When teachers cover up other teachers molesting children

From Robert Stacey Stacy McCain:

Prosecutor: Teachers Would Not Help Investigate Predator Who Molested Boy
Posted on | January 27, 2014 | 36 Comments

Matthew LoMaglio, 37, convicted child molester. You may click to enlarge if you really want to see a bigger picture of this worthless pile of excrement.

Matthew LoMaglio, 37, pleaded guilty to molesting an 8-year-old boy who was a student at the elementary school in Rochester, N.Y., where LoMaglio taught gym classes. On Jan. 14, LoMaglio was sentenced to four years in prison, but the prosecutor said many of the criminal’s colleagues did not cooperate with the investigation:

More at Mr McCain’s original. It seems, however, that Mr LoMaglio’s fellow teachers were rather reticent to cooperate with law enforcement’s investigation of his rape of an 8-year-old boy, and some 22 of them, after he was convicted, continued to support him:

(Assistant District Attorney Kyle) Rossi said he was also troubled by the 22 letters the court received from various teachers, expressing support for LoMaglio. He said he is not authorized to turn over the letters to the public or divulge the names of the teachers who wrote them.

Some of the letters were written on school district letterhead.

Your Editor believes that those 22 letters should be released, and if they cannot be legally released, that some enterprising shoe-leather reporter needs to find someone in the system who will leak those names and letters. In addition, the police records naming those teachers and colleagues who resisted cooperation should be released. All of those teachers and school employees should be fired, and all who hold teaching certificates should have them revoked!

Of course, these teachers were his friends, his colleagues, people who liked him and couldn’t believe anything like that about him. And we see it over and over and over again, from Catholic officials who moved around pedophile priests to the officials at Pennsylvania State University who just couldn’t comprehend that a great guy like Jerry Sandusky, pillar of the community, was sodomizing little boys. In some ways, it’s similar to the will not to believe.

Child abusers all look like creeps, can all be spotted out in the open by anyone; they aren’t the good guys we work with every day, the friends we had over for a back yard barbecue. And that’s the problem: many people wind up defending their friends, people that they know and like, even when it becomes obvious that they should not. Teachers and other school officials are still human.

But teachers and school officials have mandatory reporting duties when it comes to reporting reasonably suspected abuse cases, mandatory as in: it’s the law!

This is the case against Graham Spanier, Gary Schultz and Tim Curley, the Penn State officials who had at least some idea that something was wrong with Mr Sandusky’s behavior around children, and then decided not to report it to law enforcement, but handle it in house. Exactly what they knew is part of the question — they claim that they did not understand Mr Sandusky’s behavior to constitute child abuse — but this seems, to your Editor, to be a case of willful ignorance, of the will not to believe.

Well, at some point, the will not to believe, the deliberate choosing to remain ignorant in cases like these, is going to have to give way to self-interest . . . and that principle of self-interest can only be established when it becomes just too dangerous to remain willfully ignorant. Messrs Spanier, Schultz and Curley may well go from Penn State to the state pen, because their willful ignorance allowed Mr Sandusky to remain free and molest other boys after the point at which they should have known he was a clear menace.

And that needs to happen to the teachers who tied to stymie the investigation into Mr LoMaglio, and who wrote letters of support attempting to get his sentence reduced. They need to be publicly exposed, they need to lose their jobs and their teaching certificates, and, if they committed actual crimes,1 they need to go to jail, not only to punish their actions, but to send yet another message to other people who may find themselves in similar positions that they cannot avoid their responsibilities and cannot turn a blind eye to child abuse and not risk serious personal consequences.

  3. Robert Stacey Stacy McCain and you both make the same mistake, or should I say both fall for the leftist definitions. McCain says that Matthew LoMaglio is a child predator or molester. You Mr. Editor use the term “pedophile priest”. Neither is accurate and both fall into the category of allowing the left to define the terms of the discussion.

    LoMaglio is a homosexual child rapist and those priests you refer to (other than the one or two who actually molested young girls) are also homosexual child rapists. By not saying loudly and often when discussing these atrocities the actual sexual perversions which drive these animals to commit their deeds you allow the left to run around pontificating about and even encouraging sodomy and other perversions against our children in the name of political correctness. Now we are delighted to witness gay weddings at the Grammy’s. What does the one have to do with the other? Nothing! Nothing but brainwashing us and our children to accept these perversions as “no big deal” and to accept that LoMaglio and “those” priests were “just” pedophiles, not fags. I say bullshit. The female teachers who slept with underage male students were pedophiles. Same for the male teachers and underage female students. When an adult male or female has sex with a minor of their own sex they are not pedophiles. They are homosexual predators of minors (and in some cases infants).

    Stop allowing leftists to redefine and redesign American and Christian society and culture to accommodate about 3% of the population who are queer! If we don’t in a generation 25% of the population will be queer and we’ll be wondering what happened. Then they’ll come out with the obligatory “study” showing that 25-50% were always queer and just afraid to show it. Then we’re all done.

    We already know it’s no longer about “tolerating” people who are homosexual, now it’s about “accepting” their homosexuality and quickly moving toward “celebrating and encouraging” their homosexuality. There is nothing ton celebrate about a psycho-sexual illness nor is there any reason to encourage it’s practice.

    Is there no level to which these leftist dogs won’t stoop to destroy our country? They want cigarettes, Big Gulps and trans fats illegal but marijuana and other drugs legal. They want infanticide legal but to replace the Americans they’re killing off they want illegal aliens allowed in. They hate guns but they are all guarded by men with guns. I could go on and on but you get my point. Stop allowing the corrupt anti American left to define the debate and redefine the English language.

  4. By the way, I would have written Robert Stacey Stacy McCain’s post thusly:

    Matthew LoMaglio, 37, a homosexual pedophile predatorpleaded guilty to molesting raping and sodomizing an 8-year-old boy who was a student at the elementary school in Rochester, N.Y., where LoMaglio taught gym classes, a common teaching venue of homosexual predators of both sexes On Jan. 14, LoMaglio was sentenced to four years in prison, but the prosecutor said many of the criminal’s colleagues did not cooperate with the investigation some out of loyalty and some out of fear of being called “homophobes”.

    Get the message?

  5. The problem is far more heavily homosexual than their percentage of the population, but as the next story indicates, it’s not entirely homosexual; there are plenty of offenders who go after prey of the opposite sex.

    Homosexual activity is not illegal, nor do I think it should be, but sex, whether heterosexual or homosexual, with minors is illegal.

  6. Perhaps you are misreading my intent. I do realize there are plenty of “straight” pedophiles. And that’s exactly what they are, pedophiles. However, from my observation (and I have no stats to back it up, it’s just an observation), homosexual predator pedophiles are disproportionate to their societal numbers statistically. Plus, my point was that if we lump “all pedophiles” into one big pile (you know what kind of pile I mean) then we are accepting the language of the left, that is, these homo predators are “no different” than straight ones. Thus allowing them to downplay the effect by casually waiving their hand with a “nothing to see here” attitude thus covering up the problem with homosexuals. Sanduskey sliding one to the butt of a 17 yo kid in the shower at Penn State ain’t the same as Dr. Susan Jones giving same student head. Sorry, although they are both predators the first has a far more devastating impact on the kid whereas the latter my just become a fond memory. And I agree, both should be illegal.

    We cannot allow the “normalization” of homosexuality if we are to remain a moral nation. Sorry, buggery and morality do not go together.

  7. Tyler: That’s true enough, but there are mitigating factors, such as the fact that there are a hundred times more teachers than priests, and that education is mandatory while church attendance is not.

    The Church is not innocent here, and has done a lousy job in the past in this regard, trying to protect the priests, individually, and the Church as a whole. That said, the media have focused on the Church, because the professional media want to take down the Church, and they’d never focus on the education establishment, because it is almost entirely politically liberal and dominated by the Democrats. The media have created the illusion that the problem is the Church, and the Church has helped them by not doing the right things.

  8. Mr. Editor, no truer words have ever been spoken. And I say that as a Lutheran. They ( the left ) tries to shiv, kill, murder Catholics. Because they will not yield. Then I, as a Lutheran will stand with the Catholics… I too will not yield.
