Sandusky says he only 'horsed around' with boys
Associated Press ^ | Nov.15, 2011

Posted on 11/15/2011 10:16:10 AM PST by Free ThinkerNY

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -- The former Penn State assistant football coach at the heart of a massive child sex-abuse scandal said he showered with young boys and hugged them but called the allegedly criminal contact "horseplay."

Jerry Sandusky told NBC News' "Rock Center" on Monday night that he was not a pedophile but, in retrospect, should not have showered with the boys he's charged with sexually assaulting.

Funny, this term “horsing around” was used by virtually everyone making excuses for him up and down the chain of command.

It’s an old, odd term that apparently is being used to obscure pedophilia in this case.

Is It Us, Or Does Accused Child Molester Jerry Sandusky’s Lawyer Appear Remarkably Inept?
http://www.thesmokinggun.com/buster/penn-state/jerry-sandusky-lawyer-789436
n a shockingly harebrained legal “strategy,” the Pennsylvania lawyer representing accused child molester Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State football coach, allowed his client to go on national TV last night and cop to showering with young boys.

Attorney Joseph Amendola sat mute by Bob Costas’s elbow yesterday as the NBC sportscaster asked Sandusky, over the phone, about his shower room escapades with young boys. Amendola allowed his client to admit that he “horsed around with kids,” engaged in towel snapping, and “touched their legs.”

He did all this, Sandusky assured Costas, “without intent of sexual content.”

Amendola, 63, allowed his client to be questioned about a 1998 incident in which a woman confronted him about inappropriate contact Sandusky allegedly had with her son during a shower. In a conversation overheard by police, Sandusky reportedly said that his genitals may have touched the woman’s son. “What I did say,” Sandusky told Costas in reference to the boy, “was that if he felt that way then I was wrong.”

The lawyer also sat by as Sandusky took a circuitous route—lasting nearly 20 seconds—to a denial that he was a pedophile.

All NAMBLA members call their anal raping of young boys ‘horsing around’.

Jerry Sandusky will learn what real horsing around is when he is the prison shower with 20 hardened cons..

Sure, grown man just likes to play around in the shower with pre-teen boys. It’s totally innocent shananigans. They oughta take this b*st*rd out and string him up right now, and Joe Paterno should move to Tahiti to live the rest of his days in obscurity reflecting on his enabling this monster.

I’ve seen chatter elsewhere implying that many of the boys he attacked are black. Anyone have info on that? It’s important because one developing narrative is that the crimes were overlooked because of the victims’ race.

This creep is a Michael Jackson in a football jersey.

And, FWIW, the entire staff from JoePa down knew what was going on and their football was more important than the innocent victims along the way.

I'd like to know if JoePa would have let one of his grandkids spend the night at Uncle Jerry's!

He would be convicted under California Law for lewd and lascivious conduct. He needs to shut up. (Yes I know, this is not a California case.) I hope he keeps talking though. It just makes it easier for a jury to wave bye bye to him as he goes to the big house. And good luck with a jury trying to convince them that there he has no sexual attraction to young boys. Ugh!

PC 288. (a) Except as provided in subdivision (i), any person who willfully and lewdly commits any lewd or lascivious act, including any of the acts constituting other crimes provided for in Part 1, upon or with the body, or any part or member thereof, of a child who is under the age of 14 years, with the intent of arousing, appealing to, or gratifying the lust, passions, or sexual desires of that person or the child, is guilty of a felony and shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for three, six, or eight years.

It’s clear the Penn State community is following the Democratic Party playbook. When any Dim gets in trouble, they circle the wagons and adopt the same talking points. When Clinton was having sex in the Oval Office it was a “personal matter,” and when Sandy Buirger got caught removing classified docs from the National Archives, he was being “sloppy.”

So “horsing around” is the new term-of-choice to describe the actions of a child rapist.

My genitals have NEVER even come CLOSE to touching another man in the shower or in the shower room.

One thing women may not know about men is that generally we are VERY private, even shy about parading around in the nude in the locker room. If you see someone doing it, prancing around, chances are they’re a f-ing homo.

The most important point to that NBC complicity with pedophilia cover up was the sexual predator attorney (yes, the attorney is a sexual predator) issuing a veiled threat to the victims.

The sleazy attorney stated to Costa and the 'audience' that 'the alleged victim' in the 2002 reported incident is about to recant his testimony' found in the Grand Jury Presentments.

For the lawyer to say this would mean the attorney or Sandky advocates have had contact with the vicitm recently. BUT the names of the victims could only be available to the attorney via Sandusky since the names are sealed.

The attorney then told Costa that he anticipates several of the vicitms will be recanting their stories. These vicitms could not be known specifically to the sleazy degenerate attorney except through Sandusky naming them.

The victims are being threatened with media exposure and the threat was issued directly from the sleazy attorney, and NBC played enabler for that balckmail of the victims.

Why sure, Jerry, I mean, doesn’t everybody do it? /s

This guy doesn’t get it. And most likely, never will.

However, as someone else noted, Jerry probably won’t think it’s all fun and games when he’s in the prison showers with 20 other hardcore convicts.

Well, there are incompetent lawyers out there. The worst I remember was the Denver guy who had his wannabee terrorist client talk to the FBI here for days, which interview served to support his indictment.

I think almost any seasoned lawyer would say the risk of an unwise statement far outweighs whatever "taint" you might get in the jury pool. Bad move for him.

But I will say this. The interview removed any doubts I had about the guy's guilt. Creepy.

Agreed! Even in the military where there were community showers I never got within arms length of a naked dude.

I wear a towel between the showers and lockers at the gym. And I would never shower with children.

No kidding! What is wrong with people who feel sorry for Joe Paterno? I think he should be tied to a chair for eternity and forced to listen to the screams and cries of the young boys who were raped. Paterno, and everyone else who covered this up, are as bad as Sandusky.

Personally, I always felt that this ‘showering’ together after PE was perverted. I refused...yes...I probably smelled sweaty but there was no way in hell I was going to get naked in front of others when in school.

Didn't know about the ‘boys’ locker room; didn't care. But now that I'm an adult I believe it was a crack in the door to impose this on Jr high/High Schools students designed to break down the natural modesty that exists in the majority of children. One of the tools of the left at the beginning of this slide into decadence.

I’m almost to the point of saying Joe should be banned from NCAA football. He’s STILL not taking any responsibility for his inactions.

And why was Sandusky riding slowing through the parking lot until 3 A.M. on the night the “temporary” janitor caught him. This janitor did not know Sandusky. Later he told his supervisor the “guy” was sitting in his car in the parking lot. The supervisor indentified Sandusky.

Had the supervisor already called someone and told them Sandusky had been seen in the shower performing oral sex on the boy?

Was Sandusky trying to find out who it was that saw him and the boy?

That janitor is now in a nursing home with “dementia”. Was something done to him? My tin folk is melting!

I read somewhere about the boy going back to the project. To me this was hinting that the kid was black. I wouldn’t be surprised that race has something to do with the delay. That and Paterno’s 409th win.

The best part of the interview was when Costa's asked why are these people are falsely accusing Sandusky and in a touch of clear sarcasm,states, ‘you must be the unluckiest and most persecuted person in history’ and Sandusky thought Costas was serious and whining about hard it has been on him!

A point about boys’ locker room protocal: It was ONLY the team members who were in the showers. The coaches, including asst coaches, NEVER undressed around the boys, or hung around for the showers. They were in their offices, or they had their own showers, or they went home in their coach garb, but they NEVER undressed or hung around the undressed boys.

NEVER. In my experience.
