Observe: Penn State students amass downtown in support of the recently-fired Head Football Coach Joe Paterno. They’ve pulled down a lightpost and flipped a news van. Students are standing on top of it and screaming, “We want Joe!” Students also threw bottles and rocks, hitting one officer and a photographer in the head.


Why? Because Joe Paterno and other high-ranking officials are suspected of covering up for a child rapist. Former Defensive Coach Jerry Sandusky was arrested on multiple counts of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, corruption of minors, endangering the welfare of a child, indecent assault and unlawful contact with a minor, as well as single counts of aggravated indecent assault and attempted indecent assault. Two Penn State officials were indicted for perjury and the university president was fired with Paterno.
Let me repeat: Penn State students and the community are rioting in support of this coach, not because they’re completely horrified this happened under Paterno’s watch.
