We're back with psychiatrist Doctor -- tableau criminal defense attorney Fox -- legal analysts -- her eyes Allah and former prosecutor Fox News legal analyst -- we'll.
But let's go to to Penn State.
On the part of some students in defense of Joseph Paterno.
We have seen extraordinary behavior it at Penn State.
Give us some sense of the psychology.
And doctor if you will.
Is to what's going on and an institution that this has gone on for some number of years apparently will soon know the facts I presume.
What has been what it's been going on psychologically.
As best you can to term.
Well I like to C the things that can be seen most plainly first.
That the leading edge of this the rise it's the protests saying we want.
Joseph Paterno to stay are really about the embrace of a sport.
And a legend.
And that may be the very psychological.
Hurdle that -- -- whole university is having trouble clearing.
Because what's really required here is to be human about this not to embrace legend not to look for victory.
But to say who's hurting.
We need to be quite human about this that's the only face that's gonna be put on this that works.
But isn't part of that.
Attitude that it's just the team above all else you know that the legend above all else.
Isn't that also what may have contributed to all these years if the allegations are true not allowing that to happen.
Interestingly talk anyway Brad exactly former New York time.
An NFL star here last night talking about Joseph Paterno knew everything that happened and that -- He was program.
You -- -- class whatever happened he knew about it.
And to suggest that he did not have knowledge of this you know I won't put words in -- Benson's mouth but.
No it was clear that he he felt that.
-- -- had a lot more scope.
By in all of Penn State and he's being -- credit for right now.
That's I'm sure that's accurate but I live also guarantee you that the United States attorney's office I'm sorry -- I'm looking at least of -- United's it's very.
The prosecutor's -- look at that is very deeply.
And although they would be in -- -- position to try to convicted 84 year old.
Icon they would've charged him if there was a blatant.
Yeah assistance he now has that he should have a Defense Secretary look there are three different entities that are investigating this -- -- resulting from which exactly but criminal charges may not all be done already and us is talking to -- -- reaching out in the mean -- way.
To each of these victims and to aggressively try to find these victims.
Into trying to make them whole.
And to make sure that they -- They should on a moral and ethical level absolutely what some lawyers would tell you and I don't agree with us for some but some lawyers would say if they can't do that because that's admitting liability.
And admitting -- other than the civil lawsuits are going to be coming down harder them.
I don't think that's right I think they should reach out.
Did you get the last quarterly if record yet from a psychological standpoint really quickly the first statement that should have been made.
By the authorities at the university was first and foremost anyone who may have been heard please come forward and it's courageous it's the thing to do.
That doesn't imply liability -- I don't think it just says we want to do the right thing.
And goes back to your earlier statement which is.
We need to be human and all these instances in which there is so much pain thank you very much we appreciate it thanks thank you.
