Not shocking considering everything revealed so far, it's just confirmation of institutionalized pedophilia ignored for the sake of appearance.

Louis Freeh: Penn State disregarded children’s safety



By Associated Press

Thursday, July 12, 2012




PHILADELPHIA — Joe Paterno and other top Penn State officials hushed up child sex abuse allegation against Jerry Sandusky more than a decade ago for fear of bad publicity, allowing Sandusky to prey on other youngsters, according to a scathing internal report issued today on the scandal.



"Our most saddening and sobering finding is the total disregard for the safety and welfare of Sandusky’s child victims by the most senior leaders at Penn State," said former FBI Director Louis Freeh, who was hired by university trustees to look into what has become one of sports’ biggest scandals. "The most powerful men at Penn State failed to take any steps for 14 years to protect the children who Sandusky victimized."



After an eight-month inquiry, Freeh’s firm produced a 267-page report that concluded that Hall of Fame coach Paterno, President Graham Spanier, athletic director Tim Curley and vice president Gary Schultz "failed to protect against a child sexual predator harming children for over a decade."



Freeh called the officials’ disregard for child victims "callous and shocking."




"In order to avoid the consequences of bad publicity, the most powerful leaders at the university — Spanier, Schultz, Paterno and Curley — repeatedly concealed critical facts relating to Sandusky’s child abuse," the report said. Paterno "was an integral part of this active decision to conceal," Freeh said at a news conference.



School leaders "empowered Sandusky to attract potential victims to the campus and football events by allowing him to have continued, unrestricted and unsupervised access" to campus and his affiliation with the football program, the report said. The access, the report states, "provided Sandusky with the very currency that enabled him to attract his victims."



Freeh said officials had opportunities in 1998 and 2001 to step in.



Sexual abuse might have been prevented if university officials had banned Sandusky from bringing children onto campus after a 1998 inquiry, the report said. Despite their knowledge of the police probe into Sandusky showering with a boy in a football locker room, Spanier, Paterno, Curley and Schultz took no action to limit his access to campus, the report said.



The May 1998 complaint by a woman whose son came home with wet hair after showering with Sandusky didn’t result in charges at the time. The report says Schultz was worried the matter could be opening "Pandora’s box."



Then, in 2001, after a member of Paterno’s staff saw Sandusky in a campus shower with a boy, officials did bar him from bringing children to campus and decided not to report him to child welfare authorities.



"There’s more red flags here than you could count over a long period of time," Freeh said.



Sandusky is awaiting sentencing after being convicted of 45 criminal counts for abusing 10 boys.


More.

I think this is tied in also with the case.

Except for that none of the fans knew about it until the arrest and allegations came out. What a stupid thing to say when this has come out today. Why do you defend and minimize child rape? Are you that much of a monster?

I'm neither defending nor minimising child rape so stop your lying.



I am turning one of YOUR arguments about the Catholic church around and pointing it right back at you

No you are not. You are defending child rape in both the Catholic church and the Penn State cases. Don't try to hide it now, it's far too ate for that. And you have done it consistently in order to defend the Vatican.

Here's how you tried to smear every member of the Roman Catholic church, all 1.2 Billion of them, in a trollish thread entitled



Catholics sanction child rape when they give to the church







Anyone knowingly paying into an organization after learning about it's crimes is a supporter of those crimes.

Yet you want to apply a different standard to football fans?



This demonstrates yet again your bigoted christiophobic views, which are even more disgraceful considering you are a mod and are supposed to be fair and balanced.

What a bunch of dishonest crap from you yet again. Penn State should be punished for allowing this to happen under their noses simply because they disregarded the evidence so it wouldn't tarnish their football department. All people involved in that are guilty of the same thing that the Vatican is guilty of, only the Vatican is guilty on a far, far larger scale because it protected many priests and allowed the abuse and rapes to continue with their blessing it seems. One man who worked for a department of a university and who is now in jail for his crimes does not compare to what the Vatican has done and it certainly does not equate with fans who knew nothing of this beoire it came out are guilty in the same way as the Vatican is. You really are grasping at straws here in your attempts to defend this criminal and corrupt organization.

So the members of the Catholic church are guilty because they continue to make donations, but Penn State fans are not.



Thanks for proving your christiophobic bigotry yet again
