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.

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?”
