### Re: Penn State Paterno Provides Promotion for Pedophiles. . . .

Jury orders Penn State to pay McQueary $7.3 million: BELLEFONTE, Pa. - A jury on Thursday ordered Pennsylvania State University to pay$7.3 million to Mike McQueary, who blamed school officials for destroying his life and coaching career after he emerged five years ago as the star witness against Jerry Sandusky and the administrators accused of covering up Sandusky's sex attacks on boys.

It took four hours for the Centre County panel to find that Penn State officials lied to McQueary when they promised in 2001 to act on his report of seeing Sandusky sexually assault a boy in a campus shower, and then damaged his reputation when Sandusky was finally arrested a decade later.

The verdict, after a two-week trial, offered an unusual window into the searing impact of the serial sex-abuse case.

Jurors heard how McQueary - now jobless, divorced, and living with his parents - was targeted by avid Penn State fans who blamed his allegations for damaging the football program's reputation and for the firing of the school's legendary head coach, Joe Paterno. And they heard from current and former coaches and administrators who said McQueary lost his job as an assistant coach in a routine staff shake-up, and simply wasn't good enough to land another one.
. . . .
McQueary's award could grow larger in the coming weeks. Gavin still has to rule on his whistle-blower claim that Penn State ousted him from his $104,000-a-year assistant coaching job because he spoke out about Sandusky and school officials. . . . . And the jury's endorsement of his story could also spell trouble for three of those former officials awaiting trial on child-endangerment charges. McQueary is expected to play another starring role in their case, revisiting his 2012 turn on the witness stand, when he recounted for Sandusky jurors how he found the defensive coordinator sexually assaulting a boy in a locker-room shower and then reported what he saw to Paterno and two Penn State administrators. Throughout the trial, Penn State lawyers maintained that the school's decision not to renew McQueary's contract that year had nothing to do with his cooperation with the criminal investigation. "This is not a case about Jerry Sandusky," Conrad told the jury. "Any harm that Mike McQueary has suffered . . . is the result of his own failures." She did not read beyond the feelings of Paterno Rump-Swabs--people are angry and do not feel Paterno and his ilk suffered enough. Penn State--which was complicit in all of this since, well, they were all Penn State officials--is a "large anonymous deep pocket" ripe for being used for revenge. Should have settled. Better yet, should have done the right thing, but that probably is not Conrad's fault. Also, she may have had an unwilling client--unwilling to settle and all of that. Still: dumb, dumb, dumb argument. In video-recorded testimony shown to the jury, Bill O'Brien - who immediately succeeded Paterno in the head coaching job and has gone on to lead the Houston Texans - said he came to Penn State in 2012 with a list of his own staff he wanted to bring with him. He said that he never considered McQueary for a job and that his decision had nothing to do with Sandusky. Matt Rhule, Temple University's head coach and one of McQueary's longtime friends and former teammates, told jurors he deemed McQueary too unseasoned to offer him a job when he took over the Owls' program in 2013. "There was nothing remarkable about Mr. McQueary's resumé," Conrad, the lawyer for the university, told jurors. "He stayed at one school, under one head coach. He had not developed the contacts or the resumé to land a job in this competitive field of professional college football." But the jury clearly disagreed with those arguments. Understatement of the year. Among the claims it settled Thursday, the panel found that former university president Graham B. Spanier defamed McQueary in statements he released in November 2011 in which he publicly expressed support for two colleagues - then-athletic director Tim Curley and vice president Gary Schultz - charged with covering up Sandusky's crimes. The jury also found that Curley and Schultz lied to McQueary in 2001, when he told them what he had seen and they told him they would take care of it. See? Thus: Jurors awarded McQueary$1.15 million for the defamation, another $1.15 million for Curley and Schultz's misrepresentations, and$5 million in punitive damages DING!DING!DING!DING!.
. . . .
Since 2012, the school has paid more than $93 million to settle claims from 32 Sandusky accusers, and university officials have acknowledged the school bears some responsibility to the victims of its former assistant football coach, who is serving a 30- to 60-year prison sentence for the sexual abuse of 10 boys. So, after all of this, by fighting this case, you succeeded in bringing this whole sad affair right back in the lime light. Frankly, I am happy, because anytime the Paterno Rump-Swabs are upset is a "good thing." Jeremy Roebuck: The Inquirer --J.D. Mob of the Mean: Free beanie, cattle-prod and Charley Fan Club!

Ex-Penn State officials plead to charges in Sandusky case; Spanier left as lone defendant by Angela Couloumbis, Susan Snyder & Jeremy Roebuck HARRISBURG – After five years of maintaining their innocence, two former Pennsylvania State University administrators on Monday pleaded guilty to child endangerment for not reporting Jerry Sandusky's sexual abuse of children. The pleas in Dauphin County Court by ex-athletic director Tim Curley and former vice president Gary Schultz reflected an unexpected turn in the case, one of the largest scandals in the history of college athletics. They also narrowed the spotlight to the lone remaining defendant, former university president Graham Spanier, the once highly regarded administrator who led Penn State for 16 years. Jury selection in the three men's trial was slated to begin March 20. In return for their pleas, prosecutors dismissed felony conspiracy charges against Curley and Schultz. Each pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor, which carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison. Before I get all self-righteous, proving conspiracy may have been very difficult. ["Snip!"--Ed.] Spanier still faces the felony conspiracy and misdemeanor child endangerment charges stemming from his alleged failure to inform police or child welfare investigators of a 2001 report by Mike McQueary, then a football program graduate assistant, that he saw Sandusky, the former assistant coach, sexually assault a boy in a locker-room shower. ["Snip!"--Ed.] The prosecutors said the evidence would show that the defendants became aware of two incidents – one in 1998 and the other in 2001 – in which Sandusky was caught with boys in showers. In both cases, the men allegedly shared the information with Spanier. After the second, they met with Sandusky and ordered him not to bring boys onto campus. "But what you do to them in the privacy of your own shower. . . ." But, the prosecutors said, they made no effort to investigate or find the boy from the 2001 incident, and no effort to enforce the campus ban against Sandusky -- and in the process endangered other children. ["Snip!"--Ed.] The case has hinged on what exactly McQueary, a former Penn State quarterback hoping to join the coaching ranks, told first Paterno — and later Curley and Schultz — about what he saw in the shower in 2001. He described that scene in 2012 to jurors who ultimately convicted Sandusky of sexually assaulting multiple boys. In multiple trips to the witness stand in related proceedings, McQueary has asserted unequivocally that he made clear to the head coach and administrators that Sandusky’s conduct with the young boy was “way over the line and extremely sexual.” In their own grand jury testimony, Curley and Schultz maintained McQueary had failed to convey the seriousness of the incident, leaving them both under the impression that he witnessed merely questionable “horseplay.” A grown to middle-aged man . . . in a shower . . . with a child . . . "horseplay." I would laugh if the details conveyed by McQueary was anything but that. They also testified that’s how they described the incident to Spanier. But a series of 2001 emails — now key to the government's case — show that the men at least considered the situation serious enough to possibly warrant police intervention. For just The Horse Play? They ultimately rejected the idea of calling authorities, opting instead to bar Sandusky from bringing children on campus, to urge the former coach to submit to counseling and to inform his children's charity, the Second Mile, of the allegations. "The only downside for us is if the message isn't 'heard' and acted upon," Spanier wrote, signing off on the decision. "We then become vulnerable for not having reported it. … The approach you outline is humane and a reasonable way to proceed." "'Humane' and 'reasonable' because fuck the kids, we have GAMES to win! Well, yeah, 'fuck the kids.' HA!HA!HA!HA!" All three men had been informed in 1998 Could that be connected? Heavens to Betsy. about another investigation led by Penn State's campus police into a report that Sandusky had showered with and potentially abused a different boy. That case never led to charges, but Curley and Schultz corresponded frequently with then-police Chief Thomas Harmon about the progress of his investigation. So . . . like . . . no reason to inform the police about a witnessed abuse a few years later . . . no. That would be "inhumane" and, dare I write it, "unreasonable." Spanier was copied on at least two of those exchanges. Schultz kept his hand-written notes on the 1998 investigation in a locked file that investigators found years later. They read: "Other children? Is this opening of Pandora's box?" ["Snip!"--Ed.] But the case continues to divide many in the community, especially over what role if any their iconic football coach had in even indirectly allowing Sandusky to target or victimize children. Paterno was never charged with a crime. Because the Cunt died. Now, the focus will be squarely on Spanier, a marriage and family therapist by training and a family sociologist who himself said he suffered physical abuse at the end hands of his father, which left some of his supporters incredulous that he would conceal or ignore Sandusky’s attacks. “As I have stated in the clearest possible terms, at no time during my presidency did anyone ever report to me that Jerry Sandusky was observed abusing a child or youth or engaged in a sexual act with a child or a youth,” he wrote in a 2012 letter to the trustees. Born in South Africa — where his father fled from Nazi Germany — Spanier joined Penn State’s faculty in 1973. After a dozen years climbing the administrative ladder at other schools, he returned to Penn State as president in 1995. He has continued to live in the State College area and frequently is spotted at Penn State events and community gatherings. As part of his employment agreement, he continues to hold the position of professor at Penn State. He does not teach, but still draws a$600,000 salary.

["Snip!"--Ed.]

The Office of the Attorney General has wasted millions of dollars in state resources slow-playing a bogus case that relies on a falsely-exaggerated grand jury presentment,”Maribeth Roman Schmidt, a spokeswoman Cunt for Penn Staters for Responsible Stewardship, which has been highly critical of the university’s response to the crisis, said last week.

### Re: Penn State Paterno Provides Promotion for Pedophiles. . . .

The trial of the former president begins:
Testimony begins in trial of former Penn State president Graham Spanier:

The failure of Penn State's former president to report child molestation accusations against Jerry Sandusky allowed evil "to run wild," prosecutors said Tuesday at the start of Graham Spanier's trial. A defense attorney accused prosecutors of trying to "criminalize a judgment call." All crimes result from "judgment calls."

Opening statements got underway in the long-delayed criminal trial against Spanier, who faces felony charges of child endangerment and conspiracy for how he handled a 2001 report that the former assistant football coach had abused a boy in a team shower.

["Snip!"--Ed.]

Deputy Attorney General Patrick Schulte told jurors that Spanier and others agreed not to report Sandusky and, as a result, "evil in the form of Jerry Sandusky was allowed to run wild."

The attorney general's office's witness list includes two former Penn State officials who took plea deals in the case last week -- former vice president Gary Schultz and former athletic director Tim Curley.

It also includes a former Penn State lawyer, the onetime head of a charity for children founded by Sandusky, police and someone described only as "a confidential witness." Another potential witness is Mike McQueary, a graduate assistant coach who reported seeing Sandusky shower with the boy.

Defense attorney Sam Silver disputed any notion that his client and others didn't respond to the 2001 complaint about Sandusky.

"They made a decision they believed was appropriate under the circumstances," So did . . . HITLER!!! he said, accusing prosecutors of trying to "criminalize a judgment call."

The lawyer seems to at least have a decent grasp on how to win these sorts of trials. He almost certainly won't, but he's at least found a theory of the case that can paint the accused in an empathetic light. That he made a reasonable decision and is being witch-hunted based on results, and the key is to get the jury to think about the reasonable tough decisions they have made that maybe turned out bad, and how they would feel to he on trial for it.

It is a respectable strategy. I don't know if I'd be trying it in the media though, as he could blow himself out with the jury pool if the media reports it in a harsh light.

That did not take too long:
Jury reaches split verdict in trial of ex-PSU president Graham Spanier

Former Penn State President Graham Spanier is guilty of endangering the welfare of children but not guilty of another count of endangerment and a conspiracy charge, a jury has decided.

Despite the conviction, Judge John Boccabella permitted Spanier to remain free on bail pending sentencing.

Graham Spanier sat next to his attorney looking down at his phone in the quiet but heavily secured courtroom after the verdict was announced.

With the misdemeanor conviction, he faces a minimum sentence later this spring that - for most first-time offenders - falls between probation and 9 months in prison, but could range higher.

Wall this is rage inducing.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nc ... /99826214/
Penn State trustee Albert L. Lord said he is “running out of sympathy” for the “so-called” victims of former Nittany Lions assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, according to an email sent to The Chronicle of Higher Education.

Lord, a former CEO of student loan company Sallie Mae, also defended Graham Spanier, the dismissed Penn State president who was convicted of one count of child endangerment last week for his handling of complaints about Sandusky.

"Running out of sympathy for 35 yr old, so-called victims with 7 digit net worth," Lord said in the email sent Saturday. "Do not understand why they were so prominent in trial. As you learned, Graham Spanier never knew Sandusky abused anyone."

### Re: Penn State Paterno Provides Promotion for Pedophiles. . . .

Unfortunately, Gram, there is a worship of the Cunt Paterno and his program by players and supporters that demonstrate that sports are, indeed, a cult.

This goes beyond mere "laundry worship" or the sort of nonsense I satirize about myself [Underwear worship.--Ed.] SHUT UP! Where people "live through" "My Team" where it is "WE won" and all of that. This is akin to the findings from the seminal When Prophecy Fails that when a cult has a challenge, it weeds out the doubters and the "true believers" become stronger.

Pats Fans and Sports Dudes joked that Brady would have only been suspended two games if he broke his cell phone on his wife's face. Ha! Ha! Deflategate being the painful waste it was, "just for ifs," some wondered what would happen if a Sports Hero[Tm.--Ed.] like, say, Brady did abuse his wife.

Sadly, there would be defenders. "Gisele's always showing herself off!"

Then we have seen a similar case: Ben Rapesherburger.

I have to give credit to the Sports Dudes who declared it was easier to ignore/excuse/obfuscate what happened with "Big Ben" because there was no video--unlike "Ray Ray." This allows True Believers to make these excuses, pretend there is "another side" or "the girl asked for it."

There were some "Ray Ray" fans who when they only saw the video of him dragging his fiance out of the elevator, imagined she "did something" to justify what he did.

There is no Penn State video. Yet we have e-mails that the Cunt you quote conveniently ignored which proved is fucking well did know. But an e-mail is not video.

To answer my rhetorical: IF there was video of "Big Ben" or, say, Brady beating his wife or doing a Adrian Peterson on one of his kids, you would find far less defenders, but you would still find them.

With this cushion of willful ignorance--"how do you KNOW she didn't ask for it?!! STEEL CAN'T MELT JETS!!! WAKE UP!"--cultist can then feel persecuted. THAT really drives fans/cultists. You HAVE [Stop shouting.--Ed.] to be important/right if "everyone is against us!"

### Re: Penn State Paterno Provides Promotion for Pedophiles. . . .

Is there anything to say about the Nassar thing besides let the cunt die in jail however long it takes?

I thought about starting a new thread, but the case is so similar to the Penn state case that I thought I might just as well bring it up in this thread. I'm sure everyone's at least seen the headlines and knows basically what happened, but it's still shocking how he managed to get away with it for so many years and how many people failed to see what was happening and put a stop to it.

I guess I could start here for anyone not following too closely:

Sentencing Larry Nassar Is Only a Start
Any doubts that monsters can be real were put to rest by the more than 150 brave women and girls who told a Michigan judge over seven days how Dr. Larry Nassar molested them in the guise of treating them. Some of the abuse, which went on for decades, started when they were as young as 6. When Dr. Nassar committed his crimes, he was working as a doctor for the United States Olympic gymnastics team, for Michigan State University, for U.S.A. Gymnastics — the sport’s governing body — and elsewhere.

As agonizingly recounted during a sentencing hearing, several girls over the years turned to one authority or another for help, and received none. Adults who suspect a predator is on the prowl and do nothing are simply monsters in another form.

Dr. Nassar pleaded guilty to sexually molesting seven young athletes. Judge Rosemarie Aquilina guaranteed on Wednesday that he would never again be free, after sentencing him to 40 to 175 years in prison.

But he is not the only one who deserves to be called to account. An investigation commissioned by U.S.A. Gymnastics and released last year found that its board repeatedly turned a blind eye to Dr. Nassar’s abuses. An investigative series by The Indianapolis Star found that the organization had covered up accusations of abuses by many coaches, not just Dr. Nassar. Three key board members, including the chairman, Paul Parilla, resigned on Monday.

That’s a start, but it’s not enough. The United States Olympic Committee said it is considering decertifying U.S.A. Gymnastics, but the Olympic committee was also slow to act in the Nassar case. What changes will it implement to ensure that such widespread harm to American athletes doesn’t happen under its watch again?

The resignation on Wednesday of Lou Anna Simon, the president of Michigan State, where Dr. Nassar’s medical practice was based, was overdue. Though Michigan State has denied covering up Dr. Nassar’s crimes, reporting by The Detroit News found that 14 university officials were told of Dr. Nassar’s sexual misconduct in the two decades before he was arrested, and that at least eight women had reported his actions. Michigan State continued to allow Dr. Nassar to see patients for 16 months while he was under criminal investigation after a 2014 allegation of sexual assault by a patient.

The athletic trainers, assistant coaches, university police officers and other school officials who let Dr. Nassar’s abuse go on should also step down. The N.C.A.A., which is investigating the matter, should consider sanctions against Michigan State, including banning it from postseason play for some period, as it did Penn State’s football program after the former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky was convicted of molesting children over a period of 15 years.

In all these instances, including cases detailed by Harper’s Magazine in an article on competitive swimming, athletic glory, or the glow reflected onto those surrounding and enriching themselves from young athletes, blinded adults to their real responsibilities.

Protecting the image of the Olympic team, a gymnastics program and a university seems to have meant more to these adults than protecting children. In the end they protected nothing and no one and ruined their own reputations as well.
There's also this:
https://www.vox.com/identities/2018/1/1 ... -explained
Judge Aquilina, however, wasn’t moved. She read aloud a letter Nassar had submitted to the court during his hearing, in which he complained about the length of the survivors’ testimony, deriding it as a media circus, and accusing the survivors of fabricating their testimony. The courtroom gave a collective gasp after the judge read Nassar’s words: “Hell hath no fury like a women scorned.”
“It is my honor and privilege to sentence you,” the judge told Nassar. “You do not deserve to walk outside a prison ever again. You have done nothing to control those urges and anywhere you walk, destruction will occur to those most vulnerable.”
Buh-bye, Cunt.

No, other than:
Buh-bye, Cunt.
At least I am unaware of scores of "Nassar-Pa" fans gathering to excuse his crimes.

No one fought to "reinstate his wins!" and, as far as I know, no one wants to bring back a statue of him.

As trite as it may be, I hope "the Sisters" find him:

Larry Nassar case: Michigan police apologise to victim
Michigan police have offered a public apology to a woman whose complaint against ex-USA gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar was ignored in 2004.

"We wish we had this one back", police chief Dave Hall said.

Brianne Randall-Gay was 17 years old when she reported Nassar, but police closed the case after he said he was using a medical technique.

Nassar has been accused of sexual abuse by 265 women. He received 40 to 175 years in jail in a separate hearing.

Chief Hall said at a news conference on Thursday that Meridian Township police had been "deceived" by Nassar, who was also a sports doctor for nearby Michigan State University (MSU).

"It should have been passed on to another expert and it wasn't," he said, adding that it was a misstep.

Ms Randall-Gay and her mother reported Nassar's abuse and told authorities he rubbed her breasts and attempted to penetrate her with his fingers, without gloves, according to a police report.

"I felt I was ignored," said Ms Randall-Gay, who was seeking medical advice for a back injury.

Nassar had defended himself by saying he applied pressure to the "perineum", or an area between the legs, to manipulate a ligament, according to the police report.

He provided to police a PowerPoint presentation about the ligament procedure and the case was closed.

Township Manager Frank Walsh said Nassar showed officers a "stack of medical journals".

"He duped us," Mr Walsh said.

Father of the Year.

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/ac ... ng-n844031
The father of three girls who say they were molested by gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar "lost control" during a sentencing hearing Friday, charged at the defendant and was wrestled to the flood by sheriff's deputies.

"Let me have that son of a bitch," the father, Randall Margraves, shouted after he lunged at the table where Nassar was sitting. "Give me one minute with that bastard!"

...

Margraves, 58, later apologized for the outburst, and the judge let him go without any punishment or charges.

There was widespread sympathy for Margraves on social media, and several unauthorized fundraising accounts popped up. At a press conference later in the day, Margraves said he didn't need the money and didn't feel like a "hero."

But he made it clear that his hatred of Nassar had not dissipated.

"I can only hope that when the day comes that Larry Nassar has ended his days on this earth that he will be escorted to one of the deepest, darkest, hottest pits in hell there is."

I thought about starting a new thread, but the case is so similar to the Penn state case that I thought I might just as well bring it up in this thread. I'm sure everyone's at least seen the headlines and knows basically what happened, but it's still shocking how he managed to get away with it for so many years and how many people failed to see what was happening and put a stop to it.
Well, go look at any one of the threads in politics that are raging against the idea that accusations of sexual assault should be taken more seriously, and then his getting away with it for so long makes a bit more sense.

One more fact about Larry Nassar that escaped my attention until I heard about it today.

He was not an M.D. but a D.O. (doctor of osteopathy). Whether that is particularly relevant or not, I don't know. I don't mean to impugn other D.O.s by association, I just wonder if it played any role at all. Do some osteopaths specialize in sports medicine?

Osteopathy is an "easier" school to get into. In order to be licensed, they have to satisfy the same academic requirements. They can enter internships and residencies and the like.

It is not as if they can just do joint manipulation and wave some incense and call themselves OBGYN specialists.
