The only difference between the Secretary General of the Dutch Ministry of Justice Joris Demmink and Jerry Sandusky of Penn State is that Demmink is free and Sandusky is in jail. The case of the Secretary General of the Dutch Ministry of Justice Joris Demmink is too much like the case of Jerry Sandusky of Penn State to be ignored. Both men have long histories of sexually abusing young boys. Both men held positions of authority in the institutions they worked for and both men were highly respected by their peers and communities. What allowed for their crimes to be covered-up is the belief that the victims are not telling the truth or seeking personal gain coupled with the failure of a few good men to do the right thing.
