Really? You think you might be capable of hearing that little boys are being raped and being okay with it? It's terrifying that people like you are allowed to run free.

Don't attempt to act like you know me by trying to judge my character. You sir are the one celebrating the death of a man that has given more to his community than most will in their life time.

All I'm saying is that it would be an extremely difficult situation to be in to hear, what was a rumor at the time, that your friend of 30 years was molesting children.

I certainly would hope that I would do more than what Joe did, but until you are put in that situation I don't believe there is a person here that can say for certain what their actions would be.

It is easier to have him on ignore. He's been on it for awhile for me.

Just got an ESPN text update saying he passed.

Rest in peace.

Would love to see the Board of Trustees at Penn State charged with murder, but that's just how I feel. :(

The whole thing is a tragedy. As much as Paterno did, what he did not do was his downfall.

The stress of the scandal may or may not have accelerated his death. But he was responsible for that, not the Board.

That being said....the death of anyone is a sad thing. A great loss for his family and all who loved him.

Unfortunately, Joe's fall from grace didn't come from what he did for the Penn State Community. It came from what he allowed to go on for many years in other communities where those young boys, who Sandusky molested, resides.

Joe's story is a sad story of a man who had power given to him on every level but did nothing with it when faced with a dark and dirty secret. His image and the image of the school meant more to him than the welfare of those young boys. Maybe it's because many of those kids actually didn't live in the Penn State University Community. And like everything else about this sordid story, what Sandusky was doing could easily be brushed under the carpet and ignored because many of those kids didn't even have a face or name. When Sandusky was finished with them, no one heard from them again.

Anyway, God has called Joe home, so he is the only one Joe has to now answer too when that time comes.

R.I.P Joe.
