Penn State Child Molestation Case
 
At approximately 9:30 p.m. on March 1, 2002, a Penn State graduate assistant entered what should have been an empty football locker room. He was surprised to hear the showers running and noises he thought sounded like sexual activity, according to a Pennsylvania grand jury “finding of fact” released Saturday.

When he looked in the shower he saw what he estimated to be a 10-year-old boy, hands pressed up against the wall, “being subjected to anal intercourse,” by Jerry Sandusky, then 58 and Penn State’s former defensive coordinator. The grad assistant said both the boy and the coach saw him before he fled to his office where, distraught and stunned, the grad assistant telephoned his father, who instructed his son to flee the building.

This is just more ammo to make Joe Pa retire. This is just sick and the fact that every one at the univeristy tried to cover it up is criminal They all need to lose their jobs and the tax payers of that state should be livid.

It is actually even more than that, a stomach-turning 23-page grand jury report that could be the ugliest scandal in the history of college athletics.


Jerry Sandusky sits in a car as he leaves the office of Centre County Magisterial District Judge Leslie A. Dutchcot on Saturday.
(AP)
The failure of Penn State officials to call in the proper authorities potentially allowed the alleged sexual predator to live free for an additional nine-and-a-half years.

This case demands answers to deep and troubling questions right up the chain of command at Penn State, including Spanier and the legendary Paterno.

Instead, thus far, all we’ve gotten is a pathetic statement from Spanier who quite incredibly deemed Sandusky’s charges as merely “troubling” (and said little more) and then expressed continued support for Curley and Schultz.

“The allegations about a former coach are troubling, and it is appropriate that they be investigated thoroughly,” the statement read. “Protecting children requires the utmost vigilance … I wish to say that Tim Curley and Gary Schultz have my unconditional support.”

Really, that’s it? That’s what the guy who is running Penn State has to say? That’s all he thought was appropriate?

Reading this article is very disturbing. I lost all respect for Penn State...just like that.

More importantly, Spanier needs to be immediately removed from an authority position since his culpability is tied to Curley. After all, Spanier both knew of the allegations against Sandusky and approved of Curley’s handling of the case.

That includes an act almost unfathomable in its insensitivity. According to the attorney general, no one at Penn State ever tried to find the boy. At worst, he was raped in a shower. At best, according to testimony that law enforcement finds non-credible, he was either “horsing around” with or being “inappropriately grabbed” by an old man in an empty locker room.

Yet no one thought they should go find the kid so he and his family could get proper help or further protection. Not even the university president?

“Despite a powerful eyewitness statement about the sexual assault of a child, this incident was not reported to any law enforcement or child protective agency, as required by Pennsylvania law,” said Kelly, the attorney general. “Additionally, there is no indication that anyone from the university ever attempted to learn the identity of the child.”

How? How could all these people of power, people of education, people of authority simply look the other way? And how could Graham Spanier maintain a level of arrogance to release that statement on this day?
more stuff...more disgust.

Everybody needs to die... including the grad student and his father. Eff them all. You could not pay me enough money to turn a blind eye to a ten year old getting anally raped. Douse them all with gasoline and let them burn. Sick mother****ers.

if you read the grand jury report you see this guy could have been stoped by dozens of people multiple times. was caught in showers by 2 different people on separate events. Teachers and coaches seeing him having unatural connection to young boys. Kids told mothers who ddnt stop it, maybe he paid them off. Its crazy this guy was just doing whatever he wanted even when people knew the did nothing about it.

Used to be a Penn State fan. Not after this. Everybody who had any role in this needs to be fired, even Joe Paterno. This is absolutely f'ing disgusting. I hope Sandusky gets what's coming to him.

Ol' Joe is going to cost Penn State mega bucks . He'll be lucky if he gets to walk out of there and live happily ever after .

As a Penn State grad, I can't beleive what is going on up there.
All the good done in the program with grad rates in sports and the idea that this was one on the best programs in the country to send a kid, all being washed away.
Like it or not, college sports puts a public face on a shcool for others to see who know nothing about the place.
This HURTS.

I just can't imagine seeing a grown man having sex with a 10 year old and not making sure he's under the jail .
