This whole thing sickens me, I am not sure why. I am neither a Penn State fan nor a Joe Pa fan, yet I am very ticked off by the way this whole thing went down. I think I can count on one hand the number of times I have heard Sandusky's name mentioned through all this. Meanwhile JoePa is getting ripped by every news market in the country. They took the man w/ the bigger name and brutelized him, villafied him, and drug his name through the mud. Joe Pa did not molest these kids it was Sandusky who did, why is it JoePa who is being disgraced. Then the school that Joe dedicated his life to, the school that Joe dedicated millions of dollars to, just up and fires him. They didn't even feel the need to call him into the meeting, they called him up and fired him over the #### phone. The whole reason is because "Joe did not do the moral thing", where was the morality in fireing him over the phone?
Then there is the guy who actually witnessed a ten year old lil boy being raped in the shower. All he did was run to his daddy, yet he remains on Penn States payroll, and will be on the sidelines at Saterday's game. He had first hand knowlege of what was going on, where JoePa only had second hand knowledge. Correct me if I'm wrong, but is not second hand knowledge usually considered hearsay in a court of law? Just sayin. I heard a news guy on HLN say last night that the guy who witnessed the shower rape was only a young kid himself like 21 22 years old, he probably couldn't believe what he was seeing, so it's not his fault. He gets a free pass for not doing anything I guess because of his age
In my opinion JoePa is the only person in this whole f%^ked up mess that did do the right thing. Yes there is more that he could have done morally, but he did do what was required of him by law. It was the officials in charge of the school who did nothing, who swept it under the rug.
I asked my friends on facebook yesterday, that if I saw a house on fire, called 911, then went about my day would i be considered a murderer if the people in the house died in the blaze. Every single one of my friends who replied said it would not have been my fault. None of them realized I was asking as part of a Penn State debate. I reminded them that morally I could have done more, I could have gone into the house and pulled the people out. They still agreed their deaths would not be my fault. So Why Then is Joe being crucified for his actions? Weather or not you agree w/ what he did at least he did something.
It is my opinion that the school is using JoePa as their scapegoat here. The way they cancelled his press conference on Tuesday, and the way they fired him w/out giving him a chance to speak for himself.
I think sadly JoePa will suffer the same fate as Charles Shultz. I think he will be dead w/in the next 30 days. Like Shultz dedicated who his life to the Peanuts, Joe dedicated his life to Penn State. Days after his last Peanuts comic was published Shultz was dead, and I think not being on the sidelines at a Penn State game will have the same effect on Joe. He dedicated his life to that team, and w/out the team in his life he will find no reason to continue living
