Jerry Sandusky will be found innocent
Letter to the Editor
Updated: 11/09/2011 12:37:09 PM EST
I have to say I find the accusations against Jerry Sandusky very hard to believe. I have met and know Jerry through The Second Mile. Both of my daughters were a part of the Second Mile program, and it is a great program for kids. I would have never hesitated one minute to allow Jerry to be with my children.
He is being judged in the court of opinions. This man is innocent. I support Jerry 100 percent. I also ask that people please do not judge the Second Mile program. They are a great organization for at-risk children. The adults who run this program are the best counselors available. My children learned so many valuable things by participating in the programs offered.
Again, knowing Jerry Sandusky, I find it very hard to believe that he ever hurt any child that was in his company. Please stop judging him and let our justice system work. I think that when all is out and said and done Jerry will be found innocent of all of this.
Ahem. They're 'at-risk' once Jerry walks through the door.
Cult ties are hard to break.
Apparently DAUGHTERS would be safe- it seems little boys are his preference
York, PA - About 10 years ago, Diann Bishop’s marriage ended in divorce. Her daughters, then about 8 or 9 years old, took it hard. They were having some problems adjusting, and a school counselor referred Bishop to The Second Mile.
Her daughters went to one of the summer camps run by the charity founded by former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky. Bishop can’t speak highly enough about the organization and how it helped her daughters, and she fears that the current scandal that has stemmed from Sandusky being indicted on child sexual abuse charges could harm a program that does so much good.
“I’ve seen first-hand what they can do,” Bishop, of Manchester, said Wednesday. “The people who work there, the counselors, are one in a million.”
While her daughters were in The Second Mile, Bishop met Sandusky. When the charges against the former coach made news last week — including the accusation that Sandusky’s alleged victims were boys in The Second Mile program — she said it floored her.
biting my tongue...
Unfortunately there were a lot of people who felt the same way Mrs. Bishop does. It’s the reason so many pedophiles get away with their perversions for so long.
Ohhh, boy. I knew this was gonna happen. Even the impeached rapist had his supporters.
something tells me sandusky will never make it to trial- there will be a bullet put through his head either by himself or someone else prior...
And yet Sandusky, if the stories about his buggery hold water, didn’t even go off privately by himself to indulge his fantasies alone in an attempt to keep any harm from children. How can such “goodness” and evil mix?
Give the woman a break, she's stating the facts as she sees them (although her purview is limited).
So with the little boys...was it “just” a rape or was it “rape-rape”?
Daughters may be safe from Sandusky, but what about the other adults that he has assembled for his program? How many of them are predators? I suspect that Jerry associates with some very questionable people, at best.
Any parent that is standing with Sandusky at this point is either deaf or willfully ignorant. People SAW him doodling little boys for pete's sake!
If she didn't know anything, she didn't know anything. Don't paint her as some sort of enabler.
Let’s see McQueary testified to the Grand Jury under oath let he saw Sandusky assaulting a young boy. But this genius just “knows” that Sandusky wouldn’t do any such thing.
I guess McQueary could have lied to the Grand Jury and the writer of this letter is 100% correct.
But I wouldn’t bet on it.
“Denial” isn’t just a river in Egypt; it flows through State College, PA., too.
Maybe, but she also had a very different impression of the guy.
Young girls were apparently safe with Jerry.
Lay off the Kool Aid, lady.
The Cult of Penn State... sickening.
Sounds like it was a front for NAMBLA activities.
It’s hard for some people to accept the truth
If you are not only presuming this guy innocent at this point, but publicly vouching for his character, you are a complete fool that should not be trusted with children yourself.
By most reports, her impressions were wrong.
Well, she is an enabler by supporting him.
I never said (or implied) that Mrs. Bishop knew anything. The evidence is pretty clear that Sandusky raped boys, yet she’s willing to overlook it because her kids had a positive experience. There were certainly those at the university that were willing to overlook evidence because of good results. Pedophiles get away with their perversions for so long because people don’t want to believe what know to be true.
Sandusky isn't stoopid. I'm sure he made damn certain that the people he hired were among the best. HE was to be the only predator there and HE only went after little boys. I'm also sure he chose and cultivated his victims with the utmost care. No doubt he also made sure that for every abused boy there would be a hundred with only positive memories of him.
I am aware of cases like this, where a pedophile basically lived a double life, compartmentalizing his criminal side while presenting a respectable front.
And again, Let’s have the Grand Jury go over the major figures on the donor list with a fine-tooth comb to see what pops up.
She didn’t see or read that testimony, she might caught some clips from reporters but that’s not the same thing. She is saying two things, that she believes he is innocent by her impression (probably naive) and that the trial is the proper place to decide (a reasonable suggestion).
No, she did not enable his crimes (or alleged crimes if we are being PC). She knew nothing about them.
Sure, so was OJ. And the point is?
Thanks, I am glad you clarified. If she had known and looked the other way, she should be investigated like the others. The University, OTOH, both knew and looked the other way.
The victims are numbered...
Hey Diane, you brain dead obama voter, do you suppose Second Mile had any lesbo employees? If you had sons, would you send them there?
Oh man... where did you find that?
"Well, Mr. Simpson was always very nice to me."
I imagine the dead DA already did.
The father of a close friend is a homosexual pedophile and he lives just such a double life. He’s a family man, with a wife and two adult kids. Prior to being discovered, he was well thought of in his church and neighborhood. He went to work, did a good job. They lived in a nice neighborhood, had two cars, etc. No one ever expected that the friends his son had sleep over were in danger.
I doubt very much he will be found innocent but I do agree that we need to let our justice system work. It doesn’t anymore. Everyone involved seems to be guilty until proven innocent and that is just plain WRONG! McQueary is supposedly on adminstrative leave because he is a “whistleblower” because he told Paterno. Well Paterno told the campus police and he has been FIRED! Something is completely wrong with this picture. McQueary witnessed a violent act and did NOTHING to stop it. Makes me wonder what else he knows and if he isn’t being fired so he’ll keep his mouth shut. This is such a mess!
What about BTK? He was a serial killer but lived a very normal life with wife and kids and went to church every Sunday.
Perverts are out there and are very good at disguising what they really are.
Oh yea he is innocent.
So was Michael Jackson.
Two peas in a pod.
Or there could be other information the authorities wish to process before charging him.
Pederast "chick hawks" are as smooth as glass.
Yeah...lady...I’ll bet most of those Children in Hitler’s youth camps loved him and the experience, too...
McQueary testified to the grand jury that when he walked into the showers and caught Sandouchebagsky anally raping a 10 year old boy, that he first heard ‘slapping sounds’ that were indicative of sexual activity.
If the ignorant twat writing this letter had been the one walking into the showers, she would have just thought somebody was clapping in appreciation for her hero Jerry.
Ya, since Sandusky is homosexual, your daughters are safe with him.
