GAME OVER for Paterno. Campus Violence Erupts.
Did the college do the right thing?
I believe JoePa needed to leave, however, I believe the college should have allowed him to retire rather than being fired.A meeting withthe coach should have been held and the trustee's views communicated to him. I believe the coach would have stepped down immediately.I believe all would have accepted him announcing his immediate retirement and the protest would have been eliminated.
How ins God's name can anyone justify him staying? Is the football program more important than the ruined lives of those victims? Hello?
I feel sorry for JoePa... but not as sorry as I feel for the victims of a predator who was allowed to stay under the umbrella of Penn State even after his abuse was known. This is a story of hubris, victory at all costs, and money trumping morality. There ARE no winners at Penn State.
THANK YOU JERRY
This made me cringe! How dare we as a nation take the side of someone who showed such cowardice that he put ANYTHING before a child (and now we know children's) safety!
what is penn state famous for, academically?
ub's athletics are ridiculoully mediocre, but it's academics terriffic. what about penn state's academics
does this mean no retirement check is that the real reason
Joe Pa seems like a good guy, however today people will not stand for this kind of behavior. The Penn State staff tried to cover up a crime and got caught, there needs to be a clean sweep of anyone involved in this.
no possible rebuttal
Jo Pa seems like a nice guy,however today people will not tolerate that kind of behavior. Several persons in authority at Penn State tried to cover up a crime and got caught. The staff that are responsible needs to be removed from the University.
This continues the ever present pattern of behavior in the educational system where the "educators / coaches" operate outside their area of competence and try to investigate, coverup or ignore sexual criminal activities instead of reporting to law enforcement for investigation that, they, the educators/coaches are not qualified to conduct.
It is very, very clear that officials at the highest level of authority at Penn State openly engaged in a cover up of child rape. At every level, clear evidence of criminal activity was covered up to preserve money, power and status. Further, we now know that one coach, McCleary, personally viewed a child rape in progress and did nothing about it. We now know that no less than 4 senior level Penn State managers engaged in a conspiracy to bury this criminal activity. On top of that, we had the clearest example of moral rot when Penn State students rioted, not in protest of children being raped, but because Coach Paterno had been correctly fired. This is where we are at as a society.
