Skip to comments.Disturbing e-mails could spell more trouble for Penn State official

With convicted serial child sex abuser Jerry Sandusky behind bars, new questions are surfacing about what Penn State officials knew about a 2001 incident involving the former assistant football coach's encounter with a boy in the shower -- and whether they covered up the incident. After the 2001 incident, Sandusky sexually abused other boys over the course of years until his arrest. CNN does not have the purported e-mails. However, the alleged contents were made available to CNN. The messages indicate former Penn State President Graham Spanier and two other former university officials knew they had a problem with Sandusky after a 2001 shower incident, but apparently first decided to handle it using a "humane" approach before contacting outside authorities whose job it is to investigate suspected abuse.

Spanier supports the queer agenda, which means he supports the pedophile agenda.
I could see the possibility of civil charges against the administrators for any incidents after the first time they were made aware of Sandusky's proclivities but there's likely enough plausible deniability built into their actions that proving guilt could be difficult.
I don't forsee anyone else doing jail time unless Sandusky had partners or a pedophile network. Some believe Sandusky was actually a procurer for other pedos and that the charity was simply a front for their operations.
Almost everyone focused on Joe Paterno as responsible for this scandal. But as I pointed out at the time, he reported the incident to his superiors, and it was those superiors who decided to sit on it and cover up.
In particular, it was the President of Penn State who authorized the coverup, at the athletic director’s urging. The buck stopped with him.
And, as I noticed at the time, one of that President’s announced policies when he took over was to push for more gay rights at Penn State. Well, I guess he did.
But as you can see from the comments, pro and con, the discussion immediately drifts to Paterno and the Catholic Church, although neither bears the responsibility for what happened. The idea seems to be to deflect responsibility from gay rights to Catholic priests, and so far it has been a pretty effective propaganda ploy.
They chose to protect a monster rather than innocent victims with their “humane” treatment.
What a disgrace.
Yes, it looks like all three will do a stretch in Club Penn or whatever they call it in PA. The notion that Curley was calling any shots is a rediculous. Curley was Joepa’s pool boy. Paterno and Spanier are the root of all this cover up.
How stupid. Paterno’s reputation is permanently tarnished.
Paterno is burning in hell right now.
Paterno had the obligation to report this to the police. Paterno accepted and enabled the crimes. His name should be removed from anything associated with the university, beginning with that awful statue.
Good points. Paterno was routinely attacked by the media...especially the sports media...when he was the only one who reported the abuses. His superiors knew about it, and failed to do anything.
Also, not only Paterno was attacked because the media wanted to defend a pro-homosexual administrator.....they were also keeping under wraps the Syracuse pedophile scandal....which ESPN sat on that info for years. Many of ESPN top reporters and announcers are Syracuse grads.
Paterno will be vindicated. The PSU admins and their attorney can’t cross-examine a dead guy....and many around PSU still support JoePa
State Penn works for me.
Penn State is a queer college....
Paterno was to report it to law enforcement....
To the same campus police and local State College police who had already covered up and refused to investigate previous Sandusky child-rapes?
In fact, since the incident in 2002 happened on campus...Paterno would have reported it to the PSU Campus Police...who were under the authority of the PSU President Spanier. Dirt...meet rug you are being swept under
This is the tired MSM cunard to try to hang JoePa....when he did probably the best thing he could...with the cops already covering for Sandusky
I don’t believe that they’ve been held accountable. If they knew about it and covered it up, that’s criminal and they should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
Penn States football program should be destroyed as an example to others. Padlock that facility for a decade at least.
Penn State needs to be razed to the ground and then nuked from orbit. Just to be sure.
BS! He (Paterno) reported this incident to his superiors; the very same people BTW who had just as much as a vested interest in keeping the scandal quiet and under wraps as he did. Follow the money and the overwhelming urge among all these men including Paterno to protect the reputation of the program at all costs. Even at the cost of those boys.
As someone who grew up in PA and a big Penn State fan and someone who once held Paterno in great respect, he dropped the ball on this big time.
I am a supervisor in my job. If one of my direct reports came to me with an eye witness account of a sexual assault in the workplace, especially the rape of a child, and I reported this to my supervisors and they then did absolutely nothing about it, how could I then continue to do nothing about it myself, allow the accused to continue to bring children into the facility, never question my superiors on the outcome of the investigation, help to keep it under wraps and act like nothing ever happened and simply wash my hands of it because I reported it to someone higher up on the corporate or university food chain.
Sanduskys predictions was not a great secret among those who were in a position to know about it but many of those people turned a blind eye and washed their hands of it. How many boys might have been saved from being molested if someone like Paterno stepped up and did the right thing instead of what was minimally required of him under procedure?
People should spit at the mention of Paterno’s name.
