Re: Incredible ugliness at Penn State
I think the conversation to break down isn't the one that should have happened with the police, but the one with the GA. The excuse that he didn't give all the details is an indictment in itself. The conversation that should have happened is one where Paterno pushes the GA for details and tries to get as much information as he can. If the GA was so shaken up by it, Paterno should have been there for GA and gone to the police together. Then all of a sudden, the police DO have someone who witnessed it.
If Paterno didn't try to find out exactly what happened from the GA, then to me that speaks volumes as to where his priorities were.
