Rally Against Victim 1’s High School Planned

A rally to picket Central Mountain Highschool — the school where Jerry Sandusky served as a volunteer coach and met Victim 1, now known as Aaron Fisher — has been planned for Saturday in protest of the Keystone Central School District and in support of Fisher.

The school has received harsh criticism for how it handled Fisher’s allegations of abuse against Sandusky when he came forward in 2008.  When Fisher and his mother approached the school with claims that Jerry Sandusky was being abusive, they were met with reluctance and told to “think about” what they were doing before going to the police, according to the Patriot News. The principal of Central Mountain Highschool is still employed (see the video below).

The rally will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday in protest of the school’s inaction, and will be followed at a vigil to honor Fisher for coming forward at 7 p.m. Fisher became the only Sandusky victim to identify himself publicly when he gave an interview to ABC as a precursor to his new book, Silent No More: Victim 1’s Fight for Justice Against Jerry Sandusky.

The Facebook group has almost 1,000 members as of publishing time.
