Fuck Me Silly....
This may be why I get hourly calls from my scumbag subprime mortgage holder....and why the only car I own from this century has been languishing at the Jaguar shop for six months....while I pound around in a car older than Dylan.
So.....I can't let the whole Joe Paterno thing go without at least a comment.....or two.
People seem to be lining up on both sides of the St. Joe issue: Hey, he reported to his superiors....let the game go on, get over it; and Hey, he never called the cops, fuck him to the wall.
The Penn State students have given their verdict: riots, overturning media trucks, etc.
Nittany Lions are Everything......
If you want to get the straight story about this whole deal.....I suggest you follow (as usual) the European media. Go crazy....actually read the Grand Jury indictments. Notice that the link comes from an English newspaper.
If you read the indictments......you will need Maalox and an aspirin. And possibly an automatic weapon.
The child rapist coach, Jerry Sandusky, involved in all this was known on campus as a pervert going back to 1998, and before. Around that time a temp janitor found him sucking off a ten year old in the coaches' shower. The janitor was a Korean war vet who had managed to get through that lovely experience (disemboweling of friends, body parts flying around, folks freezing to death in rivers of shit....) without too many problems. His encounter with Coach Sandusky's blow job of the 4th grader put him over the edge. He collapsed, nearly had a heart attack and was a sobbing wreck who needed medical intervention.
But, hey....he was a temp, scrubbing showers in the greatest football program in America. Football at Penn State provided the gym, the fields, the year round programs that provided his job...and the jobs of all his co-workers. Still, he obviously reported the incident to his supervisor...who had to call an ambulance (for the temp janitor!).....and his supervisor's supervisor. They all got together to decide what to do.......Basically, shut up for fear of being fired.
See, the coach in question was up to replace Joe Pa as head coach in the multi, multi million dollar operation that is college football in State College, PA. Janitor vs Head Coach? A no brainer.
Still, word got out. Everyone knew. Coach Sandusky lost his chance at being Head Coach, and quietly resigned. With a pension, an office, a parking place, free access to all campus events, keys to all the buildings, etc.
The list of his victims marched on......The most egregious violation was the ass-fucking of a ten year old witnessed by a grad student four years later. The grad student also melted down, and reported the incident to his dad (a friend of Coach Sandusky) and eventually to Coach Paterno, all the while trembling in fear of losing his job and his place in Penn State Football. These gents volleyed the report up through the channels of the administration, but no one ever called the cops.
The indictment lists Victim 1-8 with various levels of nude showering, back rubbing, knee grabbing, dick sucking, etc. The first two kids....including the ten year old that got ass fucked in the shower by a 6'4" adult jock....are not even part of the indictment.....since no one ever bothered to figure out who they were!
Nobody called the cops.....their best effort at justice was to ask Coach Sandusky not to do it anymore. He kept his office on campus, kept his keys to all the buildings on campus, kept his pension, kept his full free access to all campus events, kept his parking pass and parking spot outside the gym with the showers......
Word will be coming out in the next few days that Coach Sandusky pimped out the kids in his care to high dollar donors to his youth ministry.....
For all those that are horrified that a great man like Coach Paterno got fired because of other peoples' actions......
No. Coach Paterno created an organization with so much power and influence....an organization devoted to kids playing a game, let us not forget......that the second most powerful person in the organization's penchant for ass fucking ten year olds was much less important than even ever finding out the name of the ass-fucked ten year old.
Please remember that all this took place at an institute of higher education. Ummph, higher. Ummph, higher.....oh, yeah.
Joe Paterno does not just need to be fired....he needs to be jailed....for creating and supporting a continuing criminal organization.
Before anyone in GPS proximity to me here gets all righteous about those bastards in State College, PA.....we have a similar continuing criminal organization right here in town. Some people call it Carmel High School.
Actually....I can't say that it is still continuing. I have lost contact with the CHS culture some years back...but I don't have high hopes. The same judgements that put institution over child have been going on here for decades, and see no sign of slacking...because no one has ever called them out or acknowledged them. In fact, the best way for a teacher at the High School or Middle School to find themselves out of a job is to go to bat for a student against the powers that be.
I have know three different women who were sexually harassed by the same teacher at CHS in each of three decades. Another freely admits that she had sex with English teacher when she was 14 or 15. And one of our clients married her English teacher directly out of high school thirty years ago. Not a scientific sample by any means...... At least one called the Sheriff, involved authorities....supplied inappropriate voice mail recordings, had her dad confront the guy parked across the street from her house late at night.....
Nothing happened. Zero.
Full disclosure: I was fired by CHS as a soccer coach for......something. So, I am not completely without rancor towards the Carmel Unified School District.
My last year of coaching, my superior....the athletic director....was having a full blown affair with a junior in the school. The affair affected his work, his marriage.....and his ability to do his job as AD. Everyone on campus knew of the affair. When I was not able to get messages through to the guy, I asked my players what to do. They told the girl to have the guy call me. It worked. I complained to the principal about the situation.....He stopped taking my calls.
I was fired as coach. The AD guy was hired as soccer coach.....the GIRL'S soccer coach.
Another coach (married) started an affair with his assistant....a counselor at CHS. Rather than actually coach...they would repair to his truck and fuck themselves silly in full view of the teams they were supposed to be coaching. Windows steamed up, truck a rockin'.....kids a laughin'. The behavior was only stopped when the coach's daughter went to the principal and complained that she was being humiliated. Neither coach (a teacher) nor the counselor were fired or otherwise disciplined.
In the past few days the internet was all abuzz about two teachers who harassed a fat girl in their class, ridiculed her, abused her, forced her to run on a stair climber between classes. The girl's parents wired her up, recorded the abuse and a scandal resulted.
At Carmel Middle some years back there was another abusive teacher. His office was papered over for privacy, and he was famous for having his girl students sit on his lap and bounce on his knee. Not to mention the private meetings in his papered over office. One of my guys was also a student.....a fat kid with attitude who wasn't shy about pointing out these proto-perversions. The teacher constantly abused him for being fat and short. The kid asked me what to do....and I wired him for sound. Sure enough, really terrible verbal abuse resulted. Zephy turned the tape into the school office, expecting.......justice?
No....the principal called in the Sheriff and had him arrested for illegally recording the teacher. He was grilled for two hours by deputies before his mother was even allowed to see or talk to him, much less a lawyer...and he eventually was suspended for a length of time for his violation of the teacher's rights.
He was eleven.
Ooops.....I used his name. You could talk to him about this whole thing....except he is not here anymore. A kind, funny, bright country kid...... died of his various abuses last year at the ripe old age of 24.
The girl who called the Sheriff is still around, as are many of the others. The girl is a toughy....a hard core fighter for what she holds dear and what she believes in. I still detect some damage under the waterline, though. Just because you survive something, doesn't make it right.
And....isn't school supposed to supply a completely different kind of education?
All the Occupy X movements now are a bunch of random folk finally standing up for principles of right and wrong....and it's about time.
I submit that it is difficult and uncomfortable to stand up against social and economic wrongs at the hands of the powers that be.....and much, much more difficult to stand up against sexual and physical abuse at the hands of the powers that be.
Banks are one thing....they are supposed to be cocksuckers.
Once the power and supposed value of an organization....especially a educational organization...completely overcomes the value of the lives and the well-being...and even physical safety....of those it was created to serve.....it is time for a restart.
All Penn State's officials and coaches should be fired and jailed. The program itself should be banned for some years....and start over in Division III or IV, with no scholarships, no TV, no Bowls, no perks.....
As for Carmel High.....the principal involved in almost all these terrible decisions I named above.....just ran for school board. And many of the same board members, and many of the same teachers......who were all complicit..... are still there. I hold out zero hope for any change in that environment. I am just grateful that my own kids are gone.....and that they were boys. Not that that was any help to the Penn State kids.
As for the Cachagua kids for whom I still feel responsibility.....especially the girls....especially the jocks who are girls.....I just shake my head.
And walk away.
