The guilty verdict for Jerry Sandusky was huge victory for victims of sexual abuse. Now that this is an issue of global concern, we can focus on prevention. “Who would believe a kid” was a common statement for the whiteness’ of the Jerry Sandusky Trial. It seems so wrong that a Childs account may be disregarded so easily in favor of a respected adult. What this article says is true; people don’t want to hear it when it comes to abuse. There are far too many cases like Sandusky, where numerous complaints were made but nothing was done about it. How can we change as a nation to ensure that actions will be taken immediately after any compliant? It is our job to make every child feel heard; it seems that all we have to do is LISTEN.
