He's going to win. His benefit is grandfathered in before the law change.

That said, it may be 3-4 years before it is settled and he may well die.

phalamir: The My Little Pony Killer: Can they let him into the general population so that he can be killed now, or are we waiting until Christmas for that?

Man, you must be Sandusky's little biatch. Make the worthless shiat suffer; letting someone kill him just means he gets to end it quick. I want the bastard to have the finest healthcare imaginable. And by that, I mean I want him to have access to the very best hospital in the world, be at the top of every possible transplant list, and have absurdly well-trained doctors on call 24/7. I want every possible life-saving procedure done on the sick farker. 30 years from now, I want him in the same cell, begging to die, and someone looking down at him saying "No".

Now, if you want to let him serve as the US military's non-lethal torture training dummy, then go for it; the fact that he can't give them useful information would be a plus - but always have top-flight medical care standing by to get him back up to fighting trim before the next session.

fiver5: beta_plus: Thanks Public Sector Unions!

The California Public School Teachers heartily support Sandusky in his efforts for justice.

/Teachers Unions: DO IT FOR THE KIDS!

Gee I am about the most anti-union guy you will meet, but I guess I got to agree with the commies here.

If you commit a crime, you should be punished by the criminal system (which can include seizure of assets). If you are civilly liable to someone, the court can order you to turn over some of you your assets to the harmed party.

How in the fark all does that suddenly mean automatic loss of pensions? Why should committing a crime make you automatically lose your pension (which is an asset that you directly or indirectly earned?)

It makes as much sense as saying "Oh you committed a felony so we are just going to take your house away. Not because the court ordered your restitution in the value of your home, but just since you own it, and you did something bad, you don't own it anymore, because it makes us feel good"

Oh wait I doesn't even know why I'm asking this hypothetical question. I already know the answer. It's because fark.com posters masturbate at the though of the government taking peoples money. It's what feeds you.


Actually, I'm about as right wing as it gets. The left has set up a system where the people they bribe, voters, sorry public sector workers are completely above the law. These outrageous clauses simply would not be tolerated by them anywhere else, but if it's one of their guys, then it's OK.

FinFangFark: JackieRabbit: I'm sorry, but his pension doesn't have a damned thing to do with his crimes. He earned it and it is his. Taking it away only hurts his family, who are innocent. THis whole Sandusky case if a cluster-fark. Penn State should be ashamed of its own behavior in the matter.

Well if by "earned" you mean he was let go early from his contract at Penn State b/c of the first allegations of showing with a boy that the DA (who vanished into thin air) was investigating, at a time when he was penned to be the next headcoach should Paterno retire. A pension he earned after that, when he was allowed on campus and in the facilities, to take boys to rape, several times, and use their resources to buy their silence by taking them to football games, and giving them gear?

Yeah. He should keep it. Just like Paterno's family should keep his pension.


He was tried and convicted in a court of law and will spend the rest of his life in jail. He was punished by a competent authority, having the jurisdiction to do so. Penn State has no such jurisdiction. They knew what he was up to, allowed it to happen, and then allowed him to retire. Now, for the sake of PR, they want to take his pension away. I say fark them. They are too guilty themselves to cast any stones at anyone.

did his sentence include forfeiture of assets?
did his contract stipulate that his pension would be forfeit upon conviction of ___________?

if no: pay the man.

Mock26: v2micca: Mock26: v2micca: lordjupiter: Warlordtrooper: Alright folks. The other day you talked about rape culture if you want to see what rape culture is just watch how many people cheer for sandusky to be raped


So wishing poetic justice on a CONVICTED RAPIST PEDO is the same as saying "she was asking for it"? Mmmm nah. Nice troll attempt, though.



Actually it kind of is. In both cases you are arguing that rape is a suitable and just punishment for an individual's misconduct, perceived or actual. Magnitude of the misconduct has no bearing. Rape should never be condoned as a valid punishment.

No, it should not. But when a convicted rapist goes to jail and gets raped by some of his fellow criminals, well, that is just hilarious!

I actually find it to be a sad indictment of our entire Penal system that institutionalization caries with it the implicit sentencing to repeat forced sodomy. Then, as a public, instead of reacting to this knowledge with horror, we trivialize or justify it. Third world nationals fear our prisons. That is not a point of pride or humor.

You do, of course, have citations to support your claim that third world nationals fear our prisons, right?

As for what happens to rapists and murderers and child molesters and other such scum, it is in fact a point of pride and a point of humor. Just sentencing them to jail is too lenient, and if there is a little bit of extra justice dished out by their fellow inmates, good for them.


You are aware of the Eighth Amendment, right? As others in this thread have noted, we have a justice system, not a revenge system. Mob mentality provides no relief for the victims and turns otherwise civil men into brutes.
 
2012-12-06 02:12:14 PM
Similar issue a while back up here in Canada regarding the (government funded) pension going to child-killer Clifford Olson. PM Harper was personally offended by it, and order the Minister of Human Resources (in charge of the pensions) to put forth legislation that suspends government payments to criminals serving time in jail. Be better if it went to pay for his incarceration or towards the victims, but at least they're not stockpiling it while getting food and shelter provided for them.

I work in the private sector. If I commit a felony tomorrow I don't automatically lose my 401K or my IRA "just because".

Loathsome toad might have a case. The california teachers union supports him 100%



As do members of congress no doubt;

Jesse Jackson, Jr. plea deal likely to include resignation, jail time

"At least some jail time is expected. Jackson, Jr.'s pension, which would pay out between $65,000 and $80,000 a year when he turns 62, is also part of the talks."

"D-Ill. Rostenkowski got 17 months in jail after pleading guilty to converting a congressional postage allowance into personal money, but was allowed to keep his $126,000-a-year pension for the rest of his life."
 
2012-12-06 02:31:17 PM

gshepnyc: He might have a case. I like that the law is expected to be free of passion. If he's shown to be entitled to it, loathesome though he may be, keeping it is a positive sign that our system works the way it's supposed to.

When the most detestable people can have their rights, civil and commercial, and their agreements, public and private successfully defended, that means you and I can, too.


You can successfully defend your rights if and only if you have the means to hire an attorney to vindicate them in court.

mittromneysdog: You can successfully defend your rights if and only if you have the means to hire an attorney to vindicate them in court.


This is the point of public attorneys. One can argue that they need better training -it's not even that hard to argue, really- but the basic system exists to deal with that.
 
2012-12-06 02:37:20 PM
If there was no legal way on the books stipulating he'd lose his pension then he keeps his pension. But as a personal asset for the civil suits I would imagine it's fair game, no? No matter how you slice it up he's gonna die alone in an orange jumpsuit, likely soon and likely poor. That's enough for me as I admit I have completely lost interest in this case. The dude who raped kids is in jail and he'll never get out. I knew none of the vics personally so I'm sort of done with it.
 
2012-12-06 02:44:01 PM

david_gaithersburg: If only he held a degree in puppetry, then he would be Fark acceptable.


I'm not sure if Fark found it "acceptable". I believe the victims in the puppeteer's case, were actively seeking older male sexual companionship in online chat rooms. Years later, some decided to sue, press charges and the like.

Sandusky, on the other hand, was an aggressor and prayed on kids that were not seeking to have a sexual relationship.

I guess that's why, but do carry on with the premise of hypocrisy, and your personal outrage caused by it. That's Fark, too.

See ya in the next "teacher farks student" thread.

His wife certainly doesn't deserve losing the pension benefits he earned.

The man is a piece of shiat, but that doesn't entitle the State to confiscate his property, especially when half of that property belongs to someone that hasn't been convicted or charged with any crime.

That's kind of a big drain on tax payer money, but that IS what he deserves. Keep him locked in solitary where the only human contact he gets is when the guard shoves his food through a slot in the door. Killing him would just shorten the time he suffers, and he might just like prison rape.

In general, as long as his assets are still in the pension plan (or any qualified retirement plan), they aren't touchable (google anti-assignment ERISA) as the money is technically still in the plan's hands and is protected, regardless of what acts he may have committed (unless it was due to dishonesty regarding plan assets). However, once he starts drawing on that pension, they become his assets as it's paid out and it's free game for civil suits. 

Funny thing about retirement plans, you could go out and kill a few people and the families couldn't touch your 401k...until you took the money out.

Came here to say this.
 
2012-12-06 03:14:35 PM
Well, he is a government employee.

It usually takes a lot more than multiple felonies for a government employee to lose his pension. It's just tax money, after all. It's not like anyone is paying for it.
 
2012-12-06 03:15:16 PM
If they do give him the pension back, they should first bill it for the legal fees he made the university spend.

So you wouldn't consider seizure of assets in addition to imprisonment when all other individuals convicted of similar crimes on face imprisonment to be outrageous? I sure do. The guy is a monster but the law is the same for all of us.You shouldn't be so quick to take the rights of others away because someday somehow your rights might get taken from you.

/taking his pension won't make him less of a scumbag or any of his victims less raped

Well I guess it's a good thing I feel 26 more years of not raping little kids in my future.

Just stop for two seconds and think about how you're defending a child rapist. Do you really think you have the high ground?


I think it's more along the lines of pointing out a shade of hypocrisy here on Fark, tbh. Yes, there is a difference, but let's not pretend Fark didn't trip over itself to defend the [Elmo puppeteer] guy at first, then to justify it after he came clean.

/Not defending or condemning either one
//Ok, condemning Sandusky

Some big, 300-pound prisoner named Bubba raping Jerry Sandusky does not violate the 8th Amendment, because the government did not order Bubba to rape him as a form of punishment! Sure, Bubba is breaking the law by raping Jerry (and should be tried of rape if caught), but I really do not care. Sandusky is scum and if he gets raped in prison then I will laugh my ass off when I hear the news. And if I were to ever meet him, I would laugh in his face. So long as the government is not violating the 8th Amendment then I really do not care if Sandusky gets raped by Bubba or by anyone else.

Pretty much correct, unless the plan already had a forfeiture protocol in place. In this case, the protocol was implemented after his enrollment (and termination) and can not be applied ex post facto. He gets to keep the money.
 
2012-12-06 04:23:38 PM

Alassra: If the money is his, then it should go to RAINN or divided equally to victims.

If the money isn't his, then it should go back into the pot for the general good.

I appreciate he "worked" for his pension - but I'm just not okay with this...


I hate that i have to actually say this... but no.

Let's be clear here, you know that saying that if we don't stand up for the rights of the worst among us, then we have no right to call ourselves a nation of laws.

Well this is the test of that .

If his contract does not have a clause in it to cover his misconduct... then I'm not okay with anyone taking anything away from him.

As much a piece of human offal as he is... as worthy of being shot in the head as he is... I cannot abide the idea that we can just ignore the law and take everything away from someone on a whim and without legal right.

Where does it stop if we do? Do we strip any criminal of his rights and property on a whim? What if we later find out he's innocent, who do we go after to make him whole again? What about the damages done to him or her in the meantime?

No, as much as it pains me, if he "earned" his pension and is legally entitled to it... we the public have no right whatsoever to ignore the law and just take from him. The school made millions... if he negotiated for a piece of that and they didn't think to provide some protection for themselves to allow them an out... they need to pay him... as distasteful and disgusting as it is. That's what contracts are for.

You don't think it would be outrageous to retroactively void a contract and take somebody's pension away? What the fark good are pensions then? Something something nose something face.
 
2012-12-06 04:59:50 PM

tnpir: Millennium: What does the contract say? If there isn't a clause that causes him to forfeit it on account of felony convictions, or something in the law to that effect, then I suppose he is entitled to it. Since he's a ward of the state, I assume the state has procedures for this sort of thing: they can hold the money in trust for the duration of his imprisonment, and then hand it over to him upon his release.

Presuming for a moment that this is a simple matter of contract law, there's really no "suppose" about it. Courts will interpret contracts on their face; if the contract doesn't speak to grounds for forfeiture, then essentially there are none. If it does speak to forfeiture, and "conviction of a felony" isn't among the grounds, then Sandusky gets his pension. However, I practice law in Texas, not Pennsylvania, so I don't know how their law may affect this.

Oh, and Sandusky should be locked into an outhouse and set on fire.


While its rolling down a hill, don't forget that part.

There are a shiat-ton of people having serious discussions on this matter in this thread. I am not one of them. I'm thinking we should donate his pension to whoever makes X-ray glasses or zebra stripe gum. At least that way the man farking small children will be hundreds of miles away from the victim at the time of the incident.

May he rot in the everlasting fires of what ever they have in PA that is hotter than a coal bin in Centraiia.

And keep on cheering for the pedo team, PSU freaks. None on yo demanded justice. You all milled about with your candles and ribbons, and shouted "WE ARE..." and kept on chugging beers and tossing cheerleaders out of windows and jacking off to your home team like it was the second coming or what not.
Ejaculating your vociferous "WE WON!!!" when you did nothing. You sat on sofas, wiping your Cheetoed hands on your crotches while memorizing statistics spoon fed to you by sponsors.
You aren't posting in this thread. You are lurking. Like a greasy old man in a van circling the school block trolling for kids.

Jerry will die in prison.
Penn State will never recover.
It will always be associated with child butt rape, just as the Catholic church is.

But allowing for private citizens to commit revenge crimes does violate the whole judicial branch's function. If Bubba can rape Sandusky, why can't he rape you and your momma while he's at it?

They should just make pedophila a killin' crime and execute them. Problem solved.

Yup, but maybe the WWE could allow the name to be used so long as the PPV is commentated by Bobby and the Gorilla with Cena as the ass-pounder treating Sandusky like one of his fat girls.

"Hey Gorilla know what I just discovered about John Cena?"

"What Brain?"

You are aware of the Eighth Amendment, right? As others in this thread have noted, we have a justice system, not a revenge system. Mob mentality provides no relief for the victims and turns otherwise civil men into brutes.

You are aware that the 8th Amendment applies only to the government, right? Some big, 300-pound prisoner named Bubba raping Jerry Sandusky does not violate the 8th Amendment, because the government did not order Bubba to rape him as a form of punishment! Sure, Bubba is ...

But allowing for private citizens to commit revenge crimes does violate the whole judicial branch's function. If Bubba can rape Sandusky, why can't he rape you and your momma while he's at it?

They should just make pedophila a killin' crime and execute them. Problem solved.


Who said anything about allowing private citizens to commit revenge crimes? I said in my post that if the fictional guy in my example was caught raping Sandusky then he should be put on trial for rape. I did not say that if found guilty his sentence should be extended, but I figured that that was a given. All I am saying is that I do not care if one incarcerated "private citizen" takes it upon himself to dish out some eye-for-an-eye justice on Sandusky. Seriously, I do not care.

As for myself and my mother being raped, well, Bubba is not able to do that because neither of us are in jail for molesting children so your question is kind of moot. I will say that if my brother or father were in jail for molesting children that I would not care if Bubba decided to rape them, too. I have worked with a few kids who were victims of sexual abuse and I have no sympathy for anyone who did this, and if it was done my a friend or relative I would cut them out of my life completely. I do not believe that blood is thicker than water.

I can see it now... ever increasingly small "crimes" will be use to take pensions, 401K's etc and so forth.

Traffic ticket? Lose your retirement savings. Caught with pot? Lose your pension.

Government, Wall Street, and various corporations will rejoice.

Yeah, because molesting how many children/teenagers is a "small crime."
