He should stay, he wasn't involved.
He should stay, he did what his part by reporting it to somebody.
He should go, he didn't do enough.
He should go, he's ultimately responsible no matter what.
I have no clue. Fill me in.
If Paterno had a moral obligation to report the incident to the cops, why didn't McQueary's father (who knew about it 10-12 hours before Paterno) have the same obligation?
I am a slender female and I would call the police and jump that demon who was raping that child. That is not Monday morning quarterback bs ... I have no doubt what my actions would be in that case!
However ... that wimp went to his "daddy" and once it was in the hands of Paterno and others ... they just like the grad student ... just did bare minimum and went about their life knowing Sandusky had access to more boys and to their beloved luxury football complex.
They should all be so ashamed. Not one of them should get a pass ...

But, I must say, if a man is that far "gone", why should any man fear a lawsuit ?????
Somewhere, we need better people...
Yelling at some old man is neither kind nor respectful !
I just have to respond to a lot of the self-righteousness going on here. None of you have any idea what you would have done had you been in McCreary's shoes. We are looking at this with hindsight and detachment. We don't have any relationship to the people, we weren't there in the moment, we didn't experience the shock of what McCreary saw, we have none of the emotions, conflicts and panic that he experienced. If McCreary would not have been the one involved and was looking at this like you and me I would be willing to bet he would say something like "I would have drug him off the kid and kicked his ass". He wasn't brave and decisive and and acted like we wish he would have done. I am disappointed in McCreary and Paterno and a lot of people in this mess. But I believe most of them they are good, honest people. Don't treat with anywhere near the level of hatred and revulsion that we need to reserve for Sandusky.
