So, before I get to the hero, some backstory on the villain in this. Larry Nassar (former doctor for the USA Gymnastics team) is a real piece of shit and has already been sentenced to 60 years for child pornography back in December. But he is also a pedophile rapist scumbag with so many victims that Tuesday was only day fucking one of FOUR days of scheduled sentencing so all 98 of the victims that chose to make statements could read them in court. That's not 98 victims total, just 98 who chose to make statements. Who knows how many girls he actually abused throughout his life.

Under the guise of providing medically necessary treatment, Nassar instead abused many of his patients. He admitted in court to putting his finger into the vagina of patients in cases going back as far as 1998 -- including girls under the age of 13.

Attorney John Manly, who represents more than 100 victims in civil lawsuits, has argued that Nassar was supported in his abuse by institutions like USA Gymnastics.

One survivor in particular, Kyle Stephens, has had portions of her statement make the rounds on social and news media. She was Nassar's neighbor and her story is brutal yet uplifting. If you can make it through to the end (roughly 14 minutes) you will stand up and clap at the strength and integrity of this young woman. She's an American hero. True grit personified. I'd ask her to run for president in 2020, but she seems overqualified for for the position. Besides, she's already had a tough enough life and doesn't deserve the bullshit that comes along with that job.
