I'm pissed at every single person that knew about this going on, it went on for years. In my opinion this is worse than murdering a person, atleast then they don't have to live with being violated by some sick psychotic pervert that fucked up their minds for ever. Honestly there is nothing they can do to justify what has been done, I don't care how old paterno was it's not like he was living in 1668 where you could stick your dick in anything and it didn't matter. Honestly if you had any idea of someone you knew, a co worker, friend, family member that was sexually abusing children, would you keep your mouth shut and move on with your daily life just cause you were afraid of tarnishing the program you are involved with? That is fucking sick.
If there is a slight way to justify this, it is absolutely called for to give the football program the death penalty.
