SUMMARY: A former Penn State defensive coordinator, Jerry Sandusky, was charged Nov. 5 with sexually abusing eight boys over a 15-year stretch. Two university officials stepped down after being charged with perjury in the case. Neither Joe Paterno, the longtime football coach, nor Graham B. Spanier, the university president, was charged, but questions were raised about whether they and an assistant, Mike McQueary, did as much as they could have done to stop the suspected assaults. Paterno and Spanier were fired last week, and McQueary was put on administrative leave.

STATE COLLEGE, PA – In a massive shakeup, Penn State football coach Joe Paterno and school president Graham Spanier were fired Wednesday night by the board of trustees amid the growing furor over how the school handled child sex abuse allegations against an assistant coach. The longtime coach, the winningest in major college football, was ousted at the end of day that began with his announcement to retire at end of the season, his 46th. It was not to be.

Child Abuse Prank Shows Strangers Won’t Interfere

wailing baby

If, as you were going about your shopping one day, you encountered a young man wheeling a stroller containing what appeared to be a wailing baby and saw that man yell angrily at the baby and violently jerk the stroller around, how would you respond?  Most of us probably hope we would intercede in some way, stopping what appeared to be abusive behavior toward a helpless infant. But if we did do that, we would apparently be unlike a host of people who actually did encounter such a man recently in a crowded New York City store and park. What did those people do as the angry young man hollered “shut up” and stronger invective at what appeared to be an uncontrollably crying baby?  READ MORE HERE

PROFILE OF A PEDOPHILE: Pedophiles Can Be Anyone

Pedophiles can be anyone — old or young, rich or poor, educated or uneducated, non-professional or professional, and of any race. However, pedophiles often demonstrate similar characteristics, but these are merely indicators and it should not be assumed that individuals with these characteristics are pedophiles.
