    I don't know how many of you are following the Larry Nassar situation, which is terrible and disgusting. He was a doctor for MSU and US Gymnastics and used that position to sexual abuse gymnasts and MSU athletes.

    What really bugs me about this is Michigan State's role in all of this. We've rightfully pilloried PSU for their role in Sandusky, but the outrage on MSU is not really there, outside of some people in Michigan.

    Long story short, MSU claims it didn't know about Nasser's abuse until 2016. However, 14 different people at MSU were told about his abuse over 20 years. And they did basically nothing: http://www.detroitnews.com/story/te...sident-told-nassar-complaint-2014/1042071001/

    It's disgusting, and I really hope these MSU people end up in jail along with Nasser. But MSU seems content to try to sweep this under the rug.

    Yeah, watched some of the testimonies. It's disgusting. He should be buried alive and anyone who they can prove responsible for keeping him in this position should rot in prison.

    Check out this e-mail in 2016 from MSU's President, too:



    According to that story I linked, she was told about Nassar's abuse in 2014.

    My wife has turned me into a full on USA Gymnastics and USA Figure Skating fan over the past decade and a half we've been together so I've been following this really closely and have been absolutely disgusted at how this whole thing has played out. This is worse than what happened with the State Penn Pedos and could have and should have been avoided had someone, anyone, not fallen down on the job. When I saw Nasser begging for mercy from the court tom bout "praying the rosary daily for forgiveness" all I could think about was my main man Johnny Weir and queen bad ass Alicia Sacramone running over that sack of monkey dung with a steamroller.

    Just an absolute disgrace that this animal was allowed to get away with this for so long because no one wanted to intervene. Let them all burn.

    The only recommendation for this guy is a meeting of his windpipe with a 12 ga blast.

    I haven't really followed it. What kind of pervert are we tom bout here. We he supposed to be massaging them and he felt their ass and places where there boobs would be if they weren't gymnasts and 12, or was he a fo real raper?

    He basically fingered a bunch of athletes - not just gymnasts - under the guise of medical treatment. I think they were both underage and of age. A bunch being hundreds.

    Oh man. Yeah just kill him and all the people who covered it up need to be outed and never work in any position of authority again. They obviously can't handle it.

    This isn't some bullshit "you violated my 'safe space' by being a man within 10' of me" SJW nonsense, this is legit predatory grooming of victims for years and then using his position and trust to abuse them sexually.

    Nah. Too quick. I think more along the lines of:




    . . . I know this is all internetz tough talk. But seriously, what happened with Nassar is disgusting on so many levels. Many of those levels are articulated by other people in this thread. As a society, we should all be ashamed.

    I’m sure it’s just coincidence that the sustained heterosexual sexual abuse of minors is seen as less newsworthy than the sustained homosexual sexual abuse of minors

    East Lansing needs a good riot to burn the campus to the ground.

    Just another school for me to root to lose every single game for the rest of eternity, and cast aside the opinions of all their fans and alumni immediately.
