“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 am innocent of those charges.”
In all my time at high school and beyond, I have never ever been in the locker room after a game or before when the guys were dressing or undressing, when the Coach was in there. He never was. Of course, I never thought of him walking in. At the time, if any one walked in when I was undressing, I would have rathered it been a girl. Hormones are raging at that age as we all know. Young men do not want an older man around in the locker room.
But for Jerry Sandusky say on national television that he had showered after workouts and hugged the boys and touched their legs, I don’t care what he said, there was sexual intent.
Coaches don’t touch the players! Especially when they are naked.
This morning the reporting on this was that one of the victims parents came forward and was not happy with the statement by Sandusky, that I put above. That has to be an understatement. If I had been a parent, the Coach would have been castrated, and I would have probably ended up in prison. No body touches my kids, unless they are married to them. PERIOD!
The idea that he hugged them in the shower and touched their knees is laughable at best if it wasn’t sexual. Pediphiles seem to be just like politicians when it comes to their excuses. Lies are always believed that they will be accepted. Remember Clinton, and his “I did not have sex with that woman.” Oral sex is sex no matter how you look at it!
The story, that I got from the Associated Press, said this:
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — A day after the former Penn State assistant football coach who is charged with sexual abuse of boys declared his innocence in a television interview, an email surfaced from a key witness against him, saying he stopped an alleged attack in the team’s showers.
Mike McQueary, the graduate assistant who a grand jury report said saw Jerry Sandusky allegedly sodomizing a boy in the locker room, said he stopped the act and went to police. That added confusion to the already emotionally raw situation that has enveloped Penn State University and resulted in the firing of coach Joe Paterno, the ousting of president Graham Spanier and charges of perjury against the athletic director and a former senior vice president.
The Nov. 8 email from McQueary to a friend, made available to The Associated Press, said: “I did stop it, not physically … but made sure it was stopped when I left that locker room … I did have discussions with police and with the official at the university in charge of police …. no one can imagine my thoughts or wants to be in my shoes for those 30-45 seconds … trust me.”
McQueary is a former player and current assistant coach who was placed on indefinite paid leave last week after school officials said he had received threats. Emails sent to him seeking comment were not immediately returned.
He told the friend that he felt he was “getting hammered for handling this the right way … or what I thought at the time was right … I had to make tough impacting quick decisions.”
The grand jury report issued Nov. 5, the day Sandusky was charged with 40 criminal counts for alleged sexual abuse against eight boys over 15 years, goes into considerable detail about the March 2002 incident. McQueary was putting sneakers into his locker late on a Friday night when, the jury said, he saw Sandusky having sex with a young boy.
He left, “distraught,” and contacted his father and then head coach Joe Paterno, jurors said. McQueary later met with athletic director Tim Curley and vice president Gary Schultz to describe what he had seen, the grand jury said. Curley and Schultz are charged with not alerting authorities to the report and lying to the grand jury. Paterno lost his job last week, but has not been charged and is not considered a target of investigators, state prosecutors have said.
As a result of the scandal, Curley and Schultz have left their posts, and university president Graham Spanier was also forced out of his job. U.S. Steel said Tuesday Spanier has resigned from its board, where he had been a director since 2008.
On Monday night, Sandusky said in an NBC television interview that he showered with and “horsed around” with boys but was innocent of criminal charges, a statement that has stunned legal observers. Sandusky’s comments, they said, could be used by prosecutors trying to convict him of child sex-abuse charges.
“Mr. Sandusky goes on worldwide television and admits he did everything the prosecution claims he did, except for the ultimate act of rape or sodomy? If I were a prosecutor, I’d be stunned,” said Lynne Abraham, the former district attorney of Philadelphia. “I was stunned, and then I was revolted.”
Abraham, who led a grand jury probe involving 63 accused priests from the Philadelphia archdiocese, was retained this week to lead an internal investigation of The Second Mile, the children’s charity founded by Sandusky, from which he allegedly culled his victims.
Sandusky told NBC News’ “Rock Center” he was not a pedophile, but in retrospect should not have showered with boys.
Oh you think??????
“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,” Sandusky told Bob Costas. “I am innocent of those charges.”
When Costas asked him whether he was sexually attracted to underage boys, Sandusky replied: “Sexually attracted, no. I enjoy young people, I love to be around them, but, no, I’m not sexually attracted to young boys.”
Sandusky apparently decided to talk to Costas by phone Monday at the last minute, with the blessing of his attorney, Joseph Amendola, who was in the studio.
“What was especially astonishing about Sandusky’s interview is — and this will be the big moment in court — is when he stumbled over the question about whether he was sexually attracted to children,” said crisis management expert Eric Dezenhall, who runs a Washington consulting firm. “That may not be legal proof that he’s guilty, but it is certainly not helpful, to struggle with the question.”
The state grand jury investigation that led to Sandusky’s arrest followed a trail that goes back at least 13 years, leading to questions from some quarters about whether law enforcement moved too slowly.
It seems that every time the liberals and some of the republicans too get away with a lie, it gets easier for the rest of the nation to follow suit. And I don’t know about you, but I am sick and tired of the media and the left doing everything they can to change the reality of the truth. The bad part of that is…the truth is always the truth……but the left is changing even that constant.
The Republican party now, is falling for the stunts of the left, and it is time to stop. Stop the left from continuing their ruination of this great nation. It’s time the right took over and stopped liberalism in it’s tracks. Conservatism must win in 2012! The lies stop now. But be vigilant. The left won’t stop trying, until they are destroyed.
Rmember, America is diverse because it’s great. It’s time to remember this and use it as a rallying cry to save America.
May God Bless our efforts to help get America back, and put God back into our country
God Bless America, Bless all Americans, and bless us to start using more common sense.
