Family Terrorized as Michigan Teachers Support Colleague Who Molested Boy

Posted on | August 24, 2013 | 518 Comments

Former middle-school teacher Neal Erickson, 38, pleaded guilty in May to having sex with a boy beginning in 2006 — when the boy was a 14-year-old eighth-grader — until 2009. His fellow teachers in Ogemaw County, Michigan, supported Erickson, writing letters to the judge asking for a lenient sentence. Any parent would be horrified by the sentiments expressed, for example, by Rose City teacher Sally Campbell:

“Neal made a mistake. He allowed a mutual friendship to develop into much more. He realized his mistake and ended it years before someone anonymously sent something to the authorities which began this legal process. . . . Please also consider that this was a one-time relationship with only one student and ended long before being found out. Both parties have gone on with their lives.”

He molested a 14-year-old boy, ma’am. To call this “a one-time relationship” — words fail. A relationship? A middle-school teacher and a 14-year-old boy in a “relationship”? Are you insane?

The parents of the victim in this case were outraged to see Erickson’s fellow teachers supporting this confessed criminal pervert, whose molestation of their son caused horrible problems:

The victim’s mother also spoke prior to sentencing, telling Erickson he violated her son and caused a rift in the family. She said the family appeared happy on the outside, but on the inside, the home was a “battle zone.”
“We couldn’t figure out why (the victim) hated us,” she said. “He went after his father. There were physical fights.” . . .
“You were his teacher,” she said. “You were his mentor. You were his friend. And you violated him.”
She added the victim kept the sexual encounters a secret and suffered because of it.
“He kept all of this a secret, and he went through emotional pains,” she said.

Permit me to digress: Do you think there might be . . . oh, I don’t know, an agenda involved here? Do you think Neal Erickson’s fellow teachers would have supported him like this if he had carried on a secret three-year sexual affair with an underaged girl? I think not.

Because it was a gay thing, see, Neal Erickson has “rights,” just like Kaitlyn Hunt has a “right” to have lesbian sex with a 14-year-old.

Nobody in the gay-rights movement or the educational establishment wants to admit that this is what is going on, that they are making excuses for gay people to have sex with minors, but that’s what it’s really about. It’s a good thing Neal Erickson isn’t a Catholic priest, or else this might be an actual scandal. But I digress . . .

Thank God, Circuit Court Judge Michael Baumgartner disregarded the pleas for leniency and imposed a 15-30-year sentence:

After making a decision on the sentencing, Baumgartner said he could not believe people were supporting Erickson after the issue came to light.
“I’m appalled and ashamed that the community could rally around, in this case, you,” he said.
“What you did was a jab in the eye with a sharp stick to every parent who trusts a teacher,” Baumgartner added.

 The family of the victim has demanded that the teachers who supported criminal pervert Neal Erickson be fired, and have begun a petition drive to recall school board members who supported the criminal pervert. And guess what happened next?

A garage fire at John and Lori Janczewski’s house on Grandjean Road near Rose City destroyed the couple’s garage and melted the siding on their home early Saturday morning.
Lt. Melvin Matthews, post commander for the Michigan State Police Post in West Branch, said the fire is being ruled as arson. He said evidence gathered at the scene is being analyzed by the MSP crime lab, and new leads gathered since the incident occurred are being investigated.
The Janczewskis believe it was someone responding to their outspokenness against several West Branch-Rose City teachers and a board member, who they said publicly supported Neal Erickson, a former WB-RC teacher who recently pleaded guilty to first-degree criminal sexual conduct against the Janczewski’s son. . . .
John Janczewski said he doesn’t understand why someone would do something like this to his family.
“We don’t deserve this,” he said in tears. “We’re not a bad family. We’ve done nothing but stand up for our son, the victim. They could have killed my whole family. Whoever’s done this has no remorse. They have no soul.”
John Janczewski said he and his wife do not plan to stop. They are currently circulating petitions for the recall of WB-RC board member Mike Eagan.
“Whoever’s done this, we’re not going to quit,” he said. “We’re not giving up. We’re going to continue to fight, until the end.”

School teachers who are insane enough to support a criminal pervert are insane enough to commit any crime themselves.

Erica Ritz told the Janszewski family’s story Monday at The Blaze.

It’s time to wake up, America: Our country is now so close to the gates of Hell you can feel the heat and smell the brimstone.

    Translation: NARTH does not doe things that fits my narrative or beliefs, therefore they wist the truth to fit their Christo-Facist God Bag theories.

    You have a very high bar to climb if you wish to disprove their findings. Assuming, of course, you actually want the truth rather than something that just says what you want it to.

    Christie signed a fiat that says nothing about the facts. Reparative therapy works with people that want to change. Homosexuality is still a serious mental illness that can be treated, assuming they don’t want to just throw their sin in the face of God and rebell, which is the case with about 99% of homosexuals.

    Ah yes. A listing of links of the biased in an attempt to make me seem as though I’m just so out of the mainstream. The ad hominem at the end completes the pattern.

    I make my living from science and am required to do it daily. I’m right, or I don’t keep my job. It’s that simple. I recognized the links you post. I am far from the uniformed lackwit you mark your self as. The flat earthers are the people you listed, not NARTH.

    Trolling sites like this is certain not to win friends, but it will influence people to mark you as what you are. Since you are willfully obtuse I will translate for you.

    1. Your sites are not impressive
    2. They deal in science only to the extent it is conveneint for their narrative
    3. You are an idiot to expect some one like me to find your idiocy at all persuasive. You were given a chance to show how what the link I pointed to was wrong, and all you responded with was ad hominem.

    ow, go away and play in the sand box so the adults can relax and enjoy some intelligent conversation. If you want to think queers are utterly natural in the face of all the evidence, be my guest. But stay away from informed people as they will eat you alive, and this is one site you will lunch.

    Love how Christards pull things out of their asses to justify all the awkward elements in the Bible. You may deny it all you want but the fact of the matter is that ancient Jewish culture allowed polygamy and what you call “God’s model” is actually a modern invention.

    The pot calling the kettle black.
    OK, genius, show me evidence from a reputable secular source that supports your claims rather than just post a long-ass comment to insult me.
    I’ve seen more intelligent and refined preschoolers than the “adults” who post here.

    Why do some genetic males need to bugger other males and/or suckle at other males’ loins? Or females who attempt to pair bond with other females… I just don’t get how this can be normal or natural… I mean… I mean I can understand the male-female thing… Cuz, like, not one of us would be here to ponder on it without mum and dad, right? There simply must be a logical, scientific explanation for this state of affairs! Surely, the heteropatriarchy’s got nothing to do with it, right?

    Same reason why some have an extra chromosome, or are born without limbs, or can’t see certain colors, or can’t digest milk, or obsess over trivial things. It may not make sense, but nature’s unpredictable.

    1. I have no obligation to educate you.
    2. I have no intention of trying.
    3. You will reject anything that does not fit your narrative.
    4. I’m not in the habit of banging my head against brick walls for idiots that reject what has already been said out of hand because it doesn’t fit their narrative.
    If the truth is an insult, then that’s a personal problem. And the adults that post here just laugh at people like you. You’re a phony. Pure and undefiled.
    I won’t be wasting anymore time on you. You can now go back among the safety of fellow flat earthers.

    “(no accessories or options).”
    And none needed as they are aggressively misinformed and obnoxious in the base model.

  • Quartermaster

    But, but, _abe_ is so edumacated and wise. He wouldn’t mindlessly link to sources that support his narrative, now would he?
    He’s already paid me the ultimate compliment of “Christard.” He’s badly stuck on his postmodern myths and knows not what he speaks.

    Just parroting the progressive line. Unable to engage in critical thinking, a total stranger to logic.

    Your post in a nutshell: “I won’t bother providing evidence to support my assertions since no credible scientist would agree with my views.”
    Most of your arguments have been essentially “well, you’re stupid :P pbbt!” That’s not how your side is going to win debates.
