It has been over six years since the Grand Jury report was released on Jerry Sandusky's sexual misconduct involving a minor. The damage and pain it caused for multiple families is immeasurable, and most are still feeling the effects of Sandusky taking advantage of children's innocence. 

But however painful it may be to see the conversations taking place about an HBO movie, it is an important discussion to have. Negligence and complacency allowed innocent children to be taken advantage of by a sexual predator. 

We need movies like this as a reminder that we cannot allow it to happen again.

Although Jerry Sandusky and others are behind bars for their involvement in the scandal, the pain from what they did or didn't do still remains. 

It's not enough the victims have to live with what happened every day. When the HBO film comes out, they have to relive those awful moments all over again and listen to all the discussion around something that has affected their lives deeply. A film should be made about this scandal, but not enough time has passed to allow the victims to cope with the fallout. 

This is too soon.
