Update: Jerry Sandusky on Suicide Watch; Sanctions possible for PSU?

Update from MSNBC:

Karl Rominger said Sandusky was under individual guard at the county jail, known as suicide watch, and was apart from the general prison population, Reuters reported. 

It was not clear if Sandusky had acted in a way that threatened his own life, or if the move was standard procedure in such a high-profile case.

Rominger reiterated that the former defensive coach for Penn State football will appeal the verdict, a process that can happen when Sandusky is sentenced in 90 days or so.

Make no mistake, this college football story is a not a football story. It’s a million times bigger than that. The Harrisburg Patriot-News’ Sara Ganim won a Pulitzer for reporting on this, and she’s a news reporter, not a sports reporter.

Jerry Sandusky was convicted tonight on 45 of 48 counts of child sex abuse. Even his own adopted son accused of him of doing so. Per sentencing guidelines, he’ll get at least 60 years, and faces a maximum of 442 years in prison. He’ll find out his specific fate in 90 days, but this much is clear- he’ll die in prison and rot in hell.

JUSTICE has prevailed!

But what about the Penn State program?

Penn State Campus Now Rioting, Demonstrating (Photos)

In a span of five days, we’ve seen the Penn State Nittany Lions sex scandal go from breaking news story, to earth-shattering scandal to surreal,”take a moment to remember where you are” type of media circus.

And it’s perfectly understandable, since new information breaks every hour, and the situation gets darker, weirder, sadder and indicative of the worst elements in human nature every time news breaks.

Now the students in University Park have taken to the streets, yes they are demonstrating, rioting. Yes rallying and taking grassroots political action supporting Joe Paterno. Now that JoePa has been fired, that town is going to burn.

Here are some photos:

Penn State had to make some heavy decisions these past 24 hours as the Jerry Sandusky scandal has snowballed into one of the biggest stories in college football history.

Jerry Sandusky’s Book entitled “Touched,” Getting Deservedly Slammed on Amazon

In the wake of the Penn State sex scandal, the fact that a book called Touched, the story of Jerry Sandusky’s life in his own words, still sits on Amazon’s virtual bookshelf is both disturbing and horrid.

This disgusting coincidence is highlighted by many Amazon “book reviewers.” We’ll show some of the best best book reviews after the jump. Sandusky’s autobiography highlights his college football career and his involvement in children’s charities, including the founding of his charity, “Second Mile.”

Which we all know now he used to find his vulnerable boys to prey upon and sodomize (allegedly).
