Judge Not Joe Paterno?

Milgram’s Expermients showed that ¾ of people will kill someone if someone in a lab coat tells them to, the experiment was a test of Arendt’s banality of evil on Nazi behavior. Which led to Ross’ and the Fundamental Attribution Error that in general many choices are dictated by situation (structure) even though we think it is disposition (agency). It's amazing how quick people are to forget lessons that have been taught for thousands of years. Bottom line: Judge not lest ye be judged. Or let he who is without sin...

I'm not saying what he did was by any means right. I just don't like the judgy done of so much of the coverage.
