The ODNR rangers hand out more punishment and fines for taking a leak, amounting to a few ounces, in the bushes of Mosquito Lake State Park than what this greedy putz will get for openly dumping tens of thousands of gallons in our waterways.

Any company involved in the drilling of oil and hauling of brine, should be thoroughly investigated before any permits are issued. They should also have a person appointed by the county or state to be on site everyday, which they pay for. All vehicles hauling brine or any type of waste should have tracking devices installed on them. The ways to fix this from happening again are quite simple, just need to be put in place. Lets see if our elected leaders do this.

CitizenZero, I think it would hurt if he has hit anywhere hard enough or with a large enough object.

Lupo hates Ohio, hates rivers, intimidates subordinates... Sounds like a Hate crime to me, well he didn't cut anybody's beard off so Nevermind. Ridiculous.

I hope he gets the max. This has to be a stern warning to all doing this type of business . I feel there is enough public sentiment that the courts will hammer him good.

Show of nothing more but to appease the people. Soon this entire incident will under the radar and Luppy will get a badboy reprimand and sent on his way to drill, dump and amass his wealth. They will probably even give him an instruction book on more secretive ways to dump his waist.

Nota bene: Tribtoday's comment system really does not support special characters like music notes- so that little red warning ain't lying! Enjoy the question mark flecked song anyway.

? Lupo the Hippo ? ? He likes to dump brine ? ? Lupo the Hippo ? ? He's more so a swine ? ? If you fall into the river ? ? And get oil in your liver ? ? It's because of Ben Lupo ? ? And his crimes! ?

**** Feel free to change the song as you like. This area has not taken good care of its water resources for a long time. What Lupo did is a whole new kind of disgusting, however.

I say make him drink brine and swim in the Mahoning River daily until it's cleaned up. Of course, jail time will work too- lots more than 3 years, though.

Put him in jail and throw away the key. Fine him millions so he"ll loose his business and pay for all the clean-up.

the truth is that our legal framework is not ready for this activity- so it is vital that the authorities come down very hard on everyone who breaks what laws we have.

was never a fan of this Fracking idea. Has there been any studies done on ground stabilization after tracking or are we going to start seeing sink holes in Ohio the size of houses? The love of money IS the root of all evil.

Nothing but a publicity stunt for a bunch of politicos and bureaucrats to pretend they actually did something. The environmental terrorist is still not in jail, and likely never will be; the river is still polluted and likely always will be; the fracking/injecting/drilling and dumping go on nonstop; it's business as usual. Why even have a press conference? why not just do your publicly funded jobs instead of having a mutual admiration conclave before lunch?

Now we are learning he dumped at leasts 20 times or more per his scared employee, not the 5 or 6 he admitted to doing. The laws on fracking fluid dumping such as what Lupo did are too weak FamilyGuy and definitely need strengthened.

Bond was too low.

Hope fines and jail time are at the max end of the allowable scale. For EACH of the separate offenses.

We do not need a lot of new laws, we just need to vigorously enforce the laws already on the books.

It was good to see him in handcuffs yesterday. The Feds & Ohio need to strengthen these fracking pollution laws and require way more jail time and much larger fines.

Three years is an outrage! He deserves much more! He is nothing short of a terrorist and should be dealt with accordingly!A 250,000 dollar fine is a joke, a slap on his wrist, chump change!
