Joe Paterno stumps for Bush at the 1988 Republican National Convention, gives his most famous speech.
Perhaps the most famous Joe Paterno speaker appearance had nothing to do with football – at the 1988 Republican National Convention there was a Joe Paterno speech to endorse his close friend George H.W. Bush.
Just as his boss, Joe Pa, had stood for class and dignity, Sandusky represented heart. He raised millions for The Second Mile, the charity he founded for at-risk kids. In 1990, President George H.W. Bush had called it "a shining example."
J. Sedgwick Sollers, who once represented President George H.W. Bush in the Iran-Contra affair, was hired by Paterno
Sex crimes alleged at care facilities Ryan Gabrielson, California Watch Updated 9:47 a.m., Thursday, November 29, 2012
Patients at California's board-and-care centers for the developmentally disabled have accused caretakers of molestation and rape 36 times during the past four years, but police assigned to protect them did not complete even the simplest tasks associated with investigating the alleged crimes, records and interviews show.

The Nova Scotia Home for Colored Children opened in 1921. It was big, a house, really, three floors and lots of bedroom windows, on Main Street, in what is now Dartmouth. Back then it was Preston. The children it took in were orphans, mostly, and not allowed in any of the local orphanages or schools set up for other children in need.
Eighty-eight years ago this week, the north end of Halifax was flattened in the Halifax Explosion, and the number of orphans skyrocketed. There was nowhere for black children to go. In Shattered City, Janet Kitz writes that a committee set up after the explosion felt “‘Coloured or feeble-minded orphans constituted a special problem that would have to be dealt with.” www.thecoast.ca/halifax/a-place-called-home/Content?oid=958363 ____________________________________

Victims advocate Norbert Denef dismissed the study as biased in favor of the Church that commissioned it, and called for an independent commission to study clerical abuse cases. "You wouldn't ask the mafia to investigate its own crimes," Denef, head of an advocacy group called Netzwerk B, told daily newspaper Die Welt.
Incompetence or Corruption: Ultra-Orthodox Sex Abuse and the Brooklyn District Attorney | Posted: 01/23/2013 10:44 am At a press conference yesterday, Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes spoke about the victory in the case of Nechemya Weberman, the unlicensed counselor who had just been convicted on 59 counts of sexual assault and was sentenced yesterday to 103 years in prison. Indeed, his conviction was a great victory for the Brooklyn D.A., as well as for victims from ultra-Orthodox communities. As was the case with Weberman's victim, survivors are often shunned, intimidated, pressured and bribed from coming forward. A survivor myself, I felt great relief when, just after hours of deliberation, the jury came back with 59 guilty verdicts. This conviction sends a very strong message to those who commit, as well as cover up such heinous crimes: Justice will be served. Another matter, however, compelled me to attend. Recently, the Jewish Week published an article suggesting serious misconduct by the Brooklyn D.A. in handling another child sex abuse case. Rabbi Baruch Lebovits had been convicted on multiple counts of sexual assault, but the verdict was overturned due to a technicality. The Jewish Week's article highlighted disturbing consequences facing victims and advocates today. www.huffingtonpost.com/chaim-levin/incompetence-or-corruption-ultra-orthodox-sex-abuse-and-the-brooklyn-district-attorney_b_2533549.html
Abuse victims criticize Quebec Cardinal Marc Ouellet MONTREAL - Quebec City's Catholic Diocese pleaded Thursday for reporters to not help ruin Cardinal Marc Ouellet's chances of becoming the next pope. Diocese spokesman Jasmin Lemieux-Lefebvre said recent media reports have sullied Ouellet's name and unfairly associated the cardinal with his brother, a convicted pedophile. cnews.canoe.ca/CNEWS/Canada/2013/03/07/20637771.html

- Canadians are travelling to Cuba in surprising numbers to sexually exploit young people trapped in this socialist country’s underground sex tourism industry, a joint investigation by the Toronto Star and El Nuevo Herald, the Spanish-language sister publication of the Miami Herald, has found.
- Havana’s conspicuous scenes of street-level prostitution are the public face of a hidden, sordid trade in children as young as four. Many prostituted children in Cuba are second- or third-generation, following in the footsteps of sex-worker mothers to earn money for families complicit in their exploitation.
- Canadian men, generally between 40 and 60 years of age, are among the most numerous sexual predators in Cuba, according to internal government reports, international experts, diplomatic cables and on-the-ground interviews.
