This article was written Feb 13 by Mark Scolforo for the Star Tribune. This article provides details about the judge's decision that the jury for Jerry Sandusky's child sex abuse trial will consist of people who live in and near State College and he also gave him permission to have visits or other contact with most of his grandchildren.
This article had some implict arguments presented as facts. It is important to point out that I do not disagree with the author but there is value in recognizing his arguments and goal of writting this article.The author mentions the amount of criminal charges, although it is not nessecary in the context of this article unless it is being used as support for his argument that Sandusky is guilty and should not be able to see his grandchildren. The author also mentions that he is confined indoors after fielding concerns by neighbors about the safety of children, particularly at an elementary school behind Sandusky's house. Then procceds to mention that Cleland denied that motion. I think this is because the author thinks this is why and he is interjecting his opinon into the article.
I think that this author is drawing on the readers emotions or using pathos here because of the circumstances. These crimes he is charged with enrage and provoke fear in readers with children.
