Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 29-11-2016

Hmmm … 

Barry Bennell has been been found unconscious: by his local police.

If you didn’t know?   Bennell is the sex offender named in recent news stories: many members of assorted football teams youth arms have come forward to tell how he abused them as children, and used his position as a coach to do so.


I think he’s been attacked, after these stories have come out.

Given the long term harm that child abusers do?

I can’t say I’m surprised.

And I can’t say I blame whoever did that.


While I’m on the subject, though … ?

I can’t help but notice that — according to the report about Bennell — various football teams have started investigating any historical abuse.

I also get the impression that most teams — now — have much improved child protection measures in place.

Which is good.


I wouldn’t expect the various teams to say so.

But I’m wondering this.

When DID teams start checking for historical abuse?

I can only hope someone starting making noises … 

After the truth about Savile came out …


But let’s move on, shall we?
