He's about to have his ass handed to him.

He should have retired ten years ago. Now, he goes out in disgrace.

It's a shame everything he build and work for will be stained with this incident

He should. When you know about someone on your staff molesting a 10 year old boy in the locker room, you call the police. You don't hand it off to administration to handle it internally.

HAHAHAHAHAHA! Child abuse jokes are hilarious!

Unsurprisingly as unfunny as every thought that has ever entered that waste of life's tiny, feeble brain.

You call the police on your job without passing it up the line to your supervision and you will create a real career ending or limiting situation

No, he is legally protected if he went to the proper authorities about this incident.

Quote:
Generally, any person who, in good faith, reports or causes a report to be made and cooperates with agency investigations and proceedings, shall have immunity from civil and criminal liability related to those actions, as provided by law (23 Pa. C.S. § 6318). A person required to report suspected child abuse is presumed to have acted in good faith.
On the other hand...

Quote:
A person required to report a case of suspected child abuse who willfully fails to do so may be subject to criminal prosecution. (23 Pa. C.S. § 6319)

Well he hasn't really been coaching. But to me this isn't about coaching or football, but about our duty to each other and he failed those kids along with others in the faculty. Disgrace is the right word. He'll be allowed to retire, but he's basically been fired.
All sorts of fun lawsuits are going to come out of this one, because any person ever been fired for cause at that University has a case of discrimination

Good to see. It's beyond naive to think it's ok to just tell your superiors and think that's enough.

Legally speaking he's not compelled to even report the crime. I would imagine that he's violated the code of conduct for the University and so did McQueary(sp), the current position coach, and the AD, and the anyone else that knew.

By not reporting what he knew to authorities he too hurt the very kids that looked up to his program.

Yeah, I was surprised by that but saw that apparently, legally, he's covered by reporting it. Obviously he's ok legally but, in terms of morally, it was absolutely the wrong decision.

He isn't facing jailtime but his tarnished legacy will tell us all what the right decision would have been. The sad part for Paterno is that he'll probably die before this all has a chance to blow over completely.

From everything I've read, he did precisely what the PSU code of conduct required him to do based off of the information he was given by the witness to the incident.

Well I haven't read it...and as hard as we would try we wouldn't find a 2002 copy. I'll bet if we read it, we'd find it.

I feel bad for him. Odds are he will be forced out then we will find out he didn't do anything wrong like Tressel.

And when he heard nothing came about it, what did he do then? Not sure of the timeline but did they just have the creep retire instead of taking it further? JoPa knew of the incident and should have demanded real action take place.
Have not seen it yet but I am going with it.

I don't know, maybe, assume the powers that be did their jobs, investigated and found no wrongdoing or not enough to bring charges?

Most states will criminally prosecute a failure to report a felony.
