kind of sad, but this is probably a generational thing. the guy was born in the '20s and went to brown. in the UK, many parents groups are actually trying to silence their own kids in the public schools for speaking out against molestation by staff and other students, because it is a british public school tradtion and you are expected just to endure it, as if it toughens you up or something. paterno probably absorbed these values from an ivy league that was waspier and more britishy in his day.

What I think is fucked up is the fact that Joe P gives 50 years of his life to coaching and a allegation that he knew something or turned a blind eye is all that it takes to ruin his career, reputation and get him fired. I mean no court, no jury, no trial. Nothing. Allegation and done with.

There is no doubt that JoePa knew about what Sandusky was doing and still kept him as his assistant coach. He should not only be fired but never again allowed on Penn State campus. And any object on campus with his name should be instantly removed, as if he has never existed.

i wonder whether we as a country were smarter as an electorate when we didn't have mass low culture. today it's sports and kardashasians, but it goes as far back as hearst newspapers and yellow journalism.

the fact that you can toss a ball farther or catch it better than 99% of the population gets you a pass on a lot of things in this country. if kobe couldn't ball, he'd be in prison like any other rapist. apparently this privilege is extended to coaches as well. if joe p were coaching HS ball and not famous, he'd be looking at a couple of years of prison time for failing to report a dangerous serial child molester.

oh well this is going to be an interesting clash between two distinctly american phenomena: the insane reverence for football and the insane hatred of child molesters. it's going to be explosive.

I feel bad for Joe Pa tho, he did something- it just wasn't enough. After 61 years he deserves better, he's being scapegoated on some level. I do feel that he did too little, but at the same time he probably believed that when nothing was done that Sandusky was innocent. Don't forget that this was a man that JoePa thought the knew, thought was a friend, and worked with him for 30 years. I assume that Joe would rather believe (however wrong it was) that this man couldn't possibly have done it- and the lack of action supported this. The smarter thing would have been to go to the real cops, and I bet he sees that now.

JoePa isn't the one criminally indicted, so presumptions of innocence don't apply. The fact is that JoePa was confronted with a report of child abuse by a subordinate and didn't take the steps that society deems necessary in these circumstances. No one is disputing that fact. He admitted it himself - albeit Joe is saying hindsight comes into play- that he didn't do enough.

11/10/11

He said that he didn't do enough which means many different things. All I am saying is this is fresh, all the facts are not out and people are attaching him as if he raped the kids himself.

What facts are going to come out that can possibly affect Paterno's culpability? If he had gone to the police when he was first notified, or if there were communications between him and the University's administration where he was pressing for action, those would have been the first things brought up after everyone looked to him. Nobody is going to sit on that kind of information with the whole nation calling for your termination. The bottom line is that, regardless of whatever verdict is leveled at Sandusky, Joe Paterno took the bare minimum of steps required by law when faced with allegations that a subordinate was committing an awful crime. No one is saying Joe had to go physically stop Sandusky. The point is that he should have alerted the police and taken the steps incumbent upon a man of his influence at State College - and supposed integrity - to follow-up.

Not sure how much you have followed the story or watched ESPN the last week or so. But yes there is facts these allegations were coming due starting way back in 2002, JoePa did nothing then. Further 11months ago when they went onto a deeper investigation again he basically did not do what society deems is correct. He basically admitted this today . You really think the trustees made this decision based on 1 day of information and facts?

Very well put. I'm not saying that JoePa commited a criminal act. However, we do know for a fact that back in 2002, a 28-year old graduate assistant told JoePa that he saw Sandusky molesting a ten-year old boy in the locker room showers. And yet, he did not alert the police but chose to give his assistant coach the benefit of the doubt. JoePa did just the bare minimum in this regard. Sandusky's actions were disgusting and morally egregious. JoePa's GROSS negligence warrants his immediate dismissal as head coach.

11/10/11

Most important in all of this is profit. The line has moved to PSU +3.5. Will the team rally around the memory of their former coach, who probably hasn't called a play in 5 years, and pull the upset or does Nebraska, motivated to stop sexual assaults against children, send a message and beat down the Nittany Lions and thus cover the spread.

Your thoughts?

Sweet old Joe Paterno is in reality an incredibly self-serving man. For years he has pushed back against administration urging him to retire, before he gets his 400-whatever career win. Even today his narcissism shone through as he attempted to remain as coach for the rest of the season instead of actually thinking about his f***ing players and resigning immediately, so that the incredible media spotlight that will be on them for the rest of the season might actually be a little less glaring. I don't understand how you can not even ask Sandusky about McQueary's allegations, much less call the damn cops or follow up after you tell the AD, and then still have the audacity to consider yourself a role model to a bunch of 19-22 year olds.

This does not take away from his educational and philanthropic contributions, but the man is clearly an egomaniac.

Edit: The BOT did a nice little chicken sh** move by firing him over the phone instead of in person. Piss poor.

Is Nebraska -3.5 this weekend at Penn State the bet of the season or what?

It's worth stating that JoePa had a courier arrive at his home last night with a letter for him instructing him to call the phone number in the letter. Once he did, he was fired via that phone call.

~50 years of service, most winningest coach in D1A football, fired over the phone.

Please stop with your mindless drivel about "those kids about Penn State." You know nothing about the school, you know nothing about Joe Paterno or what truly happened (none of us do as we only know what has been reported), and to be perfectly frank... you are making yourself sound like an idiot with your 5th grade logic and soap box rhetoric here. Sweeping generalizations are easy for one to make anonymously, on an internet forum, with the full benefit of hindsight, after thousands have already criticized. Please get off your fucking high horse because you sound like a douchebag. It may very well be that the man did not do enough, but we don't have all the facts yet, and while you jumping to conclusions and airing your ill-informed opinion may be your right, it doesn't make you sound any less of an idiot. Reserve judgement until you know all the information. Everyone is making it sound like the man didn't take this to the authorities, when the reality is he escalated this to the highest ranking police official in university park. While, I'm still unsure whether he did what was enough in the eyes of society, I have never been in his situation, and surely cannot be so hypocritical as to judge merely through the benefit of hindsight. I can, however, say this, that Joe Paterno is not the type of man who would have simply turned a blind eye to such events if he had had both proof and firm conviction of what went on. I think people are overlooking how difficult it must be to have such a situation brought before you when you did not see it, the witness bringing you the information while appearing genuine has not done so immediately (reports clearly indicate that there was a lag, and that he could not be characterized as an outcry witness), and the accused is someone considered by everyone in the community to be above reproach. This is not a simple issue, and while I can't go so far as to say that I blindly support his actions, what I can say is that I don't know enough to have a strongly informed opinion on the way he handled things. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families first and foremost, and my heart is broken for both them and for the school and its faithful. Hopefully all is brought to light so that we may have enough facts to weigh what has been done intelligently and in proper discourse, but until then I think people are being far too rash in their judgment.

Dude's always going to be a legend in college football and it doesn't detract from his record BUT it's a gross oversight as a coach, especially when the guy is being charged with 40 counts of molestation.

Nebraska - 2.5 (opening line) may have been one of the best bets of the season. NOW, Neb - 3.5 could end up being the lock of the decade. Just thinking about the football teams (and ignoring the scandal) penn st is ridiculously over rated, they have no offense whatsoever. I'm not a huge believer in Nebraska, but how do they not win by a touchdown or more?

Saying that Paterno "knowingly tried to cover it up" is a bold statement and one that I think is pretty baseless at this point in the investigation.

"The Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal is a 2011 child sexual abuse scandal involving allegations against former Pennsylvania State University football assistant coach Jerry Sandusky and allegations of a university coverup of those incidents.[1] Sandusky, a longtime defensive coordinator under head coach Joe Paterno, retired in 1999 but retained access to Penn State's athletic facilities. A 2011 grand jury investigation reported that Mike McQueary, then a graduate assistant, told Paterno in 2002 that he had seen Sandusky performing a sex act on a 10-year-old boy in Penn State football's shower facilities. Paterno then reported the allegations to Penn State athletic director Tim Curley."

He didn't report the incident to the police. The AD didn't report this incident to the police.

It's a coverup plain and simple

Joe reported it to his higher ups. How come the 28 year old grown man didn't just call the cops. I fail to see how one is excusable and the other doing the same thing is covering it up.

Game over? The dude is 84 how long did you think his game was going to last? This was the last year of his contract and he was going to leave anyway. This gave the university a chance to save a little face, expedite his departure and look like they're actually sorry about it. The guy will be a legend forever there and in College Football.

Dude's always going to be a legend in college football and it doesn't detract from his record BUT it's a gross oversight as a coach, especially when the guy is being charged with 40 counts of molestation. You can't tell me that Pa shared the locker room with Sandusky for over 30 years and didn't figure this out... it was the fact that he knowingly tried to cover it up.

Saying that Paterno "knowingly tried to cover it up" is a bold statement and one that I think is pretty baseless at this point in the investigation.

"The Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal is a 2011 child sexual abuse scandal involving allegations against former Pennsylvania State University football assistant coach Jerry Sandusky and allegations of a university coverup of those incidents.[1] Sandusky, a longtime defensive coordinator under head coach Joe Paterno, retired in 1999 but retained access to Penn State's athletic facilities. A 2011 grand jury investigation reported that Mike McQueary, then a graduate assistant, told Paterno in 2002 that he had seen Sandusky performing a sex act on a 10-year-old boy in Penn State football's shower facilities. Paterno then reported the allegations to Penn State athletic director Tim Curley."

He didn't report the incident to the police. The AD didn't report this incident to the police.

It's a coverup plain and simple

Actually, Gary Schultz oversaw the entire University Park Police force at the time, and the University Park Police force has all the authority to enact justice as any municipal police force. It would have been the same as if he had taken it to the Chief of State College Police. His actions followed protocol, but also were in fact, escalated to the highest level of the University Park Police hierarchy, there's no one's head he should have gone above, and to go around Schultz would have been a breach of protocol.

I agree, it's not excusable for any of the parties.

Neither are facing jail time and neither should be affiliated with the Pennsylvania State University going forward. However, in this country we tend to hold people in positions of power to a higher standard and level of scrutiny and I wouldn't be surprised if the guy who witnessed the act got to keep his job (or at least fired later in a more discrete manner).

I just want to make sure I follow this logic.

Paterno did not witness the act, received second hand information from another party. He then reported this information to his boss, and you are saying that Paterno covered it up? The actual adult that witnessed the act didn't call police or attempt to stop the act in question. Instead he called his dad and his dad told him to come home. They then reported it to Joe, THE NEXT DAY. McQueary has not been fired yet BTW.

Further, in the report it states that Sandusky had emeritus status, which means he had full rights as regular faculty, including an office. Further, It states in the report that as a former coach, he has full, unrestricted access to Penn St football facilities, including the locker room.

During the time of this incident in 2002, Sandusky was not an employee of Paterno's, he was there working simply as the founder of a charity. All delegation of authority and responsibility goes to Paterno's superior's because they are the ones that granted him emeritus status and wrote the rules about past coaches having access like this.

So again, how is Paterno the ring leader here?

Breach of protocol? If you see action not being taken after knowledge that sexual molestation was potentially occurring in your locker rooms, you're shouldn't follow up and report it to the state police?

Paterno reported it to his superiors, one of which is the head of campus police.

1. McQueary's employment status with the university is irrelevant when examining Paterno's lapse of judgment...
2. No one is calling him a ring leader, get your straw man shit out of here
3. Who cares if McQueary didn't report it? That's irrelevant (so fucking childish... BUT BUT IF MCQUEARY DIDN'T DO IT WHY DO I HAVE TO????)

Joe did not proceed with this to the best of his ability. Agree or disagree?

Let me tell you what. I am over 28 now and I walk into a school shower and see a grown man fucking a little kid and I am going to kick that dude in the fucking teeth. I'm not going to run away like a pussy and allow that kid to continue to get fucked.

Holy fucking shit this is the dumbest logic I have ever heard.

McQ, a grown fucking man, saw the act, did nothing to stop it or contact the police. He told Paterno.

Paterno then told his superior's one of which oversees campus police.

Well, his contributions to PSU as a coach are separate from the case at hand. The Board of Trustees obviously thought that there was enough of a moral lapse to let him go so ignominiously before the end of the season. If it wasn't such a clear cut case, they would have let him bow out gracefully at the end of the season.

The facts aren't clear but it could go both ways. Paterno worked with this asswipe for 30 years... it's impossible to say if he had a clear conscience the rest of the way or if he knew more of the shady shit that was going down.

http://abcnews.go.com/Health/jerry-sandusky-penn-s...

You can't evaluate the mindset of a 10 year old and expect them to have the decision-making capability of an adult... to do so is unfair on your part. Additionally, even if they were an adult, asking why they didn't do more is akin to asking a rape victim why they didn't come forward. Yes, it would be great if they did so that they may have the opportunity to prevent it from happening to others, but that is a very delicate area to tread in, and I cannot begin to try to call into question the thought process of someone undergoing such a trauma. I think that they are the only ones who can make the determination of what to do in that situation, and for ANYONE to judge them one way or another is simply cheap.

You can't evaluate the mindset of a 10 year old and expect them to have the decision-making capability of an adult... to do so is unfair on your part. Additionally, even if they were an adult, asking why they didn't do more is akin to asking a rape victim why they didn't come forward. Yes, it would be great if they did so that they may have the opportunity to prevent it from happening to others, but that is a very delicate area to tread in, and I cannot begin to try to call into question the thought process of someone undergoing such a trauma. I think that they are the only ones who can make the determination of what to do in that situation, and for ANYONE to judge them one way or another is simply cheap.

This is insane and utterly idiotic. Seriously, state school kids are fucking morons. Their entire lives revolve around their football team and beer pong. Goodness sakes. These kids need to get a life.

why we as a country are obsessed with sporting leagues occupied by felons-in-the-making with nothing but contempt for the rest of us puzzles me.

I agree. Just another symptom of our country's decline. Seeing a bunch of grown men cheer and go crazy over a group of thugs playing football is pretty hilarious.

look at your username...

Yup. I'm a new england patriots fan. But I would not march out onto the freaking streets because something bad happens to my team, and my core existence does not revolve around sports. That's the difference between myself and those kids at penn state, or most state schools for that matter. At the end of the day, I recognize sports for what it is-an entertaining diversion from my daily routine.

As a fellow Pats fan I can honestly say I'm ashamed to be associated with you, even in such a trivial way. You, my friend, are the epitome of douche.

Bottom line, the 28 year old should get raped in prison for not shit kicking that piece of shit Sandusky.

11/10/11

The guy that saw the actual act needs to kill himself. What a pussy bitch.

Paterno did the bare minimum, the absolute bare minimum. This guy has so much fucking clout and is a God at PSU, and he does next to nothing after hearing the news. On a moral level, this guy is a piece of shit.

I really don't understand people running to Paterno's defense. If that were your kid getting pounded and you found out that Paterno didn't do anything of note to solve the problem and seemingly moved on with his life, I think you'd probably want him dead.

Not to mention, Paterno was on the board of Sandusky's foundation (apparent sex ring). And Sandusky would hang around the PSU campus and football facilities for YEARS after the incident that was witnessed. The dude was around the PSU weight room within the last two weeks!

So, yeah, JoePa isn't guilty of any crime...but he sure as shit seemed to have no problem with a fucking child rapist hanging around him or his players.

How is this defensible?

11/10/11

^ yeah where the fuck was that guy in all this? does he think it is normal for a grown man to be sexually attacking a child?

we get all high and mighty judging the nazis, etc. and the average german for not standing up to them, but talk about fucking failing the test of integrity on this one. that kid needed an adult to help him THEN AND THERE. i used to think that we as americans are exceptional in that we say fuck you to authority figures when it is immoral, but i have to start rethinking that.

11/10/11

To add: The fact that the 28 year old graduate assistant did something worse does not mean that Paterno did no wrong. Two wrongs don't make a right, folks. It's humorous to hear people defend Paterno for telling his boss as enough but excoriate the 28 year old for doing essentially the same thing.

And holy fuck, do we really hold people to such low standards? Do we really hold our leaders to such low standards? Paterno is/was a GOD on PSU's campus with more power than just about anyone, and THAT's what he did? And some of you find that acceptable?

Holy fucking shit.

11/10/11

Again, it doesn't seem like many of you have read the link the OP provided.

Sandusky had emeritus status, meaning he had the same privileges as regular faculty, including an office at PSU.

Further, I believe I read in the report that PSU also allows former coaches unrestricted access to PSU football facilities, including the locker room.

This entire story is sickening. There was an interview with one of the victims' older sisters, who is now a junior at penn state, and she described hearing her classmates joking about the kids getting "sanduskied."

Aside from the pedophilia, this episode reveals the obsession with sports on college campuses, which results in athletes and coaches being held to a different moral standard. They don't give a damm about the professors or the students' actual quality of education while coaches and athletes are treated like gods.

Dude, I have already said this...I CLEARLY understand why he was able to go to PSU whenever he wanted. You are not enlightening anyone.

Did someone go to a big ten school? Buddy the scandal is blown well apart the facts are well on the table.

I agree with ANT, that Joe Pa isn't directly or even remotely responsible; but as a leader of an organization, the buck must stop some place.

This is about to get even worse. Not sure if this article has been posted yet, but take a look
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/11/10/penn-stat...

The cover-up thing sounds plausible. The guy was 55 and at the top of his game. In this article (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vault/article/mag...), Sandusky said "I am a little disappointed I couldn't become a head coach." A ton of prominent athletes/coaches have charities and they still do their normal jobs. Why wouldn't he go for a head-coaching position then? Either everything was swept under the rug by Penn State (unlikely IMO, unless more details come to light later), or his "unique method" of fundraising took priority over his coaching career (more likely).

JoePa obviously deserved to be fired...but I can't believe McQueary is being allowed to coach on Saturday. JoePa had more influence, but McQueary saw what happened...which should make him more culpable. They're going to have to give him a ton of security...given how there were so many PSU students rioting in the streets, it wouldn't surprise me at all if somebody decided to try and put him in the hospital. My guess is that he'll be gone soon as well

EDIT: Nvm, McQueary isn't coaching on Saturday due to threats

A ton of prominent athletes/coaches have charities and they still do their normal jobs. Why wouldn't he go for a head-coaching position then? Either everything was swept under the rug by Penn State (unlikely IMO, unless more details come to light later), or his "unique method" of fundraising took priority over his coaching career (more likely).

JoePa obviously deserved to be fired...but I can't believe McQueary is being allowed to coach on Saturday. JoePa had more influence, but McQueary saw what happened...which should make him more culpable. They're going to have to give him a ton of security...given how there were so many PSU students rioting in the streets, it wouldn't surprise me at all if somebody decided to try and put him in the hospital. My guess is that he'll be gone soon as well

McQ is not going to be at the game on Sat now for "his own safety"

Again, it doesn't seem like many of you have read the link the OP provided.

Sandusky had emeritus status, meaning he had the same privileges as regular faculty, including an office at PSU.

Further, I believe I read in the report that PSU also allows former coaches unrestricted access to PSU football facilities, including the locker room.

What is your point? I don't think that fucking little boys in the ass is a privilege of regular faculty.

King, your ignorance is truly boundless.

You seemed confused as to how Sandusky is able to rome around PSU campus whenever he wants.

That's how.

Are you serious? My point is that the fucker should've never been allowed BACK on campus after the truth of him fucking children came to the light. I'm saying that fucking a little boy in the ass and getting caught should lead the school to ban him from campus (along with having him arrested.)

What is your argument even? How is this ignorant?

Sandusky...is that you?

well it wasn't revoked, and that is how he had the right to still be where he wanted at PSU.

Dude, the fact that it wasn't revoked and that he wasn't arrested is the entire reason why this is a scandal and the entire reason why this is a thread.

You are making a point about nothing and an argument against no one.

King, you are so dense it is unreal.

You are clearly confused about how he was able to go wherever he wanted at PSU. There is a lot of stuff that should have happened in this situation, but it didn't and because it didn't, the man still had free rein to go and do what he wanted.

I am not arguing that someone should have done something, I am telling you why he was still able to come and go as he pleased.

why we as a country are obsessed with sporting leagues occupied by felons-in-the-making with nothing but contempt for the rest of us puzzles me.

I agree. Just another symptom of our country's decline. Seeing a bunch of grown men cheer and go crazy over a group of thugs playing football is pretty hilarious.

i wonder whether we as a country were smarter as an electorate when we didn't have mass low culture. today it's sports and kardashasians, but it goes as far back as hearst newspapers and yellow journalism.

the fact that you can toss a ball farther or catch it better than 99% of the population gets you a pass on a lot of things in this country. if kobe couldn't ball, he'd be in prison like any other rapist. apparently this privilege is extended to coaches as well. if joe p were coaching HS ball and not famous, he'd be looking at a couple of years of prison time for failing to report a dangerous serial child molester.

oh well this is going to be an interesting clash between two distinctly american phenomena: the insane reverence for football and the insane hatred of child molesters. it's going to be explosive.

Very well put. I'm not saying that JoePa commited a criminal act. However, we do know for a fact that back in 2002, a 28-year old graduate assistant told JoePa that he saw Sandusky molesting a ten-year old boy in the locker room showers. And yet, he did not alert the police but chose to give his assistant coach the benefit of the doubt. JoePa did just the bare minimum in this regard. Sandusky's actions were disgusting and morally egregious. JoePa's GROSS negligence warrants his immediate dismissal as head coach.

I totally agree with everything was said if this is in fact what happened. I read the Grand Jury report and it wasn't clear to me whether or not MacQuery (I'm not looking up how to spell his name) told Joe that "Sandusky was molesting a kid in the shower" or something along hte lines of "Hey I saw Sandusky and some kid horsing around in the shower, might want to look into it.."

Also if its the situation you outlined in your post, I think its unacceptable that MacQuery hasn't been indicted on failing to report child abuse to the authorities. I mean for God sakes he's the one who saw it.

There is more stuff coming out every day, and this investigation is FAR from being finished. We now know that back in 1998 a victim's mom told campus police, and they confronted Sandusky about the incident. Their response? Rather than arresting that pervert ASAP, they gave him a slap on the wrist and said, "Jerry, you can't go around taking naked showers with little boys." Sandusky then went into "voluntary" retirement but had full access to psu's athletic facilities until last week!

There is no way that JoePa did not know about this investigation. And his decision to not aggressively follow through and make sure Sandusky was punished, is simply outrageous. JoePa's supporters argue that he took proper legal action by alerting his "superior," the athletic director, about what McQueary witnessed back in 2002. What a joke. Everyone knows that JoePa was the most powerful man in state college and that the buck stopped with him. At best, JoePa engaged in gross negligence and should be sued in civil court. And at worst, JoePa engaged in criminal wrongdoing, hence his decision to hire a defense lawyer from king&spalding.

This is far from over. And I suspect that as more details are revealed, JoePa's supporters will start having second thoughts. Or at least I hope they do if they care more about justice and morality than football.

I find it very hard to believe that if any of you worked with someone for as long as Paterno worked with Sandusky that any of you would actually contact the police based on something you heard second hand, even if it was something like this, killing hookers Ridgeway-style, etc.

By the way, state police had Sandusky on wire tap saying to a victim's mother that he "maybe....maybe not" touched her son. This was about 10 years ago and nothing was done. While what Joe did was probably the bare minimum, considering the circumstances of his relationship to Sandusky, I can't say I would have acted differently. If someone tells you your brother was caught in the shower with a child, you simply believe it? Fuck no, and any of you who say otherwise are retarded. There were so many opoprtunities to stop this before Joe Paterno's actions made any difference to the case. No one seems to be talking about that the DA from the beginning of the investigation has been declared legally dead after going off the grid almost 6 years ago.

This is just like the Duke Lax case a few years ago. The school has to pretend to give a shit so they take some wild measures against people who turn out to have no/minimal involvement just so they can satisfy Nancy Grace and Jemele Hill. And the state police are going to attempt to clear themselves of doing anything wrong, which is exactly what police do, so try not to believe them because they had more than enough info from previous investigations and still did nothing.

I will be cheering proudly for PSU football this weekend, especially since Taylor Martinez throws like a girl and does not deserve to lead the Cornfuckers to a bowl game.

Wrong. Sandusky confessed to the crimes back in 1998 when he told the victim's mom that he wants her forgiveness and wants to die. The 2002 shower incident witnessed by McQueery was NOT the first or only incident of this. The cops, joepa, and other higher-ups at penn state knew about Sandusky's perversion going back to 1998. I don't give a flying fuck how long paterno worked with sandusky or how close their relationship was. Paterno should have done the morally right thing and made sure sandusky was punished ASAP for his heinous crimes. Rather, Sandusky was allowed to voluntarily retire while still having access to the facilities and continuing his molestation of little boys under the guise of his "charity" for disadvantaged children. Unfuckingreal.

I don't think any more detail is required. You either agree, or disagree, that knowledge of a colleague ass raping a little boy is worthy of being brought to the police. Jo Pa admitted he knew. He admitted he was told, and while he brought it to others inside the University, he did not bring it to police. These are the facts, as they stand without moral judgement.

Now, given those facts you can pass judgement on him, or not. You are free to argue that he did all that was required of him, or you are free to argue that he should have brought it to the police and that not doing so makes him a degenerate and maybe a criminal. My personal view is that anyone that knew should be hanging from the rafters, including Jo Pa. If that was my kid that got a penis in the rear, I guarantee you I'd be at old Joe's house well before the cops, and we'd have a nice long chat about why he didn't end that child rapist immediately.

I don't get the people in here defending Paterno. Dude did next to nothing considering his clout. He knew about Sandusky and told one dude who did nothing...and then they let a child rapist come and go on campus as much as he wanted afterwards...and he was still running the fucking charity that supplied him with victims.

I am confused by this. The first time this came to light was in 98, Sandusky retired in 99.

As I have said numerous times (and is in the grand jury indictment if you read it) Sandusky had emeritus status, giving him full privileges as regular PSU faculty.

Also, per PSU policy, former football coaches have unrestricted access to PSU football facilities, including locker room.

Sandusky has not been a part of JoePa's staff since 99.

No, certain people are once again confused about how Sandusky is able to be on PSU campus and seem to think he is a part of JoePa's staff. He hasn't been for 14 years.

I am in no way defending Sandusky. He is a piece of shit. But Sandusky's emeritus status and former coaching privileges are something given to him by PSU, not JoePa. There needs to be more blame placed on the PSU higher ups and less of a witch hunt on JoePa here. It is way too early to be looking to hang JoePa from the rafters.

Ok, so regardless of when he was no longer officially on Joe Pa's staff, he had the privileges you mentioned, and he continued to be heavily involved in campus activities, so everyone knew he was still around. They still interacted with him. It was obvious that, by virtue of still being a free man, the police hadn't followed through. The fact that he didn't report to Joe Pa anymore doesn't seem to have much relevance. At the end of the day, those that knew did not follow through to make sure the guy got prosecuted. You seem to be saying there is nothing wrong with that.

Not to mention, he sure as shit shouldn't be allowed to run a charity for at-risk kids anymore.

I don't see what you don't get here.

No, certain people are once again confused about how Sandusky is able to be on PSU campus and seem to think he is a part of JoePa's staff. He hasn't been for 14 years.

I am in no way defending Sandusky. He is a piece of shit. But Sandusky's emeritus status and former coaching privileges are something given to him by PSU, not JoePa. There needs to be more blame placed on the PSU higher ups and less of a witch hunt on JoePa here. It is way too early to be looking to hang JoePa from the rafters.

I agree the focus is on Joe Pa, but my point addresses him as an equal partner with everyone that knew. Lower level staff, University administration, etc. Anyone that knew and did nothing to make sure he was prosecuted needs to hang.

He admitted he was told, and while he brought it to others inside the University, he did not bring it to police.

This is a highly debatable opinion.

He informed Schultz, who was head of campus PD. How is that not informing the police?

Even if you allow that, do you think it's sufficient not to follow up? I mean, the guy continued to be on his staff for years. So the real question is, once anyone of them found out, why wasn't it front and center until resolved? Why wouldn't any one of them take it upon themselves to confront the guy, dig around to see if it was true, and make sure that if it was, the real police were involved and arrested the guy? This isn't a booster giving a student athlete a car, where you could say "eh, no big deal, wink wink nod nod". This is child ass rape. Any human being that discovers another human being ass raping a 10 year old kid should make damn sure it stops, and that the rapist is hung from a tree by his balls.

I am confused by this. The first time this came to light was in 98, Sandusky retired in 99.

As I have said numerous times (and is in the grand jury indictment if you read it) Sandusky had emeritus status, giving him full privileges as regular PSU faculty.

Also, per PSU policy, former football coaches have unrestricted access to PSU football facilities, including locker room.

Sandusky has not been a part of JoePa's staff since 99.

If you are going to hop in and comment, please do your research first.

Ok, so regardless of when he was no longer officially on Joe Pa's staff, he had the privileges you mentioned, and he continued to be heavily involved in campus activities, so everyone knew he was still around. They still interacted with him. It was obvious that, by virtue of still being a free man, the police hadn't followed through. The fact that he didn't report to Joe Pa anymore doesn't seem to have much relevance. At the end of the day, those that knew did not follow through to make sure the guy got prosecuted. You seem to be saying there is nothing wrong with that.

I know less about the incident in the late 90s, but from what I have heard the issue was actually brought to the district attorney and he failed to do anything about it. The victim's mother contacted the police, etc.

Again, I am not defending Sandusky, but people are seeming to think that JoePa went out of his way to protect this guy and there is nothing to support that yet.

Innocent until proven guilty.

You're born, you take shit. You get out in the world, you take more shit. You climb a little higher, you take less shit. Till one day you're up in the rarefied atmosphere and you've forgotten what shit even looks like. Welcome to the layer cake, son.

Nothing I posted suggested Joe Pa went out of his way to protect him. I've consistently said he seemed not to follow up, which to me is the same thing. Also, he already publicly acknowledged that he should have done more, that he should have followed up. So maybe innocent until an admission of guilt applies here?

JoePa is a college football coach. He doesn't have the power to prosecute anyone. He went to his superior and informed him. The superior was also head of the campus PD.

Quite honestly, there needs to be more hatred and anger directed towards McQ. He saw it actually going down and went home to sleep on it before doing anything.

Fact of the matter is there is a lot we don't know still. This is going to get a lot worse before it gets better.

JoePa is Penn State. Imagine if this happened at Duke and Coach K did the same thing Paterno did. Kerzooski would be crucified, and rightfully so. No different from what JoePa did. The bare minimum with no follow up, enabling a child rapist to roam free and continue to run a charity for children (and sit on the fucking board of it!) The excuses made for the most powerful man at Penn State are disgraceful.

THAT'S RIGHT I SAID KERZOOSKI!

You're deflecting. Nobody suggested he should be the one prosecuting. That's obvious and dumb.

People are suggesting that he should have had the moral aptitude to stay involved until a trial took place, and either sanduskies guilt or innocence was proven in court.

The hatred directed at Joe Pa is equally shared by everyone that knew.
