DOVER, Del. – Dating back almost a decade, there were complaints and investigations involving Dr. Earl Bradley, a well-known Delaware pediatrician who authorities say may have molested more than 100 children.
There were jokes among colleagues, who thought Bradley had an unusual practice with his carnival-like office filled with toys and a merry-go-round. Even Bradley's own sister, who worked for him, heard parents' concerns.
Despite the warnings, Delaware's medical board only recently suspended Bradley's license — after he was arrested.
"The system failed. What I don't know, and what we must find out, is where and how," said Gov. Jack Markell, who plans to order an independent review of the state's handling of the case.
Outraged parents have complained that children could have been spared had officials acted sooner.
I want to know why NO ONE did anything if so many suspected and WHY would you lEAVE your kids ALONE with their PED, there is NEVER a reason for him to be alone with YOUR babies!!!
