Banner flying over Penn State: ‘Take Down the Statue or We Will’ (photo)

Even though the school has stated that no long-term decision has been made related to the future of the statue of disgraced and recently deceased former Penn State football coach that is prominently displayed outside Beaver Stadium, the statue of Joe Paterno remains standing. But the fact that there is a plane reportedly circling above the campus with a banner trailing it that reads, “Take Down the Statue or We Will” certainly does not indicate that those who believe the tribute to Joe Paterno should be removed will stand idly by and allow the university to dictate the terms and the timing of its decision.

While it is unlikely that an angry mob will storm the campus and topple the statue like Saddam Hussein’s was in Baghdad, that does not mean that this situation will not get ugly. And it could get real ugly really fast. Buckle up.
