“One of the alleged victims in the Penn State University child sex abuse scandal on Wednesday sought an injunction to stop the Second Mile charity from dissipating its assets.
In a filing in Pennsylvania state court, the alleged victim said he and others intended to sue The Second Mile for negligence and failing to report known sexual abuse of children, and wanted to stop the charity’s assets from disappearing.
According to the grand jury report that laid out the charges against Sandusky, The Second Mile learned almost a decade ago that he had showered with a young boy but did not alert the police.
“The assets of The Second Mile should not be dissipated, encumbered or in way obligated or disturbed in any form and should be available to victims of sexual abuse,” according to the court filing.
The Second Mile said through a spokesman that it would review the filing. “As always, our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families,” the charity said.”
If we really want to prevent these things from happening we have to stop thinking this is all about the cult of power and prestige in sports and acknowledge that it’s also about predatory behavior enabled by the Cult of Charity.
