Bob Costas has a hard-hitting interview with alleged pedophile Jerry Sandusky. The video above is a small portion of the interview in which Sandusky admits showering with boys but denies any inappropriate contact. Because of the explicit nature of the conversation between Costas and Sandusky, I decided not to embed the full interview in this space. If you want to see the entire interview, you can watch it here. The interview was broadcast earlier this evening on NBC’s “Rock Center.”
There are lots of reasons to doubt the truthfulness of Sandusky’s denial, but the most telling one comes near the end of the full interview when Costas asks Sandusky if he is attracted to young boys. Sandusky does not answer the question like any other normal male would answer the question. He hems and haws and then finally gives a denial.
I believe in Proverbs 18:17, and I believe it is good and right to hear both sides of a story. But having heard the man speak for himself in this interview, I am even more convinced of this man’s guilt.
In a related story tonight, the Penn State assistant coach Mike McQueary who witnessed one of the assaults is now saying that he did act to end the assault in progress. According to the NBC News, McQueary says,
“I did the right thing…the truth is not out there fully…I didn’t just turn and run…I made sure it stopped…I had to make quick tough decisions.”
