Letter to the editor: They could have done more

There has been a great deal of discussion in recent days about the restoration of wins to the Penn State football team.

While this is certainly important, Penn State’s continued willingness to this point to accept the consent decree and the Freeh report virtually without question and its ongoing failure to defend the university against false reports still beg a much larger question as to why they reacted the way they did in 2011 and 2012.

Having indicated that child protection was their first priority, why did the board move so quickly to divert media attention to the football program instead of taking a proactive approach to educating the public on a national scale about child acquaintance victimizers?

What a missed opportunity.
