Thank you Lee H. Roberts for finally placing blame where it lies! However, I'd like to know why no one has called for an investigation into Gov. Tom Corbett? According to ESPN writter Don Van Natta Jr., Corbett, the state's attorney general at the time, accepted campaign contributions from Second Mile charity donators when he was in charge of investigating the sexual abuse of children by Second Mile charities. After being elected govenor, he then provided the same charity with a $2 million grant.
In my humble opinion, this should be thoroughly investigated, and if these charges are indeed true, and Gov. Corbett is found guilty, then he needs removed from office.
And yet we're tearing down the statue and denying the career and good name of a man who did nothing but promote honor and education of good young men, based on no evidence of any wrongdoing. How can this be? Have we learned nothing from the Salem Witch Trials?
Unfortunately, tearing down JoePa's statue and removing Joe's career, and the NCAA punishing the current football players from Penn State doesn't fix the social system that investigated, but failed to prosecute this predator. And if the experts couldn't determine that he was a sexual predator and stop him, how do you expect a football coach to do that?
Thank you again for a well written article that begins to point the blame in the right direction. Our social systems to protect children just weren't doing enough back then. We can only hope that they are better today.
