Penn State scandal
The family of Joe Paterno issued a statement in response to the famed coach’s statue being removed from outside Penn State’s Beaver Stadium.
A source told CBS News correspondent Armen Keteyian that Penn State will face “unprecedented” penalties when the NCAA announces what it called “corrective and punitive measures for The Pennsylvania State University”.
Veteran Penn State football coach Joe Paterno began talks that resulted in a sweetened retirement contract in the same month that he testified before a grand jury in the Jerry Sandusky sex-abuse case.
WWJ Legal Analyst and Talkradio 1270 morning show host Charlie Langton said Jerry Sandusky’s interview with NBC was “stupid, stupid, stupid.”
How long until we start tossing random members of the Penn State coaching staff into the river, just to see if they float?
Pittsburgh area writer and broadcaster Mark Madden reports that police may also be investigating Sandusky “pimping out young boys to rich Penn State donors.”
Shouldn’t we know all the facts before we load these people into the Tumbrils? Sandusky is in jail, and he will hurt no one else behind bars. Before we ruin anyone elses’ life and reputation.. shouldn’t we first make sure they deserve it?
Paterno said he was “absolutely devastated” by the case, in which his one-time heir apparent, Jerry Sandusky, has been charged with molesting eight boys.
Matt Millen, who played for both Paterno and Sandusky at Penn State, broke down when being interviewed about the scandal.
“Bad things happen…It could’ve happened anywhere, not just with any program, it just happened to happen at Penn State,” Barry Sanders told WWJ’s Ron Dewey.
