What happened between Sandusky and the children is definitely vile and he should be punished to the fullest extent of the law.
But the headhunt for Paterno and PSU Football is where everyone is getting off-base. This has absolutely nothing to do with PSU football. If Paterno steps down, or is forced out because of this, nothing should happen to PSU football. And Paterno should NOT be asked to step down, he is simply the biggest name in all of this and has become the biggest target because of it. Sandusky has been turned in and investigated by police/attorney general TWICE before this arrest. Once in 1998 even before Paterno was made aware of the 2002 incident and again in 2009.
So if this is all just coming out now, why is Paterno the bad guy who has to take the axe for everyone else? He didn't pursue a conclusion that he probably, morally, should have. But he properly reported what he did know. The failure to stop Sandusky occurred before Paterno was even involved. This is not a case of Paterno or anyone in PSU football aiding Sandusky and covering up for him.
