On the local news today I saw a story about a 3 and a half-year old girl who was raped in the restroom of a nearby Wal-Mart. The reporter stated that the little girl was in the toy section of the store playing with her 7 year-old brother. She apparently told her brother she had to use the restroom and a man (stranger) offered to take her. They went into the restroom and the perpetrator masturbated and then raped the little girl. He was not caught at the store, but was arrested trying to lure another child into the restroom at another Wal-Mart. This horrible incident has several red flags….. First of all, where in the hell were the children’s parents or guardians??? Why would two little kids be allowed to play unsupervised? Why would a seven year-old not know better than to not allow his sister to go off with a total stranger? Why can Wal-Mart catch someone stealing toothpaste on aisle two, but not see who entered the women’s restroom with a small child???? How is it that no one else entered the restroom or saw what happened and reported it? On all levels, this situation was absolutely ridiculous and should have never happened. I don’t have children but there is NO WAY I would allow them to be unsupervised in public if I did. The girl was on her way out of the store with her mother after she was found by a wal-mart employee and then told her mom what happened. Damn Shame!
