If he did then, yeah, he's a ****ing **** - but even if that is the case he faces no actual sanction here.
No, the ethical way to handle this is calling the ****ing police. What would he resign in protest of? Himself?

Lol at 90 year old Joe Paterno being allowed to name a successor. Not that Penn St is horrible but they're barely relevant these days because the old fart refuses to step down.

Telling the AD but not police is pretty weird imo.

Let's be serious, Paterno wasn't resigning until he got that record.

Resign in protest that the accusation had not been properly followed up on by his superiors. It was clearly the AD's decision whether to involve the police or not, but Paterno could have tried to force their hand in that regard.

Two Penn St figure heads lying under oath about the child molester is almost as bad. Going to be quite the shake up there.

How is it the AD's decision? If you worked at a Subway and one of your coworkers for the last 10 years was raping kids in the bathroom after hours you go to the police, not tell the manager and then absolve yourself of the whole situation.

Also, apparently some grad assistant and one of the kid's dads knew about this and they tell JoePa instead of the police? WTF is wrong with people? Is this old man really that big of an icon to people? He coaches ****ing football and hasn't even done a good job of that for like the last 20 years anyway.

Is it not correct? To put it another way, let's say you worked as a teacher in a school and you got a report from a parent who claimed to have caught one of your colleagues doing this sort of thing when they came to pick up their kid. Is your first call to the Principal of the school or the cops? I think it's the former, and it becomes their responsibility to escalate to the authorities.

Unless the law says different mind.

Now maybe you might call the police yourself if it became clear to you that the Principal was covering up the report...

Calling the police doesn't get the AD fired.

There's nothing wrong with me. He received a report, he didn't witness the act himself. Someone makes a report, it seems appropriate to move that report up to your boss - it would seem slightly inappropriate to get the police in and inform them after the fact, no?

Again, an accusation was presented to him, he couldn't have been sure as to its veracity.

How about this ****bag graduate assistant who walked in on a little kid being raped, and immediately left because he was "distraught." WTF. How about stopping it?

Re: So Bad It's Not LOL: Penn State Covers Up For a Pedophile

I don't get any of it. If I was on staff, I'd just resign. I couldn't ****ing be there.

And you know...contact the police no matter who's head I am going over. And maybe considering kicking the **** outta the guy.

OT: Does this mean PSU might be needing coaches next year? Where do I send a resume?

Working under Urban Meyer would be a pretty big boon for your resume.

Re: So Bad It's Not LOL: Penn State Covers Up For a Pedophile

The molestor is also 67 and started the kids charity in the 70s. No telling how many teens he fondled.

Not really sure how much fault is Joe Pas but regardless he needs to hurry up and resign ffs. Need some new energy in that program.

Pennsylvania law requires reporting of an eyewitness account of a sexual assault though.

How the **** do you see that and not report it? I don't care if I am a janitor making $25k/year and they offer me money to keep quiet. I will take their money and then tell authorities what I saw.
