Penn State Child Molestation Scandal...continuing discussion

Not sure if this belongs here or in FYM, but with Paterno's status for the remainder of the season confirmed, the situation is growing less and less related to college football specifically and therefore deserves its own thread.

Agreed.

Only move Penn State could make.

CNN cameras show a *lot* of students rallying for Paterno right now. I hope someday they'll realize how foolish they were.

The Board of Trustees waited until Wednesday to make this move, and that was an awful decision. If they had made this move Saturday, things would not have gotten to this.

It's quickly getting out of hand.

I don't think they could have waited until Saturday. They had to make this move ASAP. These dumbass students need to control themselves.

I think if I followed this story on CNN for more than an hour I'd kill myself.

I'm so sorry you have to live this shit, Peef.

I didn't see the press conference. I was at Paternoville when the axe dropped.

I don't care whether they think they're in the right or not, they're being assholes. Fuck this bullshit. He deserved to be fired. The more I hear about the riots for him, the more disgusted I get.

This shit is so sad.

I'm sorry peefer. This sucks. Your entire student body is just getting torched right now.

And I understand that there are a lot of idiots there. Sure, when they're chanting "WE LOVE JOE!" they might as well be chanting "WE LOVE THE ANAL RAPE OF CHILDREN!" but it obviously isn't the entirety of the Penn St. community doing this.

This will be a stain on the student body, and the entire university, but I sincerely do hope that you guys recover from tonight's actions, and from everything that's happened this week, and from the entire (potentially) 13 + year conspiracy to cover up what Sandusky did.

Fuck you, Sandusky. Fuck you, seriously.

And Paterno...god damn. What a pathetic way to go out. Just unreal.

Joe Paterno has just come out to address the crowd. Urged the students to "go study" and pray for the victims.

Thousands of people are heading down McAllister. Police are using mace on the crowd.

Shouts of "f--- the media"; one student seen yelling at TV news reporter.

The crowd overturned a news van on College Avenue.
