"This is guns blazing. This is completely eviscerating of the big four at PSU: Paterno, Spanier, Curley, Schultz. They knew in 1998. … Then you have the janitors in 2000 fearing for their jobs if they reported the assault they saw. Then Schultz, Curley, Spanier going ultra-cryptic in their Feb. 2001 emails discussing the McQueary incident and showing no interest in finding out the ID of the assaulted boy. … Someone better get out the piggy bank to settle the lawsuits."
