Last night, a large amount of Penn State students gathered in front of the administration building to peacefully protest so that Joe Paterno would keep his job. Paterno since said that he would retire at the end of the season. That wasn't enough to save him though, as the university fired him later tonight.
Most people thought that Paterno's inability to tell the police about Jerry Sandusky's disgusting actions and the fact that Sandusky was allowed on campus up until last week was absolutely inexcusable and that he should've resigned immediately.
Here are five reasons why those supporters protesting are dead wrong. Paterno's actions, or lack thereof, are absolutely inexcusable, and he deserves to walk away with shame. Penn State made the correct and moral decision in letting him go.
