Death threats are not ok

Published March 18, 2012

It was disturbing enough to read that  some angry Penn Staters have lobbed death threats to members of the Board of Trustees. But I was even more upset to read  many remarks posted on social media sites that agreed with their tactics.

I’m as angry at the board as anyone out there. But threats of death or physical harm must be universally condemned.

I call on all members of the Penn State family to denounce such messages, and focus on electing new trustees with the courage and experience to bring real reform to Penn State.

We are … better than that.
