VIDEOS: Penn State Kids Topple Street Lights For Joe Paterno

If there's one thing that always warmed the heart of former Penn St. Nittany Lions coach Joe Paterno (former!), it was seeing minor violence and mayhem carried on long after Jeopardy! has concluded. And if there's one sure sign of a decent outbreak of minor violence and mayhem, it's the razing of street lights.

Here's a video of the first such unlucky fixture:

And here's the second:

Both videos via Deadspin.

I believe that's the extent of the street light carnage, but don't be horrified if the light of the morning leads to the discovery of more downed street lights. This is a perhaps the first time ever that street lights have been systematically disabled in defense of a football coach who failed to report a rape, and that's probably not much to be proud of.
