    Texas Town, Courts Fail Cheerleader

    Texas Town, Courts Fail Cheerleader --FanHouse

    She is identified by her real name now, Hillaire. But after almost 21 months she still can't bring herself to say somebody else's.

    Hillaire was a cheerleader, yelling for her high school basketball team in a Texas town. A player went to shoot a free throw. Hillaire knelt in silence.

    The player had been arrested for allegedly raping her four months earlier. Temporarily cleared of the charge, Rakheem Bolton was back on campus. Because of that, school officials told Hillaire to cheer for him.

    "I was not going to do it," she said.

    The girl's father has amazing self-control, it sounds like. I'd have been out for literal blood if that were my little girl.

    from the OP...
    In November 2009 a second grand jury reinstated the charges against Bolton and Rountree. A plea agreement reduced the charge to Class A misdemeanor assault. The case against Rountree is still pending, but Bolton pleaded guilty in September.

    The end result: school officials may not have been telling Hillaire to cheer for her rapist. She was being told to cheer for her self-admitted assaulter.

    Maybe the broken bathroom window or death threats should have given them a clue.

    "All I wanted was for him to come forward and say, 'Yeah, it happened,' " Hillaire said.

    Bolton got a one-year suspended jail sentence, two years' probation, a $2,500 fine, 150 hours community service and is required to attend anger-management classes.

    But at least he has no hard feelings.

    "I do feel like it was very fair," Bolton said.
    HE doesn't think it was fair? What exactly wasn't fair? That he didn't get his 'happy ending' because the little white byotch screamed and he got interrupted?

    VERY good thin it wasn't MY daughter. I'd be in jail.

    Face Palms! Why do we have these stupid asses take care of our children future when they can't even see that this football player was in the wrong, and not the victim? I can't believe, I'm agreeing with Apsdt on this because I too would have shot the little ****er.



    Also it looks like Silsbee is a small town that primarily African American, Hispanic, and Native American, so I don't see why the NCCAP should bother with this case. My father been their because he had to get a 1949 MACK fire truck he bought their, and he said it was a pretty small town. But this type of behavior is not incline to just small towns. Where the football team raped a girl who was mentally handicapped, and no one believed her and the only who stood up for her were the outcast of the small town.

    I dont know either. Its like the other day when a bunch of people here were defending a Priest who raped a little boy and 20 years later the boy, now a man, beat the **** out of him.

    I say, you mess with me or my family, sooner or later you are going to pay the piper. I dont care if it takes 20 years, I will hunt you down and deal with you how I deem is proper. If I land in jail, so be it. But I will promise this, after I get done with the person it will be the last time they rape, rob or murder .

    From what I recall, people were not defending the priest as a rapist. People were opposing vigilantism and saying that the man who beat him, legally, assaulted him. It wasn't about what was right or wrong, morally. It was about what was right or wrong, legally.

    Anyone that doesnt morally think a rapist should get the ass handed to them weather it be 1 day or 20 years later has a screw loose. Right or wrong? What was right about a man raping a little boy? And what is wrong with the little boy, once grown, taking matters into his own hands seeing the asshole never did any time for it? I would understand if the guy did 20 years and has he was walking out of prison and the guy attacked him. But this asshole never had to face justice for his actions. As usual, the church offers the embarrassed parents a large sum of money tp keep their mouths shut.

    There is a difference between what is morally wrong and what is legally wrong. You do not seem to be diserning the difference... in either thread. Morally, most would want to see a rapist get pounded by someone. Legally, the person who pounds the rapist is guilty of assault. Do you see the difference between the morals of the situtaion and the legality of the situation?
