the deadspin article is pretty fucking damning

This past March, Michigan State University trustee Joel Ferguson told Michigan’s WXYZ-TV that “MSU is going to look great” after an internal investigation into how the school handled sexual assault allegations against Larry Nassar. For all that we still do not know about Nassar’s crimes or the institutional cover-ups that allowed them to continue, we do know this: Nassar will almost certainly spend the rest of his life in jail for decades of offenses against hundreds of athletes, most of them young gymnasts. He was sentenced to 60 years for federal child pornography charges last week and will be sentenced on state level criminal sexual conduct charges next month. The former physician for Michigan State and USA Gymnastics is the most prolific sex criminal in sports history.

Penn State, unlike MSU, made their investigation into how they mishandled allegations of sexual abuse against Jerry Sandusky available almost immediately to the public after the board trustees had a chance to see it. The Freeh Report did not make Penn State look good, to say the very least, and major figures at Penn State were forced to resign or were fired in the wake of the Sandusky molestation scandal, including legendary football coach Joe Paterno and university president Graham Spanier. Spanier and two others at Penn State faced criminal charges and were sentenced to prison.

Denhollander was among those who noticed that Michigan State, at least so far, has not lived up even to that standard. Penn State had previously been viewed as the poster child of how not to address a child molestation crisis at your institution, Denhollander pointed out after Nassar’s sentencing. She said, “MSU has eclipsed them by a long shot.”

Yeah, I think it's worse than Penn State. Just the sheer numbers of girls who have come forward is staggering. And you have the parents who trusted him and USA gymnastics, even to the extent that they didn't believe their own kids (and I know at least one committed suicide over it).

It's really horrifying.

some of the girls were as young as 8!

yeah they've hid their internal reports on it...girls were complaining in the 90s, at best they were inept, at worst covering up. unbelievable no one else has lost their job over it.

this guy seems like a giant turd

Over 150 police reports and they didn't do shit either.

you wonder how many were too embarrassed and upset, even now, not to say anything. I can't imagine having to report about someone doing that to me as a teenager...then to be gaslighted into thinking it was okay. Shame on them all

The former babysitter to his kids was a six year victim. When she told her parents what he was doing Nassar convinced them she was lying. When all this started to come out her father, overcome with guilt, offed himself.

No hell hot enough.

hadn't heard this one. Can't wait til they take care of him in prison.

again, him and Sandusky are horrible, but they were aided for decades by powerful people at universities who have to live with themselves.

I have access to lots of construction equipment. Bring them on down and we'll see what a sheepsfoot roller will do to a leg or two. Or run them over with a smooth roller and see if a scraper can scrape them off of the ground.

people don't want to believe that someone they know and respect could do such a thing and/or have guilt about putting them in that situation so its easier to deny. This is really common.

Yeah I guess so but damn, why would a child make up that they are being molested? Stealing? sure. Bad grades? yeah ok. Being molested by someone who absolutely has the time and privacy to do so? Not so much. I just hate this shit so much i get irrational.
