Penn State Campus Now Rioting, Demonstrating (Photos)

In a span of five days, we’ve seen the Penn State Nittany Lions sex scandal go from breaking news story, to earth-shattering scandal to surreal,”take a moment to remember where you are” type of media circus.

And it’s perfectly understandable, since new information breaks every hour, and the situation gets darker, weirder, sadder and indicative of the worst elements in human nature every time news breaks.

Now the students in University Park have taken to the streets, yes they are demonstrating, rioting. Yes rallying and taking grassroots political action supporting Joe Paterno. Now that JoePa has been fired, that town is going to burn.

Here are some photos:

On Tuesday, Mark Viera and Pete Thamel of the New York Times reported that Penn State University is planning the resignation of long-time Head Coach Joe Paterno. We learned today that it will happen at the end of the 2011 season. JoePa will indeed step down; but not until finishing the seaon.

Penn State had to make some heavy decisions these past 24 hours as the Jerry Sandusky scandal has snowballed into one of the biggest stories in college football history.

Penn State Pedophile Cover-Up: Time for PSU Football to Clean House!

Jerry Sandusky’s Book entitled “Touched,” Getting Deservedly Slammed on Amazon

In the wake of the Penn State sex scandal, the fact that a book called Touched, the story of Jerry Sandusky’s life in his own words, still sits on Amazon’s virtual bookshelf is both disturbing and horrid.

This disgusting coincidence is highlighted by many Amazon “book reviewers.” We’ll show some of the best best book reviews after the jump. Sandusky’s autobiography highlights his college football career and his involvement in children’s charities, including the founding of his charity, “Second Mile.”

Which we all know now he used to find his vulnerable boys to prey upon and sodomize (allegedly).

Joe Paterno Did Minimum Required Legally; Fell WELL SHORT Morally

What’s going on in Penn State right now is a lot more than a college football scandal. It’s a lot more than a Penn State University scandal. It’s an evil, and complicity to evil so large in its scope that it transcends both football and education. The case of criminal pedophile Jerry Sandusky is a world-turning story that includes, but also goes well beyond the man with the most wins in college football history.

But it’s more than a college football story.

And it’s clear now that the legacy of Joe Paterno, one of the most iconic figures in the sport’s history, is ruined forever. And JoePa earned it, through the sin of omission, rather than the sin of commission.

What Did Joe Paterno Know Regarding Penn State Child Sex Abuse Case?

When it comes to the cover-up of any crime, the question all legal professionals first seek answers to is “what did he know and when did he know it?”

As we posted earlier, former Nittany Lions Defensive Coordinator Jerry Sandusky was arrested on charges that he sexually abused eight young men.

Also, Penn State Athletic Director Tim Curley and Penn State vice president for finance and business Gary Schultz are facing charges of perjury and failure to report under Pennsylvania’s child protective services law in connection with the investigation into the abuse allegations against Sandusky.

So when there are charges of this nature surrounding a high profile program like Penn State, the next question is what did the coach know and when did he know it? In college football, programs ARE their head coach. When that coach is Joe Paterno, the all-time leader in coaching wins, the information becomes even more sought after.

What you’ll see in the grand jury report will no doubt adversely affect the legend of JoePa.
