Speedy trial and endless media coverage used to cover up larger sex ring?
June 22, 2012
Jerry Sandusky has been convicted of 45 counts of child sex abuse less than eight months after Penn State and the world were rocked with the revelations that the former football coach had sexually assaulted numerous children.
Sadly justice may have only been partially served with the corporate controlled media and most of the world ignoring the initial claims that Sandusky was running a child sex ring through his foundation, Second Mile.
Months before the Sandusky story broke through the corporate media, little known sports reporter Mark Madden broke the story which was then largely ignored.
Shortly after the corporate media finally started to report the story and the scandal became known worldwide, Madden and others in the corporate press then reported a series of shocking claims that were then backtracked and labeled as “rumors” and unfounded without so much as being investigated by one major paper or cable news outlet.
An article published on the blog section of the Huffington Post on November 11th, 2012 reported on the claims by Madden and others which were originally aired on a radio show and through numerous nondescript tweets.
Shockingly, there are reports that even more depraved details about the sexual crimes allegedly committed by Sandusky will be revealed in the coming days. As the quasi-riots shook the Penn State campus late Wednesday evening and early Thursday morning, SportsByBrooks began tweeting ominous messages about allegations that have yet to become public.

Mark Madsen went on to make similar claims in a radio interview:
“I can give you a rumor and I can give you something I think might happen,” Madden said on the radio. “I hear there’s a rumor that there will be a more shocking development from the Second Mile Foundation — and hold on to your stomachs, boys, this is gross, I will use the only language I can — that Jerry Sandusky and Second Mile were pimping out young boys to rich donors. That was being investigated by two prominent columnists even as I speak.”
Listen to Madden’s claims in full below:
Two more tweets from corporate media journalists also spoke about the possible wider pedophile ring:
@greggdoyelcbs I’m told Penn’s atty general has this sick Sandusky rumor on the radar. Warning, awful read http://t.co/Wy4uiuiD
Soon after this was reported, writers began to speculate that another Franklin Scandal was on our hands and that the shocking facts would begin to be exposed and many other powerful people in America would be identified as pedophiles.
In a similar vein, political bloggers Michael Collins, Roger Shuler and Wayne Madsen allege that the scandal could implicate prominent Penn State supporters in sex or cover-up — and that it has parallels elsewhere, including the so-called Franklin Scandal two decades ago and centered on Omaha and Boys Town in Nebraska.
“The current focus on Pennsylvania State University, its football program, and former coach Joe Paterno will be replaced by a more pervasive sexual assault scandal in the coming days and weeks,” predicted Michael Collins on Nov. 14. “At-risk children and their often disadvantaged single parents were delivered up to a relentless sexual predator with exhibitionist tendencies as described in the findings of a special Commonwealth of Pennsylvania grand jury.”
That same day, Roger Shuler in Alabama wrote in Will Penn State Scandal Finally Bring Child Sexual Abuse Into the Spotlight?:
Are Americans finally prepared to face an issue that more or less disappeared when reports about the Franklin Scandal surfaced in the late 1980s? The Franklin Scandal involved a child prostitution ring that had origins at orphanages in Nebraska and reportedly made its way to the Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush administrations. Investigative work by The Washington Times brought the story into the open. Craig J. Spence, a Republican lobbyist who reportedly arranged nocturnal tours for male prostitutes at the Reagan White House, was found dead in a room at the Boston Ritz Carlton in November 1989.
Of course, as we now know, the story was never fully reported and went on to be ignored and covered up by the corporate controlled media.
A quick look at those involved with the Second Mile Foundation confirms that many within the foundation and the official governing board are apparent upstanding citizens who at the very least should have known about and looked into the claims against Sandusky that went back at least ten years.

Sadly, the fact is, no one actually knows whether or not these claims are true because the corporate media refused to look into them.
One logical and possible theory as to why this happened is that many of the people that actually own the major media outlets could have possibly been identified due to the fact that many were and are connected to the Second Mile Foundation either directly or indirectly.
While the corporate mockingbird media continues its non stop coverage of the Sandusky conviction we must remember that they refused to even look into the much more startling and hardcore claims that Sandusky was pimping out children to the rich and powerful through his charity.
“Since 1977, The Second Mile has followed the path of its founder, Jerry Sandusky, to help Pennsylvania’s children achieve their potential . . .”
– Quote formally found on the Second Mile website –
This is really quite a tragic story. I remember watching US college football,since the 1970’s , and while never a fan of PENN State, I admired the way the team was always a powerhouse. That is based on recruiting, talent and coaching. Joe Paterno was an icon and a key part to the success.
When this story broke…it was quite a shock…it sort of blindsides one. Even worse, is that it had gone on for such a long time. How could Paterno not know? How can people who seemingly have it all so willing to toss it away? Or , even worse, is this exactly how they got to the top…? which is increasingly becoming my opinion..the old ” sell one’s soul for success ” ?
Paterno ” got cancer “shortly after this scandal broke and died not long after. Coincidence? I don’t think so. I have read enough on the underbelly of covert operations that “they” can make you have a quick lethal cancer as an assassin’s tool. Paterno likely knew too much and had to be eliminated.
Now, this addendum to the story, that the net is much wider. Not at all surprised. This seems to be formulaic and literally epidemic, that such parties in such positions get their own thrills, act as a recruiter and pimps for others. Many people must have known, besides the victims. In addition, I highly doubt this is the only institution this is going on, other such stories could break any day.
As this unfolds, there will be many nervous people out there….is Sandusky gonna spill the beans, or be the scapegoat, or have an accident in prison…..
Sick sick world out there.
