  1. Who vets these hires? Make them responsible also.

  2. Because of what Harris did previously he should not have become a coach in the first place. This country and all other countries are not for pedophiles and criminals. We have laws of age of majority and consent. Violating these laws would simply get you imprisoned for life.

  3. They were coaching them to do some squats and other exercises

    • No no no no we get it okay 🤮

    • WTF is that picture 😭😂that makes your comment even worse

  9. Great organizations being destroyed. Same thing happened with the boy scouts. Enough of this pedophilia. Enough of the over sexualization of culture. The subliminal ‘sex’ is everywhere it is disgusting.

    • @parker bryan🤣 not the first time I’ve been asked. In the words of Nipsey Hussle “I’d rather give my life, than sell my soul.”

    • @Alexander X I can teach you more about the illuminati, if you want. Because you have the wrong information about us

    • @parker bryan do I? I’ll create my own wealth without compromising any of my values, doing it my way in alignment with my God and without selling out my country. You dangle tales a pot of gold, but leave out the most important part. The man with the all the money in the world, is the poorest man of all.

    Ok i am soooo proud of those that
    Have told the whole entire sad truth!!!
    The Truth Shall set you free!❤️

    But! There needs to be more come forward if they know anything!
    Save our children! Don’t be ashamed! You will Not be judged! Especially by any Psychiatrists, counselors, Therapists, Case Managers, Nurses, any doctors, or people in the medical/Psychiatry fields! They don’t see people that are at 100. So be gentle with yourselves. You didn’t do anything wrong, this is Not Your Fault! I am not pitying you, because i know you do not want people to pity you because you are Strong! You are no longer a Victim! You are a born fighter. Jesus Christ loves you, and will renew your soul. Prayers and positive thoughts to all of the whistleblowers, fighters, and courageous people. God Bless you.
    If you get a chance, go outside, sit down around sunset, look at something beautiful, like a swimming pool, and listen to The Grateful Dead’s song ‘Touch of Grey’
    ❤️

  16. Extremely sad! Horrific! Save the children. This is not ok. At all!

  17. Something else for you. If you die today will you go to heaven? Have you ever lied, stolen, used God’s name as a curse word (O-M-G)? According to God’s law, you’re guilty, your headed for hell, ignorance will not be an excuse… But wait, God loves you, he made a way out for you, God’s son Jesus died paying for your sin.

    God so loved the world that he gave his only son that whoever believes in him will not die but have everlasting life. John 3:16

    God is warning the world. End Time prophesies are jumping off the pages of the Bible, plagues, violence, scoffers,government control, earthquakes, fires, floods, people will be lovers of themselves, money, lovers of pleasure rather than God, evil will be called good and good called evil, sexual immorality rampant adultery, fornication, abuse… mommies killing their babies in child sacrifice, World leaders are prepping for a One-World order, government, religion (please don’t take a number on your forehead or right hand, read Revelation a number means no heaven, and there’s only one alternative) The government is also prepping to have you believe that UFO’s are real… Soon the antichrist will come and fix everything, everyone will love him, he will deceive many… then the tribulation will start, life on earth will be horrific. Today if you hear God whispering to your heart please respond before it’s too late. Say a humble prayer, pour your heart out to God, he loves you, open your heart take a chance receive Jesus as your savior.

  18. USA today is fake news propaganda lies

  19. This is why many victims don’t tell: the judgements and gaslighting. You just don’t know until you’ve been through this.

    • Exactly! People will never ever fully get it until it finally happens to them, plus most other people also wrongfully & falsely believe that these exact same things cannot happen to them too as well!

  20. I was drugged and taken advantage of by a owner at Storm in 2009 never really been able to talk about it and actually this is the first time I’ve ever mentioned it. Has cased depression PTSD and trust issues
