A CNN report disclosing emails between Penn State administrators on the subject of Jerry Sandusky’s child sexual abuse have caused more outrage and are sure to further batter the declining reputation of the school.

From the CNN report:

“The only downside for us is if the message (to Sandusky) isn’t ‘heard’ and acted upon, and we then become vulnerable for not having reported it,” Spanier purportedly writes.

That was from then Penn State president Graham Spanier.

More from the report:

The alleged e-mails among Spanier, Schultz, 62, and former Athletic Director Tim Curley, 57, never mention Sandusky by name, instead referring to him as “the subject” and “the person.” Children that Sandusky brought on campus –some of whom might have been victims — are referred to as “guests.”

There seemed to be no thought to the children who were victims of this horrible abuse. How disgusting.

And, former head coach Joe Paterno looks increasingly worse with each passing hour.

At this point, it looks like Penn State will be traveling a long, brutal road of litigation and negative publicity.
