Got to thank one of the message board alumni on this site for posting the grand jury report. http://www.freep.com/assets/freep/p
First...Technically and likely legally, Joe Paterno did what he was supposed to do and reported this 2002 incident to the proper authorities above him at the school. But upon further review and thought on my part I think not!
In 2002 Jerry Sandusky was no longer a coach. Yes he had access to the facilities but he was no longer on Joe Paterno's staff. So Joe followed a course of action that is mind boggling. A former coach that Joe Paterno knew had a history of bad behavior with minors was found by a member of Joe's coaching staff having sex or indecent conduct with an estimated to be 10 year old kid. Joe decides to elevate this up the chain of command and informs the President of the University. Multiple versions of the crime now are in question but at the end of the day no one called the police. All of them were familiar with the past behavior but they still did nothing. Everyone connected with those chain of events in 1994, 1998 and 2002 have to be gone and gone immediately. This is the sickest thing since the ongoing Catholic Church saga that has likely been going on for thousands of years.
