PS4RS Statement: Freeh, NCAA did terrible disservice to children

In light of today’s news  about "collaboration" between Freeh and the NCAA, PS4RS has issued the following statement:

"The Penn State community and the wider general public were led to believe that Louis Freeh was hired to provide an objective, independent assessment of how a pedophile could have gone undetected so long; and to learn how to prevent it from ever happening again. Sadly, with today's news, we have learned that the real objective was to place the blame on Penn State football so that the NCAA could hand down harsh sanctions and thereby prop up its faltering image. In doing so, Louis Freeh obscured the lessons that should have been learned from this tragedy and did a terrible disservice to children everywhere.

  1. Absolutely correct. Penn State hired the wrong person because Freeh apparently had no expertise in the investigation of sexual child abuse, and his report shows it.

    Too bad Freeh failed to hire any of his former FBI experts in that field such as Ken Lanning or Jim Clemente.
