[quote user="bigblue4417"][quote user="DavenIII"]TBH honest Lando you are scaring me a little, what if I told you some story in jest one day...one you just go run to the cops with it?
What if one of my Ex-Gf's had a vendetta against me and told you a completely untrue story about me...would you go running to the cops?
you seem a little bit insane here....you just believe everything everyone says to you immediately and are willing to ruin lives over it just because "it's the right thing to do" it's not that simple.
If you believe it...YES do it go to the cops, but remember it's just a story you are hearing.
if you SEE it...it's TOTALLY different...if you don't then follow through by reporting it then you are just a terrible person.
You are going a little overboard here Daven.
You know I'm a sensible person. Joe Pa took it sincere enough to pass it on to the AD. That tells you everything you need to know. He was concerned enough to pass it on, just not do what needed to be done because he knew it would ruin the program.
THEN - Still lets the guy have access to everything in the University and not question him or wonder what he is doing when he takes the kids down there. Think to himself that he is doing it again and he is still turning his back to it. Not only did anyone not say anything, they let it continue.
I completely agree. Joe Pa had a larger obligation. And I don't care if he's a mascot or not.</p>[/quote]
nobody had a bigger obligation tha nthe witness who:
A) Could of prevented the rape from continuing
B) calling the police to say what he witnessed. JP didn't witness it.
Holy **** Matt. No one is arguing that. We all believe you! It's the truth.
Once JP was told, he should have done something more than contacting the AD. Then after the AD did nothing he should have gone to the police himself.
His word holds more weight than anyone's.
