An independent investigative task force hired by Penn State determined that Joe Paterno knowingly concealed information about Jerry Sandusky's child abuse.

Yes, Paterno participated in a 13-year conspiracy to hide Jerry Sandusky's sexual crimes against children from authorities. This according to a new report issued by investigators connected to the Sandusky case.

Joe Pa should forevermore be remembered as the guy who covered up numerous cases of disgusting abuse against innocent children...not as a guy who won some football games.
