Before I go and tell you I told you so, this report is weak. There are no factual conclusions other than the police investigation by the Chula Vista Police department being closed. You do not know why it was closed, maybe they do not have jurisdiction or the victim would not cooperate. It does not say that that a crime was not commited.Before I go on my “I told you so” rant, I’d just like to know what you think should happen to Albion, the club, as a result of this incident (i.e. if you had the power of a judge, what would be your sentence for Albion?).
Also I’d like to know exactly what you think Albion families should do with their kids (i.e. should they leave the club because of this incident?).
Second, the report does not state that they looked at the text(s) or who told them the contents of the text(s). Sounds like their information only came from Albion. We don't even know if the victim(s) was aware of this report. The report makes no reference to the victim and it is very hard for me to believe that the family would go to the police if the text did not cross the line of appropriateness.
Third, how does anyone know that there are not multiple victims unless you have seen the text(s)? If the text to the one identified victim was about a "medical procedure" he was having, it sounds like grooming a victim to me. Albion should have reached out to their families in case others were also being groomed or were victims. They did nothing until February 14th and only in response to this site. They should have also reached out to families with girls that recently graduated to give them a warning.
The fact that Albion mentioned the girls age in their response to the news report is pathetic. They should know better if they truly care about protecting the identity of the victim.
Unless and until Albion can explain their lack of response to families and what exactly the text said (they can redact parts) I would not trust them. They have provided nice lip service and have shown an indifference to safety of their players.
