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.

This guy better go to prison for WHAT HE DIDNT DO. Normally when you 1st go to prison you're put on "suicide watch". I hope in this guy's case the prison guards give him everything he needs to be successful: a loaded gun, more then enough rope, liquor and sleeping pills.

This is F-N unbelievable! He had a chance to help this poor kid and he just walked out??? He should be charged as an accessory to the crime and the definition is as follows: A person with such knowledge may become an accessory by helping or encouraging the criminal in some way, OR simply by failing to report the crime to proper authority. I hope he drinks himself to death.

I want the creep to live a long life. Suicide is way too easy. He doesn't have the luxury of hiding his head in the sand and pretending he is part of this. Every victim after he saw the little boy being brutalized is also on his head. He needs to suffer the pain of the victims he allowed to be attacked every day until he dies of old age. I don't know how anyone who knew anything about this could put their head to a pillow and not be tortured at the thought of whether Sandusky raped another child that day. I don't know how they could look into their own childrens faces and not feel the pain that boy felt knowing that someone watched it happen and did nothing. How many knew that Sandusky was offering the kids to others? This could have been going on since 1977, 35 years. The victims are probably in the thousands.

This is unFNbelievable! He saw a grown man raping a kid and he just turns away and walks out and doesn't call the police? He should be charged as an accessory to the crime and the definition is as follows:

A person with such knowledge may become an accessory by helping or encouraging the criminal in some way, OR simply by failing to report the crime to proper authority.

What a puke, I hope he drinks himself to death!

He has no one to blame but himself for being out of a job.

He's lucky he isn't sharing a cell with Sandusky.

What a great example he sets -- if you see a child being raped - do nothing. If you've got problems -- get drunk.

Finally decides to speak and like everyone else at the school, says all the wrong things.

Re: the "double fisting" comment. What a singularly unfortunate choice of words. These people really just don't get it, do they?

Failure to report this hideous crime to police, is nearly as inexcusable as the deed itself. Good riddance, a-hole. May someone perform the same act upon your 2-year old daughter, and someone else cover it up.

Whine, whine, whine. Are we supposed to feel sorry for McQueary?
He should have been forced to step down immediately. This whole cover up goes far beyond what we already know.

As sick as this story is, I doubt he is getting death threats from anybody upset that he did nothing to protect that boy. Instead it's probably Penn State supporters upset at him for saying anything at all. The whole state of Pennsylvania seems to have their heads up their back sides on this one.

DOUBLE-FIST yourself in your BA*LS, that's 1/one millionth of the pain you caused by not reporting to the Police what you witnessed MONSTER PERVERT "COACH" SANDUSKY do to a little boy in the PENN STATE shower.
-----------------------------------------------------------
You will need more than ALCOHOL to erase the GUILT you will or should feel for lack of backbone and protection you could have rendered to that young boy in the PENN STATE shower.
-----------------------------------------------------------
SCRUB PENN STATE, CANCEL the football season, RETIRE the OLD F*CKS with no moral compass, open the jail cells for PENN STATE staff and let the healing begin.
