Mike McQueary

I'm In Protective Custody,

Double Fisting Booze

11/11/2011 3:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mike McQueary has reportedly informed the Penn State football players that he's currently in protective custody and "double fisting" alcohol.

According to PennLive.com, one of the PSU coaches gathered several players in a room on campus and allowed McQueary to speak to the team via speaker phone.

McQueary reportedly told the team, "I wanted to let you guys know I'm not your coach anymore. I'm done.”

McQueary also told the team he's not at the University, but in protective custody after receiving several threats ... and "double fisting" booze.

McQueary was placed on administrative leave earlier today.

McQueary -- who's married with a 2-year-old daughter -- is the man who witnessed Jerry Sandusky allegedly rape a young boy back in 2002 ... but failed to stop the attack and didn't report the crime to the police.

He's double fisting booze? Really? He should be on his knees begging for forgiveness. He watched a ten year old boy get raped, and he walked away -- didn't call 911, didn't pull Sandusky off the kid, didn't pull the kid away from Sandusky, didn't even shout "Hey, knock it off". This man is lower than dirt, and there is a special place in Hell for him. I hope he never ever has another night's sleep in his life, and is tortured by what he failed to do.

sandusky will be killed soon or he will kill himself. there is a huge coverup. that pimping story is out there..some rich and powerful people are involved and they do not want sandusky to testify...why was he let out on bail? maybe these rich and powerful people told the DA and the judge to let him have a low bail so they can take care of the problem.

So, PU aka Pedophile State University has now decided he MIGHT be a bad proposition, unless this blows over. So, are we supposed to feel badly that he's two-fisted drinking? I think not, this is yet another bad choice you are making. Personally, I don't want you dead, I want you to pay for not trying to save that child. You could have stopped it, you didn't even try, you are as culpable as all the rest. It goes from you on up.

He might not ever be charged but his carrer is over and he now has plenty of time to reflect, he has lost every benifit he ever recieved for not stepping up.

There are many others above him who need to be brought to justice, lets hope the public wont allow the powers that be at Penn to move forward once again without that justice in full.

This guy deserves contempt. Not his daughter. Some of the comments about his daughter are disturbing. You don't pick your parents. She is an innocent child also.

I have no pity on McQueary whatsoever. I do have pity on the young boy that McQueary witnessed being abused. Clearly McQueary was more worried about his career than he was about the boy. In my opinion, McQueary is no different than Sandusky, perhaps even worse.

If penn State fired Paterno for not calling the police then they should do the same to McQueary since he did the same thing....Not to mention, he saw the son of a bitch do it!

If this is true, this guy is as much a pig as I thought he was. Walks in on a child being r a p e d and walks out w/o doing anything to protect the kid. He is not a "whisleblower" for crying aloud - he did nothing and he was not the reason for the investigation - one of the victims was. I would not be a bit surprised if he's found to be a m o l e s t e r too. Fugly as sin too.

Penn State's Board of Trustees have an email address which is easy to find on Penn's main page. If you haven't already done so, shoot them an email. Maybe, just maybe, if they get enough emails with people's outrage they may actually wise up. However, since they haven't already axed any and all people who may have been even remotely close to the scandal I fear they simply don't get it!
