That stupid @$$ who saw a boy being raped and did not try to stop the rape, where is he? he should be in jail.

everybody who saw, was told, was reported to, knew about this vicious heinous crime against children and did not follow through to the police no matter that they told their higher up (passing the buck, anyone?) should be persecuted.

when the man wasn't arrested, when the police didn't call him for a statement, the morasucking spineless bastard who saw the the rape didn't think he owed anything to himself and his conciensce (not to talk of the children) to take himself to the police and say "hey, i saw this thing and you people haven't asked me about it?"

perhaps i'm not being rational about it, but i'm a parent and my God...to think that all these adults failed these children...thinking about football. FOOTBALL!!!!!!!

Hmmm. Why am I not surprised to hear this news. I don't wanna start anything but an average homosexual is a pedophile. Many people might not wanna admit that but it's true. It comes with the territory - one perversion leads to another. One can't just pick and chose which sex perversion to "normalize":gnash
WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
thats all i have to say about this statement.

Fired by phone after howmany? 46 years. The job he put his conscience aside to protect. Painful but he deserves it.
As for Sandusky, the man never had his own kids..he adopted. That is honorable, but now we know why.

On a more funny note:

Ashton Kutcher apologizes for Paterno tweet – The Marquee Blog - CNN.com Blogs

Prolific Twitter user Ashton Kutcher is taking a break from the social media site after he posted a response to the firing of Penn State's coach Joe Paterno without knowing the full story.

According to People magazine, the 33-year-old "Two and a Half Men" actor tweeted on Wednesday night, "How do you fire Jo Pa? #insult #noclass as a hawkeye fan I find it in poor taste."

Both Paterno and the president of Penn State have been let go in the wake of an alleged child sex abuse scandal.

Allegations of child rape have been brought against the school's former defensive coordinator, Jerry Sandusky, and critics have called for Paterno to resign because he reported the allegations to superiors, but not police. On Wednesday, the school's board of trustees ousted Paterno, saying that it was "necessary to make changes" because of "the difficulties that have engulfed our university."

As the news of Paterno's dismissal was unfolding on Wednesday evening, Kutcher followed up on his initial critical tweet.

"Heard Joe was fired, fully recant previous tweet!" he reportedly wrote to his 8.2 million followers. "Didn't have full story." The initial tweet and Kutcher's admission of tweeting prior to knowing all of the details surrounding the Paterno firing have since been deleted from his account.

Instead, Kutcher has announced that he's taking a Twitter sabbatical. "As an advocate in the fight against child sexual exploitation, I could not be more remorseful for all involved in the Penn St. case," he wrote early Thursday. "As of immediately I will stop tweeting until I find a way to properly manage this feed. I feel awful about this error. Won't happen again."

Update, 1:50 p.m. ET: In a statement on Posterous, Kutcher explains that while he will still express himself via his Twitter account, it will be managed by his team at Katalyst Media "to ensure the quality of [its] content."

Kutcher recalls that he first heard of the story after returning from work, and made an assumption that Paterno was fired because of his performance as a coach.

"With that assumption (how dare I assume) I posted a tweet defending his career," the actor says in the statement. "I then [went] about my evening...and about an hour later turned on ESPN where I got the full story. I quickly went back on my twitter account and found a hailstorm of responses calling me an 'idiot' and several other expletives."

At that point, Kutcher "retracted and deleted" the tweet, but says "that didn't seem enough to satisfy people's outrage at my misinformed post. I truly am sorry if I offended anyone and more over am going to take action to ensure that it doesn't happen again."

He adds that he doesn't take his 8 million plus followers for granted, and since "Twitter has grown into a mass publishing platform, where one's tweets quickly become news that is broadcasted around the world and misinformation becomes volatile fodder for critics," he feels "responsible for delivering an informed opinion, and not spreading gossip or rumors through my Twitter feed."

With the help of his management team, Kutcher believes this is "a mistake that I don't think will happen again."

Fuck the Vatican! The same assholes that pay the parents of molested children to save face! Pedophiles molest children, not gay people. Everything you just said is bullshit. I am disappointed and sorry for anyone who believes the things you say.

Nike, that book is actually very well researched. And the facts they presented were almost incontrovertible.
I dunno if they were writing from experience but they definitely knew what they were talking about. I highly recommend that bookgrinning:

Stuff like this makes someone want to just lock their kids indoors and call it a day. I am wondering why that 22 year old kid did not pounce on the grown ass man when he saw that horrow. Maybe he was scared but fear no fit reach that one. I would just be thinking of the kid. In defence of this 22 year old he actually kept reporting it all the way up the ladder. The problem here was he could have just cut through all that and gone straight to the police. May God protect our children. Amen

how is this possible that the guy who saw sanduski raping this boy, is still employed at Penn State? i saw on the news last night that he is not going to attend the game on saturday because he "fears for his safety"

are you EFFING kidding me?
you didn't fear for the safety of the boy when you ran away you spineless cowardly punk?

i don't give a good damn if he reported it to somebody when they didn't lock sandusky up you should have started making a lot of noise and raising cain.

in the court of public opinion he is guilty and should go, bb let me borrow your phrase please, DIP IN MAGGOTS.:mad0217::angry::mad0226::mad0245::mad0259:

:devil :devil :devil :devil
State College, Pennsylvania (CNN) -- Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky insisted in an interview Monday night he is "innocent" of charges that he sexually abused young boys, denying to NBC's Bob Costas that he's a pedophile.

In a telephone interview with NBC's "Rock Center With Brian Williams," Sandusky admitted that some details in the graphic 23-page grand jury report released earlier this month are correct.

"I could say I have done some of those things," he said. "I have horsed around with kids I have showered (with) after workouts. I have hugged them, and I have touched their legs without intent of sexual contact."

Still, Sandusky claimed he has been falsely accused of crimes. When pressed, the 67-year-old Sandusky said the only thing he did wrong was having "showered with those kids."

The stunning allegations led to the firing of legendary coach Joe Paterno and the departure of other officials because they didn't promptly contact police after accusations surfaced.

The national spectacle has outraged and embarrassed Penn State students and alumni. An alumni-led effort has raised $372,000 for abuse victims in less than a week, a Twitter message said on Tuesday.

Investigations have been launched by the Pennsylvania attorney general's office, the U.S. Department of Education, Penn State and Second Mile, the charity founded by Sandusky.

Costas asked probing questions in his interview : "Are you sexually attracted to underage boys?"

Sandusky repeated the question, paused, and responded, "No. I enjoy young people."


Asked if Paterno had ever spoken to him about his behavior or expressed disapproval, Sandusky said simply, "No."

And asked if he felt guilty over the spreading fallout that has affected the university and prominent university figures including the fired Paterno, Sandusky responded, "I don't think it was my fault. I obviously played a part in this ... I shouldn't have showered with those kids. That's what hits me the most."

Sandusky's lawyer, Joe Amendola, said Monday night that showering with children does not equate automatically to sexual assault.

"Jerry Sandusky is a big, overgrown kid. He's a jock," Amendola told CNN's Jason Carroll. "The bottom line is jocks do that -- they kid around, they horse around."

But CNN legal analyst Sunny Hostin said she thinks a crime has already been committed, based on Sandusky's own admissions.

"It's such a classic fact pattern for him to admit that he showered with these children and horsed around and confessed to touching them," she said on CNN's "AC360." "In my mind, that's already misdemeanor child sex abuse. So I disagree when the attorney says nothing criminal happened here. That, in and of itself, is criminal ... I'm flabbergasted."

CNN senior legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said Amendola finds himself in a difficult position in trying to explain his client's actions.

"It is better to say they took a shower together than to say that sex took place in the shower. But when you are admitting to showering with a 10 year old, you got a big problem already."

Veteran defense attorney Mark Geragos, who defended Michael Jackson against child molestation charges, urged caution in the case.

"Is there anyone who gives a presumption of innocence at this point? No," Geragos said. "Before we go and we say this is a done deal ... and condemn them and everything else, I think maybe we step back and take a deep breath for a second."

Watch reaction to Sandusky's comments

Sandusky was arrested on November 5, after the release of the grand jury report detailing alleged crimes that he committed between 1994 and 2009. The grand jury identified eight young men allegedly targeted by Sandusky.

After his arrest, authorities have received more than a dozen calls from alleged victims of the former coach, a source close to the investigation told CNN last week. The source said it would take time to vet the allegations.

One incident witnessed by then-graduate assistant coach Mike McQueary in 2002 allegedly happened on Penn State's campus.

McQueary told Paterno what he had seen, and Paterno then alerted then-athletic director Tim Curley, but law enforcement didn't learn of the alleged incident until years later.

In the interview with NBC's Costas, Sandusky flatly denied that McQueary witnessed what has been described in some accounts as Sandusky's rape of a young boy. He said instead that he and the boy were in the shower, "snapping towels" and engaging in horseplay.

Regarding the 2002 incident, Amendola said "the kid was messing around and having a good time" in the shower with Sandusky, adding that McQueary felt "uncomfortable" upon seeing it. He denied the more graphic details offered in that and other allegations, claiming that the prosecution's case lacked sufficient evidence and witnesses.

Amendola told NBC's Today show the apparent person in question claims the alleged rape never happened.

"We believe we've found him and if we have found him, he's telling a very different story than Mike McQueary and that's big news," Amendola said.

Amendola said that Victim 4 named in the grand jury presentment was at Sandusky's house as recently as two years ago. He was there with his girlfriend and baby and said he wanted Sandusky and his wife "to be part of his family." He said two others mentioned in the presentment saw Sandusky this summer and went to dinner with him.

"They have been throwing everything they can throw up against the wall," Amendola said of prosecutors' case. " And they're saying, (out of) all these accusations, some of them have to be true. But when you take it apart, they don't even have victims in several of their cases."

After Sandusky was charged this month with 40 counts of sexually abusing children, Judge Leslie Dutchcot freed him on $100,000 bail, against the wishes of prosecutors.

A biography of Dutchcot posted on the website of the law firm Goodall & Yurchak lists her as a volunteer for Second Mile, the charity Sandusky founded. It is not clear whether Dutchcot currently has any affiliation with the organization. CNN tried to contact the judge but has not received a response.

School trustees fired university President Graham Spanier and Paterno last week on the heels of Sandusky's arrest, while McQueary was put on administrative leave.

On Monday, in an indication of the scandal's fallout spreading beyond Penn State, U.S. Navy spokeswoman Lt. Cmdr. Alana Garas said that the U.S. Navy secretary recommended that Spanier "be removed from the board of advisers to the presidents of the Naval Postgraduate School and Naval War College."

Also on Monday, the board of directors for the charity that Sandusky founded -- Second Mile -- announced that its CEO had resigned. The CEO of 28 years, Jack Raykovitz, a licensed psychologist, "and the board believe this is in the best interests of the organization," said a statement.

Second Mile vowed to cooperate fully with the ongoing state attorney general's investigation. It will conduct an internal investigation and has retained the Archer & Greiner law firm, which includes former Philadelphia district attorney Lynne Abraham.

Sandusky molested young boys after developing close relationships with them through Second Mile, according to the grand jury report.

Penn State announced a probe last week and the U.S. Department of Education wants to know whether Penn State failed to comply with the Clery Act, which requires colleges and universities "to disclose the number of criminal offenses on campus that are reported each year." The Office of Federal Student Aid is conducting the probe.

"In addition, in certain cases, the institution must issue a timely warning if a reported crime represents a threat to the campus community," the department said.

Second Mile said Sandusky has not been involved with its children since he told officials in November 2008 he was being investigated over "allegations made against him by an adolescent male."

Curley and Senior Vice President for Finance and Business Gary Schultz have been charged with failing to report the abuse to authorities and misleading investigators. Prosecutors determined they had a legal duty to report the alleged abuse, but not McQueary and Paterno.

On FB, Donnie Simpson wrote and I totalled agree with him......

"Former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky's comments in defense of child abuse allegations against him, were very disturbing. "I could say that I have done some of those things. I have horsed around with kids. I have showered after workouts. I have hugged them, and I have touched their legs without intent of sexual contact." Really? With a defense like that, who needs a prosecution witness. Just play this tape in court and put it in the hands of the jury. Listening to him reminded me of Buffalo Bill in "Silence of The Lambs". Creepy".
