Alumni-based Penn State group blasts Freeh report

Published: Thu, September 13, 2012 @ 3:43 p.m.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — A group of alumni and others with ties to Penn State is finding a lot to criticize in the Freeh report that detailed the university’s response to reports that Jerry Sandusky was behaving inappropriately with children.

Penn Staters for Responsible Stewardship said its review of the report turned up “failures” involving lack of disclosure, witnesses who were not interviewed and a supposed lack of evidence to back up conclusions about senior university administrators.

The 57-page report said the university should have examined the role of state and local government officials and Sandusky’s charity, The Second Mile.

Sandusky is awaiting sentencing on 45 counts of child sexual abuse.

Penn Staters for Responsible Stewardship calls itself an organization of alumni, students, supporters and friends of the university.

It really has nothing to do with football. Actually it is more about crisis management and completing due diligence when fact finding for reporting. It's about correctness of data, and making intelligent decisions based upon that data. And it's about doing the right thing, whatever that may be, even if it opposes initial public opinion in today's PC world. Jury should still be out.

Why should the JURY still be out? No one put a gun to the head of Penn State officials to make them sign off on the sanctions. If some of those people in charge at Penn State would have done the right thing in the first place, then this problem would not be a topic of discussion. What about The JURY that never came out for those kids? Joe Pa and company covered up PEDOPHILIA.

If you think Penn State football is having a rough go of it now, it is only going to get worse. Much WORSE, at least they have some legitimate Div. I players on the roster now, those D-I players are going to be few and far between in the years to come. Good luck recruiting at Pedophile State University!

I want to know if any of the commenters here have read the Freeh report? Any of you five above--have you read the report?

Fortunately opinions are not permissible in a court of law. It's very sad to me to see the ignorance that runs rampant on the internet. Educate yourselves prior to commenting. Again, it's not about football.

To the Penn State apologists upset with findings of fhe former director: Your criticisms may end when you finally realize FBI does not mean "Fully Buggered Ingrate."

I read the Freeh report as well. I am well versed on the subject, and while I do have my opinions, I am reserving them for comment after all the facts come to light.

Arod, you are completely wrong as your logic is flawed. Sandusky, a sick individual, would have acted similarly no matter what his situation, and likely would have gone largely unnoticed. It is only the program's success under Paterno, not only on the field but also in the classrom, that has propelled the alleged scandal to the national spotlight.

Yes, I DID read the report and the conclusion that Freeh's investigation came to (pages 13-15) was that Curly, Spanier, Joe Pa and Schultz FAILED to protect against a child sexual predator harming children for OVER A DECADE.

You can bad mouth Freeh all you want, but his credentials are pretty strong. But hey, when you don't like the message, bad mouth the messenger.

Exactly what did Freeh use to come to those conclusions? I'll tell you, nothing substantial In the report, it seemed to me he was reaching, coming to a quick conclusion to appease a person or group. Please prove their guilt. I think you'll have a hard time... epecially in front of a judge and jury. Freeh's credibility can certainly be questioned.
I choose not to be a sheep and follow the flock. I like to base my opinions on complete information. In this case, there are too many holes that need to be filled before I can definitively say innocent or guilty. I'll wait... The perpetrator of the crime is in jail and going nowhere... He won't hurt anyone anymore. There is time to wait for Curley and Schultz to have their date in court. We'll see what comes to light.

How about the credibility of Spanier, Schultz, Curly and Paterno? No, cover-up there?

Pedophile State University's Board AGREED to the sanctions. You can't take a plea bargain and then complain that you want a trial.

To those that read the report-could you please point out where evidence was proffered in the report that justifies its conclusions about Paterno?
