    Its not evil, people like thing called Sandusky should die in the most excruciating way someone could die. For me, I vote bleeding out from a castration anyone else. I am sure the victims' parents would PAY to see that thing die.

    Yet many are content to see these MULTIPLE crimes as somehow magically occuring in a total vacuum. I really believe that to be absolutely impossible. Certainly his wife, other children, paid associates and many "close friends" KNEW that this was going on. We, as a society, seem to feel that only the "prime" offender is 100% guilty, so all araound him get a free pass. Sandusky had LOTS of help and support in commiting these horrendous acts over decades, yet he alone gets 100% of the criminal blame, and we simply accept that as justice.

    My father and I agree that we shouldn't have stopped at Sandusky, you, me, and pretty much everyone else believes that his wife, Joe Paterno, and probably Penn St. knew a little of what was going on. I wish we could really know who was responsible, we just don't have the evidence to tie them to it.

    Don't have it or don't WANT it? You don't get convictions for that many offenses without witnesses, you charge any that SAW, yet did not report, these crimes. This is the sickest part of this story, IMHO. There is NO WAY that many were not aware of it, they just depended on this rich guy and his rich friends, it is a small town where Penn State is. After the story broke, it was EASY to get this conviction; yet we are to believe it was somehow impossible BEFORE, during decades of abuse?

    This was one of most lopsided trials.

    Mr Sandusky , here is your new shower room and your new shower mates..
    I wonder if they make something like this if he is found guilty?

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I agree totally with you...there are more than a few people that knew what he was doing...Id bet there are more pedophiles involved in his charity group. Why do you think he started a charity for kids..ACCESS all pedophiles slither into being around kids...be it boyscouts, charity, boys club...I believe there is no way Joe Paterno didnt KNOW and theres no way his wife didnt know what he was doing in the basement.
    Theres more than a couple of people that should go down for this...paterno was fired and hes now deceased...but there others

She allowed him to make every excuse as to why he was not there so often and accepted it.
    I seriously hope you did not just equate pedophilia to a gay affair.

    Because if you did, that speaks volumes about your desire to keep defending Joe Paterno.

    Looking hard under rocks are we?... The topic had to do with people being in denial about the actions of spouses. There was no equating pedophilia to a gay affair. Sorry, you will have to look elsewhere for someone to hate.

    As far as my "desire" to keep defending Paterno, that is because he was aware as so many people wonder whether he did or not, and took action because of it. There is no wondering. He knew and reported it to the president of PSU. Hardly the crony coverup so many wish to believe.

    Good. Just making sure.

    But he stopped there, and that is where he dropped the ball. When there is a case of child abuse under your supervision, direct or indirect, and it's clear that your supervisor won't do a thing even when you told him or her about it, you are not just morally but legally obligated to go to the authorities. Joe's cowardly decision to not tell the police almost certainly failed to prevent further abuses. I don't care what his legacy is--I lost all respect for Paterno when I found out he chose to enable a child predator.
