if those boys were molested, not saying that they wrern't, why are they just telling someone? i guarantee u that telling someone about it sooner wouldn't have caused shame. i feel that if a problem arosed, get it taken care of immediately.

These are kids in the care of an authority figure who chose to take advantage of the situation.

Just like the above post stated, until you have been there you have no clue what being abused does to someone's mind. Next thing you know you will be blaming it on the kids.

Sometimes it takes a lifetime to realize one has a right to be heard.

Please...these people are clearly just looking for settlement money. One person get's molested and ten more decide to jump on the gravy train.

that may be the case however, it is not an easy thing to tell anybody especially if it really happened
