Yep, just came in to post "cycle of abuse."

Just a spiral of awfulness.

So fucked up. Was he adopted by Jerry?

I used to be a student security guard at Penn State 2001-2002. Twisted to think I was there during that time frame and had shifts near the football buildings in the Summer prior.

The lawsuit to vindicate poor innocent JoePa is dropped leading into a holiday weekend, a week before a new report is due to be issued in the suit.

Fuck JoePa and fuck Penn State.

It's not Penn State, but I think it should be stated that Michigan State's athletic program should be burned to the ground as well.

Burn it all down. USA Gymnastics, the school, coaches, anyone who knew and did nothing.

He's a sick fuck, and the 175 year sentence is unnecessary cause he won't survive more than a year in prison.

They'll put him in protective custody.

based on the court proceedings, it's obvious he's a world-class coward. 100 bucks says he'll off himself as soon as he gets the chance.

He had the wrong judge:

He got the sentence he deserved, and he'll never see the outside again. I also had no issue with that Judge Aquilina allowing all the Nassar's victims to speak, and their families. It's an unusual move, most judges would limit that kind of thing, but in this case I think it was justified.

That said, I can't say I'm a big fan of this style of judge...I've practiced in front of people like this before. Most lawyers, on both sides, who work in courtrooms don't like judges like this because they're unpredictable. And her comments in sentencing were a little self-aggrandising in my opinion. She referred to herself a little too much, then started praising the media, then started talking about what interviews she'd accept, how disgusting the defendant was, how she wouldn't trust him with her dog, etc...all from the bench. That just makes is seem like she's letting her personal feelings influence her sentencing (even if that's not the case). Now she's a social media sensation (surprise) and everyone is talking about what a great "advocate" she is. That's what we call show horse judge. And the irony is she repeatedly said "It's not about me" while talking about herself.

I know most people watching on TV love to see this kind of crusader/victims advocate in judges, and think it's great, but that's really not why they're there. Most judges would just deliver the sentence, maybe a few comments on the heinousness of the crime, and that's it. Go much beyond that and you start to lose your appearance of impartiality. Not saying she's a bad judge, and that she doesn't follow the law, and she's obviously a good person. But I don't think this kind of "advocate" judge is really what the judiciary is supposed to be about.
