One thought on “‘Criminal Minds’ Season 9, Episode 8: ‘The Return′

  1. An excellent episode of Criminal Minds tonight. It also illuminates a little known, oft-ignored aspect of pedophilia: Mind rape. By kidnapping these innocent little kids, and then programming them to be mindless solders, constitutes mind rape. You don't have to physically touch or even desire sexually a child to be a pedophile. These children had their innocence ripped away from them mentally, with the same amount of damage. Wish it was regarded the same way.
