They Called Down The Thunder:
A Father’s Right
No Way!… I hesitated just to needle him, as I had my whole life, stretching the moment, for I knew what I would see when I looked at Frank.
As I lifted my eyes, Orson Wells’ Time Machine started that clock-ticking whirling sound, and when I looked at him, there was the slight smile playing on the corners of the little boy’s eyes and whole face I knew so well.
When our eyes met, the smile covered his whole face. He wanted it to be a true story, he needed it to be a true story, but how could this be possible, he had never heard it, and his big brother told him everything.
You went to the field house and not the office! What did they do?
I finally quit agitating him and told him the whole story….
Many years ago, I was told the high school coaches were putting “the sleeper” on the players, and needless to say, I got very upset. I called a good friend of mine and told him what was being done to our sons.
The next day we went to school, but not to the office, we went to the field house.
Things took a turn for the worst within minutes…. for them.
The first coach made the mistake of addressing us from a distance, and suddenly every boy knew why we were there. The midget snapped at the boys, and continued impressing the boys with his one-handed curls, while approaching us with his big midget flexing bicep. “You aren’t allowed in here, you’ll need to go to the office”.
“The office didn’t put these boys in the sleeper”.
It got worst by the minute…. for them. The second coach stopped impressing the boys, and got up from the weight bench. As he approached, he stretched and flexed his muscles. He impressed the boys with his deep voice, “What’s the problem?”
“Some of you men put your hands on these boys, but putting these boys in the sleeper is wrong AND dangerous”.
Before we left, we had invited all the coaches outside, to put us in the sleeper, AND made it very clear that this sort of thing would never happen again or we would be back.
The Obama Administration, The Supreme Court, Our Law Makers, Penn State, the Jerry Sanduskys, and Dennis Hasterts of Our Country, are pushing their #AntiChild Agenda and #AntiFamily Agenda.
The following stories of school hazing involving sodomy should be all the evidence you need, as Good Parents. I am adding one more story of a same-sex couple who killed a Child. Domestic Violence is rapidly rising due to the perverse lifestyles allowed in public by Americans.
La Vernia tries to cope in wake of sexual assault arrests
LA VERNIA, TX – Last Thursday, Phillip Higginbotham was about to set out for a spiritual retreat in Burnet when he saw an article about the arrest of several La Vernia High School students. As a youth pastor at La Vernia United Methodist Church, he works closely with the school’s students, many of whom gather at his weekly youth services.
Higginbotham hoped none of his students were involved, but did not think much else of it. The weekend, after all, was supposed to be about disconnecting from the outside world. The next few days, he didn’t have access to the Internet, his phone or even a watch. But by the time he returned on Sunday, the town was in the throes of a full-blown crisis.
Seven student athletes, all of them minors, had been taken into custody on charges of sexual assault, as part of a police investigation into allegations of hazing among the school’s football, basketball and baseball teams. Over the next few days, three more adult students would be arrested for allegedly sodomizing a 16-year-old teammate with the threaded end of a carbon dioxide tank before a football team dinner, as part of an “initiation” to the varsity team, arrest records show.
Hazing: An Outside The Lines Investigation
Hazing in America
Last year, Vermont passed “Jordan’s Law,” which requires school officials to report all hazing incidents to the Department for Children and Families within 24 hours. Before, districts had been allowed to conduct their own investigations first. Across the country, though, six states still have no hazing laws, seven have laws that don’t extend to the high school level, 13 exclude “athletic events” from hazing laws, and only one state, Nebraska, actually mentions “sexual penetration” in its hazing law. Below, a state-by-state breakdown of laws, as well as a listing of all the reports found by OTL of sodomy hazing in high schools since 2011.
What has to change? Lipkins says there needs to be greater awareness and accountability, so that victims feel more comfortable coming forward and going to the courts. “If we can’t break the code of silence, we’re not going to change things.”
