Three women and a man say they were molested as children by Bill Conlin, a Hall of Fame baseball writer and Philadelphia Daily News columnist.
In vivid accounts, the four say Conlin groped and fondled them and touched their genitals in assaults in the 1970s, when they were ages 7 to 12.

Conlin retired Tuesday from the Daily News, where he had worked for more than four decades.
Through his lawyer, George Bochetto, Conlin declined to comment.

The statute of limitations has long expired, so the only punishment he'll receive is to his reputation. The victims told the "adults" what happened, but they did nothing.

I'll put the quote here again as a reminder: All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. -- Edmund Burke

Apparently the Sandusky case has brought to light that it is ok to talk ... no longer necessary to keep secrets that happened when they were children or teens. When they are young I am sure the pervert convinces them not to tell a soul what was done. That is a heavy burden for a child or teen to carry thinking no one would believe them ... or it was their fault ... or no one will love them anymore.

I just don't understand none of it ... no reason in the world to molest children or young teens.
