Getting charged with a DWI doesn't make somebody a bad person, or even unfit for any number of various jobs. It means -- if the person is even guilty -- that the person made a mistake. People do, you know, make mistakes.

Doesn't explain how you would feel . Players have to sign a code of conduct , why not a coach. Certain people should be held to a higher level considering the position they hold .you don't agree with this . No it doesn't make him a bad person , just a bad coach and teacher .

I have all the respect in the world for Mr.Fusco. I would not even give it a second thought to let my kids ride with him to any school event.
It only shows he screwed up. Who hasn't done something there not proud of at one time or anouther? There is no doubt in my mind that Mr. Fusco and the kids around him will all learn from his mistake. If just one kid does not get behind the wheel after drinking knowing what happen to there Coach / Teacher, maybe a few lives will be saved.

You are all right in your own ways. One mistake doesn't make a person bad, but in certain positions there is supposed to be a level of respect and dignity to be held. A grown man knows better than to drive after drinking.
On another note, I think you may have misspelled the name Malik Ayala, there is no i at the end of it. And this story saddens those that try every day to make a poitive impact in the lives of our communities youth. There are agencies that do this, but in the end, there are far too many youth that slip through the cracks and continue a life of crime and negative behavior. When I stop seeing familiar names like I have recently, then I can have a stronger faith that our system is truely protecting our children.

No spelling police on The Batavian, please.

And it should be Malik I. -- in double checking the press release ... the letters ere rather close together.

As a former BHS student, I know (Mr) Adam Fusco. He is always a teacher that would go out of his way for any student and help them out, whether he had them as a student or not or even if he didn't know them. Whether he is guilty or not, his actions should not classify him as a bad person, as he is someone that is the oposite and evidently made a mistake. No a mistake doesn't make it right but if this is something he is guilty of, I am sure that he will do whatever he has to in order to make it right in whatever ways he has to.

Not that I know this Mr. Fusco personally, but if he's as good of a coach and person as people say he is, I doubt he realized or was aware he was over the .08 limit.

It's pretty easy for a grown man to be over the limit and not even realize or feel it. Portraying him as a bad person because of a judgement error is a bit of a low move.

As a BHS graduate and formal student of Mr. Fusco, I will not tolerate listening to people on The Batavian, in the salon where I work at or during social advents- try and label Mr. Fusco for a minuet mistake he made! He's a great teacher and supportive to EVERY student, just like most of the BHS Facility! People make mistakes! It's human! Get over yourself! Look at Martha Stewart-Jail! Look at formal President Bill Clinton-Oral sex! Their good people who try to do good things! Again I'm going to write this; Mr. Adam Fusco is a great teacher!
