Yet more evidence

of at least moral double standards, when it comes to PSU students and PSU football players. In an article last month in The Wall Street Journal, there is a story how Joe Paterno sank the career of the University’s standards and conduct officer, Vicky Triponey.

From a 2005 e-mail sent by Dr. Triponey:

“Coach Paterno would rather we NOT inform the public when a football player is found responsible for committing a serious violation of the law and/or our student code,” she wrote, “despite any moral or legal obligation to do so.”

Hmmmm…this is looking like a consistent, if disturbing, pattern of behavior on the part of Paterno. Perhaps, there are some Penn Staters who were more equal than others. Clearly, the violent on and off-campus behavior of football players was NOT considered to be that serious.

The news is going to continue to get worse….
