Innocence of a crime and innocence of creating a protective culture are two different things. I'm arguing the latter absolutely existed among the otherwise unknowing community. And it is this culture that influenced Penn State's response to the crimes.
To have true closure requires prosecution of the criminals and a change from the the culture as it existed.
