Should Penn State Tear Down Paterno Statue [POLL]

This has been a very emotional issue for me.


For those who don’t know, I am a Penn State graduate.  And until last week, I have easily been the Tri-State’s most-vocal Joe Paterno supporter.  But with the information that came to light in last week’s Freeh Report, I’m no longer comfortable defending the former Pennsylvania hero and football coach.  I could live with Joe allegedly “passing the buck” for his superiors to deal with…  But I’m not OK with a football coach actively taking part in covering up a string of child molestations.


The controversy at Penn State has now shifted to a statue.  A life-size statue of the iconic Penn State figure that sits outside of Beaver Stadium, and has for as long as I can remember.  Some people want it torn down because of his role in the cover up.  Some want it left standing as a tribute to the late coach who led the Nittany Lions for over 60 years.  The statue even has its own security team because of this intense controversy.  The school has not officially decided what to do with the statue.  What do you think should be done with the statue?
