US Olympic gymnast, Simone Biles, during her testimony against former team doctor of the US gymnastics team, Larry Nassar. Biles blamed the entire system for allowing the sexual abuse she and some of her teammates suffered.
Biles and her former teammates Aly Raisman and McKayla Maroney testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee, according to reports from Sky Sports News on Wednesday, September 15th, 2021. The committee is examining the shortcoming in the FBI’s investigation into Nassar’s case.
I blame Larry Nassar, and I also blame an entire system that enabled and perpetrated his abuse. If you allow a predator to harm children, the consequences will be swift and severe. Enough is Enough.
Gold medal gymnast, Maroney, also testified against the FBI and recalled how she spent three hours on the phone with the police in 2015.
She also spoke about how the FBI did not report her abuse, but they also waited 17 months before her story was documented.
I think for so long all of us questioned, just because someone else wasn’t fully validating us, that we doubted what happened to us. I think that makes the healing process take longer.
Not only did the FBI not report my abuse, but when they eventually documented my report 17 months later, they made entirely false claims about what I said.
Nassar was accused of sexually abusing over 330 women and girls at USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University. He is serving 175 years in prison for sexually assaulting Athletes that were kept in his care.
Director of the FBI, Christopher Wray, told the Senate that punishing the agent who decided not to act on the investigation is inexcusable and also confirmed that the agent no longer works with the bureau. He also tendered his apology to everyone involved.
