As the verdict came down swiftly for the Penn State monster Jerry Sandusky, so turns another chapter for the Nittany Lions.
The authorities and higher ups with the University that were aware of the molestations committed by the former defensive coordinator for Penn state are now facing charges of lying to a grand jury, and could suffer serious jail time. A hearing has been set for July 11th for the former Penn State AD Tim Curley and former Vice President Gary Schultz.
According to NCAA President Mark Emmert, this could be the most serious infractions case in NCAA history. He went on the say that the NCAA would examine “Penn State’s exercise of institutional control.”
What assistant Mike McQueary saw was made clear to Patterno, Curley, and Shultz, and yet no authorities were notified. So what does this mean? That Penn State was willingly and knowingly protecting a child molester? That the success of the football program was more important than saving young boys from a subhuman like Sandusky?
By definition, that’s exactly the case. So how do you fix a program with loyalties like these?
Cease and desist.
The perfect punishment for a school with ties to protecting a child molester, who devoted his time to surrounding himself with young boys, whom he knowingly intended to rape and molest, is to shut it down.
