On Cable News Network's (CNN's) "Anderson Cooper 360", Reporter Gary Tuchman went down to Chesterton, Indiana to investigate possible abuses at a religious school. From the Pastor on down, the school is rife with coverup. Indiana State Authority's cannot legally investigate corporal punishment school beatings as religious groups are totally self-regulated & above the law b/c they have sole power over whether or & what kind of beating a student will receive.
Beating of kids is wrong, maybe corporal punishment is legal David, but those doling out the punishment must strike a balance & make sure they do not try & cause bleeding & other injuries. Students have rights, in this situation, students XVIII years old were being beaten. The religious school administrators should keep in mind that they have no business touching an adult student. Then allowing these students to be raped, tortured, as well as beaten in order to keep them silent so they can keep on beating new classes of students.
Frankly Thats Just Wrong David,
