Penn State Sandusky Freeh Report on Child Molesting–Shari Karney speaks out

Do the other players in the Sandusky case of scandal need to be prosecuted for facilitating Sandusky for perpetrating the illicit abuse of boys as child molester?

Shari Karney: The Sandusky child sexual abuse report done by Freeh shows that the President Spanier, Senior Vice President, Finance and Business, Gary Schultz, Athletic Director, Timothy Curley, and Head Football Coach, Joe Paterno—all showed they failed to protect helpless child victims and showed a total disregard for these victims. To me it makes them silent partners. And a silent partner is someone who lives with, is related to, knows, sees, hears, that a child is being sexually abused and does nothing. As silent partners they are co-conspirators, and should be held equally guilty. As human beings, I find them equally culpable. They are enablers. Evil prevails when good men do nothing. The other silent partner that no one has talked about is Dottie Sandusky, his wife.

Shari Karney, Esq. legislative crusader and defender of molested children   This interview with Shari Karney, attorney and commentator contains adult content of an explicit sexual kind. Know it holds some graphic statements about child molesting. That kind of material in an interview of a kind dealing with issues in the news today, like the […]

An Innocent Children’s Show Does Not Promote Child Abuse

The image on the screen was of the Supreme Court ruling in favor of gay marriage. Is an image of a happy couple- straight or homosexual- a promulgation of child abuse? That is what one Christian radio host would have us believe. Host Bryan Fischer remarked upon the most recent cover of The New Yorker […]

Toddlers & Tiaras–Part 2

It is given that there is a look to the model, especially the model of clothes. One maxim for this kind of look is that the model shows the clothes, not that the clothes show the model. But in this Paris Vogue, the ten year old girls in these photos are young and beautiful–very young. Young and skinny, but of course. Yet the note for them as the model as object of fashion perfection is not what they wear, but how they look: beautiful, sexy, and hot. To your way of thinking is this a means of exploiting children for the purposes of a kind of prurient delight and to sell magazines?

Shari Karney: Like the adage, You can never be too young, too thin, or too rich. But Kids apparently, in the fashion business you can never be too young. The sexploitation of children to sell clothes, fashion and perfume, leads to a viewing of children as objects of sexual desire. It dehumanizes children. It takes away the idea of a child being innocent. Predators do not see children as innocent, and often blame the child for the sexual abuse. And makes children potential victims of child sexual abuse. Little girls in erotic pose and dress makes even adult males excited, so studies indicate. French Vogue using little girls as adults crosses the line and appeals to the potential predator in many males.

Olympic swimming & their coaches: Sometimes sexual predators–Shari Karney Speaks Out

We need to use the proper language: Calling this a relationship implies it is between consenting adults. You don’t have a consenting relationship between a 13-year old swimmer and a 33 year old Olympic coach. This is another Sandusky coach-predator action except this one is taking place in the swimming pool instead of the shower. Again, a coach preys on a child athlete. The 13-year old is an Olympic Swimmer named Kelley Davies Currin. She is now 43-years old. She stifled this for 23 years because she signed a piece of paper when she was nineteen.

In my opinion where a coach sexually molests a 13-year old girl for four years, and is around pre-pubescent girls in bathing suits all the time…it is likely there are going to be other victims. I find it highly unlikely that Kelley is the only one. With Sandusky, after the first boy came forward, nine other child victims followed and told their harrowing stories.

I would like to support swimmers, children and child athletes to give them the strength to come forward and speak out. I am asking for an investigation by U.S. Olympics Committee and FBI and lets hope that Louis Freeh does a report. The FBI needs to investigate since adult predators cross State lines with their child/teen Olympic Contenders, and even cross to foreign countries.

Toddlers & Tiaras–Part 3

That the father of Jonbenet Ramsey’s says that Pageants like, “Toddlers and Tiaras” is ‘Bizarre’ seems an unusual, if not odd thing for him to say in this ABC news YouTube. Was she not a wonderful and successful pageant girl on television? More, do you think because of her beauty and fame, the kind of end she came to, which is unknown, was the result of some strange act that involved that beauty and fame? In other words, are these children who participate in Pageants vulnerable to various kinds of exploitation, and in this case murder because of that television exploitation? Significantly, is this a kind of abuse of a child, to allow them the ‘Bizarre’ act of being in Pageants like “Toddlers and Tiaras?”

Shari Karney: It is my personal opinion that Jonbenet Ramsey’s participation in the kiddie beauty pageant circuit led to her death and was linked to pornographic pictures being taken of her that went too far. One of the factors in the autopsy report was that the child died with a garret around her neck. A garret is used by adults to cause a loss of consciousness to increase orgasm. And I think that they ended up choking her to death when simulating the garret use in a pornographic photo.

For Jonbenet’s father to say that Toddlers & Tiara is bizarre strikes me as bizarre. Why wasn’t it grotesque when he let his own daughter be in this kind of child exploitation—“beauty pageant.”

Toddlers & Tiaras–Part 1


In this first question, and here the question references the two videos from Anderson’s hit reality show “Toddlers and Tiaras,” Do you believe that “Toddlers and Tiaras” is adding to the sexualization of children? As the first video notes in the short discussion with Moms, some say there is nothing wrong with this kind of thing, as it is harmless and just fun. In the second video, the viewer sees audience reaction. Obviously, the audience members enjoy the display and actions of the children. Will you comment?

Shari Karney: Showing children in scantily clad, “Pretty Woman Prostitute Outfits,” “Lady Gaga Outfits with attempt to show 3-year-old Child Cleavage,” turns children into adult sex objects. These children are being judged at 3 and 4 and 5 years old, based on their sexuality, beauty, sexiness and then we all are astonished when there is so much sexual abuse of young children. The other part of this that is so disturbing is that we value girls based on their sexiness, beauty, make-up, spiked heels, clothes, spray tans, and we don’t value them or show them as valued girls that are based on genuine qualities such as intelligence, compassion, athletic ability, science talent, artistic sense. We are saying if you are a girl, you are only of interest to us—famous, given a lot of attention—if you are sexy. Remember these kids are 3, 4, 5, 6., 7.

Many find this “Toddlers and Tiaras” reality show a case of children and values—gone wrong. What are we asking of our little children? What’s valuable to us? We’re teaching makeover and boobs? Is this display of children a form of exploitation, and in terms of values held by a parent, what are we told about the values they hold?

Shari Karney: I’ll give you an example, one of these little girls in “Toddlers and Tiaras” is on a no-more-than sixteen hundred calories a day diet and has lost ten pounds over the summer. She is six years old. Furthermore they are giving these children ldren energy drinks, it consists of caffeine and sugar. On Anderson Cooper, they showed one of the kids drinking the juice, and then Anderson Cooper took a few swigs and said himself, it was the sugariest drink. It was so much so that his hands were shaking. The drink is called, “GoGo Juice.” It’s made of one part Mountain Dew and one part Red Bull. It’s bad because, children have natural energy. But these children not only dress as sexual adults, but they are drinking adult energy drinks to be more energetic, provocative, sexy- cute. Why aren’t the drinks to increase their intelligence, or something healthy to help them grow up and be strong. We are making these children into caffeinated-sugar-high-wound-up Barbie Dolls. Pull the string and you get a performing doll. What message does this give to the little girl in Indiana, or Ohio, or anywhere?

Pope Francis Criminalizing Sexual Abuse of Children-TOO LITTLE TOO LATE?

We applaud the Pope’s action, but wonder, “Is it too little, too late?” Pope Francis recently brought the Vatican up to speed this past Thursday when it comes to laws regarding sexual abuse in children. The Pope has finally laid down a law that makes it a crime to abuse children sexually or physically on Vatican […]
