Skip to comments.Abuse victim claims Penn State pedophilia predates Sandusky, current scandal by decades

An Arizona man claims he was sexually abused 30 years ago by a Penn State professor and the university refused to investigate his claims.
Paul McLaughlin, now of Phoenix, says the abuse began when he was just 11 and lasted from 1977-81, with an education professor and two other predators targeting him.
The victim told ABC News that he made audiotapes in 2001 of conversations where Prof. Jack Neisworth admitted performing oral sex on him.
Although I had clear evidence of abuse by this professor, the university refused to act, charged McLaughlin. Last weeks arrest of Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky for the same kind of abuse suggests little has change
Penn State officials declined to comment on the allegations, according to ABC News.
McLaughlin went public with his charges as the mother of one alleged Sandusky victim told ABC News that the disgraced ex-coachs claims of innocence made her ill.
It sickened me, that he would be on TV, trying to downplay his charges, the mother said. And I think it made him look more guilty.
McLaughlin, 45, said he taped his talks with the nationally known Neisworth as he underwent therapy over the decades-old incidents.
In late 2001 and early 2002, McLaughlin said he sent copies of the tapes to university officials in an effort to launch an investigation but was roundly ignored.
Neisworth was indicted for child sexual abuse in 2005 in Maryland, although the charges were dismissed for lack of evidence.
In 2006, the professor without admitting any wrongdoing reached an out-of-court settlement with McLaughlin in a lawsuit filed by the purported victim.
The professor is a well-known expert of child development, and has received acclaim for his work with autistic children.
My guess is, like our government, the colleges and universities, are cesspools of this kind of criminal behavior. Along with returning our government, at all levels, to principles on which the country was founded, we need to thoroughly investigate our “institutions of higher learning” as they have been the breeding ground for much of what is currently wrong in addition to being likely nuclei for sexual depravity.
That’s because men who rape young boys are homsexual pedophiles and they can’t let that out becasue it makes homosexuals look worse then they are, which is pretty hrd to do.
Shut them down. Now.
We could be changing the laws regarding taxation and colleges.
I dream of the day when government gets out of the "education" business at all levels. In my ideal world, the assets of Penn State University would be sold to a private, Christian, Conservative institution such as Liberty, Bob Jones, Hillsdale, Grove City or -- of course -- Harding University. Go Bisons! :-)
The whole interstate homosexual pedophile rape thing should be taken care of first. Just My Opinion.
MUST REMEMBER Souless predators are amazingly persuasive — and take pride in their ability to dupe people. They entice their victims by gaining their trust.......the same way they get people to cover for them. The judge’s leniency letting Sandusky go free is another sign WRT how easily predators dupe people-—into being their willing enablers.
Don’t be taken in by a charming, persuasive predator...and be able to overcome his enablers who would talk you out of reporting him.
REALTIME CAUTIONARY TALE It was recently revealed -—— an alarmed mother found Sandusky took her son out of class without her permission on three occassions. When she approached the school, she was told she was being unduly alarmed, b/c, she was reminded, “Jerry has a heart of gold. “
The mom insisted they call the police. But the braindead dupes talked her out of reporting it b/c “that would hurt poor Jerry,” they said.
The Penn State administration was quite busy from 2000-2002.
2000: Sandusky caught in the football showers performing oral sodomy on a young boy (after all of the other janitors on shift and the supervisor were told, I doubt it remained a secret).
2001-2002: Ignoring this report.
2002: Taking Mike McQuary's reported anal rape by Sandusky of a preteen boy and eventually turning it to 'horseplay'; failing to notify any police or child protective agency.
Don't know if you missed the other story (I'll need to find it). Pennsylvania child protective services has opened two new cases against Sandusky involving boys who are currently minors.
The mom insisted they call the police. But the braindead dupes talked her out of reporting it b/c that would hurt poor Jerry, they said.
Liz? Do you have a cite for that? It sounds like what was first said about Victim #1 but has since been refuted by some reliable sources. According to the State Attorney General, two of the coaches at the school immediately spoke with the appropriate officials as soon as the mother expressed a concern, and shared their own concerns. It was primarily their testimony, and not the mother's, that spurred the investigation.
“But the braindead dupes talked her out of reporting it...”
Why do you think they are braindead dupes? Maybe they get their kicks the same way Sandusky does? Birds of a feather...
...”The whole interstate homosexual pedophile rape thing should be taken care of first. Just My Opinion”...
One has to wonder just how high and how far this goes.
The two accusers are minors.
That story has been all over the forum.......and I believe she was also on TV.
No question.....pedophiles are colluding,..... to get at kids.
But my point is that they also have an amazing ability to convince normal people how great they are....to get at kids.
Must be hundreds of victims out there——these sicko pedophiles are insatiable.
Takes a lot of courage for a victim to go public——the cunning sickos count on that.
It does, and they do.
Spot on post,Liz.
