    WV - Mingo County Cover Up of Sexual Assault of Middle School Girls

    Attorney general alleges sex cover-up at Mingo middle school

    If this turns out to be true, it's just awful. The girls were punished and the boys continued their assaults because they knew they'd get away with it.
    all my comments are just my opinion. jmho. moo. etc. etc.

    I noticed that too. It certainly gives the impression that, yes, the boys are involved in sports.

    The allegations are just heartbreaking. The girls were punished for bringing the sexual assaults to the attention of the very people who should have been protecting them.

    Perhaps they took a lesson from the Republic, Missouri schools -- but didn't read to the end of the chapter:

    New policies are in order!

    I counted only 24 staff total at the school, from the schools website. Less than 300 kids, state scores are awful! The coach also taught health, and I'm guessing its good ole boys club around there... If you read the full court document in a post above, there are so any ways these girls were mistreated! Terrible!

    pages 6 and 7 of the complaint state the two male students each had a relative employed by the school district.

    So there you go.

    Disgusting.

    Wow, this is really disturbing. The level of coverup, the active and obvious retaliation.

    No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. - 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV)

    We are all one poor choice from being a subject on this forum. Think twice.

    "In the last few years Mingo's sheriff was assassinated, its only circuit judge and prosecutor both went to prison on conspiracy charges in an unrelated case, and a county commissioner pleaded guilty to extortion. Just this week, the mayor of the county's largest city pleaded guilty to lying to federal authorities in a workers' compensation case."

    Just a bit of history for this county.
