Paterno put his job infront of saving kids from being raped, it is by far the most disgusting situation i have ever read about in college football. Godbless those kids and shame on joepa for not calling the police right away, alot ppl have been telling me well joe followed protocol, and my response is, **** protocol in a situation like this, you do the right thing which is alert the authorities who will than assure you the safety of those kids and arrest the ones involved in the sexual abuse.
    This is coming from people who don't understand the difference between the legal aspect and the social one. So far, Joe did nothing illegal(from what we know). Penn State did nothing illegal by firing him either. You can't argue that because Joe followed legal protocol that he deserves to keep his job. That doesn't make much sense. What makes even less sense coming from the Paterno defenders is the fact Joe should be excused on these grounds. If he was as powerful as everyone says he is then he either knew or should have known what was going on. Can't have it both ways. At this point I'd say he would be lucky if no criminal charges are pressed at some point.

    Well, if it comes out that he purposely turned a blind eye to this he'll be charged. And he did hire a criminal defense lawyer, so who knows.

    It would make more sense for everyone to wait until the truth comes out before really making judgment
