    A new abyss : 177 cases of sexual abuse by a professor in a US university.

    Simply said, a professor at Ohio State (I guess) abused 177 students that consulted him as a doctor, from 1979 to 2005.

    (I let one word, to see the reaction…)

    I gotta say, the ammount of people in positions of power not reporting shit like this FOR DECADES is beyond me. They would be called heroes, FFS. Or do the universities really think that instead of being known as having a tough stance on sex offenders would be worse thing that hiding them for, again, DECADES?

    It's almost like they don't think they'd be believed or something.

    One would think that after tens of cases and whole school talking about it for years it would seem almost unbelievable that they won't be believed.
    Please.

    This is a new low even for OP. Actual story without the "just to see the reaction" change is "Ohio State team doctor sexually abused 177 students, investigation finds." So, no, this is not a standard university professor preying on students, this is another unfortunate example of team doctors at universities abusing their positions. Not exactly the same thing.

    Coaches and athletic administrators at Ohio State University knew for two decades that Dr. Richard Strauss was molesting male athletes but failed to sound the alarm or stop him, a long-awaited independent investigation into the scandal revealed Friday.

    “Students openly discussed Strauss’ examination methods or complained about his loitering presence in the shower and locker room, including in front of coaches and other Athletics Department staff,” the 180-page report states.

    “Many of the students felt that Strauss’ behavior was an ‘open secret,’ as it appeared to them that their coaches, trainers and other team physicians were fully aware of Strauss’ activities, and yet few seemed inclined to do anything to stop it.”

    Yes you obviously know much better than all the countless victims, they must all be idiots right?

    Get over yourself bro you have no idea why they didn't report, but I'm confident that each and every one of them had a good reason (to them at least). You don't just let shit like that go for the lulz try to be more sympathetic maybe.

    Unless you are insinuating that they are all lying?

    EDIT: post below showed me I suck at reading comprehension see below for proper response (my bad!)

    To be fair, he is talking about people in positions of power who didn't report it rather than the victims. Other coaches knew, university personnel knew, but they didn't do anything for decades.

    Oh then I'm the idiot it seems. Ok his post makes more sense now lol.

    Thought exercise: why would they have kept it under wraps? Friendship? Not wanting to "snitch" your coworker? What would motivate those people to allow such abuse to run rampant for decades? We're they in on it?

    He committed suicide in 2005.

    How can you molest 177, 20 year old males in secret? Inappropriate touching?

    At first, you think everything is going to be fine when you join the wrestling team to spend a large majority of your time aggressively hugging and grinding on other sweaty half-naked men.

    But then something gay like this happens to you. Shame on you, Dr. Richard Strauss.

    People will go to enormous lengths to avoid taking responsibility, especially if they think it will make them or the institution look bad.

    I didn't even notice. It's just as bad in my opinion, why would it matter what the gender of the victims are.

    So you openly admit to baiting... duly noted... Now we ask, 'professor' of what? If you are going to slime folks, shouldn't you use accurate information? or is that not necessary?

    Castrate him with a rusty butter knife and hang him by his gonads.

    Those 177 should sue the hell out of that University into obscurity.

    You left out salient information... like that he's been dead for 14 years... What are you suggesting be done? dig up his body and throw it in prison?

    You're a couple days behind on this news... so leaving out a detail in title to gauge reaction isn't going to net you much in the way of data

    As for the content... it's pretty sad to see another doctor preying on students, but to know that school officials knew and just let it happen. I dont think I will ever understand protecting a school's image at the cost of the people who attend.

    Creating threads just to purposefully upset and troll others is not okay. Either post the information as it appears in the article or make a separate point later. Closing this.
