(I know that a child can't "agree" to the act, and that its still rape, whether or not the kid was complying...I don't want to sound like I'm saying its not rape if there is no force.)
That is true of did he walk away? The only thing I can imagine, and I'm sorry if this is too graphic, but even though we call it "rape," it probably wasn't force. In other words, the kid agreed to the act. I'm not saying that isn't rape, it most certainly is...I'm just trying to imagine what McQueary saw that made him turn around instead of throw something. Maybe McQueary thought he was seeing sex, not rape. And maybe Paterno thought the issue was sex, not rape? I know that that is hard to swallow when the kid was apparently about ten, but its the only thing I can figure. Maybe *I* am naive, but I can't believe that someone would witness the forcible rape of a resisting child and walk away.
Spoken like a smarmy-card-sender, Greymase :)
