Young people like Aaron Fisher are usually too inexperienced in the art of deception to tell falsehoods in a compelling matter. Therefore, when he informed the principal of his school, as is reported in THE NEW YORK POST, that coach Jerry Sandusky was sexually abusing him, he should have been taken seriously. Maybe he was. Maybe that's why nothing was done.
Along with Sandusky, all the authority figures in the loop who should have been watching out for young people should be investigated and brought to trial. The abuse could have been halted years ago.
Was there a conspiracy of silence and fear among the adults in Pennsylvania who understood only too well the power of sports?
