Joe Paterno is Fired
All this concern about Joe Paterno and his illustrious 46 year career as head football coach at Penn State. All the accolades and what a wondeful man man he is. What about the victims who were as young as 7 and 8 years old? 7 and 8 years old. What about the 10 year old boy who was sodomized in the shower. No, Paterno didn't do it but he was told about it. OK, he reported it to his superior Great. But tell me how wonderful would he be to you if the 7, 8 and 10 year old that was molested/sodomized was YOUR son, grandson or brother? Would he still be so wondeful?
They say silence is consent and I agree. He knew about this for NINE--9--years and did nothing more than report it to his superior. I say he is equally guilty. He and all the Penn State administrators. the campus police, the local police and anyone else who knew and did nothing should be prosecuted to the nth degree.
