I am writing is response to The Daily Collegian’s Feb. 26 editorial titled “Trustee’s request for refund is a step backward.”
Setting aside the issue of the ever-shifting sands of the “purpose” of the Freeh Report, FBI Consultant Jim Clemente is a respected authority in the field of crimes against children, and his report in the Paterno Report makes it abundantly clear that the anonymous people used by Freeh have precisely zero understanding of the methods used by offenders who prey on children, particularly “nice guy” offenders.
That being the case, why does the Collegian believe that recommendations authored by such patently unqualified people are worth anything at all, let alone $6.5 million or more? It seems axiomatic that for recommendations to be valid, they must be written by people who know what they are talking about.
