The Bill Conlin Coverup?

Okay, so I read this today:

And what strikes me as eerily similar to PSU is that so many people had a chance to stop this guy, but instead they did not. They all sort of passed the buck, decided not to call police, let him continue to molest other children, all while telling their own children "just stay away from his house." Where is the rhetoric of a cover-up? Why is nobody being fired from their jobs if they elected to not say anything? Is it possible that this topic is just one that is so foreign to our natural instincts as humans that we just decide to not talk about it? To keep it "in house" because it makes us uncomfortable. In all these new cases of molestation the one constant seems to be that victims/their families and friends would rather not talk about it, just leave it be and ignore it. Does that mean they are turning their back on future victims? Maybe, but they all seem to do it. It's unfair that PSU coaches and administrators are being portrayed as the only people to keep this silent thus emboldening a monster to continue his sins behind a cloak of secrecy. Its Bull Sh*t.
