why didn't the grad assistant? He's the one that saw it. What was Joe going to tell them? "Oh someone who doesn't want to call you told me he saw an incident in the locker room but didn't go into detail". If anyone should have reported it, it should have been the person who saw it. Legally, though, it was the AD's responsibility to report it.
oh fuck you! what i'm assuming happened was this dickbag GA saw this shit happen, called his dad and said something like "dad, fuck, i need to call the cops, but i don't wanna ruin my career. if i cause a huge stir, they'll probably bury me and i'll end up teaching middle school gym for $29k for the rest of my life. what should i do?"
"well, son, maybe you should go talk to jopa in the morning, tell him what you saw, and take it from there. you know, feel him out."
so the GA then goes to jopa's fucking HOUSE, and in the midst of talking to a living legend about 10 year old asshole penetration, says something along the lines of "well, i saw coach sandusky with a young boy sir. he was, ughm, fondling? the child, sir." then jopa, in his haze of not knowing what the fuck is happening ever, calls the AD and says "hey dude, some kid just showed up at my house and talked for 45 minutes about his job and how he saw sandusky fucking another kid in the showers. just thought i'd let you know, cuz i'm going out for a round of 18 today and don't wanna fuck things up with that. anyway, see ya!"
this whole thing is bullshit. MAYBE i can see him not wanting to call in information that he didn't witness himself. but when you have an employee come to you to tell you about one of your assistants fucking a 10 year old child in the ass in your teams fucking locker room showers, you call the cops. you don't call the AD. jopa, with all the weight he pulls at penn state, basically IS the athletic department.
anybody that's defending joe paterno or anybody else in the penn state athletic department is an asshole.
