What did you and the law deem abuse back in the 80's? I know what it is now, and I donít see it. Under aged sex, adult with child, spanking with objects other then hand, that type of stuff etc. etc. etc. Today, putting someone in a closet, locking them up is torture. When I went to "system" school, there was the threat of the cane. I never got it, but some of my friends did. None of us thought that was abuse. That is how life was, and I think a lot of us SGA's don't really understand that. It's like we'll never know what war is like till we experience it. It's nothing like TV or a computer game. All we can say is that we either hate it or love it.
