|Jerry Sandusky: the flags were there all along|
But the sad fact it that this case could get a whole lot uglier...
Obviously there's more questions than answers at this point: like how the wife, family, and Penn State associates of Jerry Sandusky all justified covering for such hideous crimes. About the only ones not asking these things might be the mob of morally-retarded Penn State fans who actually rioted over the firing of Paterno yesterday.
But recall that the OSU Buckeyes lost Jim Tressel earlier this year because he covered for players selling a couple jerseys… what did they possibly expect at Penn State, then. Paterno had plenty of warnings, and somehow just didn’t do the right thing. Get over it, Penn State fans- a luxury the victims -who may number as many as 17- will probably never enjoy.
One thing people are talking about today is how the initial 1998 investigation into the vile predatory habits of Jerry Sandusky went nowhere. All of us -along with his subsequent targets- are left wondering why nothing ever happened when there'd been firsthand witnesses and even a direct admission.
Thirteen years ago when Centre Country DA Ray Gricar was working the case against Sandusky, he quite mysteriously failed to ever bring charges, despite the wealth of evidence... but it doesn't look like anybody's going to get to ask him about it, except for St Peter maybe:
Gricar just as mysteriously went missing after telling his girlfriend he was to go for a day off drive in the park... the DA was never seen nor heard from again. His red Mini Cooper was found soon afterward, cellphone still on the seat. , Ray Gricar
Investigators said internet searches conducted from Ray Gricar's house on that day he vanished in 2005 include "how to wreck a hard drive" and "water damage to notebook computer", among other things. Three months after Gricar's disappearance, his government-issued notebook was found by a fisherman, sans hard drive. Three months after that, that heavily damaged hard drive was found along the same river's banks. The tough Gricar had just busted a major heroin ring, and was at the crest of his career- why on Earth would he be afraid to go after a child molester?
Recall a few years back, where they busted that Belgian child-sex ring... one that not only swapped playthings amongst themselves -often their own children- but enforced the security of the operation with violent, mafia-style manipulation and even vengeance killings?
Seems this case is beginning to acquire a similar stench... Sandusky certainly had his helpers, and now perhaps we'll be finding out who all they were, as well as just how far they were willing to go to protect the oh-so-very sick and dangerous Jerry Sandusky.
