To the editor:
The young rapists' conviction should not be a surprise to anyone, nor should this conviction be the end. It should be the beginning of bringing this community to task for its part in enabling these criminals to enjoy their "recreation" in the interests of protecting the local football program.
I strongly urge the attorney general to completely investigate all involved including the district attorney, local police, school administrators, coaches and parents, who, to this day, have not come forward with the truth and their role in enabling or covering up the truth. Although this will be a big job and challenge, we must complete this investigation and leave not one stone unturned. Steubenville will, in the long run, be a better community for it.
