While watching “Happy Valley” it was easy to see how it affected the players, student body, and community at State College, Pa. Sandusky had been so pivotal in the winning seasons at Penn State, it was difficult for people close to him to believe his victims testimonies. The sports scene isn’t known for being open about things such as, sexual orientation or sexual abuse that may occur. Victim blaming is also a widespread practice in universities and colleges across America. Considering those things, it’s not far-fetched to conclude that college football didn’t have any safeguards in place to prevent abuse at Penn State. The blame had to go somewhere, and it’s surprising where it ended
The students could have sued Knight and the University for abuse among other things. After being warned several times, a confrontation between Knight and a student caused the school’s president to fire him as a result of Knight’s defiant and hostile behavior. Knight was fired because he violated a zero tolerance behavior policy that had been put in place. Knights contracted stated that he was to perform all the duties as head coach within the policies, rules, regulations and decisions of the Intercollegiate Conference of Faculty Representation and the National Collegiate Athletic Association. The contract also stated that if Knight failed in serious ways to comply with the employment agreement he could be discharged and then terminated by the University. Coach Knight violated his rights when he chose to get in that confrontation with the Indiana student. As stated in the probation letter, he was not to do this and could be fired for such
“With high school just around the corner, a new study is raising awareness of the risks associated with playing the game,” said the article High School, College Football Comes With Risk by Jeffrey Perkel. In the article by Jeffrey Perkel it states, “Researchers found that college football players get injured more often than their high school counterparts but high school athletes are more likely to end up injured.” Youth sports are harmful because they, make the kids so they are most likely to end up in the emergency room, they do not get enough sleep, and the college students get injured easier.

Jeremey Strohmeyer, a teenage boy walked into the women’s bathroom and intentionally molested and strangled the innocent child. David Cash was a key factor to whether that girl had a chance to a future or not.

Because of Cash’s decision, it created a controversial debate of whether he should continue to go to Berkeley.
Football is a very popular sport not only in American high schools and colleges, but also in the entire country of the United States. Is playing high school football worth the risk and harm inflicted to high school football players? This is the main question raised by the author, Raymond Schroth, in the article “Abolish High School Football.” In this article, Schroth talked about the disadvantages and harms of playing high school football to the players. Schroth argued that high school football should be abolished because it had contributed more harmful effects than benefits to football players. Most of the high school football players are getting injured, some suffer from concussion, and the worst, some players die. In addition to the physical
Every year parents and students of local schools can come and enjoy seeing kids of their community playing football, which could make a player's future bright, and a grandparent proud. However, some would argue to say high school football is too dangerous to keep around. Kids and adults are then forced to take a side on the issue for the good of the school and the safety of the children. However, it seems too important to let go. Considering the college scholarships that can be provided, the countless generations of players in certain families, and the homecoming activities would be pointless without it. Football is important to the high school experience and different family’s history around the world.
Football is a very well-known sport that many people play for fun or as a career. It also gives out a lot of opportunities for students and that’s one of the reasons why it is so popular. Many people agree and disagree that it is a safe sport, with some players coming out unharmed and others being severally affected by it.

High school football gives money to the school and improves the school.

However, whenever hazing involves assaulting the victim, then it goes to another level. A perfect example would be a 13-year-old Georgia student riding a school bus received a “wedgie” during a school hazing incident so painful that his mother took him to the emergency room. The boy was a member of the 2007 Charlton County High School junior varsity golf team. He was riding the bus along with varsity members, who held him upside down. According to a local new report, two older students called the boy to the back of the bus and, in addition to the wedgie, punched the 13-year-old in the groin and stomach — all as a part of an initiation ritual. In this case the youth should be tried as adults because of the severity of the incident and the emotional and physical effect that it had on the victim
It is shocking to know that before 1967 youths in the United States did not have the same rights as adults in court. Before the landmark case In Re Gault individuals underage were not promised the freedoms under the fourteenth amendment. The court system did not take juvenile delinquent cases as seriously. It was almost as if they brushed the delinquents under the rug and put them into a detention center the first chance they got. The Supreme Court came to the conclusion that in the case of In Re Gault the requirements for due process were not met. This has turned into a landmark case because it has altered the way the juvenile delinquent court system runs.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the due process clause of the 14th amendment had been violated. SCOTUS ruled 5-4 in favor of the students of the Columbus Public School

September 21st, a Thursday. The bell rings, and dozens of students fill the halls, leaving barely any space to move. The school’s band room fills with yells, as the class had gone late. The band kids push through the door, in a hurry to get to the next class. One of the eighth graders panics and grabs his chromebook with little protection, and runs out the door. The student, who remains anonymous, rounded the corner and ran straight into a seventh grader. Suspects said he flew to the ground, and in their horror, so did the student’s
