First of all, there is no need to pay for a document that is available in it's entirety online. Second, this listing belongs in the fiction category, for the "findings" of the report are pure speculation. I do encourage all to read the entire report, not just the summary, for this is the only way to reveal how many flaws exist within the report.

The report makes leaps of faith on the part of Freeh and his "investigators." You can read the Report (sic) for free online at thefreehreportonpsuDOTcom and realize for yourself that nothing in it will stand up in court. Another Former Federal Judge (Tim Lewis) has stated how poorly supported all of the conclusions in the report are. This report is full of more fictional findings than a Fantasy novel.

This work of fiction hand-tooled by Freeh to give the PSU board of trustees what they paid for is at best an incomplete investigation gained through anecdotal opinions through interviews with PSU employees who weren't even under oath. If you believe ANY of this, you need to be in the market for swamp land in the Sahara. Failing to interview the principle players in the Sandusky scandal, PSU AD Tim Curley, ex-PSU head football coach Joe Paterno, PSU VP for Business Affairs Gary Schultz, ex-PSU Pres. Graham Spanier, and ex-Asst. football coach Mike McQueary, this report couldn't be called thorough on ANY level. The public at large fails to understand this is an incomplete internal review of PSU employees, and some people who could have weighed in with significant facts aren't even questioned, like the board members and employees of Sandusky's Second Mile charity, the DA of Centre Co. Ray Gricar who failed to indict Sandusky after the 1998 investigation and who later mysteriously disappeared in 2005, PA Gov. Tom Corbett who investigated Sandusky in 2009 as then PA Attorney General, and Sandusky himself, currently awaiting sentencing for being convicted of 45 counts of felony child sexual abuse and assault. Thorough? Complete? Comprehensive? Not in a pig's valise, buddy! This whitewash rivals the Warren Commission Report as a rush to judgment work of fiction at best.

Almost unimaginable that a former director of the FBI and former Federal Judge would have been responsible for putting together a compilation of his own self fulfilling conclusions supported by little to no evidence. Even more unimaginable is that the PSU Board of Trustees paid Freeh $6.5 million of University money to craft such nonsense.

I have read this report twice. I AM a Penn State Graduate-disclosure.

I am simply not sure how Mr. Freeh reached the conclusions he did, on the evidence he reported considering. He HAS to acknowledge that he stretched some of the material he reviewed, and that his initial presentation contained several errors that were subsequently "corrected" in the weeks following the initial release of the report. NOT inconsequential changes, date changes of three or more years?? And on and on.

For the most part, I am skeptical about the factual basis of the report, and of the conclusions. The number of documents examined, mostly by a keyword search of massive computer files, picked out only the material that was requested, how much was missed?? Of all the emails reviewed, the basis of the allegations rest upon THREE??? Weak.

I would like to see a more extensive examination and a more reliable source. The FIFA herring smells as bad as this report to me.

This report has been the subject of much debate from the manner in which Mr Freeh was hired for 6.5 million dollars, to the political connections/corruption that goes all the way to the PA governor's office. This report has been proved to be full of lies and suppositions, and ultimately is a pure work of fiction. How can this report be generated without the consideration of most of the key people involved? This is utter nonsense, and in time the public will all know the truth about this story.

Having read the Freeh report 3 times, I can tell you that this is a biased opinion and the conclusions are NOT supported by evidence. By the way, this is downloadable for FREE. Why would you waste your $ on it anyway??? More importantly, it is not worth you time!

First of all, why would any one buy this piece of trash when you can download it for free?
Any good researcher knows that you cannot make "reasonable conclusions" You MUST base conclusions on facts - which this report is clearly lacking. "Evidence" is taken out of context to form Freeh's faulty assumptions. Evidence is not reliable, not triangulated, and not verified. This work would never be accepted as true research, nor would it be accepted in a court of law. Seems the only place it is accepted is by the brain dead media, out to get ratings and bigger bucks, and the general public, which is too lazy to read for themselves and lack critical thinking skills.

You could read this book and relive the magic of being force-fed complete nonsense by the mainstream media, OR you could really bother to learn the truth and go to these links instead: [...]

The endorsement on the front cover by Tom Corbett would be the most hilarious thing if it weren't so tragic. (Extra credit: find out the connection between Gov. Corbett and the Second Mile charity, and you'll be even better informed than most.)

This report contradicts itself in the title alone, "The Complete Investigative Findings Related to Child Abuse Committed by Gerald A. Sandusky." How can this be 'Complete' when Freeh never interviewed so many of the main players in the entire scandal? McQueary, Dr. Dranov, Shultz, Spanier, and Paterno? The conclusions in this book are complete nonsense and are based off of such little factual evidence that it is almost criminal. Freeh has a record of false reporting (FIFA investigation) as well as causing many more tragedies of his own (Ruby Ridge, Waco) that his word on anything should be questioned immediately.
No reason to pay $20 for this book when you can read the report for Free online.
