Boy Scouts settle sex abuse lawsuit

 In a written statement released Monday night, Deron Smith, Director of Communications for the Boy Scouts of America, said “The National Council, Boy Scouts of America is pleased that we were able to reach a settlement on this matter. The behavior included in these reports runs counter to everything for which the Boy Scouts of America stands. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those who may be a victim of this type of reprehensible behavior.”
 Peter Stibal, who headed Troop 650 in Burnsville from about 2003 to 2009, was sentenced in 2011 to 14 years in prison, to be followed by seven years on conditional release. The settlement announced by attorney Jeff Anderson on Monday is the second lawsuit connected to Stibal. A lawsuit for a third victim involving Stibal is underway

Jerry Sandusky and the victim no one listened to

Defense attorney Phil DiLucente tells The Associated Press that since the Sandusky case, the public is more likely to believe sex-related allegations if they're made by multiple victims.

This defense attorney does not seem to understand that even if there were lesser claims of child molestation , child sexual exploitation and pedophilia are alleged that children always be should believed anyway .

What you might now have ever seen the news media report on is  this that Alycia Chambers, PhD, a clinical psychologist from State College, interviewed and counseled an 11-year-old boy with whom Sandusky had showered naked with on the Penn State campus.  
Chambers did file a report with the college police on the showering incident.That report she concluded that Sandusky’s … “behaviour fit the profile of a likely pedophile.” child sexual abuse allegations back in 1998 – 13 years prior to Sandusky making the news. 
Centre County prosecutors ultimately decided not to charge Sandusky, and the case was closed until a statewide grand jury accused the retired defensive co-coordinator of abusing the boy and nine others over a 15-year period 

Why did they refuse to charge Sandusky with this incident ?
This question is likely to haunt the attorneys that failed to do so , the college and the young man for years to come. 

Not to mention Sandusky's on-going denial  all along even when he was formally charged with jury findings that was enough to finally send him to prison .

Here is a student rally for the victims held  
at Penn State  and this link   
has a vigil and more information showing the candlelight vigil in support of the victims after  the  news broke.
(student at Penn State vigil)

 Now  that you have  seen  this article  above  do you think  that  if the prosecutors had chosen to press charges maybe  needless trauma could have been avoided ? 

One would ponder the next time something like this happens the authorities  would think differently about  the lone victim instead of protecting  the college from scandal .

April is child abuse awareness month .What is going on in North Carolina?

North Carolina: illegal aliens charged with 250 child molestations in March 2014

List on the link below  contains 251 offenses ( many of these criminal aliens are now out of jail only to re-offend on the same crimes ) there were several more recorded in February 2014 .
 So we ask ourselves these questions . For politicians saying they vote on bills to protect America's children , that write bills to protect America's children, they amend bills to protect America's children then why do they, along with the media , press and press statements of elected officials and those no longer in office : Why do they remain chillingly silent on these deplorable crimes? When is this going to stop and  how many more children will have to suffer because of illegal immigration?

Are you going to fight  for  people and their families affected by crimes due to the Obama administration's refusal to stop illegal immigration ?  You can  contact Senator Kay Hagen here on this link email or telephone numbers are on this link  Senator  Hagen voted yes to  the senate immigration bill  while choosing to ignore  these crimes against children .Please  contact  senator Hagen and ask why she refuses to do something in her state about these innocent children being sexually assaulted and why she is hell - bent on amnesty for many of these men becoming US citizens . Thank You .

The Tarheel state is simply under siege by foreign criminals, with the obvious target being the state's most vulnerable citizens...its children.
The fact that the age of sexual consent throughout the majority of Mexico is only 12 years of age, is likely the chief culprit behind this human rights crisis.
You see, many of those Mexican men who enter this nation illegally, not only bring with them cheap labor, but an incredibly misogynous culture as well.
Don't expect to ever hear this type of analysis from those in the mainstream press, it simply does not fit their propagandized version of the 'poor migrant worker' or 'DREAMER,' simply "seeking out a better life for his family."

Chicago Catholic priests molestation new case

"Once again, I apologize to all those who have been harmed by these crimes and this scandal, the victims themselves, most certainly, but also rank and file Catholics who have been shamed by the actions of some priests and bishops. Thank you and God bless you."
— Conclusion of a public letter from Cardinal Francis George to Catholics of the Archdiocese of Chicago.
The anguish of victims, the crimes of perpetrators, the humiliation of innocent clerics who've been tarred by association — the turbulent legacy of clergy sexual abuse within the Archdiocese of Chicago soon will reopen. The archdiocese this week is to release to an attorney for abuse victims the previously undisclosed files of substantiated cases involving 30 current and former priests. Eventually the records will be posted online.
We've seen none of these documents and won't hazard guesses about their contents or the reactions they will stir. By some measures there will not be surprises

Pedophile Louis "Skip" ReVille, updated news on his 50 year sentence

When I first  blogged this event I had no idea how huge this would be . ReVille has caused so much misery and untold life changes to the boys that he sexually molested. His wife  was pregnant with twins at the time this story broke .

His trial come around and I will never forget one young man saying in the court room . 'I am not sure if I will commit suicide ''...This was relayed on twitter by a local reporter and news / crime television station .

My heart  really was sick when it was relayed what this young man said when giving his testimony and impact statement after ReVille's trial ... He had a choice to stop sexually abusing young men ( he groomed some with pornography also ) and to get help . Why ? He also taught school at a Christian secondary school and he could have told someone that he had abused boys at the onset of his crimes ! But he did not and made many victims of those he willingly sought out and molested. 

Here is the latest ....

Citadel asks court to dismiss abuse complaint

Last month, a now-25-year-old alleged victim sued The Citadel, saying he was abused on 21 different occasions by Michael Arpaio and that others at the school knew about the activity but did not stop it. School attorneys have said they would defend against the accusations. No hearings have been scheduled.
The Citadel closed its summer camp after reaching a nearly $4 million settlement with five campers who said Arpaio, a former Marine captain, abused them between 1995 and 2001.
Arpaio pleaded guilty to multiple charges in 2003 following a military court-martial and served 15 months at the Charleston Naval Brig. Court records show Arpaio was ultimately sentenced to serve more than 12 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to a carjacking charge in 2012.
According to the lawsuit, Arpaio attended The Citadel from 1993 until 1997 and worked at the summer camp for seven years, starting in 1995.
The unidentified camper was at the Citadel for three weeks each summer from 1998 to 2000. During that time, the lawsuit alleges, campers often stayed in Arpaio's room, where they were exposed to pornography, alcohol and sexual abuse.
Camp officials knew that Arpaio was molesting campers and regularly taking some of them to his private apartment but never reported the activity, according to the lawsuit, which also says camp counselors weren't given adequate training regarding sexual misconduct or assault.
In 2012, another former counselor was sentenced to 50 years in prison after a separate sex abuse scandal. Louis "Skip" ReVille, a Citadel graduate and former teacher who worked at schools, camps, churches and recreation programs in the Charleston area, pleaded guilty to 22 abuse counts.
