Sandusky Convicted on 45 of 48 Counts

Seriously?  They found a couple of counts where he was NOT guilty?  Well anyway, they put a stop to him.  Open thread.

Ken Lay was convicted but died of a heart attack before he could be sentenced to spend the rest of his rotten, evil life in prison. Let’s hope Sandusky doesn’t likewise get to escape his rightful due.

Frank: And because he died before being sentenced, Lay was essentially “unconvicted,” ie, he died with a clean record. One of those legal quirks…

The right verdict, but it still won’t bring back those mens’ childhoods. There should be a special hell for people who abuse children.

J: Sandusky’s “special hell” is just around the corner.  Something tells me he won’t be so anxious to linger in the shower anymore.

I’d say Penn State’s football program deserves the Death Penalty for its failure to stop it sooner and for covering it up.  I don’t even think they’ve been hit with anything like Bowl Bans or scholarship limits.

But instead we’ll get a bunch of stories about how a Penn State win OVER Ohio U. on opening day will help the University “get past” the Sandusky scandal.

And what of Mrs. S?  Was she really that naive, or was she selectively oblivious?

I’m having a hard time figuring out Dottie Sandusky’s level of awareness, but it strikes me that when she testified about when she saw of the victims, that she sounds like she’s running down competitors for Jerry Sandusky’s attention:

Accuser 4 was demanding and conniving, Dottie Sandusky testified Tuesday. “He wanted his way and he did not listen a whole lot.”

Last week, Accuser 4 testified that Jerry Sandusky attempted to molest him, but Dottie Sandusky walked in and interrupted them. She said Tuesday that she remembered the alleged incident differently. “They were just standing in the little hallway. They had clothes on,” she said.

Accuser 4 and her husband were arguing about a luncheon the youth had initially agreed to attend, then suddenly declined, she said. “Jerry was very upset ... Jerry was yelling. I knew Jerry was mad. It was just the way he looked, and he said, ‘We did this for you. You got to do this’,” Sandusky said.

She described Accuser 9 as a charmer. “He knew what to say, when to say it,” she said.

I lean towards “selectively oblivious” in that she knew but figured her job wasn’t to know. She “heard lots of noise” from the basement, but she didn’t see anything. Or didn’t see anything she didn’t want to, is more like it.
