Joe Paterno HAD to Be Fired
I am not clever enough to say anything that hasn’t already been said. Joe Paterno HAD to be fired for not doing enough to stop the terrible and brutal abuse done at the hands of Jerry Sandusky and he finally was. I don’t know how much Joe Paterno knew, I don’t know what Joe Paterno did to protect the victims, but whatever it was it was not NEARLY enough. I know Sandusky is yet to be tried for his crimes but if literally .1% of what he is accused of is true then he is a MONSTER. An evil predator that needs to be locked in a cage. Joe Paterno was by FAR the most influential person on that campus and should have done everything in his power to make sure that the savage was put away. He did the right thing for the better part of 61 years, BUT this mistake is too large and too disgusting to look past.
I initially thought it would be appropriate to let Paterno finish the season but I was wrong. I was dead wrong. At LEAST 20 kids innocence was stolen from them and for it to take 9+ years for that to come out is criminal. I just want 1 thing to NOT be swept away. Jerry Sandusky is out on bail! Sandusky right now is a FREE man. I don’t know how any of us can sleep at night knowing that that man is home. Joe Paterno will be punished for what he failed to do. Let’s make sure we do all we can to make sure that Sandusky and his heinous crimes are not EVER forgotten.
