More Sex Molestation Allegations, Just Different College

The Penn State sex abuse case has opened flood gates, now with Syracuse University being the new target.

According to ESPN’s Outside the Lines, two ball boys for the Syracuse men’s basketball team, Bobby Davis (now 39) and Mike Lang (now 45 and a step-brother of Davis) said that associate head basketball coach Bernie Fine sexually abused them at his home, at the Syracuse basketball facilities and on road trips, starting in the late 1970s and continuing into the 1990s.

The Syracuse police said Thursday night they are investigating the claims, which will include a meeting with both men, but have stressed that they are in the early stages of the investigation. In addition the Syracuse campus police have also opened an investigation since the allegations state that part of the crime happened on the campus.

Fine has been placed on administrative leave by the school “in light of the new allegations.”

Syracuse University chancellor Nancy Cantor sent a message to school alumni saying the school will “do everything in our power to find the truth”.

We can look at this two ways. On one hand I’m glad that these men feel that they now can have a voice and speak about something that they might have been dealing with emotionally for years. But on the other hand, the copy cat cases that are now going to emerge that are looking for attention and/or money. These cases have no merit and will then unfortunately desensitize the importance of child abuse and sexual assault.

    Olá do Brasil aqui ..:):) Estou impressionado, eu tenho a dizer. Realmente raramente eu encontro um blog que está cada educativo e divertido, e deixe-me informá-lo, você terá que bater o prego na cabeça. Seu conceito é excelente, a dificuldade é uma coisa que os indivíduos não são suficientes falar inteligente sobre. Estou muito feliz que eu tropecei ao longo deste na minha busca por uma coisa se referindo a isso.
