Mike McQueary: I Broke Up Alleged Jerry Sandusky Rape

by at . Comments

A day after Jerry Sandusky gave a disturbing interview to Bob Costas - in which the former Penn State defensive coordinator admitted to showering with young boys - Mike McQueary has also made news for his role in the alleged cover-up of child molestation at the university.

McQueary is the assistant coach who, according to a grand jury report, walked in on Sandusky anally raping a 10-year old in a shower in 2002. He has come under extreme fire for going to his father about the incident, as opposed to the police, while also not actually stopping the act.

But a new email has surfaced, sent by McQueary to a reporter last week, in which the ex-coach says he DID break up the rape and DID speak to authorities about what he witnessed. This is what it reads:

You are the first person I have told this ... and I don't know you extremely well ... and I have been told bye (sic) officials to not say anything...

I did stop it, not physically ... but made sure it was stopped when I left that locker room ... I did have discussions with the official at the university in charge of police ... no one can imagine my thoughts or wants to be in my shoes for those 30-45 seconds...trust me.

Do with this what you want ... but I am getting hammered for handling this the right way ... or what I thought at the time was right ... I had to make tough impacting quick decisions.

What an enormous, tragic mess.
