Penn State to remodel football shower and locker room where Jerry Sandusky abused boys
Lehigh Valley Live ^ | July 13 2012

Posted on 07/13/2012 5:52:21 PM PDT by hole_n_one

Penn State plans to renovate the building where Jerry Sandusky sexually molested boys.

University spokesman David La Torre said today that Penn State plans to remodel the football shower and locker room area as a direct result of Sandusky’s crimes. The former defensive coordinator was convicted of assaulting some of his victims in the team shower.

La Torre said renovation plans to the Lasch Football Building were drawn up shortly after Sandusky’s arrest in November.

------BREAK------

Reminders of the Sandusky child sex abuse scandal — and the senior school officials accused of covering it up — are all over Penn State’s campus and State College. School officials say they are still weighing how to deal with the other imagery associated with the scandal.

A statue outside Beaver Stadium served as a focal point for mourners of late coach Joe Paterno, but it has turned into a target for critics angered by former FBI director Louis Freeh’s findings that Paterno and other university administrators concealed allegations against Sandusky in 1998 and 2001 to avoid bad publicity.

--------BREAK--------

“You go to a Penn State football game and there’s 100,000 people down there and they got that statute and you know doggone well they’ll start talking about Sandusky,” Bowden told The Associated Press. “If it was me, I wouldn’t want to have it brought up every time I walked out on the field.”

Lots of little one-boy-wide niches in the walls? Each with a little "Safe Child Zone" plaque mounted next to it? In English, Spanish, and Braille?

Maybe there could just be a rainbow with a superimposed red-circle-with-diagonal slash symbol on each plaque.

Given PSU’s unabashed support for the agenda that demands unrestricted access to young boys, I can predict the renovations include:

* Sauna, hottub and bathhouse;

* Lockable shower stalls, for that sense of intimate privacy;

* A commemorative plaque on the door of the stall Sandusky used.

But they are keeping Jerry’s favorite stall and encasing it in glass as a shrine. A nice plaque with his picture will be next to it along with his motto, “Beware all ye who enter here.”

How about teaching big, strapping asst coaches to rescue boys who are being raped by predators in showers?

How about returning to a day when such a physical rescue would have been automatic, and the perp beaten to a pulp, no matter who the hell he was?

It is curious that a defensive coordinator of a football program from a major Div 1 university that was universally thought of within the college football community as highly capable and competent would not be actively and enthusiastically sought after by other programs.

He was basically shunned once his tenure at Penn State ended.

Which begs the question.......

What did those outside of Happy Valley know about Sandusky?

If the NCAA does what it should do and gives Pedophile State’s football program the death penalty they should have about 5 years to complete the remodel.

Oh yeah, it WAS the shower stalls that caused the rapes.

What disgusting idiots came up with THAT excuse? IT WAS NOT THE SHOWER STALLS. IT was the perverts and the creeps who covered for them.

It was the damn school elites looking the other way. That's what caused the rapes to continue.

NOT the shower stalls.

Fire these people - keep them and their ideas away from our children.

Typical liberal reaction. Blame guns, blame SUVs, now blame showers.

Yes, the shower design FORCED Standusky to rape young men. Yeah, sure.

IT’S NOT THE SHOWER DESIGN, YOU ASSHOLES.

They knew all along Sandusky was a sick demented evil freak. They just looked the other way.

DON’T BLAME THE SHOWERS.

Why punish thousands of people for the actions of a handful? You won’t be hurting anyone that was involved, since they have either died or been fired,removed, or arrested. What good is it to punish the local bar owner or the ticket collector at the stadium or the hot dog vendor?

scoutmaster - I don’t feel Louis Freeh is perfect - but I trust the process of his judgement. Many times in life we aren’t given a choice between ‘good and bad’ but between ‘horrible’ and a little bit more horrible. In spots like that you have to trust the basis of a person’s thinking process - I trust Louis Freeh’s. Are all his choice ‘right’? No. The last perfect person to live on this earth could walk on water. But is he a good man? Yes. So, we’ll disagree on this one... happens.
