    is the one on trial - NOT the defendant.

    We must support victims in these cases.  Otherwise, pedophiles walk free...

      that has been evident since the whole explosion Penn State, it's more of these types of reportings really featured in the media.  Maybe because media is changing, and online news media can rotate stories.  But this was on the Daily News front online page for a bit - why i saw it immediately.

      In NYC, stories on the Orthodox Jewish community and CSA have been written in local papers, but I don't think featured highly.  Hopefully with the recent conviction of a rabbi for sexual abuse (of his children) and another story where a victim came forward to speak, this will push more out there for this closed community to hear about.... and make changes within their community regarding reporting.

      Small steps towards the goal are as important as the giant leaps!  :)
