    Seriously.

    Melt any statues of this ******* down. Melt them down and make the Joe Pa apologists watch.

    As I said many times when the scandal was new, Penn State's football program should have been given the death penalty. Even the most broken moral code in the world recognizes that what SMU received the death penalty for -- impermissible benefits -- is a far lesser crime than the systematic cover up of child rape.

    The pseudo-religious shroud that Paterno and Penn State surrounded themselves with cannot help but remind any thinking person of the larger Catholic Church abuse scandal. In both cases the presumption of moral authority led to a desire to protect that image, even if it led to child rape. But where Cardinal Law -- the American architect of the cover up -- had to flee the country and the asylum given to him by the Vatican is one of the moral outrages of the last two decades, all that happened to Paterno was that he was fired. And then he died, only to be resurrected by the groveling, fanatical sheep of Happy Valley.

    I'm comforted by this: child rape will be in the first line of any sentence of any story written about Joe Paterno as long as his name is remembered. There is nothing Penn State fans can do about that. He and their stupid school have been linked forever to the worst crime in our culture.

    By the way, Joe Paterno's thick skulled son responded to this newest revelation.

    Oh, so what you're saying is that Joe Paterno would protect a more prominent coach suspected of abusing kids if Paterno's own kids were older? How about that.

    I can only hope that Paterno was in a lot of pain when he died. He deserved every bit of that disease.

    One day Joe Paterno's children will be forced to go in front of a microphone and declare to the world that their father knew this was going on -- on some level, to some degree -- and didn't do all that much to stop it. That will be a good day. Hopefully Jerry Sandusky is dead by then -- and if there is any justice at all he will have suffered -- but all the same Paterno's children will admit that what Sandusky did was only possible because the culture that had grown up around Rape State had grown so fetid that it made it possible to cover up literally any crime.

    "Jerry Sandusky", they'll say, "could have easily been a serial killer as a serial rapist. It would have been the same. The same forces would have covered it up, and for the same reasons."

    That's my dream, anyway. Either way Paterno's children know what every apologist knows: a) history has made its judgement, b) their task is therefore futile, and c) the life they'll spend opposing that judgement will be wasted.

    In effect Joe Paterno not only destroyed the lives of god knows how many children through inaction but he also destroyed the lives of his own children. Their lives have become about vindicating his. And it's a losing struggle.

    It bears noting that there's no reason to expect this to be the final act of the story. I'm sure Penn State fans have convinced themselves that each revelation would be the last... that they'd just have to swallow this last piece of **** to be able to go on and root for the Nittany Lions.

    Sorry, that's not the way these things work. The sphere of culpability in these cases only ever expands wider and wider until your head spins at the thought of even trying to rationalize it. The Catholic Church child rape scandal eventually found its way to every country with a significant Catholic presence on Earth. At this point the number of dioceses that have escaped suspicion is vastly outnumbered by those that have.

    That is how this will end. That is Penn State's legacy. If you can swallow this, Penn State fan, get ready. Brush those teeth. Another turd is headed your way. How many are you willing to choke down?

    More coming to light. While this victim was unable to prosecute Sandusky because of the statue of limitations, his story was apparently collaborated enough that he was included in the settlement with the school. The article depicts the attack in gruesome stomach churning detail, but the relevant part for this thread:

    http://www.cnn.com/2016/05/06/us/jerry-sandusky-victims-paterno-penn-state/

    True to form, Paterno's son apparently decided to not only question the victim's motive, but try to discredit the victims friends supported him:

    How come the next words out of that coach's mouth weren’t, “you wouldn’t believe what I just saw, I ****ed Jerry up and I’m going to the cops.” Did this dude witness rape then go and watch film?? What the ****?

    So...everyone should just be quiet about the child rape allegations out of deference to Joe Paterno. I see they've learned their lesson.

    Also a former Nittany Lions coach was found guilty by the law on top of the court of public opinion. 2 more will be convicted whenever the courts have had enough of their pretrial maneuvering. So you lose the benefit of the ****ing doubt.

    Its amazing. It really is. Every time, every single ****ing time, this school speaks up about this **** their complete and utter lack of moral compass shines through. Every time. Never fail.
    We. Dont. Give. A. ****. About. How. Hard. This. Is. For. Penn. State. The actual victims are whats important. They haven't been able to get justice, in no small part because of the schools backroom deals and outright squelching, so now the public holds it against the school.

    He is appalled... by the media.

    I'll say this for Barton, he's doing a great job representing the ****ty fans of that school. I was going through one of their message boards the other day and if I had a nickle for every time I read that it was "convenient" that the story came out now I could buy every piece of property in Happy Valley and burn it to the ground. Maybe 5% of the people on there had something approaching a realistic view of the situation. The rest are the kind of sycophantic mouth breathers you'd expect to see at a meeting of the Branch Davidians.

    1976. That means it might have gone on for 35 years. 35 years of that ****. And no one noticed. Or if anyone noticed they didn't say anything to law enforcement (or law enforcement did nothing) to Paterno or anyone else in authority.

    Penn State people who offer that theory don't know that it's scarcely better. What does it say about the kind of culture in which that could happen?

    You covered up and protected a known child molester for 35 years and are pissed off that the situation won't just go away. WTF sir, are you a moron? You should be thankful they didn't deal the university the death penalty and burn that den of iniquity to the ground. Politely go **** yourself.
