I just realized something. I have not read the grand jury report, but I understand that there were at least two grown men who walked by the showers, on two separate occasions, and both witnessed (allegedly) Sandusky orally raping, or sodomizing a child.
Violence in the form of self-defense is morally acceptable, as is the defense of another person, especially a child. Not only did these two witnesses do nothing to have Sandusky arrested and removed from society, but neither of them physically defended the children. A man cannot just walk by and go make a call, or report the acts the next day. He also has to physically defend the child in that moment.
As a woman, I probably would not be able to overpower Sandusky, and would have to get help, but these were two grown men who saw the (alleged) oral rape and sodomy.
And someone else made a great point today on the Anderson Cooper show: The boys probably thought in that moment, “It’s over, someone just saw this happening. This will finally stop.” But when nothing was done, the boys were betrayed a second time.
