape was under age…and she was.  Very much so.

There was no question as to who the male party in that tape was.  R. Kelly front and center…and I didn’t have to squint to be able to tell it was him on the tape adjusting the video camera as he prepared and beckoned the little girl towards him as he gyrates himself waiting on her to come between his legs.

There was clearly no way that R. Kelly should have walked away from that courthouse a free man.  But the fact that his lawyers were able to keep the case out of court for 6 years spoke volumes as to its possible outcome.  The further removed a case is in terms of its actual trial date…the more detached and removed people become from the crime…and it becomes easier to come out of the trial with a favorable verdict for the defendant.

R. Kelly is unquestionably a pedophile.  He is an adult who is sexually attracted to children.  And that is just plain sick. 

To corrupt and to steal little girls and/or little boys on anybody’s part, man or woman, is evil. 

Everyday children everywhere are being violated and their feeling of self-worth riped from them.

Men from this country and elsewhere fly abroad to indulge in sex with under aged children in many undeveloped countries where children are sold openly as sex slaves and prostitutes.  Their young lives crushed.

Just last week in this country the FBI organized a sting operation called “Operation Cross Country”  which ended in the rescue of some 21 children who had been forced into sexual slavery as prostitutes, both young boys and girls.  Some 356 people were arrested for engaging in the sexual trafficking of minors.  From Sacramento to Atlanta, and points east and west, a total of 16 cities were involved in this sting operation.  

“Operation Cross Country” was a 5 day nationwide manhunt for criminals who pose as living and breathing humans but who are actually low life animals who make a living off the backs of under aged children by selling them to people as sexual objects.  These people were operating right here in this country out of truck stops and selling children over the internet.

Not all children who are forced into prostitution are runaways…and even if some are runaways should they be used in such a way? 

Many of these kids are kidnapped and usually go listed as missing.  They are drugged up and fed alcohol so that they barely know their own names.  And they find themselves condemned to hell right here on earth where they become invisible.

I can say all of that because I watched an expose’ on television once…only it was about young women in this country who had been rescued from the same thing…pretty young college girls…high school teens…etc.

There is a sickness in the land…and it is vile.  It has no boundaries…or limits. 

Recently I read an old Vibe article that was on the DeBarge’s, a back in the day singing group of highly handsome brothers and their sister.   The story was so sickening to me that I had to stop reading it and put it down.  To think that they had been sexually abused throughout years by their own father…all of them and there were 10 of them was more than I could bare to continue reading. 

Home is suppose to be your haven from the ills of the world and predators.  Not the place where your predators can take you at will. 

Another story that showed up recently was that story of the young…well, she is not young anymore…as her father held her hostage in a dug out crawl space in his basement fathering 7 or 8 kids with her…with the oldest one being 19.  She and her children had been locked in that tiny little crawl space for 24 years…and her children had never seen daylight.  This was another story that I had to set aside and just stop reading anything further on it.

These things turn my stomach.  They are an outrage and whenever these people are located that prepetrate these kinds of crimes they should never be allowed to walk away from their acts.  In fact, new laws, tougher laws need to be written and drafted into effect to deal with all the evils that are over running the land.  The old laws are just not stiff enough…because if they were then we should be seeing less of these kinds of crimes instead of more. 

Many of these people get very little time…when in fact they should be locked away forever.

I will never forget the show I watched on Oprah once.  A 65 year old janitor in a housing complex in Chicago, an ex-sexual offender and predator.  He had been released from prison and was working in the project…which of course projects are full of children.  He grab a young very attractive girl and drove her to some isolated area where this 65 year old senior sexually assualted her, drew acid upon her and shoved her into a street drainage hole, leaving her for dead.  Somehow the girl survived but she was grossly disfigured.  What a hideous crime.

The man was said to be grandfatherly in nature…but he had a deep dark secret…like R. Kelly.  He liked little girls.

No amount of stardom or celebrity-dom should ever play a factor in the exercising the law…and certainly money should never be allowed to be used as force to silence people.  The law is for the lawless…not for some but all who would break it…including R. Kelly.

One note on my gay pride blog…that was not to say that I in any way condone homosexuality.  No, not in any way.  However…

I have a vast amount of knowledge on the matter…and it comes from experience, relationships, family and friends.

To God be the glory…   Have a wonderful day.  I think I am going to now work on my website that I would like to have up before we leave out of here for Detroit on Tuesday.  I might have to pull another all nighter to do it.  But right now…I’m thinking about getting some more sleep…so, I guess the all nighter tonight is out.  Besides it’s 4:33 in the AM right now and I would to be able to see through some not so blurry eyes in the latter part of this morning.  

Plus I am being bombarded by a bunch of hot-flashes.  I told my son that I was burning up…and he told me…

“Ma, it’s not hot.”

So, there you have it…from a very hot ol’ me.    God bless…  ©2008
