Folks, this is Joe Paterno's legacy.
E-mails jump into my inbox defending Paterno...
I won't remember what Paterno did, but what he didn't do. What he didn't do is what got him fired...
Firing Joe Paterno doesn't fix everything, but it's a great start.

From the column: What is the over-under number on how many people have to know about a depraved predator working under their noses before one of them takes a step to stop the predator and protect the victims? Jay Bilas, the ESPN college basketball commentator, called it "a conspiracy of cowards."
From the article: Today, for the first time since the scandal broke, the outside world doesn't have to ask, "Is everyone associated with Penn State football completely delusional?"
This is what a personality cult who deifies people becomes....as this columnist pointed out how JoePa was "glorified and defied."
From the column: With responsibility comes responsibility."
From the column: "With the benefit of hindsight, I wish I had done more," Paterno said in a statement. That's pathetic. You need hindsight to tell you that you must do whatever you can to stop a dangerous criminal?
From the column: Several e-mailers demand, "Have you ever heard of due process?" The due process I've heard of involves a justice system and a legal trial. Paterno faces no legal action or charge. Legally, his rear end is covered. But there was no trial when Paterno was sainted, no jury declared him one of the noblest and finest college coaches of all time. The public decided. It's the same deal on the flip side...
The media is being delicate in describing this as molesting. This is a homosexual man sodomizing 10-year-old boys. Out-and-out child rape. The homosexual element is most probably the reason nobody did anything about it. Queers are a protected class. Thats why the truly disgusting behavior at fag pride parades are never reported. That and the high number of homosexuals in the news media.
Frankly, I wouldnt be surprised to find these rapes to be a cherished tradition in an entire filthy hive of fags centered in the university.
seems to me McQuerey needed to go before Joe but what do I know.
I’m surprised the SF paper thinks there is anything wrong with what happened.
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing
Keep your eyes on Joe everybody! Keep your eyes on Joe! Don’t look over there, don’t look at this whole thing may be much much bigger than Joe, like a pedophile sex ring catering to rich and powerful people. Nope, keep your eyes on Joe.
Scuzzbag Joe Paterno. He always seemed creepy and guilty on the sidelines. He KNEW to report the rapes to the police, but protected his own backside from penetration by truth and justice.
I found that odd too!
This is how the multi-culturalist Media throws a blanket over the whole incident. Like not showing the collapsing World Trade Center video when remembering the anniversary of 9-11. because it MIGHT offend a favored group.
The 2002 incident was a violent physical assault on that boy's mind & body. And if Sandusky had raped a female undergrad that is EXACTLY how they would be writing it.
LOL! Commentary from the modern day Sodom.
San Francisco, what a place..!
The local lib talk place is KGO 810 AM —one of the main lib talk show hosts was fired 2 years ago for CHILD MOLESTATION, and another flamboyantly homo host 3 years ago launched an obscenity-laced death-threat tirade against the life of Matt Drudge (he has been re-hired).
For SF 2b talking about RESPONSIBILITY is very, VERY rich.
SF enforces responsibility against STRAIGHT NORMAL people —gay guys can LITERALLY fellate one another in public or even PEE on each other.
I’m sorry, but no one who works at a Frisco newspaper has any right to talk about morality...
something in the same vain happened in the DC area a few years ago. A “popular” elementary school principal was murdered. It was then revealed he was killed after an encounter with someone from a “dating website”. It was then revealed it was a “same sex” dating website. It was then revealed he was killed by some young teenaged boys whom he met on the website.
NOBODY in the media put the facts together. They just reported on the vigil for the “popular figure” that had access to many young boys through his job and was trolling for gay underaged lovers online.
There is a fear to report the facts if they place a protected class in a poor light.
***All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.***
There were no good men - not a one!!!!
Graham Spanier needed to be gone a long time ago, and for many, many reasons including this one.
His liberal, moral relativist views created an environment where things like this were bound to happen, and likely were viewed as acceptable.
JoePa became culpable when he reported what he knew, but then did not react to the fact that Sandusky continued to hang around the football program. (in fact there is growing evidence that he has lied, claiming that there was some “wrestling” or “towel snapping” going on, when in reality McQuade’s grand jury testimony indicates he was told quite clearly what the deal was).
In my view McQuade should also be gone because he walked away from the shower and left the boy there to continue to be sodomized by Sandusky.
I’m lost. I thought this guy was a former assist. coach who was no longer employed at Penn., and was not associated any longer in coaching or with Paterno. That Paterno turned him in upon hearing the eye witness and that the creep was run off from officing some kid program there on campus. No? I figure Paterno turned the creep in, on time, and went back into the tunnel vision world of coaching. Are you saying he should have called the police on hear-say then? Guess I need to read more. A lesson for all of us. You may want to think it is handled and it isn’t.
Unfortunately, regular follow-up is usually required.
Even JoePa should know that well from experience.
