Penn State sex scandal

Gerald Arthur "Jerry" Sandusky (born January 26, 1944) is a retired American football coach. He served as an assistant coach for his entire career, mostly at Pennsylvania State University under Joe Paterno, and was one of the most notable major college football coaches to never have held a head coaching position. He was honored with Assistant Coach of the Year awards in 1986 and 1999.
In November 2011, Sandusky was arrested for 40 counts related to allegations of sexual abuse of young boys over a 15-year period.

Joseph Vincent "Joe" Paterno (born December 21, 1926) is a former college football coach who was the head coach of the Penn State Nittany Lions from 1966 to 2011. Paterno, nicknamed "JoePa," holds the record for the most victories by an FBS football coach with 409 and is the only FBS coach to reach 400 victories. He has coached five undefeated teams that won major bowl games. Paterno has been inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame as a coach. He announced on November 9, 2011, that he intended to retire at the end of the 2011 football season, but was removed from his position by Penn State trustees later that night as a result of the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal.

"March 1, 2002
A Penn State graduate assistant enters the locker room at the Lasch Football Building. In the showers, he sees a naked boy, known as Victim 2, whose age he estimates to be 10 years old, being subjected to anal intercourse by a naked Sandusky. The graduate assistant tells his father immediately.

March 2, 2002
In the morning, the graduate assistant calls coach Joe Paterno and goes to Paterno's home, where he reports what he has seen.

March 3, 2002
Paterno calls Tim Curley, Penn State athletic director to his home the next day and reports a version of what the grad assistant had said.

March 2002
Later in the month the graduate assistant is called to a meeting with Curley and senior vice president for finance and business Gary Schultz. The grad assistant reports what he has seen and Curley and Schultz say they will look into it.

March 27, 2002 (approximate)
The graduate assistant hears from Curley. He is told that Sandusky's locker room keys are taken away and that the incident has been reported to The Second Mile. The graduate assistant is never questioned by university police and no other entity conducts an investigation until the graduate assistant testifies in grand jury in December 2010."

Nov. 7, 2011
Pennsylvania Attorney General Linda Kelly says Paterno is not a target of the investigation into how the school handled the accusations. But she refuses to say the same for university president Graham Spanier. Curley and Schultz, who have stepped down from their positions, surrender on charges that they failed to alert police to complaints against Sandusky.

There are a lot of people defending Joe Paterno in this case and believe he is a scapegoat in the situation. I've heard mention that it wasn't his responsibility and that him notifying his boss (athletic director) was the appropriate action to take.

My thought is this happened 13 years ago and every person that did not contact the police from the graduate assistant on up to the university president is in some way responsible, if not legally, morally.
Any thoughts?
