Here is what I know for sure. Jerry Sandusky, former assistant football coach at Penn State University, is a serial pedophile, and he abused children of various ages for extended periods of time. Eight brave survivors of abuse came forward for the trial, but many more have not come forward for various individual, personal reasons. Penn State and longtime football coach Joe Paterno knew that Mr. Sandusky was abusing children and decided it was more important to protect the university and the esteemed football program than to protect children. All this was clearly demonstrated in the Freeh report. Is there anyone out there who truly believes that Mr. Paterno did not know what was going on in his football program or that former president Graham Spanier was unaware of what was happening at his university? If they had spoken up at the time, they could have all been heroes, and many children's lives would have been spared the trauma of sexual abuse.
