    As it stands the word abuse is a term that riles up the media into a frenzy, and should for the most part. I for one will keep tabs on this case as it goes though due process. Innocent until proven guilt is the American way. I guess I'm just an American that likes to give the benefit of the doubt until the whole story comes out in court.
    By all means if Joe broke the law, make him pay.
    If everything is true that has been said, then there are multiple failures on multiple people's heads. I don't think you can blame Joe for another man's crime.

    No one was more powerful than Paterno. In 2004 he resisted pressure by the Athletic Director and University President to retire. He should've alerted the police. And in doing so, He wouldn't be making an accusation but acting on information relayed to him...

    Apparently McQueary wasn't bothered too much by Sandusky's behavior. Less than three months after he witnessed the crime, on June 21, 2002, McQueary played in a celebrity golf tournament benefiting Sandusky�s charity, The Second Mile, according to citizensvoice.com.

    McQueary played in Sandusky's golf tournament again in 2003 and played in another flag football game with Sandusky coaching in April 2004.

    McQueray was the witness.

    McQueray needs to lose his job too.

    let them play-do not let them play. Either way the team is being punished for something that is not their fault. I would not want to be a player on the team right now.

    Dear Midvale: what is baseless about the 1st hand knowledge from an assistant coach to the head coach?

    Paterno did what he was "required" to do - so you say.

    Paterno never asked the "coach in waiting" about this incident? Really?

    It's pathetic that Paterno didn't call the police. Just as pathetic that Paterno didn't confront his pal about what he had heard. Horrible that ol' Joe told Sandusky that it was his 2nd Mile program or Penn St.

    But based on your process, a teacher should never call the police about possible child abuse even if another adult told that teacher that's what they saw in the school bathroom.

    Makes sense --- NOT!

    It was just a matter of time til the macho men with their twisted logic came out with their opinions on this tragedy.
    Of course, the games must go on! That's all that matters?

    A lot of speculation has gone on about this. If coach Joe told his superior that is what he was required to do. Think if you suspected a person of doing these deeds, but had no actual proof. What would you do? Make baseless allegation to the police, so if you were wrong you ruined someones life, and perhaps your own?
    Joe did what was he was supposed to do, he told those in charge.
    Lets wait until a court has determined guilt before coming to judgement.
    I doubt any of you folks judging the situation know more about it than the rest of us, which is only what the media told us.

    Perhaps it is only my perception but are those who reputedly knew something and did nothing substantial about it, being punished ahead of the actual perp?
