    THe coach who witnessed definantly should be fired, somebody should have stepped up and gone to the cops. Yes JoPa followed "[proper procedure" but he should have followed moral procedure. If that was his son or grandson molested you know shit would hit the fan, but since it was a bunch of kids he didn't personally know it wasn't as big of a deal. Sitting back while this whole thing was covered was just wrong. PERIOD.

    I take back any comment I wrote on behalf of this man. My boyfriend is saying he was the monsters boss. So now I feel when he found out about that incident which happened to be the second incident that was brought to his attention

    Coach Paterno did follow protocol, and reported it to the school, but when it was covered up by the school, he should have stepped up and done something then. I had so much respect for JoPa but I can't help but be disappointed. . . And these young fans angry at the victims for what has happened makes me sick.

    What are you taking about? He did what he was supposed to do, which is report it to the school. Sexual allegations by word of mouth is not something you want to bring up unless you are ready to bring charges, they should go after the school committee and trustees, I’m pretty sure once they dig a little bit more they will realize this is not the only school this monster has done this at. I understand the seriousness behind what happened to those little boys, but Jo wasn’t the one committing them. This school is going to have many scape goats. He never saw it being committed nor did any victims come to him. Someone who saw something told him and he went to the school and reported. Speculating that he knew more is unfair to him and his reputation, now the whole team has to suffer because of this monster and the school.
