While I am NOT the least bit of a big fan of football, this Penn State story is something I must speak on. Legendary Penn State Coach Joe Paterno and the university President Graham Spanier have both been removed from their positions, effective immediately due to sexual allegations against one of Paterno's former assistants. According to the press Paterno as well as school officials were aware of the abuse that was happening to the students and they did nothing about it. Students as well as Penn State Alumni and fans rioted outside of the university in Paterno's favour, throwing over cars and pitching rocks at police when the news broke out that their Stellar coach was to be fired.
But is it Paterno's fault? Was he wrong for not reporting the incidents to an even higher authority than what he had already reported to? Was it his responsibility to ensure the safety of the students that were in his care? Some people say, it's not his fault. He had nothing to do with it and that the university is wrong for firing him. Some say he is just as guilty as Jerry Sandusky the man who is being accused of the actual abuse.
I say if Paterno knew of abuse and took the "Don't ask, don't tell," route, he is just as guilty. If I pick you up and we get stopped and there is a gun in my car, although it is my car, the police will take both of us to jail. Those students were in Paterno's care. His assistant sexually abused them and he knew about it and did NOTHING. Both of them are responsible. The children in this case are VICTIMS!
There is no excuse for victimizing a child, not in a church, not in a classroom, and definitely not in a locker room. I pray that if any of my readers have witnessed or been subject to any type of abuse, MENTALLY,PHYSICALLY OR SEXUALLY, THAT they REPORT it. Do not be afraid or ashamed. Too often are things like this going on right under our noses, RIGHT IN OUR COMMUNITY. I thank God for having an overprotective mother, but I know that everybody wasn't as privileged. So if you've experienced anything like this, my heart goes out to YOU.
Prayers to the VICTIMS at Penn State and Across the World. God Bless - La

Heavy D, who's real name is Dwight Myers has passed on today. Reports say he was admitted to an L.A. hospital earlier today and pronounced dead from an unknown infection. Some sources say pneumonia, while others say H.I.V. "The Overweight Lover" as Heavy D was called, just performed a crowd pleasing performance with Rap and Dance on the B.E.T. Hip Hip Awards.
The Rapper was 44 years old. I remember jamming to Heavy D's "Baby Got Back" when I was a little girl. His videos used to always come on "The Box." Heavy D passes a day after Boxer Joe Frazier, who he tweeted was a true "Heavyweight." When A Dose of La finds out more about this story, we will post.

Support our own New Orleans and go out and cop this one!!!
