I just finished watching the ABC News' 20/20 program on Sandusky Victim #1 Aaron Fisher. The program brought out the great difficulty and bullying and persistence he had to undergo to get the point across. It took 3 years before Sandusky was arrested. Everybody believed 'that Sandusky walked on water'. They wouldn't believe his report.

It was really great. The boy that slew the giant.

I put his book in my shopping cart to be ordered later when it comes out.

I watched the interview last night on ABC'S 20/20 with Chris Cuomo. This is the story as I remember seeing it. Aaron Fisher, identified as victim #1, told his story in a very credible manner in the interview. He had signed up with the organization Second Mile at age 10. Sandusky soon started grooming him. He took him to major football games and started spending time with him. Sandusky told Aaron that he had a great future as an athlete. He started asking Aaron to his home. Aaron described the basement of Sandusky's home as having lots of game equipment and things to do. We now know what else went on in Sandusky's home.

Aaron told his Mom and they went together to the school office. The school official(s) there refused to believe him and to act in his defense. Aaron told of the great difficulty he had in pressing his story. We know that 3 years elapsed. He and his mother were upset enough to press the issue. They took the matter to the local police and then the state police without the school's intervention. The school officials (may have been the principal, names were given during the program) refused to believe him or to act to defend him. Sandusky would come into the school freely and during school hours and ask to see Aaron. The school would call Aaron to the office. They were going to deliver Aaron to Sandusky, whom they believed to be a saint trying to help Aaron. They had refused to believe that something was "going on". Aaron had to hide within the school so that he wouldn't be found. ABC news interviewed the Pennsylvania State Policeman. The police apparently hesitated at first but then started an investigation which led to the arrest and conviction. Parts of that interview were aired in ABC's 20/20 last night. They (ABC News) tried to query the 2 school officials but the school officials ran from the camera.

This news from Reuters:

Teen says Sandusky chased him in car as he ran away.

.....
When he was 15, Fisher broke down and told his mother, Dawn Daniels, and the school's principal, Karen Probst, that Sandusky was sexually abusing him.

This is much more action-movie-ish than I ever imagined. Hiding inside the school while Sandusky waited for him in the office? Being chased on foot by Sandusky driving *against* traffic?

Unreal. Just totally unreal. Sandusky was right about one thing: Aaron does have a bright future.

What's most damning about this story is it blows a giant hole into the rationale for Sandusky's appeal, which is that he didn't have enough time to prepare. He should have been preparing for his defense *LONG* before his arrest.

Aaron Fischer, you're my hero.

My new copy of Aaron's book arrived in my mail box this afternoon. I'm enthusiastic about reading it. Of course I haven't read it yet.

Thanks. I'll remember that. I had to stop reading Jaycee Lee Dugard's book. I was getting too upset.

I'm really getting a lot out of this book. I'm not finished with it yet however.

It talks about stuff I either had as a boy or stuff I've experienced in my recovery. Bad dreams. I had very bad dreams as a boy. I guess "he" had told me these things: If you ever tell, I will find you and kill you. The dreams I know I had then were repetitious and of reading in the newspaper that the police had found bodies hacked into pieces and put into various sewers around the city. I guess I also sleep walked. I remember once my sister asked why I was doing that.

When Aaron felt very troubled, he had "conversion symptoms". I had those, and I had them fairly recently. A couple weeks after the abuse and torture, I was still 12 ,we went to a swimming hole. The sight of boys swimming around (in swim trunks), made me very sick. I was sick for 2 days. Aaron got conversion symptoms when waiting for the Sandusky arrest. When I went to the big city to testify to an authoritative committee what happened when I was 12, my back became so intensively painful that I could barely walk. I had to request a wheel chair to change planes. Within 15 minutes after I was through giving my testimony, the pain eased. By the next day I was walking around the city in the sunshine.
