  1. The MV Times removes the Comment feature for certain categories of stories for strange reasons.
    If ever there was a reason to remove it, in the alleged victims interest, this would seem to be the example.
    The public interest obligation was served by publishing these facts.
    Now please consider closing this feature until final resolution.

  2. And in the interest of the accused. One of the charges is that he used force. I’ve known Vinnie since he was a toddler and I find it extremely unlikely that he forced anyone.

    • In the interest if everyone who is a 14/15 year old girl: it is extremely unlikely that a 30 year old man who is paying attention to you and buying you alcohol wants anything from you other than sex. Predators come in all shapes and sizes and demeanors.
