Jerry Sandusky in Jail

Inmates Sang Pink Floyd

'Leave Those Kids Alone!'

0625_jerry_sandusky_mugshotJerry Sandusky was mercilessly taunted for HOURS during his first night in jail back in December -- when his fellow inmates chanted Pink Floyd's famous lyrics ... "Hey teacher, leave those kids alone!"

One of the men in the facility at the time -- a 22-year-old named Josh -- described the events to The Daily, saying they sang the song over and over ... all night.

68-year-old Sandusky spent the night in jail following his second arrest on December 7th, 2011 -- after a grand jury voted to charge the former Penn State football coach with an additional 12 counts of child abuse, bringing his new total to 52.

That's when the above mug shot was taken.

Four counts were eventually dropped, leaving 48 remaining. Last week, Sandusky was found guilty on 45. He's currently awaiting sentencing behind bars.

Sandusky faces a maximum of 442 years in prison.

They sang a Pink Floyd song all night? When did jail turn in to an episode of Glee?

While I'm glad Sandusky will rot in prison (and a tad disappointed we don't just put him to death), it's not right as a society to be okay with inmates raping inmates as some kind of extra punishment. We shouldn't be allowing this to occur. If we are going to put 1% of our population in prison and most of them are going to get out at some point, it's probably not a good idea to allow the prisons to be absolute hellholes. I'm just sayin'

Even though Jerry Sandusky is a pig and deserves to fry for his crimes, I think it is sad so many people find it OK that we allow rape on a massive scale in prisons as some kind of "extra" punishment. We should be inundating inmates with classical music and Science channel do***entaries, not allowing the "inmates to run the asylum".

I REALLY hope Sandusky gets to FEEL the ire of other inmates, especially inmates who are lifers and have nothing to lose.

It's a shame this monster will be in protective custody until he dies which shouldn't take long.

As Attorney General, Tom Corbett received over $200,000 in campaign contributions from members of the Second Mile Foundation, while only assigning one investigator to the case.

Meanwhile, at the same time, he assigned 14 investigators to Bill Deweese, who spent more than 5 years trying to get him.

It is difficult to believe these campaign contributions did not improperly influence his decision to not file charges against Jerry Sandusky.

The state police trooper who initially handled the Clinton County case against Jerry Sandusky believed there was enough evidence from a teenage boy -- now known as Victim One-- to charge Sandusky with indecent assault.

I hope Sandusky has a sense of humor. He'll need it. However, I suspect that he will become a hightly respected jailhouse celebrity just like Dennis Kozlowski.

So, Now he's is in his own environment. I bet he'll be hearing some skin slapping now. And he's going to be on the receiving end. Do him good prison people, Just Do It........LOL

From Penn State to the State Pen. What a horrible POS this guy is. Unfortunately, he will stay in protective custody until the day he dies, or until he is released, which is possible. Not that the rapists will target his old ass, just the murderers and gang bangers, but he needs to experiance and eye for an eye.
