Jerry Sandusky: ‘It’s a sad day!’


On Nov. 4, reports surfaced that Jerry Sandusky, who for three decades was a trusted assistant on Joe Paterno‘s Penn State coaching staff, was indicted on 40 counts relating to the sexual molestation of at least seven young boys.  Five days later, Paterno’s 60-plus coaching career with the Nittany Lions was over, dismissed by the school’s board of trustees as criticism rained down on the university over its handling of the scandal.

Now, on the day of Paterno’s death and as he awaits trial on what’s now more than 50 charges, the alleged pedophile has decided to chime in on the sad development.

In a statement released through his attorney, Sandusky praised his former boss for “maintain[ing] a high standard” and “practic[ing] what he preached.”  Of course, there was nary a mention of how his alleged abhorrent behavior was the overriding factor in Paterno’s demise as a football coach.

Anyway, here’s the statement.  Do with it as you wish:

“This is a sad day! Our family, Dottie and I would like to convey our deepest sympathy to Sue and her family. Nobody will be able to take away the memories we all shared of a great man, his family, and all the wonderful people who were a part of his life.

“He maintained a high standard in a very difficult profession. Joe preached toughness, hard work and clean competition. Most importantly, he had the courage to practice what he preached.”

    Haven’t you done a enough harm already? Nobody cares of what you think or how you feel!! You destroyed a lot of people and we are looking forward to your day in court

    And soon, it will be a sad 30 years in the slam for you. You single handily tarnished this mans career.

    Sandscumly, Hell is coming to breakfast soon for you, and well deserved.

    Who asked you, bozo? It’s mostly your fault Paterno ended up in hot water!

    Sandusky is sad because his accomplice passed away. He will have to find new partners to aid him and keep his “affairs” with young kids a secret. By the NUMEROUS comments defending Sandusky and Pervterno, it appears he has already found two in TxGrown and Blueblaze.


    The morally empty, classless students and defenders of the sickos are crying and lashing out in such agony over a man they never met. a man that helped another sicko victimize children, yet they have shed not one ounce of compassion, sympathy, or acknowledgement over the victims.

    This POS should be charged for killing Paterno too.

    Shut the f**k up you ass slamming pedophile. How can you not take your own life after the world knows what you have done? (no trial needed). Go away and spare your family further embarrassment. You will be buried at the crossroads.

    Who gives a shit what you think puke? Know what Hell is? Repetition of your sins. Here’s to the barbed tail demon poking your ass for eternity Sandusky. Then we can say,”It’s a great day!”

  8. inconsonance says: Jan 22, 2012 3:41 PM

    A known pedophile that is reviled by anyone with even a passing familiarity with the story is capable of more sympathy for a man’s passing than most of the commenters here. That’s very telling.

  9. rythmicslapping4jopa says: Jan 22, 2012 3:48 PM

    Sandusky could have been stopped but JoPa did nothing but look the other way and count his money.

    I have no problem with Westboro protesting his funeral if their message will stop shit like this from happening again.

    They ought to close down Penn State. Its a pervert factory.

    Oh those poor young boys.

  10. pervyharvin says: Jan 22, 2012 3:53 PM

    @ rythmicslapping4jopa,,,,what a sick username. I love it.

  11. thefiesty1 says: Jan 22, 2012 3:58 PM

    Somebody needs to shut off all communication with this jerk, including his dumb ass attorney. Nothing more needs to be heard from them until he is found guilty in court.

  12. overratedgators says: Jan 22, 2012 4:00 PM

    Sandusky closed his comments by asking: “Anyone know how I can give all the OTHER potential witnesses terminal cancer too?”

    That picture makes me want to throw up in my mouth.

  14. dirtyharry1971 says: Jan 22, 2012 4:21 PM

    it figures jopa would die before he had to answer for his sins too. ive said it before and i will say it again, they should at the very least close the football program but its very clear the administrators of this school dont care about what happened here and neither do the alumi

    Slamn’ Slappy Sandy sez, “Nobody watched my back or made me more money than you Joey. Too bad you checked out before the civil lawsuits could tap your millions. RIH.”

  17. Deb says: Jan 22, 2012 4:34 PM

    inconsonance …

    You’re taking Sandusky’s statement at face value and assuming its sole purpose was to convey genuine sympathy? Really?

    If Sandusky had any genuine feeling for the Paternos, he’d have allowed the family to mourn in peace without again reminding the world of his crimes and his link to the former coach. His statement was completely selfish and self-serving. The only thing telling here is your bizarre naivete.

  18. Deb says: Jan 22, 2012 4:42 PM

    @”rythmic”dude …

    Yeah, that Westboro bunch are going to stop pedophilia by picketing Paterno’s funeral … just like they’ve “cured” homosexuality by picketing the funerals of American soldiers. :roll:

  19. Deb says: Jan 22, 2012 5:01 PM

    Wow … a lot of support for the Westboro nuts here. Scary to think what frequents these sites.

  20. dominator71030 says: Jan 22, 2012 5:35 PM


    Your username fits you. You must have not read my comments of how the penn state students and alumni donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to help child abuse and held a candlelight vigil for the victims. You (and many others) act like Paterno participated in it when he didn’t even WITNESS it.


    What do you mean by counted his money? I dont think he got any money from the rape Sandusky did. Joe Pa has donated millions upon millions upon millions to Penn State since 1965 and other charities. How much do you donate to charities?


    The players and recruits at or coming to Penn State did nothing wrong so why punish them and shut down the football program? They should close the whole college since one or two people also covered it up. BUT that is not reasonable or fair to the people who work or go to school there. That’s the stupidest thing I ever heard.

  21. lemmam says: Jan 22, 2012 5:42 PM

    hey jerry s t f u . we’ll here from you when you’re convicted, you sick m -f , b

  22. lovesmesomeme says: Jan 22, 2012 5:43 PM

    Eff him and eff paterno, there is a special place in hell for both of them. JoePa comes in a close second for scumbags who let pedo’s get away with it. That ra-ra crap he performed in his front yard the night he was canned was disgusting.

  23. showerswithsandusky says: Jan 22, 2012 5:53 PM

    Paterno could have shut Uncle Jerry down but he turned his back and minimized the situation to protect his buddy and university.

    Penn State should get the death penalty in all sports.

  24. inconsonance says: Jan 22, 2012 6:57 PM

    Oh, Deb. If I took a shot every time you posted something that makes you look like even more of a mongoloid ditch pig, my name would be on the waiting list for a new liver in at least six different places. Having no reason to believe that you’ll stop posting the textual equivalent of brain damage, I’d get the paperwork in order so that I could get another one every couple months.

    What you’re too dense to realize is that never did I state that his sympathy was legitimate. My sole point was that the sick fuck’s statement, regardless his intent, was more sympathetic toward the deceased and his loved ones than 99% of the waterheads here have been. That’s not “bizarre naivete,” you silly bitch. That’s what someone with two functional brain cells would call “an observation.” I highly advise that you stop attempting to find something to get all menstrual about in every post you read because you’re obviously incapable of making reasonable inferences.

    pedophilia is the new fad

  26. centexhorn says: Jan 22, 2012 7:24 PM

    Sandusky thinks he’s this celebrity now that he’s getting so much attention. Freaking psychopath, no one cares about your opinion. Go sit in jail for the rest of your life.

  27. Deb says: Jan 22, 2012 8:26 PM

    inconsonance …

    The intent of his statement was self-serving, so the content is irrelevant. It’s easy to express sympathy when the goal is trying to make yourself look better. But I didn’t realize you were so fragile that pointing out the obvious absurdity of your comment would send you over the edge into raving misogyny and blithering idiocy. Then again … I expect it’s a short walk.

  28. bigred12 says: Jan 22, 2012 11:21 PM

    anyone else think that’s a very strange use of an exclamation point?

  29. mcjon22 says: Jan 22, 2012 11:27 PM

    Pfft, this bastard…

  30. deadeye says: Jan 23, 2012 12:56 AM

    Every single day you raped a child was a sad day Sandusky!

    You were the root cause of so many agonizing problems in so many innocent lives. It’s simply impossible for there to be justice given the scope of your crimes.

  31. 00maltliquor says: Jan 23, 2012 2:01 AM

    Sandouchsky should be the last mother effer speaking on Paterno’s death! Joe was a very highly respected and admired man his whole life and because of Jerry, singlehandedly brought this man down and he died during the only 2 months he was hated in his life.

  32. dkhhuey says: Jan 23, 2012 9:27 AM

    The man is either delusional – not understanding that he was the reason this scandal occurred – or a complete sociopath that is using Joe Pa’s death as an opportunity to paint himself as less than a monster. Either way, I think the entire planet would rather you just STFU and hurl yourself on the sharpest rusty object in your house.

  33. steveoz49 says: Jan 23, 2012 10:06 AM

    Hey Jerry… rot in hell

  34. cubano76 says: Jan 23, 2012 11:00 AM

    FU Sandusky!

  35. bozosforall says: Jan 23, 2012 11:02 AM

    Jerkwad Slime-douchy just needs to do the rest of the world a favor and off himself.

  36. cleareye1 says: Jan 24, 2012 4:51 PM

    The Westboro creeps have a lot in common with child molesters. They are equally despised.

    Anyone claiming they would have done everything right in the situation Paterno faced is full of it.

    Sandusky should be brought to court soon so the facts can speak for themselves. It is disgusting the way people claim they know he is guilty already, before a trial even. False claims against people are made all the time. Hear the facts, then judge.
