    So glad it is now over, and he will surely get life without parole. The 10 and 11 year olds are now at least safe form one monster.

    Burn him at the stake.

    Not just any monster, but a self proclaimed “tickle monster”

    Jerry, it’s due time your corn holing activities came full circle. You’re a dead man. Good luck and may you rot in hell.

    FINALLY!

  7. wvucolumbus says: Jun 22, 2012 10:36 PM

    Time to say a prayer for these young men and truly hope for healing in their lives. No reason to celebrate anything…….just happiness that this is can now go away.

    Save us all the money and fry him

  9. Revolution22 says: Jun 22, 2012 10:41 PM

    He laughed in one kids face when told the kid would go to the cops. Now, America laughs in HIS. For this man, they should put him in population. Hardcore prisoners even have a code of conduct. They don’t put up with child molesters. He wouldn’t last 6 months if they did put him in pop.

  10. kingdavid56 says: Jun 22, 2012 10:41 PM

    Fry this jackass

  11. rexbeatsoff2feet says: Jun 22, 2012 10:42 PM

    Bye

  12. stevenfbrackett says: Jun 22, 2012 10:43 PM

    Now let’s go get all the ones who protected and aided him – those still living anyway!

  13. raysfan1 says: Jun 22, 2012 10:44 PM

    If I could give wvucolumbus’ comment 100 thumbs up I would.

  14. ogre2010 says: Jun 22, 2012 10:45 PM

    Mr Hibbert is going to jail

  15. prince5000 says: Jun 22, 2012 10:51 PM

    stevenfbrackett. amen. Penn state and all those including paterno should be remembered for protecting this scumbag.

  16. Gordon says: Jun 22, 2012 10:54 PM

    Hopefully he saves taxpayer money and just offs himself.

  17. bouwel92 says: Jun 22, 2012 10:57 PM

    Now that he has been found guilty before he goes to hell I wish that all the prison inmates would do to him what he did to those innocent, defenseless kids. May you burn in hell you worthless pos excuse for a human being.

  18. phreakin says: Jun 22, 2012 11:03 PM

    Sadly he’ll probably take the cowards way out and kill himself before he can get what’s coming to him in prison. Child molesters should receive the death penalty. ESPECIALLY serial and predatory molesters like Sandusky

  19. showerswithsandusky says: Jun 22, 2012 11:08 PM

    Witch Hunt. Sandusky is ill. Not guilty. The REAL guilty one is Paterno. Enabler he was. Enjoy the fire Joe. Tear that statue down. He is no winner. Satan is coaching joe now.

  20. Revolution22 says: Jun 22, 2012 11:11 PM

    ^Dahmer was “ill” too technically. Doesn’t mean he shouldn’t pay, and pay DEARLY for his crime. He did. He’s been judged. Sandusky’s turn.

  21. showerswithsandusky says: Jun 22, 2012 11:18 PM

    Sandusky found guilty for one reason…to save face for Joe and his record. In the fire gushing pits of hell “Coach Joe” meets John Holmes and Long Dong Silver. Take it like a champ coach! Play like a Champion Today 4eyes! Sandusky needs the help of a mental health professional. Not jail. Praying for you Jerry. Get well. It’s not your fault that you’re an unhealthy man. where was Franco and Lavar when they were needed most.

    Justice served. But, this is just the beginning PSU. Proof of the cover-up is yet to come. Credit to the jurors for ignoring the defense’s request to “blame” the prosecution for the fact that the monster that is Sandusky brought down so many of those involved in the cover-up, including Paterno. But most importantly, glad to see that the smile Sandusky wore on his face during the prosecution’s closing statement has now been permanently wiped away from his sadistic and sociopathic face.

  23. rickrock6661982 says: Jun 22, 2012 11:26 PM

    Paterno should be next

    Oh wait..he’s dead

    Firing him just “killed” him

  24. showerswithsandusky says: Jun 22, 2012 11:29 PM

    showerswithsandusky signing off! You people make me ill. Joining Westboro Church. They understand ME! Good bye! (and somebody buy Sue some decent dentures…the dental insurance at PSU must suck!) ..,it’s been fun.

  25. Deb says: Jun 22, 2012 11:30 PM

    Thank God for a just verdict, but it’s sad that so many more than we’ll ever know about will continue to suffer from the trauma this maniac has inflicted. I just pray they get the assistance they need to move beyond these horrors.

    This situation is not going away; the investigations into Penn State and Second Mile continue. Jerry Sandusky was able to abuse these children for so long because he was enabled by people in positions of authority and responsibility. Their day of reckoning is still to come.

  26. drewsylvania says: Jun 22, 2012 11:30 PM

    He’ll be on the receiving end daily in prison. Payback’s a bitch.

  27. rickrock6661982 says: Jun 22, 2012 11:31 PM

    Who know how many kids wouldn’t have been raped had Paterno not cared about himself and his own legacy?

  28. sabatimus says: Jun 22, 2012 11:36 PM

    It’s too bad PA doesn’t apparently have a death penalty…

  29. whodatsucker says: Jun 23, 2012 12:02 AM

    Sandusky you are a f*****g creep. I hope they take your ass in prison.

  30. whodatsucker says: Jun 23, 2012 12:05 AM

    Sandusky you are a creep. I hope they take your ass in the shower in prison.

  31. rsmeans says: Jun 23, 2012 1:51 AM

    I had always admired PSU football and Joe Paterno. No more. It is time that PSU football program be given the death penalty and Joe Paterno barred from ever being inducted into the College football Hall or fame or any of his records formally recognized.

  32. captaincanuck84 says: Jun 23, 2012 2:13 AM

    Hope they dont allow him to go into protective custody and make him face the music in the yard and shower…may this man burn in hell and endure a lot of suffering while in prison.

  33. thegonz13 says: Jun 23, 2012 8:51 AM

    Finally, the victims can get closure and try to put their lives back together. Here’s to hoping they will get the help they need to lead healthy lives.

    Our thoughts should be with them. I know mine are.

  34. orthomarine says: Jun 23, 2012 9:33 AM

    Too bad that coward Paterno died…. He should be joining him in bubbas boom boom room

  35. ningenito78 says: Jun 23, 2012 10:48 AM

    Actually maybe lilb360 was in jail for 3 hrs one time when he got a DWI so he could sober up. Can’t overlook that possibility.

  36. onceuponatimeinsports says: Jun 23, 2012 1:10 PM

    This is far from over PSU fans. Get ready to have your school dragged thru the mud in the Curley and Schultz trials, not to mention that Spanier will probably be indicted soon himself.

    And once those trials are over the victims will begin to sue Penn St itself for not protecting them thru the actions or inactions of it’s faculty and staff.

    This is going to get much uglier before it gets better PSU supporters…..much…MUCH uglier!!

  37. dkhhuey says: Jun 24, 2012 12:08 AM

    Enjoy your new set of friends you POS!!! I’m guessing it will really sink in the first time you get a very good introduction to what it feels like to get anally raped in the shower. Enjoy it Jer – you’re f@#$ing earned it.
