This was Sandusky's feeding ground. He did'nt give a **** about these children. Only the Lord knows how many more children were violated by this piece of ****.Many children face adversity even before they understand how to dream. The Second Mile, founded in 1977 in State College, Pennsylvania, is a statewide non-profit organization for children who need additional support and who would benefit from positive human contact. The Second Mile plans, organizes, and offers activities and programs for children - and adults who work with them - to promote self-confidence as well as physical, academic, and personal success.

"It was like he was Jason on 'Friday the 13th' -- man just wouldn't go down," - Honolulu bar patron on Trent Williams being tasered and smashed over the head with a champagne bottle.
Bolden was Jay's baby. This was going to be the guy who could prove that Jay could develop a QB. I'm convinced the only reason he has taken snaps this year is because Jay needed him out there. Jay needed Bolden to become a star.

Most of these types of abusers actually like helping kids. I would bet dollars to donuts that you could take a survey of that program and the vast majority of kids had a wonderful experience and love Sandusky. What often happens is that the abuser sees the sex as more "help." It becomes a twisted expression of love. I've noticed that there are no charges of violence or physical abuse against Sandusky. I find that interesting.
Remember when Michael Jackson was interviewed and said that the most loving thing you can do with someone is share a bed with them? I think he actually believed that. And I suspect that Sandusky had similar thoughts (assuming that everything is true). In a weird way, it's possible that Sandusky is telling the truth when he says that he is not guilty, because he believes he did nothing wrong.
This is what makes child sexual abuse so hard to discover and why treatment is so difficult. It's not like physical abuse where you can work on anger management or remove a variable like alcohol or drugs.
Here is something that is almost certain, by the way: Someone sexually abused Jerry Sandusky in his youth. Probably around age 10.

I'm trying not to be preachy but some of the discussion on this is devolving into "Don't get into dangerous blue vans" territory. Sandusky does not come across as Buffalo Bill from Silence of the Lambs. And there are sadly an awful lot of men just like him in similar positions.
So, Second Mile's real BoD were told in 2002 that an incident had occurred with Sandusky and an underaged boy in the showers at Penn State, but they were never made aware of more serious allegations. Instead, they waited until 2008 to take action when Sandusky told them he was under investigation before removing him from programs involving children.
Now, looking at that who's who list of the Honorary BOD above, is there any wonder that there was such hesitance to make waves, between the power of the Penn State football program and that sort of backing?
Sandusky's pattern of abuse is so specific. Often there is a pattern, but his borders on OCD.
I'm no doctor or psychologist but it happens enough where there is a correlation.
Mark Wahlberg is on the board, eh?
That was a surprising one.
