  • CHILD MOLESTERS COUNT ON THE INACTION OF ADULTS

    RED FLAGS!   

        If it is true that not one of what must have been scores of people saw any red flags in Sandusky’s dealings with children, then the sexual abuse crisis is dramatically worse even than I thought. Have we failed to learn anything from the sexual abuse scandals that have swept our country over the last decade? Has it not been made clear that individuals and institutions are universally too slow to act? How much more education do we need about such an obvious public health crisis? I thought we had finally gotten past the tragically mistaken idea that child sexual abuse is a crime committed only by slovenly strangers in filthy raincoats — never by our respected friends and co-workers. It seems the Sandusky case may prove me wrong.

        The entire article is well worth a read. Yes, the scandal goes on and it’s getting deeper by the minute. Unbelievable.

    1. I can only imagine that this case touches you on a personal level, Becky. I’m sorry for that.

    2. Me too.

    3. Me three Becky. You may as well not bother contacting the DA’s office with information about adult sexual predators either. You won’t get a call back. No interest in protecting woman from those sorts, at least not during the previous Da’s ( little Donnie Totaro)administration.I had high hopes for DA Stedman. He seemed like an honest man and did put in place some officers who are beyond reproach. Like John Duby and now ass’t DA James Reeder. Just wish he’d right a major wrong perpetrated during Totaro’s reign. (of terror for some)
