FREE MICHAEL CARDAMONE AND PROTECT OTHERS FROM THIS TYPE OF INJUSTICE

We, the undersigned, believe that something went terribly wrong in the case of Michael Cardamone.

A young coach was convicted after nearly one hundred witnesses testified on his behalf that they never saw anything inappropriate occur, as stated by his accusers. All testified that this alleged touching occurred in an open area, in full view of: his wife, other coaches, these very girls own teammates, recreational gymnasts, cheerleaders, and many parents. The parents further testified that they observed all activity at the facility whenever they wanted to. Even the accusers testified that they did not see anything inappropriate happen to the very girls in their group that said it did happen. So, we ask how could this have occurred hundreds and hundreds of times, yet no one saw it occur even once?
No corroborating evidence something very tragic and suspect has occurred.

Some of us are teachers, counselors, tutors, while others are swim, soccer, skating, dance, and gymnastics coaches - - still others of us are physical therapists, massage therapists, chiropractors - - music/piano teachers who teach from our home - - religious ed teachers - - the list goes on - - and all of us watched this case and witnessed a young man imprisoned unjustly. Do we all need to change our professions, since we live in a society where even a hug from a preschool teacher can now potentially end their career? Many of us are actually alone with our students yet this coach was surrounded by many others.

The split verdict, believing half of the accusers and not the other half, even though their stories were basically the same, raises many troubling questions.

Could this happen to us, and who would protect us from false accusations? Why would a States Attorney take snippets out of context in order to achieve a conviction rather than obtain the truth? Why did he recently hang the phone up so quickly when being questioned by supporters of Michael on a live radio talk show? Why is the childrens center, merely a wing of the States Attorneys office, unjustly seeking convictions? Why hide from the public that an investigator and case worker lied and conveniently threw away their notes?

There are true victims of real crime, and we are in no means trying to minimize their situations. However, this is not the case at hand. You can right this wrong now - - one innocent person convicted is one too many!
Bring Michael Cardamone home to his wife and his family.

We as registered voters question the elected officials that tried this case and are appalled at the outcome. Your decision now for allowing a new trial, or at the very most a probationary sentencing, is expected to turn this injustice around. Anything short of this then we must ask ourselves if those involved are the right ones to hold any political office in the future, especially considering that our futures are also in their hands.

We are the supporters of Michael Cardamone who will continue to grow and fight until he is exonerated!
