Is Dr. Earl B. Bradley, The New Name Of Evil, Too Gruesome For Tabloids?

bradleyNews is breaking today about a Delaware pediatrician who is alleged to have sexually abused well over 100 potential victims. Last week, he was charged with molesting or raping at least seven patients, including some infants. But video tapes and computer records indicate that the numbers are much greater in number. Dr. Earl B. Bradley is reported to be on suicide watch, but is this story too gruesome and horrific for even the tabloids and television programs to report? Probably not.

The NY Times reports:

For more than a decade, Dr. Earl B. Bradley was a trusted fixture of the small coastal town of Lewes, Del., seeing thousands of children at a private practice he called BayBees Pediatrics.

On Wednesday, an official from the state attorney general’s office said that Dr. Bradley might have raped or molested as many as 100 children over the last 11 years, and the police scrambled to identify victims seen on videos that they say the doctor made of the assaults. They also began contacting law enforcement agencies in Florida, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, where they believe the doctor may have also seen patients.

Last week, Dr. Bradley, 56, was charged with molesting or raping at least seven patients, including some infants. A court hearing in the case was canceled Wednesday because Dr. Bradley had been placed on suicide watch.
