“The Sandusky case bears a resemblance to the network I uncovered in The Franklin Scandal, because Sandusky allegedly plundered Second Mile, and in The Franklin Scandal I show that Boys Town in Nebraska was apparently plundered for underage victims.

Journalist finds sex scandals similarity “disheartening”
Nick Bryant, author of The Franklin Scandal, and an expert on child trafficking and sexual abuse, whose writing on children’s issues has spanned two decades, declares, “I find the current Penn Scandal to be truly disheartening, because Penn State, law enforcement, and social services personnel were aware of Sandusky’s alleged abuse of children in 1998 and also in 2002, but they seemed to turn a blind eye.
“Not only did officials in Pennsylvania turn a blind eye to child abuse, but Penn State and many of its affiliates continued to pour money into Second Mile until 2010,” noted Bryant. “The Sandusky case bears a resemblance to the network I uncovered in The Franklin Scandal, because Sandusky allegedly plundered Second Mile, and in The Franklin Scandal I show that Boys Town in Nebraska was apparently plundered for underage victims. Both Second Mile and Boys Town contain vulnerable lower socioeconomic children who are highly susceptible to predators.”
Bryant, after researching child trafficking in the United States for seven years, wrote The Franklin Scandal, which one of the few commercially published books to address child trafficking in the U.S. The trafficking network Bryant illuminated pandered children from coast to coast, with many of the trafficked children taken from Boys Town, the distinguished Catholic orphanage in Nebraska.
Bryant’s writing on the plight of disadvantaged children in the United States has been published in numerous national journals, including the Journal of Professional Ethics, Journal of Applied Developmental Psychology, Journal of Social Distress and Homelessness, Journal of Health Care for the Poor and Underserved, and Journal of School Health. He is the co-author of America’s Children: Triumph of Tragedy, addressing the medical and developmental problems of lower socioeconomic children in America.
The Franklin Scandal is published by TrineDay.
