Letter to Santa ends in arrest of Child Molester

Recommended Posts

Mrs. Patti Claus

Hey all:

While reading the news on line with the on Yahoo, I found the following article - found it in a Chinese paper of all places :

http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/world/2008-12...ent_7313425.htm

In short, a young girl wrote a letter to Santa asking that he stop a male relative from touching her. The letter wound up with the school counselors and the man was arrested. As far as I am concerned, this is good news for Santa and the little girl, bad news for the guy touching her.

Thank you. I saw that article too but noted it was an ASSOCIATED PRESS article and we were not to print AP items. I was looking for it in another source. It is worthy having here and for all to know.

Thanks - thought that I had read everything - dug a little bit and found it posted elsewhere with no mention of the AP - also found another article and did the same thing - dig a little and uncover a lot!

I too am Glad her letter was read instead of tossed. To bad we can not arrange the letters to Claus be divided among the Santas in each area to read and respond if they choose.

In many cases and especially here, the local post office has people who read and answer letters sent to Santa.

I would think it a crime if the reader of a letter did not report any abuse found in the letter, but I would think that meeting with post officials to let them know you are willing to help may ease some concern. Just one method that is already established and food for thought. There is no larger organization across the country, yours or mine.

There needs to be a national organization dedicated to reading and dealing with childrens Christmas requests, Santa Edison is not the only one who has concidered it , i heard about the little girl yesterday and it made my day that Santa lowered the boom on that creep.

Santa defends Children as did Nicholas 1700 years ago - it is an importaint task, long may the right men rise to the occaision.

    • If You Have the Post Christmas Blues You’re Doing Christmas Wrong
      The post-Christmas blues are a very real thing. Once the date of December 25th has passed the specter of December 26th is an ominous marker to many. It sits there on the calendar like the Ghost of Christmas Yet-to-Come. Silent and foreboding, the very image of the hooded Angel of Death it seems to be. And why not?

      Just about anywhere you look Americans are tossing trees to the curb, ripping down lights from rooftops and radio stations are flipping back to everyday music. What took months to build gets deconstructed in a matter of a couple of days.

    • Auld Lang Syne
      Every New Year’s Eve at the stroke of midnight, millions around the world traditionally gather together to sing the same song, “Auld Lang Syne”. As revilers mumble though the song’s versus, it often brings many of them to tears – regardless of the fact that most don’t know or even understand the lyrics. Confusion over the song’s lyrics is almost as much of a tradition as the song itself. Of course that rarely stops anyone from joining in.

    • Merry Christmas, My Friend
      Every year around this time, some variation of this poem is circulated online. The poem is generally credited to “a soldier stationed in Okinawa” or more recently since September 11, 2001, “a Marine stationed in Afghanistan”.

      However, the poem’s true author is Lance Corporal James M. Schmidt.

      Originally entitled, “Merry Christmas, My Friend”, Corporal Schmidt wrote the poem in 1986 while serving as Battalion Counter Sniper at the Marine Barracks 8th & I, in Washington, D.C.

      That day the poem was placed in the Marine Corps Gazette and distributed worldwide. Schmidt’s poem was later published in Leatherneck (Magazine of the Marines) in December 1991.

      Is it time to start calling out Bad Santas?

      Do you think we should start calling out those in our community whose actions or behavior is unbecoming of Santa Claus or Mrs. Claus?

      Backlash Building Against The Man Who Invented Christmas

      EXCERPT:

      There is a new Christmas movie headed to theaters this Christmas about Charles Dickens about his creation of A Christmas Carol and Christmas purists hate it. Already.

      The film has a stellar cast that features the dreamy-eyed Dan Stevens as Dickens and the legendary Christopher Plummer as Scrooge. Here is the trailer:

      “This is a very presumptuous film,” said Christmas fan and would-be film critic, Arnold Yates, via MSN. “Charles Dickens was great but he certainly didn’t invent Christmas. Bah Humbug!”

      That sentiment is growing online as the preview makes the rounds.

    • Seeking recognition
      Seeking recognition is a downward path for a legend who performs his tasks in the veil of night.

      Recently, a fellow portrayer of Santa posted an image on Facebook that they constructed to look like a magazine cover with him on it and several story snips like many publications have on their covers.  You may have seen it if they are your friend on Facebook.  It looks okay.  The composition is good, but the rendering when uploading it to Facebook became distorted it and it is quite pixelated when you look at it from a development standpoint.

    • Not Everyone Can Be Santa!
      Yes, I said it and it is not meant to hurt anyone’s feelings. I do view many Facebook sites along with websites and posted photos. Frankly, many of these postings should have never been put on public display.

    • Infringement? Make up your own mind.
      In the last couple of days, on several different social media and bidding sites, an item has been offered for sale that in my opinion is cause for suspicion.  I would like to bring that product to your attention.

      There is some disagreement over whether or not it is an infringement or not.  I believe it is close enough to be considered as an infringement, but that is not the only the reason behind my post.

    • Why Bass Pro Shops’ longtime Santa won’t be back this Christmas
      Why Bass Pro Shops’ longtime Santa won’t be back this Christmas

      Christmas is going to be a little different this year for families whose traditions include visiting Santa at Bass Pro Shops. Paul Davis, who spent the last nine years as the Bass Pro Santa in Ashland, will not be there anymore.
