The grand jury found that at least 8 people at Penn State had either witnessed former coach Jerry Sandusky molesting children, or been told that others had witnessed abuse. And yet, it seems, not one of them informed law enforcement authorities.
The crazy thing about what's happening in the public's eye these days is that people can accuse someone of something with no proof and the media puppets go after it as if proof was given. To this day there is no actual proof that Cain sexually harassed anyone yet it has been a first tier topic for a couple weeks now. The fact that no proof was given means reports should have dug deeper before running with it.
“They have other people who are saying they saw something, but they don’t have actual people saying, ‘This is what Jerry did to me,” Amendola said. “We’re working to find those people, and when the time comes, and if we are able to do that, we think this whole case will change dramatically.”
Can this quote possibly be true? Is it possible that no one is actually coming forward with a first hand account? Is it possible that we have completely left innocent until proven guilty in exchange for cheap thrills of popularity and dramatic delivery?
you know I agree with you that Joe is liable, but he is by far not the only one or even the primary one that should be held responsible. He is just the most popular individual in the scandal. I was just reading an article in Men's Health http://www.menshealth.com/health/why-joe-paterno-didnt-call-police where they talk about the details of the incident involving Joe Paterno. I'm def not giving Joe a free ride here, but I think just because he was the highest profiled individual shouldn't mean he is given a more harsh punishment for handling a second hand account. Someone should have called the cops, I am curious as to why they didn't. And more so, can we try to understand why this happens. This seems to happen a lot. The ignoring of evidence because of the "he/she can't possibly be abusing children" syndrome.
