Penn State Takes Down Joe Paterno Statue

If you were overseas and had no access to any news that was going on in the United States, you got off the plane and overheard someone mention the Penn State Scandal.

You typed in Penn State Scandal in Google, you would think that Joe Paterno was the one who was molesting kids not Jerry Sandusky.

I am not excusing what Joe Paterno did, nor am I saying he shouldn’t have been fired, but to try to erase the 60 years of positive things he has done for the University is wrong in my opinion.

He made a huge mistake (even if legally he didn’t do anything wrong) and it cost him his job, but Penn State shouldn’t use him as a scapegoat when many others had a larger role in the cover up.

I am not surprised someone always has to take the fall, but I hope you the reader understands that Joe Paterno is a part of puzzle not the entire picture.


Come to find out the pic is a fake and the statue thankfully is still up.

    Instead of spreading unfounded rumors to see how many hits we can get on our website, let’s try working constructively, NOW, for the victims. One good way would be to go here:, and make a contribution and then spread the link around with the same notation. If these guys are guilty, the system will punish them, if not, a lot of people are going to look really stupid for spreading this vitriol and pompus, self righteousness all over the web.
