Like the rabbit hole from hell, the Jerry Sandusky scandal doesn’t seem to end. The former Penn State assistant football coach liked to rape little boys. Eight charges have been filed against the pervert, and God knows how many more actually took place.
Then we found out that legendary head coach Joe Paterno knew about rapes, and did nothing about it. In 2002, assistant coach Mike McQueary walked in on Sandusky sodomizing a ten-year-old boy in the locker room. He did nothing to stop it, but later called his dad and then Paterno to report it.
These guys knew Sandusky liked to rape little boys, and they did nothing to stop him. A sin of omission is just as bad as a sin of commission, guys.
But where did all of these young kids come from? College hardly seems to be a great hangout place for the tween set.
Well, Second Mile is a nonprofit organization founded by Penn State that encourages young kids “who need additional support and who would benefit from positive human contact.”
I’m sure rape wasn’t the kind of contact they had in mind.
And because this is the horror story that just won’t end, Pittsburg radio host Mark Madden said this morning:
“I can give you a rumor and I can give you something I think might happen,” Madden told John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. “I hear there’s a rumor that there will be a more shocking development from the Second Mile Foundation — and hold on to your stomachs, boys, this is gross, I will use the only language I can — that Jerry Sandusky and Second Mile were pimping out young boys to rich donors. That was being investigated by two prominent columnists even as I speak.”
I have no words.
