PSU Fallout: Paterno’s Halo Removed

A work of art near the campus of Penn St. University has been changed for a second time as a result of the child sex abuse conviction of former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

FOX News Radio’s Pam Puso explains:

The halo above Joe Paterno’s head has been removed from a mural in downtown State College.  It was placed earlier this year, after the former football coach died, but the artist says he felt it couldn’t stay after a report found that Paterno and other top school officials buried allegations of child sex abuse against former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

The halo, replaced with a large blue ribbon on Paterno’s lapel, symbolizing support for child abuse victims.  Earlier, Sandusky’s image was removed from that mural.
