Former Penn State Coach Sandusky Discusses Paterno, Sex Abuse Allegations in New Interview
FoxNews ^ | 12/3/11 | AP

Posted on 12/03/2011 9:10:27 AM PST by ColdOne

During a lengthy interview at his lawyer's home, Sandusky told the newspaper he and Paterno never spoke about the alleged 2002 incident or a 1998 child molestation complaint investigated by the Penn State campus police.

"I never talked to him about either one," Sandusky said. "That's all I can say. I mean, I don't know." He worked for Paterno for nearly 30 years.

Sandusky said he never sexually abused any child and that prosecutors have misunderstood his work with children.

"They've taken everything that I ever did for any young person and twisted it to say that my motives were sexual or whatever," Sandusky told the Times. "I had kid after kid after kid who might say I was a father figure. And they just twisted that all."

He is accused of mining the ranks of his Second Mile charity to find underprivileged boys to abuse. Sandusky also said that the charity never restricted his access to children until he became the subject of a criminal investigation in 2008.

He said he regularly gave money to the disadvantaged boys at his charity, opened bank accounts for them and gave them gifts that had been donated to the charity.

"I tried to reward them sometimes with a little money in hand, just so that they could see something," he said. "But more often than not, I tried to set up, maybe get them to save the money, and I put it directly into a savings account established for them."

Always the victim's fault,never the criminal's fault.
I expected him to say "They wanted it as bad as I did".
That's just how the typical sick,demented,twisted, predatory animal thinks.It's part of their DNA.

Well Jerry, I certainly hope your days as a free man are numbered. You’ll find plenty of underprivileged males in jail to do things with. However, you may not be well-liked, as I understand POS like you are at the bottem of the totem-pole behind bars.

Well, Admiral James Stockdale, a staunch abortion backer, said after 1992 that he had never in his life had a political discussion with Henry Ross Perot.

He will out everyone connected to his dismal pedophilia once he realizes he’s not protected anymore. Like a drug addict, he will not own up to his situation until he hits bottom.

Sandusky...

Asked directly why he appeared to interact with children who were not his own without many of the typical safeguards other adults might apply — showering with them, sleeping alone with them in hotel rooms, blowing on their stomachs — he essentially said that he saw those children as his own.

“It was, you know, almost an extended family,” Mr. Sandusky said of his household’s relationship with children from the charity. He then characterized his close experiences with children he took under his wing as “precious times,” and said that the physical aspect of the relationships “just happened that way.”

Michael Jackson (Martin Bashir interview)...

“Why are kids going to school with guns? They would not ... they want to be
touched, they want to be held, but they [the parents] are busy off on their
day job and they leave them at home on the computer and they just doing all kinds of crazy stuff.”

“We're going to sleep, I tuck them in and I put a little like, er, music on
and when it's story time I read a book.”
“We go to sleep with the fireplace on. I give them hot milk, you know, we
have cookies, it's very charming, it's very sweet, it's what the whole world
should do ?”

Probably where they're going with this. His attorney was making noises last week about the possiblity of a plea bargain. You can bet the farm Sandusky stops breathing the moment it moves that direction.

I think he actually believes his own lies. It never ceases to amaze me how people who have everything; wonderful families, health, money, status, a legacy, will throw it all away for some sexual deviancy.

"I think a lot of the kids really reached out" for wrestling and hugging, he said.

Ah, the rapist's classic "I'm the real victim here, they were asking for it" defense, used here against a bunch of children. Because if there's one thing "a lot of kids" will really reach out for, it's wrestling and hugging some old man.

Every time Sandusky talks, he incriminates himself further.

Yeah. A child molestation investigation was started in May 1998 by the Penn State University Police, the State College Police, Pennsylvania child welfare, and the Centre County District Attorney. People were interviewed. And in May 1999 Joe Paterno told Sandusky, who was his heir apparent, that Sandusky would not be Paterno's successor.

And Sandusky announced his surprise early retirement.

But there was never a mention of or discussion of the whole 'child' thing with JoePa, no matter how small. Ever.

Right.

How much are they paying you, Jerry?

At this point money is meaningless to Sandusky...he's delusional...a very sick man.

I think we can agree he's been a very sick man for a long time.

But powerful people are telling him at this point: "Jerry, we can make this rough on you or easier on you. We can't make it easy. But if you want the right prison or you don't want to end up with a gun in your mouth and a shabby police investigation next week, Joe Paterno never knew anything about this. Never heard a word, never mentioned it to you. Not even in 1998 and 1999. Capisce?"

'"They've taken everything that I ever did for any young person and twisted it to say that my motives were sexual or whatever," Sandusky told the Times. "I had kid after kid after kid who might say I was a father figure. And they just twisted that all." '

"You wanna know what I think? I think you're some kind of deviated prevert. I think Coach Paterno found out about your preversion, and that you were organizing some kind of mutiny of preverts. Now SHADDUP!"

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."
