"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."

Those of you who still have your heads up Paterno's ass, understand this. Regardless of whether you think he should have gone to the police with the information McQuery gave him, it is undeniable that he allowed Sandusky to continue to use his access to the Penn State football program to groom boys so he could molest them. Sandusky still had the run of the facility up until he was arrested.

Congrats, you are just like the rest of us. The problem is not that Penn Staters think Sandusky is guilty, it is that many I've seen put it all on him. Their focus is solely on Sandusky, overlooking Spanier, Schultz, Thomas Harmon, and of course Joe Paterno.

Just wait until the stadium is named for Paterno.

Paterno did go to the police when he was told about Sandusky's actions, and the police didn't do anything about it.

Oh, well, in that case that makes his inaction after that ok then.

Paterno wasn't in a law enforcement role, and he wasn't the president of the school or even in charge of the athletics department. Anything he did after reporting what he was told would have been either vigilante justice or beyond his role and responsibilities which could have endangered his position or opened up the university to civil action from Sandusky.

There are plenty of people who could have taken action that would have ended this earlier - the victims by going to the police earlier, the police by taking the accusations of the victims who did go forward seriously, and even the university administrators who likely heard enough reports to at least revoke Sandusky's privileges to use university grounds - but Paterno did what was withing his power, he heard a report second hand, and passed the information along. No one should be asked to throw their career away based on uncorroborated accusations.

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.

I don't wish rape on anyone, no matter what they've done. I've been through it; it's a hell that no one should have to live through, child or adult. So I'm with you on the "revenge rape" fantasies/fetish.

It's difficult to understand the defenders of Joe Paterno here.

I am confident that had Paterno been the sole witness to the incident in the shower, the world would never have known about it. He had no choice but to report it since an aide reported it to him. But his actions thereafter tell me that he had no interest in seeing the incident become public.

Why else would he fail to see it through? He cast a willfully blind eye, doing the minimum he could, glad that it blew over without involving his beloved football program. 

"Paterno, 85, told the Washington Post that the young aide who came to him in 2002 with a report that he had seen Jerry Sandusky allegedly fondling a boy in the lockerroom did not go into details.

"You know, he didn't want to get specific. And to be frank with you I don't know that it would have done any good, because I never heard of, of, rape and a man," Paterno said.

But even the few details that Paterno did hear baffled him.

"I didn't know which way to go," he said. "And rather than get in there and make a mistake ...."

At another point, Paterno said, "I didn't know exactly how to handle it and I was afraid to do something that might jeopardize what the university procedure was. So I backed away and turned it over to some other people, people I thought would have a little more expertise than I did. It didn't work out that way."

Source: ABC News

So Fark Joe Paterno.  I mean seriously. If you heard what he was told, why would you put yourself in the position of having to answer the question "whatever happened in that alleged incident you reported?" with "Uh, I dunno. I passed along the information"?   The only reason I can think of, other than sheer incompetence, is placing one's personal interests above those of the alleged victim.

So he was a great coach. Big deal.  As far as I am concerned, he failed as a human when it really counted.

The good news is that hopefully the victims can start their healing process and move on from this. They probably walk around with shame and guilt that isn't easily removed. Sandusky's family (outside of the wife I would guess) also needs to heal and deal with their denial that he could have done these "horrible" things.

I'm giving thanks for organizations like RAINN and Superheroes for Kids that help deal with the victims in the aftermath of this drama.

I'm not focusing effort on Sandusky - he's proven he's not worth mine.

Agreed. If we want someone to be repeatedly raped as part of their punishmen, we should codify it in our laws as such. A civilized society ought not to condone any vigilante justice, especially something as vile as rape.

Again, if you think child molesters should be raped repeatedly, then lobby for our politicians to change the constitution to allow rape to be a prescribed punishment. I, however, think we ought to prevent prisoners from raping other prisoners whenever possible.

Since when does Fark pull punches when it comes to jokes in poor taste?


Hey, I think I can field this one.

A few years back some of the female FARKers started complaining about the rape jokes on this site. Unlike jokes about black people, Drew actually seemed to give a damn and the ha ha woman got rapety rape jokes and headlines seemed to suddenly disappear. It was also around the time that Family Guy was coming under fire for their hideous rape jokes, particularly "Peter and the Bulll" and people were quickly drawing a co-relation to an uncaring, heartless FARK.

It also seems that several female FARKers had been victims of rape or child molestation, myself included, and it was pretty farked up to have to come to a place that was supposed to be fun and be reminded of that fact.

And now that I think about it, and fark me for being so damned slow - considering the Catholic Church Scandal, Prostestant Preachers Against teh Ghey, Hands-on School Teachers (male & female), Republicans in the Closet with Congressional Pages and whoever else they can get their hands on, the tragedy that was Bill Zellers, and now this latest Jerry Sandusky scandal, I'm thinking a lot of male FARKers have spent a lot of time either forcefully getting choked by a dick shoved down their throat or forcibly raped, possibly while others heard and did nothing to save them.

And if you find that description overdone, well the reality is no great shakes either: that a lot of us, female and male, have been sexually assaulted and making fun of it - well just isn't farking funny.

There's a difference between tasteless and heartless - and for once it seems, this site finally Drew a line in the sand.

I, for one, am mildly grateful.

Maybe if I was an orphan with no close family ties, and if I was as much of a monster as the creep who raped me when I was a child. Thankfully I'm not.

Understood.


The fact that I've actually, seriously weighed the pros and cons of killing the man who raped me, when at heart I'm the most gentle, peaceful kind-hearted person you'd ever meet - that's just one more terrible impact that the molester has had on my life.

I find it interesting that someone is finally breaking out the religion language. The people in this thread most blaming Paterno for and the surrounding culture for treating him like a "God" are themselves treating Paterno like a God too. Its a rare sight to see projection this thoroughly documented. If you want people to stop treating sports and sports coaches like Gods, you'll have to stop ascribing omnipotence, omniscience and omnibenevolence to all of them yourself too. Paterno was not the unversity President, Provost, HR director, or Penn State policy maker concerning sexual harassment. All of those offices I just named are occupied by other locally powerful people with their own agendas who aren't cowed by football coaches, be they Joe Paterno or Barry Switzer. Best to remember that. There is still a lot of investigating to do and I dare say that few enough of the facts and names have come out. There will be time to assign appropriate blame to dead people. Best to stop treating them like Gods right now.

Gyrfalcon: There is NO evidence that Paterno knew it was ongoing; and I hate to tell you, but no police agency will investigate a closed case based on someone returning and saying he knew about a past incident and why aren't they doing more about it? People keep saying Paterno "must have known," but why? People often don't know there is molestation going on in their own homes when it is their partner attacking their child. If a father can rape his daughter and the mother is unaware of it, why should a coach have any more knowledge of what his assistant coaches are doing?


I can answer this one. My parent were houseparents in a children's home, so I grew up around lots of foster brothers and sisters. Within the organization my parents worked for, there were occasional accusations of sexual impropriety - although never any leveled against my father. The first time any person in the organization had an accusation against them, they were immediately suspended with pay while an investigation took place. Assuming the investigation deemed that no improper action occurred, the person was put back into their position, with one change - they were never allowed to be alone with that child ever, ever again, under penalty of termination. Repeated accusations, even those deemed to be without merit, resulted in a change of job responsibilities in which an individual was no longer allowed to be alone with any child.

As the boss, Paterno should have at least asked a few questions, and probably said something along the lines of "Jerry, I don't think you need to be showering with the little boys here anymore." He could not have prevented the abuse which occurred outside of his domain, but at Penn State, he was God and it is not unfair to expect him to be omnipotent instead of just all-powerful.

I'm not trying to be an ass and I'm generally curious, but what rule in the NCAA rule book would allow the death penalty. As much as you want to say 'They harbored a convicted pedophile!', there has to be something in the books.

They could, I suppose, let it fall under "failure to maintain institutional control," which really wasn't conceived for situations like this. Usually, that applies where the coaches, AD, etc. are either complicit or willfully ignorant of repeated violations (USC in the Reggie Bush case, for example). If ever there was a more egregious example of failure to maintain institutional control, this has to be it. If the feds start poking around and uncover anything remotely like an ongoing conspiracy to conceal the scandal - and they could because Penn State receives federal funds - the NCAA might have to strongly consider booting Penn State. I hope this happens. That program should be shut down. This is what happens when fervor for college football and the cult around a winning coach overtake common human decency.


Yeah, I've got to weigh "allowed a star athlete to make some extra cash on the side by signing autographs" against "allowed repeated, institutional child sex abuse" and say one is a leeeetle bit worse than the other.

Sandusky being convicted is not the surprise, nor does it signal the end of this. This is just the beginning. The long history of cover-up that exists at every single level of the Penn State faculty and administration will be brought to light over the coming months / years.

I didn't know about the Gricar fellow. I suspect his bizarre decision not to prosecute and his very suspicious disappearance will be the linchpin in a the bigger coverup scandal that will inevitably unravel.

From the timeline:

Ray Gricar, the former district attorney who chose not to prosecute Sandusky in 1998, disappears. The circumstances are murky: his car is found abandoned, his laptop is recovered months later in a river without a hard drive and his body is never found.

This Penn Stater has been saying that Jerry should have been guilty since DAY ONE.

Congrats, you are just like the rest of us. The problem is not that Penn Staters think Sandusky is guilty, it is that many I've seen put it all on him. Their focus is solely on Sandusky, overlooking Spanier, Schultz, Thomas Harmon, and of course Joe Paterno.

Just wait until the stadium is named for Paterno.

Paterno did go to the police when he was told about Sandusky's actions, and the police didn't do anything about it.

Oh, well, in that case that makes his inaction after that ok then.

Paterno wasn't in a law enforcement role, and he wasn't the president of the school or even in charge of the athletics department. Anything he did after reporting what he was told would have been either vigilante justice or beyond his role and responsibilities which could have endangered his position or opened up the university to civil action from Sandusky.

There are plenty of people who could have taken action that would have ended this earlier - the victims by going to the police earlier, the police by taking the accusations of the victims who did go forward seriously, and even the university administrators who likely heard enough reports to at least revoke Sandusky's privileges to use university grounds - but Paterno did what was withing his power, he heard a report second hand, and passed the information along. No one should be asked to throw their career away based on uncorroborated accusations.

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.

She should be jailed as an accessory if it can be proven. It's a shame that it can't. A real big shame.


This is were it gets murky, Sandusky seems to be a manipulative sociopath, which is why he was able to get away with it so long.

He's one of the few "smart" pedophiles (90% of pedophiles have below 100 IQs).

If anyone watched the Anderson Cooper video with the Sandusky's creepy lawyer (knocked up a 16 year old employee) claiming that Matt "had a history of Mental Health issues" and a bunch of other excuses to undermine his testimony.

Maybe Sandusky has been using this line the whole time and is why he targeted "at risk youth".

My grandmother allowed my mother to be raped by her (my mother's) stepfather. We know she knew because she was in the same bed he shared with my grandmother.
My mother was somehow able to forgive her for allowing that to happen, but I never did. I truly wish I believed in Hell so I would know that right now some demon is, and will continue, shoving his red hot poker dick up her ass for eternity.

the only psychological abuse would be that coming from her. a little child screaming for help in the basement and she ignores it. nah. just like all the teacher stories coming out helps to bury the old saw that women could never be pedophiles and/or could never take advantage of their position of authority to statutory rape kids..................... women can be willing participants and willing spectators in these sorts of crimes.

just like the woman who helped hold the girl in the box for seven years, helped kidnap her in the first place.

Sorry, but they will. Less because of the rape thingy than because he's just too high-profile to place in GP. Also because of his age. He's not going to any kind of supermax PMITA prison. He'll be going someplace for geriatric prisoners.


He'll probably be held in protective custody at the state penitentiary. He won't be raped, but his life will be insufferably boring. He'll be kept in his cell 23 hours a day. He'll have very few comforts. He might--might-- get a TV or a radio, and the occasional old book with missing pages to read. And when he's allowed out, he'll be allowed into a bare concrete room only slightly larger than his cell. He'll also get to leave once a week for a shower, alone. On the walk to his shower, he'll be in handcuffs and leg irons, and be told to stay on the solid yellow line the whole way there and back. If his family is supportive, they might even bring him some soap.

I know it's hard for most people to relate to, but seriously, people go crazy in long term protective custody. And no, I'm not speaking figuratively. I mean people go really crazy, developing severe mental disorders as a result.

Yeah, he was banned from bringing kids around. That is a hell of a sanction. "Don't molest children on the premises". PSU is hard-core.


Does your boss swing by your house to make sure you're not raping kids? Is that even legal for them to do that, just stop by private residences unannounced?

Sandusky worked for Penn State, there was an alleged incident, the police declined to pursue it. Penn State, a large university with over 100,000 people or more to deal with daily, bars Sandusky from being on their property with kids to prevent another allegation.

Let's say they fired him. Wrongful termination suit. Let's say they call him a pedo. Slander suit. Let's say they follow him home. Harassment suit.

You seem to have difficulty grasping a very simple concept: NOBODY KNEW HE WAS RAPING KIDS. There was no evidence and only one half-hearted allegation that was reported and investigated and found wanting.

Sandusky didn't stick a toddler on his dick to keep it warm in winter on his way to work in the mornings. He wasn't cruising around with a bunch of pre-schoolers in a van painted "Free Candy" (although this is close to what really happened and that's why he should rot) He just went to work without incident. There was no reason for anyone but the initial investigators to suspect anything was wrong at the time.

Could they have done more? Yes. But so could you. Why aren't you in the locker room right now making sure there's not another tickle monster lurking at your local university? Why aren't you in the park preventing pedos from absconding with the yoots? Why don't you know where every undiscovered pedo is at all times? Because there's no evidence.

The mob vengeance mentality is part of the reason victims stay silent. Hell it probably influenced Matt Sandusky to stay silent so long. I know several rape victims who would not come forward because they didn't want to hurt the people associated with the rapist. It makes the crime all the more hurtful, and trolls who are riding the highs of the vengeance tide are literally making it worse for the victims.

You ought to be ashamed of yourself for posting something so stupid. What you mistake as a vengeance high is actually justice, disinfecting sunlight FINALLY being shone onto the infected Happy Valley. Penn State, through Spanier, Schultz, Paterno and likely others, had the chance to prevent some of these rapes. I guarantee you that if you ask a victim if he/she wishes someone had prevented the rape the answer will always be "yes".

It is repulsive to see someone try to halt justice in the name of further injury to the victims. Insane.


What the fark are you talking about?

It is a serious issue that people won't come forward with evidence or when witnessing warning signs because they are afraid that they might be wrong, or that the fallout of the trial will cause harm to others that the victim cares about.

Many children are afraid report abuse because of the fear of what will happen to their families, and many people will ignore obvious warning signs because investigating those warning signs can be too public.

If you don't think that people being afraid to act or report due to vigilantism is a problem then you need to get your head examined.

Most gay people aren't pedophiles just like most straight people aren't pedophiles. Many pedophiles seem to have a preferred gender for their victims, so it's probably fair to say someone is a 'gay pedophile' if their preference is for same-sex victims. It isn't fair to say that being gay makes one more likely to be a pedophile or otherwise criminally sexually deviant.

Frothing at the mouth hoping he dies in prison doesn't solve the problem, nor is it something I necessarily think Sandusky *truly* deserves. The real criminals are the enablers and the guys who covered up his actions to protect their careers and/or fortunes.

Oh, calm down. Of course we do. But you realize that rape is the most OVER-reported and UNDER-reported crime going, and police have a duty to uphold the law. That includes presuming people are innocent unless proven guilty. Anyone who "knows something" has a duty to report, and police have a duty to investigate. Both of these were done, and the first time around the police decided Sandusky wasn't guilty of anything.

There is NO evidence that Paterno knew it was ongoing; and I hate to tell you, but no police agency will investigate a closed case based on someone returning and saying he knew about a past incident and why aren't they doing more about it? People keep saying Paterno "must have known," but why? People often don't know there is molestation going on in their own homes when it is their partner attacking their child. If a father can rape his daughter and the mother is unaware of it, why should a coach have any more knowledge of what his assistant coaches are doing?

Now if that sounds unreasonable, consider this: Anyone can make an allegation of "child molestation" in this day and age, regardless of how truthful or untruthful it is. And presuming people guilty of even this most heinous of crimes leads to situations like I handled today, where a mom--reasonably or not--accused a babysitter of molesting her child. When the police closed the case, mom took it on herself to notify the entire neighborhood of her suspicions. She "knew something" and advised the authorities and they determined there was no grounds to pursue the case. Ruining another person's life is easy, but reassembling it is very hard. You can't just say "BUT THE CHILDREN" based on someone's "knowing something." This person did something, and now may have tainted any future case because she contaminated the potential witnesses.

So blaming someone for not doing something MORE after the police said "We find no grounds for arrest" is calling for crazy acts like the above, at best, or vigilante justice at worst. While I appreciate the need to keep kids from getting attacked, we also need to remember the McMartin Preschool case and its progeny--lives ruined for no reason because someone "knew something."

Dude, this happened at Paterno's job. Where he was the boss. He was told about it. He didn't even bother asking Sandusky about it, nor did he bother notifying the cops. He allowed it to continue. I'm not saying he approved of it, but he was the boss, and it happened on his watch. And kept happening.

There are plenty of gay people who are married. There are plenty of pedophiles who target the opposite sex.

Most gay people aren't pedophiles just like most straight people aren't pedophiles. Many pedophiles seem to have a preferred gender for their victims, so it's probably fair to say someone is a 'gay pedophile' if their preference is for same-sex victims. It isn't fair to say that being gay makes one more likely to be a pedophile or otherwise criminally sexually deviant.

They could, I suppose, let it fall under "failure to maintain institutional control," which really wasn't conceived for situations like this. Usually, that applies where the coaches, AD, etc. are either complicit or willfully ignorant of repeated violations (USC in the Reggie Bush case, for example). If ever there was a more egregious example of failure to maintain institutional control, this has to be it. If the feds start poking around and uncover anything remotely like an ongoing conspiracy to conceal the scandal - and they could because Penn State receives federal funds - the NCAA might have to strongly consider booting Penn State. I hope this happens. That program should be shut down. This is what happens when fervor for college football and the cult around a winning coach overtake common human decency.

What kids?


He was a COLLEGE football coach. He was responsible for a bunch of college football things. One staff member made an accusation about another in vague terms and he reported it to the police who did nothing.


If I say "Sabyen91 sells white babies to Mexico." to Drew, he tells the police, and the police find out that of course Sabyen91 is actually a really great person who doesn't do anything illegal, because you are, then I never say anything to Drew again, it really Drew's job to climb to the top of Mr Derp and wave his flag forever until you're arrested? Is it even moral to do so? NO!

Your hindsight is out of temporal whack. Just because someone is a criminal doesn't mean there's any reason to suspect them before they're discovered. As such, when the police say "It's not a crime." it's not a crime.

Second hand allegations are often false. You're not supposed to stick to them forever. If the investigation turns up zilch, it's the investigators' problem, not the person who sparked the investigation's problem.

Just wait until the stadium is named for Paterno.


I've been waiting for this to hit Spanier and Schultz and such from the start. Sandusky was a done deal from day 1. The rest of them need to burn. I've been trying to mostly withhold judgement on Paterno until the details from THEIR trials come to light. I do think that it's telling that the emails which NBC obtained and discussed recently had Spanier, Schultz, and a few other folks discussing actively covering it up....and Paterno's name was nowhere to be found on it. He should have obviously resigned from his post simply to due to association (not arguing blame, but it happened under his watch so he did bear some degree of responsibility for it even if it's only 'doing what he was supposed to do, which in this case due to the actions of others was not enough'), but I can't help but hope that the results from the other trials will show what those emails imply - that the people he went to with what he knew actively kept the truth from him because they knew he wouldn't be party to something like what they were pulling.

No, he didn't. He was told that Sandusky's keys were taken from him. There isn't any evidence that Joe knew that Sandusky was still using the showers.
