The rape case from the Ooltewah High School boys' basketball team's trip last December has had tsunami-sized ripple effects.

In a lot of ways, it was the emotional lightning rod that triggered the downfall of the school superintendent. It has awoken many in our community who assumed the school system was rolling right along, hitting the occasional speed bump.

Whether they realize it or not, the three alleged victims with enough courage and family support to press charges deserve our admiration for taking the stand against them.
