If you recall, we covered the story of Neal Erickson, as teacher who was convicted of sexually abusing a male student. That, in and of itself was a story. But, when other teachers came form with cries for leniency, the story got a bit more complicated. Then, when the family’s garage was burnt down, it got more complicated still. And now, it appears that even his Union is supporting him, by attempting to obtain funds for him! Steven Cook, the head of the Michigan Education Organization, has been the focal point of that effort. FOX News attempted to interview.
Now, when you listen to the interview with the victim, you see what the supporters of Neal Erickson are behind, so to speak…
1. Use of alcohol to gain the “cooperation” of a young teen.
2. The use of threats to control the young victim, and gain his silence.
3. Manipulation of a sexual abuse victim.
4. The classic pedophile/abuser claim that, “it was consensual!”
This, according to an increasing number of Americans, is OK. From the supporters of Kaitlyn Hunt in Florida, to the supporters of Neal Erickson, these people think that adults have the right to prey upon children, and there is something wrong with the rest of us.
Welcome to the Brave New World; with some 1984 mixed in for good measure.
