0623_jerry_sandusky_getty_2An attorney for Jerry Sandusky said Saturday his client has been placed under suicide watch for his own safety. 

Karl Rominger told CNN that Sandusky is being held in protective custody -- separate from other inmates -- as he awaits sentencing.

He explained, "The judge in this case and the warden in this case decided to take a measure not meant to suggest in any way that he is suicidal, but simply to put the precautions in place first and then evaluate later."

Sandusky was found guilty yesterday on 45 of the 48 counts against him. He will be sentenced in about 90 days.

Another observation ... I would like to take a big bite out of that delicious looking bull standing in the lower right hand corner of the picture. He looks a little shorter than usually like them, but I'm not real tall so it would work. I love big guys. Yummy yummy bull.

Actually, Jerry has been in close contact with his pastor the past several months and I'm sure has asked God for forgiveness (if you beleive in the invisible man in the sky). So, Jerry will be in heaven but not with everyone here who harbors hate and persecution. Funny how that works. Don't forget, that day on the cross, Jesus (a convicted felon) didn't take and honest man to heaven with him, he took a criminal.

To no. 1, Dita Wildflower--thank you for your comment. This isn't about Jerry Sandusky--it's about the kids. My family is praying for their healing. And now, because of their bravery, they are no longer victims. And others will more easily speak up.

I know there are several problems getting information from someone who has been sexually abused , the shame, the who will believe me? and so many more, which are all 'valid' to each.The one that I believe lets a number rise to the high forty's in this case, which is not a significantly HIGH number when dealing with molestation, which should make us all get on our knees and pray,at anyrate I believe the main reason young adults (this is how old when finally they seem to have the will) do not come forward sooner ,thus then making the number lower, is the way we as a society treat these victims, we whisper, we nudge each other, and the list goes on.It is as if unintentionally we BRAND people.We need to have help in making it possible for molested children to scream out if they are in bed, scream out in a locker room, in a house... we must make them feel safe, no one is going to kill there family and all the junk they are told.I know this is long, but please understand we can not help if we do not know, and shame on those who do know and stay quiet! One last thing, why are these people let out of jail? this is a violent crime, those in authority need to get the pot smokers OUT and all non violent crimes and make room for these guys
