I am not, nor ever will be, a fan of Penn State. I am not a big sports fan, either. I couldn't care less if Penn State dies on the vine and never wins another game. That said I think the punishment does not fit the crime. Apparently Joe Paterno heard one allegation and reported it. He did not cover it up, he reported it. For this he loses his entire legacy, after he is dead and can't defend himself.
Ms.Hicks, any parent who punishes innocent children to prove a point to the guilty ones is a BAD PARENT. If they do it unknowingly they are a negligent parent at best. If they KNOW they are punishing an innocent child they need lessons in parenting.
