Why doesn't media disclose gender of Kissner abuse victims?

Postby Bill Whatcott » Sun Jan 08, 2017 10:04 pm


I will be willing to bet $100.00 the alleged sexual abuse committed by Kingsville's (suspended with pay) Fire Chief Bob Kissner is homosexual in nature. While not a definitive reason to conclude someone is a perv, being a member of the United Church of Canada helps. Kissner is a long time member of the United Church of Canada and a chior director at Epworth United Church. The United Church of Canada has a long and sordid history of pushing the LGBT agenda.

The second and perhaps most compelling reason for my suspicion is I have combed multiple media stories concerning these crimes alleged to be commited by Kissner from CBC, National Post, London Free Press, Toronto Sun, Windsor Star, Blackburn News (a local publication). While all of the stories cover the charges against Kissner, not one of them mentions the gender of the victims. The ommission by every media outlet that has covered the story seems so blatant it cries for no other conclusion.

Charges pile up against Ontario fire chief after three more alleged victims accuse him of underage sex acts

Kingsville, Ont., fire chief Bob Kissner — already accused of sex offences involving a minor — is facing additional charges involving three more underage victims, say OPP.

Essex County OPP announced on Friday that as a result of the investigation that began in December, six additional charges have been laid against Kissner: three counts of sexual assault, two counts of sexual exploitation, and one count of sexual interference.

The new charges stem from three more alleged victims who have spoken with police.

The two charges of sexual exploitation indicate that two of the alleged victims were 16 or 17 at the time of the offences.

The charge of sexual interference indicates one of the alleged victims was under 16 at the time of the offence.

OPP said Kissner appeared in a Windsor court on Jan. 5 to be formally processed on the latest charges.

Kissner has been released on his own recognizance on a promise to appear in court at a later date.
Before Friday’s revelations, Kissner was already facing two sexual assault charges and two sexual exploitation charges involving a minor.

Provincial police arrested Kissner on Dec. 10 after being contacted earlier that day about the alleged victim — who is 16 or 17 years old.

The incidents with that victim allegedly took place on Dec. 6 and 8.

Kissner, 60, has had leadership roles with the Kingsville and Leamington fire departments for more than 30 years. He has been an organist and choir director for Epworth United Church since 1990.

Since Kissner’s arrest on Dec. 10, he has been relieved of his duties for the Town of Kingsville. Deputy fire chief Jeff Dean has been appointed as acting fire chief for the municipality.

Mayor Nelson Santos has said the town will be conducting its own investigation into the situation.

According to the Criminal Code of Canada, sexual assault carries a maximum penalty of 10 years imprisonment when treated as an indictable offence.

The penalty is harsher if the victim is under 16 — with a maximum of 14 years in prison and a minimum of one year.

A charge of sexual interference applies when the victim is under 16 years old and there is touching for a sexual purpose, whether direct or indirect.

A charge of sexual exploitation applies when the offender is in a position of trust or authority and the victim is a “young person” — defined as someone 16 or 17 years old. The offence can involve sexual touching or an invitation to sexual touching.

Sexual interference and sexual exploitation both carry maximum penalties of 14 years imprisonment and a minimum penalty of one year imprisonment, when treated as indictable offences.
