Serial child sex abuse; what could Sandusky's wife have known?

Serial child sex abuse; what could Sandusky's wife have known?
Updated: Nov 11, 2011 7:02 PM EST
By Gordon Boyd

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB)-- Chattanooga native Dorothy 'Dottie' Gross Sandusky not only has been her husband Jerry's partner in life, and in the raising of six adopted children; but also in his 'Second Mile' charity.

Pennsylvania prosecutors allege the former Penn State defensive coordinator used Second Mile to find, groom and rape at least six young boys between 1994 and 2009.

Some of the alleged attacks are believed to have occurred in the couple's home.

So how, many ask, could Dottie Sandusky not have known?

"I've seen it both ways," clinical social worker Farlie Chastain says. "In which the family knows and is in denial."

"Because these people are good," Nurse Practitioner Allyson Neal says. "They are what you want them to be at any given moment."

"Very good at hiding it from everyone," Chastain says. "Very good at seducing the child and manipulating the child not to tell."

Very difficult to believe she had never been told, but easy to believe that she never believed it.

Just saying, these people know how society feels about them, so they get very good at hiding the monster within.

It’s tempting to try to spread the blame, because the blame just seems too huge to be borne by just one person, but that’s the truth of the matter; The blame rests with the one evil person committing the evil.

None of us can be held accountable for not being mind readers.

Yeah, but if you see something, or have reason to even believe something is going on and don’t do or say anything, that makes you just as sick as the person doing the evil deed.

How can anyone turn a blind eye to that and be able to sleep at night is beyond my comprehension.

I agree. It serves no purpose to witch-hunt for more people to blame. If anything, the wife is just another victim of the pedophile.

One can go through life with many secrets, that is why they are called secrets. Would you tell your wife that you were molesting children?

I mean I feel it was unlikely she never was told, in this case, by one or more of the unfortunate children who reportedly underwent molestation. I don’t mean fessed up by Sandusky to his wife.

I agree. If you know, and don't make sure it stops, you're guilty!

But you can't hold people who don't know accountable for the actions of others.

None of us actually know what has happened. So, just to be a Devil’s Advocate: One of legal truisms is that a prosecutor can indict a ham sandwich. The accused has no defense, no witnesses and no evidence. Accusations are uncorroborated. There is no cross-examination.
The accused has six children, one a Marine. They range from 48 years old to younger ages. Their bedrooms must have been located where they could have heard their father tip-toeing down to the downstairs room. Women and Marines hear anything in the night. All six have said their father has been a moral person and a leader.
Hundreds of people, including PSU players and charity leaders vouch for him.
When the defense lawyers are done, the accusers won’t even know their own names.
Everybody thinks the accused is guilty. If we could bet on things like this, $20 at 100-1 would be a good bet.

"Turning a blind eye" indicates an act of volition, which is actually in contradiction to the meaning of "blind". If you are mentally "blind" to something, you don't see it, and you therefore don't need to turn from it.

Of course she knew.

Even the excuse making commentator “these people are very good at hiding it” - Have they read the case? The WHOLE POINT is he wasn’t good at hiding it. Caught multiple times by multiple people in multiple locations.

The only location missing from his “caught” list is his house.

There was a police report and investigation. YEARS ago.

To me, a “blind eye” means you see it but CHOOSE not to acknowledge it.

Not that you don’t see it.

McQueary's testimony as well as that of the janitor are the keys...assuming they're protected.

McQueary is under guard, allegedly out of state. The "official" story is it's to protect him from JoePa fans and the outrage of the public. My guess is it's to prevent him from ending up like Ray Gricar.

I have to say that I would be very surprised. Hey maybe YOU were one of the customers, but just don’t know it. See what I’m saying here? Where are the moorings? This is what is so disturbing about this affair, putting aside the sufferings of the victims. Thousands of people are suffering thousands of ills and injuries every day, but this affair strikes at the social fabric, and this commands attention.

You should do yourself a favor and read the facts of the case. Because clearly - either you don’t know what you are talking about - or are deranged.

Multiple witnesses multiple corroborated independant stories. Victims reaching to number 7, etc. Campus police reports.

And those are the documented cases.

As I said, it's the "turning" of the "blind eye" that indicates this in the proverbial statement, but in fact people are often truly "blind" to facts of their own situation that may be instantly obvious to disinterested observers.

McQueary should be terrified right now, and he deserves it for his inaction all those years ago. I knew he would never coach again once the story broke; his own players probably wanted to break his neck.

I suggest to anyone who thinks this man is not guilty, go read the 23 page indictment & then say he's not guilty. There are 8 victims at this time in the indictment, but more have been coming forward.

Also, note that others in the football program were witnesses to his actions. http://deadspin.com/5856777/a-guide-to-the-sexual-child-abuse-charges-against-jerry-sandusky-and-to-penn-states-alleged-willful-ignorance

I so agree, I think this thing stinks to high heaven & maybe murder played a part in it too! Gricar's disappearance is still a mystery.

Well, they never had any children. That should have been her first clue. Did she think he had an old football injury and couldn’t have children?

She knew something was up. Cuz her husband wasn’t.

No. He is a child molester. Yes, a gay child molester. He doesn’t like women, he likes young boys. Probably why they adopted, if truth be told.

Of course they knew, think of the university as a small town. Now everyone knows that in a small town, everyone knows everything that happens within hours.

It's human nature, people cannot keep secrets & also too many people knew for it to be kept secret.

That is part of why this is so horrifying, so many adults knew & covered up to save face for the university & their own butts & their own jobs! Nothing else mattered to them. Everyone involved in the cover-up should be arrested & tried for these crimes!

And, today, they will play their football game, like nothing else matters, like they've done for over 15 years now! Care about the victims? Victims that were raped for years because their football team mattered more to them than the victims!

Wasn't she the least bit curious as to why the train left the station?

It’s funny, I just watched ( for the nth time ) an episode of Perry Mason, “The Unwelcome Bride”, in which Perry, with Della, presents to the court a timeline chart of the events of the evening of the murder, which they presciently reveal slot by slot as the testimony unfolds. This serves, of course, to aid the viewer’s comprehension of the complicated plot.

It’s just such an aid that I seem to be lacking here for the events of an affair spanning 16 years, and I have to admit that I never had an inkling of any of this during all that time, although the facts seem to say that there was public knowledge of it ... but how could this be?

They might as well drag out onto the field to hold above their heads a 100-yard bandaid to symbolically represent their approach to child pain and adult heartache in their "community."

My grandmother passed away in August and I had to sit at the post-burial reception and listen to my aunt endlessly tell me what an incredibly good, decent, kind and wonderful man my uncle is.

Why I did not finally snap and go completely, utterly batsh*t is still a miracle to me.

So, no, I’m not really dealing with this most recent, spectacularly egregious public child molester scandal very well.

I haven’t even talked to my mom in weeks because if *she* makes any comments about “how horrible all this is”, I might not be able to avert the emotional snapping, this time.

Suffice to say that I personally think he *and* everyone who knew should be summarily taken out, gut shot and left to die in a cold, lonely place.

You can’t imagine *how* horrifying it actually is unless you’re a kid it’s -really- happened to.

I'm not sure if I would go that far, however I would bet the rent that assuming Sandouchebagsky makes it to trial without offing himself or being off'd by someone else, I fully expect a component of his legal defense to be that he is a "victim" too, and he will claim that when he played for Penn State in the 60's that Paterno molested HIM. It will (in my opinion) be a lie, but amoral monsters like Sandouchebagsky always seek to take down as many others as possible when they finally face justice.

So if I turn a “deaf ear” to your response, that makes it okay?

I think I see what you’re getting at, but it’s still not an excuse.

Any inkling of the abuse going on and ignoring it is not acceptable.....ever.
