Maybe it's because I'm from Pennsylvania, but every conversation around here seems to turn to the Sandusky trial at one point or another.
My local paper covers the latest testimony on the front page each morning and we all read with horror the similar stories from one young man after another. Though this information is horrible, the most heated debate seems to revolve around the role and responsibilities of assistant coach Mike McQueary, a 26 year old graduate student at the time.
In his testimony, McQueary saw the assault of a boy in the shower. He testified he saw the actual "sexual act" (without being too graphic, but you can read it yourself HERE) with his own eyes. He made a loud noise with a locker door to break it up, looked into the eyes of the 10-12 year old boy, then left to call his dad from his office. (source)
It's Feedback Friday and here is where the debate seems to center...
My friends seem to be divided, and passionately so, about McQueary's responsibilities on that night.
Should McQueary have physically removed the child from Sandusky that night?
Is his physical inaction excusable because he was a student and subordinate?
If you could put yourself in his shoes at the age of 26, what would you imagine your response to be - similar or different from McQueary's?
