Paterno fired, Penn State students riot – child sex abuse scandal widens

Joe Paterno, the legendary Penn State football coach, has been fired in the wake of a growing child sex abuse scandal at the school.  Despite pleas from Paterno to "remain calm," students reacted angrily to the news. Students clashed with police on the streets of State College, Pennsylvania; tear gas had to be used to break up the crowds.
