What the HELL is wrong with the students of Penn State? Acting like a pack of bloodthirsty piranha REALLY shows how mature the future generation is. Rolling over a news van will get the press on your side. NOT.
I understand that the a$$hats at Penn State used Coach Joe Paterno as a sacrificial lamb. As I understand it, he did what he was supposed to do. Reported what he knew to his, then, respected superior, and then Paterno went back to his job. He is not an investigator. And he was burned for not doing a job, that is not his and he is not trained for, by the board of trustees.
BUT THAT DOES NOT GIVE THESE CHILDREN THE RIGHT TO RIOT. I'll admit I never understood the worship of the alter of football (or any other sport), but even that worship, when betrayed, does NOT give these INFANTILE students the right to riot.
Each and every student that can be identified should be forced to make restitution, do the legal punishment (jail time, community service, whatever fits the crime they are identified doing), and be EXPELLED.
Really rolling a news van will get Paterno back in the (coaching) drivers seat.
Rioting and the destruction of private (not Penn State) property will change things for the better.
Do these STUPID crowd mentality CRIMINALS know that if 'the book is not thrown at them', then it will be like telling all the other immature idiots that this kind of destruction is accepted?
To the students who were involved:
Do you realize that you are playing the game the board of trustees wants you to? Now everyone will be looking at the riots and NOT the board of trustees.
