This week, the former head of the FBI, Louis Freeh, released a damning report on the Jerry Sandusky child molestation case, regarding the former Penn State assistant coach, molesting disadvantaged young boys at the school, by raping and having sex with them in the showers.
Sandusky was convicted of said charges in a criminal court of law this year. The official review and report by Freeh, regarding the crimes and how they were allowed to transpire and for so long, reveals a widespread cover-up at Penn State, which included the complicity of head coach, the late Joe Paterno.
Freeh, who was commissioned by Penn State's board of trustees, issued a 267 page report on the case. During a press conference this week Freeh stated, "Our most saddening and sobering finding is the total disregard for the safety and welfare of Sandusky's child victims by the most senior leaders at Penn State. The most powerful men at Penn State failed to take any steps for 14 years to protect the children who Sandusky victimized."
There is no excuse for this. Everyone that knew and looked the other way should be prosecuted. So many lives were destroyed by this inexcusable corruption and cowardice. And for every time people looked the other way, Sandusky went after more children and molested them. Someone should have spoken out and done something to stop the kids being molested. When you look the other way to crime, it empowers criminals to think they can do more and worse.
