Gov. asks PSU students to stop violence

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett is asking students at Penn State to refrain from the violence that wracked their college town following the firing of football coach Joe Paterno.

At a news conference Thursday, Corbett said that actions speak much louder than words. He says students have the right to express their opinions but not the right to violence.

Students took to the streets Wednesday night after trustees fired Paterno and university President Graham Spanier (SPAN’-yer) for their handling of child sex abuse allegations against a former assistant football coach.

Corbett says that when students chant ”We are Penn State!” they should make sure they’re demonstrating Penn State at its best.
