It all began, as everyone knows, after the unraveling of the Penn State scandal. First, we fired Joe Paterno, then we took down his statue, and now, we’re apparently after Neil Diamond too. Just more of Penn State’s futile attempts to fix the problem without addressing the causes.
Let’s get to the facts. Something extremely tragic occurred at Penn State, and worse, the people in charge allowed that to happen by doing nothing. Yet, who is being punished? Not those individuals who blatantly ignored the reports they heard, but instead, us! When I say us, I’m not only speaking of current students, but rather anyone associated with Penn State – faculty and alumni alike.
In fact, starting this semester alumni are no longer allowed to use Penn State Hazleton’s facilities. How much more must we (who had nothing to do with it) suffer? Stop attacking the innocent and finally get justice for the victims by punishing those deserving of it.
