I'm right here, you worthless ****.
I guess it's easy to ignore the fact that all of Sandusky's victims issued a statement through their attorney months ago that supported Paterno and criticized his firing. None of you **** who are vilifying Paterno even know what happened or why it happened.
You just listen to piss-poor reporting from ESPN or idiotic babble from Mike & Mike or Colin Cowher and think you know the entire story.
I'd be willing to bet you're in the same boat. Perhaps it would be best to not treat his death as if he's a diety and quietly observe his memory if you so choose. Getting on here and berating people is not going to help anyone see the error of their ways. If he knew what was going on and only reported it to his "superiors," especially about a person that--as you pointed out--was not on staff (an employee), that's just an unforgivable lapse of judgment.
Now, that's not to say that all of his good deeds throughout his life should be cast aside, but his memory should take into account the totality of his actions. It is so unfortunate that his life ended with this cloud hanging over his legacy, but only because it's even sadder what the victims had to experience.
