    That's an assumption, no less than many of the other assumptions going on this thread. That also doesn't speak to anything like not doing anything about providing alcohol to minors, etc., if that's even in play.

    Ahh, okay. For some reason I had it in my mind this was the Steubenville, Ohio case we were talking about. Thanks.

    We agree on this.

    The boys haven't been charged with anything, correct? Nor have any townspeople who threatened her, correct?

    That's doing nothing.

    or here: Daisy Coleman, Missouri Teen, Claims She's Shunned By Community After Rape Allegations

    or here: Maryville rape case: The horrifying details of what happened to Daisy Coleman feel all too familiar.


    Words just can't describe....

    What's with this mentality of protecting athletes at all costs?

    Or protecting boys?????

    Why are girls seen as expendable?
    I do not think it has anything to do with seeing girls as expendable. It could be that many people see false accusations to be inexcusable. The prosecuting attorney dropped the charges. In many people's eyes dropped charges and no conviction implies that the accusations were false. Some peoples lives are ruined because of a crime they didn't do. I know that most people would be severely pissed if someone tried to ruin their lives or the lives of their loved ones with false accusations. People in small towns tend to be close. The girls family is new to the town and not as close as the other people in the town. So that probably explains why the town turned on girl.Most likely in their eyes she turned on the town with an allegedly false accusation so they returned the favor and turned on her.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    So far as I can tell, no, but that's not the issue here. The issue is all the other stuff you said no one's doing anything about.

    That's an assumption. The articles don't say either way. They do say the boy isn't currently being charged. They don't say anything about this.

    Well, according to all the sources I can find, the only people doing anything about anything are Anonymous. Sad state of affairs.

    Unless you have something saying affirmatively that no one's doing anything about these things, you're making an assumption. Not everything makes it to print.

    No article ever written lists all the people who *aren't* doing anything. It's amazing the lengths people go to in order to justify this kind of thing.

    You're being wildly emotional. I'm not "justifying" anything. I'm being rational. You're accusing a whole town of "doing nothing" when you don't have any evidence to back up that claim. It's an assumption of yours, nothing more.

    If you can find things like "was not charged"; "declined to prosecute," etc., then you'd have something. But as far as I can tell, no such things are out there.

    Apparently the prosecution didn't think it was enough evidence, and the victim refused to cooperate, so there's really not much else than can happen.
