After Sandusky left the Penn State Football program in 1999, he helped to establish "Second Mile", a program designed to help needy children. The specific charges and details of Sandusky's crimes while disturbing, may only be the surface of this sordid affair.
Evidence is beginning to show that the University President, Graham Spanier, the school's Athletic Director, Tim Curley, Senior Vice President for Finance and Business, Gary Schultz, and even legendary Head Coach Joe Paterno may all have been aware of Sandusky's actions, yet did not report him to authorities and still gave him access to young boys involved in football camps run by Penn State.
Joe Paterno has been the Head Football Coach at Penn State for forty-six years, has built one of the most successful and respected programs in the nation, and he is the winningest coach in the history of Division I NCAA Football. Now, his legacy may be forever tarnished because of his apparent protection of a monster.
