Gymnastics doctor scandal far from over
ED WITE AND DAVID EGGERT
LANSING, Mich. — Sports doctor Larry Nassar is on his way to prison for rest of his life for molesting scores of young female athletes, but the scandal is far from over at Michigan State University as victims; lawmaker and a judge demand to know why he wasn't stopped years ago.
Some are likening Michigan State to Penn State University, where three senior officials, including the schools president, were sentenced to jail last year for failing to tell authorities about a sexual abuse allegation involving coach Jerry Sandusky.
Nassar, a 54-year-old former member of Michigan State's sports medicine staff, has admitted penetrating elite gymnasts and other athletes with his fingers while he was supposedly treating them for injuries. Some of the more than 150 women and girls who have accused him said they complained to the sports medicine staff, a campus counsellor and the women's gymnastics coach as far back as the late 1990s.
In Michigan, it is a misdemeanour punishable by up to three months in gail and a $500 fine for certain professionals to fail to report a suspected case of child abuse.
No one has been charged in the scandal besides Nassar.
Shewfelt speaks up
The Canadian Press
Canadian gymnast Kyle Shewfelt says policies dealing with abuse in sports need to be strengthened to prevent further incident of sexual assault and other crimes against young athletes.
The Olympic Champion said Thursday that it was good that the Larry Nassar case to the United States has raised awareness about abuse but it needs to be followed up with strong measures from authorities in all sports, not just gymnastics.
Nassar, a sports doctor who admitted to molesting some of theU.S.'s top gymnasts over many years, was sentenced Wednesday to 40 to 175 years in prison for sexual assault and other charges.
"We need stronger policies in place so Larry Nassar can't get away with what he got away with for 20 years," Shewfelt said.
IF THIS ISSUE WASN’T BAD ENOUGH COMING OUT OF HOLLYWOOD, WITH ALL THE FAMOUS, NOW INFAMOUS, “STARS” IN THAT ENTERTAINMENT, WE NOW HAVE IT ALL COMING TO LIGHT IN THE GYMNASTIC AND OTHER SPORTS WORLD. THIS ABUSE BY FIGURES IN “AUTHORITY” OR “LOOKED UP TO” PEOPLE AS COACHES AND SPORTS MEDICAL DOCTORS. AND IN CANADA WE’VE ALL READY HAD IT WITH CANADIAN TEENS ON THE WAY UP TO THE NHL HOCKEY, ABUSED BY THEIR MALE COACH.
IT HAS ALSO BEEN TAKING PLACE IN PARTS OF GOVERNMENT IN THE USA AND CANADA.
GOING BACK TO THE YOUNG GIRLS IN THIS EXPLOSIVE GYMNASTIC REVELATION. IT WAS GOING ON FOR 20 YEARS WITH THIS NASSAR GUY.
GIRLS AIN’T DUMB….. YOUNG GIRLS AIN’T DUMB. THEY WOULD HAVE TALKED TO EACH OTHER, SHARED EXPERIENCES WITH EACH OTHER. AND I’M SURE MADE COMPLAINTS TO THE “HIGH-UP” PEOPLE.
ONE HIGHER UP GROUP ALL RESIGNED TODAY, 15 OR MORE.
BUT WILL ANY BE CHARGED, AS THEY SHOULD BE FOR CONCEALING WHAT WAS GOING ON, AND SWEEPING IT UNDER THE RUG. THEY SHOULD BE CHARGED, HELD RESPONSIBLE TO AT LEAST SOME DEGREE. YOU BET THEY SHOULD - SOME DESERVE SOME PRISON TIME AND MONEY FINE!
YES A GYMNAST GETS HURT…… A HAND, A LEG, A NECK OR BACK, AN ANKLE OR LEG, OR AN ARM; BUT HOW MANY GET HURT IN THE VAGINA………JUST ABOUT NEVER!
I’M SURE THE GIRLS MUST HAVE THOUGHT SOMETHING WAS NOT RIGHT - THEY FALL, HURT THEIR HIP OR LEG, OR WRIST OR NECK, OR BACK, OR HEAD. HOW MANY ARE EVER GOING TO HURT THEIR VAGINA, UNLESS IT IS AN INTERNAL SMASHUP AND BLOOD IS FLOWING.
HOW MANY MEN IN SPORTS HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT GETTING INJURED IN THE TESTICLES? JUST ABOUT NEVER. SURE MEN WEAR A PROTECTIVE CUP COVERING THEIR REPRODUCTIVE ORGANS, AND OF COURSE THEY SHOULD IN CERTAIN SPORTS.
WE HAVE IN THE LAST NUMBER OF DECADES BECOME MORE AND MORE LIKE WILD ANIMALS, IN OUR SEXUAL BEHAVIOUR; AND THE “POWER” THAT MANY MEN HAVE TO GO WITH IT, JUST ADDS TO THE NUMBERS OF THE SEXUALLY ABUSED.
SINCE THE 1960s AND THE SO-CALLED “SEXUAL REVOLUTION” - WE SEE OUR DECLINE INTO SEXUAL IMMORALITY….. IT IS A MUSHROOMING HORRIBLENESS! WE HAVE FORNICATION [SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE]; WE HAVE ADULTERY; WE HAVE PRACTICING HOMOSEXUALS AND LESBIANS; WE HAVE SAME SEX MARRIAGES; WE HAVE KIDS WHO DO NOT KNOW WHAT SEX THEY ARE, OR WANT TO BE THE OTHER SEX; WE HAVE LEWDNESS OF SEXUAL ABUSE, IT SEEMS ALL OVER THE PLACE FROM GOVERNMENT PEOPLE TO SPORTS PEOPLE TO ENTERTAINMENT PEOPLE……GOD SAYS WE HAVE BECOME DROSS, GARBAGE TO HIM!
WE AS A PEOPLE OF MOST OF THE WESTERN WORLD, ARE THE DESCENDANTS OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL. THEY WENT INTO CAPTIVITY BY THE ASSYRIAN EMPIRE FROM 745 TO 718 B.C. THEY NEVER RETURNED BUT A FEW INDIVIDUALS, MOST OF THEM BECAME THE “SAMARITANS” OF JESUS’ DAY. [THE JEWISH ENCYCLOPEDIA HAS A LONG ARTICLE ON THEM - THEY CLAIM TO BE THE PEOPLE FROM THE TRIBE OF EPHRAIM]. THE HUGE VAST MAJORITY OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL MOVED NORTH AND WEST WITH THE ASSYRIANS, AS THE BABYLON EMPIRE CAME ON THE SCENE. EVENTUALLY THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL BECAME MOST OF THE NATIONS OF THE WESTERN WORLD. THE ASSYRIANS BECAME THE GERMAN PEOPLE OF TODAY.
MANY HAVE PROVED THIS TO BE SO; A LOT OF THEIR STUDIES ARE ON THIS WEBSITE.
EZEKIEL WAS A JEW IN CAPTIVITY TO THE BABYLON EMPIRE, ABOUT 120 YEARS AFTER THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL WENT INTO CAPTIVITY; HE WAS GIVEN A MESSAGE FROM GOD TO TELL ISRAEL OF A FUTURE END OF THIS AGE, CAPTIVITY THEY WOULD ENTER FOR THEIR GROSS SINS.
LISTEN O ISRAEL WHAT YOUR GOD SAYS:
“MOREOVER THE WORD OF THE LORD CAME UNTO ME, SAYING. NOW YOU SON OF MAN WILL YOU JUDGE, WILL YOU JUDGE THE BLOODY CITY? YES, YOU SHALL SHOW HER ALL HER ABOMINATIONS [JERUSALEM WAS A TYPE - WHAT WAS TO HAPPEN TO THAT CITY WAS THE TYPE OF WHAT WOULD HAPPEN TO ISRAEL IN THE LAST YEARS OF THIS AGE - CHAP. 4: 1-3].
“YOU HAVE DESPISED MY HOLY THINGS, AND HAVE PROFANED MY SABBATH [ONLY A RELATIVELY FEW TODAY IN ISRAEL ARE 7TH DAY SABBATH KEEPERS]….. IN THE MIDST OF YOU THEY COMMIT LEWDNESS….. AND ONE HAS COMMITTED ABOMINATION WITH HIS NEIGHBOUR’S WIFE; AND ANOTHER HAS LEWDLY DEFILED HIS DAUGHTER IN LAW; AND ANOTHER IN YOU HAS HUMBLED HIS SISTER, HIS FATHER’S DAUGHTER [AND ALL THE SEXUAL SINS HAPPENING TODAY]…..YOU HAVE FORGOTTEN ME….. CAN YOUR HEART ENDURE, OR CAN YOUR HANDS BE STRONG, IN THE DAYS THAT I SHALL DEAL WITH YOU? I THE LORD HAVE SPOKEN IT, AND WILL DO IT!
AND I WILL SCATTER YOU AMONG THE HEATHEN, AND DISPERSE YOU IN THE COUNTRIES, AND WILL CONSUME YOUR FILTHINESS OUT OF YOU…..SON OF MAN, THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL IS TO ME BECOME DROSS! ALL THEY ARE BRASS, AND TIN, AND IRON, AND LEAD, IN THE MIDST OF THE FURNACE; THEY ARE EVEN THE DROSS OF SILVER……AS THEY GATHER SILVER, AND BRASS, AND IRON, AND LEAD, AND TIN, INTO THE MIDST OF THE FURNACE, TO BLOW THE FIRE UPON IT, TO MELT IT; SO WILL I GATHER YOU IN MY ANGER AND IN MY FURY, AND I WILL LEAVE YOU THERE, AND MELT YOU. YES I WILL GATHER YOU, AND BLOW UPON YOU IN THE FIRE OF MY WRATH, AND YOU SHALL BE MELTED IN THE MIDST THEREOF. AS SILVER IS MELTED IN THE MIDST OF THE FURNACE, SO SHALL YOU BE MELTED IN THE MIDST THEREOF, AND YOU SHALL KNOW THAT I THE LORD HAVE POURED OUT MY FURY UPON YOU!” [EZEKIEL 22: 1, 2, 8- 22].
EVEN IF YOU DO NOT BELIEVE WE THE WESTERN WORLD ARE THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL; WE STILL HAVE THE FACTS OF GOD’S WORD IN THE NEW TESTAMENT THAT SAYS WHATSOEVER WE REAP WE SOW.
THE FATCS STILL REMAIN THAT WHEN AN EMPIRE BECOMES SO SINFUL, SO FILLED WITH DROSS AND GARBAGE, SO CORRUPT IN SO MANY DIFFERENT WAYS, IT HAS WRITTEN ITS DOOM!
WITH SUCH MORALLY DROSS, COUNTRIES AND EMPIRES WILL FALL, THEY WILL COME TO AN END, HISTORY HAS SHOWN IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN.
WE AS NATIONS HAVE NOW FORSAKEN OUR GOD, WE PRACTICE ABOMINATIONS BEFORE OUR GOD; TIME WILL BRING US TO DESTRUCTION IF WE DO NOT REPENT OF OUR SINS, AND SAD FOR ME TO SAY, BUT IT LOOKS LIKE WE SHALL NEVER REPENT, TRULY REPENT, SO WE WILL NOT BE DESTROYED.
OUR NATIONS MAY NOT REPENT; OUR NATIONS MAY NOT ESCAPE DESTRUCTION, BUT YOU CAN STILL REPENT AND ACCEPT JESUS AS YOUR PERSONAL SAVIOR, IF YOU HAVE NOT ALREADY DONE SO. YOU CAN THEN KNOW NO MATTER THE DESTRUCTION THAT COMES AROUND YOU, YOU WILL BE IN THE FIRST RESURRECTION AT THE COMING OF CHRIST IN GLORY; THAT YOU CAN SERVE WITH HIM, AS A KING AND PRIEST IN THE AGE TO COME.
ALL THAT HAVE EARS TO HEAR WITH SHOULD HEAR!
