Drag abuse into the light
SOME five years to the day where the Penn State child-abuse sex scandal broke, severely tarnishing an image and legacies, a similar one was damningly divulged. Across the oceans in England, retired professional footballer Andy Woodward, who played for Crewe, Bury and Sheffield United, admitted to being abused as a youth player.
After Woodward’s admission, other former pros—former England and Tottenham midfielder Paul Stewart, and Manchester City striker David White—have also come clean with their own stories of abuse from the youth system.
The British Broadcasting Corp. (BBC) reported on December 15 that Metropolitan Police (of London) have received 106 allegations against 30 clubs, four of which are in the Premier League. Even as investigations are now being undertaken also by 21 other police forces, when the full extent of this crime and complicity is revealed, the fallout and the repercussions will be even bigger.

The CDC reports that 1 in 5 children are sexually abused.
9 out of 10 of the perpetrators are never brought to justice and never appear on sex offender registries.
They are protected by New York State laws.
