Sandusky Rape Victim Bullied At School For Turning His Molester In
Just when you thought the Penn State child rape scandal couldn’t reveal anything worse about human nature, it does:
Victim One, the first known alleged victim of abuse by former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky, had to leave his school in the middle of his senior year because of bullying, his counselor said Sunday.
Officials at Central Mountain High School in Clinton County weren’t providing guidance for fellow students, who were reacting badly about Joe Paterno’s firing and blaming the 17-year-old, said Mike Gillum, the psychologist helping his family. Those officials were unavailable for comment this weekend.
The name-calling and verbal threats were just too much, he said.
This strikes me as a complete failure on the part of the High School. Here you have an alleged crime victim who ends up getting bullied because he reported the crime and Joe Paterno lost his job? The number of misplaced priorities here is pretty astounding.
