    The Occupy movement's hatred for authority is well known. Last fall, Occupy Baltimore was condemned by the heads of three rape crisis centers after they published a pamphlet which seemed to discourage victims from reporting rape to police (preferring instead to handle such accusations as an internal matter). In a similar move last week, a group calling itself Occupy Patriarchy protested a conference against child sex trafficking and suggested that "minors" involved in the "sex industry" would be better off without the intervention of police.

    A high ranking Muslim leader is behind bars, arrested by Phoenix Police on suspicion of molesting a 10-year-old boy. This guy is an imam, the highest ranking leader at a central Phoenix mosque.

Still, members of the mosque are defending him. “Everybody loves and respects him, I’m sure this must be some mistake,” says mosque member Jamil Aziz. As news of the imam's arrest spread through the Muslim Community Mosque, members refused to believe it. “It’s unbelievable to even think that because he’s caring to all the children...

    Penn State rebuffs CNN request for records on 1998 Sandusky investigationBy Greg Botelho, CNN updated 12:38 AM EST, Mon December 19, 2011 (CNN) -- Penn State has rejected a CNN public records request for a copy of a 1998 campus police report tied to sexual misconduct allegations made against then-assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, a lawyer for the school told CNN.

    Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky emerged from an overnight jail stay Thursday after posting bail on new charges that he sexually abused two additional boys, including one who said Sandusky assaulted him in his basement while his cries for help went unheeded. Sandusky was driven from a Pennsylvania county jail to his home in the back seat of a grey sedan in the middle of a three-car convoy. The former coach kept his gaze straight ahead, clutching a manila envelope, during the short car ride. He then went inside without answering questions from reporters. Sandusky was arrested...

    During a lengthy interview at his lawyer's home, Sandusky told the newspaper he and Paterno never spoke about the alleged 2002 incident or a 1998 child molestation complaint investigated by the Penn State campus police. "I never talked to him about either one," Sandusky said. "That's all I can say. I mean, I don't know." He worked for Paterno for nearly 30 years. Sandusky said he never sexually abused any child and that prosecutors have misunderstood his work with children. "They've taken everything that I ever did for any young person and twisted it to say that my motives were...
