The emails may have been from front office staff of Total Nonstop Action -- the spot for WWE castoffs to perform in empty venues throughout North America.

*****************************************************************************************************************
I agree with you that a months time should NOT have elapsed between the witnessing and the reporting of this crime. However, I can say to the best of my knowledge of this school, that had I been the one on this interview and had I reported the crime immediately--the school would have treated me with the exact same disregard and slandering with which they treated Christina. You seem to be focusing on the ways in which Christina mishandled the situation and ignoring the reason for the lawsuit itself, which is the misconduct of the school and the way that they manipulate, suppress and mistreat their students for the sake of personal gain and profit.
*****************************************************************************************************************

The welfare of the 2 girls was my greatest concern. Report the crime immediately. File a lawsuit against ENGS later; and the verdict would have been unanimous in your favor, due in large part to the "Mandatory Reporting Law" that protects professional child-care givers.

Were you a student in good standing, unlike Christina? It seems to me that there would be more "personal gain and profit" if ENGS were to PRAISE one of their students who has acted to protect children. That's what you are TRAINED TO DO! What kind of pressure would it take to prevent YOU from making the report for OVER A MONTH??? During the trial, we were told that only 2 of the 8 students in Session #104 received placements before the lawsuit. If you're one of the 6, I'm sure you weren't happy about that, but Christina was in a desperate position. Do you really think it's fair to compare yourself with Christina?

When I heard his name, I always had to smile...sounded like a noisy dog who got into a lot of mischief...he is so...BARKEVIOUS.

How could he be ANYTHING else but a Cleveland Brown? Now that is gone.

And there's nothing else about the Browns that can possibly make me smile, or laugh...or even chuckle. Or care. This is gonna be another bad year. Maybe even worse than last year.

Probably won't watch. I've got the Tribe and the Cubs...at least until October Then it's Cavs time again. And maybe hockey, too.

See ya, Barkevious, you ex-Dawg, you...nice knowin' ya...

Re: “The Origins and Evolution of the Cleveland Accent (Yes, You Have an Accent, Cleveland)

The dialect comes from the practice of pressing the back of the tongue against the sides of the upper palate. I feel it when I speak! and yes, I do admit to this eeyeahccent. We Clevelander's also say boyk, instead of bike and moyk for Mike. It's the short A that we attach the Y to. We also add it to our long I's, usually with a subtle O sound in words such as Mike, Bike, Tike... sounding more like Moyk, Boyk, Toyk, depending on which side of town you're from... believe it or not the 'Cleveland Accent' has an East and West differenciation!!

Re: “Meet the Pro-Slavery Fairview Park Auxiliary Cop

I'm glad he was fired and I hope he never gets another job again. And for you asshairs that are defending and standing up for this P.O.S and his so called 1st Amendment Rights should all shut the FUQ up. The only thing you are doing is showing how racist and bigoted you are. Racist White people make me sick to my stomach. And don't try and take my words out of context either, you whiny bunch of over privileged and undereducated morons. I have nothing but love for white people, except when it comes to your racist brethren. You will come up with every excuse in the book to defend him for his cowardess ass remarks. And I'm surpised none of you bigots have used the, "Well, you're playing the race card" statement yet. That appears to be your favorite sentence as of late. Seeing as how most of you racist ass, moronic, hate filled whites can't count to 20 without taking your shoes and socks off. And yes, I do hate. I hate whiny ass, racist ass bigots that play the victim when none of you defending this piece of trash has had any real oppression to deal with. And yes this comment is directed at any and everyone defending this prick in this comment section. Maybe you would have more than a quarter of a brain to work with if your grandparents weren't brother and sister. And kiss my culturaly mixed ass. All of you coward ass racist internet trolls! And I can say what I want because according to you idiots my 1st Ammendment Rights allow me to.

Re: “Jury Awards Plaintiffs $392,750 in Sexual Abuse Cover-Up Case Involving Chagrin Falls Nanny School

@Session104Grad ... as I recall, there was one other student who stayed in the dorms after Session #104 was complete (other than Christina). Were you the other student?

Re: “Jury Awards Plaintiffs $392,750 in Sexual Abuse Cover-Up Case Involving Chagrin Falls Nanny School

@Session104Grad
I'll have to continue my "dissection" of your comment tomorrow. But please consider that you present a unique opportunity to discuss this situation with someone who has "first-hand" knowledge/experience. Judge Burt addressed the Jury and told us that we were "sending a message to society". During Jury Selection, I said that I didn't consider myself "qualified" to do that (not in those words). I'm an Army Veteran and I was selected for this Jury ... and I think that it's my responsibility to express my viewpoint.

I wrote what you'll read below hours ago. Indians are playing Rangers, and few people will see this. I just hope that THE RIGHT people will see.

##############################################################################################################
Eight(8) Jurors were sitting in the Jury Box watching a magician perform. All of the Jurors actually BELIEVE in MAGIC. One(1) sees something that reveals to him that THIS IS A TRICK!!! From that moment on, everything else that the magician displays is just a continuation of the "TRICK" to this one Juror ... but the other seven(7) are still seeing MAGIC :(
###############################################################################################################

**************************************************************************************************************************************************************
I am one of the graduates of class #104, and was a classmate of Christina Cruz.You seem extremely invested in this case (to a point that confuses me, honestly) and the way you speak about Christina feels to me almost as though you've developed a personal vendetta against her for reasons I can't possibly imagine. While I understand you were awarded a unique view of the circumstances from your position as a juror, you comment as though you have insight to the experience of the students of not only class #104, but all students of ENGS, as well as the intentions and character of Mrs. Roth and Mr. Gaylord, that I'm not sure you can rightfully claim.
**************************************************************************************************************************************************************

###############################################################################################################
I AM invested in this case. I lost more than 4 weeks of income. I would like to see "justice" for my "investment". I don't know Mrs. Roth or Mr. Gaylord or any previous students. While responding to your comment, I'll frequently refer to these two(2) phrases:

"HOW HORRIBLE DO YOU THINK IT WAS???"

"HOW STUPID DO I HAVE TO BE???"
###############################################################################################################

***************************************************************************************************************************************************************I am offering you this perspective because I would like for you to understand the mentality behind the actions of both Christina and the upper management of ENGS. In my opinion, Christina should not have been accepted to session #104 (and perhaps not at all). The decision was rushed because we were a small class and the school wanted a higher income potential from our class. Period. While I have absolutely no personal conflict with Christina (I enjoyed her company and found her to be capable of extremely sweet and kind conversations and opinions), she did, on numerous occasions, conduct herself in ways that the paperwork of the school clearly stated warranted expulsion. And yet, time and time again, the school broke their own policy to keep her as a student--NOT out of the goodness of their hearts, but because they wanted to rush her through the program, place her, get the fee and then feed her to the wolves. If they had any kind of moral code that wasn't about income, they would never have accepted her to begin with, or they would have expelled her at the first sign of potential mishap, returned her tuition deposit and been done with it. But they wanted more money, so they ignored their own "policies" repeatedly.
**************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Why do you say that the decision was "rushed" to accept Christina to Session #104? Were you, and/or anyone else in the Dorm when Christina arrived? Did she mention the "Special Loan" that Barbara Francis allegedly offered to her ... providing that she didn't have to make payments on the "Retail Installment Agreement" until she actually received a placement? Were you offered the same; and if not ... how did you feel about Christina receiving special treatment? When you say that ENGS "wanted more money", do you have any proof of that or is it just your opinion? How many times are you aware of that Christina had tried to attend Sessions at ENGS in the past?

"HOW STUPID DO I HAVE TO BE???" Christina was at home taking care of business when Barbara Francis called and offered this "Special Loan" ... you don't have to pay until we get you a job :) However ... bring the $2,000 down-payment. So, Christina drops everything and leaves home from the Albany, NY area with her $2,000 down-payment to Chagrin Falls for 3 months which will from now on be referred to as Session #104.

REALLY??? I've explained why I believed that this was a lie by Christina below. However .... you went TOO FAR with "feed her to the wolves". Why would you say THAT??? Is it the same "extreme bias" that plagued the rest of the Jury? Wouldn't they make the same income if they fed her to the "lambs" ... as opposed to "wolves"? You say that "If they had any kind of moral code that wasn't about income, they would never have accepted her to begin with, or they would have expelled her at the first sign of potential mishap". Sorry, but it doesn't work that way. Are you actually blaming ENGS for sending Christina on ANY INTERVIEW AT ALL??? Me too. :(
