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.

Unbelievable. Sack of ****. This man does not deserve to be free. There should be a good samaritan law in PA, to jail the losers who see the rape of a child in action and fail to interfere.

unfortunately, laws are not tough enough for those who stand idly by and let the worst kind of harm come to a child.
(Pennsylvania Failure to Report Cons. Stat. Ch. 23, § 6319
A mandatory reporter who willfully fails to report as required commits a misdemeanor of the third degree for the first violation and a misdemeanor of the second degree for a second or subsequent violation.)
I have no clue as to why any one of these men should be allowed protection. It's mind boggling that so many knew and they enabled that twisted pervert to commit his crimes on the innocent. i agree with the majority commenting here, that one is just as guilty as the next for knowing and saying nothing-their punishment should be swift, severe and deserving. Sandusky deserves a special kind of day of reckoning. These "men's men" deserve no special treatment whatsoever.

If he had done the right thing, Sandusky would be the only one in trouble. It was McQuery's responsibility, not his superiors. He could have saved a lot of people--not to mention the victims--from heartache. JoPa is still a quality gentleman and gave his life and heart to PSU and the players. After Sandusky, McQuery is the one at greatest fault. He's gonna need some serious conversations with God if he wants out of the darkness he's in.

There are only two explanations why this red-headed POS did nothing to stop the rape of an innocent child: either he is a TOTAL COWARD, or perhaps he was a former victim of Sandusky and was terrified of the consequences if he intervened and didn't want his own victimization getting out. Either way, still makes him a coward...what if this was HIS own child? Karma is a B***H and the demons of hell will catch up with this loser.

After doing nothing for the rape victim this coward continued to work with Sandusky closely for years. Watched him bring numerous young boys to football events. You don't work in a department and not know what is going on. Mikey knew for years that this was a pattern and did nothing to stop it. Reading the grand jury report it is obvious that Sandusky showered more than the players. Da, was there anyone that didn't know? An independent investigation needs to be done on all that had any involvement in the football program. Bet there will be plenty of guilt to go around. Sanduskys wife needs to go to jail too. What did she think he was doing with the little boys in the basement bedroom? This creep had foster kids too. Mikeys daughter needs to be examined for sexual abuse also. I feel bad for her because some day she will find out what a piece of s--t her dad is. His wife needs to leave him now so her child will have some respect for her later. Hope Mikeys familly is rich because his future employment possibilities are nil. No one is going to forget that mug. I actually think he is more hated than tot mom. Maybe they can get together for some double fisted drinking.

You have small children, sir. I pray a pedophile doesn't prey on your children someday. This is every parents nightmare. I want for you to remember for the rest of your life that helpless child in the shower with an overpowering adult committing violence on him, whom you witnessed. Every single day for the rest of your life. When you look at your own children I want for you to remember that precious child you walked out on who needed your help. And when you face your God one day, you will have to answer for your despicable behaviors in not rescuing that child. God help you.

When does his victimhood stop???? At least Paterno admits that he should have done more, but NONE of them, and I mean NONE, to my knowledge have uttered ONE WORD of a apology to ANY of the victims. Real frigging classy, calling up your team and admitting that alcohol is the way to solve your problems. You should be in protective custody you stinking filthy ass****. It's all about him and his problems. I am in amazement that a JOB can be that drastically important that in light of all the revelations that have come out and about to come out that you still try to call all the shots and hang on to your employment by the fingernails. You must be some demon or something, because no human being with any soul whatsoever brags about being in protective custody and binge drinking instead of offering a sincere and humble apology for being an effing coward. You are incredibly unbelievable. You know who I feel the sorryest for besides the victims of all this is your daughter. How in God's name can you possibly explain that to her when she is older and able to understand, that you walked away from something like that. And to get a PAID leave at that. Why doesn't Penn State just come right out and admit that after a while when they think this has all blown over that you will get your job back. That is the only explanation that the new coach is ALLOWING you to address the players at ALL. Like you know something that nobody else knows, something so big that they have to let you come back or the whole world will know what it is. You must have some amazing blackmail photos or video or SOMETHING. Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, can be this frigging ****y.

It sounds to me like he is only feeling sorry for himself. I have to wonder about his wife. Why is she stickig with this low class piece of crap? She should be smart enough to know this loser isn't worth the time of day and probably is man enough to protect her or her daughter. I can only hope that he spends the rest of his life never having a job anywhere near children because they will always be in danger. In fact, he should spend the rest of his life doing nothing more then sweeping streets. Do they have a registry for those who see childhood sexual abuse and ignore it?

Someone should ask this dude. "what if someone saw a guy raping his daughter, and didn't stop the attack, but told his boos?" I bet he would be furious, and pissed like the parents are. how anyone could see someone raping a young kid, and not intervien is BEYOND ME. I would have called the cops to report a murder cause I would have killed sandusky.

Prisoners have a code of conduct. Hurting children violated the code. Prisoners with names such as Meathead, T-Bone, BigBuster, ForkLift and Porkchop, don't take kindly to guys like Sandusky.

Right on. Take the 2 year old away. He is double fisting booze? In front of his daughter? What a fricken loser. He still is only worried about his job, his "players". Has this ***** ever once tried to find the victim and apologize to him or give the poor child (who is now 20 if he hasn't committed suicide by now) some explanation as to why he just walked away from the crime scene? This guy needs to be arrested as an accomplice. Why is Sandusky out on bail??? Why? Why?
