PHOTO: Penn State Students, Protesting The Protest

Not all Penn State students took to the streets of State College Wednesday night to protest the firing of a football coach who didn't stop child abuse from happening under his watch. While a TV news van was flippedstreet lights came down, and this guy failed to contribute, more than one PSUer showed up to point out the reason Joe Paterno had to be fired.

Plenty of participants were just people-watching, and plenty were legitimately upset that Paterno had been fired. It still wasn't a display Penn State will be putting in their recruitment ads any time soon. It's good to see these citizens, along with the gentleman in the latter video here, were willing to stand contrary to what had to have been one of the dumbest riots ever.
