Paterno has come under fire and, according to the Times, citing two people briefed on the conversations with top school officials, could be fired within days or weeks for failing to involve the police when he learned of an eyewitness account from a graduation assistant coach who told him Sandusky assaulted a boy in 2002. Paterno at the time turned the information over to his superiors, but took no further action and said he did not know the explicit details or nature of Sanudsky’s encounter with the boy. The graduate assistant was identified by the Centre Daily Times as current wide receiver coach Mike McQuery, who played quarterback for the Nittany Lions while Sandusky was defensive coordinator. Sandusky retired in 1999 but reports say he had access to the school, its locker rooms and training facilities, privileges that hadn’t been denied even into his retirement until last week, according to Yahoo.com.

A quarterback, attracted by the noise, sees the assault and rape taking place and doesn’t immediately intervene?

Was he a past victim? Past witness? Unindicted co-conspirator?

What else can explain the delayed response?

Wouldn’t a normal person race in a punch the pervert’s lights out?

I wrote this last night. Listening to Imus, this morning, he cited Maureen Dowd excoriating Penn State.

Personal Foul at Penn State

Paterno was told about it the day after it happened by Mike McQueary, a graduate assistant coach who testified that he went into the locker room one Friday night and heard rhythmic slapping noises. He looked into the showers and saw a naked boy about 10 years old “with his hands up against the wall, being subjected to anal intercourse by a naked Sandusky,” according to the grand jury report.

It would appear to be the rare case of a pedophile caught in the act, and you’d think a graduate student would know enough to stop the rape and call the police. But McQueary, who was 28 years old at the time, was a serf in the powerfully paternal Paternoland. According to the report, he called his dad, went home and then the next day went to the coach’s house to tell him.

Totally unexplainable behavior!

Even then, if “Pappa Joe’s” image is to be believed, why didn’t he immediately call the police. Old-heimers?

It’s both a “personal foul” and an “institutional foul”.

I’ve long ragged on the NCAA and the NCAA schools as the modern plantation. More interested in “revenue” and image than caring for the slaves on their new type plantation.

At least major league baseball is honest with its minor leagues.

Time to break this cartel up. Root out ALL the abuse.

And, like the Catholic Church, nothing will get better until the evil is cauterized.

On Varney & Company, Former Judge Andrew Napolitano asserted that Joe Paterno is legally in the clear because he reported it to his superiors in Penn State.

<He was interrupted by an AP report that Joe will retire at the end of the season.>

Side kick babe, Tracy Byrnes as Mom, went nuts but he gave he the First Amendment and East German police argument, no obligation to report what people tell you. She wasn’t mollified, but I guess he’s right about that.

While Joe under that scenario, didn’t have an obligation to report. Clearly Mike McQuery did.

AND, let’s consider the “where there’s smoke” argument!

This can’t be the first time and what did Joe know and when did he know it?

If I was the Attorney General of PA or of the USA, I’d have my State Police or the FBI collecting papers and computers.

There has to be a smoking gun.

No one gets a “free pass” from a “proctology exam”.

Joe has reportedly released a statement.

http://philly.sbnation.com/penn-st-nittany-lions/2011/11/9/2549353/joe-paterno-retires-quotes-penn-state-scandal

“… At this moment the Board of Trustees should not spend a single minute discussing my status. They have far more important matters to address. I want to make this as easy for them as I possibly can. …”

Sorry, but I don’t buy it. If I was on the BoT, then I’d want to hear from Coach Joe and I’d have the Audit Committee taking under oath statements. I’d have all University property collected and all email and network logs frozen for forensic examination.

I’d also freeze accepting any “retirements”. No rat gets to abandon ship with a big payday. There should be consequences.

“… easy for them …” or is it easiest for Coach?
