The AP is reporting now that Joe Paterno will announce later today that he has decided to retire at the end of the season, and HOLY FUCK you have got to be kidding me. They’re gonna let him coach the rest of the season? He shielded a guy who was raping kids! Here’s a quote from Sports Illustrated…
Pennsylvania Attorney General Linda Kelly said on Monday that the inaction of Penn State… “likely allowed a child predator to continue to victimize children for many, many years.”
And clearly Penn State still doesn’t give a fuck. Paterno knew as much as anyone, in fact he knew more. Mike McQueary is the GA who says he witnessed Jerry Sandusky raping a 10-year-old boy in the shower, and obviously Paterno and the AD believe him because McQueary got promoted to wide receivers coach after the incident and he’s been there ever since. He accused a coach who had been there for 30 years of molesting kids and Paterno didn’t tell him to fuck off so obviously he believed him. And he did nothing. And now, at least on the surface, he gets to retire on his own terms. This is stunning. They should fire his ass immediately and shoot him off campus in a catapult.
