Penn State removes Paterno statue

Amid recent fallout the statue of Penn State's late, disgraced former

football coach Joe Paterno has been taken down, after university

officials announced July 22 its decision to remove it. According to the

Paterno family, tearing down of Penn St. coach's statue 'does not serve

victims' of Sandusky.
