Schools, Boy Scouts, & Town

Older kids in South Foxborough knew he was a “perv” but no adults did? Police looked into a claim in the late 1990s but nothing came of it…………who did they talk to? How extensive was the investigation? Where are officers on the force during the 60s and 70s when this was happening? Why doesn’t the School Department have an accurate record of where he was teaching and when? What did local pastors know?

“That is the real question which Foxboro is still struggling to come to grips with after 40 years. Why did no one intervene? It’s the one question that Sheehan’s alleged victims, deserve to have answered. ” ………… “At this point, all anyone can realistically hope for is peace of mind.”

That’s a load of bs! Thse adults who knew and didn’t say anything should be ferreted out and held just as accountable. If someone knew in the early years but did not say anything or try to or do anything to stop it and the perpetrator, they -in their silence- contributed to the harm done to boys following the initial victim. Shame on you adults of the time who said nothing and stood by while our most vulnerable were victimized!

Waiting for the lawsuits.
