Penn State Takes Down Paterno Statue.....
« on: July 22, 2012, 10:26:28 AM »


The statue of Penn State's late, disgraced former football coach Joe Paterno has been taken down, after university officials announced early Sunday its decision to remove it.

"I now believe that, contrary to its original intention, coach Paterno's statue has become a source of division and an obstacle to healing in our university and beyond," university president Rodney Erickson said in a statement. "I believe that, were it to remain, the statue will be a recurring wound to the multitude of individuals across the nation and beyond who have been the victims of child abuse.".....snip~

Good. They should melt it down and sell it for scrap metal, give the profits to the real victims
Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. -Eisenhower
