Do "Good People" Ever Molest Kids, as Russell Pearce Contends?

Ousted Senate President Russell Pearce is a believer in the old adage that "good people do stupid things sometimes."

The problem is, Pearce was talking about Chris Simcox being the "good people," and allegedly molesting multiple children being the "stupid things."

Pearce made the comment to 3TV's Dennis Welch, while Pearce talked about his associations with Simcox, and offered to "be a Second Amendment user" if someone molested his kids or grandkids -- even if it was one of the "good" guys, apparently.

Do you think that "good people" would ever molest kids, as Pearce contends? Or, do "good people" usually avoid molesting kids, even when they're doing "stupid things?"

I wonder if Pearce would feel different about this if it was his granddaughter that was molested?  More than likely he would be out for blood.  

In addition, what the hell does he know about "good people"?  Look at his "friends" -- white supremacists who murder their families, Sheriffs, rapists.  Yeah great friends, good people.

Why does ANY self respecting new agency give Pearce the time of day any more?

If you want a shock, look at the poll. Apparently one person in 12--a little more than 8 percent--believes that you can diddle a child and still be a good person.

Good people NEVER would molest a child. Also, Molesting a child is not stupid, it is SICK. So old fathead Russell Pearce is WRONG twice. Silly old fucker should just keep his mouth shut.

WOW. Talk about being disconnected from reality. He has serious perception issues and to think that he was an elected official who set public policy. What were the voters thinking?

Good people get help if the urge strikes them to even THINK of molesting children. Bad, mentally ill sicko's allow themselves to follow through with those thoughts.

Twice-disgraced, corrupt, narcissistic and mentally sick Pearce needs to be outraged that an alleged supporter of his is alleged to have committed child molestation, one of the most heinous acts I've ever had the displeasure to read and voice my opinion about, with one of the victims being his own daughter.

Pearce is nothing but a snake. Always has been, always will be. (Sorry if I insulted any snakes during the writing of this comment.)

In rusty pearce'z world..."good People" also neglect to investigate sex crimes, "good people" murder girlfriends who support their sorry a$$es and include others (including a baby) in their killing spree... the only pearce that refused to do what other "good people" do, got shot in the face by his "good people" father...

Sick, mentally-ill, depraved people molest kids.  Its that simple.  If these are "good people" in Pearce's mind, so be it.  The rest of civilized society clearly feels otherwise.

I wonder, given this statement by Pearce, if he really wants others to see him in the light he is casting on Simcox.  I wonder if he sees himself as a good person who has done "stupid things."

Delusional racist.

If good people do stupid things do they do them repeatedly?

Just as he was concerning the massacre in Aurora, CO, he's completely tone-deaf on this subject. Get a clue, Russ.

@danzigsdaddy Let's not forget the legal court papers where Pearce's wife swore he physically abused her.
