Do you think the Jerry Sandusky pedophile case should be a criminal matter or a football matter?
The Governor of Pennsylvania is suing the NCAA, saying they have no jurisdiction over the case. Jerry Sandusky molested at least ten boys, often luring them to the Penn State men’s football locker room with the possibility of hanging out with their heroes—the football players. He would shower with them, and make them do… other things.
The Governor says this is a criminal matter. Sandusky is a criminal and anyone who helped him is a criminal, and they should be penalized in the criminal justice system.
The NCAA says this is a football matter. The Penn State football program protected Sandusky from justice in order to save the reputation of the program. Therefore, the program should be punished by the NCAA.
