Story out of Columbus, Ohio

I found this off of the forums at

There was a story about a 14 year-old girl attacked by some boys in a Columbus public school. He was punched in the face and then forced to perform oral sex on the boys attacking her. One of the boys observing her was taping this incident with a camcorder. There were other kids who came to observe ultimately one did report this incident to the school's authorites who in turn notified her father. They insisted he NOT call the police but he ignored this advice and this story broke.

Glenn Beck, a nationally syndicated radio talk show host, got hold of this storty and attempted to interview the Mayor of Columbus Mike Coleman. He at first mocked the mayor with a mock interview but ultimately they got the real thing on the air. This wasn't a rousing success of an interview and it's safe to say Mayor Coleman wasn't really willing to take a stand on this issue.

He has an interest in running for governor of Ohio. Perhaps I should continue to follow him and see if this issue causes him any problems.

The blog post that has links to Glenn Beck's clips.
