Joe Paterno Fired today...
« on: November 10, 2011, 12:38:29 AM »
I guess you either know about it or you don't.  If you watch Sportscenter at all or even follow sports in general I'm sure you've heard about the ordeal somewhat.  Pretty big stuff.  

Pretty disturbing stuff. 

Does Paterno deserve to be fired over this?  I don't know.  He reported what he had been told to the higher authorities... he could have called the police.  But if anyone was to call the police you would think it would be the person who actually saw it right? 

In the short term yeah, Paterno will have his legacy tarnished by this... we'll have to wait and see what unfolds to know if it will stick with him in such a large impact. 

Here is a link to the Grand Jury investigation... it's got some disturbing stuff.  But towards the beginning (page 6, victim 2) it involves Paterno, everything else is unrelated to Paterno as far as we know. 

It's horrible how this all happened and nothing was done to stop it.

the smiles aren't for the boys who were raped, but for the untouchables that are getting fired for not opening their mouths about the sicko that was working with them.

How about the guy that actually saw this happen... the eye witness only told his coach and superiors.  Did nothing beyond that.  And yet he still has a job with the team??  He didn't even attempt to stop the act from happening.  Just ran away and called his dad.  The person who should be in the most trouble for not acting is the actual eye witness in my opinion.  You saw the boy being raped, and yet just walked away?

This is fucked up in every way. I hope this dude gets a LONG time in prison. His fellow inmates WILL take turns making him their bitch.
This my BOOMSTICK!
