“Rot in Hell!”

By Lloyd the Idiot

That’s what was shouted at Jerry Sandusky this evening as he walked out of the Centre County courthouse after having been convicted of raping several young boys.

I shout it, too, and not only at Sandusky, but all those despicable Penn State coaches, janitors and administrators who enabled it for more than 15 years.

    Shout it as well at all of us who glorify football as though it were it godly.

  • That’s is your most pathetic comment ever, Stevens.

  • BlackOut says:

    Stevens, really? You can’t make a generalization connecting football with this.

    Now who I do think you can get a little jiggy about is Sandusky’s wife. Why isn’t she being charged?

  • BOEbullies says:

    And since Loudoun County has no enablers who turn away when laws are nullified by people who abuse their access to public power, we can call out the Penn State coaches and Jerry Sandusky’s wife.

  • G.Stone says:

    lloyd. Ever see that Movie, Little Nicky with Adam Sandler ?

    When Sandusky passes from this earth, he will spend everyday standing in line behind Hitler or some other evil bastard waiting for the devil to deliver a pineapple where the sun don’t shine.

  • G.Stone says:

    Stevens, that is just wierd.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    He is not going to be very popular in prison. Piece of shit.

  • Leej says:

    LI you said it all in those two sentence’s :-)

  • Independent voter says:

    He will be locked up for the rest of his life but they won’t put him in general population. He wouldn’t last long and his exit from this earth wouldn’t be pretty.

    This is a like the Catholic priests who were protected. The protectors are as guilty as the perpetrators. And I have a hard time believing Mrs. Sandusky didn’t know that something was going on in the home.

    The lawsuits are going to be rolling in and Penn State is going to be hit hard–just like the Catholic church. The saga is going to be in the news for a long time.

  • I thought it was odd that some of the moronic legal pundits on last night said something about the lawsuits bankrupting the university. Apparently, they don’t realize it’s part of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

    Get your checkbook out. Unfortunately, this is really one of those times when money for the victims is essentially meaningless.

  • I just wish they’d throw him into the general population – in prison or out – and let them do with him what they may.

  • BOEbullies says:

    “The protectors are as guilty as the perpetrators.”

    Child sexual abuse is the worst imaginable crime, but coverups of less egregious abuses of power happen right here in our home town every day.

    Investigate the Board of Equalization.

  • Lloyd says:

    BOE, save it more a more appropriate forum.

  • Dan says:

    “This is a like the Catholic priests who were protected. The protectors are as guilty as the perpetrators.”

    Independent voter is almost correct here. I would say that the protectors (who are also enablers) are even MORE guilty. At least the pedophiles are driven by their awful compulsions. Those who engaged in coverups and thereby made it possible for even more children to be victimized, made cold, heartless calculations to place their institutions above the protection of children.

    Joe Paterno, the other coaches who knew, the AD, the president of the university are all bigger scum than Sandusky. Paterno is dead, but the others should face criminal liability too. There are kids who wouldn’t have been victimized if these people had chosen to behave like decent human beings.

    What was mostly lost in all the attention paid to the Sandusky verdict was the very significant verdict in the trial of Monsignor Lynn in Philadelphia yesterday. This was the first trial of a member of the hierarchy that covered up the abuse of children and enabled that abuse to continue and to claim many more victims. It is pretty scandalous that it took this many years for even one of these evil men to be brought to trial. We can only hope that this felony conviction will put others on notice that if they continue to cover up criminal activity and fail to report it to the police that a jail cell may await them. Perhaps that will alter their behavior.

    The testimony and documentary evidence in Lynn’s trial made it pretty clear that Cardinal Bevilacqua was guilty of felonious activity too. Since he died in January it won’t be possible to indict him. But I would hope there will be more prosections of those higher up who participated in this criminal conspiracy. Not that Lynn shouldn’t do time. He should. But if he is the only one then justice most certainly will not have been served.

    Kudos to Philadelphia DA Seth Williams for prosecuting this case. There was huge pressure put on him not to do it. He deserves a lot of credit.

  • edmundburkenator says:

    “Perhaps that will alter their behavior.”

    Don’t count on it. There is something deeply broken in both the perpetrators and the enablers.

    I do think this will make some people on the periphery — those that could have made it hard for this predator to operate — rethink their odd loyalties. Perhaps it is those to whom you are referring.

    Exceptionally well put, Dan.

  • Leej says:

    perhaps the guy that killed his daughters molester is the real hero.

  • Leej says:

    you all want to hear a silly story back hear in Texas

    we need laughter

  • Ed Myers says:

    If only the outrage against sex abuse applied to coaches that physically abuse kids literally to death. Look at how many kids die from football injuries. “Do you like gladiator movies?”

    I’m with Stevens’ view that the football culture accepts abuse of kids so why the righteous indignation?

    I think the ick factor of homosexual sex drives this more than concern for the safety of kids.

  • BlackOut says:

    More football abuse:

  • Ed Myers says:

    Who should be punished in the Fairfax teacher case (see today’s wpost) who was falsely accused of sex abuse and had to spend money on defense? The point is that making or supporting unfounded accusations creates victims too. Our legal system is too inefficient and accusations have way of being a permanent blot on one’s reputation in the Internet age. Enabling vindictive accusations is as victimizing as averting one’s eyes to abuse. Both create life-long scars. I think we should err on the side of limiting children victims over adult victims but still, there got to be balance.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    That’s a horrible story too – just like the Ting Yi Oei case here in Loudoun, who got even more in legal fee compensation from Loudoun County than that teacher got from Fairfax.
