When Sandusky got down to the purpose of his grooming, the sexual abuse of boys, his behavior was, at times, flagrant. Twice he was caught and reported for forcing sexual acts on male children in the PSU showers. Was Sandusky out of his mind with this ultra-high risk behavior?

Perhaps, but Sandusky behaved as if he were immune from punishment for his swaggering displays of deviance. Why else would he tempt the fates with the shower rapes unless he knew that fate wasn't involved; unless he knew that he had enough power to defy the most powerful people at the university, including Coach Joe Paterno?

If you know anything about the story of Joe Paterno's reign as one of the greatest coaches of all time, imagine being asked this question prior to this case. What would the coach do if his former star quarter back (McCreary) told him that his longtime assistant coach was having anal sex with a child in the team's showers? Sandusky would have been banished from the university and turned in. He wasn't.

If you are at all familiar with public universities, what would any university president do if he found out that his high profile football assistant coach was caught having anal sex with a child in the team showers? If for no other reason than fiduciary responsibility and concerns about liability, the president would report the incident to child protective services and banish the assistant coach from the university. PSU president Spanier did neither.

All of those powerful PSU officials who heard about the March 2001 incident did nothing. When they were interviewed by police and called before the grand jury, they claimed that McQueary never explicitly mentioned sexual activity. The grand jury and trial juries disagreed.

What power did Sandusky have?

Did he know something so compromising about the university that it got him off the hook?

Did he have friends even more powerful than Paterno, Curly, Schultz, and Spanier?

If so, what favors did they owe Sandusky to enlist their protective services?

Until we know who Sandusky had on his side to allow his flagrant public deviance, we won't know the true story of the Sandusky case.
