    I hope he enjoys the coaching job he earned for his silence.  I hope his dad got some really cool sideline passes.

    I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
    but I fear we will remain Democrats.

      And as I'm not a court of law, or acting on behalf of the government, and with no ability to limit anyone's freedom, I'm really not required to provide "evidence." for my opinions.  I only voiced my hopes.  You're free to voice different hopes--even if your hopes are as snarky and mean spirited as mine.  

      If you want to nit pick for child rape protectors, go ahead, that is your free speech/ free expression rights. Report me to who ever you report your hurt feelings to... I'm not going to stop you... I'm just going to think poorly of your choices.  

      ps...my daughter was the victim of a sexual predator.  We reported him vigorously, immediately, and he went to jail. He was a popular and esteemed member of our community. He was our neighbor and friend. Our lives were heavy and challenging for a long while after it.   And I admit,  I have no understanding of people who could make a different decision.

      but hey, you do what you need to do...I'll be fine.

      Republicans need people to be stupid

        No evidence then.

        There is so much that is wrong with your comment that I won't even try to dissect it.

        ps ... I truly am sorry to hear what happened to your daughter.

        I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
        but I fear we will remain Democrats.

    •  ummm ... after the event he went from (7+ / 0-)

      grad assistant to assistant coach.  Quid pro quo for silence? not necessarily, but hardly likely had he rocked the boat.

      My mother walked in on my father raping me a turned around and walked out when told to do so.  Never doing or saying anything to me.  And people ask, "why didn't you tell?"  What point was there to telling?  An adult witness did nothing, therefore nothing could/should be done, right?

      The grad assistant gave his tacit approval to the act.  The janitor with PTSD might be cut some slack, his friends should have helped him call the cops, but PTSD can interfere with the ability to do the right thing.  The 28 year old male?  No sympathy for him from this quarter.

      And the kid, well all the kids, I hope they have found good therapists.
