Never underestimate the Power of Human Stupidity!

The Bullies should be Publicly identified so that everyone can know who to keep an eye on.

The only people who "Defend" pedophiles are other pedophiles.

This is horrible news. How was it that his name leaked out to other kids? I wish they would expel the bullies, but we all know that will never happen. Poor kid. I hope he gets millions from this - it will help at least in a small way.

I would rather he got over it. Compensation would have been helping and empathy after the fact and thats been totally blown. Sandusky needs long incarcerated treatment to the point he admits he has an adult that should have known better and it was wrong (assuming he is guilty), he is sorry and he will not do it again/and will get help if he feels the urge to. .

But as it is looking like violent assault he probably should do more time for dealing with that.

Under no circumstances shoudl anyone profit from this.

"Under no circumstanĀ­ces shoudl anyone profit from this."

I doubt any of the victims receiving monetary damages will consider it profit, they probably won't even consider it getting back to even.

If you could wave your magic wand and offer them the choice of the money or of it never having happened in the first place, I bet they'd all turn down the money.

Ironically this is probably what causes more problems than the abuse. Its weird emotional abuse, neglect and physical abuse play second fiddle to fondling.

From looking at the charges there are two cases where accusations of sexual assault exist. The rest are grossly inappropriate "relationships" between Sandusky and young boys.

Fondling? Is that what we call anal rape these days?

Victim one didn't claim sexual assault - so the other kids in his school are probably outdoing the abuse Sandusky initiated. Unlike Sandusky they are too young to comprehend their actions perhaps, but then their parents and the school is culpable. So now we are going backwards in fixing this.

As usual.

and I quote "Victim One testified he was forced into multiple sex acts between 2006 and 2008."

I believe any kind of physical sexual activity is considered assault when it involves a child. The parents and the school are not culpable for the sexual assault, they are culpable for allowing bullying to go on.

this is supremely messed up. this kid was brave and did the right thing, he doesn't deserve to be even more alienated.

does it really surprise you....raise your hand if you were called unpatriotic and all kinds of names because I had the guts to see the Iraq lie...it's part of this country's culture to pick on "smart" or true bravery... That is why I do everything I can to SHAKE self righteous people even if it questions their core faith....

Very sad. Children can be so cruel. I hope Victim 1 can still finish his education somehow. And I am sick of Sandusky's ugly mug.

This is why victims are hard to get to come forward. I wish I could say Karma would get them but usually bullys end up getting away with it.

and now it seems the victim is being victimized again....now by the public....ppl are so stupid

They can be, that's for sure. The school will need to answer for this.
