    im not playing the fair card though. Its also not fair for <font color="#0000ff">the guy who saw it because he has to make the decision on what to do. IMO, he made the wrong one.
    </font>
    It was reported to Joe as an employee under him, it happened on grounds - i hav eno isse with the protocal as long as its seen all the way through it wasn't

    [/quote]</p>


    oh absolutely, man....we're on the paterno thing because originally you had brought up that you were ticked that this was all falling on him, or however you worded it.</p>


    that second part though, is where our opinions differ, thats all...</p>[/quote]

    im just annoyed that it seems like Paterno is taking MORE heat than that guy. I mean at thee end of the day it was all stories to Joe Pa, he didn't see it happen that guy did

    Quite honestly....Paterno should have used his name power to do the right thing...

    Youre an AD...you gonna fire Joe Paterno? THE HELLYOUARE! lol......
    Nobody would fire Paterno for bringing this to light, hence why I feel it WASN'T handled right.</P>


    ok, I think I'm out of ways to continue discussing this. I played all my cards =P</P>


    [/quote]

    well by him telling the higher up he did bring it to light to the administration

    But I dont think he should of did more than that initially. Once it got wiped away, thats when i agree Joe Pa should of used his power to do the right thing
    [/quote]</P>


    Joe Paterno is the highest "higher up" there is at Penn State.</P>
    Get well soon 80.

    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.

    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.

    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]

    <u>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</u>

    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
    [/quote]totally irrelevant. totally. the wr coach would be a witness on the street. if this is a car accident the kids the one that got tboned.

    and how is that joe pa handled this "accordingly at first" but the wr coach didnt? the wr coach did the same thing as joe pa!!! he went to his supervisor!!
    [/quote]

    its not irrelevant at all. Once you witness a crime like that, you are involved. Thats the bottom line.


    Because who the **** goes to their supervisor aft4er seeing a kid raped? Joe Pa was a middle man who had allegations dropped on his lap.
    <u>
    The Coach was a wtiness in a crime. </u>
    [/quote]being a witness doesnt make you the perp, or just as guilty. at the end of the day we KNOW the wr coach told SOMEONE with enough power to do something about it.
    [/quote]

    when u witness a grown *** man raping a child and u do nothing to stop it or to even really report it - it makes u just as guilty. You let it happen.

    Its like your living the life of denial for him with these responses. Enough power? I didn't realize you couldn't be a WRs coach, but had to be a head coach of a college football team to report a rape...


    good to know
    [/quote]</p>


    Did I hear the reports wrong? I heard he reported it to Joe Paterno himself.</p>[/quote]

    no he did report to Paterno and PAterno reported it to the AD

    but who gives a ****. Why would he even go to Paterno?

    the real questions u should ask your self is:

    1) Why didn't he try to stop it?

    2) Why did he report it to Paterno and not the police?

    this wasn't some second hand story he heard, he saw this **** happen with his own eyes

    [/quote]IT IS totally irrelevant because a car accident isnt a crime. AND if he did witness the car accident he CAN leave if he likes, he doesnt have to stay around.

    I would after i round housed the perp to the face, and if joe didnt take action, then i would. we dont know what the wr coach was thinking or doing. for all we know he did intervene when he saw it happening,.
    [/quote]

    The car accidenbt example wasn't an example of a crime to a crime - it was an example of being involved with something that you don't want to be involved with. If your hit by another car, your involved with a car accident. If you see a child get raped with your own two eyes in front of your face, your involved.

    And thats my main point -<u> possibly the biggest villian in this case is the guy that saw it and didn't try ot stop it and didn't go to the police.</u> For the position he was in, going to your supervisor doesn't cut it.

    But if your Joe P, you didn't witness anything. You have a story dropped on your lap, you don't know if its true or not so you follow protocal and you make sure its seen through. He didn't make sure it was seen through and thats what makes him guilty. I can't kill him for not goin to the police right away.
    [/quote]i just cant agree with that and i think thats a major problem in this country. were focusing on someone other than the perp. whats the wr coach guilty of? we should be focusing on the perp.

    anyway the wr coach goes about this situation, hes screwed. go to the cops over the coachs head about an in school matter(of course i dont see it that way, but obviously penn state did), then joe losses all trust him and a media circus ensues, hed get fired.

    dont do anything, live in guilt forever

    and so he went to the coaches and now hell most likely still get fired.

    now his name will forever be connected to this, its not just a job, this is his career.
    do you not see how anything he does hes ****ed? the only thing hes guilty of is being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    don't fool yourself. The guy can't even speak a complete sentence. As much of a legend he is, theres also reports about him just being there for publicity and to be the figure of Penn State.

    No coach is greater than the administration that highers and fires him and he reports to.

    Botton liune is that he initially did the right thing and had the AD did what he was suppose to do, nobody would be second guessing Paterno for not going to the police right away. NOBODY

    Paterno became a scumbag one he realized nothing was done about it or was going to be done about it and he didn't care.

    anyway the wr coach goes about this situation, hes screwed. go to the cops over the coachs head about an in school matter(of course i dont see it that way, but obviously penn state did), then joe losses all trust him and a media circus ensues, hed get fired.

    dont do anything, live in guilt forever

    and so he went to the coaches and now hell most likely still get fired.

    now his name will forever be connected to this, its not just a job, this is his career.
    do you not see how anything he does hes ****ed? the only thing hes guilty of is being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
    [/quote]

    we're focused on the WR coach for not stopping it or deciding to make a real report of it. HE saw a kid get hurt and he wants to talk to Joe Pa? Lol REALLY

    Joe Pa can't even speak in complete sentences for the past 20 years. Hes a half year away from dementia.

    If he did the right thing right away, u think he would of been black balled for reporting a rape to the police?

    I think we live in a ****ed up world, but im not buying that one. I think most college football programs go by the motto of character, doing the right things, and standing up for what you believe. I think he would of been seen as a savior (until they realize that he let Sandusky get enough thrusts in to pop all over the little kid like he was a pornstar instead of going in and choking the old dirty **** out )

    if theres anybody that shouldn't of been on any type of protocal, it was this WR coach. ITs disturbing that he thought he should of gone to JP instead of the police

    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.

    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.

    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]

    <U>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</U>

    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
    [/quote]totally irrelevant. totally. the wr coach would be a witness on the street. if this is a car accident the kids the one that got tboned.

    and how is that joe pa handled this "accordingly at first" but the wr coach didnt? the wr coach did the same thing as joe pa!!! he went to his supervisor!!
    [/quote]

    its not irrelevant at all. Once you witness a crime like that, you are involved. Thats the bottom line.


    Because who the **** goes to their supervisor aft4er seeing a kid raped? Joe Pa was a middle man who had allegations dropped on his lap.
    <U>
    The Coach was a wtiness in a crime. </U>
    [/quote]being a witness doesnt make you the perp, or just as guilty. at the end of the day we KNOW the wr coach told SOMEONE with enough power to do something about it.
    [/quote]

    when u witness a grown *** man raping a child and u do nothing to stop it or to even really report it - it makes u just as guilty. You let it happen.

    Its like your living the life of denial for him with these responses. Enough power? I didn't realize you couldn't be a WRs coach, but had to be a head coach of a college football team to report a rape...


    good to know
    [/quote]</P>


    Did I hear the reports wrong? I heard he reported it to Joe Paterno himself.</P>


    [/quote]

    no he did report to Paterno and PAterno reported it to the AD

    but who gives a ****. Why would he even go to Paterno?

    the real questions u should ask your self is:

    1) Why didn't he try to stop it?

    2) Why did he report it to Paterno and not the police?

    this wasn't some second hand story he heard, he saw this **** happen with his own eyes
    [/quote]</P>


    Because Joe Paterno is the most important person at Penn State. Anyone there knows that. If he went straight to Joe Paterno himself, he showed a lot of guts.</P>


    And this happened many years ago as I understand. Joe Pa was much younger. I don't think you understand the significance of Joe Paterno at PSU. You make it sound like he's in some kind of middle management. "Reporting to higher ups" THERE IS NO FRIGGIN HIGHER UP THAN JOE PA.</P>


    How is it you don't get this.</P>
    Get well soon 80.

    [quote user="MattMeyerBud"]
    im just annoyed that it seems like Paterno is taking MORE heat than that guy. I mean at thee end of the day it was all stories to Joe Pa, he didn't see it happen that guy did
    [/quote]</P>


    No, I understand....but he's the name here....idk who the other guy really was. It's a media thing. Like i said earlier thought: in the eyes of the law, it won't Paterno taking all the heat.</P>

    [/quote]

    hes the guy that should of been to the police. How long did this case happen agian? Hes said nothing since then? He let Sandusky finish instead of stopping it from happening?

    oh but he told Joe P, ur right. What a guy. Joe has ZERO more power when it comes to the court of law. Infact seeing as how this guy is an eye witness, he actually has more power
