Two football players chanced on an extremely drunk 19-year old and made her their personal "sex toy" for the night, dragging her to three different parties. Of equal concern are those who thought this was "funny" or "okay." Here is one picture (the victim is fully clothed): http://prinniefied.com/wp/wp-content...1/08_phot0.png
Slate has solid info and links and comments:
As some initial gleeful Twitter responses from students to the alleged rape demonstrate, one reason rape continues is that communities not only don't hold perpetrators responsible, but close ranks to defend or even celebrate them. By stepping in and holding people accountable, Anonymous stands a very good chance of taking action that actually does something to stop rape. But: This type of online vigilante justice is potentially invading the privacy of or defaming innocent Steubenville residents, and even if everything published is true, there are very serious legal limits to the Anonymous strategy. Not all of the leaked allegations are attached to Twitter or YouTube accounts—many of the most serious cover-up claims, which we won't reprint here, are at this point only rumor. The allegations will infuriate you, but they don't rise to the level of real evidence that can be used to truly hold responsible those who participate in sex crimes.
Steubenville, Ohio rape: Anonymous gets involved, and the case gets even more complicated.
What is really disturbing about this case, aside from the fact that not one person tried to help that girl, is that the town is being held hostage by their obsession with football. The sheriff, who reportedly has breakfast with the football coach regularly, had trouble finding witnesses because of their fear of reprisal. The coach, a mediator in the juvenile court, doesn't believe they did anything wrong despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. The entire Jefferson County prosecutor's office had to recuse itself due to conflicts of interest as did the judge. The whole thing is outrageous.
In 2010, an eleven year old girl was gang raped by 20 men. The depths of human depravity knows no end. Justice could be served in this case simply by putting these animals in prison with the general population. Rapists tend to get what they deserve in prison if they are not protected from it.
