3. Call the police.

If the child's life is in danger it's ok to really disable the attacker.

Any questions?
Here in Texas it is legal to shoot a rapist caught raping anybody.

WOW... I can NOT believe this!! It makes alot of sense now... Thanks for the links.

It's truly abhorrent. The sad part is that there are only 8 witnesses, who knows how many countless children this man molested and raped.

The punishment does not fit the crime!!!!

They fire paterno (a slap on the wrist, this guy is on borrowed time, he should be criminally charged).

They fire the President (another slap on the wrist, he should be charged as well, as he had a legal obligation to report the abuse to the proper authorities)

Mcqueeary is set to coach, whereas should be fired as well; the two bozos Schulz and Curly casually step down; Sadistic gets $100k bail and he's walking around like nothing.

Same university personnel gets switched around and it's business as usual, heck, it just does not make sense, there's a huge cover up, hence, everyone and anyone involved must and should GO!

One thing I've been wondering about. What kind of atmosphere was there in the locker rooms that this coach could take a young boy into the showers and even think of doing it there? He must have felt pretty dang comfortable.

And McQueary shouldn't be out on the field Saturday. No way. He could have stopped a child rape. I'd be ashamed to show my face in public.

And to the students who rioted: Grow up and put all the energy into something productive. Like stopping child abuse. News flash: The victims are more important than Joe Paterno. If you want to protest something I'd urge you to protest the culture of corruption which just might be permeating your university.

Totally agree. I don't understand why he hasn't been fired.

By all accounts Sandusky was a regular visitor to the campus and the locker room over the last 8 years. What did McQueary think every time he saw him? Did he shake his hand? Give him a big hello? Or just walk away and pretend he didn't see him?

This really perplexes me as well.

But all that was thrown away by his not going further in exposing and stopping this abomination that was going on under his nose. BUT... he was not among those involved. And there may have been a legal cover up he was not aware of. Maybe he loved his program too much and couldn't see the necessity to see it tainted. That was wrong. Maybe he was getting senile. He did the wrong thing but there is a limit to what you can hold him accountable for.
But with all he's done and considering he wasn't involved and did at least do something, it was stupid on the part of the board of trustees to fire him like that. They should have fired him if he wouldn't voluntarily and immediately step down, but they should have given him the chance to step down and to reach out to the students who supported him. They could have avoided this riot and the further tarnishment of Penn State. I think the trustees should be the next to step down, they've shown they have poor judgement as much as anyone.
actually i agreed with this when i first heard about it.

there is nobody that knows less about this story than me but i have to say that as it develops further it seems that everybody knew more than they let on.

i mean if they had to pull a "special ice cream" off the shelves, there is something terribly wrong here.

what i don't understand (and perhaps someone can help me out with this) is how this was reported? didn't some of the victims' families know what was going on-why didn't they call the police in? were there settlements involved?

i think there need to be some prosecutions in light of what is coming out.
