I have a few friends who still vehemently defend Paterno. To them I have 2 questions:
1. If YOUR son was abused by Sandusky, would you feel the same towards Paterno?
2. If at YOUR job, you found out that someone below you was abusing kids and YOU reported it to the authorities and they did nothing, would YOU continue to work there for years without saying anything else - just to protect your company's image and your own job????
I don't think it could explained any better Eich. I think it's criminal to keep quite when you know wrong stuff is going on.
