You hear something? What is it. Oh, it's a guy raping a kid. What on the face of the planet would stop you from a) kicking the **** outta that guy b) calling the police and my goodness c) disassociate with the monster who raped children in YOUR house?
Legally Joe Paterno might be in the clear. Morally he's got a thousand pound weight strapped to his back. Socially, he's ****ed.
How do you not intervene and put an immediate stop to something like that. And if you are too much of a wuss to protect the child then call the damn cops. It's pretty simple!
Same thing applies if you are out shopping and see someone strike a kid. Don't know about you, but I am stepping in. I'll let the cops sort out who goes to jail, but not on my watch buddy. No. Excuse. Period.
And if I get my ass whooped then so be it, at least it's not the kid getting abused!
