    Yes... and people have done all of those for serial killers and have gotten much lighter sentences. Sandusky isn't getting half of the limelight of Joe

    I'm not aware of any convicted serial killers that got off lighter than Jo. Jo Paterno is in the spotlight largely because Sandusky has already been tried and found guilty. We know that Paterno knew about these things and covered them up. He should be in the limelight and although he didn't directly molest kids, he bears some of the responsibility for it.

    I didn't say serial killers. People who aid crimes get off with a lesser charge.

    I believe you are trying to paint me as heartless. It is not so. I am just forgiving and justice stops at justice. Removing the statue doesn't really do anything

    Makes sure those families never have to walk by someone's statue who allowed their child to be abused.

    So they'll just walk by an empty spot and still remember the statue? Either way it's painted in memories, removing it will not erase.

    Moderator's Warning:
    Poll:  Should the JoePa statue remain up?Do not do this. The topic is not other posters, but Joe Paterno and his statue.
