How about letting the presentation of evidence go forward in a court of law before you string up those you think had “peripheral knowledge”.
Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't realize you were one of those people who equates, "legal" with "moral." There may be some overlap, but they are not the same thing. As I don't have the power to try or sentence McQueery, I needn't worry about rendering a legally sufficient opinion. I can base a personal judgment based on my own morality, and for that, I'll go off of McQueery's own Grand Jury Testimony, in which he freely acknowledges having witnessed a grown man raping a child, and walking away from it.
Similarly, I'll form a personal judgment from Paterno's own statement that he, "should have done more". In that, all I'm doing is agreeing with Paterno.
