Not only did I read it, but I also read all of the reports analyzing it. I guarantee you, there is nothing about this story you will tell me that I haven't read. Reporting something does not make it fact, and I'm pretty sure you already know that. Jumping the gun to makea story go away is not the right way to get to the bottom of things. Someone, a whole bunch of someones, wants this story to go away. We want the truth and if the truth proves Joe Paterno covered up for Sandusky, then I'll admit I was wrong. I just won't condemn anyone without evidence.
Greg Bucceroni is a police officer and a victim's advocate. I doubt he's crazy, but we already know Sandusky is just a bit "off" shall we say?
No, but someone who's a friend of Emmert will be appointed to manage those funds...at most likely a very generous compensation package. The NCAA willl get something out of this, rest assured.
If you attended OSU, then you didn't read the Freeh Report. You did what most people did, you just read his summary. If you read the whole report, you'd find that his summary is not supported by the evidence. OSU puts out more intelligent people than that, so I'm pretty sure you didn't take the time or effort to read it all. They banked on those just like you. People who don't have a personal connection tend to not investigate the facts. The pedophiles are still out there though. I guess I could ignore that too since they're relocating to Texas and won't be in my backyard anymore. When I consider doing that, I feel like heaving. They need to be stopped and the only way to stop them is for people to talk about this ad share the facts....not the media spin....the facts. Search Greg Bucceroni and read his tweets and read his story.
I think you got it! I still think Freeh is behind Emmert's sanctions and ironcally, according to Greg Buccieroni, Freeh knew about Sandusky back in 1970's and 1980's when he was working for the FBI. If he sat on the information, maybe that's why his report only went back to 1998, when DA Gricar refused to bring charges after Children & Youth turned the allegations over to Department of Public Welfare. I guess he wouldn't have wanted to expose himself....
Your comments are largely the reason why I always cheer for OSU...when you're not playing PSU that is. Everyone should stop and think about this. Something smells very fishy about this whole story. Sandusky is scum, absolutely no doubt. Curley and Schultz, I'm just not sure. I'll wait for the trial to see the evidence on them. Spanier, again, I'm just not sure. I have a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach about this whole thing. The only thing you said that I question is "why Joe Paterno did what he did". Joe reported this to Curley and Schultz. He followed up with them a few weeks later. He followed up with McQueary a few months later. Would someone who was covering something have reported it to the head of the police? That just doesn't make sense and yet there is zero doubt that Joe DID report it and DID follow up. That evidence is out, although not discussed much on ESPN and its copycat media networks, it was briefly mentoned, sort of in passing. Now, of course, Greg Bucceroni has come forward and the only network covering his story is CBS, at least to my knowledge. Of course I no longer watch ESPN and never will again until it apologizes for the horrific mistruths reported about this horrible sequence of events. I am not a PSU graduate, but I fully support all Penn Staters right now. My heart breaks for those who have been assaulted at Walmarts in Florida for having a PSU bumper sticker on their cars, for those who have had their doors smached in and permanent black marker obscenities about PSU written all over their cars, and for those who have been called pedophile enablers because they do not support the firing of a 61-year employee of PSU without one shred of evidence that he did anything wrong...and in fact much evidence that he did everything he should have done. Something definitely smells funny and I'm betting if Greg Bucceroni doesn't disappear like Ray Gricar did or doesn't end up dead, execution style, like a US Attorney did.....we may soon know the ugly and horrific truth about some very well-known and very powerful people.
That's why the Freeh Report findings should not be believed. The men who "perjured themselves" don't even go to trial until January of 2013. How could Freeh find as a fact that anyone perjured himself when there hasn't been a trial on that issue to date? As for Sandusky, he will burn in hell, as well he should. Here's to hoping he starts singing about the other pedophiles... As for the perjury charges, only 2 men have been charged. Joe Paterno was "commended for his handling of the entire situation" by Linda Kelly. She didn't change her position until Corbutt and Noonan started blaming Joe for not doing enough "morally". Noonan is the Commissioner of the PA State Police. Doesn't it seem strange to anyone that a state police commissioner would condemn someone for obeying the written law and instead call for people to act on their own "morals"?
Ask why the NCAA hasn't acted against Syracuse, the Citadel, etc., etc. Emmert was TOLD to act against PSU by very powerful people involved in the coverup of a pedophile sex ring that is currently being relocated to Texas. Pennsylvania has become too intensive for them with all the federal investigations right now. Anyone remember The Catholic Church relocations???? This will not go away unless all are exposed. Jerry Sandusky was not operating alone. Joe Paterno was not a part of this. I'm not sure about Curley, Schultz and Spanier, but as far as Joe goes, I'm not buying the media garbage. There is not one shred of evidence against Joe Paterno and until I see some, he gets the benefit of the doubt from me. At least he said, "with the benefit of hindsight, I wish I'd done more" which is far more than any other single individual has said since this story broke. Even with that being said, he should NOT have done more than he did. There are trained professionals who are supposed to handle investigations and to deal with questioning victims and suspects. Joe didn't have the proper training and I surely wouldn't have wanted him to question my child without proper training. Greg Bucceroni is the number one enemy of some very powerful politicians and peophiles.
...or it was a threat designed to make this all go away before the whole truth is revealed.
So where are all of you people out there who said, "I would have done more than Joe Paterno did."? At least Joe reported it to 2 people and followed up 2 times. How many of you have shared this information as loudly as you condemn all Penn Staters for the actions of a creepy pedophile? This is a coverup bigger than you can EVER imagine. Greg is tweeting about this as well; and it's extremely disturbing to hear that Freeh had knowledge of Sandusky's actions as far back as the 1970's and 1980's. It certainly does explain a lot, though. Whether this was a coverup by PSU officials or powerful members of a pedophile ring blaming PSU so they can carry on, this needs to be stopped. I care about the victims and I've been begging for an investigation about this for nine months. I never believed for a second that a man can earn a 61 year impeccable reputation of honsty and integrity "by accident". My beliefs, though, are irrelevent. Please share this information so these monsters are removed from our streets and our kids can finally be safe. This is disgusting and if you don't have a strong stomach, don't read it. It makes me ill. http://www.crossingbroad.com/2012/08/this-guy-says-he-was-offered-200-to-have-sex-with-jerry-sandusky-in-1979-and-1980.html CBS has covered this, and continues to cover it, but none of the other major networks have done so because ESPN hasn't reported it yet.
