Readers comment on “educator”-molester story

   Hiring parties “should be indicted” for complicity in crime ─ an old story should end
Edited by Carolyn Bennett

The comments following a school sexual abuse story caught my attention. These are the signed comments I read.

Indigenous Peoples

Predators in
CANADIAN (October 31, 2012):

“These abuses have not been on the rise as stated [in the news article]; they have happened for generations ─ just like when the Catholic Church took [indigenous people] from their homes after the British had invaded their country.

“They [church officials] abused the children. They assaulted the children. And they murdered the children....
Predators, gay bashing
Boy Scouts
“The abuse has to stop now!!!”

SONIA (October 31, 2012):

“This happens all the time here ─ and far worse.

“Values are upside down. Meanwhile, the United States wants to bring ‘civilization’ to the ‘Middle East.’ …

“The only thing considered wrong now in U.S. society is to call a thing wrong.”

LAURA (October 31, 2012):

“It is so sad to witness such bitter events in the world.…

“May all the people get healthy minds and stop committing crimes against each other.”

WAKE UP (October 31, 2012):

Scouts' honor?
“I think this is normal now for European peoples. Sexual corruption in European countries is normal. They think this is the life, and they have the right to enjoy their life ─ [regardless to whether what] they are doing is right or wrong…

“…People who are used by evil powers don’t know how they [are being] used by evil powers and how they are destroying their lives… I hope one day they [victims (?)] will stand up for their rights and not let this happen.”

STRAWMAN (October 31, 2012):


“This guy is a school principal? I am familiar with the old saying that you can’t judge a book by its cover but who in their right mind would hire a principal [who] looks like a gang member?

“Whoever did the hiring of this guy should be indicted as an accomplice.”

Bullying in school
Etiwanda’s interim principal’s page announces campaign against bullying

“Anti-Bullying Poster Contest: The Chaffey Joint Union High School District is hosting an Anti-Bullying Poster Contest. The purpose of this contest is to encourage and challenge students to use their creativity and artistic expression to show their peers that bullying is wrong, and it should not be ignored.

“The winning individual will be the one that creates the most engaging work of art that best communicates that bullying should not be tolerated and must be reported.”

opping today’s comments was of course the news story as reported by Press TV

The 38-year-old principal of Etiwanda High School in California’s San Bernardino County “has been detained for maintaining a sexual relationship” with one of the school’s female students, now former student, who was a minor when the alleged relationship began.

“Police detectives served a search warrant at the residence of [Etiwanda] School Principal Brian Garrett Joseph early Tuesday morning and took him into custody.”

The article ends: “Sexual offenses against young students and pre-school toddlers by teachers, administrators and caretakers have been on the rise in the United States in the past decade.”
