Joe Paterno’s excuses make me sick

He’d never heard of man rape? What the hell planet was he living on? Did he never turn on the TV or radio or read a newspaper other than the sports section? And it is bull crap that he was just of a different generation that did not know these things existed. The current generation did not suddenly produce perverts and all past generations had none of them.

Joe Paterno was told that a child was being molested. He told someone else and then went on with his life. Too bad the kids his staff member raped couldn’t do the same so easily.

Joe Paterno wanted to protect his lucrative job and continue to get all the adulation offered to him by people for whom sports and god exist on the same plane. He clearly was willing to look the other way in order to keep that going.

Shame on him. Shame. Shame. Shame.
