Quietly, pushed aside, Corbett gave the Sandusky case 1 investigator. So as to not rattle the Penn State faithful at the voting booth, Corbett pulled all stops to win the Governor's office.
One term and done, Tommyboy.

Freehs investigation seems bogus when he does nothing but praise Corbett and the job his DA office did to investigate Sandusky. It almost seems like the whole investigation was to deflect all criticism away from Corbett. I think the investigation was bad and the conclusions reached from the investigation were poor. This wouldn't be the first time Freeh, the bureaucrat, was way off base or even doing some covering up of his own.

Should of known you start eevery lying BS topic. Does it even bother you how much you lie at this point? Yes he is republican so i guess you need to hound sites like this one and huffington post to get your lying, misleading, and overall misinfomred news. Never been a harsher AG on sex offenders then Corbett. I dont like him personally but stop lying. The only crapola is what you post.

Louis Freeh's report on Penn State and the Jerry Sandusky case is notable partly for a criticism that it doesn't make: The former FBI director found no fault with Tom Corbett's handling of the criminal probe that ultimately brought down the serial child predator. That's because Corbett got it right.

Some of the commentary that followed last week's release of the report accused the governor and former attorney general of sitting on his hands by not arresting Sandusky after the first victim came forward. In fact, a reporter brought up the issue hours after the report's release, asking Corbett if he should have acted more quickly.
It's easy to sit behind a computer and critique a case like this when you don't understand the day-to-day workings of the justice system and its often harsh realities for victims. As a survivor of sexual abuse, I do understand those realities.

I have devoted much of my life to advocacy for victims of rape and abuse, including some of Sandusky's victims. And I can attest to how difficult it is for a boy or young man to admit to a courtroom full of reporters and others that an older man groomed him for sex acts.

Now take such a victim, probably the product of a fatherless home, and pit his word ó with no physical evidence ó against that of a football hero and founder of a renowned charity. With one troubled boy facing a local celebrity with an ice cream flavor named after him, what are the odds of a conviction?

In my career as an advocate, I have seen too many single-accuser cases fail after an aggressive defense lawyer plants the seeds of confusion and doubt in a jury. Some of Sandusky's victims have said they would not have come forward if other victims were not expected to testify. They needed the strength of numbers. And when they realized the extent of Sandusky's predation, they felt not only the strength to testify, but also the duty.

"An acquittal in this case would have been absolutely devastating to the psyches of these young men," Ben Andreozzi, an attorney for some of Sandusky's victims, told me. "The survivors welcomed cautious and thorough efforts by the Attorney General's Office to ensure that they were not exposing themselves and the nightmares of their past to the mass public in vain."

To take down a pillar of the community, you need a jackhammer of a case. Corbett understood that. And when the complaint reached him ó unlike others who had suspicions about Sandusky's crimes over the years or even witnessed them ó Corbett acted.

Kenneth Lanning, a retired FBI agent and expert on crimes against children, said cases like this are complex and time-consuming, and they rarely offer second chances.

"The more prestigious the guy is, the more respected the guy is, the more complex the case is going to be," Lanning told me. "What made it [the Sandusky case] a successful prosecution is that they didn't rely on one victim. They found eight."

And because they found eight, Jerry Sandusky is off the streets and away from our kids.

1 investigator before the election. 8 after. You figure it out. We know that's asking alot. He might as well have raped them himself.

"As governor, Corbett is an ex-officio trustee of Penn State. According to the Freeh report, when the board met to decide the fate of Joe Paterno and others, Corbett admonished his fellow trustees to "remember the children."

That was good advice. But we must ask whether the former attorney general followed it when he was in charge of pursuing a predator who remained free to molest more children."

What did all of them have to do with Spanier announcing he had a job with the Federal Government and a top secret clearance right after he got axed . The Board of trust , Paterno , Curley , Schultz , Spanier all threw a hand grenade and stuck their fingers in their ears and forgot to say (duck). Then they all got hit with shrapnel when it went off.
