Former Red Sox Clubhouse Manager Molested 12 Black Children


They had 11 kids and they were all black, almost as if they wouldn't let this happen to little white boys."


 Jerry Sandusky appears to only be the latest in authoritative sports figures who’ve taken advantage of young boys in their care.  Donald Fitzpatrick, a long time clubhouse manager for the Boston Red Sox, molested several boys between 1971 and 1991 in Winter Haven, Florida, where the team held its spring training.

"He grabbed me and told me to take my clothes off," Leeronnie Ogletree. "I'll never forget him putting his mouth on my penis. I don't mind telling it now because I'm over it. But that stands out. And I'll never forget it."

Ogletree says that Fitzpatrick put his mouth on the boy’s penis. 

The truth didn’t come out on Fitzpatrick until 2003 when the Red Sox settled a $3.15 million federal lawsuit brought against them by Ogletree and seven other young men who were molested by the manager.
Benjamin Crump, the attorney who handled the Ogletree case against the Red Sox, said that there were quite a few similarities between this and the Penn State situation.  There were cover-ups, denials, and the door was open for pedophiles to be in dominant positions to take advantage of “poor black boys.”
"You have these sports institutions; you have all these people of authority; you have all this public support for these institutions and hear talk about what great institutions they are, but then when you ask them to do the right thing and have compassion for these young people, the institutions deny, deny, deny," said Crump. "They sweep it under the rug and they look the other way."

Players found out what the manager was doing, and would warn kids to stay away from him.  When the kids came forward to the team, they covered it up in the same manner as Penn State.  The team did not alert the authorities or fire Fitzpatrick.

"These kids came from impoverished backgrounds and many times, no father. Fitzpatrick used that to his advantage and preyed on these kids that were poor," Crump said. "The one thing that I do think is not similar to the Penn State situation is that with the Boston Red Sox case, they had 11 kids and they were all black, almost as if they wouldn't let this happen to little white boys."

I hope it all serves as an alarm to parents who throw their trust in people and promises, only to regret their mistake for life.

What do you think about all of those
precious little children in places
like the Continent of Africa? When we learn of the homosexuality of the
Movie stars back in the day and how
people travelled to the far land of
Africa, Brazel and more, what do you think? My heart
is saddened. I believe there is a
God. No matter what, there is a God
a good God. I believe.

OK PEOPLE WAKE UP!!! YOU KNOW WHEN MALCOLM X TALKED ABOUT THE 'CHICKENS COME HOME TO ROOST" WELL CONSIDER THIS THE BEGINNING OF A HUGE SYSTEMIC PRACTICE THAT THIS MALE DOMINATED SYSTEMS HAS ALLOWED TO HAPPEN FOR YEARS. JUST LOOK AT IT FOR WHAT IT IS, FROM THE SALVE SHIPS TO THE CATHOLIC PRIEST, PASTORS, TEACHERS, ETC...
ALL OF THEM OF TAKING ADVANTAGE OF CHILDREN AND WOMEN. IS IT REALLY SOMETHING SO HIDDEN THAT WE CANNOT SEE THAT MEN HAVE BEEN TAKING ADVANTAGE OF KIDS AND WOMEN FOR SOME TIME AND PERSONALLY I AM SICK OF IT. EVEN THIS SITUATION IN PENN STATE, THERE ARE OTHER COMMUNITES IN THAT SAME AREA THAT ARE TAKING ADVANTAGE OF INDIVIDUALS IN THE NAME OF THE LEGAL SYSTEM.. I UNDERSTAND ONE LADY WAS EVEN KILLED AT THE HANDS OF THE POLICE/JUDGE AND WHOEVER ESLE IS INVOLVED AND IT'S JUST DOWN THE RODE FROM PENN STATE...
PERSONALLY I LIKE TO KNOW WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON BESIDE THE FACT THAT THE TRUTH IS BEING REVEALED...FINALLY!! WHAT KIND OF DEMINTED, PERVERTED AND CONTROLLING INDIVIDUALS GET THE CHANCE TO JUST INFLICT HARM TO FOLK BECAUSE ONE HAS THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO SO, AND CONTINUE TO DO SO FOR YEARS...WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON!!!

Now, though, it's been nearly a year since we last revisited Ninja Raiders. And while the song's inspiration -- Single Ladies -- has faded from popularity, Ninja Raiders is still primed for glory. penis enlargement
