    T- what is your problem? you seem so angry, why take it out on other people. no one on this comment section has done anything to you. or has someone here offended you? if so please speak up and say what you really mean! cause this "buy you a ticket" thing is really funny! sounds like you have a lot sky miles and feel badly that you havent used them. BY ALL MEANS FEEL FREE TO USE THEM YOURSELF, YOU EARNED THEM, THEY ARE YOURS. BUT IF YOU REALLY STATE THE TRUTH ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE REALLY ANGRY ABOUT YOU FEEL A LOT BETTER. i DONT WANT TO LEAVE THE US, I LOVE IT HERE. AND I DONT FLY, NEVER HAVE AND NEVER WILL, SO I DECLINE YOUR FREE OFFER FOR YOUR SKY MILES. MAYBE THE PRINCIPAL OR THE GIRL WOULD LIKE TO HAVE THEM. IT IS A SHAME THAT PEOPLE LIKE YOU CANT GET UP HERE AND COMMENT ON THE NEWS REPORT WITHOUT BASHING OTHERS. WAKE -UP CALL- THIS AINT ABOUT YOU OR YOUR SKY MILES THAT NO ONE WANTS, IT IS ABOUT A CRIME THAT MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE TAKEN PLACE IN YET ANOTHER ONE OF OUR SCHOOLS.

    Have no illusions here, I will gladly buy her a ticket. Heck, if u would like one, I have plenty of sky miles. IF this guy is guilty, he will pay severely. In his case, they may be two sides to this story. Who knows? If he is guilty, then he should be put away for life. My point, if you do not want to be here, PLEASE LEAVE. I will donate all my sky miles, and believe me I have plenty. However, it is a ONE WAY TICKET!!

    looks like all of you missed the whole purpose of having this comment section in the first place and decided to bash "US Citizen for now" . I guess that makes you all feel better and takes your mind off of the fact that an adult may have crossed over the line not only in committing adultery but with a student at a christian school in which he was the principal, a leader, someone in position to set an example for our youth. We are all human and fall into temptation and sin. and we all pay the price for it whether it be here on earth or later in heaven.This man is no different, except that he is a christian. We have no right to judge, but pray that if it is true that justice will be done. And I don't think US citizen for now needs anyone's permission to leave the states. and why would you get up here and lie???? you aren't gonna spend one single dime to buy her/ him a ticket to go no where! you are just running your mouth. and that's not what this comment section was intended for.

    I agree with T and I'm sure some of will be glad to take up a collection to buy you a ticket.

    Once again, innocent or guilty, who knows.I am not passing judgement on him. The court system will do that. I am simply going by your "US Citizen for now" name. With that name, it appears you want to leave this country. Once again,feel free to leave!!!!!

    To Larry BH, BH stand for Bonehead. I didn't say this man wasn't going to face the consequences for what he has done. You're mixed up and can't seem to grasp the fact that I was promoting forgiveness here. You know as well as T Bonehead, that wants to leave this great nation for reasons I don't know, many lost viewers that see a former "Christian" principal in this kind of dilemma are waiting to ridicule and persecute especially when he may be Christian. Because the world hates Christians. Jesus told us they would as well as people like you worldly guys. 16There are six things which the LORD hates, Yes, seven which are an abomination to Him: 17 Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, And hands that shed innocent blood, 18 heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that run rapidly to evil, 19 false witness who utters lies, And one who spreads strife among brothers. Guys, from a categorizing stand point, I see you fall into at least one or two of these scriptures such as verses. 17 & 19. SSHHH. HUSH.

    To US Citizen for now.. Innocent or guilty, who knows? If you want to leave this great nation, by all means get a passport. I promise you will not be missed.

    US Citizen, I don't know why folks keep trying to misquote the bible to explain a news article that has nothing to do with the bible. God's law allowed for stoning to death those who raped or murdered as well as other heinous crimes. Also if you would care to investigate the verses that you quoted you will find that many translations do not include John 7:53 through 8:11 because they recognize them as spurious. Even manuscript BSy omits these verses. The death penalty should be reinstated and people held accountable for their crimes and we would find life easier for the good citizens. If this gentleman did commit this crime he should suffer the consequences. The rest of us need to make sure our comments are on target.
