This morning a very long and comprehensive article by AP reporters into the Sandusky/PSU investigation has been released. If accurate then it would seem that virtually everyone from JoePa to the campus police to the PSU administration and even the local police were very aware of Sandusky's behavior and had been since 1998 and chose to ignore it in the hopes it would simply go away. They all placed the reputation of the football program above the safety of children or so it would seem.
While not excusing his lack of direct action, this does support the argument that the reason McQuery didn't go to the police was because he knew they were already aware of Sandusky and were doing nothing. The culture of silence to protect the football team's reputation was pervasive and God only knows what will be revealed as this investigation continues.
