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.

What I want to know is how Corbett is still the governor or better yet how he became governor in the firs place ! When does he get charged for his part in the cover up . He was just as guilty as the rest of them .

What Purpose does hurting the kids who play tioday have anything to do with this matter. Certainly many dropped the ball on this tragic situation but once again what purpose does sanctioning the football program serve? Criminally ivestigate all involved includind Corbutt but why punish the kids because of this monster pervert and those complicit in the alleged cover up? And BTW I am not a Penn State fan and never was but none of these sanctions mane any sense.
