Hundreds of worried parents and frightened teenagers crowded a downtown auditorium last night, searching for answers about how a man described as a sexual predator could knowingly pass the AIDS virus to nearly a dozen young women here. Police say that the man responsible for the anguish of the town is Nushawn Williams, 20, who offered drugs and money to teenage girls and young women in exchange for sex, never telling them he carried the fatal virus. His actions started a chain reaction that exposed dozens of people to illness and death and left the town in shock.

For 30 years, American feminism has been building a gallows, tying the nooses, hanging the ropes, and lynching any hapless men who dared transgress the web of leftist-dictated social behavior. Such town-square trials became public spectacles. Feminists gleefully pulled the lever to the gallows doors, gloating over the twisting carcasses. Now, political compatriot Bill Clinton, a "sensitive liberal guy," has dragged modern feminism to those gallows and placed its collective ideological head through that noose.

A Newtown Square man convicted in October of raping a 53-year-old woman after abducting her from a shopping-center parking lot exhibits all the traits of a sexually violent predator, a psychologist has told a Delaware County Court. Dean R. Dickson testified Friday in Delaware County's first hearing under the year-old Registration of Sexual Offenders Act, Pennsylvania's version of Megan's Law. Passed by the state legislature in October 1995, and effective since April 1996, the law aims to protect society from sexual predators by notifying communities when paroled sexual offenders move into their area.

THE UNDERAGE GIRLS who attended booze-and-drug-fueled parties at Tawfik Nakishbendi's Manayunk home called him "Doc" and "Sugar Daddy," but the state has determined that "sexually violent predator" is a better moniker.

A video released by Philadelphia police shows a man briskly crossing a Juniata Park street on a rainy morning last week, hands shoved into his pockets. Without warning, he approaches a young woman on the sidewalk and roughly grabs one of her arms. The encounter lasts seconds. The man pulls the woman across the street and into a driveway, out of the range of the corner-store security camera at the end of the block. The attack apparently ends when a car drives by and the young woman sprints out of the driveway, glancing back just once.

But unless victims come forward, nothing changes. Just look at the Jerry Sandusky case, which has led to sweeping reforms at Pennsylvania State University to protect children and make sure sexual attacks are reported. The importance of coming forward was reiterated this week by boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard, who spoke candidly at a Penn State conference on child sex abuse about a secret he had kept hidden for years.
