Penn State Scandal

Full Investigation Demanded

11/14/2011 12:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Was there a concerted effort to coverup Jerry Sandusky's alleged child sex abuse scandal at Penn State? That's what Pennsylvania state legislator Scott Conklin wants to know. He joined us today and answered this question: Why not fire Mike McQueary?

Plus, the Conrad Murray documentary reveals behind the scenes lawyer fights ... and big tears from Conrad. And maybe that's the problem -- did the doc love Michael Jackson too much?

The picture TMZ claims to be Sandusky is inaccurate. The man in the picture is not Sandusky.

McCreary should have been the first fired. He began the cover-up when he failed to intervene at the very moment he saw the disgusting pig raping that little boy. Every citizen of the United States has the ability to perform a Citizen's Arrest when they witness a felony. Pretty sure child rape is a felony! And this guy decides to walk away, he was the first player of the cover-up. I would say it is no longer accessory after the fact, it became accessory to the crime. He should be charged, too. They all should. I am so sorry for him and every boy who was hurt and damaged by that despicable animal. And I do not remotely buy into the argument that McCreary was young and couldn't appreciate what his responsibility was, I think I knew at 15 if I saw something like that I had to call the police first. How have they lived with themselves all of these years? I just can't fathom it. To know that people can be this monstrous in such an organized manner, people some in society have looked up to and elevated to iconic status is so terrorizing to my soul and sensibilities. Does Paterno still get his pension/retirement? It was upsetting to see Paterno's son say he was thinking about his father and crying. He should be thinking about how he's ever going to be able to speak his child raping protector of a father again. This situation is so ugly from every angle.

Thank the lord that everyone is finally seeing through the Kardashians BULL****. Everything about this family is FAKE from their marriages down to their lies that they tell the public. Just accept that your 15 minutes are over and GO AWAY!

allowing him to walk out so easily will make other victims think twice about stepping forward, and we need them to step forward.
The entire ordeal should be moved out of that county so that the victims might feel some faith in justice and security in coming forward.
There are to many connections and possible involvement locally.

Max has it right about the millenials. He also has it right about the Kardashians being in the 1 percent.
the millenials are different and NOT the same as the genexers. They are conscious and aware and will propel humanity forward. Hopefully, Kendall will be representative of her generation as well, but she's got a tough road just being member of a shallow money focused family. You are way off on the millenials Harvey.

Harvey,
your comments to Conklin are completely on point. It's terrible that he was so clearly using this to his political advantage but I appreciate that you asked the same questions as I had. Now an "anonymous" source is saying that McQueary stopped the assault he witnessed, though the details of how are frustratingly oblique. Did he send the child home w/ Sandusky? Did he drive him home himself? Why didn't he call the police if he witnessed a rape? Why did he tell the Grand Jury he stopped the assault if he, in fact, did so? Please help clear this up for people like me, because this whole thing is too horrible to understand.
Much Love,
Heather

Dear Harvey..
This is the first time i've ever chimed into comment on any subject or scandal in my life at 38 years o****e but i hope you let my voice be heard on the penn state scandal..How is not Mike Mcueary in handcuffs yet??..Wether he stopped it or not he didn't call law enforcement and for the next seven or so years this monster continued to rape children..Please do everything in your power to put Mcqueary away in prison..I don't even have children but i have a niece and two nephews and it turns my stomach to think about it..
Thank you
