I appreciate you clarifying that, and your right that pedophiles do manipulate other adults in children's lives in order to abuse. However, even in this context I still take issue with applying the victim label to Paterno. For one, even if he was blind to what Sandusky was up to it was willfully so since there was an obvious motivation on Paterno's part to keep Sandusky's activities quiet, that being to protect PSU's football program above all else. Second, like I keep re-iterating, Paterno was a man with a lot of power, and as Sandsuky's superior over him in particular, so logic dictates that the victim label doesn't apply. Paterno may have been manipulated but certainly without putting up much resistance to it, and like I said he had his own motivations to not protest Sandusky's behaviour too loudly.
Love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world.
