Goodbye, Jerry

Jerry Sandusky is completely delusional.  You might have figured that out when it all came to light that he had been abusing small boys for years and years.  But he was sentenced the other day to a prison term which wasn't long enough in my opinion, but which will amount to essentially a life sentence for the elderly pervert.  When given the opportunity in court to make a statement, he (of course) chose to ramble on and blame his victims.  He just cannot stop victimizing, apparently.  Let's take a look at some of his more egregious statements. 

According to ABC News (and the fact that it actually happened), he said  "First, I looked at me, my vulnerability, my naivety [sic] (some say stupidity) and my trust in people," he wrote. "There were so many people involved in the orchestration of this conviction (media, investigators, prosecutors, 'the system,' Penn State, and the accused).  It was well done. They won!" Um, I'm going to disagree the most with the "They won!" sentiment.  I'm not so sure that anyone "won" in this instance, you sick bastard.  You raped small children.  They didn't "win" anything.  And your vulnerability?  Your naivete?  Your trust in people?  Oh, please.  Those were all ways that the children were and they were all the ways that you used to have your way with them.  I can't believe he actually had the nerve to sit there in court and say these things in front of some of those victims.  I don't know that I would have been able to compose myself if I had been one of them.  Jesus. 

He also said "I have been blamed for all of (the victims') failures and shortcomings, but nobody mentioned the impact of the people who spent much more time with them than I did;. Nobody mentioned the impact of abandonment, neglect, abuse, insecurity, and conflicting messages that the biological parents might have had in this."  Nobody mentioned people that spent much more time with those kids than you did because those people didn't rape them!  And all of those problems that you mentioned were exactly the traits that you looked for in your victims!  Good Lord.  This man is clearly delusional. 

But maybe not as delusional as his wife.  Yes, she too wrote a letter to the judge where she made Jerry Sandusky out to sound like a saint, while at the same time, blaming the victims and everyone else.  A portion of her letter reads like this:  "I use to believe in our protective system, but now have no faith in the police or legal system. To think that they can lie and get by with the lies. The press has been unbelievable. People who have not met us are writing untruths.
As far as our son Matt goes, people need to know what kind of person he is. We have forgiven him many times for all he has done to our family thinking that he was changing his life, but he would always go back to his stealing and lies. He has been diagnose with Bipolar, but he refuses to take his medicine. He has had many run-ins with the law and stolen money and items from our family. We still love him and want the best for him, but because of his actions we cannot express this to him."   Oh, there's some lying going on, all right.

I find all of this absolutely astounding.  Right, there was a HUGE conspiracy to frame Jerry Sandusky for doing all of the horrific things that he did.  And that reason was because...what now?  What was the reason for this intrinsically orchestrated fraud that was perpetrated upon him?  I mean, he even blamed Penn State!  They were the ones that allowed him unlimited access to children and unlimited access to areas wherein for him to commence all the raping!  How is Penn State in on this again, you moron? 

Again, I'm disappointed that he only got between 30-60 years.  I would have preferred at least a one hundred year sentence simply for symbolic reasons.  Even though he's never getting out, it still didn't feel like enough.  But maybe during the time that he has left (and I hope it's a lot of it so that he can sit in there and suffer) he'll be able to give up all of this blaming everyone else crap and just own up to what he did.  It's not going to change anything, but it's a hell of a lot better than saying that it was all a big conspiracy!
