Michigan's response has been much better than MSU's response, but that doesn't change the facts that both Nassar and Anderson were predatory criminals.km1125 wrote: ↑Thu Mar 05, 2020 11:47 amHow old were these folks who were "abused"? 18? 20?
We're not talking about any under-age kids, are we? The Nasser case clearly had underage kids and their parents had to know something was going on but as far as I've seen, in the UofM case they were all "adults".
If someone did something wrong to YOU, then it's on YOU - as an adult - to make sure that person serves an appropriate penalty, not just throw the allegation out there and hope someone else takes up your cause to see what can be done. If you don't, then you're just as much a cause of the continuation of the problem as anyone else associated with the issue.
This one looks more and more like a money grab from the university. We'd not be hearing from any of those folks if there wasn't money involved.
The Nassar case is completely different, but the folks making the case it's similar or the same is because of $$$.
