How can you question the judgments of a man who dedicated his life to serving youth and competing the right way? If you knew anything about Paterno you would know that winning football games was never his priority—it was being a leader for youth.

“How” could this have happened, you ask. Then you go on to assume information as if you were there and point your finger of judgments at Paterno. Paterno was no longer his boss, yet you call him out as a representative of central PA’s uncaring attitude towards the victims in the Sandusky trail and the priority we put on winning.

Sir, I live here in Chattanooga now and I am from that quaint little PA town of Bellefonte and I take serious offence towards your ignorance and assumptions. In response I have a question to you, why didn’t his wife, a person a whole lot closer to him than Paterno, do or say anything? A Chattanooga native and not from football crazed central PA, Dottie Sandusky surely hates little kids too! Since she had to have known her husband was really a monster, but let him molest children in her own home.

I use sarcasm only to show how ridiculous your (lack of) reporting is in this article. If you wanted to write about something why not write about the how Sandusky fooled his wife, his family, a nationally known non-profit for children, and everyone else who knew him. That this monster did what he did and even some of his own victims hadn’t known that they were molested until recently. And, that these monsters are a fact of our society, there are others just like him, doing what he did, and they live in communities all across this great country. But no, it is a whole lot easier to sit up in your perch and demonize people.
