According to newly unsealed records, former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno knew as early as 1976 that Jerry Sandusky was sexually abusing children. Think about that. There was testimony in these records that said someone who claimed to have been sexually assaulted by Sandusky came forward and told him about it. Paterno’s response? “I don’t want to hear about any of that kind of stuff, I have a football season to worry about.”
He knew. He knew and he didn’t do anything about it. He knew and he was more worried about football than the boys his coach was sexually abusing. I know all of these coaches are dead or serving time, but damnit all to hell.
