Jerry Sandusky trial -- Penn State Nittany Lions assistant coach Mike McQueary testifies - ESPN


Some of those kids testimony makes you cringe. Sick son of a bitch to say the least.

The thing that upset me the most about this was the students protesting in support of the faculty involved. Are you kidding me? These are children we're talking about, and their safety comes before any allegiance to your university's athletic department. Absolutely ridiculous.

Matt Sandusky says he was abused by father, Jerry Sandusky | The Lookout - Yahoo! News


Too bad they can't enact the death penalty for these crimes he's committed. Looks like his adopted son dropped the bomb and testified (via letter) against his dad that he was also abused.

That's because it doesn't affect them. Nobody generally cares until it happens to them, then they want the world to back them up. Bunch of douche bag idiots if you ask me.

It's all so very disturbing. Can't shake the feeling there'll be a mistrial

Yeah I agree with your last part too, either that or he'll be acquitted. I will be pissed as hell if that happens. Quick question, if he gets acquitted or a mistrial is declared, would anybody care if someone went to his house and killed him? Because I don't think I would. I'm firmly in the "I think he's guilty" camp, and I don't feel like there's any way in which he should be allowed to taste the free air anymore.

last night on nbc they had part of an interview with one of the victims, it was the first time he has spoken publicly, the first time any of them has i believe. he said the reason he came forward was because he felt guilty that he did nothing to stop sandusky and that it led to more kids being abused. he was molested from the age of 12-14 i think, he is now 30. the interviewer asked him if sandusky were here right now what would you say to him? he said i would punch him in the mouth. she asked if he would say anything first. to which he replied i know what he did and so does he, nothing needs to be said.

i am in the same boat as you, if he gets off and someone kills him i wouldnt lose a nights sleep over it. i'd much rather have him die in a jail cell alone though, f-ing pos.

Re: Sex Abuse Scandal Rocks Penn State

I have not been reading the reports from the trial. I have just been patiently waiting for the guilty verdict. Why is there a concern over a mistrial or not guilty verdict? Seems from what I have seen that the evidence is overwhelming.

Simply because it is the American Judicial System.

You would think that the prosecution lawyers have already vetted the jury to avoid that prospect.

Re: Sex Abuse Scandal Rocks Penn State

Hopefully no one in the sequestered jury heard the Matt Sandusky info because they may believe they need to hear more about that now, which I think could lead to mistrial. But what do I know, I'm not JoeLawyer up in this piece

Yes, you would. No, they didn't:

Jury:

A retired school bus driver, a Wal-Mart employee, a Penn State professor and a Penn State football season ticketholder since the 1970s. They are among the 12 jurors and four alternates selected to hear the child sex abuse case against former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.

Mistrial. Rinse, repeat.
