A total of four??? We'll see about that. Louis Freeh did not have subpoena power so he was not able to force anyone to submit to interviews. The culture in State College (Happy Valley) was/is almost cult like. The school and the surrounding area share a bond that wants to protect PSU at all cost.
Had Sandusky kept his activities close to home he would still be a free man. He made a mistake by going 50 miles away to "groom" one of his victims.
I guarantee there was/is more than four associated with the university who stood by and allowed this to happen. Some who were in seats of power, all the way down to those who cleaned the showers.
IMO, guilty until proven otherwise.
Whoever (plural) was involved with any cover up should be prosecuted. They are the guilty ones. The entire school is NOT guilty. The NCAA should not shut the program down. All this talk about collateral damage being the unfortunate consequence of Sandusky, Paterno and other's transgressions is wrong. If a CEO screws up causing the company to go belly up and the employees to lose their job than that is collateral damage that can't be mitigated, however; any collateral damage in this case can and should be minimized to save the innocent. There isn't anything good that would come out of causing innocent people to lose their jobs. There are plenty of other options that could help. The first would be to put more people in jail besides Sandusky. We all feel sorry for the kids involved including all the innocent people at PSU.
