After reading the indictment of his assistant coach. It's obvious to me that the legend of college football chose to cover up the actions of a pedophile for his own gain. He should be in jail with his assistant.

Anyone who would do such a thing is no better than the sick bastard they protect. Joe needs to go.

First I've heard about this...

Fucking awful- although this is a "justice" shot of a monster going away (hopefully for good)

On a side note: Now 84, Paterno has been Penn State's head coach since 1966.

Why don't people want to retire? Putting aside finances, if you could afford it, wouldn't you retire today?

How did Joe cover it up when he was the one who voiced his concern to the proper authorities? It was the people of higher power that covered it up including the police. What could Paterno possibly do if the law wont do anything?

He should be arrested and so should anyone else who knew and did nothing. It's so shameful.

To the anon a couple of lines above:

Joe Paterno did not report anything to law enforcement officials. He told his boss, and when his boss did nothing, neither did he.

No one at Penn State told any law enforcement official that a heinous crime had been witnessed.
No one at Penn State made any effort to identify the boy involved, let alone investigate how he was doing.

So while the police determined that Joe Paterno had met his legal obligations to inform his bosses about what he knew, he failed on a moral obligation to ensure something was done about it when no one else was doing anything. In this way, he is complicit in the cover up, if not criminally complicit under law.

Just step back. If someone came to you and said your second-in-command was seen sodomizing a 10 year old boy whose hands were against a shower wall, can you imagine being satisfied with anything less than the picture Citizen posted above as quickly as fucking possible? And why didn't they? For some fidelity to the an image they've cultivated by playing a game?

Fry. All of them.

Unbelievable. Really. Sad way to end your career, but I think he has it coming.

Not to mention the shower incident with the young boy wasn't the only one witnessed by someone. The pedophile was caught doing other things with other kids for years. This was a total cover-up and those who were involved should all pay some time of price for the 8+ victims they know about. And you can bet there were a lot more than 8.
