"A high school football coach who was accused of having sex with a student has resigned from the Polk County School District.

Matthew Thompson, 30, was arrested in December and charged with two counts of sexual battery after detectives said he had sex with a 17-year-old female student.

Thompson had served as the head football coach and head weightlifting coach at George Jenkins High School, where he also worked as a teacher."----cited at Bay News, Channel 9, January 19, 2012 http://www.baynews9.com/article/news/2012/january/371830/Football-coach-accused-of-sex-with-student-resigns.html

Much of the American Public are vaguely aware that these things happen...."a little bit" or
"from time to time". What is not generally known is that the sexual predation upon Students in Public Schools in the United States by Teachers, Administrators and Coaches, has reached epidemic proportions.

One estimate derived from an American Study several years ago, proposes that this is approximately 100 times the frequency as the "sex scandal" in the Catholic Church which gets a preponderance of the press in the United States.

" LaGRANGE - Police say an assistant track coach at LaGrange High School has been arrested and charged with having sex with a female student at the school.

Police say the suspect - 24-year-old Travis Hart - is a para-professional educator at the school.

Authorities say he had intercourse with the student on Feb. 3 on school property just after classes had ended for the day.

Hart was arrested Feb. 8, 2011"----12 February 2011 Cherokee Tribune, Canton Georgia, Associated Press .

Public School Teachers as sexual predators upon minor children, is not just about Where and When it is occurring. It is occuring at the rate of an Epidemic in the United States, to the extent that the relevent question may be; "What Public School is not having a problem with Sexual Predation by Teachers, Coaches, and Administrators?"

Joe Paterno, according to a family announcement today, has passed away. My condolences to the family.

Joe Paterno ended his coaching career at Penn State University this year due to the SEX SCANDAL
involving his former assistant Jerry Sandusky. Sandusky is being charged with 52 counts of child molestation.

If the problem of Teachers and Coaches is by an large ignored, as it occurs in the Middle Schools and High Schools, it goes without saying the same problems will be evidenct in the State System of Colleges.

Well if you are a "bot" Lisareads, that is entirely understandable.
It would certainly explain why you suppose human beings to be "bots" or machines.

"since power corrupts "
==================
Then you can not have teachers over children. Responsible to who's rules? It would be better to give wisdom and let each individual decide what is best rather than a leader. people are selfish so empathy is a dangerous way to manipulate others. Each has their own feelings that they need to control and no need to be in other people's feelings. Be sides who wants to feel another's bad feelings?

How Big is the Scandal?

Some years ago, an Ivy League male graduating senior class was anonymously asked, in a written pole submission, whether they would have sex with a 16-year-old if they knew there was no chance of them getting caught. The majority said yes.

(1) From this it can be seen that you are an advocate for discrimination against persons from different Cultures, and different Ethnicities.

Therefore, for example, you would be opposed to any sort of Public Schooling, because that would require MIXING CULTURES.

.

.

(2) Your advocacy for LESS POPULATION is of interest. What means of Reducing Population would you propose?

"empathy and attachment are part of the foundation of our species as a social species. "'
===================
The word was not even invented till the 18 century as referred to art. Attachment is not empathy. Community and a pecking order have contributed to both survival and slavery. Nothing is ever simple no matter how much Einstein wished it.

"Police: Student raped at school, attack caught on camera
May 21, 2010 1:42 PM PDT

"SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Savannah-Chatham Campus Police say a Savannah High School student was raped by another student at the school.

That attack was caught on one of the school's surveillance cameras. Even worse, police say the 16-year-old girl was attacked while classes were still going on.

Campus Police Chief Ulysses Bryant said the attack happened May 5 at 2:45 in the afternoon.

May 13, his officers arrested a 16-year-boy and charged him with rape, criminal attempt to commit aggravated sodomy, false imprisonment and kidnapping."---------By Michelle Paynter

Lisareads says:
The cameras or the police could not stop the violence. She obviously was not with a group of friends at the time. When the probability of problems are apparent the victim should have been prepared. That is the difference between Aristotelian logic and reality.

Don't believe there is actually an epidemic of Public School Teachers sexually assaulting their students yet? This has become one of those "untouchable" subjects in the United States.

The media does report it, but it always appears as some isolated and yet "regrettable" incident.

There seems to be a lot of foot-dragging about recognizing what has become a problem of Epidemic proportions.

Is the reluctance of the public to address the issue, because they are led to believe that these occurrances are "consensual sex"?

==============================
We have no freedom from predators, parents being the prime culprits. Fear keeps those victims from striking back and planning protection. Fear keeps people under control and in slavery. The biggest joke of fear is the fallacy of a God.

ISSUE THE FIRST

======================================================

"We have no freedom from predators, parents being the prime culprits."------sentence 1 of paragraph 2, from the comment of "Lisareads" on Jan 29, 2012 10:41:27 AM PST
regarding the discussion topic, "How Big Is The Scandal" on http://Amazon.com

=============================================

.

(1) This error in reasoning is designated the Fallacy of the Ipse Dixit
("The--Fallacy---of---the--Bare Assertion"). Claims need to be supported by supportive facts or reasoned arguments, and when they are not, they are dismissible as subjectivisms, which you primarily deal in.

.

.

.

So how big is the Sexual Abuse Scandal in the Public Schools in the United States?

Current estimates are that this ongoing problem is about 100 Times the Sex Scandal problem which appeared in the Catholic Church in past decades.

Besides, Public School Teachers being highly educated and members of the National Education Association (teacher's union) and the Largest Union in the USA, clearly know the difference between violating State Statutes and having a Personal Relationship.

This is owing to the Ecellent Education Curriculum in American Colleges and the ability of the NEA to inform their membership as to what is Legal and what is Not Legal.
