PENN STATE: Rioting for the wrong people

Penn State students rioting for fired coach Joe Paterno and fired President Graham Spanier sends a troubling message – that sex with children has become a low priority and should be disregarded as normal behavior.

Perhaps these rioters need to interact with an abused child and explain to that child why an abuser gets to be placed in a higher position while the abused child is ignored and not cared for.

PATERNO: Misplaced priorities in ‘Happy Valley’

It was reported that a riot took place at “Happy Valley,” home of Penn State University.

College students, the cream of American culture, were among the rioters. Certainly the students were demonstrating against what was allegedly done to the victimized children – right?

Please tell me they weren’t rioting so coach Joe Paterno could be on the sideline for one more game.

They were? You’ve got to be kidding.
