You can't use the lack of charges against a dead person as evidence of their innocence.

On the Internet....No.....in real life, where it really matters, lack of charges usually determines a persons innocence.

The statue NEEDS to go back up as Joe was the only one at PSU to actually do anything that could have put Sandusky away early.

But it shouldn't go up right now.

It needs to go up after the 3 administrators trials. 

THEN they can put Joe's statue back up and also put another statue on campus...one with the 3 administrators turning their heads away from a small boy.....those are the ones who really looked away AND tried to cover it up. 

FACT!

 

 

Joe could have gotten him tossed in jail at any point.  Either he chose to willfully ignore it or sweep it under the rug.

All I am trying to say is you cannot speak for anyone at the school. Pennsylvania State University did nothing wrong. 

 

Except for the whole "tolerated and enabled a child predator in their midst for a few decades" thing.

Proof?

 

The court transcripts and insurance records sure as hell indicate knowledge as far back as the 1970s on Paterno's part.

So, Joe was THE justice department of Centre County? I will add that to the list of everything else you people claim Joe was in charge of. 

There are people at PSU, and the Commonwealth, who did see Joe through a theocratic persona (Godlike). No doubt. But I find it kind of weird that people think Joe had some sort of command over EVERY aspect of daily life in Centre County. 

People at PSU worshiped Joe for what he did on the field...that was it. It sounds as if you actually think Joe WAS a god of some sort.

 

btw...nice hash tag...I'm sure that'll solve everything. ; )

Yeah, there is a reason why he isn't being charged, because he was the only one who did something. Other than the agencies who looked into allegations, and found nothing, Paterno was the one who, at the time he was told by McQueary, took McQueary to the people ( Spanier, Curly, and Schultz) who gave Sandusky his  current place at the university. McQueary told the 3 what was what and it was up to the 3 to take the next step....they didn't.

So, there is a reason why Spanier, Curly, and Schultz are on trial. As there is a reason why Paterno is NOT on trial. It's called evidence.

 

I'm not sure if its explicitly written in the Constitution, but the US justice system historically refrains from pursuing criminal cases against suspects who are known to be dead.  If it is, I guess its covered under "Cruel and unusual punishment" or either the 5th and 6th Amendments.

No, a few people, and agencies, "tolerated and enabled a child predator in their midst for a few decades". The university, as a whole, was unaware.

I'll put it this way...there's plenty of evidence that the  head football coach at any given P5 institution has a direct line to the county/city's criminal justice institutions (and has for decades)...with the most recent explicit example coming at Baylor.  While said line is typically used to get the players out of trouble, I don't think it is too much of a stretch to assume that it could be used TO TOSS AN ACCUSED CHILD MOLESTER INTO THE POKEY.

 

Also I'm pretty sure if Paterno said that Sandusky probably should be discouraged from returning to campus upon his quietly forced retirement, he would have been banned from campus without a second thought.

Well, it is par for the course. Liberal crusaders want to take away the 1st and 2nd Amendments, kill the unborn, give money to people who don't want to work, and give illegal immigrants all the benefits of the average John Q Public Taxpayer Esquire....Progressives is now a synonym for backwards.

You've gone off the G-ddamn rails, and once again proven how morally reprehensible you actually are.

That is being looked through at this very moment but as it stands right now there is nothing to indicate that Paterno had first hand knowledge of Sandusky's molestations until McQueary.

When said people and agencies include senior administrators and the football coach/university mascot/symbol, you can damn well rest assured that the university, as an institution, is culpable as hell.

No, I actually believe the "crap" I'm writing, but it is fun to see the heads explode when there is a person who doesn't subscribe to sjw group think.

 

I'm against superficial identitarian politics and you. Now what.

Of course, if you were trying to stage a cover up, there wouldn't be.  And because of the litigation access to Paterno's papers in the Penn State Archives is restricted.

 

That said, all of that circumstantial evidence in those depositions seems to be fairly damning.

So, you are in favor of those things....talk about morally reprehensible.

First off...no I'm not.

Secondly, you're morally reprehensible for assuming a difference of political opinion means someone wants to repeal part of the US Bill of Rights.

Finally, you're morally reprehensible for bringing that into a discussion about a man who enabled a child predator, and are trying to use said discussion to win political points.

Yeah, cause that's all they talked about at the university, in the classrooms, on the news, in the papers, on the street, in the bars, on the radio, in the car, at home, and in church was how great it was the Sandusky was doing the rumba with little boys and that they were getting away with it, AND winning football games. Right.

Im guessing you have never been to that part of Pennsylvania...have you?
