Penn State...what did Paterno know?

This story just keeps getting more bizarre.

So in 1998 (or 99, just as the first accusations against Sandusky wre coming out) the then county DA who would have been responsible for mounting a case against Sandusky & PSU went missing near a river outside of Happy Valley. His county laptop was discovered a month later, hard drive removed. He was never found.

The guy they replaced him with? This is from the PSU student newspaper:

In 1998, a mother reported Sandusky was with her son in a shower on campus. The incident was reviewed by University Police and then-University counsel Wendell Courtney.

Courtney was, and still is, the lawyer for The Second Mile (Sandusky's Foundation). Former Centre County District Attorney Ray Gricar decided there was not enough evidence to charge Sandusky after the incident.

Oh, it is bizarre, and revolting.

And if anyone thinks this is limited to 8 boys, they are crazy.

This guy was using PSU to funnel him boys since the frickin' late 70s.

It will only get more sordid.

Paterno didn't rape any little boys. Don't blame him for the crimes of others.

The whole thing is sick as f**k, and everyone needs to go. I don't believe for one second that Paterno is clean from all of this. How do you not go to cops, the least you can do is make sure someone does.

Yes, sad and disappointing. I am sure PA law is like most states....it does not say that you must report and suspicion of child abuse to your boss...but to the authorities...DSS and/or law enforcement.

OSU enabled this guy for years. Disgusting. Why...was he making money for the University? Hope everyone involved for letting this go on gets appropriate consequences. It is sad if it touches Paterno but does not sound good for him. He should have done more. Makes him partly responsible for any abuse that followed.

This is a landmark case. Great potential for protecting children. We are all responsible....a lesson everyone needs. More importantly...every child needs for all adults to learn

Paterno admitted he knew about it, and there's a Federal indictment just handed down after a four year investigation. What exactly do you think is going to be the end-game here? It's all a big misunderstanding?

Get your facts straight.

Paterno was told about an incident AFTER Sandusky was already gone from Penn State. He forwarded the information to the AD.

Should he have reported it to the police? Probably yes. But, he did report it.

To say that he covered anything up is ridiculous and totally inaccurate....based on the information that has been made public.

Now, my comments are based on the fact that there is no other evidence that Paterno knew anything. If (and that is a big if) he knew of this situation earlier and looked the other way.....then he should burn in hell for it.
