More of Penn State’s leaders have been indicted now, following Sandusky’s conviction. The charges are “obstruction of justice, perjury, conspiracy, endangering the welfare of children and failure to report allegations of child abuse.”
I hope this is the beginning of a trend. Sadly, it’s really not enough just to punish the child molesters. We have a society that so thoroughly encourages child molestation by ignoring it, sweeping it under the rug and silencing/shaming/intimidating the victims that child molesters have a better network of support than their victims. That boosts their sense that they can do this all they want and get away with it, so we have to break down the network too.
