Teen says he’s a Maine West hazing victim

A student who says he was the victim of a hazing incident at Maine West High School shared his story with WGN.

The young man’s identity was not revealed for TV cameras in order to protect his identity.

But he was one of four ball  players at Maine West who filed a lawsuit against coaches and staff for allegedly allowing team members to be beaten and sexually assaulted by older soccer players as part of hazing at the school.

Identified in the lawsuit as John Doe C, the victim has said he was assaulted twice by older soccer players in the summer of 2007.

That was the year he had successfully tried out for a spot on the Maine West varsity soccer team.

John Doe C alleges that coaches who were on campus during the hazing ritual, knew about the hazing but did nothing to stop it.

Though John Doe C stayed at Maine West after the assault, he said the attack ruined his high school experience.

He subsequently quit the soccer team and other sports activities.

    I don't understand why he didn't go get a bang-bang, and come back and do a Columbine — the guys that hazed him certainly deserved it (along with the so-called "teachers" that let it happen).

      So what would you have done "Chuck" — "gone and reported it to the Police", so how's that working out for the victims??

      btw: It's spelled "you're" — a contraction of "you are"; "your" is a possessive — like "it's your car".

      I would N E V E R even think of assaulting another person (except in Self-defense)

      AND (I think) if you stick your fingers (and foreign objects) into SOMEBODY ELSE'S RECTUM UNINVITED — you DESERVE TO HAVE YOUR GAWD DAMM HEAD BLOWN OFF (I didn't stutter).

      I'll bet you "Chuck" – are one of those Rabid anti-Gay people — but you apparently don't have much of a problem with same-sex R A P E (as long as it's done by Straight boys).

      I don't think it's "inappropriate" at all — and as I stated above: "I would N E V E R even think of assaulting another person (except in Self-defense)

      AND (I think) if you stick your fingers (and foreign objects) into SOMEBODY ELSE'S RECTUM UNINVITED — you DESERVE TO HAVE YOUR GAWD DAMM HEAD BLOWN OFF (I didn't stutter)".

      What do YOU think somebody who has stuck various things up YOUR BUTT-HOLE should get "Anonymous" — the "silly-little-slap-on-the-wrist" they're getting right now.

      And if one of the victims should end up Gay in 10 years (because of the induced Mental Psychosis) — HE WILL BE CONDEMNED as a "disgusting pervert" by about half this sh yt-sucking Planet.

      I think saying that his Rapists should be shot is little beans — for that poor girl Gang-raped and Murdered in India (and left for dead) — THE EARTH SHOULD BE V A P O R I Z E D.

      Have a nice day :-(

    Honestly…
    I feel like the comments to this article only proves that this should of been dealt with when the first accusation was made. You never know how someone is going to react to being sexually assulted… and if these kids had done something like that, no one could be upset with them because this is something that is sooooo traumatising.
    Thank goodness that it was never taken to such an extent… Honestly I think this is sad and I hope that these coaches and the school are punished for this kind of behavior…. the school should be held responsible…. they allowed this to continue for how long?
    They need to pay for therapy for these kids and pay pain and suffering…
