One reply on “Four Women Now Sue LAUSD Over Sexual Abuse Allegations at Cleveland High School”

  1. I attended Cleveland High Scool Humanities Magnet from 1993 to 1996, and, though I’m a firm believer the principle of innocent until proven guilty, seeing Chris Miller and Richard Coleman named on this list doesn’t surprise me AT ALL. They were both VERY friendly with A LOT of female students. I never suspected there was any sex going on between them (if it was an “open secret,” nobody ever let ME in on it!), but looking back? Oh, yeah. Doesn’t surprise me at all.
    And I took Chris Biron’s art history classes too. He was an ornery, abrasive guy, but clearly gay, and it doesn’t surprise me at all that he was paying boys to strip for him. And Bill Paden was my track team head coach! Hearing his story surprised me, but I admit, I didn’t know him that well, because I mostly trained under the assistant coach. I don’t know who Atkins and Shufelt are, they must have been after my time.
    Regardless, I GUARANTEE you, I at least know the “Jane Doe” pressing charges against Miller, if not all four of them. I admit, I’m kind of pissed that I’m only learning about all of this now. I haven’t given a thought to my high school teachers or classmates probably since before the dawn of this century. Suffice it to say, I’ve never even considered attending a reunion. But now, for the first time in 20 years or more, I regret not keeping in touch with anybody from high school!
