I love sports talk radio. There is something fantastic about the near insanity of sports fans. But sports talk radio has been ruined because of this Penn State scandal. I want to hear people ripping the Wilpons and Sandy Alderson for not aggressively going after Jose Reyes, instead I have to listen to stories about this disgusting pederast and the Catholic Church style cover up going on in State College PA.
I will come at this from two points of view. Firstly as a parent it is disgusting to think that anything like this is happening to a child. My kids are lucky that they have both parents in their lives, and a good support group of aunts and uncles. A lot of kids aren't that lucky, and many of them are the kind of kids that these monsters prey upon. So when you see your kid(s) let them know that you are always there for them.
Secondly as someone who is very involved in the Boy Scout program, I am very sensitive to these kinds of accusations and activities, because it reflects very badly on all of the thousands upon thousands of good people who want to be there to help kids. When people like Sandusky do this it paints all people who work with kids badly. I don't blame parents from being weary or suspicious. But it is wrong.
I spoke with one of my fellow scout leaders last week, before this thing erupted and he told me the reason he is back with the troop is the same reason I am, because he felt it was his duty to make sure the kids who came after him had the same opportunities he had as a boy in the troop. I know that is how all of our leaders , most of whom were in the troop as boys, feel.
I am sure there is no clear cut policy by the BSA about this kind of situation, but I'm sure there is a pamphlet if you discover there is an atheist or homosexual in your troop. But I know if I was discovering someone raping a kid in a shower, it was stopping immediately. The reaction of that graduate assistant is consistent with walking in on this "adult" having sex with a college age person, not with a 10-year old child. So even though he reported it, the next day, this McQueery should be fired.
Where was the rally for the ten year old kid who was raped inside the football teams facility? Right there wasn't one but there needs to be support for Joe Paterno the guy who allowed this to continue on his campus. Paterno should be fired and probably charged with being a part of this conspiracy.
My only hope is that the other inmates keep this monster Sandusky alive long enough so he can experience the fear that his victims must have felt. So he can feel the pain of being raped like his victims did. And then he can be murdered by the inmates, many of whom probably had backgrounds similar to Sandusky's victims.
