@TJCarpenterWHB – email@example.com – Why should Penn State get the death penalty? Because it defines what “lack of institutional control” means. Not only did it display a lack of institutional control, but took that control gave it to a single man who abused it for well over a decade and likely longer. Penn State was out of control and the end result was the shattered lives of innocent children. Not every institution’s lack of control will result in what happened at Penn State, but why take that risk by not setting a precedent now?
