How come there hasnt been a "search warrant" issued to search Sandusky's house or computer for evidence or child pedophilia? Im sure if he wasnt rich, he would be in jail and the warrant would have already occurred... It is amazing how people of wealth and stature get treated so differently then the less fortunate....
Clearly, Sandusky used the strengh and power of the Penn State Football program as his shield to his pedaphile behavior; he never thought that that institution would come down, baring his horendous actions-even now, it's a big issue many are struggling with–the "storied Penn State football program" being used as a shield for a pedaphile to conduct his actions? Sandusky is innocent until proven guilty; however, it's difficult to see how all of these children would testify to a Grand Jury and how a PSU assistant coach who is clearly a PSU footballl loyalist would lie about any of these events.
Dear Anderson: RE: The Penn State Scandal On your show Monday night there seemed to be moral outrage that an older man would shower with a young boy. As I watched, I remembered that when I was 11 or 12, I played a lot of sports at the YMCA and other places. Afterwards, I would shower, and invariably there would be guys of all ages doing the same. And I never thought a thing about it.
The accused coach may well be guilty, which is for the courts to decide. But segments on the news like the one above seem to have nothing to do with justice. They seem have more to do with revenge, outrage/anger and good old-fashioned witch hunting.
