    From the above link:

    "Outside the Lines investigated Davis's story in 2003 but decided not to run the story because there were no other victims who would talk, and no independent evidence to corroborate the boy's story. In recent days, a second man contacted Outside the Lines with information alleging that Fine had also molested him. That man said he was inspired to finally talk after seeing news coverage of the Sandusky case."

    :sigh:

    I hope every institution that's covered stuff up like this gets found out. It hits home because I'm a Syracuse fan. If Boeheim knew then he needs to be fired yesterday. However, the investigation has just begun.

    If there is any sliver of hope to come out of the Penn State debacle, I hope that it takes the form of those and other survivors of abuse gaining the courage to come forward and hopefully get the supportive help that they so very much deserve... and those who have been complicit in covering up allegations realizing that it's only a matter of time until their acts are revealed.

    All of this makes me sick at heart.

    Wow. This story, which I think a lot of people were justifiably skeptical about, just acquired a lot more credibility.

    Much, much more at link.

    Yeah, this story is going to get ugly. I know this isn't right, but as a mother myself, I hold other mothers much more accountable in these situations. She knows (and admits on the tape) her husband has sexual issues with boys, and she witnessed it?, yet she does NOTHING to help the child/boy. Maybe it's just as well this story is coming out after PSU because nothing will shock me anymore. But, what kind of mother/woman/HUMAN does nothing? I know I am not alone in my convictions. It scares me to think people are walking around SEEING children being molested and doing NOTHING.
