There was this big, respected university with an iconic legend as its football coach.
It also had a pedophile operating in its program.
School officials knew this back in 1998 and covered it up.
They chose this “humane” route of covering up, turning their backs and protecting themselves rather than kids for more than a decade as boys went on being raped in the campus showers and on football trips. They did this because it benefited them, was easier for them and protected what they valued most — the football program.
The author goes on to say that she believes the football program needs to come to an end at this time, partly because it will send a strong message to other schools and institutions. She also says "A big reason this was allowed to happen was because the whole economy of Penn State was football. If you take that away, they might learn."
Do you agree?
