Quotes of the day

posted at 10:46 pm on November 14, 2011 by Allahpundit

Close to 10 additional suspected victims have come forward to the authorities since the arrest of the former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky on Nov. 5 on 40 counts of sexually abusing young boys, according to people close to the investigation. The police are working to confirm the new allegations.

“The news of additional accusations came on a day when Sandusky made his first extended public comments since his arrest, and the resignation of the chief executive of the Second Mile foundation, the charity founded by Sandusky, was made public. They were the latest developments in a case that has led to the ouster of several top university officials, including the football coach, Joe Paterno, and the president, Graham B. Spanier.”

***

“Alleged victims of former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky are working with at least two legal teams to prepare civil lawsuits against the university—seeking damages from the university over administrators’ failure to take action.

“‘This may be the most high-profile sexual abuse case ever,’ says Benjamin Andreozzi, a Harrisburg, Pa., lawyer who is representing at least one of the victims listed in grand jury filings. Adreozzi noted that once other potential victims see that they’re ‘not alone,’ perhaps they’ll come forward, too…

“Attorneys close to the cases, meanwhile, believe the number of victims will grow dramatically in the coming days. ‘I think things are going to be fast and furious over the next weeks,’ says Manning J. O’Connor, an attorney in Pittsburgh who has been following the case.”

***

“Sam Stellatella, a three-position player in the 1950s for Penn State, is trying to raise funds for Jerry Sandusky’s legal defense.

“Stellatella has donated money and has urged other former players to do the same.

“‘I told him he’s going to need a million dollars to defend himself,’ the 73-year-old Stellatella told teh Associated Press. ‘He called me back and said, ‘What am I going to do with this money?’ I said, ‘Use it for your lawyer because you’re going to need it.’”

***

“Mrs Sandusky, 68, attempted to call one of the victims in the weeks leading up to his testimony, despite the fact the now 26-year-old had cut off all contact with Sandusky two years prior.

“She left a message on Victim 7′s phone saying the matter was ‘very important’ but the man, who told the Grand Jury that as a ten-year-old in 1994, Sandusky hugged and inappropriately touched him, did not return the call.

“Part of that alleged abuse took place in the Sandusky family’s State College, Pennsylvania, home, in which Dorothy and her husband raised their six adopted children. Sandusky claimed he and his wife could not have any of their own…

“Quite how much [the Sandusky family] knew about the sexual abuse, which occurred between 1994 and 2009 with a number of incidents at the family home, is now under scrutiny.”

***

“In the middle of Curtin Road, John Matko held one handwritten sign in his right hand and rested another against his jeans. Two inches of black tape obscured Penn State’s logo on the 34-year-old father’s hat, as he tried to ignore the jeers, slaps and beer hurled at him.

“‘Put abused kids first,’ one of Matko’s signs read. ‘Don’t be fooled, they all knew. Tom Bradley, everyone must go.’…

“A beer showered Matko. One man slapped his stomach. Another called him a ‘[expletive].’

“‘I understand the culture,’ said Matko, who graduated from Penn State in 2000 with a degree in nutrition. ‘I was part of it. It doesn’t surprise me what I’m getting from them.’”

***

“[G]ood people, heroic people, are led into temptation by their very goodness — by the illusion, common to those who have done important deeds, that they have higher responsibilities than the ordinary run of humankind. It’s precisely in the service to these supposed higher responsibilities that they often let more basic ones slip away

“I suspect a similar instinct prompted the higher-ups at Penn State to basically ignore what they described as Jerry Sandusky’s ‘inappropriate conduct,’ and persuaded Paterno that by punting the allegation to his superiors he had fulfilled his responsibility to the victimized child. He had so many important duties, after all, and so many people counting on him. And Sandusky had done so much good over the years …

“The best piece about Darío Castrillón Hoyos was written by the Catholic essayist John Zmirak, and his words apply to Joe Paterno as well. Sins committed in the name of a higher good, Zmirak wrote, can ‘smell and look like lilies. But they flank a coffin. Lying dead and stiff inside that box is natural Justice … what each of us owes the other in an unconditional debt.’”

***

“If Penn State officials want to make the point, to their community and the whole country, that what’s going on is a helluva lot more important than football, there is no better way to make it than to forfeit the final two games.

“How could I say this? Isn’t it time for the ‘healing’ to begin? What better way to heal than to cheer the old team on to victory, right? Wrong. We are not yet remotely at the healing stage. That makes the playing of a football game not purgative but grotesque in the current context. To engage in those rituals at this time—rituals I love, by the way, and have participated in since I was about 8 years old and hope to participate in until I draw my last breath—is not to heal. It’s to forget; to force the horror into the background, to bury it in pageantry and team colors and marching bands and tailgate parties and boozed-up alumni taking comfort in ritual. There will be a time for that comfort and those rituals. But the Penn State board should not be permitting them just yet.

“What the board should be doing right now is trying to send the message that what happened is utterly and wholly and universally intolerable. There might be various ways to do it. But there’s really only one that will hurt, that will fully and truly drive the point home. Does Penn State want to be one more ass-covering institution in a world of ass-covering institutions? Or does it want to say—as it has often said during the Paterno era—no; we are different. We are Penn State. That’s their chant, by the way. We are [clap, clap] PENN STATE! They should be the Penn State they have claimed to be. Cancel the season.”

***

“When you graft a multimillion-dollar entertainment industry anomalously onto higher education, you produce a bubble of entitlements and exemptions, and eventually, a simple moral derangement.”

What I find most troubling is not that they failed to act about a specific incident in a shower room. What is most disturbing is that they ignored so many bright red flags that the guy was a serial molester.

After the McMartin hysteria and on the other hand the true crimes going on within the Catholic church I think that people have been sensitized to the issue. For God’s sake, there are laws mandating reporting by teachers and health professionals. Just about anyone with a brain that knows that someone has admitted to at least some inappropriate behavior with kids and is also involved in a child-at-risk charity has the potential to be a serial molester who is using that charity for access to kids he or she can groom.

I’m sorry but in an era where people are so uptight about pedophiles that you can’t take pictures of your own grandkids in the park without some busybody scold calling the police, when my brother had someone question his motives for handing out candy in the synagogue (as I’ve done and as our grandfather did before us), I can’t believe that anyone at Penn State that had a whiff of what McCreary saw, had any doubts about what Sandusky was doing.

When McCreary saw the rape, this was already years after Sandusky had retired early to start the Second Mile foundation. Paterno and his staff had to know what Sandusky was all about.

It’s sad, whether the pedophile is a priest, a rabbi in a yeshiva or a girl’s softball coach, when confronted with some of the creepiest human behavior possible, otherwise good people will opt towards protecting an institution before protecting children.

Could it be the judge was aware of that and was just helping out?

Oh I can see much more to this. It is horrible.. but I am seriously thinking that the group for the kids was set up for other purposes, and it makes me sick as hell.

I suspect this is a very common situation. I’ll bet there are many group homes for troubled kids used as a home base for pedophile grooming and selection. Hell, judging from this one, they aren’t monitered closely. Sounds like the BOD was worthless.

Hmmmm.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa (Reuters) – The lawyer for the Penn State football coach charged with child sex abuse said in an interview on Monday the boy at the center of a 2002 incident detailed in the grand jury’s report had been identified and said it never happened.

This was Vic 2. So, they are going to try to impeach McCreary’s accusation. Probably the smart thing to do. It is the only rape we know about so far.

I have to take on three popular pedophiles in positions of power… not one of them was abused when he was a child. I think we should walk back that meme until we actually get some evidence. It is not a foregone conclusion.

mankai on November 14, 2011 at 11:30 PM

Good point. (And not all who are molested choose to repeat evil behavior). We’re a society that’s increasingly accepting of any type of sexual activity. Jaded attitudes lead to seeking a new edge.

I thought about that because on the Sandusky thread below Feedie linked to this comment at Climate Audit. Steve McIntyre did a post on Spanier’s firing because Spanier is connected to another scandal–Michael Mann (who’s at Penn State!) and his Climategate e-mails, and Spanier didn’t ensure Mann was thoroughly investigated.

As far back as the 70s, Spanier saw morality as “labeling.”

In this piece of psycho-babble/profound medical research, Spanier explains:

http://www.springerlink.com/content/g18580h5t244324u/fulltext.pdf

“We [Spanier and Cole] choose to view deviant behavior simply as behavior that some value and others consider wrong. An individual’s behavior becomes deviant only when others define it as deviant. Much of an individual’s behavior can be viewed as a response to this “labeling.” Mate swapping, then, can be viewed as either deviant or normal behavior, depending on who is viewing it and from what perspective it is being viewed.”

Clearly a flexible thinker was appointed to run mighty Penn State (I wonder what he had on the board of trustees?)

It’s in a 17 page pdf of a 1975 article co-authored by Spanier. You have to wonder at the atmosphere he has established at Penn State.

INC on November 15, 2011 at 12:58 AM

Mike McQueary, who told police he witnessed the 2002 incident, may have stopped that incident. Sources told NBC news that, and McQueary said it as well.

Maybe it’s too early to worry when there appears to be little need for worry. But figure this scenario: There are so many millions in involved in potential civil claims (after the criminal trial) that dishonest lawyers (dishonest lawyer may be an oxymoron)may encourage parents of children who were around Sandusky but NOT molested to file criminal complaints so the lawyers could later pick up civil suit contingency fees. Let’s say 10 accusations were legitimate and three were complete phonies.

If a competent defense attorney can poke holes in the story of just one of the apocryphal claims (or a mother, under pressure, tearfully admits she was lying) it could cast a pall of ambiguity over all the legitimate accusers. Wouldn’t it be a kick in the head if Penn State loses a president, an AD and a coach and the cause of all this fuss walks!!!!

There’s good news in the poll for Paul, 76, a Texas congressman who has attracted ardent supporters. Among likely caucus-goers who say their minds are made up, Paul leads with 32 percent, followed by Romney at 25 percent and Gingrich, a former House speaker, at 17 percent.
Among Paul supporters who backed him in the 2008 caucuses, 69 percent are still with him now.
Poll participant Sarah Stang, 78, a retired teacher who lives in Osage, Iowa, said she switched parties four years ago so she could vote for Paul.

Paterno is a devout Catholic. It must have grated on him tremendously if Spanier was doing this. Another thing, I got the impression Spanier was gay, yet Wikepeia shows him with a wife, Barbara(full English professor, by the way, and two grown kids. Perhaps just a liberal thinker, full of himself and in a power position.

Chelsea Clinton Hired To Report for NBC
Added: 5 hours ago
******************************************
******************************************

Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton will start work immediately as the newest correspondent for the network of Al Sharpton ,Rachel Maddow,and Ed Schultz

Chelsea Clinton, daughter of Bill and Hillary, is 31 years old and just landed a $300,000-a-year job on Wall Street, to be on the board of directors of Hollywood mogul Barry Diller‘s IAC (InterActive Corp), an internet company with over 50 brands across 40 countries headquartered in New York City.

Georg Szalai reports
for The Hollywood Reporter, Oct 5, 2011, the IAC says Chelsea’s “skills
and background complement the existing areas of expertise of other
board members,” but her appointment is “seen by some as a celebrity
appointment.”
Clinton will be paid about $300,000 a year in cash and incentive stock awards.

Steven Davidoff, a commentator for the New York Times’ DealBook, wrote:

““Ms. Clinton has this position only because she is the daughter of
former President Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham Clinton, the current
secretary of state. This is clearly an appointment made because of who
she is, not what she has done, one that defies American conceptions of
meritocracy. The real question is whether Ms. Clinton can act
independently and provide value to the IAC board. While there are many
doubts on that score – and while Ms. Clinton clearly did not earn this
position – she can still demonstrate that she is up to the task.”
Davidoff also highlighted that IAC’s board is full of Diller friends,
including former Walt Disney boss Michael Eisner, Warner Music chairman
Edgar Bronfman Jr. and Diller’s stepson. In fact, the corporate
governance research firm GovernanceMetrics International has cited
governance concerns about IAC’s board.

Back to your regularly scheduled football game.

MNHawk on November 15, 2011 at 7:27 AM

Forfeit the final two games?

How about announcing the END of the athletic program for two years? All programs.

It’s what they’re going to end up doing anyway. This thing gets deeper and deeper and they simply fall back to another trench toward the rear.

Why not just accept the fact that is going to be crucifyingly painful for the school and make a decision to completely rebuild the athletic programs after a two year cooling off?

All coaches – FIRED – sorry, but you will never work here again.

Oh – that’s too punitive you say? Well, a big part of the problem seemed to be coaches inability to do anything but report the problem – none of them put their jobs on the line to stop this guy and that’s what should have happened.

Cancel all athletics for a period of two years – then put in place a policy to hire completely new coaches.

It will DESTROY Penn State’s athletic program and knock it down to a third-rate college for over a decade.

That’s what has to happen though if the college wants people to think they’re serious.

You’re probably right regarding the Penn State institution.

maverick muse on November 15, 2011 at 7:42 AM

This makes me sick to my stomach. Are we ever going to let our children participate in sports again? I am thinking NO.

Parenting, nothing easy about the job. You’re damned if you’re a stage/soccer mom and damned if you’re not one of the kids’ dad-volunteer coaches.

Sports: “it’s just a game” vs. “winning is everything”. Games are fun, sports are hard work. Parental oversight is imperative. How much of one’s “healthy” life should be dedicated to a “game”? None? Pfft. America’s entire “growing up” experience at school is centered around football/sports. Penn State rape isn’t going to stop high school varsity sports or any other university sports program.

By the time kids go to college, that’s one thing, scary enough for “responsibility”. While they’re still living at home and not old enough to legally drive, they’re still kids needing parental oversight. Parents weren’t included in the big kid football camps, obviously. But there HAD to have been rumors.

Kids and adults need to understand how to protect themselves from predators, particularly when they’re most vulnerable, wanting to reach a goal while being challenged/assaulted. So what’s more important, and what’s lost, given the alternatives. Face up to these things beforehand or procrastinate; either way, danger exists. “Be prepared.” Kids, have a plan and a way to contact the parents with a safe word, to get you out and intervene.

Priestly pedophiles. Ever going to Mass again? Same dilemma. Nothing wrong with studying and researching , though fair warning, revelations often are painful experiences. Don’t get stuck in the mire of politics and man made power structures ordering your spirit. Point is, “God” warned people what not to trust.

The human mind and what we make of things occupies life, though the sun isn’t going to rise or set based on anyone’s achievement or trauma.

maverick muse on November 15, 2011 at 8:10 AM

That’s what has to happen though if the college NCAA wants people to think they’re serious.

Fixed, as I’m quickly losing my taste to watch any football game.

THEY ALL KNEW about this guy, to some extent.

MNHawk on November 15, 2011 at 8:20 AM

What I like is the story of the DA who was given the info about this stuff going on in, I believe, 1998 and didn’t prosecute anyone. He has now been missing since 2005.

Don’t forget you played a football game. That means the “healing” has begun. Don’t ask me how a child heals from that kind of abuse because of a football game is being played, I’ll leave that for Penn State fans to answer.

Yes, Penn State fans, who dutifully filled up that stadium to continue to cheer on the program responsible for this.

Penn State students rioting in support of covering up child rape is the picture Penn State University is putting forth to the world.

The pattern of covering up, to keep the gravy train of money coming in isn’t limited to the football program at Penn State, as those of us following Michael Mann’s falsified science already know. Penn State is an institution rotten to the core.
