Penn State Administrators Spanier, Schultz, Paterno and Curley concealed facts and exposed children to harm for years.
A recent 267-page internal probe by former FBI Director Louis Freeh released today condemned Penn State administrators for a “total disregard for the safety and welfare” of the children sexually abused at the hands of Jerry Sandusky. No kidding.
Some of the key findings, from CNN:
• Before May 1998, several staff members and football coaches regularly observed Sandusky showering with young boys in the Lasch Building (now the East Area Locker Building or “Old Lasch”). None of the individuals interviewed notified their superiors of this behavior.
• University Police and the Department of Public Welfare responded promptly to the report by a young boy’s mother of a possible sexual assault by Sandusky in the Lasch Building on May 3, 1998.
• Despite their knowledge of the criminal investigation of Sandusky, Spanier, Schultz, Paterno and Curley took no action to limit Sandusky’s access to Penn State facilities or took any measures to protect children on their campuses.
• Sandusky was convicted of several assaults that occurred after the 1998 incident. Some of these sexual assaults against young boys might have been prevented had Sandusky been prohibited from bringing minors to University facilities and University football bowl
I think we all knew they were guilty as hell once this interview came out. Now we just have to hear the grisly details.
