On June 26, the day that Matt Sandusky's tape was leaked to a news station, Judge Cleland ordered Rominger and Amendola to give him a list of material they received from the prosecution and who they had shared it with. Rominger is appealing the order.
"The public backlash, Gillum said, was almost immediate and jarring. Within weeks, the boy's mother reported to state investigators that she was confronted in a Lock Haven business by an unhappy local resident who had learned that her son had been linked to the allegations triggering Sandusky's removal as a volunteer.
The child's identity spread rapidly through the community, the psychologist said, making him and his mother the target of harassment — and ultimately threats of harm — by locals upset that Sandusky had been dismissed from the school.
School officials did not respond to requests for comment."
What a vile evil "happy valley" empire Paterno built up!

You've been doing a great job of splitting the discussion out into various topic-specific threads, as evidenced by the decreased number of comments here the last few days. Thank you for that, and for keeping your conversations respectful and focused.
I will be closing this last general discussion thread later this evening, and it will take its place with its 11 sibling threads up above.
If there is further need for a thread to review and discuss events that happened at the trial, we can create one, but it will need to be topic-specific and you will be held to that standard when posting. (For example, "JS's Defense Team's Strategy" would be a better thread topic than "The Trial.")
Just a head's up, and thank you again!
You can hold back from the suffering of the world. You have free permission to do so and it is in accordance with your nature.
But perhaps this very holding back is the one suffering you could have avoided.
Be not simply good. Be good for something.
