You people don't know what your talking about. Paterno did what he was supposed to do. He acted on the word of someone else and reported it. From there it was the responsiblity of the higher ups to investigate and consult with the police. Most of us at work have a chain of command and Paterno followed that. The ignorent comments and his firing was unjustified.

Joe Paterno consulted with a lawyer who represented a President.

What do you think that means?

If you read the grand jury report, McQueary looked into the shower and saw Sandusky sodomizing a boy he said was about 10 to 12 years old and his reaction was to draw away and call his father for advice. I think his first response, if he were a real man, would be to yell at them, run in the shower, pull them apart and start kicking the living sh!t out of this pervert. That is the justice that this situation called for; not some sort of "reasoned" response and following some chain of command. I mean, what did he think this boy was thinking or doing later that night? Maybe the young boy was thinking "Why didn't that guy say or do something to help me?" This is the problem with our politically correct, "me-first" society that we have created. There are certain things that are always right and wrong, black and white with no shades of gray. In my book, adult men sodomizing young boys is always wrong and the response must be swift and viciously tough. All it takes for bad things to happen is for good men to do nothing.

Sandusky was employed by Penn State for 23 years as the defensive coordinator of its
Division I collegiate football program. Sandusky played football for four years at Penn State and coached a total of 32 years. While coaching, Sandusky started "The Second Mile- in State College, Pennsylvania, in 1977. It began as a group foster home dedicated to helping troubled boys. It grew into a charity dedicated to helping children with absent or dysfunctional families. It is now a statewide, three region charity and Sandusky has been its primary fundraiser.I The Second Mile raises millions of dollars through fundraising appeals and special events. The mission of the program is to "help children who need additional support and would benefit from positive human interaction." Through The Second Mile, Sandusky had access to hundreds of boys, many of whom were vulnerable due to their social situations. Sandusky retired from The Second Mile in September 2010.

Anyone who covers up for child molesters and rapist should be in jail.

One of my friends put the whole Paterno thing into a perfect perspective for how I feel about the whole situation.... here it is: "If a man has the ability to put out a fire and save lives, does he do it? Or does he tell a friend about it and leave it up to him?" That says it for me, too.

All of the above is my choice.

DWAP :

"Where is that snap lady who professes to care about the exploitation of children?

I suspect that Judy from SNAP is all about the money that can be gotten from the Catholic Church . With Jerry Sandusky there must not be enough money involved . . ..

Walter I think you said it best. I posed this question to people at work, if they witness a similar situation at work would they go and tell a manager or call the police. I think most real men and woman would call the police. Although plan B of " pull them apart and start kicking the living sh!t out of this pervert" seems like a pretty good idea as well.

This is a sick world we live in when such atrocities to defenseless children are covered up this way. Throw them all in jail. I can't imagine witnessing something so horrible such as McQuery did and just slink away like that! I would have tried to break it up, and I'm a woman!
My heart bleeds for those poor children.

We have but seen the tip of the iceberg at PSU . The campus of today is not your ancestors campus . Students rioted when those whom they look up to have been fired . Criminal charges have been very slow in forthcoming . A sexual act with a minor in a shower got a feeble responce . Now would all this indicate some severe problems or just sanctioned activity ? Would it be hateful to term this the decay of society ? I see no pride here . . ..
