Describing the downfall of Paterno as “clearly the most devastating thing to come out of the sex scandal,” outlets from ESPN to USA Today asked Sandusky’s victims if, while being forced to engage in oral and anal sex with a man 40 to 50 years their senior, their primary fear was for Paterno’s reputation—and, specifically, for how revelations of their suffering might diminish his two national championships, three Big Ten titles, and 24 bowl victories.
I’m getting back together with one of the most important bands in my musical world. Catfish Blue, the band I joined in 9th grade which my brother lead is setting up for our now annual reunion show. Here’s the article in the Eagle (that’s my hometown newspaper):
Let’s just be clear about one more thing. I get that I am a social worker and this is what I do all the time, so I have a bit of a bias and some expertise on the matter. That being said, if you saw a child being raped in a locker room, heard about a child being raped in your locker room, or employ someone that raped a child in your locker room. You don’t get to just tell your boss. You tell the fucking police, you call protective services. You don’t stop until something is done to prevent this fuck wad from being around anymore children. This isn’t about some bullshit legacy or winning fucking football games. That shit doesn’t actually matter. This is about children. Children getting raped by a old man that was supposed protect them, and a bunch of assclowns that did basically nothing to prevent this from happening. That’s it. So, when you go to a rally to support Coach Paterno, just remember were he was when he heard about children being raped in his locker room. Remember how upset he was about that. Remember he just told he boss and then went and worked on his legacy.
As a Penn State student I find what you said entirely offensive. We were supporting our coach, our legacy, and our reputation. Joe Paterno didn't touch the victims. He reported the crimes to the people he needed to, and it was them that did nothing about it. He's being a scapegoat for all of this and getting more shit than the guy who actually raped the kids are. Know what you're saying before you say we support child rape. All 94,000 student's hearts go out to the victims and their families.
I am genuinely happy to hear that you found my post “entirely offensive.” That was the point. Victory to me. Yeah, he just told his boss. That is totally good enough. That was the moral thing to do. I am sure that helps you guys sleep better at night.
Also, I am sure most of the 94,000 students hearts do go out to the families, just not those clowns at the “rally.”
They must’ve reserved them during the offseason, thinking it was going to be another season that the Lions still sucked. Unfortunately, they’re good this year, and now it’s like inviting a bad omen to play at your game.
I genuinely hate petitions and find them both stupid and useless, but this shit must be stopped.
Hip hop and basketball have gone hand-in-hand ever since Kurtis Blow greased up his ‘fro and wrote a song dedicated to the sport back in ’84. There has been a litany of b-ballers that have tried their hand at the rap game (Iverson, Ron Artest and Chris Webber to name a few) and a handful of…
