PSU needs to suffer badly so this type of wanton disregard is never mimicked at another school.
I don't have a son so but I would imagine I would be irate if I had a son. I don't feel the need to make sweeping generalizations based upon information that I am assuming or information that I am trying to infer.
PSU needs to suffer badly. I guess we need to define who PSU actually is. Is PSU the janitor who sweeps the hallways on a nightly basis? Is PSU the student who is working two jobs in order to pay for their education? Is PSU the research department hoping to find a cure for the latest form of cancer? PSU does not need to nor deserve to suffer for this. The people involved in this atrocity need to suffer. Those people need to be held accountable for their actions. Those people need to be called onto the floor, taken to court, and be held accountable for their actions. Because the AD or school president decided to "hide" Sandusky doesn't mean the student or faculity, or other student athletes need to suffer. If your boss is a pedophile does that mean you should lose your job?
In society we want everyone punished. The idea isn't to punish the innocent its to punish the ones who are guilty of a crime. Sandusky was a monster and the people who looked the other way are being held accountable in the court of law. But the student body who is there to get an education or the student athletes who are currently enrolled in those respective athletics are innocent of any wrong doing and shouldn't be punished.
