Jerry Sandusky was on Rock Center last night. First of all, to the producers of Rock Center, I don't like your name. It sounds too much like 30 Rock or like I am going to see a concert. Now, anyway, Sandusky was interviewed by Bob Costas by phone and said that he is innocent and not a pedophile.
"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."
When asked by Costas to concede any wrongdoing, Sandusky said, "I shouldn't have showered with those kids."
His attorney then said that some of the 8 boys will say nothing happened and that the boy that was allegedly being raped in the shower says nothing happened and that the assistant coach who reported it is lying.
I think Sandusky is guilty, guilty, guilty. Do I think he is going to walk free? Probably because no one in that town will want to convict him and they will be swayed by all the people who get up on the stand and say what a wonderful guy he is. Those are the same people who probably were not molested as kids and also probably knew that this guy has been doing this for years but want to protect him. The guy has been meeting kids through his charity and then abusing them. Did anyone expect him to say he was guilty last night?
