Chasing the Freidmans

Last night i watched in disbelief a dvd that i had hired. I recognised the synopsis of the story as i was certain i had seen part of it on "Dateline". As i watched, the story jogged no real memory for me but i was rivited to my sofa.....this story was factual and downright spooky.
It was about a man named Arnold Freidman and his family.......3 sons and a wife. The family itself was very dysfunctional, the wife treaed and spoken to like shit by her husband ( rock spider) and 3 sons ( one also a rock spider.....other one i am diagnosing as an alleged psychopath..and the other middle boy who rarely spoke).
It came out that the cops busted the door in to their home after 40 charges of indecent dealing and child porn were filed against the father..........this took the cops months to establish via covert operations. It then came out that the younger son was doing disgusting things to little boys too. Well to cut a long story short, this dvd was full of footage shot by the 3 sons and father from beginning to end. It includes police footage..lawyers interviews the trials etc. It is just amazing..........to watch this family supporting their father and brother.....every single one of them in denial. It came out that the father when in his early teens used to have sex with his own brother, who now can't remember it happening and doesn't care if it did either, he is in full support of his brother and family. The mother, whilst not all there in the head and admits it, is the only one horrified by it all and is the one treated like a criminal...............it just blew me away.

Hammer~ dragged yourself away from that giant tv huh! A rock spider is a term used to describe pedophiles.
