Amidst the idiocy of the Penn State riotous, soul-less, rabble’s response to their deity’s toppling over multiple charges of institutional cover-up of the sports-children-sexual-abuse-industrial-complex, there are thankfully, several rational reactions to this community’s crisis including these protesters speaking out.

There seems to be some confusion. Students rioted at Penn State. And some have picked the wrong side. They protested the firing of legendary coach, Joe Paterno. Not the loss of the innocence of children.
Did I miss something? A respected adult has KNOWLEDGE about young boys being molested and does next-to-nothing to stop it. Now, years later, there are finally consequences. Someone is finally standing up for the victims, who…again, were CHILDREN…. and people are protesting?
Ahhh…. but relief… some students, like these here, DO get it and instead of wanting to yell, “where are your parents??” I find myself wanting to send their parents a note of congratulations — as these are the young adults I hope my children will emulate.
Meanwhile the ripple effects of the events at Penn State continue to echo outward … even to Texas:

HOUSTON (CBS Houston) – The child sex abuse scandal coming out of Penn State University involves alleged child sex crimes, one of which may have occurred in Texas when the school’s football team was in San Antonio for the Alamo Bowl in 1999.
San Antonio police Sgt. Chris Benavides told the Associated Press Thursday that his department is “looking into the possibility that an offense may have happened” while the football team was in town.

Former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky, who coached at Penn State for more than 30 years, is the accused perpetrator and faces child sex abuse charges in Pennsylvania. A grand jury report says a young boy, who was allegedly molested, was threatened to be sent home if the victim resisted Sandusky’s criminal sex acts against him.
Legendary coach Joe Paterno was fired Wednesday for his role in not reporting to police what he knew about Sandusky’s alleged crime.
