@Carolina - If you open your eyes you can see the duodenum, muddy huh, you may want to wake up and smell the trash that is building up in the yard. The neighbors are asking about the strange bald guy who never leaves the house.

It's my understanding that the custody issue was filed AFTER the child came forward. Which is completely understandable in my opinion.

Email sensei@massdojo.com and ask for his resignation. The Dojo must go on and Sandusky is waiting to step in and coach in his jumpsuit

Please take your head out of the sand. The connection between his prior domestic assault conviction and the indecent assault on a minor charges is his fitness to teach children. And the charges against him are quite clear - if you are inclined to accept them.

Most parents would be outraged and immediately demand some sort of action when a man who has a facing role with their children has been, unbeknownst to them, convicted of domestic assault. They would also question the leadership of anyone who gave/gives such a man a pass and continued access to their children. http://www.boston.com/news/local/massachusetts/articles/2012/07/14/boston_parents_seek_to_oust_superintendent_carol_johnson/?p1=News_links
