    Freeh's independent investigaition team included a broad array of individuals, including other former law enforcement, who had decades of experience investigating sensitive and sickening crimes.

    Why is it so hard to face clearly-proven facts and be glad when evil is exposed?

    Well whataya know...

    Turns out good ol' JoePa was scamming to get every last penny out of Penn State right up to the very end.

    I hope his wife enjoys the extra cash, knowing what hubby let happen to those little kids.

    If he gets a foursome up for golf I'll bet the other three will all be Catholic Bishops.

    No problem - if they enabled child molesters like JoePa did, they can go straight to hell too.

    Gary, that seems to be pretty well proven in courts of law. JoePa has only been convicted in the court of public opinion. That and a dollar will get you a cup of coffee in a poor cafe.

    The Catholic sex abuse cases are a series of convictions, trials and ongoing investigations into allegations of sex crimes committed by Catholic priests and active members of Roman Catholic orders against children as young as 3 years old with the majority between the ages of 10 and 16.[1] These cases began receiving public attention beginning in the mid-1980s with new cases still being brought forward with the first reported cases in the 1950's.[2] There have been criminal prosecutions of the abusers and civil lawsuits against the church's dioceses and parishes.

    In addition to cases of sodomy, oral penetration, and lewd and sexual acts against a minor, cases have been brought forth against members of the Catholic hierarchy who did not report abuse allegations to the civil authorities. In many cases they deliberately moved sexually abusive priests to other locations where the clergy continued their acts of sexual aggression towards minors. [3] – this has led to a number of fraud cases in the United States, where the Church has been accused of misleading victims by deliberately relocating priests accused of abuse instead of removing them from their positions.[4] In defending their actions, some bishops and psychiatrists contended that the prevailing psychology decades ago suggested that people could be cured of such behavior through counseling.[5][6] This is opposed by the finding that Gerald Fitzgerald, "the founder of a religious order that treats Roman Catholic priests who molest children concluded in the 1950s that offenders were unlikely to change and should not be returned to ministry," and this was discussed with Pope Paul VI (1897 – 1978) and "in correspondence with several bishops."[7]

    Sexual abuse of children under the age of consent by priests receives significant media and public attention in Canada, Ireland, the United States, the United Kingdom, Mexico, Belgium, France, and Germany, while cases have been reported throughout the world. Many of the cases span several decades and are brought forward years after the abuse occurred. In response to this attention, members of the church hierarchy have argued that media coverage has been excessive.[8]

    BishopAccountability.org, an "online archive established by lay Catholics," reports that over 3,000 "civil lawsuits have been filed against the church" in the United States, some of these cases have resulted in multi-million dollar settlements with many claimants.[9] The Roman Catholic Diocese of Dallas paid $30.9 million in 1998 to twelve victims of one priest.[10] In July 2003 the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Louisville paid $25.7 million to "settle child sexual-abuse allegations made in 240 lawsuits naming 34 priests and other church workers."[10] In 2003 the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston also settled a large case for $85 million with 552 alleged victims.[11] In 2004, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange settled nearly 90 cases for $100 million.[12] In April 2007 the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Portland in Oregon agreed to a $75 million settlement with 177 claimants and the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Seattle agreed to a $48 million settlement with more than 160 victims.[13] In July 2007 the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles reached a $660 million agreement with more than 500 alleged victims, in December 2006, the archdiocese had a settlement of 45 lawsuits for $60 million.[14][15] In September 2007 the Roman Catholic Diocese of San Diego reached a $198.1 million "agreement with 144 childhood sexual abuse victims."[16] In July 2008 the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Denver agreed "to pay $5.5 million to settle 18 claims of childhood sexual abuse."[17] The Associate Press estimated the total from settlements of sex abuse cases from 1950-2007 to be more than $2 billion.[15] According to BishopAccountability reports that figure reached more than $3 billion in 2012.[9][7] Addressing "a flood of abuse claims" five dioceses (Tucson, Arizona; Spokane, Washington; Portland, Oregon.; Davenport, Iowa, and San Diego) got bankruptcy protection.[15] Eight Catholic diocese have declared bankruptcy due to sex abuse cases from 2004-2011.[18


    And you think JoePa ain't in good company in Hell?]

    Jim:

    Go ahead and list all the child molesters and enablers you want - they all deserve the same (ultimate) punishment in my eyes.

    But Paterno is a cut above. With more power, adulation and wealth than he could have ever dreamed of, he still chose to let children be molested year after year so he could get even more. And he was scamming for every last penny right to the very end. That's scum right there.

    Had the dirtbag lived, legal experts say he could have been criminally prosecuted too. Hit the link.

    More power, wealth and adulation than the Pope??? BTW I have read the report. I am just not convinced that you would have done any better than Joe or the Pope if you had been in their shoes or sandals as the case may be.

    JIM, you don't know me and I don't feel the need to convince you of anything. Continue to admire Joe the Molester Enabler if you wish. But the truth about him is coming to light (for those willing to open their eyes, at least).

    Gary, you are absolutely correct, I don't know you. You don't seem to be brave enough to sign your posts so that is a little difficult. To misquote Shakespeare slightly "You doth protest too much, methinks".

    You are really obsessed with Joe Paterno (almost to troubling level).

    No mercy for child molesters or enablers, that's all. For several years I was privy to the probation and pre-sentencing reports detailing the gruesome details of these horrific, life-destroying crimes against children. If you saw what I saw, you'd understand. The victims' suffering never ends, and in many ways these crimes are worse than murder.
