Don't know if this particular guy did what they're claiming or not and, that's not for me to decide. My point being this: there seem to be a lot of people being tried and convicted in the press before they even get to court and others are being exploited by the press, e.g. too much information about victims of sex crimes who are minors is being published (enough information that people have no problem figuring out "who" without needing to see the name in print). Over the last few weeks I have read and heard completely biased accounts in the local papers & on the radio as well as TV news out of Buffalo. The word "allegedly" not even being used by police or press...nor is any effort expended to protect the identity of the innocent. Damn if this isn't starting to look like the Salem Witch Trials...

IF my house caught on fire and I stood there frozen in a state of shock and did nothing to try and stop the fire, would I be charged with arson?

I completely agree. Used to be innocent until proven guilty. Now they are considered guilty before anyone has even heard the truth behind anything.....having their names slandered in the paper and on t.v. just makes it harder to prove their case because in the eyes of the polls they are already guilty

I happen to know this family well.......hardworking people who have been in business in Scio forever!! Sounds to me like the local investigators are trying to make a case against someone that just maybe........they don't happen to like.....corrupt cops are everywhere and Scio is not exempt....Thinking of you John,Sue and the rest of the family.

This is just like the small towns of Pennsylvania. The first thing you are taught, even as a child is, if you hear the fire alarm to go outside and get away. Don't try to put out the fire, don't take anything out with you, just get out. The police and press decide they need more cases and pick people to put the blame on. I don't know this situation, this man, or anything other than what is posted here. BUT I would be highly upset if this was my brother, friend, etc. If we are supposed to put out a fire as opposed to escaping with our lives OR be charged with arson.... Someone should be teaching EVERYONE how to put fires out. My rant is over for now.
