I have to admit, Ive not been watching the Sandusky trial as closely as many have. The entire thing upsets me to no end. I have however been following the trial updates at the end of the day.
How could an entire university turn such a blind eye to the suffering and rape of so many young boys over the years? Its blatantly obvious that ‘the game’ and the image of this school far outweighed the safety of so many young men who would fall victim to Jerry Sandusky. Just push the secrets under the rug, take away Jerry’s shower room key and never speak of it again.
This may explain how the university dealt with it, but what about his wife, Dottie? How did she go to sleep every night beside the man she had to have known was abusing young boys? How did she allow her own children and grandchildren to be around this man?She says she “didn’t know” what was going on.
Come on. . . how could she NOT know?! You mean to tell me she couldnt hear the cries from the basement? She couldnt see the looks on the boys faces as the emerged from the basement after having been raped by Jerry Sandusky? She didn’t once question why her husband had such a penchant for having young boys spending the night at their house and then keeping them, along with himself in the basement the entire evening?
Charity is a good thing, and more people should pay it forward. That being said, somewhere along the line it had to have hit her that something was just “not right” about all of his doings and associations with young boys.
When your husband wants to spend his every Saturday with his friends watching football, or go on fishing/hunting trips with them, you may become angry at him, maybe even suspicious of him possibly having an affair.
When your husband wants to spend every Saturday in the company of young boys and have them ‘camp out’ in your basement, you SHOULD become suspicious of him for a far different reason.
This kind of behavior is just not natural in anyone except a pedophile. Yes Dottie . . . you’re husband is PEDOPHILE! But you’ve known this all along; haven’t you? Even if you never verbalized this, you knew, you felt something just ‘wasn’t right’ in all of this. Why you chose to turn such a blind eye I suspect we will never know.
