Citadel liability

If The Citadel is found guilty of any culpability in the Louis ReVille debacle, whatever awards are made in lawsuits should come directly from the school's operating budget. The liability to which it has exposed itself, and therefore to taxpayers is almost as appalling as its conduct in this horrible ordeal.

Once again we need strong leadership for The Citadel. The proven leader we need is Lt. Gen. John Rosa.  I have known Gen. Rosa since 1979, when we served our country as A-10 pilots in the U.S. Air Force. He was then, and is now, one of the most honorable men I know. He epitomizes the virtues we seek to instill in the men and women of our school and has been a devoted servant of our country, our state, our alumni and our Corps.

More to story (letter to the editor)

To those who sit high on the Pedestal of Moral Judgment in their castigation of The Citadel because of its error in not reporting to police the case of Louis ReVille and Citadel campers I offer this:  Yes, The Citadel made a mistake which likely led to more serious molestation incidents at other institutions. This fact is most disturbing to Lt. Gen. John Rosa and The Citadel family.

Citadel's challenge (letter to the editor)

didn't attend The Citadel, but I'm well aware of how important that institution is to its students, alumni, and our community at large. Like everyone else, I'm saddened and distressed by The Citadel's alleged actions, or lack thereof, in the Louis ReVille case. However, I don't believe Lt. Gen. John Rosa's resignation or firing would necessarily be a good idea.

As graduates of The Citadel, we are appalled by the abhorrent actions of alumnus Louis "Skip" ReVille. His predatory practices upon defenseless young boys are unconscionable and like all members of the community our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.  The Citadel and in particular, its president, Lt. Gen. John W. Rosa, are being faulted for a decision not to report an incident that allegedly occurred in 2002 between Louis ReVille and a young boy attending The Citadel Summer Camp.

HICKS COLUMN: Let Rosa clean up the mess

It's no surprise that some Citadel alumni have called for Lt. Gen. John Rosa to resign.  After all, it is a very military concept: the commanding officer is ultimately responsible for the action of his troops.  They want someone to pay for The Citadel's failure to report a sexual predator to police. This goes against everything the college drills into their heads for four years: Honor. Duty. Respect.

The Citadel Honor Code is simple: "A Cadet does not lie, cheat, or steal, nor tolerate those who do."

John Rosa said Monday. "We are sorry we didn't pursue it more."
