Yes, that's appalling to watch unfold.

Also, I agree with the public defender that wrote this:

The judge was out of order.

And good for Aly Raisman. She is intent on taking down all of the US Gymnastics organization. Three board member quit yesterday.


The first couple of paragraphs made me nauseous.

Larry Nassar is being tried in another trial in another county and a video going around of a dad whose three daughters were all abused by Nassar.

He swears in court and the judge tells him not to, but he can make a statement.

The father asks for five minutes alone with Nassar. The judge refuses. The father asks for one minute. The judge refuses.

The father rushes the defendant's table, but they subdue him before he can get to Nassar.

I really, really wanted the dad to get to Nassar.

Yeah I just saw that. I can understand Dad wanting to do it, but I certainly didn't want him to get to him. The whole thing is bad enough without additional tricoteuse.

Also, the judge in the previous trial has assisted in the creation of a courtroom environment with a vague spark of unregulated vengeance and I'm sure that hadn't escaped the notice of those attending today. Unacceptable.

I remember reading one dad commited suicide because he didn't believe his daughter.

An interesting, and pertinent, read.
