I was out with a friend last night. He's a cop and did undercover narcotics for a long time and has interrogated a large number of people. That was the first thing he said to me when the subject came up, that as soon as Sandusky repeated the question he figured he was lying.
On the plus side of all this, there has been a surge in abuse victims (I guess "alleged victims"
) coming forward in completely unrelated incidents
. The fact that there have been consequences in this case, unlike many of the Church cases, has encouraged and emboldened victims.
A few somewhat related ones are pretty damning too:
A Phoenix, Ariz., man told a Capitol press conference today that he was abused by a Penn State professor and two other men while he was a child, from 1977 through 1981. The incidents occurred in four states, including Pennsylvania.
Paul McLaughlin said that 20 years later, as part of his recovery, he reported the alleged abuse to university officials but they declined to investigate his charges. McLaughlin said he was unable to pursue any other legal avenues because the statute of limitations on the alleged crimes had expired.
