The "star witness" describes a horrifying encounter that he was convinced was sexual molestation, if not outright rape. He watched for six seconds, and then walked away. He says that both victim and aggressor looked him in the eye.

I couldn't have walked away. I think they should throw this guy in the cell with Sandusky.

(edit: if in fact it was molestation/rape, and Sandusky is proven guilty, of course)

I'll take Manhattan in a garbage bag. With Latin written on it that says "It's hard to give a shit these days"

This is one of those situations where people surprise themselves. It can happen in either direction. I do not have any issues with the concept of someone realizing that what they consider moral behavior and what they can live with happen to be different. The interesting question is wheter someone that learns something new about themselves that way will change their self image to come to grips with their behavior, or just rely on the might of cognitive dissonance.
