Jim Bob Duggar (*)
Good thing he waited until the statute of limitation was up before bothering to mention it to anyone.
(*) Where else but the South (Arkansas) would you find someone named “Jim Bob”?
All the more reason to encourage the South to give us a do-over on that secession thing.May 27, 2015 at 2:38 pm #11056missing_kskdParticipant

From a media standpoint, TLC is now trying to decide if they should continue the popular reality show without the culprit, or cancel it. My instincts tell me they are looking at this as a giant publicity tool, and will bring it back without the son. And they WILL make a big deal of it.

That’s what the Internet is for. Just ditch ’em. Watch good stuff, or do something else.
Probably you are right on about it Paul.May 28, 2015 at 12:55 am #11062skepticalParticipant
Michelle Duggar is the culprit. You’re talking of her, correct? Josh was a minor.May 28, 2015 at 1:30 am #11064BrianlParticipant
When Jim Bob and Michelle found out that their son is a sexual predator, they did not report him to the police as many of the family’s defenders are saying. They first approached church elders who recommended counseling and hard labor — not legal action. As stated above, the counseling provided by their church is nothing more than victim-blaming nonsense. They also approached a family friend who happened to be a police officer, off the record, and asked for his advice on the matter. This officer never filed a report, and was himself arrested on child pornography charges later.
Michelle later admitted Josh never did get any formal counseling, and instead spent the summer remodeling houses with a church friend as his punishment.
The accusations only made their way to police when producers at the Oprah show were tipped off by a family acquaintance. Producers immediately notified the Department of Human Services, who in turn contacted the local police department. Jim Bob refused to allow Josh to be interviewed by authorities. Since the three-year statute of limitations had run out, police were not able to charge him with anything — but you can read their report here, from which this information is gleaned.
There’s more in here. Michelle’s sister is a lesbian, and despite this, they staunchly push anti-LGBT legislation. Such a loving “Christian”, turning her back on her own sister.May 28, 2015 at 6:45 pm #11080BroadwayParticipant

Bob and Michelle Duggar covered up Josh’s crimes for 16 months.
Josh Duggar confessed to his father on three different occasions that he molested his then 5-year-old sister, according to a newly-released police report.
The incidents actually could have landed his parents in jail for allegedly covering up the crimes, but the statute of limitations ran out.
After the first confession, it still took Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar 16 months to notify authorities of the incident, a new police report said, adding that he committed at least seven acts of molestation against his sister.
Finally, after the third confession, Josh’s parents enrolled him in a treatment program, but they still did not notify authorities until at least 4 months after the last confession.June 3, 2015 at 3:46 pm #11270duxruleParticipant

What did you expect? If Fox wanted hard hitting questions. They should have used Shepard Smith. He’s the only one on Fox News that can ask the tough questions.June 4, 2015 at 1:31 pm #11312VitalogyParticipant
