Attack on Paterno is unfair

I am very upset how Joe Pater- no, a loving and kind man who cared about helping young people and loving his wife and kids, is being treated.

To blame him for what this other sicko did to those poor kids is a bigger crime. He didn’t see him do it and he went and told two men ;they were the ones that covered it up.

Paterno and the president of the college should not be blamed for this cover up. Taking his statue away to me shows no respect for a man who loved his college, helping young people and his family. He had helped more young people in his lifetime than anyone else. Now they want to kill Penn State football and take away from the young men that want to play football for this college.

Shame on them. They are going too far to hurt everybody at this college — to take away their dreams to go to this great college because of one man who did this crime to these kids and the two men that covered it up.

Everyone at that college — the great coach and the great players and the fans and the great young people who go to this college — are being blamed for it too. This is wrong; this is a bigger crime.

Lena, JoePa's silence and inaction allowed 8-10, that we know about, more boys be victims. Take off the rose covered glasses, JoePa was part of the cover up.

Lena has written a letter filled with assumptions about a man she obviosuly has never met or even studied. She simply has no clue what she is saying. Several men of great stature and power, one being Paterno, let a pedophile go on raping on campus rather than risk the university's (and their own) reputations.

It is ironic that Joe Paterno and Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua were both born in Brooklyn, New York in the 1920s. Both were involved in repressing information on child abuse in their respective organizations. And both escaped criminal punishment by death.
