Greg B Obit: Penn State Coach Joe Paterno RIP (25) RE: Obit: Joe Paterno RIP 24 Jan 12


The grand jury report proves that he knew.

The passage of time and the fact that Sandusky was able to continue to offend proves that Paterno also knew that nothing was being done to stop the man and that Sandusky was still a danger to boys (i.e., he would have known if Sandusky had been arrested or if he had to leave his foundation).

As arguably THE most powerful person at Penn State and perhaps in the world of college football, his inaction was despicable.

Sorry, Jeri, but Paterno's passing and his downfall inextricably woven together by their proximity in time. You can't reflect on one without reflecting on the other. It only highlights the struggle to craft a balanced legacy for flawed individuals who nonetheless were leading members of their community.
