Just like every Mercedes Benz made by Nazi concentration camp labor, every Penn State football game since at least 1998 bears the touch of evil and every drunken yahoo tailgator screaming bloody murder about the ‘mistreatment’ of their beloved JoePa was and is, unwittingly or not, complicit in an unspeakable and unconscionable crime: the serial rape of children by the man who was being groomed to assume Joe Paterno’s throne and the cover-up that made it all possible.
JUDGE LOUIS FREEH, FORMER DIRECTOR, FBI: The most senior officials at Penn State University failed for more than a decade to take any steps to protect the children victimized by Jerry Sandusky, the longtime lieutenant to head football coach Joe Paterno, according to an independent investigation of the sex abuse scandal that rocked the university last fall. “Our most saddening and sobering finding is the total disregard for the safety and welfare of Sandusky’s child victims,” said Louis J. Freeh, the former federal judge and director of the F.B.I. who oversaw the investigation. “The most powerful men at Penn State failed to take any steps for 14 years to protect the children who Sandusky victimized.” MORE
