|Jerry Sandusky: the flags were there all along|
|Ray Gricar (Deadspin)|
Two additional points to ponder:
1. How do they appoint as interi coach someone who has been there for 33 years. Are we to believ that he had NO knowledge of the previosu incidents, had heard no rumors, had never seen Sandusky acting odd around kids? He's just as culpable.
2. The social pathology of pedophiles is well known. They often operate in rings...exchanging child porn, and often, sadly, children, among themselves. Was there a ring operating "in plain sight" in un-Happy Valley?
I don’t get demonstrating the guy’s removal from office.
What??? Is pedophelia OK in America now? What are the demonstratos saying???? Is all of American youth corrupted now??
Interesting comment from the link right under the photo:
“Creepier is the fact that were likely looking at Victim 4 at some point in this video. Check out the bottom of page 15 - http://assets.espn.go.com/photo/2011/1107/espn_e_Sandusky-Grand-Jury-Presentment.pdf"
Ken....it makes me wonder if there was a ‘pedo ring’ going on at the uni.
Damn. It’s just all too sick. Ugh!
Link doesn’t work....
Oh, I know it will get worse.
I’m glad they fired Paterno, but I still don’t understand the old media’s focus on this. If they were so worried about child rapists, why haven’t they gone after Barney Frank?
The Penn State student body are worthless scum. I will never hire another PSU alumnus or alumna again.
Now it makes sense as to why JoePa was so determined to go to the grave as PSU head coach. He was afraid of what would be discovered after he left.
Nice work! First time I’ve sen your blog. Glad to see you posted it in full (avoiding the harassment) and then linked.
Stop...we want our Joe Pa.
Sandusky the creep ruins the end of Jo Pa’s career. Totally rots.
You know, data recovery has evolved eons beyond where it was in 2005. Wonder if this thing is still in an evidence room somewhere?
Keep in mind that their enrollment is over 44K a small percentage were demonstrating in favor of Paterno.
This bastard Sandusky has destroyed how many lives and maybe the entire Penn State community. Anyone who enabled him or looked the other way has some serious explaining to do.
Then the other 90% should have been counterdemonstrating those filth.
That's because Gricar is the man who may have let Jerry Sandusky off the hook in 1998, when reports first surfaced of Sandusky's sexual misconduct (showering with an 11-year-old boy).
From The New York Times yesterday:
As the Sandusky investigation moves forward, questions will be asked anew about why Gricar did not pursue charges against him 13 years ago.
A small but strident minority believes Gricar did not want to tackle a case that involved a hometown icon.
Others who knew and worked with Gricar say he was a meticulous, independent and tough-minded prosecutor who was unbowed by Penn State, its football program and political pressure in general.
Is there any link to Barney Frank and children?
Excellent observation. I wonder if it was ever sent to an FBI/CIA lab or was just examined with PA resources.
I certainly understand your intense disgust!
But I saw yesterday a group of students who were wearing ribbons or buttons in defense of the victims. Some of them were young men. I was impressed. Imagine my horror this morning when finding out young people rioted over this firing.
I have another question:
In 1999 Sandusky retired and was given an emeritus title. He would have been 55 years old. The average 55 year old faculty member is probably not going to be able to a. retire and b. get an emeritus title.
I’d love to see the records and correspondence concerning that cracked open.
oop. Mine was more of a statement to ponder also.
Allways do, with the exception of copyrighted materials
If you can find a connection between Barney Frank and one underaged child, bring it forth. Otherwise you are over-reaching.
No way the coach..McQuady (sp?) can stay as well..he needs to be gone..
BTW..are you related to Princess Nancy? (g)
Seems to me that this Gricar guy could have been murdered. We are talking about big money here. College football at this level is a serious business. It is not in any way shape or form connected to educating anyone. It is theatre. Big theatre that pays big money. More than enough money to get a fellow killed.
Penn states entire football program should be scrubbed. It should be made an example of and taken apart and junked. Abolished. It has put the entire school on the block. They are going to be sued for big money. Very big money.
he had a gay friend who was principal of elementary
school who ran a prostitution ring out of barney’s
apartment. barney, of course, had no idea this
was going on. however, this is the sanitized
version of events. we may never know what
really went on and what ages were spanned
in that apartment.
“Sandusky the creep ruins the end of Jo Pas career. Totally rots.”
WRONG. Joe Pa ruined the end of Joe Pa’s career.
No one mentions, buy I want to know about Sandusky’s wife. She HAD to know.
All these years ... and they adopted 5 boys!
It is obvious there are more than one roach in that organization. These creeps protect each other.
Funny how underage girls impregnated by older guys are given abortions at abortion ‘clinics’ but the rapes are never reported to authorities. Goes on all the time. Kansas as an example. Yet the lamestream media just yawns. Nothing to see here. Move along.
In addition, we openly have a guy heading the “Safe Schools” subject who wanted to teach under-aged kids how to have gay sex, and who was perfectly fine with an underaged boy saying he had had sex with an adult male, which is statutory rape.
But then, we’ve also got public funding of Planned Parenthood, which has repeatedly been caught on tape covering up known rape. If Joe Paterno needs to be fired because he only reported it to the Athletic Director and not to actual law enforcement, then what needs to happen to everybody at Planned Parenthood and every Congress-critter who knew about PP’s cover-up of rape and still not only failed to report it to law enforcement but also voted to FUND PP? What should happen to Barack Obama, who held economic bills hostage because they would not allow funding for Planned Parenthood, which aids and abets rape?
This issue could be a good thing for our country if it causes us to ponder who really does bear responsbility when known crimes are winked at rather than reported and prosecuted.
And we’ve got a TON of major, major issues that deserve the same scrutiny - including Solyndra, Light Squared, Fast and Furious, Obama’s eligibility, etc. We’re talking big-time corruption and crime, and a LOT of people looking the other way so it could continue. In the Obama eligibility issue people have even BRAGGED that they were ignoring the issue.
What happened at Penn State is a microcosm of what is happening in EVERYTHING government-related right now. And the courts consistently tell us that it is nobody’s business - that none of us loses anything of value because of the crimes and corruption that are being overlooked.
Sandusky AND JoePa ruined the end of JoPa's career. JoePa could have been a hero, if he did the right thing.
Here’s that link:
The Board of Trustees took actions, apparently believing that people with knowledge of a terrible (alleged) crime remained silent in favor of the football program.
Yet, the same Board is allowing the game on Saturday to go on as planned? Talk about sending a mixed message.
For twenty years my father has irritated his friends - most of whom went to Penn State - by referring to Joe Paterno as a “child molester”. It wasn’t a joke, but he never explained why he said it that way.
I’m starting to wonder if he has been right all along.
Since the Univ Pres was pushing the homosexual agenda on this campus and advertised how homo friendly they were, my guess is the majority of the demonstrators were homo.
All these years ... and they adopted 5 boys!
OMG - this keeps getting worse! I guarantee you he molested all of them too! And I agree, she's either dumber than dirt or knows.
More on Sandusky:
Bet it’s good.
Wow - is your dad still alive? Wonder what he knew???
WOW - this story may have legs - and if it is true, I hope it does!!! I want all of the scumbags rounded up and prosecuted!
Fixed it for you.
Q:: if an older woman going after a younger man is called a cougar, then what is an older man going after a younger boy called?
A:: a Nittany Lion
I am just wondering, JenB, if there were possible rumors all along? Why would your Dad make that comment if he didn’t hear something along the way?
No, I am not related to Princess Nancy. I am the only Princess in my family.
“Im glad they fired Paterno, but I still dont understand the old medias focus on this. If they were so worried about child rapists, why havent they gone after Barney Frank?”
Joe Paterno is a Republican.
What’s happened to the graduate assistant who actually saw the crime?
Isn’t he at least as morally responsible as Paterno was to report the crime to police?
Or is he a Democrat?
First, my dad is an amazing judge of character. It’s scary how often his first impression of someone is right on.
Second, there almost must have been rumors. We lived 2 hours or so from State College, most of his coworkers over the years were Penn State grads. The grand jury stuff from years ago might have leaked out... I don’t really know. Might have to pry a little next time I talk to him. I don’t know.
I didn’t go to Penn State and I haven’t lived in PA for eight years or so, so I don’t know any real details. But a lot of my old friends are really, really shook up about all this.
