FSU’s Probe Into Jameis Winston Rape Allegations Draws Lawsuit From Accuser
Tyler Kingkade 01/07/2015
A former Florida State University student who accused star college quarterback Jameis Winston of raping her filed a federal lawsuit against the school on Wednesday over its handling of her case.
The woman, identified as Jane Doe, blames FSU for making deliberate decisions to avoid its Title IX obligations to promptly investigate the alleged rape from December 2012, according to a copy of the suit obtained by The Huffington Post. The “concealment” of the student sexual assault, the suit claims, was done to “to protect the football program.”
….”After a year of selective news leaks and distorted coverage, Florida State looks forward to addressing these meritless allegations in court,” the statement said. “Evidence will show that through its confidential Victim Advocate Program, FSU did everything the plaintiff asked for and that the assertions FSU shirked its Title IX obligations are false.”
A federal investigation into FSU’s management of Winston’s case is ongoing.
The lawsuit filed Wednesday alleges that the female student faced harassment on and off campus as a consequence of delays in FSU’s investigation. Although the woman has not been publicly named by any mainstream media outlet, The Huffington Post found many instances of websites and blogs outing and mocking the accuser, as well as spreading her personal information. This led the student to drop out of college in November 2013, the lawsuit claims.
In December 2013, State Attorney Willie Meggs announced Winston wouldn’t be charged with a crime, and last month, a university hearing cleared the football star of violating the student code of conduct.
But the suit claims the university’s athletics department “chose to violate school policy and not report to the FSU administration” when it became aware of the rape allegations…. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/01/07/florida-state-university-lawsuit_n_6430518.html
Joanne Mjadzelics shared child abuse images with Ian Watkins
5 January 2015
A woman has gone on trial accused of encouraging rock singer Ian Watkins to distribute indecent images of children.
Joanne Mjadzelics, 39, from Doncaster, is accused of possessing and distributing indecent images.
She claimed she encouraged the Lostprophets singer – serving 35 years for child sex offences – to send the images in order to expose his criminality, Cardiff Crown Court heard.
She denies seven charges in relation to images.
Ms Mjadzelics was arrested following Watkins’ guilty pleas in November 2013.
The jury heard excerpts from a sex tape from 2008 where Watkins and Ms Mjadzelics, who had a relationship, discussed their desire to abuse very young children together.
The video was entitled “Jo paedo talk Cardiff” and prosecutor Jim Davies told the jury the pair discussed their desire to abuse children.
They also heard Ms Mjadzelics had said in the video she wanted to kidnap and rape children…. http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-wales-south-east-wales-30682720

Blinded by Darkness: The Collective Denial of Evil and Its Impact on Psychiatric Treatment
By Rev Sheri Heller, LCSW
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing
….We stigmatize victims, denouncing them as inferior given their emotional instability, while lauding the capable and convincing psychopath.
….Evil denotes an absence of good. It is that which is depraved and immoral. In this article we will address the conundrum of human evil—specifically the evil we inflict upon one another—and the collective denial of its very existence, which in turn allows for evil’s proliferation.
….Prolonged exposure to the psychopath’s abuse and exploitation results in complex PTSD, and in the worst case scenarios dissociative identity disorder (DID). The victims of psychopaths are emotionally, psychologically, physically, financially, and socially devastated. The visibility of their distress and symptoms makes victims vulnerable to being stigmatized.
….This socially Darwinistic paradigm illustrates how the psychopaths’ advantages over their victims supports a “survival of the fittest” template. The fittest are elevated, irrespective of their character. Signs of weakness and fragility are subject to condemnation. Power and status are the relevant markers for what is valued and esteemed.
….On a global scale we see the same defenses employed in response to allegations of clergy sexual abuse and cover-ups perpetrated by the Catholic Church. In spite of the church’s heinous history of aligning with Hitler and Mussolini, implementing the Inquisition and Crusades, the Magdalene laundries, the witch-hunts, and the supported democide and slavery in the Americas, Africa, and Australia, the persistence with upholding naïve, illusory ideas of spiritual infallibility and idealized notions of virtue trump accountability and objective reality. When followers succumb to pathological influence, what results is a collusion with evil.
….This study (Milgram’s) reinforces what psychopaths understand; that the innate inclination to uphold and obey authority is rooted in sundry factors such as fear, identification with the aggressor, and the need to belong. As long as there are no serious repercussions, orders dispensed by an authority figure are generally obeyed, irrespective of whether they oppose our morals. This predisposition offers the psychopath malleable, yielding victims ripe for exploitation and abuse.
None of us are immune to the intimidation of authority. The world is rife with leaders in high positions of power who are pathologically evil. For myriad reasons our innate inclinations to conform and obey eclipse our moral judgment. Unknowingly, ignorantly, carelessly and unintentionally we collude with evil more often than not.
….The dark side of humanity must be acknowledged if victims of evil are to assimilate what was done to them. http://pro.psychcentral.com/blinded-by-darkness-the-collective-denial-of-evil-and-its-impact-on-psychiatric-treatment/006697.html
Sandusky Fits Sex Predator Profile, Report Says, Father Benedict Groeschel, American Friar, Claims Teens Seduce Priests In Some Sex Abuse Cases

Sandusky Fits Sex Predator Profile, Report Says
By MARK SCOLFORO 08/30/12
HARRISBURG, Pa. — Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky has been recommended for designation as a sexually violent predator, a legal status that would require lifetime registration with authorities, according to a person who has read an assessment board’s report to a judge in the case.
The recommendation from the Sexual Offenders Assessment Board was disclosed to The Associated Press on Thursday by the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the report’s confidential nature….
Father Benedict Groeschel, American Friar, Claims Teens Seduce Priests In Some Sex Abuse Cases The Huffington Post By Meredith Bennett-Smith 08/29/2012
In a recent interview with the National Catholic Register, Father Benedict Groeschel, of the conservative Franciscan Friars of the Renewal, said that teens act as seducers in some sexual abuse cases involving priests….
In an interview with the National Catholic Register posted this week, Groeschel was asked about his work with the very conservative Friars of the Renewal, a breakaway order he founded 25 years ago. The conversation took an interesting turn, however, when the editor asked about the 78-year-old’s work with sexual abuse perpetrators.
“People have this picture in their minds of a person planning to — a psychopath,” Groeschel said. “But that’s not the case. Suppose you have a man having a nervous breakdown, and a youngster comes after him. A lot of the cases, the youngster — 14, 16, 18 — is the seducer.”
Pressed for clarification, the New York State-based religious leader explained that kids looking for father figures might be drawn to priests to fill an emotional hole in their lives.
Furthermore, Groeschel expressed a belief that most of these “relationships” are heterosexual in nature, and that historically sexual relationships between men and boys have not been thought of as crimes.
“If you go back 10 or 15 years ago with different sexual difficulties — except for rape or violence — it was very rarely brought as a civil crime. Nobody thought of it that way… And I’m inclined to think, on [a priest’s] first offense, they should not go to jail because their intention was not committing a crime.”
The fact that the interview was published, without comment, in the National Catholic Register was significant due to the publication’s affiliation with disgraced Legion of Christ religious order.
In 1995 the legion was part of a group of investors who saved the National Catholic Register from closing. (The Legion later sold the paper, which is now owned by the Eternal World Television Network.)The powerful clerical order was also part of one of the most damaging scandals, involving its one-time leader, the Rev. Marcial Maciel, the highest-profile Catholic clergyman ever to be accused of sexual abuse, according to Time magazine….
Groeschel is an influential voice in the American Dioceses and continues to maintain a high-profile in the church, writing several books and appearing weekly on a religious television network….
Update: National Catholic Register has taken down the interview and Groeschel has offered this statement:
I apologize for my comments. I did not intend to blame the victim. A priest (or anyone else) who abuses a minor is always wrong and is always responsible. My mind and my way of expressing myself are not as clear as they used to be. I have spent my life trying to help others the best that I could. I deeply regret any harm I have caused to anyone.
