And other news outlets publish victim’s statements.
So as a reminder, I would like to use this space to celebrate some of the amazing athleticism and performance of a few survivors while
under the good doctor’s care suffering sexual abuse and molestation when the cameras were put away:
I watched these Olympics thinking what amazing athletes. What presence! What grace! Give them all the points!
We did not know what was going on backstage. And why did it take so long and so many to report before any action was taken?
– Ugh. I just need to stop here today.
¹ From other opinions I’ve tripped across, during the sentencing phase of a trial, a judge’s statements are from the point-of-view of “we the people.” In my unhumble, nonlegal and there-is-no-justice-but-karma’s-a-bitch opinion, Judge Aquilina did not overstep. She was IMO, essentially expressing “hopes and prayers” for Nassar’s future life in prison and as such was on board with the small group of “we the people” at coffee today.
