A High School science teacher in New York City who won awards for his work coaching debate teams and was, by the way, the faculty adviser to the Bronx Science Gay-Straight Alliance, has been arrested on child pornography charges.
In a KIK conversation with another victim from upstate New York, Cruz allegedly wrote: “Can I keep asking things and asking for specific pix requests? I just want to make sure, the pics are between us, right?”
The 14-year-old boy sent a photo in response and wrote, “Sure but I still know why u need all these pics?”
Cruz said, “Can I be honest. That shirt sums up why you get to take my money. You know?”
The boy replied, “O yah lol”
Cruz wrote: “Pictures just have a huge impact on me. Seeing your feet and face and muscles and room and awards and stuff reinforce what a big deal you are.”
If he were a white Roman Catholic priest, this would be national news. But as a teacher, a Hispanic, and a gay, he is triple-covered by belonging to three protected classes. If he were a Roman Catholic, this would be a Church Scandal, indicative of a ‘culture of sexual abuse and tolerance for abusers.’ But no one would dare to suggest that the public school system or the gay community have any endemic problem with the sexual abuse of minors.
All those campaign contributions and loyalty to the progressive cause buy a lot of silence.
