What Would You Do If You Saw A Child Being Sexually Abused?

Penn State's Mike McQueary saw Jerry Sandusky raping a child. What do you think of his response?

If you saw a child getting raped, what would you do? Mike McQueary had that very decision to make on March 1, 2002. He saw a 10-year-old boy getting raped in a locker room shower by, for all intents and purposes, his boss, Jerry Sandusky. Let me make this clear ... the boy was being sodomized. I hate to force the visual on you, but this is what went down. Mike, who was 28 at the time, walked into what he thought was an empty locker room and heard what he thought was people having sex in the shower. When he looked up, what he saw was very different.

What would you have done?

If you saw a man raping a boy, you would:

a) Leave the room and call your dad for advice.

b) Leave the room and go tell that man's boss.

c) Confront and physically stop what was going on; beat the crap out of the man; scoop the boy up and bring him to safety.

d) Call 911.

McQueary chose to go with choice A and then choice B. That was the WRONG decision. The more I read about this story, the more infuriated (and nauseated) I become. Who does that? Who just walks away?
