Mishandle child sex crimes & you get a statue

You can’t make this stuff up.

A Pennsylvania company makes and sells statues of Joe Paterno, the now-disgraced, widely-disgraced but still-beloved-by-some-Penn-Staters football coach who (among others) didn’t take sufficient steps to act on abuse suspicions about Jerry Sandusky.

The same company also make and sell statues of Pope Francis. http://articles.philly.com/2015-08-31/news/66037037_1_sandusky-disclosures-jerry-sandusky-penn-staters

And a Duquesne Brewing Co. executive Mark Dudash, which produces something called Joe Paterno beer, believes his unexpectedly high sales are attributable to “a guardian angel up in heaven somewhere.”

When will we stop praising, honoring and rewarding powerful men who ignore, hide or enable heinous crimes against kids?
