Penn State may be trying diligently to fix the Jerry Sandusky/Joe Paterno fiasco, but to some protestors, the damage is evidently permanent and beyond redemption. How else to explain this picture tweeted by Philadelphia news anchor Jim Gardner?



According to Gardner, that's a 1975 graduate of the university burning his diploma, and others have described the situation as multiple protestors doing the same.

Joe Pa is the greatest coach to ever coach the game.  I would dare to say he had any inclination that any sort of activity was going on behind closed doors.  Joe Pa would never had put up with that type of activity had he had knowledge of it REAL KNOWLEDGE.  He didn't build the reputation that he has today by letting things like that happen between his doors or under his nose.  Don't you freat about Joe Pa he will get his say in the matter rather he is told to keep quiet or not.  He was probably going to leave after this year anyway and ride of into the sunset with probably the greatest tenure in all of sports history.  So why not give his remarks on this as he has nothing to hids and nothing to lose.  His reputation is not tarnished in any way by this scandel and never will be.  JOE PA lives on......

hippie protestors, just to correct the spelling.......Universities let a bunch of weirdos through the cracks...You have professors teaching communism is better than democracy....College education is a joke, and it's no wonder stuff like this gets by for many years...

Hippy protestors----afterwards, did the media follow the protestors to the barns, where they got high on acid and sang 'give peace a chance'?

Until protestors burn themselves alive, it's hard to take them seriously...

Let Paterno talk.  Since he is not the subject of this incident, it is just crazy how the hordes are putting Paterno out to hang in the wind.  I  hope he is able to sue all of the fools who have defamed him due to their own moral compass.  None of us were there except the graduate assistant who reported the incident he witnessed to Coach and if you read the testimony it did not show anything reporting other than horsing around.  Being around sports a good deal of my life teams, coaches, trainers, ball boys, equipment staff and everyone has stress relief by pulling pranks, tossing folks in the shower, etc.  if the graduate assistant saw more than that, then he should have called the cops.  As for Mom saying Sandusky admitted to her the abuse of her kid, what happened to HER obligation to take it to the highest power possible?  Dont give me the crap that Paterno was God in Happy Valley, his actions over almost 50 years speak louder than the allegiations and investigations the PA politicians and news folks have been holding up for over 3 years.  I hope if he gets released, he sues the school, state, and gets all of the money he donatede to the school returned to him and his family.  No one thinks Joe Paterno abused any kids, but the focus is on him because the University wants him to move on.  Again, let the man speak if the school has nothing to hide.
