I knew that once the verdict was read, the next order of business were the Civil Suits for monetary damages, which in itself will be hard to collect unless there are book and film rights to cash in on.

Do you have a link or video to any of the recent news about the lengthy report, pretty much nailing many of the school administration and Paterno for ignoring and worse, covering it up?

Excerpts from the report on Penn State, Sandusky

Quote
Key excerpts from the investigation into the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal led by former federal judge and ex-FBI director Louis Freeh:

- "The most saddening finding by the Special Investigative Counsel is the total and consistent disregard by the most senior leaders at Penn State for the safety and welfare of Sandusky's victims."

- "Four of the most powerful people at The Pennsylvania State University - President Graham B. Spanier, Senior Vice President-Finance and Business Gary C. Schultz, Athletic Director Timothy M. Curley and Head Football Coach Joseph V. Paterno - failed to protect against a child sexual predator harming children for over a decade. These men concealed Sandusky's activities from the Board of Trustees, the University community and authorities."

- Spanier, Schultz, Paterno and Curley "repeatedly concealed critical facts" about Sandusky's abuse from authorities and others "in order to avoid the consequences of bad publicity... ."

- "Despite their knowledge of the criminal investigation of Sandusky, Spanier, Schultz, Paterno and Curley took no action to limit Sandusky's access to Penn State facilities or took any measures to protect children on their campuses."

"The special investigative counsel found no evidence to indicate that Sandusky's retirement was related to the police investigation of him in 1998."

Handwritten note, apparently from Paterno to Sandusky: "If there were no (Second) Mile, then I believe you ... probably could be the next Penn State FB coach. But you wanted the best of two worlds and I probably should have sat down with you six or seven years and said look Jerry, if you want to be head coach at Penn State, give up your association with the (Second) Mile and concentrate on nothing but your family and Penn State. ... You are too deeply involved in both."

and now this...

Corbett says PSU ‘cooperation incomplete’ in Sandusky investigation


Quote
HARRISBURG -- Penn State officials were less than cooperative with the child sex abuse investigation that now-Gov. Tom Corbett conducted when he was attorney general, the governor said Thursday.

Corbett said he was commenting after reading two-thirds of the Louis Freeh report criticizing PSU leaders for covering up an assistant coach's child sexual abuse.

The report that Freeh, the former FBI director, issued last week said Penn State’s former leadership -- including president Graham Spanier, football coach Joe Paterno, athletic director Tim Curley and vice president Gary Schultz –- covered up the child sex abuse of former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky for 14 years.

Joe Paterno Statue Removed

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mAPc3Eu9LIc

The Statue should be placed in the same cell that Sandusky will call home.

I was reading the comments on the painter who removed the halo from Paterno. Every comment said it was the right thing to do. More commented the whole mural should have been painted over.

NCAA comes down hard on Penn State

INDIANAPOLIS - The NCAA slammed Penn State for the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal Monday with an unprecedented series of penalties, including a $60 million fine and the loss of all the school's victories from 1998-2011, knocking Joe Paterno from his spot as major college football's winningest coach.

Other sanctions include a four-year ban on postseason games that will prevent Penn State from playing for the Big Ten title, the loss of 20 scholarships per year over four years and five years' probation. The NCAA also said that any current or incoming football players are free to immediately transfer and compete at another school.

NCAA President Mark Emmert announced the staggering sanctions at a news conference in Indianapolis. Though the NCAA stopped short of imposing the "death penalty" - shutting down the Nittany Lions' program completely. But the punishment is so severe, it's more like a slow-death penalty.

July 23: NBC’s Michael Isikoff and college football columnist Bruce Feldman discuss the sanctions against Penn State in the wake of the Sandusky scandal and how it will impact the school, football program and student-athletes.

Sandusky, a former Penn State defensive coordinator, was found guilty in June of sexually abusing young boys, sometimes on campus. An investigation commissioned by the school and released July 12 found that Paterno, who died in January, and several other top officials at Penn State stayed quiet for years about accusations against Sandusky.

Emmert fast-tracked penalties rather than go through the usual circuitous series of investigations and hearings. The NCAA said the $60 million is equivalent to the annual gross revenue of the football program. The money must be paid into an endowment for external programs preventing child sexual abuse or assisting victims and may not be used to fund such programs at Penn State.

"Football will never again be placed ahead of educating, nurturing and protecting young people," Emmert said.

By vacating 112 Penn State victories over a 14-year period, the sanctions cost Paterno 111 wins. Former Florida State coach Bobby Bowden will now hold the top spot in the NCAA record book with 377. Paterno, who was fired days after Sandusky was charged, will be credited with 298 wins.

The scholarship reductions mean that Penn State's roster will be capped at 65 scholarship players within a couple of seasons. The normal scholarship limit for major college football programs is 85. Playing with 20 less is crippling to a program that tries to compete at the highest level of the sport.

July 23: NCAA President Mark Emmert hands down penalties to Penn. State, including a four-year postseason ban and $60 million in fines.
Emmert had earlier said he had "never seen anything as egregious" as the horrific crimes of Sandusky and the cover-up by Paterno and others at the university, including former Penn State President Graham Spanier and athletic director Tim Curley.

The investigation headed by former FBI Director Louis Freeh said that Penn State officials kept what they knew from police and other authorities for years, enabling the abuse to go on.

There had been calls across the nation for Penn State to receive the "death penalty," and Emmert had not ruled out that possibility as late as last week - though Penn State did not fit the criteria for it. That punishment is for teams that commit a major violation while already being sanctioned.

Penn State has already agreed to not fight the sanctions.

Emmert said the university and the NCAA have signed a consent decree, essentially a pact signing off on the penalties.

"This case is obviously incredibly unprecedented in every aspect of it, as are these actions that we're taking today."

I applaud these fines and penalties. Penn State needs to be held accountable and this will give warning to any other schools about having second thoughts of covering up stuff if they one day find themselves in a similar situation.

Well, this is just insane...

Sandusky tries to get his Penn State pension back

Quote
HARRISBURG, Pa. — Jerry Sandusky described his career and retirement from Penn State by video link Tuesday as testimony began in a hearing into whether he can get back the retirement benefits he lost after being convicted of child molestation.

The proceeding at the headquarters of the State Employees' Retirement System in Harrisburg involves the pension he earned while working for decades as a Penn State assistant football coach.

From a prison in southwestern Pennsylvania, Sandusky began by describing his career at Penn State and talks with school administrators about a possible continuing role with the university around the time of his 1999 retirement. His wife, Dottie, was in the hearing room for a proceeding that could last several days.
