SHAME AT PENN STATE

Disgusting. 

That's the only word that I think can describe the entire Penn State situation.  You can read the grand jury report online and I did.  But after a few pages I quit reading.  It was that disgusting.

There were at least two incidents that were actually witnessed.  Not hearsay but actually witnessed. At least one of the witnesses reported it to Paterno who in turn reported it to his boss the athletic director.  But no one from Penn State reported it to outside police and their only response was to bar Sandusky from bringing children into their facilities. 

The coach who did this was allowed to keep his office on-campus and was in the weight room as late as last week.  The abuse was apparently going on over 15 years.  This guy was an authority figure who used his position to take advantage of young boys.  And higher up authority figures did nothing to stop what he was doing except on their own campus.  Unbelievable.  Can you imagine what those young boys feel like today and how it affected their adult life?

I don't understand how the witnesses, Coach Paterno, the AD, the President of Penn State or anyone else who had knowledge of these incidents could not report it to the police.  For God's sake we are talking about sexually abusing children.  Except for murder I can't imagine much worse.

What the hell has happened to doing the right thing?  I pray that this entire situation was an aberration and is not reflective of our society as a whole.  God help us if it isn't.
