  •  This about sums the whole phenomenon up: (11+ / 0-)
    From 1998-2011, Penn State's "Tone at the Top" for transparency, compliance, police reporting and child protection was completely wrong, as shown by the inaction and concealment on the part of its most senior leaders, and followed by those at the bottom of the University's pyramid of power.  This is best reflected by the janitors' decision not to report Sandusky's horrific 2000 sexual assault of a young boy in the Lasch Building shower.  The janitors were afraid of being fired for reporting a powerful football coach.
    And pretty much sums up why such victimization is still so prevalent in so many areas of life. So many people allow their fears to get in the way of doing what they should know is right. If we were to apportion blame, the major share of it would belong to those at the top. Some (small portion?) of it does rightfully trickle down much lower, however.

    Moderation in most things.
