Why do most people, and most mental health experts, assume this woman was merely “in denial” and “didn’t want to see” what was going on with her husband and little boys?
Is it because she looks like a cookies and milk grandmother? Because she dresses nicely? Has an education? A nice smile?
Jerry Sandusky has been convicted of 47 counts of sexually abusing boys, including oral and anal rape. The crimes were committed over a span of many years, with several assaults having taken place in the Sandusky home, and sometimes, when Dottie was in the house.
One victim says he screamed to Dottie for help when he was being raped. He was so adamant about Dottie’s lack of help, that he feels the basement “must have been soundproof.” I believe he is saying that there is no way in hell she could not have heard him.
Dottie denies hearing any screams.
Dottie Sandusky proclaims she never suspected any sexual abuse by her husband, of anyone, at any time.
Dottie Sandusky completely supports her husband and has called his victims liars and manipulators.
What woman so vehemently denies all the damning evidence, eye-witness accounts, and convictions? A woman who is hiding something about herself?
Presuming that Dottie Sandusky is not a pedophile herself, who enjoyed listening in on the suffering of rape victims (something that would require extensive investigation of Mrs. Sandusky, criminally and psychologically), then she lived with a serial rapist and never consciously suspected him of wrongdoing.
How can that be?– Dr. Keith Ablow
Why on earth, in the times we live, would anyone deny the very real possibility that little miss smiling Dottie could very well be a woman who willingly allowed her husband to sexually abuse boys because both she and Jerry enjoyed it?
“Dr. Ablow suggests that one possibility is pathological denial, due to her own childhood sexual abuse. He says these kind of women “instinctively bury” their heads because that is what they have always done.
Indeed, people victimized or traumatized in childhood often recreate and attempt to triumph over the earliest chapters of their life stories by selecting spouses who are just as dangerous–full of potential violence-but who don’t express it toward them (but may well toward others).
Male predators are on the lookout for these psychologically blind, deaf and dumb women, because they offer camouflage from being seen as deviant. Who better to marry to perpetrate a fiction than someone who has always gravitated toward fiction as an antidote to harsh realities.
Of course, there is another possibility: There are people in the world who have horrifically violent and abusive fantasies, but may swear to themselves and others that they do not. Such individuals may “recruit” destructive people into their lives, in order to vicariously enjoy their aggression. In this way, they are assailants “by proxy.” –Fox News
Wake up America, Dottie Sandusky could be a deviant child sex criminal. No human being is above such degeneracy. Not grandmothers, not beloved entertainers, not senators, and if you read Cathy O’brien’s books…not even United States presidents and their wives.
