Skip to comments.McQueary on alleged rape: 'I did stop it,' did have discussions with police
Posted on 11/15/2011 2:35:03 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY
Mike McQueary, the Penn State assistant football coach under fire for his reported lack of action in an alleged 2002 rape of a boy by Jerry Sandusky, said in an email to a former classmate that he stopped the assault in an athletic facility shower and discussed it with police.
In the email obtained by The Morning Call, McQueary wrote that he "did have discussions with police and with the official at the university in charge of police" following the alleged incident between Sandusky, a former Penn State assistant coach, and a boy.
McQueary also wrote that he "is getting hammered for handling this the right way or what I thought at the time was right."

The grand jury probably has a deposition or transcript of McQueary’s testimony. He may have said it the wrong way or not read the deposition well.
Or McQueary may just be panicking because he’s seen how the public views a guy who flees such a situation before he rescues the boy so he’s changing his story now. If he’s acting to cover his ass again that’s just more aid to the Sandusky so McQueary can look good. He’s hurting the boys’ case, calling into question his own credibility.
Sandusky may walk on some nightmare legal trick, but will never erase the public grand jury testimony of several witnesses, including McQueary, who saw him rape several boys. Sandusky will remain pedophile scum for the rest of his life, regardless of what is said by anybody other than his unknown, evil, identical twin.
No, McQueary is trying to make his cowardly inaction seem reasonable & sufficient to the situation. It was not!
If true, this pushes the timeline of police/public knowledge much closer to the disappearance of Ray Gricar. (2005)
The Grand Jury stuff posted on the web is clearly not all of the testimony, just a report. So - not quite right to characterize it as a lie...(yet)
If not, why not? Don't ask, don't tell...?
Sorry but this case needs to go to court. Now if true, the police are the ones who let Sandusky off and not Penn State. There is so much information out that and questions that need answered. For example, McQueary went to the police, what was the result of the investigation? The Governor of Pennsylvania was the Attorney General of Pennsylvania and investigated this case. What was found? Why didn’t Sandusky get arrested at that time? Why is Penn States getting bashed if the police have been involved throughout this entire disgusting episode? There are some very unanswered questions. This definitely needs to go to court so these questions are answered.
He stopped it by sticking his fingers in his ears.
Back in July. For a buck.
Regarding “Did he stop it”
Its been reported that both Sandusky and The Victim saw McCleary..he knew he had been caught.
So - I have to think, the mere fact that they knew they had been caught would break it up.
I cant imagine that Sandusky just kept plugging away, even after he knew he had been caught red-handed.
Also - and I hate to broach this subject, but there has to be the remote possibility that the victim had been concentual...and not a forced rape. That does not diminish the evil, but might have left McQueary a bit confused about what he had witnessed.
Regardless - in either case, it would seem that there was no immediate concern for the kid.
A child, a minor below the age of consent, can NOT consent to sex. Period.
But thats a legal standard. i.e. - It can never be legal no matter how willing the victim might have been.
But that doesn’t dismiss the possibility that the kid was willing and not forced.
The only thing I would add to your post is that he should have told Sandusky he was going to the police and he could either turn himself in or he could try and scrimp together some last vestige of honor and eat a bullet.
What happened Sandusky saw him and stopped.
Nothing short of leaving with the boy is acceptable, and the sad thing, is that McQuery still doesn't get it.
He is still whining about how traumatic it was for HIM!
