Penn State Covers Up For a Pedophile: The Cult is Alive and Well

Seriously, this happened. Jerry Sandusky started a charity for kids, then had sex with them. Penn State's athletic department knew about it and not only didn't stop it, but their athletic director lied under oath about it.

This is as bad as it gets, and everyone involved needs to go. Sickening.

Below is a link to the Grand Jury document. Must-read for those trying to follow the story.

http://i.usatoday.net/sports/college...grand-jury.pdf

Good summary of the scandal:

Below is the radio interview everyone keeps citing. Must-listen all the way.

Article interviewing mothers of two of the victims:

Sandusky abuse timeline:

This one from the NY Times that is excellent

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

Worst part is that this started 15 years ago with the main story happening approximately 9 years ago. How do these sick minded people live with themselves knowing this is going on.

Hopefully, the charity was KARS for Kids. We can kill two birds with one stone.

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

I think you forgot to mention that this wasn't going on at his house, it was happening in the Penn State football showers. JoePa should pull an Uncle Leo and just act like he's old and confused, not like it would be much of a stretch

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

People have been wondering for years why Sandusky insisted on teaching the 4-point stance to safeties and cornerbacks.

I mean this has to be it for JoePa, right? 'I told the AD' is not even close to an acceptable defense.

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

How was the name of his book not mentioned?

Touched: The Jerry Sandusky Story

Like how Joe Pa just told the AD and went on about his business. How do you not tell the authorities about this sick **** molesting people on the Penn St campus.

Why on earth does this guy have his own book?? I can't wait until this blows up and ruins Penn State and Joe Pa's legacy. Absolutely horrific stuff in this report....

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

Well, it's obviously a complete and utter disgrace. I hope those involved see the inside of a cell for a period and are socially outcast for the rest of their days. However, I can't see how PSU Athletics can be affected by any of this aside from the inevitable significant Administrative turmoil.

Paterno seems to be in the clear. From what I've read, I guess one could argue that he should have followed up on his report - but he doesn't seem to have done anything illegal.

At least in Ohio, its not that big of a deal: they already associate the word "****hole" with "Sandusky."

Kidding you on what? Sandusky will have the key thrown away, but the others will get reduced sentences and be out after a couple of years because they didn't do the abusing. That may not be right, but it's what will happen.

Paterno hasn't been indicted in the Grand Jury report. He reported the accusation to the AD, and he hasn't been implicated any more than that. He's in the clear. Not following up on his report, resigning in protest, etc was probably wrong - but he hasn't done anything illegal.

I don't see how any of their teams can be banned / restricted from competition over this.

Don't remember which game but the announcers were talking about and they said "JoePa immediately reported to his superiors." LOL
JoePa told the AD but several weeks after he reported it, still nothing had happened to the guy and he just let it go. WTF?

Well, Sandusky wasn't even coaching there anymore when that happened. What should JoePa have done? Despite his stature, there are still internal rules he has to follow.

Oh OK, so we agree. He's not a criminal, just a heartless scumbag who stood idle while kids got raped. Cool.

As I said in the BigTen thread, Joe Pa wanted to name his successor and Curley wouldn't let him do that. So by sitting on this, knowing Curley hid it from the authorities, he ensured Curley would get fired. So now Paterno hopes to be able to name Jay as the next head coach.

Obviously this won't have any direct effect on PSU's day to day football operations. What it does is bring into question the integrity of the entire program and shows the things that go on in big time college athletics. If they'll cover up 10+ years of child molestation, what won't they cover up.

Can't wait to see ESPN's angle on this.... Would love if Bob Ley had a twitter.

Quite possibly - but we don't know at this point whether he did follow up on it unofficially and bring any sort of informal pressure to bear. From the information we have so far, it would seem that the ethical way to handle this would eventually involve resigning in protest, but you can't be sure on the basis of that information that he merely did the legal minimum.

If he did then, yeah, he's a ****ing **** - but even if that is the case he faces no actual sanction here.
