I cannot imagine anyone who would hear a story about a child being molested not wanting to ensure that the story was fully investigated by the proper authorities. I am sorry Joe, but telling the school about a potential crime fails the sniff test. Granted, we don’t have all the facts about this case, but it appears to me that Paterno looked the other way. Isn’t that what got us into this financial mess we’re in – people who made decisions that somehow seemed to meet the letter of the law, but not necessarily the spirit? It goes to show you how quickly humans can bury their conscience when we are too invested in a system that serves us too well.
