Re: End of an era at Penn State.
Lives next to a grammar school....coaches kids football teams....holds sleepovers...I mean, yeah, Cub Scout leader,on and on and on...that is what these scumbags DO!!! This is a VERY WELL KNOWN profile and has been for the past two decades.
Here's what we all need to ask ourselves ...how in the name of Jesus Christ does this predator get a 100K UNSECURED bail??????
This cretin, these crimes, this nuclear impact...uh..please...this is at LEAST a million dollar bail WITH SURETY. This piece of excrement should not now nor ever in the near future be allowed to walk free with out a secured bail, ankle monitoring and unannounced checks by the bail division to insure he's not a danger to any more kids. No internet access.No residing within 500 feet of a school...all the controls and checks that the law has to stop these freakin' monsters from preying on kids.
This is totally ludicrous that this POS is a free man right now. There HAS to be more to this....what the hell could that judge be possibly considering...UNSECURED BAIL??????That's just a signature and off you go Donnie Diddleheimer...ridiculous...corrupt...I'm running out of adjectives to describe this mockery.

Instead, he turned his back on a rape victim and facilitated nine subsequent years of the same stuff. He's a weak ass ******, as is his Dad, and as a man there's no way any man with any shred of integrity couldn't hate both those atrophied c*nts.
Amen. That was my point in an earlier post, that he was reflective on what to do...asking his dad what to do versus being reflexive and instinctively grabbing/punching Sandusky and protecting the child and at a minimum yelling at him to interrupt the crime... I don't know where either of them (father/son's) have a moral compass focused but it's certainly not on "doing the right thing".
All it takes for evil to succeed is for good men to do nothing...and then they're not so good anymore........
They need McQueary to testify against the higher ups as to what he saw and told them that they sugarcoated and ignored. If they make him a target, then the case against the AD, VP etc is weakened.....
Morally, he's missing a compass as his actions in the shower that day should have been reflexive, not reflective....
Not only missing a compass, he's apparently retained a sense of humor about his situation...
The Patriot-News says McQueary spoke with his wide receivers during a conference call Friday and told them he was hiding in protective custody, and that he was done as the team’s receivers coach. He reportedly told them he’s not in State College anymore, and that he’d double-fisting drinks (drinking alocholic drinks two at a time).
It’s no surprise McQueary’s drinking heavily — few people are in a more difficult position than him right now. He’s one of the most important witnesses in the case.
UPDATE: The Patriot-News’ story has been updated. They say McQueary’s “protective custody” comment was a bad joke that the players took seriously. The double-fisting drinks comment was also removed from the story.
He's likely off the hook in the criminal sense, unless he opts to purjure himself as this thing continues to unfold, but the promising career at PSU that apparently meant everything to him and certainly more than the safety of one ten year old child is over at 37 as likely is his coaching career, period. The court of public opinion is reflexive, and he will have another 30 years to reflect on that.
Only putting this in because it's semi Pats related. Heard on PSU pregame show that Sam Gash is one of the leaders of a large group of former players who want input into who the university hires as Joepa's replacement.
He did report the info to the AD. In the military it's called chain command.
Now the guy who witnessed it happen and did nothing:like "coach, what the hell are you doing" or "get off the kid, you perv" or just pulled him off the kid, he's one of the villains. But he has yet to be fired. Strange, very strange.
Indeed it is. Makes me think that he knows more than he has already revealed, and the PSU admin is afraid to alienate him or else he'll start babbling.
Or, perhaps, he already made a deal to do the best he could to protect Paterno and the university has to honor their end of the bargain as best they can.
McQueary told his father, who told him to come immediately home. They went and told Paterno the next day.
Obviously a criminal act was committed so the father should have brought his son to the police. Paterno should have done more than say that he'd take care of it and pass the buck up the line of command. He should have told the son and father to report the crime to the police, told his superior and then checked later to make sure that something was done.
In the end, no one treated this like a criminal act.
They all treated this like a sexual harassment claim, where reporting it your superior is appropriate.
+1. The analogy I've been using is that they treated it like it was some sort of recruiting violation. Sort of a "victimless" crime, we certainly don't want to contact authorities, let's keep it all in house and hope no one finds out, etc.
But, of course, this is absolutely nothing like that.
That's a good question. But I'm positive that 10 year-olds qualify.
That's conflating the argument.
The question being "debated" was: was McQueary a mandatory reporter who had a legal duty to do more than he did?
My guess, based on the fact that K-12 and college are distinct entities, is that he was not, since a college coach would not normally "in the course of their employment or practice of their profession come into contact with children." Either he was a mandatory reporter before this incident—and therefore aware of his duty—or he wasn't; witnessing this one event would not suddenly make him one.

Hopefully when all the legal issues are out of the way and all the guilty are punished and out of the way, this school can rise to greatness once again.
The children are the utmost victims here ofcourse, they deserve justice,compensation,counselling and hopefully one day they will get piece of mind from this and be able to move on with their lives.
Beyond that, there are many more victims including the students,alumni,faculty and fans etc.
The pride and dignity has been hurt by this. For some people they live and die for this school,as they should and continue to do so. As long as they stand together and continue to strive for greatness they will certainly rise above this imo.
To be honest, the legal proceedings here have been slower and more lenient than I imagined they would be.
