    Dude has already lost all respect from most people. See a child being raped- stop it and report it to the police (especially when your boss doesn't). I don't feel the least bit sorry for him.

    No one could have made him a scapegoat for anything if he had gone straight to the authorities like he should have.

    Respectfully disagree.... does sound like he did report it to Joe who had a responsibility.. Agreed, if as apparently he subsequently he saw Sandusky around the PSU facilities it would have been damned awful, and yeah, MAYBE he should have acted then more, like go back to Joe, but from what I hear, nice grandfatherly Joe didnt put up with much when it threatened his little world. So McQ might likely have rationalized.

    I am not saying that McQ couldn't have done more.. he could have... but I do imagine that the football/power situation is a context that makes it hard to judge and harder (for me) to condemn McQ out of hand. Because I dont know enough facts.. It is easy to say, well hell *I* would have X or Y, but in the situation, I doubt many truly know what they would have done. Hope that makes sense.. One thing for certain, totally disgusting and incredibly awful situation, and sanctions were demanded and appropriate.

    I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
    “You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. During the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
    “Because,” says the Lord, “Sandpeople always ride single-file, to hide their numbers.”

    Respectfully disagree Anytime you see a child apparently being raped and you do not physically stop that assault from happening then you are in the wrong. imo

    Re: McQueary suing Penn State for $4 million

    I'm no legal expert, but reporting an offense to your immediate supervisor and not taking it any further when it's not being handled IMO is NOT whistle blowing. While Pedo State deserves to take as many hits as possible over this, McQueary was part of the problem, not the solution. He should not be rewarded for doing the very minimum while little boys are getting raped.

    Right. It's more difficult than I can muster for me to feel sorry for him. He reaped what he sowed.

    Re: McQueary suing Penn State for $4 million

    I want to feel sorry for this guy, but I can't. He had a choice to stand up for the kid and likely not work again in the field, or walk away and when it was discovered he wouldn't work again in the field. Was a decade of coaching worth it? Whether he gets paid or not means nothing to me. He has to live with what he did for the rest of his life.
