|"Man I didn't see nothing!"|
Normally university mascot names are brought on by something out of the states history. For example Oklahoma is known as the Sooner state because of the Oklahoma land rush of 1889. Tennessee is known as the Volunteer state because during the war in 1812 between the United States and Britain 2,000 Tennessee residents volunteered to fight.
So I guess that we've got to change the Pennsylvania nickname from the Nittany Lions to the Nittany Ostriches in light of everyone just sticking their heads in the sand in State College. Former long time assistant and at one time heir apparent to Joe Paterno, Jerry Sandusky, has been charged with multiple counts of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, corruption of minors, endangering the welfare of a child, indecent assault and unlawful contact with minor, as well as single counts of aggravated indecent assault and attempted indecent assault.
What I'm trippin' on is the fact that this has been going on for more than 15 years and no one has ever bothered to call the police including Joe Paterno! How can you be aware of these allegations and never call the authorities bruh?
The first case to come to light was a boy who met Sandusky when he was 11 or 12, the grand jury said. The boy received expensive gifts and trips to sporting events from Sandusky, and physical contact began during his overnight stays at Sandusky's home, jurors said. Eventually, the boy's mother reported the allegations of sexual assault to his high school, and Sandusky was banned from the child's school district in Clinton County in 2009. That triggered the state investigation that culminated in charges Saturday.
Why wasn't the police called right away? Banning him from the school district just says that you can't do that over here. It's like catching your neighbor's kid behind your house smoking weed and telling him to take that somewhere else. You see his folks daily but never tell them that their kid is getting high.
Another child, known only as a boy about 11 to 13, was seen by a janitor pinned against a wall while Sandusky performed oral sex on him in fall 2000, the grand jury said. Also in 2002, Kelly said, a graduate assistant saw Sandusky sexually assault a naked boy, estimated to be about 10 years old, in a team locker room shower. The grad student and his father reported what he saw to Paterno, who immediately told the athletic director and VP of finance for the university, prosecutors said. They didn't meet with the graduate assistant until about a week and a half later, Kelly said.
This is completely ridiculous! All of these people were either witnesses to or had knowledge of someone's child being sexually abused and essentially did nothing including the beloved Joe Pa! How do you get word that someone's child is being abused and take the easy road out by just telling the athletic director and the VP of Finance? Are you kidding me?
Let's keep it real or all the way 100, which ever comes first! Where I'm from they wouldn't have been able to recognize Sandusky by the time the police would have gotten there if someone would have caught him in the act. Justice would have been served well before the cops and the coroner arrived.
Joe Pa was only concerned about his legacy at the time he told the school officials. He didn't want the guy that was once his heir apparent to be arrested because it would've looked bad. What a Coward! Yes, I just said it bruh! Joe Paterno is a coward and should be fired immediately as a result of knowing of the incident and doing nothing. What have you always heard for years? If you know about it and do nothing you’re just as guilty! Jim Tressel was fired for less! Holla At Ya Boy!
Then he becomes real fake with it by releasing a statement and saying, "If true, the nature and amount of charges made are very shocking to me and all Penn Staters. While I did what I was supposed to with the one charge brought to my attention, like anyone else involved I can't help but be deeply saddened these matters are alleged to have occurred.
Shocked bruh? You've known about the incident since 2002! Where’s Chris Carter, KeyShawn, Tom Jackson and Coach Ditka when you need them most? C'Mon Man!! How can you sit in another recruit’s living room and tell his folks that you’re going to take care of their child when you couldn’t even call the police on your homeboy for the most egregious of crimes?
In my opinon, the Clinton School District, the A.D., the V.P, the janitor, the grad assistant, his father and Joe Pa should have all been arrested and in court yesterday. As a matter fact, go pick up the guy that built the freaking shower and haul him in too. It's a shame that someone that has meant so much to Penn State for so long is going to get run out of town for being a selfish coward instead of being a great football coach! I can see Joe Pa leaving town now bumping that Public Enemy, "911 is a Joke" joint with his seat leaned all the way back. If that was his boy then he knew the whole time bruh!
Holla at Ya Boy!
