|Mike McQuery, assistant Penn State football coach and witness to a crime|
For the past week I have been fighting off the urge to write about this whole Penn State sex scandal. I try not to write a negative posting but sometimes I just have to or else the urge just keeps eating away at me.
So here is what I'm going to say about it so I can get this off of my chest.
There are two things that bothered me greatly the past few years (in addition to the regular crap like politics and the Republicans trying to destroy this country - sorry, I had to get that in). Ironically both of these Two Things have one thing in common......football.
The first thing was the Michael Vick Episode and his cruelty to animals. That made me sick to my stomach. I knew there are inhumane people like Michael Vick who walk this earth and I would prefer not to hear about them. Michael Vick was punished (not enough in my book but that's another whole story) and he supposedly has changed his ways. I don't believe it for a second but be that as it may. His story is done and hopefully he will never destroy another animal.
The second thing is this child sex abuse scandal at Penn State. To me as person like Jerry Sandusky is beneath contempt. To take advantage of young people like he was accused of, is the lowest form of human behavior and if he is proven guilty, he should spend the rest of his life behind bars away from children so he can never do them harm again.
But here is what really bothers me. We all know there are animal and child abusers in this world. That is a known fact. That evil in our lives will never change The best we can hope for is that someone will recognize them and their evil acts and stop it and report it to the authorities.
