Lots of coverup criminals in Steubenville. Let the grand jury do it's job then indict all those who knew about the rape [BOE, School Administrators, Coach Sac, etc.] and didn't report it, or provided the alcohol and homes where the rape took place. I hope all of you are scared and go to jail for a good long stay so Jane Doe gets the justice she deserves. Steubenville will learn "Rape is Rape" and your "Big Red Football" not above the law.

LET IT ALL HANG OUT as the old song says! Believe it folks, it is ALL hanging out at the secret grand jury. Word is that plenty of witnesses have stepped forward before the proceeding even started to get immunity deals. Who will be left holding the bag??? The school board? The coaches? The negligent parents? Bring out Monty Hall....tell 'em Monty: "You can have door #1: Jail time; door #2 civil suit and bankruptcy or door #2 dismissal.....SPIN THAT WHEEL OF FORTUNE AND LET THE FUN BEGIN!
