terry rodino Commissioner shouldn’t be tried in the press

Elkhart County Commissioner Terry Rodino is being tried in the press. Allegations are reported but they are not enough. What is the real hard evidence of wrongdoing? Allegations minus evidence ought to indicate innocence. Allegations alone are insufficient.

Further, it seems wrong to publish details of alleged sexual misconduct without any substantive evidence supporting it. Such publicity can destroy lives. If he is innocent, his life and name are forever besmirched. If he is guilty, let a court come to that decision.

I do not know if he is guilty or innocent. But don’t try Rodino in the press. To do so is shameful, not to Rodino but to the newspaper doing so.
