Bob Costas asked Jerry Sandusky if he ever touched the genitals of any boy. As Sandusky replied that he didn’t, his voice quality sounded shaky and tentative.
Then Costas said if this is not so, then you must be the unluckiest man and most persecuted man we have ever heard of.
Jerry pauses for several seconds and then chuckles. This reaction is contrary to anyone who was not guilty. An innocent person would immediately jump in with no pause time ans say YES, I AM, using a very formidable and unwavering tone.
Costas then says it again and Sandusky pasues for five seconds and chuckles a nervous laugh and immediately releases a burst of air. Needless to say this question has taken literally taken the wind or the air out of him as you literally hear it in the audio.
Then Sandusky says in a weak tone, “ I don’t know what you want me to say WHAT????? Want you to say???? This is a signal of guilt. He is now depending on what others want him to say and does not relay what he needs to say. In essence he nothing to say except that he is guilty.
You can believe that his attorney is helping him to spin what to say. Also why is this man doing interviews if he has an attorney? Is he defying his attorney? Is he defying his attorney? What kind of attorney wiuld allow his client to speak out at this point?
Sandusky’s voice quality and speech behaviors alone are incriminating him in my view.
Then he says I don’t think theses have been the best days of my life as he burst out air . This air burst indicates that he is having a hard time coordinating his breathing with his talking which is a HUGE indicator of nervousness and deception. His statement also minimizes the serious of what is happening to him which indicates that he is in the initial shock phases and in a state of denial.
Costas then asks him a great question. Costas asks how would you define the part you played? What are you willing to concede that was wrong and and you wish you hadn’t done it?
Sandusky once again takes a gulp of audible air indicating that this question has once agin knocked the wind out fo him. He then practically wispers and mumbles his answer , which is an indicator guilt and shame . He says I I should have (long pause) showered with those kids. The telling part here vocally speaking is that he goes up at the end of the sentence on the words kids as though he was asking a question. The empahasis on the world kids means that deep down he really didn’t think it was wrong to shower with those kids. It’s only wong because he got busted.Also the hesitation is a signal of extreme distress.
Then he mumbles a guilty sounding you know so . In essence , he is trying to minimize his actions and seeking reassurance with the words you know . He ends his statement on the word so because he has nothing else to say .
Here is the give away “tell” or signal that says it all. Costas asks him if he is a pedophile. Sandusky immediately replies No! Then Costs rephrases the question ands says Are you sexually attracted to young boys? Just so you are aware, this is how sociopaths often respond to questions. You may ask them a direct question and get a completely different answer than when you rephrase the question. Sandusky also parrots the question and repeats Am I sexually attracted to young boys?
When someone answers a question with a question or repeats your question, they are usually GUILTY!!! That is one of the biggest tells of deception.
Then Sandusky further inceiminates himself verbally by contimuing on and saying sexually attracted. I I enjoy young people.’
His repetion of the words sexually attracted thrown out there without a pronoun or a verb speaks volumes, Singling these two words out as a phrase in itself ndicates that he very well may be sexually attracted to them.
Then he says I I love to be around them . But no I’m not sexually attracted to young boys. He dies off at the end of his statement which is very significant in my view. As he in essence is swallowing his words and swallowing the truth. Note how he calls young boys them . It illustrates how he has objectified his victims.
Jerry Sandusky shows us that no matter who a person is or what their position is, it in possible to find pedophiles in any walk of life and in any socioeconomic group or social strata. Even pillars of society who do charity work can be sexual deviants. We need to stop playing The Emperor Has New Clothes when he in fact is not wearing any. We need to see what is, not what we want to see. As soon as we see this behavior we need to make sure the person is held accountable for their actions.
There is no question in my mind that he is acting like a person who has a lot of guilt , shame, and embarrassment at being exposed and who most likely is guilty.
After reading the Grand Jury transcript I felt like throwing up. This is an extremely deviant and sick man. True they are just allegations and he has not yet been found guilty by a court of law at this time. But in reading these allegations , it appears that they all have a pattern to them that is both shocking and sickening. He is either wrestling, showering, or cracking some young boy’s back. Like most predators he has followed a similar ritual in abusing his victims.
There is no rehabilitation for a pedophile because they are imprinted with this sexual perversion forever.He needs to be locked up forever with no possibility of parole. He has essentially murdered the souls and the psyches of these young boys, many who have now grown into young men.
All the millions of dollars he has earned during his coaching years needs to go for psychological treatment for these boys because after he got his hands on them, they were never the same. What makes matters even worse is that he took full advantage of young boys who were troubled and/or disadvantaged. That makes his crime even more egregious.
I say lock him up and throw away the key and make him do some hard labor in prison instead of his sitting around doing nothing on the taxpayers money. I say get as much use out of him, whether it be making license plates or some other item that is made in prisons.
He needs to be released into the general population so he can see what it feels like to be helpless and victimized. No doubt if this is the case, he will not survive long which may actually be a blessing to all.
