It’s really too bad Joe Paterno is dead. He deserved to live long enough to have his complicit ass dragged into the public square and scourged.
This bastard made little boys take one for the team anytime that pervert Sandusky wanted a little something.
Paterno concealed what Sandusky was doing and did nothing to stop it.
A scathing assessment of how head coach Joe Paterno and other top officials “concealed” the child sex abuse allegations against Jerry Sandusky for more than a decade is detailed for the first time today in the findings of Penn State’s internal investigation.
The 267-page report released this morning followed an eight-month investigation and focused heavily on Paterno, former athletic director Tim Curley, former vice president Gary Schultz, and former university president Graham Spanier. The report found after learning of the abuse, these leaders rewarded Sandusky with an unusual $168,000 payout and retirement perks without lifting a finger to reach out to his young victims, who were forced to perform sex acts and raped in showers at the college.
Now if that isn’t a glowing recommendation to sleep on coals in hell for eternity, I don’t know what is.
I don’t really know if there’s a hell. But if there is one, Burn Paterno, Burn.
I guess we will just have to double down on the deserved shaming of Schultz, Curley and Spanier and let them see how much fun it is to take one for the team. Or maybe we should just forgive them because they had such a good reason for allowing Sandusky to abuse children.
“The motivation (was) to avoid the consequences of bad publicity, and not just bad publicity, but what are the consequences? Other investigations, donors being upset, the university community being very upset, raising questions about what they themselves did in 1998,” Freeh said. “Bad publicity has consequences for the brand of Penn State, university, the reputation of coaches, the ability to do fundraising, it’s got huge implications.”
Do these men not make you want to hurl?
