Once FBI director, Louis Freeh, who thoroughly investigated the Penn State scandal released his full report, the world was able to finally figure out what exactly happened inside the Penn State locker rooms.
In Freeh’s 267-page documented report, shocking information about Penn State coach Joe Paterno was also found. It appeared that even though Paterno knew of Ex-Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky’s horrendous crimes, coach Paterno turned his head away multiple occasions and disregarded one of the most infamous crimes that ever occurred in sports history.
Coach Joe Paterno turned the other cheek for one main reason, to somehow still protect his coaching legacy. Now that the Freeh report has been released, many people are adamantly requesting for the Joe Paterno statue located inside the Penn State campus to be taken down.
Even with all the commotion, Penn State University along with the board of trustees has made the decision to leave the statue alone for the meantime. The university will make its ultimate decision after a few months when all the media surrounding the topic has subsided.
It’s seems this particular decision by the school hasn’t actually been accepted well by the people. On Tuesday morning, an aerial banner was reportedly flying above the Penn State campus.
The banner carried a warning signal, which stated:
“TAKE THE STATUE DOWN OR WE WILL”
Clearly, there are other people out there that intend to take matters into their own hands.
