Sandusky… Let’s Put This Bastard Behind Bars

So I’m not sure how many of you are aware of it, but at this very moment, Sandusky is free to walk around town, hit the gym, cruise the mall, and do whatever he damn well pleases.

Excuse me?

After being accused of the alleged (I really hate having to use that term still) rape of at least 8 boys, and charged with 40 counts of sexually abusing children, Sandusky was placed on an unsecured $100,000 bail (that means he didn’t have to pay anything, unless he doesn’t show up for court). Oh, but don’t worry, it was only allowed on the condition that he “not go near children.” Whoever believes that this man will comply with that statement is far dumber than I could ever imagine someone to be.

And to top it off, this man has a “clear view of the Lemont Elementary School playground from his back porch.”

I’m sure many of you watched Sandusky’s interview with NBC’s Bob Costas. Like myself, and Jon Stewart, I’m sure you were absolutely horrified by this man’s ability to claim his innocence. But do you know who else probably saw that interview? The family’s of victims, and the victims themselves. Can you imagine how heart-wrenching it must have been for them?

The mother of Victim 1 appeared on Good Morning America for the second time today, and explained how her son broke down into tears while watching Sandusky’s interview. She explained how he feels like he is in prison, afraid to go outside of his house because he believes he could run into Sandusky. When the mother asked Victim 1 was crying, he said, “Because I’m afraid. I’m afraid he’ll go free.”


Penn State students, alumni, faculty, and all readers of Onward State, if you wanted to know how you can help the victims, here you go:

Call the Office of the Attorney General, call Governor Corbett, call someone, and let them know that it is unacceptable that these children feel imprisoned, confined by the boundaries of their home, while Sandusky is allowed to roam free. Let them know that you want that piece of shit behind bars, or, at the very least, under house arrest.

Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General: 717-787-3391; Email: [email protected]

Governor’s Office: 717-787-2500; Email: [email protected]

No man accused of such heinous crimes against humanity deserves the freedom to do and go where he pleases. Here is your chance to make a difference. Here is your chance to help those who need it most. This can not wait. Let’s flood them with 40,000+ messages that the victims, and children, are the FIRST priority.

Jim’s Army & Navy: The Greatest Store Ever

For those of you who have ventured onto the west side of Beaver Avenue, there is a good chance you have passed by Jim’s Army & Navy. If you are one of those people, your first thought when passing by Jim’s was most likely, “What the hell is going on in this store?” When a store’s window display boasts handcuffs (they even come in pink), switchblades, throwing stars, machetes, other swords, and ammunition, you really have no choice but to be utterly confounded. Little did I know that I was about to walk into the greatest store ever.
