Crimes: Child Abuse, Pedophile

You’d think, if you are a decent human being, that any and all pedophiles should be reviled and ostracized. You’d think that all pedo pervs deserve to be vilified and shunned by the community at large. You’d especially think that child-raping pedophiles deserve the deepest depths of hell for eternity. So what the hell is the matter with the people of Dearborn, Missouri?

Darren Paden admittedly worked hard to disguise his true nature. He acted as junior deacon in his local church. He did charity work helping in foreign hospitals. He had been a member of the Air National Guard. He’d even been a volunteer firefighter. He did everything he could to appear to be an upstanding citizen.

Most importantly, rather than taking the risk of victimizing children in the community, Darren Paden actually adopted his victim — a little girl.

Darren Paden and his wife had a family of 7 children. I don’t know how many were adopted and how many were molested. What I do know, without a shadow of a doubt, is that the disgusting pedophile did molest one child — his adopted daughter. He began when she was 5 years old. He subjected her to his perverted fantasies. He made her watch pornography with him, and forced her into performing sex acts on him. He sodomized her, FFS!

Darren Paden convinced his little victim that the sexual abuse was their “little secret”. Maybe he made her think that she was super special, or maybe he scared her by threatening she’d lose her adoptive family if she told. Maybe he convinced her that all daddies and daughters share those private, physical acts. I don’t know if it was love, fear or ignorance that kept her quiet. Probably it was all three.

It wasn’t until she’d been sexually abused for almost a decade that the victim came forward and told authorities. It happened after a school presentation that discussed the signs of abuse. The girl finally understood that what had transpired with her father was irrefutably wrong and a crime.

So how do I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that Darren Paden molested his adopted daughter for almost a decade? I know because he admitted it! In 2013, questioning by police led to Darren Paden’s confession that he’d molested the girl once or twice a month from 2001 to 2009.

Incredibly, despite the fact that Darren Paden confessed to detectives, he refused for more than 2 years to plead guilty in court. During that time, many people in Dearborn wouldn’t believe that what he confessed to was true. They preferred to believe that the victim was lying, and they shunned her.

The victim, now a young woman, had a horrible time dealing with the sexual abuse, and was struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts. To have her own family members and community unjustly ostracize and vilify her must have magnified the anguish and heartache she’d been made to endure.

Darren Paden in courtIn August 2015, Darren Paden pled guilty in court to abusing his adoptive daughter 300 times over the course of years.

“While this defendant admitted to his horrible crimes the day he was arrested, he continually delayed his day of reckoning,” said Prosecuting Attorney Eric Zahnd. “Sadly, during that time, many in the community sided with him, compounding the trauma experienced by his victim. Now there can be no doubt, Darren Paden repeatedly committed monstrous acts against a young girl.”

The judge was bombarded with community leaders’ and church elders’ pleas for leniency. Five of them actually took to the witness stand to ask for a lenient sentence. It was to no avail.

On November 5, 2015, the judge sentenced Darren L. Paden, 52, to 50 years in prison on 2 counts of 1st-degree statutory sodomy. Yay! No leniency for him, because he doesn’t deserve any. The man has been exposed as a predatory pedophile. There should be no mercy for him.

Anthony PadenSo you’d think the story was over, right? I wish. But no. See, Darren Paden wasn’t the only person to be accused of sexually assaulting the girl. In 2013, his son, Anthony Paden, was also charged. He was accused of participating in the abuse with his father.

There will probably never be a judicial determination as to Anthony Paden’s guilt. The sexual abuse charges were dismissed after the victim felt she had to “avoid the ordeal of additional litigation”. I don’t blame her one iota. She’d been put through hell with the first trial, even with Darren Paden’s eventual guilty plea.

Interestingly, the case against Anthony Paden can be refiled at any point within 30 years of the victim turning 18 years old. I wonder if he can rest easy knowing that.

I wish the victim all the support and help she needs to overcome the trauma and to go on to live a happy, successful life.

I rejoice that the judge gave Darren L. Paden a good long sentence to think about what a worthless POS turdpile he is. I doubt he’ll see the light of day again.

I hope the people of Dearborn have learned that the face of evil can be deceptive. Darren Paden worked hard to appear above reproach, but even if he had only one victim he is still a depraved pedophile.

    THIS is why most abuse does not get reported. People don’t want to believe it (who would?) and they don’t want their cozy, safe (or so they think)lives disrupted. They don’t want the shame of everyone knowing what happened right under their nose and they didn’t have a clue. So yes, it is easier and better (for them) to vilify the victim. Bless her heart. If she should happen to stumble on this, honey just know that you did the right thing and there are a lot of folks out here that are SO proud of you!!

    I wish the poor victim all the best as well. She deserves a wonderful beautiful life. Burn in hell Pedos.

  3. DecentPeopleOnly says:

    It is Vile the Bury the Head in the Sand and be an Ostrich Attitude
    over Child Abuse

    Dearborn Missouri seems more like Demon Born in Failing to Properly Back the Victim

    The Sentence should of been the Death Penalty for Child Abuse but it is
    an Improvement upon the Paedophile Paradise of the UK with it’s Sickening
    Suspended ” Sentences “

  4. DecentPeopleOnly says:

    The Truth is what Matters and it is only Right and Proper that
    Paedophiles are Recognized as Paedophiles

    Creeps like Jimmy Savile would of been Not able to get away with so
    much had it been Recognized beforehand that he was an Evil Creep

  5. DecentPeopleOnly says:

    Degenerate Leftist Scum who want to ” Normalize ” Paedophilia are as
    much Scum as Child Abusers and Have NO Decency in them

    • Kaldric says:

      Yeah. Blame the left like a partisan piece of shit when you’re commenting on an article where religious right wingers literally DEFENDED a pedophile AFTER he confessed!

      Idiots like you always gaslight real problems by making shit up.
      Get real!

    • Deanna says:

      Wow why the hell would you assume they’re “leftist”. Seriously you sound crazy, like Alex Jones crazy.

  6. DecentPeopleOnly says:

    Any Degenerate that tries to claim that someone having a lower mental age makes Paedophilia ” Normal ” is an Accessory to Child Abuse

    Paedophilia is Nefarious and so is any Trivialization of it

    They are Sick Creeps

  7. DecentPeopleOnly says:

    Why would any Community seek to Defend a Paedophile ? How about Care about the Suffering of the Victim

    • Kaldric says:

      Because religion makes people empathic to peodphiles.
      Because religion teaches them a “good man” can’t also be a sexual predator.
      Open your fuckin eyes.

  8. Bengalpuss says:

    The community that vilified the victim should be ashamed. Long may this beast rot in jail.

  9. DecentPeopleOnly says:

    Indeed that community should be Ashamed of itself

    Care For the Victim Not the Paedophile

  10. DecentPeopleOnly says:

    It is a Good Thing Not to have an ” Open Mind ” For the Sake of it
    when it ” Opens ” the Way to Evil and Instead a Clear Mind which
    Distinguishes between Good and Evil is Better

  11. DecentPeopleOnly says:

    Any ” Newspapers ” Magazines or other Media Outlets which Seek to
    ” Normalise ” The Sickening Evil of Paedophilia are in Effect Accessories
    to Child Abuse by Failing to Oppose and should be Boycotted and where
    Possible Protested Against

    Right and Wrong Good and Evil NO Shades of Grey

  12. DecentPeopleOnly says:

    Paedophilia is Not a ” Human Right ” It is a Mutilation of Human Dignity
    and an Outrage of Evil against Human Decency

  13. DecentPeopleOnly says:

    Abuse of a Childs Innocence by a Teacher is Not a Love Affair it is a
    Breach of Trust and Atrocity against the Innocence of Childhood

    Not Only Should the Teacher be Sacked but it Warrants the Death Penalty
    as it is Child Abuse and A Female Paedophile of a Teacher is as Terrible
    as a Male Paedophile of a Teacher

    Teachers are in a Position of Teacher and should Not Violate this

  14. A says:

    Any Scumbag who tries to ” Normalize ” Paedophilia Trivializes it
    and is Nefarious

    There is Nothing ” Cool ” about Child Abuse it is Creepy and Contemptible

    Children Deserve the Right to a Childhood of Innocence without Sick
    Leftist Amoral Nihilist Creeps being Stooges of Paedophilia

  15. DecentPeopleOnly says:

    Right and Wrong Good and Evil Basis of a Moral Society

  16. DecentPeopleOnly says:

    Innocence of Children is Sacrosanct

    The Degenerate Left must Not be Allowed to ” Legalise ” Paedophilia

    Paedophilia Warrants the Death Penalty as Human Rights is Only For
    Decent People

  17. DecentPeopleOnly says:

    A 20 Month Suspended ” Sentence ” For Sexually Abusing a Child Girl of
    Under 8 Years of Age Condones Child Abuse and is Disgusting

    Equally a Child Rapist taking a ” Doesn’t Matter ” Approach to this is
    Disgusting as Well

    Child Abuse Warrants the Death Penalty Not Suspended ” Sentences “

  18. SydeeGirl says:

    I have seen so many sentences for abuse of a child, murder of child receive sentences of no more than 6 years, if you are the child’s MOTHER. I have also seen the male molester get sentences of 300+ years. I am not complaining about the 300 years, believe me! But what I don’t get, is the court’s giving the MOTHER, the person who bore these children, and then MURDERS them, get what amounts to a slap on the wrist. I find the birth parent MORE @#$(%$&)@#$ (I can’t find a word BAD enough to describe them). To put your child in a scalding bathtub and basically cook them to death; to kill you child so the FATHER can’t have custody; to shoot-up your child with heroin so you can watch them “spin out of control” and their little heart basically explodes!! So sad to think GOD would allow these things to happen…maybe their type of “karma” gets even with these sick, sickos as they are met in HELL. Right? Give me something to hold on to here, guys!!
