The independent investigation of Penn State has been concluded by former FBI Director Louis Freeh. According to numerous news sources, it is to be released Thursday morning at 9 a.m. with a press conference to follow at 10 a.m. Pundits are speculating that the report will be devastating to Penn State and set the stage for long and costly legal battles. It supposedly contains information about the alleged cover-up and the lack of reporting of Sandusky's behaviors.

It will be interesting to see if Penn St. steps up and settles the civil cases or drags this out...The report could be devastating to Penn State's legal position.

The local media reported a couple of days after the Sandusky verdict, that Penn State announced a victims' program, and that it wanted to work with victims to settle their claims.

Oh what a load of horse shit. This is so transparent, the family's damage control from beyond the grave. They can have a pity party and claim smear campaign but the facts will speak for themselves. What sad and pathetic people. You know, I'd rather be all f*&%ed up like me than all F%^&ed like them.

Gregg Doyel was so right:

"Paterno's statue outside Beaver Stadium has to come down, because otherwise Penn State would be celebrating a man who helped talk school officials into leaving Jerry Sandusky alone in 2001, letting an alleged pedophile escape detection for another decade, giving that alleged pedophile -- and it's not "alleged" anymore -- unfettered access to campus for another decade"

my thoughts exactly when I read it--so self serving. Denial of abusing someone or denial of turning away from someone being abused equal the same--coward and lacking of character.

yup, according to what i read on the freeh report, paterno knew since 98.... the family is trying to protect the image... but perhaps there is a chance that joe never told his family and they are just in the dark as the rest of us, however doing like a family would and protect their own.. can't blame them for that even though it's obvious now that the 4 head guys at psu knew since 98 and pretty much did nothing... *shakes head*... awful...

just read the summary--so sad for all those boys because so many turned away and tried to protect the institution and their own place in the institution. how many boys could have been spared?

The tragedy is only compounded by the fact that failing to report suspicion of abuse to the authorities is only a misdemeanor in Pennsylvania!

In clear, calm, concise and unrelenting words, a report from an independent investigation into Penn State's handling of the Jerry Sandusky sexual molestation case assigned blame in harsh terms to a wide-ranging group of high-ranking officials.

From iconic football coach Joe Paterno, to now fired president Graham Spanier, to a detached Board of Trustees, the failures, lack of concern and ceding of oversight, no one escaped blame in failing to stop Sandusky's 15-year plus reign of terror in central Pennsylvania.

"The most saddening finding by the Special Investigative Counsel is the total and consistent disregard by the most senior leaders at Penn State for the safety and welfare of Sandusky's child victims," the Freeh Commission report, released Thursday morning, reads. "The most powerful men at Penn State failed to take any steps for 14 years to protect the children who Sandusky victimized."

Institutional neglect and the kind of institutional callousness that was shown at PSU is overwhelming...However, what makes me even angrier are the Joe Paterno apologists...That kind of blind hero worship I can't understand and can't tolerate...

Also...I saw Paterno's son last night on ESPN...He said the Freeh report was incomplete and jumped to conclusions...Really? I mean REALLY? It cost $6.5 million dollars, interviewed hundreds of people and was 267 pages long...not really cursory...I know Paterno's family is hurt...BUT...just remain silent...It would be classier than trying to defend the indefensible.

This is cool. The link to Greg Doyel's article on the Freeh Report has been posted on the front page of National Review Online. nationalreview.com

It's under weblinks in the center of the home page, and you hit "more links" and it shows up.

Read it, read all the scanned in evidence (emails, notes, etc) and anyone who says this thing is "incomplete" hasn't read it in the least.

This thing is damning to the extreme and makes it clear that Joe was talked to frequently about all these matters.

I would not be surprised at all, that "behind" all this sh** is a pedophile ring of unknown numbers. Like a elephant in the livingroom, we simply can't "see" it, nor does anyone want to. Or MAYBE it is "just one pedophile"?

The pedophile ring. Powerful and wealthy people perpetrating child abuse. There have to be many of these going on. Why don't our law enforcement people do anything? Arresting a few perpetrators every 6 months doesn't "get it". Are their hands tied?

sometimes I think I should not read or listen to the news on Sandusky, it sets me off, anger, hurt and pain. but what really gets me every institution has done the same thing, from the Catholic Church to PSU--complicity to protect the perp and let the children suffer, a never ending cycle. At least the world is learning but is anyone listening?

The truly sad part is that ole Gerry won't live long enough to name the high-boys who were Second-mile-pen customers.

Hmm. Since I'm not a survivor, I have to ask: would not have one of the victims that testified said something if there were others involved?

Just wondering. Go easy on me. :^)))

Someone might have to take the statue removal into his own hands.

Does anyone have a monster truck with a wench?
