Although I'm glad to see Paterno and the university president go down for this, I can't believe that this guy is still a coach - he should have been the first to go.
If he didn't intercede in order to stop the actual assault in progress, that's bad enough. But to not call the police immediately is inexcusable.
When you witness something like this, you don't inform your boss - you inform the authorities.
How the hell does he live with himself?

Assistant coach who reported Penn State incident threatened, won't be at game

(CNN) -- A Penn State assistant football coach who reportedly told Joe Paterno in 2002 he witnessed a young boy being sexually assaulted in a shower won't be at Saturday's Nebraska game because of "multiple threats," the university athletics website said Thursday night.
A graduate assistant at the time, Mike McQueary told a grand jury he had witnessed former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, now 67, assaulting the boy at the campus football complex.
Questions over how university officials responded to reports of alleged abuse cost coaching legend Paterno and university President Graham Spanier their jobs. McQueary has been criticized for not calling police, but he has not faced any legal charges.
According to a grand jury report, the graduate assistant entered a locker room on a Friday night in 2002 to stow away some sneakers.
"As the graduate student entered the locker room doors, he was surprised to find the lights and showers on," the grand jury report stated. "He then heard rhythmic, slapping sounds."
The assistant looked into the shower and "saw a naked boy ... whose age he estimated to be 10 years old, with his hands up against the wall, being subjected to anal intercourse by a naked Sandusky," the grand jury report stated.
The graduate assistant reported the incident to Paterno, who in turn alerted Athletic Director Timothy Curley, Pennsylvania Attorney General Linda Kelly said earlier this week.

And possibly criminal. Police recently arrested a Catholic bishop for the same. I see no reason why the same shouldn't happen here.

And Stewart rightfully went after Paterno's idiot supporters:

I agree...he should have been the first to go.
How someone can witness something like that and not stop it immediately is beyond me. He is a big man, he should have beat the snot out of that coach and held him down until police arrived.
I'm a 135 pound woman and I guarantee you...I would have stopped that monster!

I think it’s a reasonable assumption that a young assistant football coach had also recently been a player himself and, as such, should have been in good enough shape to step in and stop a 50-something year-old man from assaulting a 10 year-old boy.

Exactly.
Let's just say he was a 100 pound weakling and the old man would have pummeled him.....SO WHAT!!!!!!!!!
I would gladly take a beating if it would stop him from raping a little boy.

How anyone seeing that and not intervening is unbelievable. Anyone that kept their mouth shut knowing this was going on should be prosecuted. Evil or Very Mad

He's on leave - finally! Joe Pa got a lawyer - does he want his job back, or just his halo?

From a good op-ed in today's NYT:

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/13/opinion/sunday/douthat-the-devil-and-joe-paterno.html?ref=opinion

And not even a lifetime of heroism can make up for leaving a single child alone, abandoned to evil, weeping in the dark.
