Rush to Judgement?

Former PSU Trustee Al Clemens talks about the decisions to fire Joe Paterno and sue the NCAA.
Those critical of Penn State's handling of Joe Paterno, the Louis Freeh Report and the NCAA sanctions often sum up their frustration with three words. Rush to judgement. Now a trustee that voted to fire Paterno talks about that decision, how the university handled the following weeks of crisis, and what lies ahead.
Al Clemens says the board he was on made two key mistakes. They failed to give Joe Paterno a chance to respond to their plans to fire him. And they accepted the Freeh report without review.
He says the head of the NCAA took that report and imposed "outrageous penalties" without due process. Watch the full interview with Al Clemens Tuesday night at 6 on WTAJ-TV.
