Another day, another chapter in the sad and still-unfolding Jerry Sandusky scandal at Penn State.
Even in the wake of Sandusky's conviction last week on child abuse charges, more disturbing details are emerging about how Penn State handled the Sandusky situation--and how the inaction of a few men allowed Sandusky to remain a free man, even after suspicious were raised as to his behavior with young boys.
The latest news comes from CNN, which on Friday night released a new report that indicates the highest levels of the Penn State administration did, in fact, discuss how to handle an allegation against Sandusky back in 2001. In short, the report does not make the university leadership look very good--and it hints that former coach Joe Paterno was fully in the loop with these discussions as well.
