Not as much responsibility as you should assume for the "dumb statement of the thread" I wondered how long it would take the "blame the victim" chant to start. Do us all a favor and take your total lack of empathy and understanding someplace else!These allegations are most troubling. I would be more concerned for any of the 11 people who are under the age of 21. It appears Tarah was treated badly, but she is in her mid twenties and tolerated the abuse. Some responsibility must be put on her for continuing to stay in that situation.
Personally I wonder if USFS is going to have some issues. I can see a civil suit if they sent skaters to this coach and/or encouraged skaters to go to this abuser for coaching. Considering the impact USFS can have over a skater's career I think they may have an issue with a civil suit.
