This edit[edit]

Rpeh has reverted this edit and I must say I agree. A tor node entered it and looking at the info it seems there was a dispute about on WP plus I can't find any proper references for the claim online. I say keep the allegation off the page. AceThe Rep Grows Bigger 07:15, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

I was just about to post an explanation...
To answer the same BoN who created the section below this one, I did research the post and only found it on blogs and social media. It's entirely possible that the accusations have merit, but such serious allegations need significantly more evidence. The fact that it was posted through a TOR node doesn't do much for my confidence on this. I agree with Ace that this should stay off - at least for the moment. rpeh •TCE 07:20, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

Research this topic for yourself[edit]

His daughters writings speak for themselves - Valerie's account, Gale's account. Keith Henson has had ample opportunity to publicly deny this allegations and yet he has failed to do so. If they aren't true, why doesn't he deny them? (talk) 07:15, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

Because you don't dignify that kinda shit with any sort of response? --Revolverman (talk) 07:35, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
Where is the charge sheet? Police reports? Revolverman is right. Until such a time as the man is convicted of a crime he is considered innocent. AceThe Rep Grows Bigger 07:49, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
So his own daughter (Gale Henson) is willing to publicly speak out that her father molested her, and you think her claims should be ignored because there are no police reports? Most cases of sexual abuse of children go unprosecuted, don't you know? So victims should be silenced? (talk) 11:54, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
victims should come out. and they should go to the cops. if he is, as they claim, a serial rapist, then he's doing it now. The fact that they are not going to the cops makes me fear this is more about slandering him than protecting kids. If they were trying to protect themselves, they'd have kept quiet. Everyone seems to be agreeing... until or unless they make legitimate charges with some agency, it's just a blog. And by the way, no one, wikipedia or us is worried about liable. it is not a crime to report that his daughters made a claim of... so you are really grasping at straws.--Green mowse.pngGodotStop the damn screeds! 21:05, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
