Hold your applause for Sandusky accuser's high school

ACCUSED PREDATOR: Jerry Sandusky when he was riding high.
  • ACCUSED PREDATOR: Jerry Sandusky when he was riding high.
The high school of one of the alleged rape victims of former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky has been praised for reporting concerns about him to authorities.

Oh, really?

This Huffington Post article by Ryan Buell should chill and outrage you. It's about how the school tried to allay a mother's concern, discouraged reporting sexual assault, violated the student's confidence and did little about the living hell his life became at the hands of other students and coaches. He was bullied out of school. Nice bunch. Hell isn't hot enough for people who put a football "program" above the well-being of children.

Thanks to Pat Lynch for calling this to my attention on Twitter.

The New York Times has more reporting on the same boy.
