Joe Paterno statue is taken down from its home at Beaver Stadium, State College, PA.  Before dawn, physical plant workers from the University,  construction vehicles and 30 police arrived shortly after dawn Sunday. They barricaded the street and sidewalks near the statue, erected a chain-link fence then concealing the statue with a blue tarp.  There were students who were camped and protesting the removal of the iconic remembrance. Penn State president Rodney Erickson issued this statement.

Coach Paterno’s statue has become a source of division and an obstacle to healing in our university and beyond,” Erickson said in the statement. “For that reason, I have decided that it is in the best interest of our university and public safety to remove the statue and store it in a secure location. I believe that, were it to remain, the statue will be a recurring wound to the multitude of individuals across the nation and beyond who have been the victims of child abuse.”

The statue, outside Beaver Stadium, nearly 7 feet tall and weighing more than 900 pounds, was built-in 2001. Paterno had over a 61-year coaching career and was inducted in the Hall of Fame.  Paterno died of cancer on Jan. 22, 2012 at age 85. The statue removal is in response to public pressure in the Jerry Sandusky child rape scandal at occurred in the Penn State Football locker rooms among other places.

PSU Extreme Makeover Edition. We’re RENOVATING the Sandusky Rape Showers Really did I read this correctly?

Sorry not good enough. I am cringing in sadness and fear. How can you erase the crimes repeatedly committed to young boys with a renovation? Who are these people making these decisions? Who is in charge the Board of Trustees? Please reflect not only in your community but to the American people.

I want the reality Show Extreme Makeover to go to Penn State University Campus so we can view the complete demolition of every building associated with this horrific crime against children. Now, the Nation can try to heal. This is not just the Penn State Alumni that has been affected but anyone that has children, anyone that has went to a College football game. Anyone that has felt a terrible moment because of this horrendous crime against the innocent. We need to start to heal. The hell hole the perp Sandusky and other people in high positions that assisted him. Turn their backs and let the perp roam free on campus. The billions of dollars in revenue due to the Division 1, PSU football program for over a decade was in jeopardy if they did not cover up. Sandusky did not become a perp in the 1990’s.  Let us stop fooling ourselves.

I want it bulldozed down, completely now, no remodeling.
The University has the money from all those years you compromised the lives of hundreds of children to rape and abuse.
How could you shower in there. Could you?
All football offices moved to another building. Bring in the heavy equipment. There will be good Christian men that will be elated to assist in the demolition. New construction jobs will be created in the State of Pennsylvania.
Fly in the Pope from Rome and Bless the entire new building.
I do not think that would work though.

Bring down that statue. Give it to his family to place and cover in their basement. They took the halo off of the mural, GMAB. Wait, what was a halo doing on a person to begin with?  I associated halos with Angels. Joe Pa was not an angel on Earth. Let us not dispute that issue.

Take down his name everywhere on that campus and in the United State except on his tombstone. Joe Paterno negotiated raise, exit after learning of Jerry Sandusky investigation He knew what was going on when the perp was arrested.  Mr. Paterno was to be paid $3 million at the end of the 2011 season if he agreed it would be his last. Interest-free loans totaling $350,000 that the university had made to Mr. Paterno over the years would be forgiven as part of the retirement package. He would also have the use of the university’s private plane and a luxury box at Beaver Stadium for him and his family to use over the next 25 years.  Jo Pa knew the silent torture house he built was tumbling down before him very quickly. It was time for the University to pay up now for his cover up. Joe Pa was the main instrument and he did not sing to campus police or the state investigators.
He died b/c he knew he was wrong. God said it is time to go Joe.

No Football for PSU, the Death Penalty for as many years possible, NCAA has to step this up now. If this law isn’t in the books, make one now and implement it. Other Universities will support this sanction. Let the University try to sue the NCAA.  Make sure there is a judge in place to let it drag on for years. There have been other Universities have been denied bowl games and scholarships for fewer crimes or recruiting violations.

Let the current Football players on scholarship transfer to other Universities without a red shirt year. It is not their fault they were recruited into a child molestation athletic ring and  turn your back policy to child rape. Stop pointing fingers and do the right thing. Current students can find something else to do on Saturday’s like study.  If the students want to attend a football game, bus them to another University game at their choice. This is just for starters.

In This I pray, AMEN.
