This case extends well beyond the 1970s.

I agree. It was the culture. But that doesn't make him less of a piece of shit.

The quote he was responding to was allegedly spoken in the 1970s.

Joe Paterno Supporters Stress Joe Paterno Statue Never Knew About Child Sex Abuse
Well to be fair, when you look at how the statue was positioned relative to the children being raped, much like Paterno himself it was looking the other way.

Yet the football season continued to be more important to him for the next 35 years.

At least he admitted that there's a connection between his record and ignoring child rape, which puts him well ahead of most of his fans.

Penn State to 'commemorate' 50th anniversary of child abuse Joe Paterno's first game

Quote:
Penn State plans to “commemorate” the 50th anniversary of Joe Paterno’s first game as Nittany Lions head coach.

The news was revealed Thursday in a press release detailing the school’s “themed game days and promotions” for the upcoming season. The recognition for Paterno will take place on Sept. 17 when PSU hosts Temple. The game has also been dubbed “THON and Community Heroes Day” and “Faculty & Staff Day.” No other details were immediately available.

Other than brief glimpses of Paterno in various in-stadium hype videos, this will be the first acknowledgement of the coach by the program in Beaver Stadium since his last game as head coach on Oct. 29, 2011. Paterno, who joined the Penn State staff as an assistant in 1950 and became head coach in 1966, was fired by the university’s board of trustees on Nov. 9, 2011 — just days after the arrest of longtime PSU defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky for child sexual abuse.
Fuck this school.

The university never ceases to amaze me.

Re: tOfficial Penn State/Sandusky Scandal Thread

It's not like the university needs to be burned to the ground and have the ashes peed on, but they sure do regularly display an amazing lack of self-awareness. Or maybe that is giving them too much credit.

Re: tOfficial Penn State/Sandusky Scandal Thread

Thing is, they face a huge amount of internal and alumni pro-Joe pressure. Sort of puts them between a rock and a hard place. But you'd hope they'd have chosen the rock that doesn't abuse young boys, rather than the hard place that offers lots of money and support and looks the other way when it comes to those boys.

As if this couldn't get anymore fucked up, Sandusky's adopted son has been arrested on child sexual assault charges.

Sadly, being adopted makes it even more likely he was also a victim of Pedophile the Elder. He learned at the foot of the master.

Now, where did I leave my torch and pitchfork?

I'm so glad there's a Penn State in this world, so I can urge my kid to attend college ANYWHERE but there.

Re: tOfficial Penn State/Sandusky Scandal Thread

Because many men believe they are the Alpha and women do not have the right to say no. Whether it is based on societal, religious, or home life teachings, it is not as uncommon as it should be sadly.

"WTF, I bought her dinner?!?!"
"Fuck, Suck, or Walk Honey"
"Did you see what she was wearing?"
"Dude she was shitfaced and all over me!!!"

Ad nasuem.

Re: tOfficial Penn State/Sandusky Scandal Thread

It's still infuriating to revisit the details associated with the worst scandal ever. However, it is satisfying to see this university get the negative headline publicity they so richly deserve.
