How do you prove yourself innocent when you are not guilty?

Cheswick Councilman Jonathan Skedel's name has been trashed because he was judged in advance. This is because some people are not willing to make changes in a small town that is financially struggling.

Skedel is accused of punching Cheswick Volunteer Fire Co. President Joseph Ferrero. Everyone believed Ferrero.

Skedel finally got the courts to release surveillance tape of the incident. I have seen the tape and there is no doubt that this man didn't start this fight.

But who in this town wants to see the tape? No one. Why not? Skedel has contacted firefighters, but no one wants to see the tape. How do you prove yourself innocent if you can't get anyone to watch the tape?

As a community, we should want to know the truth. Let's give Jon Skedel a chance to show the community the tape and prove his innocence.
