Penn St. readies 'Blue Out' to fight child abuse

A group of Penn State officials and students is fighting to turn the horrible negatives of the past week into a positive this coming gameday.

Nittany Lions fans and students traditionally dress in white for big games as part of their nationally-recognized "white-out." But for the team's matchup against Nebraska this week, the school is asking those in attendance to leave the white at home and dress in blue instead to support the fight against child abuse.

"In addition to being the color of our team's home game jerseys, blue represents the color of bruises that have too often been neglected," the school said in a student-directed Facebook post reprinted by the Daily News. "Let's make national news for our collective actions to show solidarity with both the victims and our fellow classmates on the field."

To that end, area store McLanahan's is selling a navy "Stop Child Abuse, Blue Out Nebraska" t-shirt, with all proceeds from the sale of the shirt benefitting Prevent Child Abuse Pennsylvania.

Penn State alumni are also rallying to the cause of fighting child abuse in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky allegations, joining with the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network (RAINN) in a fund-raising effort designed to raise a dollar for every PSU alumnus.

Beaver Stadium will look a little funny in navy (or patches of both blue and white). But after the images out of State College Wednesday night, it'll still be an image 100 percent worth the effort.

The facts of the dissappearance of the DA include that the hard drive of his laptop was, was missing. Your theory would require him ave taken that out and discarded it before dissapearing forever
True,  I didn't think of that. It does seem like an odd thing to do, drive down to the rivers edge, remove the hard drive from your laptop and then discard them separately. They did find both the laptop and hard drive, about 100 yards from each other in the water.  So, if he then killed himself, he would have presumably walked away and drowned himself somewhere else in the river? Weird thing to do, how far could he have walked and how come they never found the body? Yet they were able to find the laptop in the river? 
Another possibility, he drove down there followed by someone in another car, discarded the laptop and hard drive in the river and then someone else in another car drove him away to another site where he was "done-in".

Disagree with DA Gricar Suicide Theory

The facts of the dissappearance of the DA include that the hard drive of his laptop was, was missing. Your theory would require him ave taken that out and discarded it before dissapearing forever.

The more obvious crime that you should attach to a missing public defender is pretty obvious, and requires less of a narrative into the mind of the missing.  Plus, we now that the cover up runs very deep, and the extent of the participants in the abuse is still expanding.


In short, mix together poweful people and institutions, wide scale sexual abuse, a whole lot of money on the line, and one missing DA.  Suicide is not the first thing that came to my mind.

The DA didn't want to be the one responsible for bringing down the great Penn State program, so he allowed Sandusky to walk away and continue his sexual predation of children.  No wonder the SOB disappeared and was declared deceased.  Probably couldn't live with himself for allowing this whole God-forsaken mess to continue at the time.
Excellent point, Yup, DA Gricar is most likely at the bottom of the Susquehanna river by his own hand because of the guilt. He could have done something in 1998This could have stopped in 1998, Gircar went missing in 2005. I bet during those seven years, as he learned of more and more Sandusky victims, he was overwhelmed with guilt.  No one was bigger than JoePa, certainly not the DA of small Centre County.

You wanna talk coverup, lets take it all the way.  How about the DA Gricar who chose not to pursue criminal charges against Sandusky in 1998, despite his confession to the mother of a child he "showered" with about his conduct with her son.  There were police officers in the next room listening as he admitted to the mom that he lathered up her son with soap in the shower, and then gave him a bear hug.  This information is turned over to Gricar by the officers, and he decides there's not enough evidence to charge Sandusky with a crime.  Are you kidding me?!!?  THIS is where the coverup of Sandusky's conduct began.  The DA didn't want to be the one responsible for bringing down the great Penn State program, so he allowed Sandusky to walk away and continue his sexual predation of children.  No wonder the SOB disappeared and was declared deceased.  Probably couldn't live with himself for allowing this whole God-forsaken mess to continue at the time.

Too little too late. This is simply a lame attempt to save face. Key members of this university, board of directors, football staff, etc...all covered this up for too many years. Everyone should be fired and jailed.

How can that University let Mike McQueary rome the sidelines (even for his own safety)   what a sham!    He's a huge Football player and a coward who wouldn't protect those who can't protect themself.    If he's not on adminstrative leave or attends the game on Sat.  It shows the Univeristy considers football more important than child molestation!

What a Joke!


Hey ya'll. Sorry that our University was involved in a cover up that went straight up from janitors and grad assistants all the way to, hmmm...to be determined; the trustees? donors? 

Sorry that this indiscretion led to the sexual abuse of 20 (and counting) boys who were already coming from bad situations.  Our bad.  Was that wrong? 


But look at these neat-o blue shirts we're all wearing.  Isn't this crazy, these colurs are for away games, but it's actually a home game this weekend.

At Penn State we are crazy for stopping child abuse; especially after we get caught.  Haha. Let's go and riot after we crush these beer cans on our heads.  Go Whatever!

I love the idea.  I would love it even more if the Penn St players were allowed to wear all blue uniforms that day.  Blue pants, blue helmets with a white stripe.  Anything to join the modern world and aid in child abuse awareness.
