Just saw an article where Sandusky explains his behavior. The crafting of his words sounds like laying a foundation for his lawyers to say he didn’t know any better or something. At one point he says: “In my mind there wasn’t inappropriate behavior.” This was in reference to the what the assistant saw in the showers. My alert went up over the usage of the phrase, “in my mind”. It’s like saying that maybe it was wrong but in his mind it wasn’t inappropriate. It’s not a flat out denial is it? I just find the wording curious.
Then there was this gem when he was asked if he was attracted to young boys. He says:
“I was sitting there like, ‘what in the world is this question?’ am I going to be, if I say, ‘no I’m not attracted to boys,’ that’s not the truth because I’m attracted to young people — boys, girls,” he said.
The article says he goes on to “clarify” that statement. His “clarification was ridiculous. Who says the above statement? What the hell does that even mean!? What person upon being asked such a question and being accused of the heinous crimes he’s accused of, would choose to answer that question like that? In those words?
I just had to write about it. I don’t know about you guys but I can’t talk to anyone about all of these cases. No one understands, and the people I know, even my husband, don’t want to talk about it because it makes them uncomfortable. Gee, must be rough to be uncomfortable…
