Fox News reported on a study of Paterno’s actions after he was made aware of misconduct by his employees.
The excerpt notes the following findings:
Again and again, the 269-page report by Freeh’s group showed how Penn State officials had a “callous and shocking disregard for child victims.” They lied, then lied about their lies.
Even now, the loyalty to the lie about Paterno being a man of integrity (despite evidence proving he lied to a grand jury regarding his knowledge of the 1998 investigation) is galling.
Trust and integrity go hand in hand in leadership.
*Do you feel that Paterno’s actions should be weighted as heavily as the perpetrator? Why or why not?
