Were Joe Paterno and Jerry Sandusky innocent?

I seriously have my doubt about Jerry Sandusky being innocent but I can buy the possibility that Joe Pa was.

It's ironic and sad though that Paterno died so quickly after being removed from Penn State. He died what...within 2 weeks after he did?

The problem is people are so repulsed by the thought of the crime that they immediately say guilty and move on.
This is a Newsweek article. Every word has been sourced and ran through a lawyer. The only evidence of the shower incident is the assistant coach who changed his story over and over.
The 36 victims were able to walk up to Penn State and file a complaint and get millions of dollars without offering any evidence.
Sandusky may be a weird dude but he didn't follow the pattern of child molesters.
The accusers never offered any evidence, changed their story constantly and based much of their story on repressed memories while speaking to a psychologist.

I'm not saying either were innocent. People will say just about anything when the payout is 5 million dollars. Evidence matters, not words. There's a serious lack of evidence.

John Ziegler is the source. Could you not find anything from Alex Jones?

There was evidence to convict Sandusky of 45 counts of sexual abuse. Did Paterno know? Hard to say. However, when the buck has to stop some place, "I didn't know" is hardly a decent excuse.

All 36 victims are lying liars

It's impossible to find 36 people willing to lie to get $5 million?
Not one ever told anyone about the abuse before the trial. Of the 8 that testified 6 told police nothing happened, 2 refused to talk to the police. Then when they started telling their story, the details kept changing.
600 attacks supposedly. No DNA, no physical evidence, no audio, letters, no payouts, no pornography, no buying kids alcohol or drugs.
Btw of those 36 at least 12 have criminal records.
All they had to do was show up, claim abuse and collect a check.

You do not know what the word "evidence" means.

Zeigler is such a Loony Tune even the Paterno family has worked to distance itself from him.
