Protecting Children The Penn State sex abuse scandal raises as many questions as allegations against Jerry Sandusky. How could someone commit such heinous crimes against children? How did it go on for so long? And why did no one pay heed to an eyewitness? They tried to answer those questions this week at Cleveland State University, where coaches were trained on how to spot and deal with child abusers. We'll look at that and other efforts to protect kids from abuse, Wednesday at 9 on The Sound of Ideas.
