There really isn’t much to say about this. I heard about this story a while back when listening to The Skeptics Guide to the Universe, podcast.
This guy Gene Morrill, decided he was going to claim that the reason he was a child molester is because he himself was molested by big foot when he was a child. Some have brought up that perhaps he was indeed molested by “big foot”,where as big foot has taken the place of maybe a family friend or someone that really did molest him growing up.Its not uncommon for people to disassociate themselves from traumatic experiences,especially as children,and claim that the offender was some mythical creature like the Boogie Man or Bigfoot. I however feel this is very unlikely in this case given the time of the revelation of supposed Big Foot abuse.
Personally I find this really to be a non story and just another example of how the news is really just part of the entertainment industry now as opposed to being an important vehicle to distribute important information to the public.I mean,they even asked some local Bigfoot hunter his opinion about it.Its of no significant importance to the general public either politically or socially, other than being a time filling fluff piece-any jerk off the street could have done this “story”.
