Former Cadet Suing Valley Forge Military Academy Over Violent Abuse Allegations


FORECAST, COMING UP IN JUST A FEW. THANK YOU. EXCLUSIVE AT 6:00 DISTURBING ALLEGATIONS A FORMER CADET IS SUING VALLEY FORGE MILITARY ACADEMY. HE IS ACCUSING THE PREP SCHOOL HAVE LOOKING THE OTHER WAY WHILE HE WAS VIOLENTLY ABUSED DURING A HAZING RITUAL. FORMER CADET SPOKE ONLY TO OUR JOE HOLDEN AND JOINS US FROM CENTER CITY, JOE, GOOD EVENING REPORT REPORT UKEE, GOOD EVENING. LAWYER FOR THIS PLAINTIFF SAYS HIS CLIENT SUFFERED WAR TYPE CRIMES IN, FACT ONE INSTANCE IT ACE ALLEGED HE TRIED TO REPORT TO IT POLICE, BUT THE SCHOOL ALLEGEDLY PUT THE BRAKES ON THAT SAYING DON’T DO THAT, THE SUSPECT, HAS A PROMISING FUTURE FOR ONE STUDENT HE SAID SURVIVING WAS ABOUT COPING WITH DAILY HAZING, BULLYING, PHYSICAL, AND EVEN SEXUAL ABUSE. DID YOU FEAR FOR YOUR LIFE. YES 100 PERCENT. REPORTER: IN AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW ONE GRANTED ON THE CONDITION OF PRIVACY BECAUSE OF THE SENSITIVE NATURE OF THE CASE, JOHN DOE OPENED UP ABOUT HIS TIME IN VALLEY FORGE MILITARY ACADEMY. IT IS JUST VERY HARD TO SEE THAT FUTURE BECAUSE OF THE CHAOS THAT WAS GOING ON. REPORTER: PROMINENTLY MENTIONED IN THE LAWSUIT FILED IN THE COURT OF COMMON PLEAS WAS ACCUSATION OF TORTURE BY FELLOW CADETS AT PRESTIGIOUS RADNOR TOWNSHIP MILITARY SCHOOL. THERE IS IN QUESTION IN MY MINDED THAT WHAT HE EXPERIENCED WAS NOTHING SHORT OF TORTURE. REPORTER: AMONG CLAIMS HE WAS HELD DOWN, WATER BOARDED BY FELLOW CADETS. SOMETIMES I GET A LITTLE BIT OF TUNNEL VISION AND JUST MORE ONE THOUGHT LEADS TO ANOTHER ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED AND THEN I KIND OF GET FLASHBACKS OF EVERY SINGLE THING THAT HAPPENED THERE. REPORTER: IT IS ALSO ALLEGED HE WAS SUBJECTED TO A LONG STANDING HAZING PRACTICE WHERE A LACROSSE STICK WAS SHOVED IN HIS MOUTH AND THEN USED IN THE FAILED ATTEMPT TO SAD MYSELFED HIM. THEY CALLED IT TOOTHPASTE CONTINUING. THIS HEINOUS RITUAL, THAT THEY HAVE AT VALLEY FORGE CALLED TOOTHPASTE CONTINUING, THINGS THAT YOU WOULD NOT EXPECT TO SEES ANYWHERE BUT NOT AT AN INTERNATIONALLY RENOWNED MILITARY BOARDING SCHOOL. THEY TOOK ME TO A POINT WHERE I DIDN’T KNOW IF I COULD EVER LIKE STEP OUT INTO SOCIETY AGAIN BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, I WAS JUST CONSTANTLY THINKING OF WHAT HAPPENED TO ME. REPORTER: VALLEY FORGE SENT OUT THIS STATEMENT AND I READ QUOTING THIS INCIDENT WAS INVESTIGATED, REPORTED, HANDLED APPROPRIATELY IN ACCORD ACCORDANCE WITH APPROPRIATE LAW AND COOPERATION WITH LOCAL POLICE INCLUDING DISCIPLINE OF INVOLVED CADETS UP TO AND INCLUDING DISMISSAL. BACK IN 2017, WE BELIEVE THAT THE PARENTS INVOLVED, WERE SATISFIED, WITH OUR HANDLING OF THE SITUATION, WE ARE SURPRISED BY THIS POTENTIAL LAWSUIT, BUT STAND BEHIND OUR PROCESS AND CONCLUSIONS. THE MILITARY ACADEMY DECLINE FURTHER COMMENT. WE ARE LIVE FROM CENTER CITY,
