Happy Friday! Here’s a BG12345 to start your weekend off right!
PS: Here is a unique perspective on one aspect of the Penn State debacle. If you don’t like to mix opinions with your gossip, don’t read it.
OPINION: Why Penn State Must Protect Mike McQueary
Dear Penn State Board of Trustees,
While Mike McQueary might not have done everything perfectly, The Whistleblower must be protected! Firing him sends the very dangerous signal that if witnesses don’t do everything perfectly, they will be punished too. This will dissuade others from coming forward in the future.
Simply witnessing a violent crime can be traumatizing. Both victims AND witnesses must be handled patiently and compassionately. If you want to create an environment of “See something, say something,” on the Penn State campus, you MUST protect those witnesses who DO come forward… even if they don’t do so in a the ideal way or time frame.
Protect The Whistleblower!
