Joe Paterno Dead

The legendary Penn State football coach — who was recently involved in a major scandal — suffered from lung cancer. So sad.

Joe Paterno, beloved former Penn State University football coach, has passed away.

Joe, who was 85, passed away on Jan. 22 due to complications from lung cancer, his family tells TMZ.

Joe coached at Penn State for 46 years. He was fired in Nov. 2011 after sexual abuse allegations involving his former assistant coach, Jerry Sandusky, came to light.

We wish his family the best during this difficult time.

Did you hear that they are going to turn the Joe Paterno statue 180 degrees so that he can look the other way?

Betrayed Parents

What a shame that Joe won’t be able to fulfill his responsibility to testify in court about the child molester that he was covering up for. Well, this way, he won’t have to serve time in prison for Criminal Negligence, Cover-Ups, and so forth.

You would be surprised at the people who are easily manipulated by and cower down to those who harbor child molesters.
Take Ohio Governor John Kasich for instance.
The administrators at Worthington Christian Schools (WCS) got caught while harboring several known repeat child molesters during the school’s 10-year Conspiracy of Criminal Negligence, Deception, Fraud, and Cover-Ups committed against thousands of students and parents.
See ABCsOfBetrayal.com for the overwhelming and irrefutable evidence including audio recordings.
John Kasich, whose very own daughters were put in danger, let the administrators get away with it.
See ‘Cowardice Is Contagious’ at ABCsOfBetrayal.com/Cowardice.htm
Those WCS administrators remain in power, remain as a serious threat to unsuspecting consumers, and remain as horrible examples to all students, including Emma and Reese Kasich.

Penn State’s reputation is trashed due to Paterno’s failing as a human being. The Joe Paterno legacy will forever be tied to Sandusky.

Penn State’s reputation is tarnished due to SANDUSKY’s failing as a human being. Paterno just happens to be the guy who should have done more. People seem to forget that Sandusky molested those boys, NOT Paterno.
