Officials at Texas Christian school charged in alleged coverup of student's brutal sexual assault

Source: RawStory

Five employees at a Christian school in Midland, Texas, have been arrested for allegedly covering up the sexual assault of a student.

The employees include the superintendent, principal, and baseball and football coaches at the Midland Christian Academy, according to a report from NewsWest 9.

The assault reportedly took place in a locker room at the school's stadium during baseball practice on Jan. 20. The victim told a forensic investigator at the local Children's Advocacy Center that he was in the locker room changing when the lights were turned off.

"Another student told the victim that it was 'freshman initiation day' before someone began to hit the victim," the station reports. "The victim said he was then pushed to the ground while still being hit and everyone was screaming at him. He stated he attempted to hit his attacker but was told he was not allowed to hit back. According to the affidavit, the victim then stated he was sexually assaulted using a bat."

...assured us that he would eliminate sex crimes now that the Cons rammed through the anti-abortion legislation.

Thank "God" that "Christian Family Values" are the "law of the land" in the lone star state...

Do the students just pick a random freshman every year, or was this a new team member they especially disliked?

"sexually assaulted using a bat" - the word they're trying not to use here is rape. Call it what it is. There was video proof, it got out, and still those who should have reported it said and did nothing. Disgusting and reprehensible.

The parents of the offenders (and the victim, especially the victim) will be scrutinized by the community, but not the church. It will be a "couple" boys got out of hand because of Pornography/Satan/the Hollywood Homosexual Agenda or whatever acquits the church of responsibility. There will be money paid, threats made and families will be forced to move. And it will be forgotten by the fall. These were the most self righteous Christians I had ever met, condemning so easily to hell those who disagreed and forgiving those who raped children and/or beat their spouses or kids.

Regarding partners, normal people have partners, but christian males believe they have staff.

I grew up there. If you quadrupled my current salary, I wouldn't move back. I left the day after I graduated high school (Robert E Lee, at that time).
