At the same time, there were some disconcerting remarks made in the great desert known as the internet hoping that Sandusky is (there's no gentle way to put this) raped in prison so he can get a taste of his own medicine.
Sandusky in jail for life makes sense. But a prison system where being raped is widely considered part of the punishment package, not so good. Years ago I knew someone who was tossed in the clink as a teenager for stealing a car. He spent a week in jail, where he was sexually assaulted by another inmate. Needless to say, he shouldn't have stolen the car. But the punishment in that case certainly didn't fit the crime, and the experience left life long mental scars on someone who has otherwise been on the straight and narrow ever since..
I don't believe in the death penalty (too many chances for mistakes) and I also don't believe two wrongs make a right. Hoping for more crime -- raping a rapist (or anyone behind bars) -- is not the sort of American "justice" we should be cheering...
