Stonewalling Sex Crimes

Surprise, surprise.  Michigan State University fended off media inquiries regarding Dr. Larry Nassar who criminally assaulted generations of US Olympic Team female gymnasts, many of them minors. A favored line of defense of institutions regarding major scandals, whether criminal or not, is the stonewall that reinforces “see, hear speak no evil” organizational cultures. This buys time, which may span decades, for predators like Dr. Nassar and Penn State’s Jerry Sandusky.
