I'm not saying he shouldn't have called the police or should but in this situation. Going above his responsibility of calling the police is a personal choice. A choice he has to live with. Personal shame is more damaging than what any of these members could hope for.

No kidding.

I don't have children, but I imagine being that kid. Try it.

Forced to submit to anal rape, you turn around and see another coach watching you. That coach... turns and walks away (to call his dad and go home). He saw you getting raped and then left you alone with the rapist. I have no idea how McQueary slept that night -- or any night since. How he couldn't even call 911 is beyond me.
