    I just read the grand jury's report and it made me sick. In 2002 Sandusky was seen by a football team graduate assistant raping a child, who appeared to be about 10 years old, in the showers of the Penn State athletic facility. The graduate assistant called his dad, who told him to come home and later tell the football coach, Joe Paterno. Paterno was told, so he went to the Athletic Director. The AD, Curley, and university Vice Pres, Schultz, had meetings with the graduate assistant and with Paterno. NOBODY went to the police...not the graduate assistant, his dad, Paterno, Curley or Schultz. Only Curley and Schultz are in legal jeopardy because it appears they lied to the grand jury but as far as I'm concerned everybody who knew about it is culpable. Sandusky went on abusing kids for years after that.

    I have no doubt that Sandusky received very preferential treatment from Penn State staff because of his history at the university. He was even allowed continuing use of the Penn State facilities even though he was supposedly banned. The guy had proved he was a creep over and over and just got enabled. At least the school district he worked for cut their ties with him when their staff became aware of his suspicious behavior.

    Second Mile Foundation. At risk youth.

    Just came back to remove the link to this charitable orginization. The last thing at risk youth need is to be put at more risk.

    Just noting that Dottie Huck who is a member of Second Mile says we should help Mr. Sandusky. He made a mistake. As usual someone mentions all the good a pedophile has done as if it outweighs the seuxal and mental abuse of children.

    Dottie, a mistake is missing your alarm clock. A mistake doesn't ruin the lives of children and their families. A mistake doesn't have children up until adulthood doubting the dang human race thanks to people like this pedophile.

    "Jer's law". In his biography it's obvious this guy lied his tail off. "Touched". I don't plan to read it.

    How the heck did he get to adopt a child out of foster care from this orginization? As an adult none the less.

    I subscribe to Rivals sports forums. I just went to the Penn State forum. One father write that he sent his son to football camps put on by this predator twice and it was a good experience. I urged him to talk to his son. He could be a victim or a witness.

    I don't know how Joe Paterno avoided prosecution. He failed to report this to le, and allowed this guy further access to football facilities for years after, accompanied by young boys. This dates back to before 1998. That was when he was 1st investigated by the u, yet the grad assistant witnessed this in 2002, 4 years later.

    Disgusting story. You know what, though? When I read the details, I could have sworn that I'd read another story which was almost identical. I did some research and discovered that the other case concerns Edward Kramer, best known from Dragon Com. We have a thread:

    [ame="http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=149257"]Founder Of DragonCon Arrested In Motel With Boy Despite His Bad Spine - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community[/ame]


    It's so distressing that a man's position and reputation cause others to look away, when it's clear that something horrid is taking place. Where is their compassion for the children?

    Mr. Kramer has avoided prosecution for over a decade, pleading health problems. So many others knew just what was going on and deemed it not serious enough to report, very similar to Sandusky's case.

    SHAME on all these men. To stand by in silence while a child's life is destroyed.....

    Yes, it certainly does, on several levels.

    What is the President of Penn State doing? Trying to destroy his school backing these liars?

    If you were curious as to where Penn State’s top administrator stood on his athletic director’s impending arrest, wonder no longer.

    In a statement, PSU president Graham Spanier expressed unconditional support for AD Tim Curley as well as another top school official, who have both been charged with perjury and failure to report suspected sexual abuse of a minor. Former Nittany Lions assistant Jerry Sandusky was indicted by a grand jury Friday on 40 counts involving alleged sexual activity with children; Curley and PSU vice president for finance and business Gary Schultz testified in front of the grand jury last January and, per the charges, perjured themselves as well as failed to report suspected sexual abuse to the authorities.

    This is so disturbing.

    http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/c...d-tim-curley-charged-perjury-article-1.972670

    In the article above, it states a grad student witnessed Sandusky molesting a child in a locker room and went to the school authorities (with his father) and apparently no action was really taken. It makes me wonder why they didn't go directly to the police? Actually witnessing child abuse like that is definitely worthy of police involvement.

    In one of the Pennlive links posted in this thread, Ms. Dottie actually refers to it as a LITTLE mistake. I hope she is removed from the Board today.

    As someone who lives here, I can tell you that the high and mighty Penn State will do anything and everything to cover up a scandal. The grad assistant SHOULD have reported what he say to the State Police (not University Police) rather than Paterno right from the get go. But, sadly, that's not how things are done on campus. They have their own little world and do things their own way, because they can. Don't be surprised if Spanier gets some charges thrown his way here soon....
