Ferman: Strengthen Child Sex Abuse Reporting Law

Risa_FermanAs more information comes out about the Penn State child sex abuse scandal, Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Ferman (pictured here) says the law requiring people to report sex crimes against children to their supervisors is not enough. She says it should be strengthened to require both individual and institutional reporting of such crimes in the workplace.

“This is not instead of.  It’s in addition to.  There are reasons, I am sure, that the law was enacted that requires institutional reporting, but at the same time individuals should have the responsibility to protect kids.  We’re here as adults to protect children, not just our own but everybody’s, and if we see a child being harmed, if we are aware of a child being harmed, it seems to me we have not just the moral obligation, but we should have the legal obligation to do something about it.”

She says cases where a predator pulls a child off a playground are rare, and the molester is usually someone the child knows.

“Whether it’s relatives, teachers, coaches or just someone in a position of authority, there’s a process by which these predators, who are extremely manipulative, take advantage of the child, groom the child to get them used to the idea, and they don’t start off with a sexual act.  It culminates with a sexual act.”

Ferman says if people talk more about child sex abuse, instead of treating it as taboo, it increases the likelihood that the crimes will be reported and people will be held accountable.  She appeared Monday on the WNPV talk program Comment Please by Univest.

WNPV AM 1440 AM/FM Radio Has More Daily Listening than All Other Audio Combined Source: John Potter, SVP/Professional Development, RAB Edison Research released results of their Share of Ear study at the Radio and Internet Newsletter (RAIN) Summit in Indianapolis on Tuesday, which took place prior to the 2014 Radio Show. The goal was to show all radio listening from a single source. Included were AM/FM radio, Internet radio, SiriusXM, and other audio sources. This was a national study conducted in May, 2014, online and offline, of persons 13+, in both English and Spanish. The sample base was 2,096. The methodology was diary based where respondents logged listening including platform, device, Internet radio brand, location (car, home or other), and type of element. The study shows AM/FM radio commands over half of Americans' share of time spent listening to audio sources: AM/FM radio -- 52.1% Owned music (CD's, digital music files...) -- 20.3% Internet radio music (Pandora, Spotify...) -- 11.6% SiriusXM -- 7.7% TV music channels -- 5.2% Podcasts -- 1.7% Other -- 1.5% More importantly, the study broke out audio listening of radio services and found AM/FM radio increased its lead over other audio sources: AM/FM radio --75.3% Pandora -- 9.2% SiriusXM -- 11.1% Other Internet radio -- 4.4% Daily reach for AM/FM radio is similar to other studies showing nearly 3 out of 4 Americans listen to AM/FM every day: • AM/FM radio --72% • Owned music (CDs, digital music files...) -- 39% • Internet radio music (Pandora, Spotify...) -- 26% • SiriusXM -- 13% • TV music channels -- 11% • Podcasts -- 5% The full study is available for purchase from http://www.edisonresearch.com.
