Accused Child Rapist Titled His Memoir 'Touched'
From the Department of You Can't Make This Shit Up: Jerry Sandusky, the retired assistant football coach from Penn State who has been accused of molesting dozens of boys, has a memoir on Amazon titled Touched.
Yes, really. Touched: The Jerry Sandusky Story was published in 2001. Only a "leather bound" copy, priced at $59.95, is currently listed for sale, but that seems to have been sold off.
Despite the lack of sellable copies, Amazon users are calling for it to be pulled from the store, lest Sandusky somehow see another dime from them. A slew of one-star reviews have popped up for the book today, including this one:
Mr. Sandusky is both a genius and a narcissist, which makes him the perfect predator. At no time was his narcissism more apparent than when he titled his book "Touched". I guarantee this coward will "off" himself, before he ever spends a day with the general prison population. I, for one, would like to see him spend the rest of his life locked up with the general prison population; then, perhaps he can write the sequel entitled "Touched II: Predator Becomes Prey".
Sandusky has two other books listed on Amazon, co-written with Cedric X. Bryant, on the topic of coaching linebackers.
But, yes. Touched. I don't even know where to begin. I'd make a joke, if not for the crushing depression inspired by this story.
If you haven't been paying attention, Sandusky allegedly used his position as a high-ranking college football coach and a founder of childrens' charities to molest and rape young boys. On Nov. 4, he was indicted in Pennsylvania on 40 counts of sex crimes.
If that's not terrible enough, school officials, from the University President on down to a gradate assistant WHO ACTUALLY WITNESSED SANDUSKY MOLESTING A CHILD, turned a blind eye to the coach's behavior.
Last night students at Penn State rioted when the school's head football coach, Joe Paterno, was fired. They felt he had been wrongfully terminated. For protecting a guy who was raping kids.
And then Ashton Kutcher got involved and made the whole thing worse.
I'm really struggling to write something clever to end this article, but I can't. This is just the worst thing I've read about in a very long time and it sucks on every level that it exists.
