Students have taken to the Internet to plead for retribution after a grand jury presentment was released Saturday morning stating that Athletic Director Tim Curley and Penn State Vice President for Business and Finance Gary Schultz were each charged with perjury and failure to report information in regards to the case of former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.
Sandusky was barred from campus after he was charged with sexually assaulting eight young boys.
As of 3:45 p.m. Sunday, 49 people signed a petition letter addressed to the Penn State Board of Trustees asking them to fire Penn State President Graham Spanier. Spanier testified that Curley and Schultz notified him of an "uncomfortable incident" involving Sandusky and a young boy in the Lasch Football Building in 2002.
Spanier was not charged for any wrongdoing in the grand jury presentment. Click here to see the petition.
A few student-created Facebook groups emerged within the last 24 hours from students who wished to seek justice for the events that occurred.
One Facebook event, titled "Sit in Silence during the Alma Mater," encourages attendees of the final home football game of the season Saturday against the University of Nebraska to sit in silence while the Penn State Blue Band performs the Alma Mater.

There is also a Facebook page titled "Fire Graham Spanier." On the Facebook page, the description encourages "people who believe Graham Spanier's unconditional support for Tim Curly [sic] and Gary Schultz demonstrates he is incapable of handling the Jerry Sandusky situation, and he should be fired immediately if he doesn't resign" to like the page.
