As they should be.
The NCAA is still waiting around before it makes a decision to reprimand and penalize Penn State University for failing to act appropriately to allegations of Jerry Sandusky sexually abusing kids.
Now, a report written by former FBI director Louis Freech has been made public, condemning PSU for a "total disregard for the safety and welfare” of the children abused.
Included in the report for this gross negligence is Penn State president Graham Spanier, former vice president Gary Schultz, former football coach Joe Paterno and athletics director Tim Curley.
Here's what the NCAA vice president had to say about the report:
"Like everyone else, we are reviewing the final report for the first time today. As President Emmert wrote in his November 17th letter to Penn State President Rodney Erickson and reiterated this week, the university has four key questions, concerning compliance with institutional control and ethics policies, to which it now needs to respond. Penn State's response to the letter will inform our next steps, including whether or not to take further action. We expect Penn State's continued cooperation in our examination of these issues."
We're absolutely sickened by everyone involved, not just Sandusky himself.
Failing to act on any of this stuff should absolutely be punishable — if not by a judge, then at least the NCAA.
The NCAA is looking into if the concealing of the allegations will lead to a finding of lack of institutional control. The NCAA looks favorably at schools that work with the organization to uncover all the facts in an investigation.
We just want everyone involved to answer for this.
