There have been at least two school administrators in my area who have recently either been put on leave or fired due to past sexual misconduct at other school districts, that the current district didn’t know about when the administrators were hired. I think it was just a common practice for the longest time (see also: the Catholic Church).It was definitely different back in those days...at least as I remember my childhood. I remember a teacher sexually assaulted several boys at my school back in the early 80s and instead of being locked up, he was transferred to a different school where he continued to teach. I know this because my father was an admin at the school and I overheard him discussing it with my mom. I was friends with a couple of the boys and it really shook me up. Anyway, I don’t know why they did that. Was it because the boys weren’t believed? Was it because the crime was so disgusting that people didn’t know how to deal with it? I don’t know. But with regards to MJ, I remember feeling so relieved when he was found innocent while at the same time thinking that if someone asked me to sleep with my kids in the same bed (I didn’t have kids yet but was thinking about it the future) that I would have beat the hell out of them. After the trial, I remember still loving his music but thinking he was the weirdest creepiest human being on the planet and wondering why those parents were willing to just leave their kids with him for overnight slumber parties or whatever.
