Looks like he got a full time coaching gig for keeping his mouth shut.

Like I said...he's not legally compelled under state law(to my knowlegde) to report the crime unless it was k-12. This is a civil matter and all any lawyer has to do is show this to the jury and bam...it's a won lawsuit.

The whole thing is terrible. I think Paterno is a genuinely good guy. But it's tough to understand what he could have been thinking with this. Sometimes, great people do not-so-great things, I guess. And it's going to cost him dearly, with his legacy.

I hope Sandusky spends what's left of his life in prison.

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

That's why the AD and the vice pres. of the University at the time just got indicted. Doesn't look like they'll go after JoePa, but the States Attorney had some not so nice things to say about his inaction on the matter.

IDK....Joe Pa didn't actually see the crime though, which is another issue.

I feel bad for Joe Paterno in that they are making him the face of this scandal. I mean, he clearly did wrong, but there were so many people besides himself that knew and none of them did the right thing.

This... Its been one of the very few remaining character programs so something like this is extremely stunning. I'm looking forward to when Joe can talk and I wish the University hadn't cancelled the press conference.

I think they were worried about sending an 83 year old man into that hornets nest alone. That said, the University President should have walked right out there and faced the bullets with him.

Based on the info in the grand jury testimony, he was informed that a felony had been committed. He should have immediately picked up the phone and called the police.

Are they going after the janitors from the prior incidents?

The report said the one that actually witnessed it has dementia and is living in a nursing home. Said he isn't mentally sound enough to testify.

Today is the first time I've read the details on this. I haven't really been following the story at all. I'm totally shocked that a guy like Paterno, who's entire career has been based on ethics, could fail so miserably in this instance.

All I know is I'm sure he's burning up wanting to tell his side of the story and I only HOPE it manages to justify the perceived inaction.

He has. He said he did what he was supposed to do.

Everyone involved in this matter should lose their jobs, IMO. JoePa is not going to jail, but he should face consequences as well by losing his job. The AD and the President at the time of the shower incident should face jail time, along with Sandusky who should get the maximum sentence allowable for his offenses.

Sounds like the Attorney General is not going to treat those involved lightly. Everyone is going to pay a price and JoePa's legacy is small price to pay compared to what those little boys got done to them. Nobody helped them.

NY Times is reporting that PSU officials are already trying to come up with JoePa's exit strategy. Looks like he may not even make it until the end of the season. Completely justified IMO.
