Statue taken down

Gone to the bowels of beaver stadium. Small victory for the victims.

Re: Statue taken down

Obviously had to be taken down merely as a security measure with all the recent threats to damage plus others vowing to put their lives in harms way to protect.

As widely reported...Paterno's name will remain on the campus library because it "symbolizes the substantial and lasting contributions to the academic life and educational excellence that the Paterno family has made to Penn State University!! With all this nationwide publicity many folks outside our Penn State community who really didn't know all Paterno did for the good of the University are now being apprised!! A positive resulting from a negative situation!!

Re: Statue taken down

I dont see it as a lynch mob. Simply tying to put unpleasant reminders behind them and move on. Its a shame that it had to come to this but people have to take responseibility for their own actions and in this case not 1 of them did at the time.

Another bad decision IMO.... Just shows how money can expunge the actions or failure to take action that people have done! Seems those accepting to this action are putting a price tag on a persons...A CHILD'S.... innocence! If they want separation, make a COMPLETE separation!

Yup...I imagine that will be the next target.
The hard scrubbing isn't done yet.

Re: Statue taken down

why did they have to take it down? they could have just turned it around so, "it looked the other way!"

You want me to put my ear to the ground? Listen for hoof beats? Look for broken twigs?
