Penn State Alumni Turn Out to Support Paterno

200 supporters of Joe Paterno met at the Radisson Hotel Valley Forge on Friday to view a film about the alleged framing of the popular Penn State coach.

According to Philly.com, several hundred alumni of Pennsylvania State University braved the snow on Friday, Jan. 25 to attend a meeting at the Radisson Hotel Valley Forge in King of Prussia aimed at restoring iconic coach Joe Paterno's reputation following the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse case.

The event was reportedly organized by football hall of fame inductee Franco Harris, who played for Paterno at Penn State more than 40 years ago.

The group watched part of a film reportedly in production alleging that Paterno was framed for his reported part in the early cover up of Sandusky's crimes. See some of the film in the Video section of this article.

please enough is enough - let's not make a celebrity out of a man that covered up child molestation

Too late, he's getting poked in the butt with pitchforks where he is now.

As Attorney General, Tom Corbett received over $647,000 in campaign contributions from members of the Second Mile Foundation, while only assigning one investigator to the case. Meanwhile, at the same time, he assigned 14 investigators to Bill Deweese and spent more than 5 years trying to get him. It is difficult to believe these campaign contributions did not improperly influence his decision to not file charges against Jerry Sandusky. The state police trooper who initially handled the Clinton County case against Jerry Sandusky believed there was enough evidence from a teenage boy -- known as Victim One-- to charge Sandusky with indecent assault. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ji7UQhr3z3M

I've found that when I go out to support someone involved with child molestation I like to try to avoid getting a newspaper article written about it.

He did not molest any children and when an incident was reported to him he escalated it up which is what you are supposed to do. The man is completely innocent. Just because a police officer thought there was enough evidence does not make it so. If you go at someone and lose, double jepordy comes in and you can't try that person again. Does no one remember the McMartin Pre-school case of the 80's where many innocent people went to jail and were pilloried for something that never happened. You have to be very careful when you make these kinds of accusations.
