The Penn State Predator is back in the news. Some jerk (John Zeigler) came on the TODAY show with jail house interviews of Sandusky. He still maintains his innocence (despite being found guilty over 40 counts of child sexual abuse and being confronted with the reality of his own son coming forward to put pressure on the trial at the last minute).
Is it free speech? Maybe.
Is it news? Probably not.
Is it morally reprehensible? You bet your azz.
Giving criminals media profiles has long been a source of contention, but this takes the cake. How disrespectful to the men and boys who Jerry raped, abused, and manipulated for years. Now they want to let him make public news statements that he didn't do it and that he is innocent? That the "skin slapping" sounds were not sex as he raped a young boy but were just him and a boy in the shower chasing each other.
I don't think it is an accident that the trial only took a few days. I don't think it was surprising that the jury found him guilty.
I hope he drops the soap.
My inner child transforms into an inner demon.
I am filled with rage and vitriol,
anger demands the head of the beast!
How DARE THEY give him a microphone and mock those boys!!
Damn the PRESS!
