Joe Paterno

Linebacker Video KILLED

Over Sandusky Appearance

11/19/2011 5:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jerry Sandusky interacting with young boys
A Joe Paterno approved instructional football video has gotten the death sentence from distributors over a segment involving Jerry Sandusky interacting with young boys ... one of whom may have been among the alleged victims.

The video -- titled, "Joe Paterno: Linebackers" -- was released in the late '90s and features Sandusky running a hands on tackling drill with a group of young boys. A screen shot from the video appears above.

According to the infamous grand jury report in the Sandusky case, the person identified as Victim #4 participated in "a video made about linebackers that featured Sandusky."

The name of the video is not mentioned in the testimony, but we can't seem to find any other instructional video about linebackers that features Sandusky.

Now, TMW Media Group has pulled the video off of its website -- and a rep tells us the company will no longer offer the video for sale strictly because of Sandusky's involvement.

In light of the cir****tances that victim number 4 may be one of these young men, your placement of this screen capture is practically child porn to me. At the least, it could be considered bullying and mocking a victim. Juvenile, crass,not even remotely funny. I know you guys have pretty low standards but I didn't think you could stoop THIS low. I guess your arrogance makes you all are immune to all criticism. Be careful, because one day you might go too far for a lot of people like Perez Hilton did. Hell, this could be that day. There are a LOT of celeb gossip websites out there and you all share the same info pretty much. We don't really NEED your site.

Nice of the media to basically identify an underage victim of rape. There really is no integrity in journalism.

This video was posted in very poor taste TMZ. It is revictimizing the victims. It made me cry (not laugh). I can see why you thought it was funny to post that pic - but sexual abuse of defenseless children is not funny. You can't call it news - because that particular screen shot was not necessary to get across your news story and it also appeals to prurient interests.

Guys, I read your site a few times a day and while I don't always agree with how a story gets spinned or some of the things you say, I always enjoy reading. This photo however is only bringing out the sickos who think this is funny and it also torments all victims of this kind abuse by having to see the photo. Please, from all of us, please at least take the photo down.

Is it me or is the state of Transylvania the new Florida ? These bloodsuckers are so gross if this pic alone doesn't make your blood boil then you need serious intervention. It isn't funny at all like some are joking about it . It's time for you to get some HEART.

Remember this, the Players in this outrage have been knowing it would hit the news.TWO YEARS They all had PLENTY of time to secure their properties. This , to make sure ,tthe victims could not SUE them for everything they own. So once again the Victims lose and the people responsible cover THEIR asses and Eff the victims once again. SHAME GAMES

If ALL the victims of abuse would unite we could VOTE OUT of office ALL who turned the blind eye. Abuse Victims UNITE in PRAYER AND your POLLING PLACES..
