Painful Words Come From First Sandusky Accuser To Take the Stand

“Victim number 4” took the stand this morning and began telling his story to the jury in the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse trial.

The (alleged) victim told a packed courtroom how he was groomed into the on-going molestation through playfulness with Sandusky at Penn State events and Second Mile parties.

“In private I felt like Jerry Sandusky’s girlfriend. In public, I felt like he was my father.”

Do people realize how confusing that is for a child? Do these child rapists understand how psychologically damaging that is?

    Regarding this question…”Do these child rapists understand how psychologically damaging that is?”, actually, I don’t know the answer, but I definetly know that either way…they do not give a f..k on what kids feel or think. And that’s the BIG problem.

    The child was not the only one who was “groomed” in this case.

    Jerry Sandusky was embraced, petted, and rewarded for his lies and denials of his sexual abuse of children by his peers and others. This type of “grooming of the perp” is common and socially acceptable in our society especially with media celebs.

    Jerry’s victims are still in danger of being “punished” by Penn State fans who wanted them to shut up and make them out to be the “nasty boys” who ruined Penn State in my opinion. They still think that the victims put themselves in dangerous situations with celebrities for financial gain and that it will be validated and proven in court by defense attorneys.

    Fans are experts at “grooming” their celebs.

      So true Little Nel.

      And the Penn State authorities, who, after hearing of what he did to a boy in the shower, told Sandusky, “don’t shower with the boys anymore,” also embraced, petted, and rewarded him.

    Interesting that he felt like a “girlfriend” and not a “boyfriend” when he was with his molester.

      “Interesting that he felt like a “girlfriend” and not a “boyfriend” when he was with his molester.”

      But understandable. Sandusky was the dominate, leading male. The children were also just coming of age and their sexual development was so vulnerable.

      • little nel says:

        Could it be possible that the victim was feeling like a “girlfriend” because he perceived that dominate, leading male, Jerry Sandusky was treating him like a man would act towards a female love interest?

        I know that I could sense “lust” from an adult when I was a child by the look in their eyes and/or touching that made me uncomfortable.

          Yes, that is what I meant when I called him the leading dominate male.
