Translation: they paid some people to make it look better. It didn’t work.

Nice, pay for a ‘report’ to validate your evil. The victims would still be stacking up if the Paternos had their way.

I could pay someone to make something up to! The relatives sound like a bunch of child molesters themselves. Sounds like they knew about it also before, but did nothing. Lets go after his family then too, sue them for not coming forth with this before.

Unfortunately, the teacher and principal who knew of the child sexual abuse in the public school—did NOTHING! The parent did NOTHING! Sandusky and his vile behaviors were NOT stopped in 1998. Who is to blame?..Let’s see–the public school, the Pennsylvania Department of Child Welfare, the PA Attorney General’s Office for sitting on the case for a few years–the psychologist—since these folks knew before Penn State! But Penn State is where the money is—not Second Mile. Read the BOTH reports and the presentment–Joe is dead so beating up the dead guy is NOT an option. He was not the pedophile—Sandusky was–If anything you should be able to follow the logic or is this too complicated? But–that would mean logic—a characteristic that is absent in the post!

I had to laugh at Freeh’s comeback about the Paterno family hiring “former government officials” to write their report as that is exactly why Freeh was hired.

The huge difference is that the Paterno family hired two experts on pedophilia, including a former FBI profiler who specialized in child sex crimes. Freeh lacked that expertise, so it is not surprising that his investigation and report were failures.

Anyone who believes Freeh is a credible investigator is unfamiliar with his history of coverup jobs including Waco. That he responded to the Paterno Report an hour after it was published (and without reading it) shows how scared he is of being exposed as a libelous fraud.

Everyone is welcome to their own opinions! However, if you are going to argue that this new report was generated with a bias due to who initiated it you must also consider the fact that the original report was done on behalf of the University to validate the way it handled everything during the onset of this horrible situation. Including the firing of Joe Paterno. If you’re looking for conspiracies then look for them everywhere not just where you want them to be.

@FactChecker62, The University handling the situation was indeed the problem but it was via Paterno. Paterno had tremendous administrative power and influence within the University. The way he handled it was to use his power and influence to cover-up and perpetuate disgusting crimes.
