    Re: THEE GAME IS vs THE BUFFALO BILLS ON OCT 16th!

    I am no expert on this at all, but I think that under the law you don't have to report a crime if you see one and that includes child molestation. You do have to report it if you have a duty to do so, ie: schools, teachers, doctors, hospitals etc. I think that is what the difference is under the law. I for one would report it and stop it if I saw it. I think that is why only the school officials are on the hook. Not sure if the janitors are required to report it, it might be the people in authority. Just my two cents.

    [quote user="MattMeyerBud"]Why was it on Paterno at first? Thats my question to you.
    [/quote]</P>


    he should have no more or no lessresponsibility to it, that's all i know. The only reason he's taking all the heat right now is because Paterno IS Penn State. it's the only recognizable Penn state name. So that's what the media has to run with.
    Now....from a legal standpoint, that wont be how it works should anything come from this on him....
    Ya gotta let the legal system sort this **** out now that it's out. all the investigations now will put this all in perspective...and hopefully we will all learn the specifics later.</P>

    [quote user="JPizzack"]btw....Matt, in no way am I attacking you for what youre saying...I'm just saying i cant even look at it the same way. not in the slightest.[/quote]

    The person who SAW it take place should have stopped it there, at the very least that person should have made it his #1) priority in life from that point forward to make sure this ******* got sent away.

    Paterno on the other hand...he's hearing a "story" from someone most likely about someone he trusted...I can see why Paterno would only go so far as to report it and not follow through to the extent that the person who SAW the act would.

    Hypothetical....

    Say you had a cleaning lady and you were sharing an apparently with a family member say a brother, and the cleaning lady tells you he saw your brother with a young boy in the shower...

    you are running immediately to the cops? I wouldn't, I would certainly question my brother about it, but I would be HIGHLY skeptical of the Cleaning Lady who I barely know..

    Daven, wouldnt this be an example of protection under the whole good samaritan laws?[/quote]</P>



    </P>


    In my experience nothing is black and white, you can use the good samaritan law to support your claim that you did nothing wrong...but that doesn't pay you're legal fee's if the opposing party decides to go after you.

    i dont know...
    I mean i would understand that people are concerned for their jobs, but the seriousness of the situation? cmon...
    if you got fired over something like that? that's wrongful termination, and then everything goes to the courts anyway....investigations, and someone's going down for the crimes if they happened. There is no debate in my book.

    What I dont understand is why Matt is saying the wr coach, and Paterno did the right thing by reporting it to school officials. Why is it a business decision? Why was that the right thing at all? i dont even get that...

    WHAT IN THE **** does the school have to do child molestation allegations??!?!
    WHO IN THE **** does someone think they are to make a "judgement call" on this kind of thing?!?!
    Everyone from the guy who saw, paterno who made a bad call and only escalating it to his higher up, the AD for doing nothing upon hearing it, and the janitor for escalating it and also not reporting it....they are all guilty of withholding this from the police. like, i cant even see this any other way. You dont go to the cops? then youre withholding information. What in gods name makes it the AD's responsibility, moreso than it was the 2 people under him who knew the same information?!!? They are humans! they are bound by the law all the same. </P>


    [/quote]

    well like I said before why was it even brough to Paterno? It was brought becuase this guy was notifying his boss. Theres just a protocal to inform the top people of situations like that so they can know. Where Joe dropped the ball was letting it just go away. He did what he was suppose to at first, but after nothing happened he should of pressed the issue or gone to the police himself

    But not for nothing it wasn't Joe's place to go to the cops. He didn't see it, hes not the one that should notify the authorities on behalf of Penn State. He morally **** the bed by forgetting about it.

    Your asking what the school has to do with it, well it was put through the process once the guy who saw it happen went to PAterno.

    Why was it on Paterno at first? Thats my question to you.

    Protocol?</P>


    **** that, a bunch of kids got molested by some sick pervert.</P>


    The police should have been notified the second that pos McQueary caught Sandusky in the showers molesting that poor kid. </P>


    For an ivy league, there a bunch of idiots over there. When did common sence fly out the window? Call the Police!!! A crime was commited...</P>

    another guy HEARD it happened.
    [/quote]</p>


    dude you STILL have to report it!</p>


    not only because it's unethical to not do so, but because it's you no longer have plausible deniability, therefore it's illegal to withhold that information.</p>[/quote]

    Well thats actually factually not true. If this was done in a business setting and this was an official report at work (which I think it was) then Joe Pa followed protocal at the time. Joe Pa went wrong by letting it slip through the cracks.

    But at the time, its not Joe Pa's place to report it to the cops officially. Thats why he will be cleared. He did he what he was suppose to do. But again as a human being, he did wrong

    But either way, it goes back to the guy WHO SAW THE RAPE HAPPEN! HE went to his superior? Hes the guy that should of been on his cell calling 911
    [/quote]if the wr coach DID go to a superior, he really didnt do anything wrong imo. could he have done more? yea but you cant fault him for it. this isnt a normal situation.
    [/quote]
    You can't fault him for not doing more!?!? This is getting unreal you guys. Exacty! It isn't a normal situation, which is exactly why everyone should have gone to the police.
    [/quote]listen, its easy to sit here and say what we all would have done but we dont know the individuals. if im a wr coach, i hear/see this atrocious act, what do i do? do i go over my coach and straight to the police which could get me fired? do i go over my coach and go to the dean who may think im nuts with no proof which could also get me fired? or do i go to coach whos been here forever and let him go to the dean.

    im sorry but i most likely would have done the same thing.
    [/quote]

    no offense, <u>i think if u see that and the first thought in your mind is your job then your a scumbag.</u> Thats the one truth I think I could say 100% definitly. If I saw it with my own two eyes, I would go over there and try to stop it and then report it, zero doubt in my mind
    [/quote] its easy to say without a kid and family to support.
    [/quote]

    no its easy to say whenever

    money isn't everything dezz. We're not talking about stealing a pack of twizzlers from 7-11 we're talking about a 12 year old kid having some 60 year old guy stick a **** in his *** against his will

    That will never be a decision in my life on whats more important
    [/quote]like i said we dont know any of these individuals. and youre not a scumbag if you dont want to get involved in a certain situation and its not like wr coach kept it to himself. he went and told the head coach, who lets be honest, has more pull in the school. maybe the wr coach felt he could handle it better or know what to do. wr coach is innocent.
    [/quote]

    yea i dont want to get involved in a car accident, but if some ****** TBones me at a cross section on my way home from work, i'm involved

    Theres nothing this guy could do, hes involved against his will. Sometimes **** drops on your lap. I would judge anybody who didn't feel the need to stop a rape or do something to make sure that the scumbag got his.

    On the level of the guy who saw it happen - who the g**** cares if he went to the head coach. Joe Paterno is the god of Penn State, not God. This may of happened AT Penn State with a Penn STate employee, but this isn't a Penn State matter.

    IT became one when this guy decided to tell Joe Pa instead of the police, Joe Pa handled accordingly at first. Either way, this guy saw it happen and its incredible to me that you could say that he wa slooking out for his job and that makes it okay

    a) yes protocal. Its an allegation. Joe Pa didn't see it himself. For all he knows this guy could be ****ing crazy or have some personal vendetta against Sandusky and it could all be completely false. He went to his superiors, the people that ultimately make these decisions and notify the police and NCAA. And your talking in hindsight, put urself in the moment

    b) I agree and I put that on the witness. Why he chose Joe Pa as a better person to bring this to than the police is beyond me. Thats what i've been trying to say, that guy is basically just as bad a Sandusky.

    C) A crime was alledgedly committed. And when something like this happens the protocal is that it keeps being reported to the person above until the top guy has it and then they collectively notify the cops or FBI or whatever. Joe PA initially did the right thing. When nothing happened and it was swept under the rug - THATS where he **** the bed.
