Here Is The Official Report Of Louis Freeh’s Investigation Into Penn State
Deadspin ^ | July 12, 2012 | Dom Cosentino

Posted on 07/12/2012 6:12:38 AM PDT by John W

II. Findings

Our most saddening and sobering finding is the total disregard for the safety and welfare of Sandusky’s child victims by the most senior leaders at Penn State.

The most powerful men at Penn State failed to take any steps for 14 years to protect the children who Sandusky victimized.

Messrs. Spanier, Schultz, Paterno and Curley never demonstrated, through actions or words, any concern for the safety and well-being of Sandusky’s victims until after Sandusky’s arrest.

In 1985 I met one of the greatest running backs in Penn State history. Being a hugs college football fan I told him Paterno was my favorite coach. He said “he’s not the guy you think he is.” I wonder what he meant?

Let this be “JoePat”’s legacy: providing unrestricted access to young boys.

NPR was all over this on my commute. I changed the channel as I thought to myself? Why are you so breathless about an investigation into a guy molesting a few boys over decades at one of thousands of schools in a state far removed from mine?

More importantly, why do you think I would waste my limited time learning about that when there are things that actually MATTER to me and can impact me directly going on in other places in the country and the world.

But the other station was playing one of my favorite oldies, so it’s all good.

I have a somewhat different view of things. Personally I think learning about what amounts to an organized conspiracy to cover up the rape of dozens of children over a period of decades perpetrated by one of the most "respected" colleges in America impacts my life somewhat.

Maybe that's because I have a kid who will be of "college age" soon.

Yeah, my kids are out of college now. ;)

My point is not that it should not be covered but, rather, that it is a “page 10” type of story.

SERIOUS stuff is going on all over the world that can and will affect us ALL. NPR only has so much time in their news segment to cover world news. In the scheme of things, this story shouldn’t even be there. There are a LOT of more important things that did not make it there that should have.

I took the time to look at the report, particularly the findings.

I can sum it up in five words:

“Sandusky Blew, And Paterno Knew”.

Increasing acceptance of decadence and sexual perversion in our culture will, and already is, affecting us all.

Look around you.

It’s not just entertainment, it’s not just pervert priests, in the Penn State scandal it’s people who had widespread trust.

It’s easier to worry about evil across the seas. The look-the-other-way attitude toward wickedness here at home does affect you and those you love. Page One makes us face it, comfortable or not.

I respectfully disagree. I scanned the report a bit. Many high level and influential people with PSU knew what was going on, tried to figure out ways to minimize the news getting out or to law enforcement.

By exposing every detail of this scandal, perhaps a couple of things may happen (1) those guilty in this conspiracy will be subject to charges and punishment for their involvement (2) other academic and community sports programs will be much more vigilant about reporting potential abuses, firing suspected pedophiles, and placing safeguards in their procedures to protect vulnerable children and (3) many thousand of parents and adolescents will be more aware of the signs for potential for these types of abuses.

This is serious stuff. If it is downplayed (as it was for at least a decade), then it seems as if it is not important to both punish those who contributed to this conspiracy and to protect children everywhere from the same outcomes.

There was a poster put up during the Spanish Civil War, there was a quote on it, “If you tolerate this, your children will be next.”

I think this story is serious on multiple levels. For starters, molestation is among the most abhorent crimes. I represented a molestation victim once long ago. The details of that case are too sick to recount. I found a special therapist to work with my client and the family. I spent a great deal of time talking to him about the impact of the trauma on my client, but also about molestation victims generally. I came to understand that the molested carry heavy baggage for life. The therapist told me stories about seniors who had been molested sixty and seventy years earlier breaking down in his office. What they suffered as children still haunted them every single day. The ongoing impact of molestation cannot be overstated. So, when these cases come to light, the light of truth must be bright—not to revel in the gory details, but in the hopes that the next Joe Paterno will do the right thing. How many people would have been spared lifelong trauma if Penn State officials had done the right thing instead of covering it up?

Another consideration is this: we live in a sick celebrity obsessed culture. Americans give their adoration to some of the most undeserving people on the planet. There ought to be something therapeutic about coming to see that some of our “heroes” aren’t all that heroic. It used to kill me to hear Rush going on and on about the great Jimmy Johnson. Rush admired his pursuit of excellence. What Rush forgot to mention was the way in which Jimmy Johnson treated his own family. He forgot to say that Jimmy never once watched his own sons play football. He forgot to say that Jimmy ran out on the mother of his children. He never pointed out that while Jimmy may be a terrific coach, he’s a lousy human being. He sacrificed his family on the alter of success. There is nothing admirable about that.

It’s one of the reasons I abandoned the MSM.

Ever hear of Kings Row?

this shi...stuff has been going on since Adam and eve left the garden. It’s people proving on a daily basis why we need the blood of Christ. It’s not news to me, unless A) it happened to a family member or acquaintance or in my community or B) society is accepting it as ok.

Neither is true in this case.

I agree.

It’s much more comfortable living for yourself, head in the sand.

Kinda lazy, letting others fight the battle, but whatever works for you.

I think you meant to respond to some other post. I’ve done this a couple of times myself. :-)

There is nothing new about this coverup. It has gone on in the Bay Area of San Fran for decades, in the Catholic church for centuries, and in every “gay” bar on the planet since the ancients. Same-sex rape of young boys is the part of the “gay” lifestyle yet remaining in the coprophile’s closet. Others in the Sandusky case stated that several of Sandusky’s victims were passed around the “gay community.” This same practice is not just prevalent in the gay community, it is a primary obsession in the gay community.

And by the way, this is not just pedophilia, it is pederasty, the same-sex rape of young boys by male homosexuals.

The pack of devils aiding and abetting homo men who sexually groom and rape boys is a franchize of US education institutions and public and private child service organizations.

They are working together to regain the fertile ground they lost in the Boy Scouts while covering up the crimes of abuse that led to the current policy of keeping homo men out of the Boy Scouts.

Maybe they'll take the statue of him down now...his index finger extended means "It's all about number one--ME!"

If it wasn't, Joe, you would have stopped that pervert from raping little boys.

The story is also about the huge elephant in the room that NPR would never acknowledge. Homosexual rape of boys. That’s something we should all be alarmed about, no matter where or when it occurs.
