Here's a great graphic showing the timeline of events in the case: http://www.collegian.psu.edu/

I think there's a big difference in what was known locally and what has become known nationally in the last few days.
I fully expect Sandsuky to be found dead of a self-inflicted wound within the next few days.
I also can't fathom how anyone in good conscience could "report" this incident to University "authorities" and then basically wash their hands of the issue like Paterno appeared to do. A man of his staure could've put an end to these disgusting acts, but because he didn't they continued and as we all know there are probably MANY unreported victims.
As far as I'm concerned, based on the evidence at hand, if you defend Paterno you should perhaps have your head examined.
Sick, just sick. In all honesty, I don't trust any adult (coaches or anyone of authority) who has full, unguarded access to kids.
And Paterno should be fired.
I'm looking forward to hear what Lavar has to say about this today.
You guys wanting to hear from Lavar - Wise interviewed him for his article that was published in the WP this morning:
“I knew him the way I knew him; he was always someone I admired, respected and looked up to,” LaVar Arrington, who played for Sandusky in the late 1990s at the university nicknamed “Linebacker U,” said by telephone Saturday afternoon. “His foundation has helped tons of kids.”
But the former Redskins Pro Bowler and Penn State all-American linebacker, who is a contributor to washingtonpost.com, also added: “I’m not declaring anything. I’m neutral right now.”
“Because I am also a father and because the thought of one of my kids coming home and saying something bad happened to them like that, I can’t even think about it. I don’t want to discount the stories of the families and their children. Innocent or guilty, he’s tarnished himself by this. I’m very disappointed it’s actually even a possibility.”

If allegations about GA reporting to Paterno and then Paterno reporting to Curley are true, Paterno is done. Essentially 36 hours elapsed and NO ONE reported the incident to the police. This isn't stealing team sweatshirts, giving money to recruits, or getting a car from a booster. No way he survives this. I'd be shocked if he coaches in their bowl game.
I'm just at a loss as to why apparently *nobody* went directly to the police on this. This is something you call 911 about ASAP if you see it, not something you report to your boss.
