President Obama Says Penn State Scandal Should Prompt Nationwide ‘Soul Searching’

JIM WATSON/AFP/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- In an interview during a media time out at the Carrier Classic basketball game, ESPN’s Andy Katz asked President Obama about the Penn State scandal.

“The whole situation is heartbreaking,” the president said. “We think first and foremost of the victims of these alleged crimes.”

The president said, “It’s a good time for us to do some soul-searching – every institution, not just Penn State - about what our priorities are and making sure that we understand that our first priority is protecting our kids. We all have a responsibility. We can’t leave it to a system. We can’t leave it to somebody else. Each of us have to take it upon ourselves to make sure that our kids have the love and support and protection that they deserve.”
