I know this has been discussed a little bit in the College Football 2011 Thread but I thought it deserved its own thread.
For all of you who are not familiar with the breaking scandal:
Jerry Sandusky is a former Penn State Football coach. He was part of a foundation called “The Second Mile” that was designed to help under privileged youth and he used that foundation as a way to take advantage of young boys.
Jerry Sandusky was caught sexually abusing young boys on more than one occasion IN THE PENN STATE FOOTBALL FACILITIES!
The Athletic Department covered it up and did not report it to the Authorities. Legendary college football coach Joe Paterno was told about it, reported it to the Athletic Director and left it at that.
So far 9 boys have forth and said that Jerry Sandusky sexually abused them over the course of 15 years.
Here is a copy of the Grand Jury Presentment. There are some VERY DISTURBING things listed in the report… it details quite a bit of disturbing details.
READ WITH CAUTION:
Penn State has held press conferences every tuesday for the past 46 years and conveniently canceled their press conference that was scheduled for this morning and Joe Paterno said he “had no idea why.”
Personally I cannot believe it. This has got to be the most shocking sports related story since the OJ trial.
I am absolutely disgusted by this whole story. Just wanted to get your thoughts and feelings about this whole thing?
