I looked at my sons and remembered when they were younger, when I was super busy and would have welcomed help with them, and then remembered why I kept them close to me...Sandusky and men like him.
My sons were never sent off to be in football camps or other activities where I wasn't allowed to go. I protected them with my life and my soul. Every decision I have made for the last thirty years has been for my children.
It is why this business with Penn State and Sandusky et al, and the national obsession with organized sports has me sick at what happened to these young boys.
I wanted to beat the then GA who witnessed a grown man raping, sodomizing, an eight year old in the locker room! What part of pull the naked man off the boy, grab the naked boy, run out to the car, put the child in the car, race to the hospital while calling 911 for the police, was too hard for him? I do not understand the coverup.
Then for the kids at Penn State to flood the streets in droves to protest the firing of "JoePa" because of this scandal is beyond me. They should have been protesting because young boys, economically deprived boys who were promised opportunity by this supposed "charity" that is more of a "pimping" station, were robbed of their innocence, this is what they should have been protesting.
I couldn't write about this for a week, the first news report that described what the graduate assistant saw left me sick to my stomach, I didn't want to read the rest of the "graphic" charges because it would have made me angrier.
There should be a national outrage, all of the university officials involved should be ashamed. The judge who gave Sandusky a slap-on-the-wrist, easy-out, no-bail, pass should be impeached or whatever they do with judges.
Then to find that the prosecutor tried to bring charges or was going to bring charges but has been missing for years, why isn't all of State College PA upset over this? Or is the coverup because of the money involved in college sports? The supposed legend of Joe Paterno and the Penn State football program? Young boys sacrificed for the 1%, because, yes, Sandusky and his rich buddies, pedophiles, were and are wealthy.
I want to take my girls, my teenage son, and get away from the sickness that is America right now. What happened to this country?
