Unbelievable: Disturbing:

"The special grand jury is comprised of citizens of Jefferson County who are a reflection of Steubenville and the people of this community. They have worked hard and have sacrificed a great deal to take on this important task. This was tough work. It took a long time to get all of the information needed to make their decisions. But barring any new evidence I believe their work is done," continued DeWine.

I don't believe they reflected what the majority thinks about character and ethics. Whats criminal and whats not.

The few indicted are just scapegoats. Maybe when they have their days in court ( I am sure they will plead not guilty) maybe other stuff will come out.

As stated previously....1919 Black Sox; evidence, what evidence???

School Board do your job; clear the air.

When sex crimes happen, employers and officials must choose whether to put their reputations and institutions first or the safety of victims first. And we as a society must punish those who choose selfishly to put their interests first. That’s the best way to make sure that employers and officials help, not hinder, investigations into sex offenses. It’s always tempting and usually safe for law enforcement to pursue charges against sex offenders. It’s tougher and often controversial for law enforcement to pursue charges against those who ignore or enable sex offenses. But it’s crucial that both those who commit AND those who conceal sex crimes be punished.

Dear School Board members - why would you quickly approve retirement for Mr. Rhinaman who is charged with 4 felony charges? Treating him as innocent until proven guilty is understandable, even to the point of keeping him on a leave of absence until that time but to entitle him to retirement while knowing he might have committed felonies while employed at the School? If he is convicted this is a kick in the pants to the hardworking, honest residence of Steubenville! When (not if) this is presented to millions of people on a national news/magazine show will you be ok with the decision? Let us know if something is being overlooked here. Will you do the same for Mr. McVey?

There indictments will not bring back the girl's dignity. It is sad that responsible adults did not do the right thing. However, to indict the superintendent and not the coach or the principal is a miscarriage. The AG alluded to them- disgusting, reprehensible, mean-spirited- and they still have jobs as role models for children. Maybe the school board will appoint the coach the new superintendent, since he already is. By the way- where does the herald star stand on these issues- why so silent

BTW...Mr. Ranallo is a good choice to step up and fill this position...he is an honorable and good administrator.

As a protest of the illegal actions of school administrators and officials, there will be a boycott of the Big Red semi-finals and finals if they should make it. Please join and let Steubenville City Schools know that the education of our children is paramount to winning the state championship in high school football.

This case is a prime example of why school boards use of "executive sessions" should be monitored by a third party.

It's obvious that letting school employees work from home instead of suspending then firing them for failing to do their job of reporting means the Steubenville rape case is not over and the guilty will skate punishment they deserve. I am sure the circle of guilty extends well beyond those newly indicted, and probably into this school board and Coach Sac. I feel sorry for a town and people who put football ahead of the crime of rape. How sad for you!

Nov-27-13 7:43 AM talking about signs and stuff at the game if just refusing to go to the game?.

Has everyone forgot all the people involved in this thing.

All the texters, tweeters, video makers, party organizers, booze suppliers, hosts? Now we have a few people taking a fall only one if whom might have been actually involved that night.

Being all those adjectives described by the AG, while he says are not criminal, makes me queezy about having them around.

If one guy is locked up for texting pictures,is he the only one who sent them?

How could this crime be so wide spread and only two people get charged for not reporting?

Is this newspaper taking an editorial stand at some point and time, either yea or nmaybe of their thoughts.

Just wondering all these questions.

May all those who somehow participated or covered this up (convicted or not) spend the rest of your lives knowing that your actions were unethical, greedy, stupid, mean and just plain heartless! May your friends, community and family lose trust and respect in you! May you one day wake up and confess to yourself and others that what you did was wrong and start to teach others of your wrongs and how to learn from them! What comes around goes around - Convicted or not Karma will come back to visit you! I was taught to "always do the right thing even when nobody is looking" and "make your bed as you have to lie in it” some great advise that has never let me down!

Tingett, whatever you feel comfortable with. I know there are some who are planning on protesting with signs outside of the game. Others are planning on not attending the games as their form of protest.

The most important thing right now is to get the word out that we will not accept the actions of these crooks, putting high school football over the education and safety of our children.

Call your friends and/or post on your Facebook timeline and let others know about the boycott.

"Pleas or a day in court to come"

Above is the title of the editorial found in The HS November 26th.

Those of you boycotting a football team or game, may also find yourself cancelling a subscription to a newspaper.

It presents many facts we all knew, but falls short of finding fault for the action or lack thereof with others that participated or knew what was going on that August in 2012.

What were the words the Ag used for those people; they fit the editorial also.

Just my opinion.

It's nice to see that most of the lies Goddard, K-Lie Anonymous, and many of their followers have been proven false. No gang rape, nobody drugged, etc, etc. Also so disgusting that the "movement" (of jealousy and racism) that claimed to be supporting the victim, were the ones who posted her name and address on the internet, got Local Leaks shut down, and made the victim's Life even worse. Like I said when this started almost a year ago, what a bunch of morons! The witch hunt is over, and DeWine and the grand jury has attempted to justify the money they have wasted because of two wannabe internet screwballs. Merry freakin' Christmas, Dereck Lustotter!

PS Our local newspaper and television news was reporting on this for MONTHS before the hate movement started in mid December of last year. It was front page news every time a hearing or new evidence came up. If that's not enough, then you just don't understand this media. They aren't CNN, who can spend 24/7 talking about a single new item. Big "duh" there!
