Jerry Sandusky Greeted By Fellow Prisoners Singing “Hey, Teacher, Leave Those Kids Alone”
If there’s one thing I’ve learned from watching Law & Order for twenty some-odd years, it’s that the convicts populating America’s prisons have a strict moral code.
Swindling, robbing, stabbing, shooting, and raping are all okay, so long as the victims are adults. But if you molest kids, well that’s just wrong. And when you get to jail, you’d better sleep with one eye open.
This is what makes the conviction of former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky at least somewhat gratifying. You can never take back all the pain he caused for those poor kids over the years, but now that he’s been convicted of 45 of those 48 child molestation charges, at least we all know he’ll get what’s coming to him. Wink, wink.
Don’t believe me? Well, how about a former inmate of the Centre County Correctional Facility who was there when Sandusky was there for a night back in December—would you believe him?
According to an interview with this guy named Josh (who didn’t want his last name revealed for obvious reasons), the night Sandusky spent in jail back in December was a raucous one. Though prisoners were barred from interacting with the piece of human excrement directly, they could see him. And after the lights were out, they sang the scumbag a lovely a cappella lullaby.
What did they sing? Pink Floyd’s “The Wall”—specifically, the part that goes, “Hey, Teacher, Leave those kids alone.”
That’s pretty clever for a bunch of low-life criminals, don’t you think? If nothing else, it portends an unpleasant life behind bars for Joe Paterno’s former right-hand man.
So have fun in prison, Jerry. You earned it, buddy.
