Wait, you mean there really is a NAMBLA????? I thought that was some **** South Park made up. I don't know whether to or
Seriously, those of you with kids and mainly boys, think back to the ages between 9-14, where kids are looking at their coaches/adults with nothing but trust and adoration. This is what they look for. These guys know exactly what to do, where to find them and how to get around people being suspicious of them.
Not to preach, but that's why as parents, you need to be untrusting of any men that trigger your "hinky meter"; A cop term my dad subscribed to. It's really your gut telling you something is off about some guy (or girl). That you need to trust when you feel it. Back when what happened to me occurred, priests were put on pedestals. My parents thought the pastor at our parish was a bit odd, but as long as I had a friend with me, we could help him move his stuff from up north to Detroit. I was lucky. I really feel awful for the victims of this whole PSU disaster.

Doyel's article on McQuery...
although he didn't really report anything1. Penn State is afraid to fire McQueary because that would leave the school vulnerable to a lawsuit under whistleblower laws, which protect employees like McQueary after reporting illegal activity at the workplace. Whether McQueary would be eligible for such protection, that's not for me to say. But that's one theory why he remains on the sideline, and Joe Paterno does not. McQueary reported an alleged crime to Paterno nine years ago, and circumstances emanating from that allegation have led us here. If McQueary is fired, the seeds of his dismissal would have been planted in 2002.
2. The Pennsylvania attorney general's office doesn't want to lose McQueary as a cooperative witness, should the AG decide to pursue legal charges against Paterno for not doing enough in 2002, and the AG's office has asked the school not to alienate McQueary by firing him. That's my belief, that the attorney general wants to leave the door cracked -- just barely cracked, but cracked nonetheless -- toward charges against Paterno. The charges might not stick, might not have a chance of sticking, but that wouldn't be the point. The AG's point would be: Let's send a message to everyone in this state that sex crimes must be reported, and not just to a supervisor but to the police.
Trustees request that McQueery not coach from the sideline.
Queme los Barcos!
