Penn State's Joe Paterno Riots Were Worst in 15 Years

The Penn State riots following Joe Paterno’s firing were the worst in 15 years according to State College Police. Police have arrested 38 individuals and plan to arrest a further seven. The total property damage is estimated to be about $190,000. Both figures trump an art festival that went awry in 1998, leading to 20 arrests and $150,000 in damage.

Not absolving the students, but much of the blame should rest with the Penn State Board of Trustees who thought it wise to announce a controversial decision at 10pm.
