Mike McQueary

I'm In Protective Custody,

Double Fisting Booze

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

1111-mike-mcqueary-getty-bn
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.

There are somes reports that have said that even after the 2002 incident where McQueary saw the 10 year old boy being raped that Sandusky would bring young boys with him to watch the football practices which McQueary was at coaching. Some are wondering if McQueary saw Sandusky with these young boys, after he knew Sandusky had raped that 10 year old previously, then how could he let this rapist keep being around these young boys at football practices and not say anything.

Penn State is like a house of horrors. The evil that was committed against children in that locker room is beyond belief.

It was systemic child abuse much like those crimes against humanity committed by the Nazis. The authorities in Nazi Germany knew what horrors were taking place just like the officials at Penn State University.

They should either knock down/demolish the building or make it a tribute like Auschwitz.

How can anyone ever enter or shower in those facilities again thinking about those poor children being anally raped, tortured.

ok i have a question - isn't penn state a state run university that is funded by the federal govt? - which means our taxes go to paying the salaries for the likes of mcquery, curley and schultz while they are out on"paid leave" while the atty general puts together criminal cases against most of them?? and others waiting to be fired???

Stop the hate! You are worse than him for it. I would think the incident stopped when eye contact was made and he knew it. I'm sure he was intimidated by this man and maybe feared for his life. At LEAST he DID report it. Every time I hear a story about this man it makes me angrier at JoPa for HIS inaction. If anyone should have completely stepped up it is Paterno. He was much older, had children of his own at the time, and has been the most powerful man at PSU for many years!!

As a proud PSU alum, as hard as this week has been, I can only relate it to when my grandfather passed away. Given the situation and the blame Mcqueary has faced, I do understand the outrage at what his actions were. That said, (I am giving ZERO excuses here) he grew up in State College and would have viewed the staff as semi-gods and fallen in line. As sick as that sounds, the truth is he is the only one with the guts to report the crime and should be commended. I cannot say I would have acted differently in his position and gone further per se. I have no idea, and I am thankful I have never been in that place. Please keep the victims in your prayers, and understand, this is much bigger than Mcquearey and should be treated as so.

The Truth    

MICHIGAN CRIMINAL FELONY TO NOT STOP OR IMMEDAITELY SEEK HELP FOR MINOR BEING RAPED


Michigan Criminal Statute States it is a Criminal Felony to watch a crime in the act such as rape and do nothing to stop it or seek help from the police.


Mike McQueary Committed a Felony by watching a boy get raped. He needs to be charged and arrested for his actions. He watched a boy being raped, so he either liked it or is a despicable piece of trash.


The board of trustees is no better.


It is sad to see Penn State called Penn “Pedophile” State as many people call it now.


There is no going forward when all the rats have not been thrown off the sinking ship.

The Truth    

IT IS BEING REPORTED MIKE MCQUEARY WATCHED UNTIL THE RAPE WAS DONE WITHOUT STOPPING IT


Mike McQueary NEEDS TO BE ARRESTED NOW AND CHARED. He is just as vile as the s*** who raped the boy.

Mike McQueary needs to go.

What makes this neanderthal think he deserves protective custody? Throw him out in the street and let the chips fall where they may. He deserves no security after what he allowed to continue to that poor boy and allow to be kept secret for 9 years. Acting like the victim in all of this? Total piece of trash.

There are moments that happen in your life where you can step up and be a hero, or slink away and be a coward. Too bad he chose the latter. Not so much for him, as for the poor little boy being raped by a monster. It's time for McQueary to leave Penn State and do some charity work for abused kids to gain some perspective and be a positive example for his young daughter.

What kind of message does that send to the players? 'If you're in deep s**t - drink alcohol. It solves everything.'
Real leadership material...
