The public was shocked when allegations first surfaced that Jerry Sandusky had molested children. Not only was it sickening to hear the content of these stories, but they had a rather disturbing implication. How could this coach get away with these crimes for so long?
The truth is, there’s simply no way a high-profile person like Sandusky could do that over and over again for decades without someone seeing it, and failing to do anything about it. It turns out that “someone” may have been more than one person.
Recently, court documents surfaced which reveal that at least 2 assistant coaches may have witnessed Sandusky molesting minors as far back as the 1980’s. Anonymous sources with NBC have claimed that 4 additional coaches witnessed these acts over the years, 3 of which have gone on to work with the NFL and Division I colleges. The court documents also reveal that Joe Paterno was allegedly told by a child that he was molested, 25 years before Paterno had supposedly heard anything about this
Paterno died of lung cancer several months after being fired from head coach of Penn State, over allegations that he knew about Sandusky’s abuse. The as yet unnamed victim claims that Paterno ordered him drop the accusation against Sandusky back in 1971.
Considering all these allegations, it’s hard to believe that Jerry Sandusky got away with these crimes for decades by sheer luck. It’s becoming more apparent that a lot of his colleagues looked the other away, couldn’t believe it, or covered it up.
