1) Some people are mad at him because he, at 6'5 220something and a former(barely) division 1 athlete spersonally witnessed a 10 year old boy being anally raped and didn't physically intervene, or call the police, or yell, or take any other action to immediately end the assault.
That is Megan McArdle's bitch with McQueary over at the Atlantic. She said she can understand leaving the scene for 5 minutes or whatever with the trauma, but then after you've composed yourself, go back (or get someone else and go back) and stop what is happening and call the police.
In all seriousness, we all know exactly what to do. It's very cut and dry. And it's very easy to be critical while not being in that position. Right or wrong, it's not always that simple when you're the one who sees it in the real world. I can guarantee of those who give him the most shit, there are plenty who would have done the same and there are some who would have done less. It's sad, but it's definitely true.
