If this following report isn’t a sign that the apocalypse is upon us, well, then I don’t know what will prove it:
A defense attorney for accused child molester Jerry Sandusky has claimed that the former Penn State assistant football coach showered with young boys in order to teach them how to wash properly.
In an interview with WHTM-TV in Harrisburg, Pa., attorney Karl Rominger attempted to explain the 67-year-old Sandusky’s admitted habit of showering with boys after football camps that he ran through his charity for disadvantaged children, The Second Mile.
“Some of these kids don’t have basic hygiene skills,” Rominger said. “Teaching a person to shower at the age of 12 or 14 sounds strange to some people, but people who work with troubled youth will tell you there are a lot of juvenile delinquents and people who are dependent who have to be taught basic life skills like how to put soap on their body.”
Sandusky has admitted in televised interviews that he showered with boys, but denies the behavior was sexual in nature.
Other options the lawyer considered stating:
– TSA security training
– the devil made him do it
– all accusers are lying because they simply want the fame from talking about how they had been molested to as many people as possible (oh … they used this one)
– they were really little girls (oh … that is illegal too)
– the truth (not an option)
The apocalypse can be the only explanation I can think of for any lawyer thinking anyone would believe any aspect of this bunch of bullhockey.
It is an insult to our intelligence.
And possibly a reflection of how far lawyers will go to stretch the possibility of truth under the guise of ‘innocence.’
Silly. Stupid in fact.
And if people end up believing this … well … yes … the Apocalypse has arrived.
