One of victims accusing Jerry Sandusky the former Penn State football coach has been bullied out of school, pennlive.com reports, citing the teen’s psychologist.

Students blame the 17-year-old high school senior - identified as Victim 1 in the grand jury report - for the university’s firing of legendary football coach Joe Paterno, psychologist Mike Gillum told the site.

Watch the video to see In Session contributor Sara Ganim discussing the bullying Victim 1 has endured.

This is what normally happens to male sexual abuse victims, and is why rot like what we see here and in the schools and in churches can go on for decades.

Disgusting. And people wonder why people who are victims of sex assaults or harrassment by powerful people are (a) afraid to report it and (b) don’t want their names revealed even years later.

Apparently the people in the school and the town were calling this 17 yr old boy filthy names related to the type of assault, saying it was his fault (he was much younger at the time that it happened), and saying his family just wanted “the money,” whatever that means.

Sounds kind of familiar...

To the ones who tell anyone anyway. Most of them keep it secret so it grows in them like a cancer of some kind.

This is wrong ! The boy was sexually abused and should not be tormented for it. Sandusky should be the one to pay, not the 17 year old !

Penn State loves their coach even if he did cover for a pedophile on his own staff for years.

To hell with those juvenile victims, Penn State says.

The people who have been attacked over the Sandusky assaults on teenage boys are Joe Paterno, McQueery, Penn State Administrators, The DA who is missing and presumed dead and the victims.

Meanwhile, Sandusky gets a sympathic prime time interview from Bob Costas and it is said he was just “horsing around” in the shower. Sandusky’s attorney says he is searching for the victims and wants to get them to recant their testimony.

Does anyone else see a pattern here?

Pennsylvania has some very nasty white trash living in some rural areas. They burn down Amish barns, covered bridges, etc. I had an encounter with some once, which I won’t easily forget.

This is so sad for the victim. No wonder male abuse victims don’t come forward as much as other groups. There isn’t any sort of reasonable answer for this child either. Does the Mom move him out of state? What about her job if she just picks up and leaves? Should he just try to get his G.E.D.?

It isn’t going to be long before some drunk fan takes this situation into his own hands.

I probably should have posted this article and this article about John Matko, who dared to stand in the middle of Curtin Road, a few yards from Beaver Stadium, on the day of the Nebraska-Penn State game.

The Penn State graduate's cap had black tape over the logo. His handwritten sign said "put abused kids first," "the kids are what this day is about, not who wins or loses," "honor the abused kids by canceling this game and the season."

He was greeted with obscenities, thrown cups of beer, a slap, from Penn State fans.

And I couldn't find the *really* detailed article about all of the things that were said and done to him.

So, yeah, I can see a bunch of Penn State fans hounded this kid out of school for being Victim #1, the kid who was orally sodomized multiple times, and more. The kid who asked his mother about sex freaks, causing her to question why he wanted to know. The mother who contacted school officials. The school where two coaches spoke openly and frankly with investigators regarding their concerns with Sandusky.

What is interesting is that the Sports Illustrated Special Issue on this subject said that Steven Tuchetta, the coach who reported the sexual abuse of Victim #1, was now a hero in the town for simply doing what was required; something Penn State didn't do.

It appears Sports Illustrated wrote too quickly. Or maybe the coach is still revered (I doubt) and the vile attacks are only against the poor kid who was assaulted multiple times by Sandusky.

Penn State football. Gotta love those priorities.

Poor, poor child. My heart breaks for him. How will he ever deal with this horror in the future?

It all brings back to me the brilliance and horror of James Dickey’s novel “Deliverance” and the vile act of male rape and it’s impact on young manhood.

They were actually selling obscene buttons claiming “It don’t mean nuttin’” to the Penn State student body and some fools were wearing them until the school administrators came to their senses and ordered the sales stopped. The bozos don’t realize that they have a very badly damaged brand throughout the rest of the country (none of the bowl games want them) and all the piling on of the innocents and brushing off the evil that happened will only make a bad situation worse.

From one of those articles:

"Abuse flew at Matko from young and old, students and alumni, men and women. No one intervened. No one spoke out against the abuse."

"One disapproving student said, 'Not now, man. This is about the football players.'"

"And with those nine words, we see the truth about Saturday’s enterprise. It was about the football program, not the children. It was morbid theater where people were mourning the death of a jock culture that somewhere along the line, mutated into malignancy. It’s a malignancy that deprioritized rape victims in the name of big-time football.

Comments from anyone attending the game? Anyone? Bueler? Bueler?

“How will he ever deal with this horror in the future?”

Much, much better than most victims of child abuse: there’s a multimillion dollar settlement in his future....and the futures of the other Penn State victims.

“In 2003, less than one year after Paterno was told that Sandusky was raping children, he allowed a player accused of rape to suit up and play in a bowl game. Widespread criticism of this move was ignored. In 2006, Penn State’s Orange Bowl opponent Florida State, sent home linebacker A.J. Nicholson, after accusations of sexual assault. Paterno’s response, in light of recent events, is jaw-dropping. He said, “There’s so many people gravitating to these kids. He may not have even known what he was getting into, Nicholson. They knock on the door; somebody may knock on the door; a cute girl knocks on the door. What do you do? Geez. I hope — thank God they don’t knock on my door because I’d refer them to a couple of other rooms.”

The left wanted to get rid of morality, this is the result.

This is the typical way the left operates. The March of Dimes would conduct search-and-destroy missions by recommending amniocentesis...discover those likely to have a disability while still in the womb...then murder them in the womb. You victimize the disability, doing away with it by ridding society of the disabled themselves!

Which will turn it into the Toilet Bowl, with those fans keepin’ it classy!

I guess man-grunts that emerge from their man-caves to watch a grubby piece of pig skin get knocked about also aren’t supposed to know whether to blame a buggered boy or his buggerer. Political football at its most ironically appropriate. The crowd that thinks on this level could “redeem itself” only if they did something like march Sandusky and Paterno out there in chains and the crowd roundly booed them and hurled beer cans and beer cups, then hissed while they were led away.

This shows you the root problem is the State College culture -- a culture of indifference that wound up sanctioning one of the last remaining "taboos" -- child sex.

As Scoutmaster pointed out the Penn State fan reaction to one lone protester (see post #30), the problem is State College and its culture.

Penn State disciples first wanted to simply pin the blame upon Sandusky...
...but Sandusky hasn't been a Penn State employee since 1999...
...then by a day after the Paterno firing, they expanded their blame game to McQueary -- and some admins...
...Yet McQueary did in part, exactly what Paterno did -- he reported this to a superior...

From the Penn State students' riot...
...to the way John Matko was treated @ Penn State's last home game...
...to now this...
...shows the State College people need to start looking inside themselves.

Penn State needs to be converted from being unrePENtant State...
...State College people themselves need revival, restoration, reformation, and revitalization.

Don’t forget that sports originally were included in university and college programs to give the young men (since most of these institutions were all-male) a sense of honor, decency, and fair play. So much for that.

I wonder how many football fandoms aren’t, to some extent, cults, cults that fortunately prove harmless until something seriously evil actually happens and then the mentality to which the cults lowered themselves proves unequal to the task of dealing with that evil.

Maybe part of the problem is that they don’t take the consequences to the evildoers to that same level. Sandusky, if not a lot of others who winked and nodded, maybe ought to be chained at the 50-yard line and be the target of many a beer can and cup.
