    your not being sensible with this at all though.

    Joe Pa did what he is suppose to do as an employee of Penn State. He played it by the books. It wasn't that he was concerned enough it was that when something like that is reported to you its your job to report it to those above you.

    It wans't his place to call the cops and its a very logical situation. Your arguing these points wtih all the knowldge you have right now, not what JP had at the time. Hence why your not being sensible, your being emotional.

I don't get it[/quote]I hear that and I feel that right in my gut, but similar to our death penalty discussions doesn't there need to be more direct liability on Paterno's part in order to be fired. Unless of course they are just taking a complete cover up or conspiracy viewpoint and anyone involved in any manner , large or small is being dismissed.

    absolutely, i still say he should of called the cops right away. He wasn't a witness. Again, like i've continued to say in probably about 50 posts yesterday (hence why I know u don't actually read everything) is that once he realized the AD was doing nothing he should have stepped up. Because he didn't - thats why he deserves to be fired and thrown in this whole thing

    AGain something i've now said 60 times: Saying he should of called the police right away is an emotional response with hindsight 20/20

    your right, technically he followed the chain of command - but morally they got rid of him and I have no issue with that at all
    [/quote]Yes- I was waiting for that. I see two sides for Joe:

    Acting in accordance with the procedures of his job

    and

    Morally--I already stated yesterday how I would not of allowed something like that to occur and continue, but that's me personally. This is the area where Joe failed.....but does that warrant being fired? The emotion and pain that these children suffered has to be removed from the equation in order to answer that objectively.

    lol me and u are on the same page with this i think...

    [/quote]

    who was the other person? Only thing I've read was that McQueury brought it to his attention?

    If your referencing the janitor, he went to HIS superior and apparently it died there

    I just hate the fact that u guys are caught up on Paterno instead of actually getting to the source of this issue. I just think that your killing Joe Paterno cuz of his name. In this case while JP SHOULD be fired, out of all the list of characters he is the LAST person you should be talking about.

    Why aren't you talking about the janitor who didn't choose to fill out the paper work or report it to the place? Why aren't you talking about the janitor's boss who didn't want to get involved because he was afraid of his job? Why aren't you talking about the other janitors who apparently the original guy discussed with what he saw? Why aren't you talking about McQeaury- the guy who saw the rape and didn't stop it and then felt it necessary to ONLY tell HIS superior?? Why aren't you talking about the other assistant coaches he conferred with before going to Paterno?

    I'm not giving Paterno a pass at all but im sick of people pinning it on him, at least he passed it on to his higher ups. That doesn't cut it for McQueary - it wasn't just something he heard. He saw that **** with his own two eyes

    Sorry but McQueary still has a job and he witnessed the rape, didn't stop it, and never brought it to the police. I don't care how much Joe Paterno means to Penn St, thats not good enough. In my eyes, hes as bad as Sandusky. Anybody that has the chance to stop somebody raping a child and does nothing is just as much of a scumbag. Oh but wait, he was worried about his job - thats a good reason to lay off him. But when something hearsay drops on Paternos lap, he should of just took no precaution and went to war with it.

    There are two hypothetical truths about this whole situation. If the only thing Joe Pa did was bring it to the AD and

    1) The AD did his job with it and didn't try to cover it up, NOBODY would be giving Joe Pa **** for following the chain of command. He actually would of been commended.

    2) Had the AD did what he did, Joe Pa recognzied it and didn't let it go to bed or did something to bring this whole case back to life (Which is what he should of did) nobody would be looking to hang Joe Pa or have any knocks on him

    Bottom line to say he should of went to the cops right away with a hearsay story of something that he can't confirm or deny is an emotional response with hindsight 20/20. Thats my only stance on Joe Pa

    <FONT color=#0000ff>I just hate the fact that people are making him to be the biggest villian and making him the public scapegoat.</FONT> Let the media do that, but while we're having discussions realize the situation and don't just follow what outraged parents and people trying to sell the news are saying
    [/quote]</P>


    Read the indictment.</P>


    http://www.scribd.com/doc/72104007/Sandusky-Indictment</P>


    He's not a scapegoat, but he is involved. </P>


    He did not commit the crime, but he did as minimal as possible for the situation. </P>


    You keep making it out that he did what he had to do, well guess what. He did not!!!</P>


    He choose to tell the information to his superiors, ok fine, then that's it. The situation got swept under the rug. He's a ****ing parent (Joe Paterno) He did not think for a second "hey maybe I should notify the authorities and get this situation brought to light" </P>


    If it turns out it was just hear say then it's moved on, but if they find out there was rape and molestation going on they could have prevented it and kept future children from getting hurt. </P>

    im sorry but u could of done a different kind of damage and effect alot of peoples lives to wrecklessly just go and bring it to the police off of just one mans word. What if this one man was lying? Couldn't it of been true that this guy had some other agenda to **** over Sandusky and he was trying to **** him over?

    AGain initially Joe Pa played it right, letting it get forgotten is where he scumbagged out in my opinion.

    You are generally a very insightful and thoughtful poster. This comment is not a good example of that.</p>

    the fact that u suggest that in this instance Joe Pa had anymore type of power or pull with reporting a rape case is dilusional

    You are suggesting that Joe Paterno doesn't have any more influence at PSU than any other citizen?</p>


    I'm delusional? </p>

    what the **** does PSU have to do wtih this?!

    Why do u care how PSU would of handled this?!

    What power does Joe Paterno have over me or you when it comes to the law?

    Well I assume that PSU has its own police force. I know UMass does. And either way, the majority of the population there are PSU students and staff. they have to work very closely with the university.</p>


    But thats not even the point. he continued his relationship with Sanduski as if he knew nothing.</p>[/quote]

    reach much? Get your mindset off of the fact that this happened at PSU so it somehow trumps real law. Im sure it has its own police force, ALOT of colleges do - but something as serious as a rape would def go beyond the school police force. This isn't a simple B&amp;E into a car to steal a wallet pappy
    Fear the name, appreciate the game
