i don't have a post title, it doesn't deserve one

I made the mistake of looking up testimony of the Sandusky trial.

Big Mistake! Because I am sick now.  Sicker about it that when the case came into light a year ago.  No need to go into the details of exactly what Gerry Sandusky did to children in his home and the showers at Penn State here on my family blog- but- something that digs into my skin and won't let go is- the Godlike status he and his coaching team had acquired in that town; and the reluctance of any informed adult, administrator or law enforcement to help!

One victim and his mother went to the police, and the officer listened to their story and then told them to go home and think about what they were doing.  He didn't want to help them pursue their allegations -  !  -  For football?   !   !  ?  !  !  Football???  For a football coach?  Just because Gerry Sandusky is a Penn State coach?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
A football coach's reputation is more important than the worth of a young boy's safety??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????For football?  Just for football?? How in the name of all that is holy could football command such action from
a whole community?  What is wrong here?  Something is so wrong here!!  Football cannot possibly be that wonderful.  It just can't.  What is wrong with that town?  What is wrong with those administrators who were covering up.  Football and money???  Oh- I can't express my disgust.
