Welcome to the world of media. People who want to read about Sandusky can read the grand jury report. There is no way any journalist can articulate how evil Sandusky is better than that. Paterno is the bigger name, and there is more controversy over what he did/didn't do. Like it or not, people want to read about Paterno. That's what the media is going to focus on, because it's what the people want.
What is there left to talk about Sandusky? I mean seriously. You know what he did, you know he's been arrested and is going to court for it.
You know the grand jury testimony. Why should he be talked about any further? Yeah man, let's have these kids see Sandusky's face and hear his name all over the television.
The Sandusky part is over. Now we are on to the cover up part. The part where Sandusky's continuance of his actions could have been prevented.
12:35 a.m - The website thepostgame.com is reporting that Ben Andreozzi, a civil attorney who is advising several of the victims of the Sandusky Sex Scandal criticizes the decision made by the Board of Trustees to fire Paterno. Here are some of Andreozzi’s statements:
“The board of trustees got it wrong. They should have consulted the victims before making a decision on Mr. Paterno…They should have considered these victims watch TV and are aware of the students’ reaction and may not want to be associated with the downfall of Mr. Paterno. The school instead elected to do what it felt was in its own best interest at the time. Isn’t that what put the school in this position in the first place?”
“The way the Board reached its decision raises more concerns than the decision itself. There is no indication the Board considered the impact of the decision on the abuse victims. The school let the victims down once, and I think they owed it to the victims to at least gauge how the immediate termination decision would impact them as opposed to Mr. Paterno’s resignation at the end of the year. These victims do not live in a bubble. They see the students reaction to the termination, and to think this does not weigh on their minds would be naive.”
How about we think about the victims instead of Paterno hmm?
