How else can you recognize the characteristics of a sociopath if you don't study them?

About the victims, many of them feel ashamed what happened; therefore, they do not want to attract attention to themselves. Elizabeth Smart, a victim of abduction and sexual assault, is a rare person who has become an activist for victim rights.

Some would say that the only reason anyone knows who Elizabeth Smart is because she's a young white girl, and the media has a nasty tendency to focus on young white girls when they go missing.

Pretty sure we hate him because of what he did to the victims, not because he's a celebrity.

Nevermind, I give up. Saywut

Well, the implication I think you're going for is that people are after Sandusky only because they're not Penn State Fans or something, or that we're going after him because he's a celebrity.

Well, I could care less about Penn State--for or against. I hold them and their football in the same regard as I do...Walter Mitty College in East Dakota. Or something. I simply do not care.

Sure, the case is brought to light because he's a pretty minor celebrity, and without him being involved in what he was involved in because of Penn State we probably wouldn't have heard of him. And I can honestly say, that until this case the only person's name I ever heard associated with Penn State was Joe Paterno and before this case I didn't even know what HE looked or sounded like. So complete was my "not caring" about anything Penn State.

But, his minor celebrity status due to the obsession central PA has with Penn State ALSO allowed him access to all the boys he molested, hence the coverage by the media about an organization that much of the state is ALREADY obsessed with pre-Sadnsusky.

Point being, if you're part of an organization that people are obsessed with, and that association is what allowed you access to the kids you diddled you're going to get as much coverage as the organization would get for anything...which is what happened.

The guy a couple towns over from here who diddled his 8 year old daughters friends during sleepovers? No, he's not going to the coverage that Sandusky got, but that guy (to my knowledge) did not diddle the kids in the locker rooms of a multi-million dollar football enterprise while representing the charity that he started due to his involvement with the multi-million dollar football enterprise, and an attempt to cover up the scandal was not enacted by others involved in the multi-million dollar football enterprise.

What do you mean dangerous precedent? All US Government pensions are subject to revocation for felony convictions. In fact, when I a cop, I made it a point to make sure retired military personnel that were convicted of felonies got their pensions revoked. I sent certified copies of the court documents sent to the Pentagon so they could have their pensions pulled. Fuck those assholes who did what they did and finally got caught!
