You little trolls...what the hell happened to innocent until proven guilty...oh no it's easier to hide behind the anonymity of the internet and make smug **** comments...go to eBaums world or Break.com with your trolling...well bring it on. I knew this man and he never acted inappropriately towards me or my peers. If he's guilty, let a court decide...not some **** behind a computer screen.
Good point. Many people comment as though this man has already been proven guilty--and some are blaming his students for the situation. The courts should decide this matter.

But the law is clear: Teachers should not engage in sexual relationships with students, no matter how willing the students appear to be. Minors who are questioning their sexual identity are extremely vulnerable...no adult should take advantage of that.

This is tough on the Gunnery community...no one should take delight in that.

it should not be a tough tough situation, a teacher should never put him or her self in a position that an accusation will be made against them, never be alone anywhere with a student and immediately report and deal with any inappropriate actions, remarks or comments from students, the first time you let a stray comment or action slide you have jeopardized your career.
Sad, but true. Being a teacher these days is like walking through a mine field.

Let's let the process work- it doesn't matter what you think it matters what happened. This is a school full of human beings-- and peoples' lives are involved, so a little humility and perspective should be in place.

To The Duke of Deception:
How sad is your life? Are you envious of The Gunnery? Please tell us what "incredible: school you attend or attended. I'm sure there is plenty I could comment in a negative way about your precious school. You need to grow up and worry about the situation at hand and not look for a boyfriend for yourself.. Now lets get back to what is important, The situation with Rhino, and not waste anymore time with your non-appropriate comments. I was not a student at The Gunnery, but I know him and he is one of the best persons I have ever met. Get to know him before you judge him. God bless Rhino and the kids,.....

Does anyone on this post even know anything about the Gunnery? Did your child go there? Mine did and Mr. Reinhardt was a good teacher, coach and a kind person. Innocent until proven guilty!

You can't look at a picture and assume hes a bad person. sure he was gay. Who cares. he never put students in uncomfortable situations. He was a great coach, and a great guy. i could walk on over to him whenever there was something on my mind. You guys saying this trash about him and you have no clue who he is. I could gaurentee that if you met him you would think much differently. The student still in this case is a jackass and this will all be over soon and you will all see how innocent he is.

No this guy is a homosexual. Teenage boys are a delicacy in their mind... much like guinea pigs are to South Americans.

Your parents are liberals, and if you randomly told them you`re gay at dinner tomorrow night they`d be cool with it. Trust me, give it a shot.

Do what I did, go to the mother and pay her off, convince her its the best for the child to not be marked as "damaged goods." Then, chase around the victim her whole life, take notes of all her enemies because they important to keep around, use the entire department, take everything from her until you get her past the statute of limitations. That is how you save your pediphile of a friend get away with child sexual assault. I should know! I protect the Voccola family! They are my friends! Now, where is that box full of money.

James J. Honis of the Bridgeport Police Department likes little boys. Likes looking at their pictures. Likes touching himself while little boys are around. He liked to hang around the Voccola bike shop on East Main Street. DIRTY JIMMY HONIS! You can buy all the hoes you like but those of us that really know you know you really, really like skinny little boys! Just like Eddie Voccola!
