Penn State restored their 112 football wins that had been stripped from Sandusky and Paterno although NCAA hit Penn State with a $60 million fine to fund child abuse-prevention programs. The University must reduce 10 initial and 20 total scholarships each year for a four-year period. Sandusky was an assistant coach to Paterno for many years and he was greatly looked upon. After this scandal I think that Penn state being punished for their actions were more than okay, the athletic office of Penn state covering up and hiding what Sandusky had been doing is morally not okay. Everyone is taught right from wrong, when you lie about something there will be consequences, Penn State coved up this scandal for too long and got hit hard.
A month prior to the retirement of Auburn head softball coach, Clint Myers, a former football player turned in a complaint stating there was abusive treatment and sexual harassment from the coaching staff.

In 2015, Brock Turner, a student from Stanford, sexually assaulted a young woman on campus. Turner claimed that “his actions [were] the product of a culture of drinking, peer pressure and ‘sexual promiscuity’’ which led him to having 6 months in jail on Judge Persky’s ruling. The aftermath of the case, Stanford University, according to Erik Ortiz, “banned hard liquor at all on campus parties; [however], beer and wine are still allowed”, meaning that Stanford made minor changes to address future problems and had little action on the topic. College should focus on sexual assault on campus by enforcing punishment, passing more policies, and learning to ignore their image to reduce the number of rape cases on campus.
Suffering and sacrifice can negatively shape people if they don 't have the endurance to learn from it and/or people that they can rely on. Like when Bo Jackson got kicked out of football because the other people did not know he was going on a trip. That just shaped him to never join that team because of anger when he could of had a original college football career. He had almost a 1.6 percent of getting in again. In the documentary You Don 't Know Bo some people may think that it is not related to the incredible and stunning novel called Roll Of Thunder Hear My Cry.
Pedophile in Penn State The general argument made by Maia Szalavitz in her work, “Bystander Psychology: Why Some Witnesses to Crime Do Nothing”, is that it is wrong when people view crime, and they do not take action. More specifically, Szalavitz argues that people tend to keep quiet for each other as a conglomerate. She writes, ”Mike Mcqueary… witnessed child rape firsthand in 2002...
Amid recent racial events, protests of students, and the possible boycott by the football team, University of Missouri 's president Tim Wolfe has decided to resign (Svrluga). Tim Wolfe is accused of not "addressing racist and bigoted incidents this academic year, including when the undergraduate student body president was called the n-word, when a white student climbed onto a stage and shouted slurs as a black group rehearsed a skit, and more recently when a swastika was drawn on a wall with human feces" (Svrluga). Even other colleges are chiming in on the issue, saying "the university had 'failed ' its minorities after students rallied on campus with emotional tales of discrimination and insults" (Svrluga). In an effort to ease tensions,
The students and staff who suffered from this horrific encounter did not want to be hunted nor did they choose too. The hunter can pick and choose whom he/she wants to hunt, yet the hunted does not get to choose whom they are being hunted by. A school shooting relates to "The Most Dangerous Game" because like Zaroff, the shooter picked what school he wanted to take advantage of, and Zaroff chose to take advantage of the ship-wreak
Annotative bibliography: Should college athletes be paid? Due to National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) rules and regulations no college athlete is allowed to receive any compensation or endorsement while participating in college athletics. It is very problematic rules and many people and professional do not agree with these rules. Despite all the researches that suggested that NCAA the Universities makes multimillions dollars a year from college’s sport, the NCAA still insisting on applying the rule that no college athletes should be compensated about their effort and time.
On August 1, 1966, Charles Whitman, a former marine, began sniping students, professors, and police at the University of Texas at Austin from the clock tower. He killed sixteen people and wounded thirty two others. Whitman had to be shot unexpectedly in order to stop this mass shooting. In The New York Times, Manny Fernandez and Dave Montgomery wrote about Texas lawmakers passing a bill that allows guns at college campuses. Texas lawmakers should not have passed a bill, allowing guns at colleges, because it compromises the safety and well-being of all people on campus grounds.
I grew up with the thought process that females did not care to play football, mainly because I never knew any that asked to or tried. I was taught that girls did not belong on the football field and that it was a man’s sport, the common term “you throw like a girl” is the worst trash talk you hear growing up. There is the belief growing up that if you play football you are “tough”. Participating in a male dominant sport gives you this sense of pride and makes you feel manly. For me this was not something I thought much of, nor was it the reason I played.
Rice, who played for the Baltimore Ravens, only received a two game suspension after video came out in 2014 proving his crime. Meanwhile Buffalo Bills player Seantrel Henderson in 2016 was banned from the NFL for using medical Marijuana, prescribed for Crohn 's disease. Its instances like this since the beginning Goodell 's tenure in 2006, that displays his lack of commitment to ethics in the professional sports industry. Goodell and his administration, have shown that profits and viewership take precedent over the well beings of people associated with the
Justice:: In this experiment participant was not getting any justice because during this study there treatment was available then also subject was not getting any treatment of Syphilis and at the end most of the subjects was die and they won’t get any justice. By concluding the Tuskegee study did not respect ethical principles, no diversity, no informed consent, no confidentiality and the researchers coerced the subjects into the study and did not let them have a proper medication to treat the syphilis. Based on my personal thoughts go out to the families that lost their loved ones back then due to the Tuskegee Syphilis Study. I personally think that this study should have never been conducted.
The NCAA is willing to provide extra money to “Pell Grant recipients” for personal items and travel home in case of emergencies (Gerdy 8). The opinion that college athletes shouldn’t be paid exists all around the country. College athletes shouldn’t be paid because they aren’t employees, the sports programs don’t have extra money, and the athletes are already receiving compensation for their work on the team. Although there are split opinions among the college students who are not athletes, many high school students who don’t plan on being athletes in college are against paying college athletes.
George, I certainly agree with your statement in that, “We live in a day and age where the top stories are the ones that keep peoples attentions”. Too often the victims of sexual assaults in prisons go either unnoticed or are seen as having “deserved what they got” for what they did. This is outrageous. Individuals are sentenced to do their time, not to be victims themselves. I wonder if it ever occurred to people that sexual assaults can cause a world of trauma to an inmate.
Sexual Assault is a horrible problem in the United States. On average, 1 in 5 women in the United States has reported being raped at least once in her life. In addition, 78.7% of women reported that their rape occurred before they turned 25, and 40.4% reported that their rape happened before they turned 18 (Itzin 2430). The sexual objectification of women in our society contributes to rape culture that allows sexual assault to happen. In addition, rape victims often do not report their rape due to victim blaming, which is also a part of rape culture.
