  •  Organizations & HR Circle The Wagons For Abusers (0+ / 0-)

    The organization circles the wagon around someone in order to avoid a large scandal. Once somebody weathers one of these episodes, they often seem to attain a sort of protected status, like being a "made man" in the mafia.

    Is it the same HR person over and over or is it just the same type of person that consistently shows up to protect these dirt bags?  Look at Jerry Sanduski, who got away with raping little boys for years.  How many people did Penn State fire to protect Sanduski?  How many of them got bad evaluations, and were accused of being "negative" or "not team players" so Sanduski could keep raping children? I'm guessing quite a few people suffered to protect Sanduski.  I would also suggest that many of them were accused of having mental problems to protect the rapist.

    I think the people that grease the wheel of this system are the classic enablers in the sense of alcoholic family enablers.  As childre were these the people that cut deals with their abusive alcoholic parents to help abuse their siblings and enforce the strict code of secrecy to protect the abuser?  Did they tattle on others and enforce the family code about "shunning" the children who study and hope to move away?  Are they the ones that made up  shit about their siblings to gain favor with the abusive parent?

    And do they grow up searching for a place where they can recreate their shit home life, except they will have more power?  Are they the ones who declare they are "a people person, dammit!" Are they the ones with the plastic smile that looks slightly deranged because their whole personality is distorted by rage and "daddy (mommy) issues?"

    Men are so necessarily mad, that not to be mad would amount to another form of madness. -Pascal
