An amazing and compelling video is slowly making its way into the mainstream media.
Last week, twenty-eight-year-old Jamie Carrillo garnered the courage to confront the California public school teacher who molested her years earlier starting at age 12 and continuing until she was around 20.
In the video, Carrillo telephones her abuser, Andrea Cardosa, who was serving as an assistant principal at a different high school, and Carrillo secretly records Cardosa admitting to the abuse.
[Note: The volume in the video is quite low, and thus we recommend turning up all available volume controls.]
Since the video became public, Cardosa resigned from her administrator position at the high school. It has also been reported that Cardosa was actually investigated for abuse back in 1999, when the abuse of Carrillo first began, but – unbelievably – she was "allowed to resign and continue working as an educator with no professional repercussions."
Because the school never let anyone know about the serious allegations against Cardosa, Cardosa was able to get hired as an assistant principal at another school. This form of cover-up in the public school system is widely known as "passing the trash."
Moreover, a second accuser has now reportedly come forward to allege abuse by Cardosa.
TheMediaReport.com salutes the brave Ms. Carrillo, and we hope that this dramatic video awakens the mainstream media to finally report on the pervasive abuse and cover-ups still happening today in our nation's public schools rather than continually recounting accusations against priests (half of whom are dead) about abuse alleged to have happened decades ago.
