Everybody has heard about the recent events that have happened at Penn State University involving Jerry Sandusky. These events and allegations are huge because not only were dozens of children involved, the football program and school decided to cover it up. Most people were outraged about this incident (and incidents in general) and not only blame Sandusky but blame the entire school for trying to brush this disgusting smear under the rug. My opinion is for the former and latter of the statement above.
Without a doubt I believe the ENTIRE school is at fault for this incident. Everyone who knew about it decided that trying to cover it up was a better solution than coming out with the story and allegations. They decided that the football program was better suited if the incident was covered up and forgotten about. This angers me the most. More and more nowadays we are seeing violations from college football programs either through recruiting, lying, or by blatantly disregarding the rules that they are contracted to follow. It comes to no surprise to me that Penn State’s football program covered this up to make themselves look better and to make sure they were not hurt through the NCAA. It makes me sick to see that college football programs think they are better than everybody else and rules do not apply to them.
I think it makes me even sicker to see that Penn State’s staff took advantage of children and instead of ousting Sandusky, decided to rob children of their childhood and of their lives. Blaming the school in no way exonerates that scumbag Sandusky. He deserves exactly what is going to happen to him. In my opinion he deserves the death penalty for what he did. Preying on innocent and defenseless children and lying about doing it warrants the death penalty in this case. Raping and molesting children is the lowest possible thing a human being can do. They deserve no treatment or rehabilitation; they deserve to rot in a prison cell until they get gassed or injected.
My opinion on this incident is strong and a lot stronger than most people’s. I think that the death penalty should be mandatory for sex offenders and sex offenders of children. Jerry Sandusky deserves to die for what he did and the way he ruined those children’s lives. Those children will never be the same and have never been the same ever since this happened. We can never let this happen again for the sake of society. A hit like this will take years to overcome and in the end lower level people will just get a slap on the wrist. We need to send a message now (death penalty) that this type of behavior will never be tolerated and that the consequences far outweigh anything that pedophiles think they deserve.
