Re: “Our View: Removal of paintings from USM show raises plenty of tough questions” (May 9):

At Cheverus High School, former teacher and coach Charles Malia’s name was removed from the school’s outdoor track when Malia admitted to sexually abusing students.

The abuse victims pleaded with Cheverus officials to acknowledge the gravity of the crimes by not honoring the individual who abused them when they were boys.

In Augusta, a bridge was renamed – a Catholic priest’s name was removed when a victim of child sexual abuse told the City Council about the disgusting things the priest did to him when he was a little boy.

Tough decisions? Not if it was your child who was raped.
