Lock up Jerry Sandusky and throw away the key

November 17, 2011

It was sad to note that even though Jerry Sandusky's boss, Joe Paterno, had heard at least one report that his subordinate was sexually abusing young boys, he never told police. Apparently he hoped the problem would just disappear.

Messrs. Sandusky and Paterno, along with the president of the university, were all fired when the story came out. But despite the actions taken by the school's board of trustees, there is no way that Mr. Sandusky's alleged sexual attacks on young boys should just disappear. He should be tried and sentenced to prison for the rest of his life.
