Oh Joe!

Penn State Nittany Lions head coach Joe Patern...

Jerry Sandusky, right, the former Penn State d...Penn State football‘s legendary Coach, Joe Paterno, “walks on water”, or if someone claimed he did, few would dare to disagree.

If he speaks, surely PENN STATE University Presidents tremble.

That’s why his apparent failure to fully pursue a claim by someone who witnessed his assistant defensive coach, Jerry Sandusky, molesting a child, is such a huge deal.

He obeyed the letter of the law by doing his “duty”; he reported it to campus administration, but continued to allow Jerry Sandusky access to young men and little boys from that point in 2002.

I wonder too about whether this eyewitness, now an assistant football coach at Penn State, stepped in to try to stop the molestation.

Whatever the reason, Joe Paterno made the worst call of his life in allowing Jerry Sandusky, a predator  of vulnerable young boys, access to them.

Joe had power at Penn State, and failed to use it to protect the powerless.
