Jerry Sandusky: What a great defensive coach for Penn State for all those years! . . Yeah, no one cares about that. People care about their children and their safety.
In my opinion, there is not a more heinous / outrageous crime than murder, but rape is damn close; especially rape of young children. The exact number of children he sexually abused is unknown, but, in my opinion, even if a person THINKS of sexually abusing a child, that person should be locked up. How this man was allowed to roam, lurk, and creep around freely for 12 years after he resigned from Penn State’s football coaching staff is beyond me.
Here is an interview between Bob Costas and Jerry Sandusky. The actual, full-length interview is about 10 minutes long, but I dont' think you really need to see more than this 30 seconds. This man deserves to be locked up for, without question, til he dies. It's a shame he's so old already. He was arrested in November 2011 and the case information swept the nation. Joe Paterno was wrong to keep this quiet for so long.
Joe Paterno was the head football coach of Penn State for 46 YEARS. He WAS Penn State. He knew everything going on in that organization. Joe Paterno plead the 5th the best way he could and . . Died. Too soon?
Here is the incredibly graphic grand jury report that came out in November 2011. If you're interested, this website highlights certain areas in the 23-page document that are just horrifying. So horrifying, in fact, that typing them in this blog would probably be unacceptable.
In the report, there are 8 victims. What I found most interesting in the report was the 8th victim. A janitor witnessed . . let's leave it at "a shower incident" but feared to report the incident because he thought he would lose his job. This janitor presently has dementia so he is unable to testify.
In the latest news that I found on ESPN.com, Jerry Sandusky is awaiting trial that will begin in May 2012. He is up for 52 criminal counts and prosecutors are claiming that he has sexually abused 10 boys in 15 years.
