Description

In the gruelling world of elite gymnastics, Larry Nassar was seen by a lot of young athletes as a friendly face in tough times. As the USA Gymnastics National Medical Coordinator, he performed treatments on children as young as ten, for almost 30 years. 



And under cover of those treatments, he was routinely molesting hundreds of young girls for decades – sometimes multiple times a day, often with their parents sitting just metres away.



After multiple investigations, he seemed untouchable. But thanks to the bravery of his survivors – and the discovery of three external hard drives – the world saw him for what he really was: a calculated predator, with more victims than Bill Cosby, Jerry Sandusky and Harvey Weinstein combined. Hannah and Suruthi chart the biggest sexual abuse scandal in sports history.

Nobody Special

One thing to remember about American prisons is that child sex offenders are treated so horribly by the other prisoners. As in, having the same thing done to him that he did to others. The likelihood of him not dying from some unfortunate accident at some point is very low. I also believe (?) that he can be charged in every state he committed the crimes in on a local level. Should he ever be released law enforcement has that in their back pocket to put him back in potentially. Then there are the dads that would be waiting for him if he got out. Each willing to go to jail themselves for murder if they ever laid eyes on him again.
