A handful of Penn State students stood on the steps of Old Main Sunday night, holding signs with messages such as "Protecting molesters? This PSU leadership does not represent me" and "Tonight I am ashamed of PSU," as they voiced their concerns about recent charges.
Student protester Ricky Morales said he was bothered by Penn State President Graham Spanier's "unconditional" support for Penn State Athletic Director Tim Curley and Penn State Interim Senior Vice President for Business and Finance Gary Schultz after they were each charged with perjury and failure to report suspected abuse.
The charges are in connection with incidents revolving around former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, who was charged Friday with 40 counts on seven different charges after he was investigated by a grand jury for sexually abusing up to eight young boys.
"I think we can speak for a lot of people in denouncing the administration with this issue," Morales (senior-journalism and comparative literature) said.
