I supported him and his version of facts throughout the Dodd Investigation up until that Aug 1989 Presser where he was announcing his acceptance of the lifetime ban. At that point I knew he was guilty and have supported his being barred from the Hall ever since.
If I see evidence that Paterno has hidden something I'll turn on him quicker than I did on Pete. I'm not even a Penn State fan.
Next time know what you're talking about before mouthing off on what's going on in my mind...
That was blatantly not accurate. Schultz was not chief of police. He was not a law enforcement officer at all. He was a bureaucrat.Just to be accurate, include that he told more than the AD. The chief of Campus Police was also informed
If we find out that Paterno had only this one meeting and never followed up with Curley or Schultz... Never said "Hey, I don't want this guy around our football program anymore. We need to take this guy's keys away from him. Something more must be done." Well, that makes him as culpable, from a moral standpoint, as Curley or Schultz. Sexual abuse of a child is not something I'd be comfortable passing the buck on.
When all is said and done more is said than done.
Here's a fun fact: Paterno was told that a boy was sexually molested in the shower in the locker room at Penn St by one of Paterno's long time friends and he was so concerned about it that he waited until Monday to tell his boss about it because he didn't want to interrupt anyone's weekend. He was very sorry that McQueary had to witness it though.....he was sorry for the boy too just not enough to call anyone right away...come on, he didn't know the boy. How concerned can a man be for a boy being raped when the boy is nameless and faceless. Thank God for Paterno that McQueary didn't step and find out who the boy was, whew that made it much easier to just push it back in the closet. I mean he's a damn legend, should child rape really be enough to tear down his life's work?

Fact: There were charges considered related to similar incidents in the current indictment that were dropped for reasons. Of course, now that more information is out, people are rightly looking at the 1998 non-indictment as fishy.
Fact: Despite the lack of an indictment, Paterno let his star assistant go for reasons that were made public. The known facts point to the inappropriate and potentially illegal behavior that his assistant was engaging in as the reason for dismissal.
Can't win with 'em
Can't win without 'em
If your intention is to differentiate between "boss" of police or chief, fine but since you gave no comment I had no idea what point you were trying to makeMcQueary said the two men appeared to take his report seriously and promised to "investigate (it) closely and follow up with me."
McQueary testified that he believed the two men because "in my mind it was like speaking to a DA (district attorney)." (McQueary stated this because he knew Schultz to be the boss of the university police). Four or five days later, McQueary received a telephone call from athletic director Curley "say(ing) they followed up and looked into it." McQueary testified that Curley informed him they'd "contacted the Second Mile (charity) and reported the incident. Told Jerry not to have kids around program or facility." McQueary also said, "I think they told me they took his keys away, but Iím not totally sure."
That's pretty urgent wouldn't you agree or are you sticking to your version of facts that he waited until Monday?
