Was Schultz part of the actual campus police? What I understand is that he was some sort of Vice President for the university, who had "oversight" regarding campus police, not an actual officer of the law himself.
I get ya. I'm sure in-depth analysis would reveal other ways for Paterno to have handled this. Again, by his own admission, he could have done more.
I think it's something a lot of us say in the face of a tragedy we feel could have been prevented, even when it's not true. But I'm sure he could have.
I think his fault lies in that he didn't know how to handle it. There was an old friend, a possibly horrific act, the possibility of other victims, the program, the university, the assistant and so on. So he did what many would do, he followed the protocol on the situation and walked away hoping that they would deal with it.
I respect you opinion, but to me, I see his failing as utterly human. I see it as something that could befall any of us and therefore not something worthy of demonizing the man.
