The Daily Beast-Joe Paterno’s Troubling Attitude Toward Sex Charges

Quote
Paterno continued to a group of reporters: “Geez. I hope—thank God they don’t knock on my door, because I’d refer them to a couple of other rooms.”

Quote
Paterno added later: “That’s nobody’s business but mine. It’s not the fans’ business, and it’s not yours.” No one but Paterno, of course, knows whether what he had been told about Sandusky four years earlier crossed his mind.

Joe Paterno is a pervert.

It appears assistant Penn State football coach Mike McQueary is consulting with an attorney with the Harrisburg law firm Strokoff and Cowden.

All Centre County judges recuse themselves from Sandusky case

http://www.whptv.com/news/local/story/All-Centre-County-judges-recuse-themselves-from/adCvTpjIbkSWUZVuw4RMTg.cspx?rss=50


"The judges’ recusals are intended to avoid any appearance of conflict of interest due to real or perceived connections to the defendant, the Second Mile charity, or the Pennsylvania State University."
"We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and then bid the geldings to be fruitful."

C.S. Lewis

A community may possess all the necessary moral qualifications, in so high a degree, as to be capable of self-government under the most adverse circumstances; while, on the other hand, another may be so sunk in ignorance and vice, as to be incapable of forming a conception of liberty, or of living, even when most favored by circumstances, under any other than an absolute and despotic government.

It would appear that Mr McQueary has given Pedo State University ex Athletic Director and ex Vice President the ammunition to probably get themselves out of hot water.

Penn State officials go to court in abuse case

http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/story/2011-11-28/Penn-State-sex-abuse-perjury-hearing/51451554/1

"Lawyers for former athletic director Tim Curley and former senior vice president Gary Schultz are focusing on Michael McQueary's recent statements that appear to contradict grand jury testimony about a 2002 incident in which McQueary allegedly saw Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky rape a 10-year-old boy."

Making statements in an interview ain't quite the same as making statements on the witness stand.

On the witness stand, you can go to jail for perjury. In an interview with a journalist? No so much.

The first witness, Victim 4, makes things a bit difficult for Sandusky and his clueless attorney:

I recall a statement Sandusky made that was about as pathetic as Michael Jackson's cookies and milk, and it's all sweet and innocent.
There were only two options for gender. At last count there are at least 12, according to libs. By that standard, I'm a male lesbian.

I know Jerry Sanducky, and I met Joe Paterno on a couple of occasions. I also love Penn State. This whole ordeal just has me gut shot. I would never in a million years thought that Sandusky was like this. Him and his wife have always been nothing but kind and generous every time I talked to them (Of course, it's been years since I talked to him).

When this first came to light, I was saying that I don't want to jump to conclusions until all the facts come in and he gets a fair trial. I also said that I believe one or two victims coming forward, but not ten. Now after seeing the facts and what is coming out; I feel he is pretty much toast also.

His defense team is going to try and use the victims only came forward for money play. I don't think that is going to work for them. This whole thing has put one big scar on the town, the history, and school. It is pathetic, and I am glad they voted the board out. It is going to take a long time for the school to recover from this.

If Paterno knew anything--and it looks like he did--it overshadows everything good he ever did. He sure as hell is no hero, if that's the case.
Let nothing trouble you,
Let nothing frighten you. 
All things are passing;
God never changes.
Patience attains all that it strives for.
He who has God lacks nothing:
God alone suffices.

That is a possibility. But I am trying to look at it optimistically. They could turn this around and become the best university again; as long as they take this to their advantage and use it to correct all the wrong and put in place things that make it impossible to happen again. It will take a while, but it is possible, and has happen before. Then I could just be dreaming  :bawl:
