Fallout from allegations.

BlogHer Network

I’m sure you’ve heard about the troubling allegations coming out of Penn State. That Jerry Sandusky, an assistant coach, allegedly* sexually assaulted several children over the years- in Penn State properties. It was reported to college officials, and nothing was done to report the crime to police.

Joe Paterno, Penn State’s revered coach was involved (in that he reported it to someone at the college, not the police, almost a decade ago and nothing was done). He stated he’d retire at the end of the season, but was rightfully fired by the school.

Yes, rightfully. It doesn’t matter what a good coach you are on the football field- what sort of human being are you if you don’t go above and beyond for the children that had been harmed and those who might be harmed?
