Sandusky’s Outrageous Sentence

Sandusky was sentenced today.

One of our most popular posts was the one where I asked “How many centuries will Sandusky’s prison sentence be?” I was thinking at least two. After the prosecutor and some victims gave impact statements, Sandusky gave his own speech. He claimed he was the victim and remained in total denial. Pathetic.

The judge, who could have given Sandusky anywhere from 10 to 220 years, chose to give him 30 to 60 years for the 45 guilty verdicts he received. That means eight months per conviction. Sandusky could get out when he’s 98 years old.

Now I know that sounds like a death sentence. However, the judge is sending the wrong message. He should have given Sandusky a sentence appropriate for the crimes he committed. Eight months for all the crap that guy did is a pittance.

The possibility Sandusky could get out, even if he’s 98, is another slap in the face to the victims. 200 years would have been appropriate. We heard on ESPN one dude in Alabama got 600 years for being a child molester.

Sandusky joins O.J. Simpson and Casey Anthony as the most hated non-politicians in America.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
