namatad: small children understand these things
Arkanaut: If you can't even testify in your defense in front of Bob Costas, what makes you think you could have done better in front of a jury?
IntertubeUser: The culture and the financial incentive that enabled Jerry Sandusky and the subsequent coverup still exists in Centre County. The NCAA needed to shut down Penn State's athletic program; instead, they compromised on justice and protecting children in order to not hurt the financial juggernaut that is Penn State football too much.This was clearly a matter where there should've been no compromise.
IAmRight: Well, he wasn't convicted of EVERY count, so maybe he wanted to get the full set.
mikaloyd: Thats one way for him to get out of punishment. Penn State would take him back with open arms if he can still coach.Hell they took back Lasaga with open arms and he isnt even out of prison for raping boys yet.

factoryconnection: Arkanaut: If you can't even testify in your defense in front of Bob Costas, what makes you think you could have done better in front of a jury?He could only have hurt himself, but we only see that because we're mostly sane. Predators like Sandusky have two features that would come into play in such a situation: charisma and narcissism. He is and always has been a charismatic, larger-than-life figure; that's how he and his ilk earn the trust of so many families while grooming victims. He could possibly use that to charm a jury. However, his narcissism that has carried him through rationalizing the fact that he's a serial child rapist all these years makes him think that any amount of charisma could salvage his case after the cauldrons of molten lead poured upon him by the explicit, consistent testimony of all those victims.huh... I have you farkied as rational human being, and sometimes im rightSo he thinks to himself "gosh if they could only have heard it from my point of view." No, Jerry, none of us sane people would ever want to hear that, and no one would certainly be able to process that into leniency.
