At my old high school, our math teacher used to also run an after school photography club. Was a nice guy but some of us always suspected a little something was awry. Well 25 years later, they charged him with the same thing as this principal.

Again, nice guy, did a lot for the school but still fraught with human frailties and ended up abusing countless boys.

You should be a shamed of yourself. Why are you married with a family if your attracted to little boys. This makes me sick. A Principal Do u mean pedophile? Do you want someone to sexually abuse your children you sick f***....You should kill yourself while your at it.
Lighten up Francis.... Give him his due in court.. Maybe this kid s on drugs and is an attention getter. Or maybe he has an ax to grind... Or maybe his parents put him up to this.. Or maybe he is telling the truth......The point is you have no right besmirching this man or ruining his children.. Because that is what you just dis....

This man Earnie Jackson, that was mentioned in earlier postings, is now the head principal at our local catholic grammar school in Netcong, nj and there are some concerns with the swirling of some "stories" we are hearing about him. Scary stories i might add... where can we find some truth and facts to this since going by rumor or baseless stories doesn't get us anywhere at all but we need to know the truth. Thanks

I find it interesting that you and your wife can be so judgmental.
You respond without any facts or evidence. The district attorney has the same problem.Isn't it strange that after all these months the district attorney's office has no proof. I think they are dragging this out in hopes that people like you, who don't have regard for the facts or the truth. will believe as you do. People are praying every day that the truth will come out.

Even with an eye witness Sandusky denied it... Very difficult to catch them. Just glad Rossi is out. But-how does society prevent him from doing this again? Rossi is unemployeed, not cured.

All of you who 'killed the messenger' and stuck up for the pedophile principal, now that the texts from him to this poor kid have come out, now that he's plead guilty to these despicable acts, all of you who were "sure" and "convinced" and "positive" he was honorable and the kid was making it up, What do you say now? All would like to hear from you. You all sounded like his religious congregation with your blind and sheeplike ways.

This Rossi guy is the lowest form of human that can be. The parents of this kids should hang him by his Ba**s. I hope he rots in jail and Tyron and Jermaine will take his manhood away. Hey Rossi what ever evil you do to others it comes back to you. GOD DONT LIKE UGLY> P.S. Just feel horrible for your wife and kid(s). What a nice place to work when you are a pedophile.
michael Rossi is a child rapist. many boys call themselves Rossi's boys. Michael Rossi seduces young boys who are poor, destitute from broken and troubled homes. Rossi seduces them and then sodomizes them and pays them off and then passes them around to a network of PEDOPHILES in Orange and Ulster counties. The names of some of the most prominent men in politics, government school districts and police dept.'s would tumble the very fabric of New York State power base.Many of these men have been comprimised by complicity in the trafficking of these children to men of power.It is horrific and that is why Francis Phillips of the orange County D.A.;s Office got Jim Farrell the Sullivan County D.A.'s Office to prosecute Michael Rossi he took a plea deal a misdemeanor with no probation or demanded restrictions , jail time or counselling or retribution to the victim. that speaks volumes to what is really going on in the network of PEDOPHILES.

When Michael Rossi was in Hastings on the Hudson School District he was in trouble their also for vile and pornographic mesages to a student. So history repeats itself and Michael Rossi should have done prison time.He pled guilty because he couldn't afford his past history being exposed.Another Jerry Sandusky.Send the message to these pedophiles our children are not to be exploited, sexually harassed or abised by these lowest of low child sexual predators. Stealing the innocence of children entrusted to their care.Evil PEDOPHILES.

Is this the same cold blooded killer Michael Rossi that worked in John Wayne Gacys crawlspace with his cold blooded killing friend David Cram? Those 2 Gacys associates killed a lot of people in 1976-1978 in a quarry in Illinois. Illinois secetly blamed Gacy for the whole thing and then secretly cleaned it up. Rossi and Cram fooled the police back then. I hope the whole truth will come out now. It will be interesting to see how Illinois will handle this. Those were some rough times back then. Someone needs to ask Michael Rossi if he was the same Rossi who worked with Gacy and if he is, then ask him to turn himself and David Cram in. Search Rossi Cram Gacy shadowreports.

Michael J. Rossi has a history of victimizing boys and girls see Sauerhaft vs. Hastings on the Hudson School district . Michael J. Rossi was accused of the same sexual harassment of 14 year old students.Washingtonville School District knew he was sick and should not have been given access to children.There is a NETWORK OF pedophiles in high places being protected and it goes right to JERRY SANDUSKY serial child rapist.All are connected.

Geez, Sam, I read thru' all that legalize and Rossi just had the misfortune of being an overwhelmed HS principal when some teen-age jerk (M.X.)couldn't keep his keyboard under control. Not well handled at all from an administration standpoint but typical of the administration of H-o-H at that time. Not finding any criminal activity NOR a link to Sandusky. PROOF or factual info would lift this discussion.

John Wayne Gacy connection? This Michael J. Rossi looks just like the same Michael J. Rossi who worked with John Wayne Gacy. I remember seeing this Rossi guy in Deep Quarry Dupage County a lot of times with David F. Cram and sometimes with Gacy himself. Someone needs to find out if this is the same guy.I am 99% certain that this is the guy I saw many many times. I still need to find his friend David F. Cram. Somebody please reply to this.
