Jerry Sandusky 'Rock Center' Interview Only Makes Him Look Worse


Jerry Sandusky interviewJust when you thought the Jerry Sandusky case couldn't get any more disgusting, depraved, and wrong, it does just that. As more allegations were piling up against the one-time Penn State football coach, he made his first extended public remarks in a phone interview with Bob Costas that was broadcast Monday night on Rock Center. His remarks did nothing to help his case.

Sandusky said he was innocent, but admitted: “I shouldn't have showered with those kids.”

You think? With 10 more people coming forward to say they were abused by Sandusky, his claims of not being a pedophile seem more and more far-fetched. In his interview, he said:

I could say that I have done some of those things. I have horsed around with kids. I have showered after workouts. I have hugged them and I have touched their legs without intent of sexual contact. I enjoy being around children. I enjoy their enthusiasm. I just have a good time with them.

Even typing the words makes me cringe. Costas didn't let Sandusky off the hook, telling him: "It seems that if all of these accusations are false, you are the unluckiest and most persecuted man that any of us has ever heard about." Read: You are a lying sack of garbage, but it would break my journalistic code to say so, so I will just sit here looking as flabbergasted as the rest of the country as you deny what is so obvious to all.

The amount of evidence against him includes two eyewitness accounts from people who walked in on him sodomizing and engaging in oral sex, multiple accusations (including 10 new ones, which have just emerged in the past few days), and his own bizarre words to a mother of one of his accusers: "I wish I were dead."

Yes, in our country we believe in "innocent until proven guilty," but it's awfully hard to believe that all of these people were lying about Sandusky's actions. It's possible. But it's so unbelievably unlikely.

Even hearing Sandusky's voice makes the bile in my throat rise. How Costas was able to conduct an interview is a mystery. If Sandusky survives long enough to go to trial, it will be a miracle. He may have just unseated Casey Anthony as the most hated person in the United States today.

As my husband said, "Uh, yeah. This doesn't pass 'the smell test.'" No. No it doesn't. He is just evil.

I gagged "im innocent" i teared up at the blasphemy and disgust inducing lies this man told. He didn't even have the gaul to show his face. Then the worst happened, insread of a vehement no when asked "are u sexuay attracted to young children?) You repeat the q what four times defend then say no. I am ashamed to e a human at times because of our fellow beings actions

This sick piece of shit needs to be taken out in the woods (preferably infested with bear), have his nasty old wanker cut off, shoved down his own throat, then have a long sharp stick shoved up his ass and then left to die by either bleeding out or eaten by a bear.  Either way it would be merciful for this piece of scum...he is a dirtbag and the lowest form of life and doesn't deserve to be in this world especially where there are children...period.

He is trying to intimidate victims from speaking at trial. A cruel sadistic manipulator to the end. Notice the attorney's accusation of the commonwealth

The sad thing is that 'practicing' pedophiles don't realize, how cruel their deeds are. They think if they don't use crude force, but manipulation and authority, then their victims' silence means consent. They don't want to see, how their victims get traumatized by their actions. I stumbled over a pedophile board, when googling about the Sandusky case (the site is called boychat) and the major concern is, why Sandusky was so careless, to act in a public place (shower), cause 'as the adult in the relationship he should more responsibility'.
Sandusky will have his day in court, but it is hard to imagine for me that all those victims and a coach and a janitor all got it wrong or conspired, in order to slam Sandusky.
The interview, actually, appears to me to be denial in its highest form.

... let the spin begin. This guy is dirty, he's (Penn's) got the judge and a lot of other city/state officials in his hand.  And boo to Judge Leslie Dutchcot for not recusing herself for being a bud of his. With the ROR, does he really think he can taint the jury pool by "testifying" to the media?? I hope another judge/hearing puts this *virus* in jail to wait for his day in court, always praying and clutching his soap in the men's showers.

First of all, I want to make it clear that I don't condone this man's actions. I think he is guilty as sin.. of what, i'm not exactly sure. Admittedly, I haven't been entirely invested in the coverage of the victims stories or any of the Penn State backlash that has ensued since the scandal broke. It hits to close to home being that i'm a "victim' of sexual abuse when I was a child. I just want to remind everyone that chooses to live in the public eye faces certain scrutiny that the rest of us don't. Does anyone remember the Mcmartin preschool scandal back in the 90's? Just keep that in mind before you crucify this guy in the court of public opinion. His day in court WILL come and the truth WILL be revealed.

HIS attorney is about as bad as well!!! I thought I was going to go through the ROOF yesterday sitting there listening to "it's what 'jocks' do, they shower together" SERIOUSLY??? If it's what 'jocks do' then explain to me why Mike McQueary (who is a JOCK) found the actions inappropriate enough to mention something to his dad and his boss??? 

I could spend 10 days on why Mike McQueary is a coward, but for EVERYTHING the man did WRONG, he is the STRONGEST evidence for the prosecution right now !!

Well, to paraphrase a friend of mine: Innocent until proven guilty is a LEGAL concept to prevent miscarriage of justice by the government. We, on the other hand, are free to read the grand jury report and watch interviews and hear the facts and conclude that Sandusky is predator and a pedophile.
