Just perusing the headlines before getting ready for bed, and I see a headline on MSNBC that states “Analysis: Faltering Defense Hurt Jerry Sandusky”. I really hate how trials and law are something of a “game” in this country, in terms of how the media reports on things. I really hate analysis like this that scrutinizes every intricate detail of our screwed up legal system. Frankly, I don’t give a damn about the intricacies of U.S. law, about the brilliance or ineptitude of lawyers, or endless debate about how a legal case plays out.
And I SURE as hell don’t care about a “faltering defense hurting” Jerry Sandusky. WHO…CARES. First of all, who cares if ANYTHING “hurt” Jerry Sandusky. I’m against the death penalty…but, with that said…I can certainly sympathize with that one father in Texas who beat and killed a man who was sexually attacking his young daughter. Can’t imagine what I myself would do in that situation, if I came across someone hurting my son like that. I certainly can sympathize with all the families hurt by Sandusky’s absolutely disgusting, evil behavior.
So I’m sorry, MSNBC, I don’t care to read about the legal intricacies of the case, I don’t care to read about how Sandusky’s defense team let him down. The man is scum, not even capable of defending his own behavior by testifying on his own behalf. The only thing that “hurt” Jerry Sandusky is his own warped and twisted inner demons.
Rot in hell, Sandusky. I for one am GLAD your defense “failed” you. WHO CARES about the damn legal case. The story isn’t about how well or how badly the lawyers performed. The story is about one sick SOB about to be brought to justice, and about the families who will never heal after what Sandusky did to them.
