This is despicable, disgusting. Anyone found guilty of being involved in this in any way should get hard prison time.

There are reports that the potential victim count is up to 20. 20. And Sandusky was still on campus just last week.

From Penn State to the State Pen. And no pats on the behind or playing pick up the hankie with the referees.

Jo Pa. Didn’t call the cops, did you? Handed it off and all that was done was Jerry can’t have little kids over for sleepy or showers or abuse. How was that first meeting with Jerry after the allegations? Did you talk about lineups? Wine and food? Upcoming opponents? Your wives and children? YOU DIDN’T CALL THE COPS. Now the chickens come home to roost and it is a sad sight. All them years and all that respect…Pfft! It’s a kid. A freaking kid, Joe. A damn kid.

WTF. Heads need to roll and prison sentences need to be handed out like bribes at a college football recruiter’s house.

Paterno had this pristine reputation among college coaches until this incident (St. Joe, Joe Pa, etc).

Same reason the Catholic Church or any other big player organization shields offenders: Too much to lose for the involved individuals when one of them starts being a threat to any other one.

Iron Law of Oligarchy.

The Superficial summed up why nothing had happened to this bunch of assholes.

Good. Awesome. Fuck his legacy. I don’t care what kind of “institution” Joe Paterno supposedly stands for because he tells someone where to throw a piece of leather, but it’s safe to say it fails basically every single tenet of human decency when it responds to the following situation like so:

“Hey, this guy’s raping kids.”
“Yeah.. but football.”

The reason he was shielded was for the same reason that the Catholic Church shielded its pedophiles. The Faith must be protected at all costs.

I found this comment on the nose:

This isn’t about Sandusky. This is about a culture that says the football team must be defended at all costs: a culture where the sexual assault of a 10-year-old is reported to Paterno before the police.

This is what happens when a football program becomes the economic and spiritual heartbeat of an entire section of a state. Nittany Lions football regularly draws 100,000 fans to Happy Valley. They also produce $50 million in pure profit for the university every year and have been listed as the most valuable team in the Big 10 conference.

Another economic report held that every Penn State game pumps $59 million into the local economy: from hotels to kids selling homemade cookies by the side of the road.

It’s no wonder that Paterno is revered. He took a football team and turned it into an economic life raft for a university and a region. When something becomes that valuable, a certain mind-set kicks in. Protect the team above all over concerns. Protect Joe Pa. Protect Nittany Lions football. Protect the brand. In a company town, your first responsibility is to protect the company.

It also comments about the Miami Hurricanes and Nevin Shapiro who is currently serving 20 years for running a $930 million Ponzi scheme involving wining and dining college players. Money taken gladly by college administrators who never questioned where it came from.

Of course, child molesting is far, far worse, but its indicative of how money and prestige is valued over all.

And here, the children are forever cursed, if they can manage to grow up and live a normal life. It’s beyond words.
