A couple of weeks ago my daughter(age 7) and my wife were listening to Dr. Laura on the radio in the car. The subject was “Megan’s Law” and my daughter asked my wife what that meant. My wife explained that it involved adults who touched little kids, ect. My daughter turned pale, and my wife knew something was wrong. My wife told my daughter that she could always tell us if something happened to her. It turns out that about a month and a half ago my daughter was coming up the stairs to our apartment after riding her bike around the apartment complex. She is tiny and can’t bring the bike up herself, so she parks it under the stairs and comes up to ask my wife or I to bring it up for her. Anyway, as she was coming up the stairs there was a 18 year old piece of shit sitting in the middle of the stairs. She said,“Excuse me, I have to go upstairs,” The guy said, “Give me a hug”, she said “no”, the guy said “give me a hug”, she said “no”, the guy then very adamantly said “GIVE ME A HUG”. She was scared and so she leaned forward to hug him. As he was sitting on the stairs she had to spread her legs and straddle the guy to lean forward and hug him. WHen she did the motherfucker reached out and grabbed her between the legs. She recoiled and he said"get out of here". She came upstairs and opened the door and saw me on the couch watching tv and asked if i would bring up her bike for her. She looked strange, but at the time I just thought it was because I had been asleep when she went downstairs and she was expecting my wife to be there. Now i realize she was hoping my wife was there. I’m sure had my wife been there she would have told her what happened right then.
Anyway, I went to get the bike and the guy had already gone into his grandmother’s apartment which is underneath and diagonal to mine. Jesus, I could go one for at least another hour. to summarize, we pressed charges, he is out on bail, and i’m going crazy. he is staying across town with his mother. my wife and family tell me that i shouldn’t do anything. my wife is still in school, so i support the family completely. also, i worry about having to tell my daughter that this bastard isn’t going to jail because daddy did something stupid. i again apologize for my errors and for taking up so much space. my question is “what does it mean to take care of your family?” i want ot kill. i want my family fed.
