He is also the best-selling author of "The Marketing of Evil" (2005), "How Evil Works" (2010) and most recently, “The Snapping of the American Mind” (2015). It was a bizarre and emotional courtroom scene, but one occurring with disturbing frequency these days. Considering all the intense media coverage of male sexual predators victimizing female children, one might expect a stiff prison term, accompanied by a withering rebuke. Gaeta opened his mouth, the words that came out did not express criticism of the teacher, nor acknowledge any damage she had done to her victim.A popular middle school teacher, 43-year-old Pamela Diehl-Moore, had tearfully pleaded guilty to having sex with a child – a 13-year-old male student who had just completed 7th grade – and now stood before a Hackensack, N. “I really don’t see the harm that was done here,” the judge proclaimed, “and certainly society doesn’t need to be worried.

If you tell me because it is illegal, I reject that,” Marten said, according to the Associated Press.“What is the deal lately with hot female teachers seducing their 13- to 16-year-old students?!” asked one blogger expressing the prevalent “what’s-the-problem?Some of the legislators should remember when they were that age. Although most judges don’t publicly sing the praises of statutory rape like these two – indeed, Judge Gaeta later came under the scrutiny of a judicial fitness review board – many regular Americans apparently agree with them.
