Jerry Sandusky, a former Defensive Coordinator at Penn State University, is about to go down as one of the most hated men in the history of sports.
And it has nothing to do with sports.
Sandusky is (allegedly) a child raping pervert who not only raped children, he raped helpless little boys who had come to his program, The Second Mile, seeking help. This psychopath actually formed the foundation to help “at risk” kids and then used it to feed his twisted desire to have sex with pre-teen boys. We are talking about the worst kind of person to ever walk the planet.
This is the kind of man who proves that the United States’ policy of no “cruel and unusual punishment” is far too lenient. This psychopath should be pinned to a wall and sliced with Exacto Blades while being sprayed with vinegar, broadcast live for free on TV & online. Then nursed back to health so it can be done again. And again. And again.
Sandusky is only 67, so I estimate he could be tortured for at least 20 years. And that still wouldn’t be enough to make up for what he has done. Just ask any of the 8 victims detailed in a 40 count indictment against him. However it may discourage other potential or current molesters and rapists from following Sandusky’s sick path. Humans respond to incentives, both positive and negative, and strict (and sometimes painful) punishments are the only way to truly reduce and eliminate crime. Especially this kind of crime where the helpless victims are manipulated and raped.
“This is a case about a sexual predator who used his position within the university and community to repeatedly prey on young boys,” state Attorney General Linda Kelly said Saturday.
Not only should Sandusky go down in flames, but everyone involved in this scandal should fry. Numerous grown men including legendary head football Coach Joe Paterno, Athletic Director Tim Curley and Vice President for Finance & Business Gary Schultz seemingly turned their backs when informed that Sandusky was raping and molesting helpless little boys. Worse off, they conspired to cover up the crimes by not reporting them to the authorities. How in the hell can they sleep at night?
This is one of the saddest, most shocking and most disgusting stories to ever rock the sports world. And it is going to forever tarnish the reputation of the winningest coach in NCAA Division I history. I don’t see how Paterno walks away from this. If it doesn’t get him fired (or force his resignation) it very well may kill him. A graduate student who was nearly 30 years old had personally informed Paterno that Sandusky was showering with and raping a little boy, and Paterno thought he did his duty by informing the Athletic Director, Tim Curley.
How can you sleep at night, Joe? You inform Curley and then go back to thinking about football? It’s not like some bonehead made these accusations… a respectable grown man personally informed you about a first hand witnessing of Sandusky’s wrath, and you didn’t have the brains to question why Sandusky wasn’t in any trouble after you reported it to the Athletic Director? Your hands are dirty and you should be ashamed of yourself. In a statement released by his son Scott, Paterno said “If this is true we were all fooled, along with scores of professionals trained in such things, and we grieve for the victims and their families. They are in our prayers.”
Prayers?! Does that help you sleep at night, Joe? Praying isn’t going to do a thing. You know what would have? Reporting the raping psychopath to the authorities like any decent human being with a sliver of common sense would have. Instead you stayed idle, allowing numerous other innocent boys to fall victim to Sandusky’s sick desires.
Curley and Schultz are just as guilty as Paterno, if not more. Both have since stepped down from their posts at Penn State and both are surely in a hell of a lot of trouble as details continue to emerge.
When the graduate student (and his father) reported seeing Sandusky sexually assault a naked boy, Curley and Schultz met with him but did nothing else to follow-up with his accusations.
“Despite a powerful eyewitness statement about the sexual assault of a child, this incident was not reported to any law enforcement or child protective agency, as required by Pennsylvania law,” state Attorney General Linda Kelly said.
Curley, obviously not a smart man, is now claiming that the student didn’t report sexual assault, however Curley admits that he barred Sandusky from bringing children onto campus after the report. Why ban Sandusky from anything if the student didn’t report something bad? That’s like saying, “I don’t care if you rape little boys, just don’t do it on campus.” Furthermore, Curley admits to informing university President Graham Spanier of the situation.
Spanier may be the only person who comes off more evil than Paterno, Curley and Schultz, as he has since been quoted as saying “I have known and worked daily with Tim (Curley) and Gary (Schultz) for more than 16 years. I have complete confidence in how they handled the allegations about a former university employee.”
University representatives released a statement from Spanier on Saturday calling the allegations against Sandusky “troubling” and adding that Curley and Schultz had his unconditional support.
Spanier predicted that Curley and Schultz will be exonerated.
Exonerated?! Are you kidding me? It’s almost as if Spanier also likes raping kids the way he is so nonchalantly defending the men who covered up Sandusky’s hideous crimes. It’s no surprise that Penn State called an emergency meeting of the board of trustees on Sunday after Spanier’s idiotic comments. Spanier’s hands certainly aren’t clean and hopefully the authorities are able to prove that he is as guilty as Curley & Schultz.
