I'm still just waiting on someone, anyone to tell me what it is exactly that mainstreet brings to Frankfort. I am just not sure what there role is for Frankfort. I was under the impression that the Chamber of Commerce was an organization that was to bring business/industry to Frankfort. I don't see a lot of new businesses coming into town. does that mean that they are failing? why is it that Frankfort just cannot get new business to locate in this town? These are the issues that need to be addressed.
Let this ol Guy fill ya in on one fer Mr Shan (the man) Sheridan. He was on WILO bout a month er so spoutin off about a GRANT that HE Got fer the County "Brownfield Grant" and how HE wuz gonna help the County tear down ALL the delapidated buildings around Clinton County with the FOUR HUNDRED THOUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS he got. Today June 7, 2013 Commissioner Bert Weaver wuz on WILO and said the GRANT was WORTHLESS ta the COUNTY! It would NOT pay ONE THIN DIME fer Tearin down ANYTHING! Whay CHA gonna do with the Four Hundred THOUsand Mr Sheridan? Now SOMEONE call THAT spitten Venom!

They should be really proud of themselves.

Violating a rape victim's rights.
Getting the police to lie.
Manipulating the media.

And now... to act like nothings going on.

What does all the silence this morning on topix say???

How about:
1. Oh shit. We are going down.
2. Oh shit. How do I extricate myself from this?
3. Oh shit. I promised stuff and now they are going to see the real me.

Come on Koolaid drinkers... Stop drinking it before you go down with the "elect".

The person might not present themselves in a popular writing style, but I have yet to see you blow any holes in his statements.

Why is that??? This is where you provide some intelligent and truthful answer.

Boy, this is a reliable news source!!! Lets see, the guy that published the article is Gary Snyder, which is the brother of Brent Snyder, who is the victims Dad. Wow, I bet this isn't one sided by any means and I bet Brent and Gary haven't spoke about this at all.

Wonder when Gary will have the Mayor back on his show again? Or just maybe they had a fallen out. What a joke, didn't realize Gary would try to pull this stunt off with the people of Frankfort. What a joke!!!!

Great. Then your Mcbarnes, Bacon, and the police involve should have nothing to hide and love it when he is proven wrong, right?

Also posts on here and on other social media shouldn't disappear if your boys are on the up and up, right? They'll take the high road, right?

I guess when it goes to court then people will be able to make their own opinion of what took place. Frankly, I haven't seen anything but what has been written by an attorney or a relative of the victim.. Hard for me to cast an opinion when the facts are only being told by one side. Did I miss the other side of the story somewhere? Not trying to be an ass but that is all I have seen.. I have no idea if they will take the high road if wrong, maybe you know them better than I do. I am just simply saying this seems to be one sided at this point.

After the truth comes out the Snyder family will feel nothing but sick regret that they have only made things worse for their daughter.A shame horrible things like this happen, Things like this do not happen to girls making good decisions based on morals. The parents want to bring other people into this that were not part the the crime. Parents, I say where were you when your daughter was making all these really poor decisions. Now your going her make her relive that night for the next year. There is a reason this did not go to court! If the parents go forward with this they may not like what the truth will bring out.

I think the VICTIM put herself in a bad situation, an almost predictable one considering the drugs and drinking. However, it doesnt make her a liar and it doesnt mean she asked for it. No one should ever be violated.

I myself am glad to see someone with enough guts to fight this all the way. Our police department and investigators have been covering stuff up for awhile now. Its one thing to let ur buddy go for speeding but we're talking about rape. It also goes both ways, sometimes these agencies are lying under oath in court and on affadavits to provide evidence against a defendant. I don't underatand how they rest at night.

Sounds like you know the truth. I feel sorry for this girl, sort of. If the city doesn't fight this tooth and claw I am going to be very disappointed in them.

the young woman didn't asked to be drugged or raped--or to be treated like a piece of meat---there have been several rapes reported and the frankfort police ignore them all---you can have the best upbringing--go to church every sunday---and this could still happen to any young girl or woman ---actually I think it will give this young woman peace of mind and alittle closure if she wins this case---she sure didn't get an justice from the law in Frankfort when it happened--

dear come on-- it's all one sided because if you had read the lawsuit-no one will release the public records about the case?---that's why they are called public records----do the Frankfort police and the mayor have something to hide?--there is no other side of the story--the young woman was drugged and raped----end of story--

As an aside, the mayor went to church most Sundays and now he is one big hypocrite and a liar...

Thank you for proving that church people aren't all they profess themselves to be. Of course that's their problem. They use way too many words and absolutely no actions.

Here's some verified stuff for punyjab and the rest of you people from the lawsuit. The comments below the verified information are from the original and intelligent poster.

From the Federal Lawsuit

48. The attending nurse explained to XXXXXX that she found three anal tears and damage to her perineum that is usually only present in forced sex.

49. The nurse took pictures of XXXXXX’s bruised ankle, wrists, and mouth, anal tears, vaginal, and anal tears and bruising.

57. The FRANKFORT MAYOR also assured XXXXXX’s father that the rape kit had already been “taken down and turned in.”

58. Despite these assertions, it took almost five (5) weeks for the rape kit to be taken to the Indiana State Police crime lab, which is not normal protocol for any municipal, county or state law enforcement agency.
__________

Injuries like those that are documented in visual, written and photo, plus 5 weeks to submit the kit...

Yes, she was raped and the police by failing to follow established standards of handling a rape case will cause the city to settle out of court.

__________

Can you twist that punyjab???
