In a story today, the Legal Intelligencer points out the loophole through which Tim Curley and Gary SchultzPenn State's athletic director and former vice president of business and finance, respectivelywill likely try and escape prosecution on charges they failed to report allegations that Jerry Sandusky raped a boy in a university shower.

Were they mandatory reporters?
Penn State likely covered up for Sandusky because of his homosexuality.
FYI at the end of a link it takes you to a PA law site which discusses more in depth... Penn State Case to Test Failure-to-Report Law
Come back and talk to me when you’ve been here a full month.
They can quibble all they want, but in my opinion they are as bad or worse than the perp. They all had a moral obligation to report the predatory queer and they failed miserably!
Do you know what the statute of limitations is in PA for failure to report?
Here’s the Grand Jury report.
Penn State likely covered up for Sandusky because they were trying to protect the program from the sort of fallout they are now experiencing. Had this come out eight years ago, I think a lot of the same outrage and firings would have taken place then instead of now.
I agree. If Sandusky had raped a 15 girl, he would have been in jail that same damn day.
But with a Bisexual President in the White House, promoting homosexuality every chance he gets and attacking marriage between a man and a woman....well.....
I’m reposting a post from BlackElk in another thread. It changes the whole way I’m looking at this situation, also keeping in mind the Mark Madden rumors. In short, I wonder if the whole administration was in on a child sex ring and are forcing out Paterno unjustly, using him as a scapegoat.
Here’s what Black Elk posted:
I respectfully disagree. I would suggest that you obtain from Amazon a copy of the Franklin Coverup or Franklin County Coverup about behavior emanating out of Omaha, Nebraska that should curl your hair. It was written by a state senator who fled public life after initiating an investigation of abuse of young boys adjudged as delinquent and provided by state authorities as sex slaves to the utterly corrupt and well-connected (police, judges, politicians, elite businessmen, etc.) and culminating in the unpunished shotgun murders of the raped boys after they were past their, ummm, prime, so to speak. The perverts gathered to witness the murders. Nebraska! Not San Fransicko or Greenwich Village.
Just to speculate as to Penn State, which may or may not be as complicated a Gordian Knot of evil as Omaha back in the day:
1) Joe Paterno is the BIG name associated with Penn State. He is admired as an extremely successful football coach. He probably is not perfect.
2) Graham Spanier has long been president of Penn State University (16 years). He arrived in that position vowing to make Penn State University the “most ‘gay’ friendly campus in America.” Apparently he succeeded in that promise. According to Wikipedia, he was the third highest paid state university president in the US. He probably had a hand in the naming of trustees that was far heavier than Paterno’s. His doctorate was in sociology.
3) While Paterno is by far the bigger name in the general public, it is Spanier of whom the Board of Trustees would be far more protective. And, of course, just in case any members of the elite who serve on the board of trustees had a lavender taste for the anal regions of ten year old boys, the trustees would place a high priority ion protecting one another. People in their exalted position simply cannot be restrained by the laws that govern mere mortals who do not share their privileged status.
4) When Jerry Sandusky became a serious liability having practiced his perverted crimes against 10-year-olds in the shower room at the locker room at Penn State, he should have been separated from the victim as forcefully as necessary, beaten up for good measure and turned into the cops immediately upon discovery by the ironically named McQueary. In that event, there would have been no need for anyone to report TO Paterno much less any need for Paterno to report TO the police after hearing from McQueary’s father days after the event what McQueary had told his father at least a day after the event. Incredibly, McQueary has not been fired at least yet.
5) Instead, Sandusky was officially or unofficially fired some time after the 1998 incident. However, he was still given the run of the facilities for years afterwards. This was totally unconscionable on the part of the university and its officials.
6) Firing Paterno while firing Spanier guaranteed that the press and media would concentrate on Paterno and the quite expectable resulting student riots. Spanier gets to slip away somewhat anonymously by comparison.
7) No attention paid to Spanier means that Paterno’s firing also covers (CYA) for the trustees, elite wealthy contributors, perverted but connected political figures, etc.
8) Paterno is probably a quite decent fellow. I don’t know him personally and few, if any, here do. What is the likelihood that a now 84-year-old distinguished Italian gentleman who has been a revered role model for 61 years of coaching overall at Penn State and 46 years as head coach is actually a man who sympathizes with the anal rape of young boys by a major underling??? Call me biased but I don’t think so.
9) More likely, Paterno made a colossally stupid error (assuming that he actually knew the facts and believed them) in not going with the info to campus police authorities instead of supervising bureaucrats at the school who were “responsible” for supervising the school’s police. Paterno (even if the real reason for his firing is to deflect attention for privileged others) is paying the price for that colossal error of his own. He has always been a big boy and he is not complaining about his fate. Instead, he told the sympathetic students to root for the team against Nebraska in his absence and to please avoid actions against persons or property of the university or anyone else in his name or defense.
10) Joe Paterno may very well have been out of the loop on Sandusky’s “retirement.” You can bet that the university officials and the local police were quite in the loop.
11) Also, the very idea of a university police force with arrest powers but answerable only to university authorities, as exists on many campuses (including Yale and the University of Connecticut, as well) is an inherently corrupt arrangement allowing university officials to quash any “embarrassing” police investigations/actions having to do with: drugs, prostitution on campus, sexual assaults, misbehavior by officials or favored students, etc. etc., etc. NO INSTITUTION should be able to appropriate governmental police power unto itself without at least a well-used resort to quite independent public (not university) police authorities (state, local, county police or whatever).
And what a elitist childish response!
Thanks for reposting that.
I have no doubt that the homosexual mafia and Democrat political correctness are at the root of Penn State’s scandal.
Exactly. PSU is in University Park, with its own zip code, not technically State College, PA. If you're on campus and need a cop, it's the campus police you call, supervised by the culpable VP for business.
It's kind of like Ft. Marcy Park crimes being investigated by the Park Police.
If only Sandusky were a Catholic priest, they’d be all over him like...like...Sandusky on a ten-year-old.
You’re welcome. It’s completely changed the way I’ve been looking at the situation.
Is that for real? Did he really say that or is it what someone thinks?
I'm not sure. Do you know, BlackElk?
Did you see this?
