Take Our Poll: Should Joe Paterno's Statue Be Removed?

Critics of the Penn State child rape scandal are calling for JoePa's statue to be taken down. What do you think?

Last week's scathing report presented by former FBI Director Louis Freeh shed light on what some call the gruesome side of Pennsylvania State University and its officials.

Reaction has been swift, steady and strong. For example, a halo that once crowned Joe Paterno's head on a campus mural was removed last weekend.

Once a hero, the nearly sainted head football coach has almost literally been knocked off his pedestal.

What do you think?

Should the famous statue of Joe Paterno at Penn State be removed?

That's a good point.

I think I have the solution. Move the statue to the locker room with Joe facing the entrance to the shower. That way he can still be there to inspire the players, but at the same time he wil be a reminder that abuse of anyone is wrong, will get you in trouble and should not be tolerated.

Statue has to go and bill the Paterno estate for the service...It is a shame his nice legacy ends up this way...Let this be a lesson to all who value self more than the vulnerable.

HA! THE STATUE IS GONE! Penn State may now move on to repair itself. Hopefully, the football program will receive a suspension (for a year or two). Let it be a lesson to other institutions with "revered" sports programs to keep them in check.
