Forget the public relations nightmare - have fun with the civil lawsuits. Jerry Sandusky isn't the deep pockets here, Penn State is.

No he won't. If he's ill he''s going to a prison hospital if there's an appeal he'll have to fight it from prison. No judge is going to grant him bail now that he's been convicted of sex crimes against children.

I wonder if it will stop with him. Or will more people face charges for helping him cover it up.

Honestly, they might be up. Those who aren't at PSU wouldn't have probably bought them anyhow while certain PSU people will use it as a rallying cry and sell more to a certain base than normal.

I'm surprised no one has turned this into a football thread (i.e. does this help OSU, Pitt, or Rutgers more in recruiting)

Coco LaFemme: Christ, subtard, I've seen no less than 15 people on my Twitter timeline make the same hackneyed joke that was made when he was first arrested.

On to what's important, though. Sandusky will die in prison. That may not be the fate he deserves, but it's what he'll get. By that I mean, he really should be torn to pieces by wild dogs and then buried in a lime-lined pit, but that's not how we do things here.

sethstorm: vygramul: Yes, because doing something perfectly legal NEVER gets you smeared by the public.

My point was that Paterno was drummed out by the trustees as a sort of firewall against any action above him.


That is counter to what would happen. Because Paterno would have EVERY reason to burn them in revenge.

Rann Xerox: Altitude5280: The university has tried to move on. Despite the relentless stream of bad publicity, applications to Penn State rose more than 1 percent to a record 116,595 this year. The number of donors to the university will also increase: Penn State projects that, by the end of the month, it will have had a total of 190,000 donors within the last year, up more than 6,000 from the same period the previous year. (The financial totals from this year's donations are not yet known.) The number of applicants to the Penn State law school did fall nearly 30 percent, to 3,458 from 4,848, outpacing the national downturn in law school applications.Link

What about the football program?

WTFDYW: I hope that it doesn't come out that the jury heard about Matt Sanduskys readiness to testify that he had been molested also. We'll have a re-do if they did hear about it and said that it had an effect on their decision. You can bet your ass that the defense lawyers will be bugging the hell out of them for this tid bit. All it will take is for one juror to say that he/she heard about it.


Shut up. This is irrelevant. There will be no re do; the guy is a pedo and everyone knew it.

"If nothing else, we can continue our tenuous, hopeful belief in humankind.

Even in the dark, sick heart of central Pennsylvania, where for years the emotional and cultural strength of a college football program blinded otherwise normal people to horrible crimes, justice could be done.

Even a panel that included nine jurors with direct ties to Penn State University was able to see the monster among them and send him away, understanding the local and regional shame of the truth - that a community too reverent of football enabled, abetted and facilitated the serial rape of children.

Jerry Sandusky will die in prison.

The second wave of accusers lined up by the grand jury, now including Sandusky's adopted son, will probably stand down, as could the agents from the U.S. Justice Department lined up to prosecute Sandusky on Mann Act violations. The feds can now take proper aim at Graham Spanier, Gary Schultz, Tim Curley and the school. Time to recalibrate the gun-sights, choose targets and root out the cover-up.

A state's addiction to college football helped Jerry Sandusky rape more boys. Pennsylvanians' self-image as part of the church of Paterno-as-Pope clouded judgments, provided improper benefits of doubt, and will linger, properly, as a heavy cloud of shame.

Jerry Sandusky will die in prison.

This is cold, incomplete, early satisfaction.

Let's all hope the federal investigators follow the money trail, follow the emails, follow the secret files, follow every trail as far up as it goes. We have a long-missing DA, labyrinthine connections between Penn State football, the Second Mile, deep-pocketed donors, school officials, and current Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett. Joe Paterno made millions of personal dollars with Second-Mile-connected deals - real-estate, bottled-water, convenience stores. And that's just what has been chronicled by reporters. He, Spanier and Schultz had every venal reason to stay as quiet as possible for as long as any of them knew, whether 1994, 1998, 2001, or earlier.

Sandusky's charity-as-victim-farm was intertwined with Penn State football since 1977, and we now know from the sworn testimony of other longtime assistant coaches that it was common for boys to be showering in their midst. There's more than one sick bastard here, and more than one willfully ignorant adult.

Some will argue that this is closure, some kind of end to the story.

They are wrong. This opens the door for motivated authorities to continue to find the truth.

Let this be not the end, but the beginning: Every authority with every power of jurisdiction now has work to do. The words of former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis must be not just heeded, but actively acted upon.

"Sunlight is the best disinfectant," he said.

Shine it. Shine it brightly across Pennsylvania. Shine it on dirty deals, craven coaches and political pigs on the take. Shine it on stupid students who riot violently for bad reasons, compromised journalists who can't reconcile that their heroes are evil and national worshippers of Penn State sanctity who lack the guts to to confront painful facts.

Jerry Sandusky will die in prison.

We do not celebrate. We nod, we weep, and we ask that this only may start the powerful engines of justice in which we were raised to trust."

Forget the public relations nightmare - have fun with the civil lawsuits. Jerry Sandusky isn't the deep pockets here, Penn State is.


At the end of the day I really don't think the university should be held liable for anything. Sandusky, of course, the AD and any administrators who knew and covered it up, sure, but suing the school does nothing but reduce resources available to tens of thousands of students who had nothing to do with this and who are just trying to educate themselves for a better future.

Yea, I'm an attorney and I've appealed many cases. It has to make a material difference. If he would have been convicted anyway, doesn't matter.

That's what I'm wondering. Now that this trial is over and Sandusky's been convicted, does this now open the door for the civil suits claiming that there was institutional cover-up of crimes, and protection of the offender? I think Penn State is going to be on the hook for many many millions.

I think Sandusky just might enjoy his time in prison. Most of the other inmates will be younger than he and he'd probably take pleasure in being "forcibly" cornholed . Prison could be the best retirement facilty for a perverted freak like him.

There are many that I didn't have, I hardly had any contact with who I have helped in many, many ways."

You people trying to defend him like he's a human worthy of mercy are terrible.


I think there should be mercy. He is a sick man. He had an urge that is incompatible with civilized society, and sadly he was not able to suppress it. Yes, he needs to be locked away for life, to prevent him from hurting another kid. But what does him being raped accomplish? I guess I'm more of a utilitarian/less of a retributionist than most, but I have a big problem with people clamoring for gratuitous punishment.
