A statue of former Penn State football coach, Joe Paterno, still stands outside Penn State's Beaver Stadium. But it might not be there for long. NCAA President Mark Emmert says he doesn't want to take 'anything off the table' - even the 'death penalty' for Penn State football if their investigation finds that the university has violated the organization's rules.
The Penn State report is more than a plan to reform a college football program or a university that failed to prevent sexual abuse of minors by Jerry Sandusky. Any institution dealing with kids will find the report useful in protecting children as innocent beings.
The Louis Freeh report condemns Joe Paterno and others at Penn State for covering up allegations of sexual abuse against Jerry Sandusky. Why did thoughtful adults turn a blind eye? They likely let their devotion to the institution take precedence over the suffering of individuals.
