The Jerry Sandusky Trial

The trial of former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky is in its four day. And already, I have had enough.

This type of trial makes me yearn for the old days when the news cycle wasn’t 24/7. The trial would be held and brief mention of it occurred on the evening TV news or you read about it in the newspaper. Then the verdict was announced and everyone went on with their lives.

But now you can receive a blow-by-blow of the trial. You must display intentional avoidance behavior not to know anything about it.

I have read some testimony about the trial on the Internet. It makes me sick and it makes me angry. If only part of the numerous allegations is true, Sandusky should still be sent to the Big House (prison) for a very, very, very long time.

People are obviously fascinated with this trial, but I not one of them. I think I will try the intentional avoidance behavior mode. I can wait for the verdict.

Sandusky--ugh! If proved guilty, whatever punishment he gets can never equal the life-long trauma his victims will experience.
