Penn State Having Hard Time Coming To Terms With Sandusky Case
STATE COLLEGE, Pennsylvania- A day after that bombshell child sex abuse report, the Penn State community is still trying to come to grips with it.
The independent report from former FBI Director Louis Freeh says legendary football coach Joe Paterno and other top school officials concealed the wrong doing by Jerry Sandusky, because they were more worried about the school's image than the victims.
Paterno was fired when the scandal broke and died of lung cancer a few months later.
But many Penn State alumni, fans, students and his former players still love him.
Some students and alumni think Paterno is a scapegoat, and when the dust settles, he'll be remembered as a great college football coach.
But there also are calls to remove the Paterno statue from the Penn State campus.
Sandusky still hasn't been sentenced, and lawsuits against the school are in the works.
