Boston Globe Skewers George Scarpelli in Hazing incident
986,682 @ 11:13 AM ALL-TIME VIEWS 986,597 @ 8:26 am The conclusion this editor draws from the Globe article is that Scarepelli was negligent and irresponsible...and that is an allegation. ___________________________
But the adults who were considered responsible for supervising the student-athletes, including Somerville mayor Joseph Curtatone, a camp organizer and chaperone, and George Scarpelli, the soccer coach, faced no disciplinary action. Both denied any wrongdoing, characterizing the assaults not as hazing but as “violent criminal acts’’ they could not have anticipated or prevented.
what was Scarepelli doing when the rape happened? That's what Medford residents want to know.
The Somerville saga is not uncommon, as numerous high school coaches in Massachusetts over the last 15 years have emerged from hazing attacks all but unscathed. While children have suffered life-altering sexual assaults in rituals perversely associated with team-building and their teammates have been tainted as criminal offenders, the adults purportedly responsible for them often have carried on with impunity, to the dismay of the victims and anti-hazing advocates.
