Meet Jerry Sandusky (far left). Jerry was an assistant football coach at Penn State University, and Joe Paterno’s right-hand man. Sadly, it appears that Sandusky was using his right hand .
Sandusky is accused of sexually assaulting boys, mostly on the Penn State campus. Sorta dispels the claim that PSU is “all that’s good in college football.”
An explosive sex abuse scandal and allegations of a cover-up rocked Happy Valley after former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, once considered Joe Paterno’s heir apparent, was charged with sexually assaulting eight boys over 15 years. Among the allegations was that a graduate assistant saw Sandusky assault a boy in the shower at the team’s practice center in 2002.
Good thing JoePa surrounds himself with quality individuals, huh?
And so does PSU. Gotta hire people who know how to cover up a crime.
Sandusky retired in 1999 but continued to use the school’s facilities for his work with The Second Mile, a foundation he established to help at-risk kids, where authorities say he encountered the boys. The case took on added dimension Saturday when perjury charges were announced against Tim Curley, Penn State’s athletic director, and Gary Schultz, vice president for finance and business. They were accused of failing to alert police of their investigation of the allegations.
Paterno, who last week became the coach with the most wins in Division I football history, wasn’t charged, and the grand jury report didn’t appear to implicate him in wrongdoing.
Yeah, and I’m sure the Penn State Kool-Aid drinkers will say JoePa knew nothing about this.
I find it interesting that I tell people that Paterno’s too senile to run the program, they jump down my throat, claiming he runs everything and is in full control of his faculties. Watch. Now those same people will say that ol’ Joe couldn’t know about this because he isn’t a “hands-on” type of guy.
