McQueary placed on administrative leave
Centre Daily Times ^ | Nov 11, 2011

Posted on 11/11/2011 1:27:08 PM PST by Second Amendment First

Mike McQueary, the assistant Nittany Lions coach who told a grand jury that in 2002 he saw former coach Jerry Sandusky sexually assault a young boy, has been placed on administrative leave. The move was announced by Penn State Interim President Rod Erickson at a news conference that began at 4 p.m.

That's fine. He'll get canned when they clean house and he can go count his money and live with his conscience then.

Oh yeah, maybe face charges too. He would in my state.

Not really surprising...

And yet, the PRIMARY concern of Penn State still is not the KIDS, but maintainng the football revenue stream...

That can't be right. I am sure that PSU has devoted every effort to finding and helping these kids and I am sure that the football game is the last thing on there mind. Why they even released a statement about the game. Remember? The asked everyone to focus on what is important. They asked everyone to remember that we should not lose fact that this was the Senior game and we should focus our attention on those celebrations and not be diverted by the attention the scandal was getting.

This will be final game of the season for Penn State, this school cannot go on the road and it certainly cannot go to a BCS bowl game-it is the most hated institution in the U.S.

Does anyone think that the Rose Bowl is going to be associated with it?

Even tenure can be revoked under certain circumstances.

Everyone associated with this crime will have to be removed from Penn State if it hopes ever to recover.

As it is now, people are infuriated at the foot dragging going on, when these steps should have been taken immediately.

It appears that these guys still don't understand the disgust and hatred against Penn State by most Americans.

Well, things might be starting to move in a positive direction. Rod Erikson, the interim university president, made a decision. Hopefully they'll come to a realization that the football program needs to be suspended for a couple of seasons to get everything in its proper perspective.

Before you bash McQueary, consider that he is the only witness the prosecution has to Sandusky raping anyone, other than the victims. Without him, it’s “he said...he said,” and it’s frightened boys vs. a powerful, well-connected adult. McQ did report the crime, he did testify before the grand jury. It’s not his fault that the higher-ups went into coverup mode to protect the university.

I think McQueary is in more legal jeopardy than even Paterno. He actually WITNESSED the act. I'm certainly not defending Paterno, but he does have the cover in that everything reported to him was hearsay. I haven't read that Paterno actually witnessed anything.

It’s in big trouble. Imagine your Division I recruited son comes to you and says: “Dad, I can go to Ohio State, Iowa, or Penn State, what do you think?”

As a father of two boys, one of them 10, I think I know how I’d respond to that.

It’s going to be along while before this wears off. IF...it wears off. Even my 14 year old, who’s seen the reports on ESPN and began asking questions said to me: “Why wouldn’t that graduate assistant stop him?”

I wish I had an answer for him.

His career was more important than stopping the rape of young boys. He only talked because he was afraid that one of the Grand Jury victims could be the one that he had witnessed being raped and would identify him, imho.

So far he is off the hook on state charges, but I’m starting to think they may all be worried about Federal charges.

Paterno has contacted a big time DC criminal defense attorney. Maybe not for good reason, but maybe for very good reason.

A few thoughts.
Why did the school not contact the cops?

Paterno did what he was legally required to.

McQ did what he was legally required to.

Sandusky should have been shot not fired, but why did the school let him continue to live on campus with locker room privileges.

The rumor is sandusky was pimping out the kids to high $ donors.

There was a desert named the sandusky an upside-down ice cream cone with 2 scoops(think about it)

What’s up with the missing now declared dead straight up DA who disappeared in 2005, under very odd circumstances after not being able to indite sandusky.

given what I already know, the entire athletic program should be disbanded the staff terminated and allowed to go dormant for at least 4 years. PA is going to pay hundreds of millions on this.

McQueary’s acts of omission were horrendous, but nothing as bad as the other three. Furthermore he was the only one that stood before the grand jury and testified to the whole ugly mess. If he didn’t testify like he did maybe this goes on for another 10 years. Yes, he made a terrible mistake, but he’s the only one showing any spine right now so I’m cutting him a little slack. He will be destroyed by his testimony and he had to know that at the time.

According to a local sports talk show host (who actually broke this story six months ago), this goes way up. Think about it, a DA disappeared along with his computer's hard drive. He was just recently declared legally dead even though a body has never been discovered. What was McQueary threatened with? If these monsters can make a DA disappear, what can they do to others? It's still not right, I know, I'm just throwing this frightening idea out there.

Did McQueary confront Sandusky at all? Did he say anything at the time to Sandusky? If not, then that would seem to give Sandusky an alibi or excuse on this. He (McQueary) said, he said (Sandusky said ... I was going to say “rebuts” but that didn’t sound quite right).

Is McQueary married? I have read nothing about a wife or family of his own. That might raise some eyebrows, too ... especially since McQueary knew Sandusky when he was a child.

Nope, not bashing McQueary. I know what it’s like to witness something or, in my case be a victim, and in the position of remaining quiet for my own well being.

The “higher-ups” seem to be in major CYA mode now.

Popular ‘culture’ in the USA is and has been toxic waste for many years. TV adds for Viagra and Trojan vibrators on family channels in prime time? Dressing up baby girls as sluts for that Tots and Tairas obscenity? Ads for jeans featuring ‘sexy’ children? Pro sports, apparently, is Tots and Tiaras for homosexuals.

And also, all those very persistent rumors of underage sex rings in the highest reaches of the US and Brit governments - remember the age-old senate page thing that was suddenly cancelled a few years ago after a short and briefly reported sex scandal?

I also thought about that disappeared DA and along the same lines. This very likely goes very high up, and it's amazing these days how frequently the right people wind up convieniently dead. Rotten to the core.

I agree that simply losing his job was not the only problem McQueary might have had if he had gone outside PSU channels with his report. Sandusky, a popular, nationally-known, powerful person far outranking McQ, knew that McQ saw him, so the source of any "anonymous" report would have been obvious. Anyone familiar with whistleblower cases (like the famous Serpico affair) would know that McQ took a risk by doing anything at all. And he did do something.

By going to Paterno, McQ hoped that someone with even more power than Sandusky would take action. It's not McQ's fault that the PSU bureaucrats did not act.

He is the main witness. He holds all the cards.

Both the university and the prosecutors are in a position where they have to try and make nice with him to influence his testimony.

It ain’t right, but it’s what we’ve got.

I have the same question in a different format. Who gave Sandusky Emeritus status with the keys to the kingdom (Lasch locker room)? Was it Spanier, Curley, or did the Trustees approve his status.

Second, after the first public incident in 1998, why did Sandusky suddenly retire and why did he not get any other coaching offers, as he is supposedly responsible for the defense at Linebacker U? Did JoePa tell him to get lost and blackball him because of his extra-carricular activities?

Some believe McQueary has “whistle-blower” protections that may prevent the university from taking stronger actions against him. He was an underling that took up the matter with his boss. I am not sure this is a legitimate use of whistle-blower laws but I can see where it is enough to cause PSU to act cautiously.
