Plus the days of staff serving up justice are long gone. Way too many cameras and stuff like that.

We're way too busy with the knuckleheads to worry about the other 85% who are just doing their time quietly.

here's a long article questioning why MSU refuses to release its report on the Nassar investigation. link.

in addition to Nasser, two other MSU employees - his physician supervisor, and their gymnastics coach - lost their jobs over this scandal. though his boss resigned before she could be fired. and the panel that exonerated him initially inthe 2014 Title IX investigation were all buddies of his.

the attorney for his boss sent a letter to the school threatening that she was far from the only person at MSU who knew about it.

this could get worse for MSU...

isn't this similar to the Jerry Sandusky case?

Yes, but the number of victims is larger. At least 140 girls and women have accused Nassar of sexual assault.

MSU is in protect the fort mode just the same way PSU handled Sandusky.

Big difference PR wise is that there is no Paterno-like figure for people to rally around and try to protect. No statues or records or scholarships or post season bans on the line. Anyone thought to have known will be kicked to the curb by the fans.

Well, they are trying to give a raise to their president. I'm SURE she had no clue about the complaints regarding Nassar.

It doesn't appear MSU officials/coaches knew about it for decades, like in the PennSt case, and you're right, there's no one "lightning rod" for criticism here like in the PennSt case. at least not yet.

MSU's investigation was not independent. These people are fucking awful.

duh. that's why you hire a lawyer to do it. shield's much of the information through the attorney-client privilege. and even if something technically shouldn't be covered, they can also use the shield aggressively, include things that look bad, and force plaintiffs to challenge their privilege claim.

you can do it much differently if you're really interested in full disclosure and holding people accountable publicly.

It sounds odd, but MSU is actually making PennSt look good by comparison.
