As the announcement came last night that Joe Paterno is out as head football coach at Penn State University, students poured out into the streets to protest the firing.
This was reported by the Centre Daily Times in State College.
Thousands of students filled the streets around Beaver Canyon, later moving toward Old Main, chanting and becoming increasingly belligerent as police donned riot gear and tried to control the crowds. At times, students shouted obscenities against the media and Jerry Sandusky, the former defensive coordinator arrested Saturday on charges of sexually abusing eight boys. Students also were seen on balconies, atop parking garages and in yards, some drinking and some shooting fireworks. Witnesses said some rocks and bottles were thrown, a lamppost was toppled and a news van was knocked over, its windows kicked out.

It appears to me that the immaturity of 18 and 19 year olds is at it's best here. Yes, their football god is gone, but ARE YOU FREAKIN' KIDDING ME! Go back in your dorm rooms and grow the hell up! It is not the end of the world for you or the college. It makes me sick to my stomach to see these students fill the streets to support a man who turned his back on children who were sexually abused by his main man at the time Jerry "The Sandman" Sandusky. No matter how you spin it, they all turned their backs on what "The Sandman" was doing. Hell, he was doing it on school property even after he left his coaching position. Grow the hell up you stupid bastards!
On another note, WBRE TV posted this on Facebook
STATEMENT FROM ATTORNEY FOR SANDUSKY'S ALLEGED VICTIMS: "The board of trustees got it wrong. They should have consulted the victims before making a decision on Mr. Paterno," attorney Ben Andreozzi said in a statement released to the Harrisburg Patriot News. "They should have considered these victims watch TV and are aware of the students' reaction and may not want to be associated with the downfall of Mr. Paterno. The school instead elected to do what it felt was in its own best interest at the time. Isn’t that what put the school in this position in the first place?"
Oh boy! This reeks of softening the blow for big nose Paterno. Now I am taking the gloves off here. I have been nice concerning the old bat but now that is over. I can only be nice for about 24 hours...maybe! If I am one of the parents of these poor kids, I would have blown these guys brains out a long time ago. How can this Attorney even release this statement! ARE YOU FREAKIN' KIDDING ME! At this point, lets round all of these blind mice up and send them to Rikers Island so big bad Leroy Brown can give them the "can" opener routine.
