What is Penn State going to do with 900 lbs of bronze?

The report by former FBI Director Louis Freeh on the Penn State/Sandusky abuse scandal is very damning to the legacy of Joe Paterno.  Form your own opinions on it, but I believe the statue has to come down.

Highlights Lowlights of the report:

“Four of the most powerful people at The Pennsylvania State University  President Graham B. Spanier, Senior Vice President-Finance and Business Gary C. Schultz, Athletic Director Timothy M. Curley and Head Football Coach Joseph V. Paterno failed to protect against a child sexual predator harming children for over a decade.”

“These men concealed Sandusky’s activities from the Board of Trustees, the University community and authorities. They exhibited a striking lack of empathy for Sandusky’s victims by failing to inquire as to their safety and well-being, especially by not attempting to determine the identity of the child who Sandusky assaulted in the Lasch Building in 2001. …

“These individuals, unchecked by the Board of Trustees that did not perform its oversight duties, empowered Sandusky to attract potential victims to the campus and football events by allowing him to have continued, unrestricted and unsupervised access to the University’s facilities and affiliation with the University’s prominent football program.”

Here is the report if you want to check it out.
