And now my summation.
As we argue about whether the -- -- coast coach in American college football history should have done more.
Or how -- 28 year old grad assistant.
Could witness a ten year old being raped and simply walk away.
Or how Penn State can survive the financial tornado about to shake its very foundation.
I think about the horrors suffered by a young boys already disadvantaged by the cards that life has dealt them.
Boys targeted specifically because of their misfortune.
They're lacking in social and economic support.
At risk kids from broken homes and Foster care.
Who wanted nothing more than a chance -- happiness a new pair of sneakers.
A walk on the sidelines of the big game.
The -- -- files insinuate themselves into the lives of the -- list.
They walk among us -- pillars of the community masking the evil wind and make no mistake the number of these boys is not -- it's more like eighty or 800.
I've prosecuted these cases for thirty years.
And one of these victims the one in the shower who knew that an -- saw his right.
And didn't lift a finger to protect or defend him and simply walked away.
He like the other victims will for ever look at the world through the prism of that one singularly traumatic event.
Every future intimacy will be affected by the indelible memory of their predator.
A trusted member of the community.
There is a special place in the hell reserved for those who violate our children.
And I don't see any shades of gray here it's about right and wrong good and able.
I don't much care about the story tradition of a football hero.
I care about children who knew that we knew and knew that we did nothing.
Joseph you were right.
You said pray for the victims and while you're at -- -- he should say a prayer for yourself.
