And I hope it goes through , Thats the only way that Justice will be searved and the family can begin to heal. its been way to long
And I dont see why the state Highway Patroll should be called in as well , If nothin else to over see this case and to see that everything is done sccording to the Revised Code. As a matter of fact all these Judges really should be taken off this case as well as Dean Henry

Your post is a little hard to read. How ever the Highway Patrol has no jurisdiction what so ever in a case like this, let alone no expertise.

Think you mean BCII

Thanks for keeping us updated on this SR. It has been what, 4 - 5 hours since the last article?

WiseManOnceSaid

Then don't comment. You've made it clear you know or are defending one of the witnesses or officials. Who? What can make you so clearly object to any complaints over this matter?

Matt Westerhold

Thanks for reading mrrite, and keeping yourself updated.

This was the first report that an affidavit had been filed with the Ohio Supreme Court. It seems relevant to developing details of this story, and the Register deemed it worthy of reporting.

Generally, newspapers attempt to report new information when it becomes available. I'm not sure there is a logical alternative to that but perhaps you have a better idea how that should be done.

Mr. Westerhold, The videos you are showing of the Anonymous group is very poor taste. You should not show a video that promotes violence to elected officials. It is disrespectful to Jake and his family along with the counties elected officials and law enforcement. Violence never makes anything better.

WiseManOnceSaid

How does the video promote violence? Specifically, if you will. You make claims with nothing to really back it up.

Detrain

They are not promoting violence all they are saying the thruth will be found and come out and you will get what's coming your way. You keep reading more into what is said about this case. Just read your messenger if you do not like what the register has to say. You should be saying positive things for the family

Matt Westerhold

Thanks voice of fremont for sharing your thoughts. 

Your view that this might be in poor taste certainly is worthy of consideration, and was considered before the 'Anon' video was posted. 

Given that this group has brought a great deal of attention to this important story — and that the video and followup releases have clearly stated it is not a call for violence — it would seem clear the video has news value that should not be kept hidden from the public for that reason.

And if it were a call for violence it's likely the 'Anon' video would still have news value that should not be hidden from the public or withheld from reporting. 

That's especially true given this already has been a matter of public concern and would likely be a greater matter of concern if there were a threat of violence against public officials.

Maybe you're a useless elected official whose a little scared of them right now...

OMGreally

mrite and voice of fremont are both ppl that somehow have something to lose with all this attention. watch their posts and watch how much they want all the coverage to stop...pretty easy to figure out, just like someone above mentioned...

luvblues2

I have a better idea on how to deliver it to mrite so he doesn't have to click his mouse and buttons to get here matt. Let's just get him one of those air/vacuum things the banks use and run it straight from the SR to up his butt. HE would no longer need to strain himself to use a mouse and push buttons to get here and be forced to read this. Just sayin'.

Kelly

Every other story is about this case. Isn't there anything else going on you can write about?

mrite

Like, like, like, like etc etc etc

Hello Matt . I just would like to know why its taken the family this long to take the action stated above ? All I can say is good for them and One would think that the sate bar in ohio should also get a copy of this as well .

Detrain

Thanks sr for keeping us up to date. I hope it goes through for the familys sake.

No one should work this hard for justice especially when it has been so badly screwed up. Law enforcement shouldn't be this obviously incompetent. What are they hiding? When this is finally said and done, some jobs should be at stake over the incompetence of it all. No doubt there is yet to come a big lawsuit against the county. I hope the family can get some closure and justice.

Brick Hamland

Is there not enough evidence to charge those in the room with murder? If so, just charge them and see how fast they sell out who the shooter was

nobodyfromnowhere

You are saying that if there is not enough evidence to charge the witnesses with murder, then charge them anyways in hopes of developing evidence?

nobodyfromnowhere

Is anybody else having a problem with the PDF viewer?

Not keeping this in the forefront is just what some are hoping for.
The press and their relentless quest for justice shall prevail.
JUSTICE 4 JAKE

VOICE OF FREMONT:

AS IF ELECTED OFFICIALS AND LAW ENFORCEMENT DESERVE TO BE ON SOME SORT PEDESTAL....

Señor Clown

Yes, and a plaque at the base of the pedestal should read "Public Accountability"

jmac08

voice of fremont....
i understand your from sandusky county.... and they way you talk negitave ud think your in with the officials if i was living in sandusky county id be scared to contact any enforcement bc you can obviously see they are not trust worthy and crooked... ive watched the anonymous video MULTIPLE times and the only reason little dean henry is scared or any officials being threatened OBVIOUSLY means they are guilty bc they said they would serve justice? how is that threatening?????? im more threatened by sandusky county not doin their job in the first place if you have/had w.e a child put your self in this families shoes then judge and talk about them until then everyone would prefer if youd just shut up and not comment bc your stupidity makes me want to vomit

sandtown born a...

Ever notice how the few who always complain about this story and its pieces are always first to comment. DONT READ IT they must be in bed with the corruption to defend them

WiseManOnceSaid

Also notice how they seem be new members and primarily concerned with this case, yet claim to have no affiliation or be defending anyone..

John Harville

Jake isn't there.
Sandusky County Judges are notorious for private issues, misconstruing information, not reading motions they approve, letting personal issues influence their decisions, overlooking the obvious...

voice of fremont

jmac08.

In looking back at my previous post, I'm questioning why you think I'm stupid or ignorant. "Your stupidity makes me want to vomit" What was said that makes you want to vomit? I was just stating my opinion. I have stated that I hope the family finds what they are looking for in several post and pray for them almost daily. I'm pretty sure the video states " there will be consequence for your actions. Fear us, Fear God, Fear the truth." How is that not a threat? If some one told you to fear them and to fear god wouldn't that make you feel threatened? I know I would. But I understand that your intelligence level doesn't let you comprehend that someone might have a opinion that is opposite of yours. I'm sorry that I am smart enough to see both sides of the situation. I feel that even Mr. Westerhold understood where I was coming from due to his response to my post. But once again he is educated and seems to have common sense even though I disagree with a lot of what he prints in his paper. I guess common sense is a lost characteristic in today's society. To those of you that stated "why don't you just read the News Messenger". I am a proud subscriber to the News Messenger and their paper is delivered to my door daily. But if you haven't noticed the Sandusky Register is a so called "regional newspaper" therefor they are also covering some stories in Fremont. I choose to read both papers so that I am educated on whats going on in my hometown. If you would like examples of Fremont based stories in the Register I would be happy to provide examples..
