Silence in exchange for silence — that’s the price Penn State needs to pay for looking away as a sexual predator ruined lives.

The Freeh Report came out Thursday, and it’s as damning and heartbreaking a document as you’ll ever read. It tells the story of a university so concerned with its reputation that it allowed children to be molested.
