Convicted child molester and former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky is stealing headlines and “Trending” on Twitter for his, some say modest, 30-year prison sentence.
While sharing Community Media Lab time with fellow reporter Sean Dalton, I pieced together a series of tweets from around Washtenaw County and the state about the 68-year-old convict and his crimes against children. I can’t lie, most of the tweets I came across were inappropriate to publish – but they were damn entertaining, to say the least.
Of the appropriate-ish tweets I could use, one made me chuckle and I had to read it aloud to my coworkers. Twitter user @Matt Sussman tweeted: “Hopefully we can get back to #Sandusky being a conversation about the county with all the roller coasters.”
Indeed, sir, indeed.
