Ugghghhhh!!!!!!!! Part II

Ya try to take a break from the news cycles and it never fails,something so egregious occurs that serves as a cherry on a repressed memory sundae and BAM! one is screaming like that painting.

Well anyway the source of my angst today is the idiot youth and various other miscreants who are and or support Penn State. The Uni is  channeling the Catholic church in their arrogance,ignorance and shame over the pedo coach and the see no evil (although they did) speak no evil ( they got that down) hear no evil ( they’re hearing it now) monkeys that include Joey Paterno. Now 1000s riot?!?!? You have got to be kidding me. If I was a Nittany Lion I’d be looking for a refund not one more game from the shameful pricks that is the coaches and staff plus the school admins. In reports I’ve seen at least one player got it right trying to temper any anger folks have by rightly stating the victims of the pedophile and his enablers have it far worse.

America is pretty much fucked when the “future” cares more about a coaches legacy and a football game than the integrity of their school and the sanctity of innocence.

    What more is there to say? You nailed this one 100%.

    Interesting that the church scandal and the university scandal intersect in the following comment from Paterno: “Say a little prayer for the victims.” Seems a little late for Joe to be suggesting that if you ask me. Maybe Joe figures if prayer can substitute for justice for the victims in the Catholic church then it might work in college football as well. 😦

    Every little bit added to this story just amps up the fact that I’m starting to look like the painting.

  4. This whole situation just comes across as insane…

    I found this article courtesy PanAm World (see blog roll in side bar titled Wandering Points)

  6. Myself, I am waiting for some new ideas on how to handle these all too often sorts of situations. While the rhetoric always seems to be to assist the victims with recovery and healing while taking the heads of the offenders is the norm. That simply does not seem to be enough, or isn’t being done properly. And no, suing the living hell out of anyone / institution only makes attorneys happy.

    I have been trying to wrap my head around this situation for days and cannot – there is too much disgust in every thought. Alfie – you are 100% right on this one. Here in Massachusetts we have some of the tougher “reporting laws” for this type of situation (ie: who is responsible/required to report child abuse – teachers, doctors, etc) and presently one of our state reps is working on a broadening this law so that it will require an even greater base of people to report child abuse. @ Patrick – lawsuits will not help – I personally feel that any and all individuals who knew of the abuse and failed to properly report it to the authorities should be arrested and charge with either accessory after the fact or aiding and abetting. In not stopping Sandusky – more children were victimized – their lack of action has scarred these children for life thus making their lack of action is just as criminal as the act itself. “All that’s necesary for the forces of evil to win in the world is for enough good men to do nothing” – E.
