Damning testimony in Penn State child abuse case

BELLEFONTE, Pa. — The young man identified in court documents as “Victim 1” sobbed in court Tuesday as he testified that Jerry Sandusky sexually assaulted him multiple times in the basement of Sandusky’s home.

The witness, now 18 and just five days removed from his high school graduation, said the abuse occurred when he was in middle school, and that Sandusky was enraged when he cut off contact.
Read the rest here.

I almost feel bad for the defense lawyers. This case is so lopsided it is the epitome of the term "open and shut case." Still even a sick @#$% like Sandusky is entitled to his day in court. But if the man had an ounce of decency he would have pleaded guilty and spared his victims from the trauma of having to recount his perverted crimes in an open court room. Purely on an emotional basis this makes me regret my opposition to capital punishment. It's not very Christian. But this creep is a walking advertisement for the gallows.

All I am saying is, if we still had a culture of seppuku, Sandusky's family would be spared the shame of this trial.
