Lock up Jerry Sandusky and throw away the key

It was sad to note that even though Jerry Sandusky's boss, Joe Paterno, had heard at least one report that his subordinate was sexually abusing young boys, he never told police. Apparently he hoped the problem would just disappear.

He should be tried and sentenced to prison for the rest of his life.
