Joe Paterno Statue Removed By Penn State

Now for me this comes as a shock, but Penn State has removed the Joe Paterno statue from campus. This shows how much pressure that Penn State was under regarding the statue. They university has decided to leave his name on the library, but his statue will not longer be displayed. This also shows that they thought Joe Paterno should have done more than he did and it was dividing the university.

Removing the statue was probably best as it let's the university move on quicker. It is a shame it had to come to this, but Penn State had to do something as it was becoming a flaming point for the University. Hopefully, by removing the statue now the University, community, and students can look forward to the new school year. By leaving the name on the library it still gives Paterno credit for all he did do for the University. It's sad it ended this way, but there really was no choice.
