Joe Paterno is quite possibly the greatest coach of all time. Now, at 85, his career ends with a whimper.
Apparently he knew that Jerry Sandusky was a perv and was knowledgeable about his escapades, but didn't let anyone else know.
It is a terrible shame that Joe Paterno's career ends in such a shameful way. Let this be a lesson to all of us. If we ever see someone behaving in a way that brings shame to us, we should ALWAYS speak up. Especially in a situation like this where an innocent was being harmed.
Though Joe Paterno isn't guilty of Jerry Sandusky's crimes, he is guilty of complicity and should be held liable.
If Jerry Sandusky is guilty of the alleged crimes, he should be executed. Crimes against children are an especially horrendous offense and should be met with an especiallly horrendous punisment.
