We have all heard about how repulsive and noxious the former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar is.

Moreover, I am more than 100% sure that no human being has shown a bit of sympathy knowing the fact that he is going to rot in prison.

Amen.

Judge Janice K. Cunningham stated that more than 260 young women and girls came forward stating they were abused by Dr. Nassar under the guise of medical treatment during Nassar’s first hearing in Eaton County Circuit Court in Charlotte, Mich.

Those were Nassar’s final strikes that led him to be behind bars for the rest of his life.

According to the New York Times, “more than 150 young women and teenagers were done facing Nassar during a seven-day hearing in Ingham County Circuit Court in Lansing, where he was found guilty in November to seven counts of sexual assault.”

Nassar has been given a 60-year sentence for child pornography and 40 to 175 years for the sexual abuse charges in Ingham County.

After listening to his victims and their families describe how he affected them by what he did, Nassar came to the courtroom attempting to apologize, saying, “There are no words that can describe the depth and breadth of how sorry I am for what has occurred.”

With such a brazen presumption, Nassar has written a letter to justify what he committed was legitimate.

“I do not think a normal person would do what he did,” said Andrea Carson, a freshman at Radford University. “He is such an animal; he deserves everything he gets.”

Judge Rosemarie Aquilina speaks from Nassar’s complaint, “I was a good doctor because my treatments worked, and those patients that are now speaking out were the same ones that praised and came back over and over, and referred family and friends to see me.” It goes on to say that, “the media convinced them that everything I did was wrong and bad. They feel I broke their trust.”

“Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. It is just a complete nightmare,” Aquilina further read.

“I could not believe that anybody could be that filthy,” said Amanda Roger, a Radford University student. “I honestly don’t know how the victims will pass through this, he devastated them, and I really hope he would [rot] in prison.”

I still can’t process the fact that he kept harassing women and girls for years; people like Nassar should be executed. They just don’t deserve to share life with human beings.

When I watched the victim’s giving their statements describing what he did to them, I had mixed feelings. I was disgusted and felt extremely bad for those girls and women, but I was also so proud that those young athletes are finally deciding to speak up.

I admired every single lady who came out and spoke up about it. It takes much courage to emerge about what happened.

It is not easy whatsoever, those ladies may have been humiliated by such a sick filthy person like Nassar, but they sure did earn all of our support and respect by speaking up for them and gave up the terror that Nassar has caused.
