The very bad place former FBI director Louis -- headed up the investigation.
The most powerful leaders at Penn state university.
Miss -- stand there Schultz Paterno and curly.
Repeatedly concealed facts relating to send us -- child abuse from the authorities.
The board of trustee is the Penn State community.
And the public at -- That of course opens up the potential for massive lawsuits against Penn State you know attorney and Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly so how to trio arrived at that conclusion.
-- they've investigated for months they've reviewed over three million documents they've interviewed several witnesses.
All but Joseph Paterno who died.
After he was in of these allegations first surfaced -- last year.
And it's very clear I mean they produce the emails in this report that showed these four men knew.
Or had reason to now.
Exactly what was going on with this with this and asking and did nothing because of a two things number one they wanted to be humane.
To Jerry sandusky the mall Lester.
And number two they were worried about the bad publicity for Penn State that is the conclusion of Louie -- That these guys when confronted with an allegation that this guy -- -- was raking a child in 1993.
Decided not to do anything about it not to report it to the board of trustees and to move on.
And in 2001.
Did the same thing when seen allegations.
Surfaced and during that time and -- after they allowed that man who now they had to allegations of sexual abuse.
Against to come on the campus with an all access pass.
Bringing with him young boys allowing him access to the showers.
With the young boys other three.
Executives at Penn State.
Obviously Paterno is he ceased.
Can they be charged as a crime they cat and probably will be obviously they -- listening to this yet in this is the so this -- an -- as an air right -- and the other -- currently are already facing criminal charges for perjuring themselves allegedly before the grand jury trying to make it sound like -- -- -- but now -- did gets up in the sense that they could be charged with other crimes felonies okay failure report brought I mean it's.
It's clear now from this documentation and from the rip rip the free report.
That there was a consciousness of wrongdoing on their part when it came to sandusky and a motivation to covered up for the good the football program.
And the university in not only that they now talk about it there's anecdotal evidence about a -- -- here's how they allegedly witnessed it right and didn't want to come or because they said if you went into the -- -- talk about sandusky was like talking of the president united I think here's that here's how bad it is.
If they wanted to protect the football program in the university could -- just quietly fired sandusky just get him out right I mean they should of course supported him.
To the authorities when the first allegation came up that's what any decent person would do.
But they didn't even do that as you pointed out the enables him to do more.
And more really happened to worry more theoretical right -- -- control it on on his conscience -- On his conscience and if there is an -- Joseph Paterno is gonna have to explain that.
All right -- he's dead and his reputation is shot and he was once one of the most respected athletic.
People in the country he's done and the other three may go to prison and they should go to -- all three of now this is almost exactly like the Catholic Church scandal almost exactly.
Because the same modus operandi mindset was in we don't want all embarrass the church all right.
Would not gonna report just that he authorities remove these guys around these predatory priests are right.
And hope we can get away witnesses say he has -- accidentally pass is that send us exactly the same thing.
But here's the difference where it's a Catholic Church.
Tens of millions probably hundreds of millions dollars.
The people of Pennsylvania gonna have to pay this bill because Penn State is a public college and it's gonna get into the hundreds of millions of dollars because anybody.
Okay now can say I was molested in this university better settle we have.
And and that is why the people at Penn State and Indy community need to be.
Even more angry with these are I think they all that but it's not just because it is it's mostly and for first and foremost about these little boys whose lives of course but it is also there's a reason we have these obligations on -- I mean from the federal obligations it's not just a moral thing.
For reporting duties it it's -- stop and protect a university like this and those who are my visit from having had a peaceful in the commonwealth.
Pennsylvania now I mean their tax money is going to gold to.
These boys -- -- men now who were molested okay that university shot.
Penn State's not coming back that are gonna come back athletically and are gonna come back in the court of public opinion in our lifetime are they're -- So it is such a disaster.
It is it is just almost beyond comprehension last four I think that that report.
Put it -- and they -- that these guys were concerned about the university.
And about the mall Lester but never demonstrated any can they learn and they -- -- -- child victim and I'll go a step further.
-- an arrest was made and -- -- -- -- for the concerned about themselves.
Because they knew that Paterno knew we hired send us -- others knew that this was it and they want the scrutiny on themselves.
