Support for Jerry Sandusky? Save Your Money

As if the students who tore up the Penn State campus Wednesday night in tragically misguided support of Joe Paterno didn't do enough to hurt the university's image, now a former Nittany Lion player wants to organize "support" for ... Jerry Sandusky.

Sam Stellatella, a Penn State lineman from the late 1950s, sent Sandusky a check for $100. "I told him he's going to need a million dollars to defend himself," the 73-year-old Stellatella told Dan Gelston of the Associated Press. "He called me back and said, `What am I going to do with this money?' I said, 'Use it for your lawyer because you're going to need it.'" Stellatella has also written personal letters to the 1959 Liberty Bowl team asking for donations, explaining, "Here's the thing, these are horrendous charges against him. But he's still entitled to his day in court."

Sam, here's the thing: Whatever Jerry Sandusky is entitled to, if his case goes to trial, he's dead, and he will drag Penn State to hell with him. Leaving aside the issue of what decent lawyer is going to be seen in public defending Sandusky, can anyone even imagine what the circus will be like if this trial were to hit cable TV? Can anyone imagine a worse nightmare for Penn State -- which will be soon dealing with its own horrendous legal problems?

And how exactly will those problems manifest themselves for the university? Some talk show hosts appearing on CNN this week said that this is likely to cost Penn State at least $100 million before it's over. From where, exactly, is that figure coming from? As of Friday morning, authorities had identified eight victims. Does anyone think there won't be more -- and probably a great many more, considering that 34 years ago Sandusky founded the Second Mile, a foundation for orphans and "wayward" (as they were called by the organization) children.

Surely no one at Penn State is contemplating any kind of legal defense that involves a trial; such a public spectacle with the horrific revelations that are bound to come out of it could only make things far worse than they already are. Not to mention that the Department of Education -- you know them, one of those agencies that Rick Perry wants to abolish -- is launching its own investigation. Does anyone connected with Penn State want television cameras on all this?

If not, there's only one alternative, and that's settling out of court with all the victims. The reality is that right now, no one can possibly calculate the cost that Penn State will incur. And this doesn't even take into account the lost revenue from prospective students who choose to go elsewhere.

Here's some advice for old Penn State players who want to give Jerry Sandusky a show of support: Keep your money and advise Sandusky to plead guilty on the basis on insanity, throw himself on the mercy of the court, and pray that it shows some. And save your money, or at least don't send it to Sandusky. Send it to one of the funds to help the victims.

Dear Ex-Coach Sandusky:

You butt-chewing hyena! You vulgar, publicly masturbating, rat corpse-maggot! You worthless bag of mildewed filth. As we said back when I was a Texan, -I'll bet you couldn't pour piss out of a boot with instructions on the heel. You are a canker. A man-whore's dick sore that won't go away, with drugs, lasers or liquid nitrogen!

I would rather kiss a fugly lawyer than be seen with you, you pimple pus! You're a putrescent mass, a projectile, dark green chunky vomit. You are a headless worm, squiggling out of a bonobo's irritated bunghole, deserved of nothing but the most profound contempt. A jerkoff gone full-on twitchy, you're a ferret bred and borne for deviate sexual activity SO debased, this sentence has NO option other to trail off with a <gag>...<hork!>...<gerflabble ack-=""> chunk spew.

Your life is a monument to stupidity. You are a gag-inducing stench, a revulsion, a MONSTER-suck on a rotten, sour lemon. You are a bleating foal, a phuctarded, ass-sucking, mutant dwarf, smeared richly with the effluvia and offal accompanying your alleged birth into this world.

When you were born, the OB/GYN ran around the guerney and slapped your mother. Twice.

Her violated Gyn-na disgorged you early as an insensate, blinking slug, meaningful to nobody and abandoned by the puke-drooling, giggling beasts who gang-sired you before commiting mass-fish-flop suicide. You emerged, the result of a suck-sounding genital coupling rape-noise in a port-O-potty. 

Not one of your "siblings" will EVER cease drooling into their last gasps re; embarrassment at belonging to the same phylum as you. You are a monster, an ogre, a malformity. Mutants hork up smelly, multi-colored chunkage at the very thought of you. You have all the appeal of a wet, taco fart gone cancerous.. Lepers avoid you! You aren't merely a vile worthless waste of skin, you're infinitely less than nothing!

You are a weed, a fungus, the lowest dreg in a cesspool. Your scent repulses buzzards who've already bounced dead, mid-flight, off a shit wagon. Any written refutation of the forgoing truth./reality will constitute proof that you're fouler than a bum's booger wiped on tile, above a stinky gas-station urinal. Does any of this reality penetrate that snail-skulled little rabbit's wink-hole of a twitch-4-a head you sport? Would that a eagle pick you up, drive its beak into your fetid excuse for a central nervous system, and upon finding it rancid, set you loose to fly briefly, before crashing into the sea, -spattering ocean rocks with the frothy brown shame of your ignoble blood. May you choke on the queasy, convulsing nauseaus bile of your own trite, foolish beliefs. You are weary, stale, flat and unprofitable. You are grimy, squalid, nasty and profane. Foul and disgusting, you're an unfathomably obese, waddling fool of a missing link. Ignoramus? Phuctarded monkeys look down on you while crapping.

Drugged sheep can't be forced to have sex with you. You are unreservedly pathetic, starved for attention, and lost in a land that reality forgot. WHAT meaning do you expect your delusionally self-important statements of unknowing, ignorant, inexperienced opinion have with me? Good God! What sickoid fantasy COULD you hold that wouldn't betray your tiny-fisted tantrums sporting less weight than that of a leprous desert rat, spinning rabidly in a circle, begging for a vicios snake bite? An indisputable waste of flesh, you have NO rhythm. Ridiculous and obnoxious, you are the moral equivalent of a meth-mouthed leech licking the rusty bottom of a dumpster. You are a living emptiness, a meaningless void. Sour and senile, you are an incurable, alien viral disease, you puerile, stinky, drooling, meatslapper!

On an excellent day you're a 1/100th wit. Gay bottoms have sat on the toilet farting out INFINITELY more important semen-riddled shyte than you'll EVER amount to in the best of your night sweaty dreams! Deficient in all that lends character, you sport the personality of a muffler burn in tighty-whities. Dank and filthy, you are the source of all unpleasantness among every species, -ever. A fiend and a coward, you evidence the gag-inducing breath one might expect of a rotten-yellow-toothed, ass-sucking gimp, kept in a trunk for the party amusement of pedophiles. You are degenerate, noxious and depraved.Oddly, I feel debased merely for knowing you still exist! I despise everything about you, and were it not for flushing toilets, can't for the life of me imagine your purpose. Perhaps our species needed a reference point for stupid-- thus, your existence came to be.

Otherwise, I can not believe how incredibly stupid you actually are! I mean rock-hard stupid. Bag of burning hair stupid. SO stupid, it goes way beyond the stupid we know, into a whole different dimension of stupid. You are trans-stupid, stupid. Meta-stupid. Stupid so dense, it collapsed on itself so far, even the neutrons have collapsed. So dense that no intellect can escape. Singularity stupid. Planet-death, in the path of a neutron beam blast, stupid. You emit more stupid in one nanosecond than our entire galaxy emits in a billion years. Psycho-spinning quasar stupid. Nothing in any multi-universe could possibly have been proven to be THIS stupid-- until you opened your mouth. Perhaps you evidence some primordial fragment from the original BIG-SHYTE of stupid...Some pure essence of a stupid SO uncontaminated by anything else, as to be beyond the imagined laws of theoretical physics. I'm sorry. I can't go on. This attempt to describe you has proven itself an epiphany of stupid.

After this, you may not hear from me again -until your mouth opens to speak, or you text. I have more than enough strength left to deride your ignorant assertions and half-baked comments about unimportant trivia, but I'd sooner invest jawflap in observations of local (S. CA) weather forecasts or subjects even CNN, FOX or Disney network holdings ID as simian-worthy infotainment.

The only thing ever worse than your logic, was your manners, -you dull prole. Until your splooge gets diluted multi-generationally, dinner partner's suffering your essence mega-generations hence, will have no choice, but to insist to the host that your progeny bolt from the table for a more suitable duty, wiping car windows at the curb.

Any attempt you make at constructing a refutation to this accurate asessment of you, your likely offspring, or any XX chromosome bearer inebriated enough to have allowed your filthy, humping to attempt impregnation, are hereby deemed goofy enough for Youtube. Any expectation you may have psychodelically buzz-dreamed as resulting in the birth of anything more complex than a quivering anus, will prove sub-pitiful. Perhaps later in life, after you have learned to knuckle-gimp around town on a thrown-away skateboard, you will enjoy success on par with some thumb-assed foriegn telemarketer.

There are "challenged" persons in this world, who find chopstick-fishing into their dick slit for a sheep crap-snack, to be infinitely more difficult than you do. Had ONLY I known this was YOUR case, I'd NEVER have laid eyes on you to begin with, you cockroach mating stain, you! It just wouldn't have been "right". Sort of like parking in a handicap space deserved reserved for noble combat Veterans.

The emotional and social struggles you are placing on your caregivers rank RIGHT up there with reasons you should consider offing yourself in about as violent and revolting a manner conceivable to people who, -unlike you- were born with a conscience. I'd love to slowly squish your head in a wood shop vice, -face up-, while crapping on your face as a means of suffocation.

Ambivilence bordering upon explosive, projectile diarrhea,

Your idol,

Mr. MarcClass of 1981</gerflabble></hork!></gag>

Football is the theory -- pedophile rape is the practice.

I'm sick over this Penn state scandal. I can't believe what this world has come to. Why have we elevated collegiate sports symbols to a level to where they are just slapped on the wrist for turning there heads. firing Joe pa is simply not enough. In my book every person who knew of this and didn't stand up. Should go to prison for life and I also hope they burn in hell. And to top it all off the psu alum riots because Joe pa got fired. Those people should be arrested and put in prison also. This scandal makes me sick and sad and blows my mind.

I'm not giving him any money but I can understand why someone might want to. Right now these are just unproven allegations. He has the right to defend himself in court and he can do so in any way he sees fit.

The preponderance of evidence so far seems to suggest one thing and one thing only, a coverup. If you're the head coach, or the president or a former anything connected PSU then all heads must roll, including programs such as athletics and football. Why the proposed drastic measures? Because football is the source of revenue that dictates how these institutions make decisions on personnel, policy and procedure, and it's clear as day how it clouded the judgement of key decision makers including JoePa.This is and will not be an isolated case. Check out the Citadel story. Tolerance of such behavior will continue to be an issue as long as hundreds of gazillions of dollars are in play.I continue to pray for the victims and their families, football or no football at PSU.

There are probably more deserving charities than Sandusky. 

Firing JoePa is what seems premature. He didn't get a trial. What if he didn't believe the McQueary story? If somebody told me that they saw somebody I know and respect and would never guess was a child rapist raping a boy in the shower, and that they apparently left the scene, doing nothing (was there eye contact, WTF?), called their Dad (at 28) and ended up at my house telling me this completely unproveable, shocking accusation, I wouldn't know what the hell to think. I'm not sure I would go to the police on that flimsy basis and accuse somebody I know of something horrible, possibly ruining somebody's life based on the story of this guy who might be off his nut.

If his friends/family/former classmates want to support him, let them. He is innocent until proven guilty. He will have legal bills whether he pleas guilty or goes to trial. If your oldest friend is accused of a horrific crime, do you abandon him at that low point of his life, no matter his guilt or innocence?

It's true that there are many examples of a "sure thing" being dead wrong.  But man, the consistency of the cases, the number os disparate accusations, the eye-witness accounts from repudible people......they're pretty compelling.

Whatever happened to 'the presumption of innocence until proven guilty'?  Remember the damning case against Strauss-Kahn?  Why should we even bother putting Sandusky on trial?  He's been proven guilty in the eyes of the media and public.  We all know that a grand jury is infallible.

this is so much bigger than one man or criminal mind, it has to do with complicity and/or allowing it to happen in an educational institution, when they and most D-1 schools derive their revenue from sports, mainly football.yeah innocent, yes America, but cmon, only him responsible for letting it happen???

According to what I've read:

*Paterno hasn't been, and isn't going to be, charged with a crime. He may be one of those who will be sued, but the lawsuits won't be filed until Sandusky's criminal trial(s) is (are) finished. That's a long time to wait to fire Paterno. Besides, if Paterno did nothing wrong, why did he announce (before he got fired) he would not return after this season was finished?

*Penn State police investigated Sandusky for child rape in 1998. While the D.A. eventually decided not to charge him, he admitted to hugging a boy in the shower and conceded that it was inappropriate to do so. Paterno must have known at least that Sandusky had been previously investigated when McQueary came to him in 2002.

*It's plausible that McQueary didn't intervene and left the scene because McQueary was just a lowly graduate assistant and Sandusky, while no longer on the coaching staff at that point, was still highly regarded, and McQueary feared for his job. Or McQueary could have simply been too stunned to intervene.

*McQueary did make eye contact with both Sandusky and the boy.

*While the law was different in 2002, Pennsylvania now requires someone who gains second-hand knowledge of child abuse to report it to the police. So if you were to find yourself in Paterno's 2002 shoes today in Pennsylvania, you would have to go to the police.

*Paterno told the athletic director what McQueary told him, more or less. Perhaps he thought he fulfilled any obligation he had in the matter by doing so. Didn't he assume there would be an investigation, by the campus police or some other agency? If not, why not? If he did, did he later inquire what actions were taken as a result of what he told the athletic director? If not, why not?

If Paterno did know about the previous investigation, that could change things. I say COULD because maybe even if he did, he was the oblivious type of guy who doesn't see fire where there's smoke. 

Right now, all we know for sure is that Paterno was confronted with a shocking accusation with no evidence other than the testimony of the alleged eyewitness. In hindsight, knowing what we know about Sandusky's alleged other crimes, it seems likely that McQueary told the truth. If it was me being confronted with that accusation minus the context that we have, I have no idea what I would have done. I suspect that part of me would believe and part of me would doubt, with neither gaining much of an upper hand, i.e. I might have done what JoePa did. The context here is everything. 

Where culpability for enabling this predator can be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt, that's one thing. Beyond that, we should try to narrow the swathe of lives he destroys, not widen it.

Which, of course, no one (except the alleged victims) can be certain of until there's a trial ... It certainly doesn't look good for ol' Jerry, but if reports via the media were proof enough to convict him, then why bother with that pesky old "trial" business? We could just take the DA's office at its word, save a bunch of time and money. The DA is never wrong; we've never accidentally incarcerated, or executed, innocent people before ...
