Penn State and the Paterno family have buried the hatchet, according to a pair of statements released jointly Friday.
Sue Paterno, widow of longtime former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno, said the eight years since the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal came to light “have been difficult.”
I’m glad her heart goes out to the kids who were abused by a man who was enabled by her late husband.
“The last eight years have been difficult, made more so by the opinions in the Freeh Report, which my family and I believe was deeply flawed, reached unsupported conclusions about Joe and unjustly criticized the culture of Penn State,” she said. “The university has made clear that Mr. Freeh’s opinions about Joe were never endorsed by Penn State. By confirming this position and reaching this understanding, the leadership of Penn State has acted in the best interests of the university, and for this I am grateful.”
Oh. I guess it’s easy to forget who the real victims were here.
