Al Wallace Blog: Stomach-Turning Situation at Penn State
If you’re wondering what all the fuss is about, please take time to read the 23 page report given by the grand jury in the case of Jerry Sandusky in the state of Pennsylvania.
Sandusky is the former Penn State defensive coordinator who is at the center of the child sex scandal that has cost Joe Paterno, the winningest coach in major college history, his job, along the school president and other high ranking campus officials at State College.
The 23 pages is not a page turner, it’s a stomach turner. At times it’s difficult to read. Even more so, it’s difficult to understand how college administrators and coaches of boys and men could allow such acts to happen, and then to continually happen as they basically turned their heads in denial.
Jerry Sandusky deserves a fair trial. But if the allegations in the grand jury report are true, he also deserves to be behind bars for a long time. And none of the principals involved who used to work at Penn State deserve to serve in such a capacity for the rest of their lives.
I say read the report, and remember our children are our most valuable commodity.
