Paternos issue report, challenge Freeh's findings

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. A report commissioned by Joe Paterno's family says the late coach did nothing wrong in his handling of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal and portrays the late Hall of Fame coach as the victim of a "rush to injustice" created by former FBI director Louis Freeh's investigation of the case for Penn State.

The family's critique, released Sunday, argues that the findings of the Freeh report published last July were unsupported by the facts.

Former U.S. Attorney General Dick Thornburgh, one of the experts assembled by the family's lawyer to review Freeh's report last year to Penn State, called the document was fundamentally flawed and incomplete.

Freeh's report reached "inaccurate and unfounded findings related to Mr. Paterno and its numerous process-oriented deficiencies was a rush to injustice and calls into question" the investigation's credibility, Thornburgh was quoted as saying.

2. It's a shame the Paterno family

didn't spend this kind of time and energy investigating the charges against Sandusky, back when it might have done some good.

Talk about "process oriented deficiencies." Being told one of your staff is raping children, and then not bothering follow up or call the police, THAT's what I'd call a fairly significant "process oriented deficiency."
