    Happy? No, just glad the system worked as designed. Now, if only people had acted as well as the system did this time and turned this man in years before he did all this damage.

    Regardless of the verdict, he damaged the lives of many people, not only the kids he abused. I think justice was done, but I am not happy that it took this long to have Penn State do anything about him.

    He should be put in jail but lets see if power corrupts the court system when sentencing begins. I think the wife should be arrested as well because I do not believe that she could be in the house and not know what was going on; she turned a blind eye to protect her comfort.

    Glad he was found guilty, think everyone involved should be prosecuted as well (INCLUDING HIS WIFE!) That school put the profits of the football program over the well being of a CHILD and they should be ashamed. All convicted child rapists should be covered in honey and strapped to an ant hill, left to suffer and begging for death.

    There is no "happiness" in any part of this story. The children who were abused will never forget what happened to them. Maybe some of them have been irreparably damaged. Sandusky's family will be ostracized and point to for the rest of their lives because people will always wonder why his wife never knew or did she know and ignored it. I mean their own son was abused and she never knew??? How are her other children going to go on? Were any of them abused and they're just not saying? This will never end for his family or the families of those he abused.
    I'm glad he will be punished but there is not happiness in this story at all.

    Glad he was found Guilty but have not watched the news lately so I have no idea what type of time he will be given. I just hope it equals the wrong he has done for so long to so many. If he has enough money he will STILL probably just walk away with some minor penalty to serve.

    he used to be in the Penn State football coaching staff. He created a "big brother" type program that allowed him unnecessary access to "underprivileged" young boys and he bribed them with expensive trips and toys in exchange for doing sexual things over decades. He adopted 6 kids as well, probably molested all of them. He used the college shower facility to remove DNA evidence, and to molest them further. Many people in the college knew about the actions and allowed it to happen because they didn't want the cash flow to stop when the scandal broke the news. So instead of doing what was right and protecting the children from his disgusting urges, they allowed their innocence to be raped away. When he was finally ousted, he smugly played it off as if it wasn't even a bad thing. Joe Paterno, legend in Penn state, got fired because of it (probably was a cause of his failing health so fast as well. but paterno who CLAIMED to be this great guy did nothing to stop the sexual violations from occurring.

    Wow. That's just crazy. He deserves this and more. If it was possible to send someone to jail for more than one lifetime, he should've gotten that. The people who did nothing to stop him should also go to jail for this. They're so horrible and greedy. Those poor boys didn't deserve it. They probably barely understood what was happening or were scared or something. It's a terrible and sad story.

    He is a sociopath because he knew that by spending money to create the foundation he would have authority and power and no one would question when he chose a victim to molest. He took advantage of children who only wanted to be like normal kids, and stole their innocence. One poor boy threw away his underwear for years because it had blood in it and didn't want his mother seeing it. Sandusky was no better than kidnappers and murderers

    In some ways, he may be worst than kidnappers or murderers. He takes advantage of his power to take away the innocence of young children and tries to justify that. I see that as just plain evil.

    Not sure if any outcome after all the damage he has caused could make me "happy," but, I am content that the slime will be put away for the rest of his miserable life.

    Happy? No. Kids were molested and even though he was convicted their lives will never be the same. What about the 3 that were not convicted? What happened there?

    No it is about a system that exists to generate money. Do you think this case would have continued like it did if the university instead of being near the top was near the bottom? No way would it have continued but since the system was generating lots of money, no one wanted to upset the apple cart.
  • disclaimer ehrhornp 2012/06/25 05:35:46

    So you're not going to be happy that a monster like Sandusky was put behind bars because of a failure in the system?

    No because it shows the system is broken. It should never have happened in the first place. Penalizing someone after the fact brings little satisfaction to me. I can almost guarantee you that at some big college something bad is going on but nothing is done about it as the program brings in tons of money to the university. This needs to stop, all of it.
  • disclaimer ehrhornp 2012/07/01 23:09:03

    It does. But you should at least be glad the system worked enough to get him imprisoned once he was caught.

  • ehrhornp Flowers 2012/06/25 15:56:25

    So one person is caught and is being penalized. He is probably being replaced by 10 new perverts who are successful in bringing money into the institution. It might be the time to end football or to knock it back to an intramural sport only. Get the money out of it.

    Before we go that extreme, we need to get more tough on child rapists. Our laws don't do enough to stop it from happening
  • ehrhornp Flowers 2012/06/25 20:29:02
    ehrhornp
    We have laws against such behavior and I think the penalties are strict enough. Now we could get tougher on enforcement. I mean how can these people get away with it for so long? Seems they go decades before getting caught.

    But in the end it will be hard to get them if the institution they work for protects them.

    Must be the power of his position that caused his arrogance. Power corrupts. What attracted him to the job of college coach? What motivated his performance? His lust for sexual power over little boys. The tickle monster, he called himself.
