Just skimming some of the pages in here, I"m finding out more and more and it's harder and harder to see the POV of some of the posters who want to defend Joe Pa. He wasn't the perpetrator though, and I can't believe that he is being WAY more talked about and burned here than the actual guy who did it.
What gets me the most is all of the inconsistencies on this subject though. Shoot, for the last few years I've been having to hear posters on this board, celebs, and other random folks all over the place praising the biggest child molester of all time in Michael Jackson who had a pedophile ranch, paid off his accusers, openly admitted to doing all types of things that were obvious as day, and yet so many people have turned a blind eye to all of that and just stated that he was "weird" or that his daddy messed him up and all types of pathetic spin efforts. Sorry, but this may be from left field, but I think half the people in this thread that are wanting Joe Pa burned at the stake are big time hypocrites, because I remember hearing a lot of people celebrating MJ when he passed and wanting to "look the other way" every time it was mentioned, and MJ was far bigger than this story if people really wanted to read about all of that stuff that went on. MIKE TYSON is another perfect example as well. Dude raped a woman and sexually assaulted Peter Welcsh's daughter when she was a minor and also beat the living crap out of Robyn Givens, yet Mike Tyson is hardly ever even mentioned amongst rapists and guys of this kind and his career and his legacy is constantly being headlined and covered as if these things never happened.
Sorry, I know that this post is going to tick a few people off. It wasn't my intention, so I'll apologize for how it may have come off, but if rape and pedophilia is so wrong which it damn sure is, then folks need to be a lot more consistent when putting the clues together and turning a blind eye because of who they like or dislike as entertainers, coaches, and athletes.
Problem is you are looking for more consistenty from different groups/posters.
I think you are lumping different groups together. Can you say the same people that "turned a blind eye" to MJ are now the same that are wanting to "burn joepa at the stake" as you put it. How on earth would you know it's the same folks and why would you expect consistency?
IMO, and I have read this entire thread, most people are not "burning joepa at the stake". I think most think he should be fired, and he should be! Maybe even serve some jailtime for not reporting an alleged crime involving sex abuse of a child, I believe someone stated that is a law in that state. That dip**** didn't call the cops, failure to report an alleged crime by so many folks. It's sickening all the way around.
Maybe you're not hearing so much about Sandusky because it's a slam dunk he should have the book thrown at him. It's not even debatable.
MJ, you won't hear me say anything good about him either. Nor Tyson, but at least he did serve SOME time in prison.
All child molesters should be extinguished. Period. There's consistency for ya.
