by Moody Adams The coach declares he is innocent. One witness says he saw him. The media declares he did it. One professor speculates there are 1,000 victims.
There is one of three possible cases in the Penn State incident. 1. One is that Sandusky is as guilty as the media presents him. 2. Then there is the possibility that the ‘witness,’ had some personal reason to accuse the coach and bring him down. 3. Also, it is possible that the accusers are coming forward to win a lot of money from the University and staff in a civil suit.
In the Ten Commandments, God said, “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor” (Exodus 20:16).
Is the witness against the former coach a "false witness"? It is the job of the courts to decide this.
