Penn State has paid more than $92M as a result of Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal: report
Sandusky, 71, is spending 30 to 60 years behind bars after he was found guilty in October 2012 of abusing 10 boys over the course of 15 years. The long-time defensive coordinator for legendary Nittany Lions football coach Joe Paterno used his “Second Mile” charity for troubled kids to find and identify his victims. Many of the assaults took place at Penn State athletic department facilities.
The convicted pedophile claims he is innocent of all charges and is seeking a new trial. He admitted to showering with boys, but said he never molested them http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/college/penn-state-paid-92m-result-jerry-sandusky-scandal-article-1.2447621

At Worcester hearing, depositions in Bill Cosby defamation case ordered next August
Four women added their names to the lawsuit earlier in November, making a total of seven women from five states. The assaults allegedly occurred between 1969 and 1990, with Mr. Cosby allegedly making the defamatory statements to the media between 2005 and 2014.
Mr. Cosby – who has been accused of drugging and raping dozens of women over several decades – has not been charged with a crime. As most of the allegations have emerged within the past year, they fall outside the statute of limitations for criminal conduct http://www.telegram.com/article/20151130/NEWS/151139944

A backlash continues, covering up crimes against children and protecting a hierarchical and unjust social structure that exists by propagandizing and mind controlling its members. Living without mind control is like living without addictions. Everything looks, feels and becomes real. Those that are not familiar with mind control, social programming and propaganda techniques are being mind controlled.  People believe they are not mind controlled – the reality is that everyone is, the question is how much. http://neilbrick.com/articles/the-battle-to-stop-ritual-abuse/

India’s Marital Rape Crisis Reaches ‘Tragic Proportions’
One-third of men in India, where spousal rape is legal, admit to having forced a sexual act on their wives.
Rape within marriage remains legal in several countries in Asia, Africa and the Middle East, including Singapore, China, Egypt, Lebanon and Morocco. And even in countries where spousal rape is technically a crime, strong legislation and adequate punishment is often severely lacking.
In several states in the U.S., including Ohio, Oklahoma and Connecticut, marital rape is “semi-legal,” according to a June report by The Daily Beast. Sexual violence within marriage is also an “infrequently prosecuted” crime in America…. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/india-marital-rape_564d8c21e4b00b7997f9469e
