TeacherBusted, the teacher is the one attacked in the case covered by the story starting this thread. The teacher was attacked by the Howard Center, the multi-million dollar non-profit that disagreed with the teacher's call for stricter handling of juvenile sex offenders, based on his 16 years working with them in one of the schools funded by the Howard Center.
I think we owe it to Mr. Laramie that we show no disrespect toward him in this case. He has done absolutely nothing wrong. The wrong part of this case is that Howard Center can have whacked this man's livelihood through administrative posturing, fully protected by the law. Meanwhile, the Howard Center now must be now examined, so the public can discover the truth about treatment of sex offenders.
The last thing Vermont needs is secrecy and information control regarding the debate on handling sex offenders.
We need to find out how the Howard Center's policies on handling sex offenders might be part of a culture that permitted the crimes against Brooke Bennett.
