We all know the saying “When you see something, say something,” but it seems that Penn State’s legendary head coach Joe Paterno did not say enough regarding Jerry Sandusky’s alleged child abuse scandal. Although Paterno reported Sandusky to athletic director Tim Curley, it seems that his efforts stopped there. On Monday, Pennsylvania Attorney General Linda Kelly pointed out that the “officials and administrators to whom it was reported did not report the incident to law enforcement or to any child protection agency. Their inaction, likely, allowed a child predator to continue to victimize children for many, many years.”
In the state capital of Harrisburg, The Patriot-News ran a full front-page editorial calling for the end of Paterno’s time at Penn State.
