Joe Paterno as a pervert enabler???? I seriously doubt it. He is the now dead scapegoat used by the pervert American community and the perverts running Penn State to trash him (as the only nationally known celebrity at Penn State) and take the focus off the despicable Penn State president Graham Spanier whose doctoral thesis was on wife swapping and who arrived at Penn State vowing to make it the most "gay friendly" campus in the US. He certainly saw to it that it had the most "gay friendly" president and likely the most "gay friendly" board of trustees as well.
Let's look at the man you claim as a source---the aptly named Michael McQueary. If McQueary "personally witnessed Sandusky having anal sex with a young boy in the shower," etc., and McQueary was a "normal person" what did McQueary do? Did he walk into the shower and separate Sandusky from the young boy? No. Did he shout out to Sandusky to leave the kid alone or to the kid to flee the shower room? No. Did McQueary then and there cold cock Sandusky who was about old enough to be his grandfather? No. Did McQueary even call the cops on Sandusky promptly so that Sandusky could be arrested that night? No. McQueary told his own father a couple of days later and then went to Joe Paterno (not the state police, not the Bellefont police, not the Center County Sheriff, not the Center County prosecutor, with his story or so he says. Assuming that he did, he lacked the stature to be automatically believed.
Joe Paterno followed the campus rules and reported to HIS superiors who then killed the investigation (to protect the guilty??? and not just Sandusky). Several of the higher ups have been indicted now belatedly and are facing trials. If found guilty, may they rot in prison as long as pervert Sandusky. Next, investigate Second Mile Foundation and its apparent role in pimping fatherless prepubescent boys to Sandusky (and to anyone else??? America wants to know).
Were boys provided to politicians? See a very interesting book called the Franklin County Coverup written by a former Nebraska State Senator who investigated even worse behavior in Omaha, involving judges, FBI agents, bankers, local police, and political figures using boys from a juvenile detention center and making them murder one another when the molesters were done with them.
About ten years ago, the elected Centre County prosecutor was investigating Sandusky. He stayed late in his office on a Friday night, was observed leaving his office with his laptop and getting in his own car. He was never seen again. The laptop, its hard drive utterly destroyed was found in a river bed not to far from Bellefont. No one seems overly interested in that cold case. Why not? When I practiced criminal defense law in Connecticut, if a prosecutor disappeared under such circumstances, the state and local police would not have rested from the moment of disappearance, the body would have been recovered and the perps brought to justice. That would be the same in almost any jurisdiction in the country.
The fact is that this entire case stinks to high heaven and the stink does not arise from Joe Paterno or from his grave. The current governor used to be state attorney general and this stuff occurred on his watch. Spanier makes the late Tiny Tim look like He-Man or GI Joe. He is still apparently a tenured sociology professor at PSU although he has also been hired by Obozo for some God-forsaken (as usual) reason. Spanier, before arriving at PSU disciplined University of Nebraska football players for the incredible crime of actually praying in a group before a football game. OTOH, Spanier apparently fully participated in telling his subordinates to cover up for Sandusky.
BTW, I am not more than an occasional fan of college football although I rooted for University of Alabama to administer punishment to the heathen Obozo worshiping University of Notre Shame. I do respect Joe Paterno's legacy of excellence in amateur sport and I resent that he is being used after his death by the perps of this disgrace to deflect attention from their misdeeds especially when he is not available to defend himself.
Like most civilized folks, I have absolutely no use for Sandusky or anyone like him. Put him in a maximum security prison and keep him in the general population and the inmates will relieve the taxpayers of the burden of Sandusky's room and board as Wisconsin prisoners did with the late Jeffrey Dahlmer. Did I mention that McQueary is some sort of subordinate football coach at PSU???
the case of Ray Gricar (sp?) is certainly a strange one....
McQueary testified to what he saw in 2010, while Paterno was still alive. I agree with you that McQueary acted reprehensibly. He should have stopped the act and notified police immediately but once he told Paterno what happened, I think Paterno should have notified police. If Paterno did not notify law enforcement than he was enabling Sandusky unless one believes that McQueary lied under oath about notifying Paterno.
Are you crazy....if you believe this is what happened and Jopa was so great why didn't he go public right then, threaten to resign if some thing wasn't done and end the abuse of those kids. JOPA was more interested in his legacy than anything else.
Michael McQueary was a product of the Paterno Way.

You are 200% percent correct that in any normal jurisdiction this “mystery” would be solved and no stone left unturned. This stinks to high heaven.
