Steubenville High School Rape Cover Up


Consider This A Call to Action:

It’s no secret the lengths that some morally decrepit characters in our society will go to just to downplay rape and ensure that rape victims are blamed for what happens to them and that rape is even joked about. It’s also no secret the way high school athletes are idolized and constantly being helped out and given easier roads to travel than other students. But usually, the easier roads consist of teachers giving them grades they don’t deserve, free tutoring, things like that. Now, when these two terrible traits of our society combine so intensely that it results in members of the Steubenville High School Football team to drug and kidnap a 16-year-old girl, take her unconscious body to several different parties to be raped by numerous boys, all while taking photos of their actions, and the school, police department and townspeople all work together to cover it up because this team is such a major source of revenue for them, not only has an injustice occurred, but we’re flying dangerously close to rock bottom. In addition to outright refusal to prosecute these boys and all the people who are assisting in denying this young girl freedom, the boys are proudly being called “The Rape Crew” and members of the team, like Cody Saltsman, have said “I Have No Sympathy for Whores”. Do we see what the non-stop victim blaming in rape cases and the worship of football players in the schools have led to?

The Steubenville Files

Posted on January 1, 2013

On August 11, 2012 two members of the Big Red High School football team in Steubenville, Ohio – USA were arrested and charged with the rape and kidnapping of an out of town 16-year-old girl. At the time of this gang rape, the girl was intoxicated and unconscious. The victim had been intentionally drugged with a “date rape” intoxicant. She was photographed in this condition, and there is evidence that she was hauled in a comatose state to multiple parties – and almost certainly raped by more members of the local high school football team than just the two players who currently stand charged. There is even evidence that she was urinated upon during this hideous assault.

Despite all this, it looked as though a town rife with corruption, cronyism, illegal gambling  and fixated upon their star high school football team (a major economic revenue engine) were prepared to orchestrate a major cover-up in order to sweep the entire affair under the rug. As this disclosure will document, this cover-up was perpetrated by people in the high school administration, local government and law enforcement.

On December 23, 2012 a cell within Anonymous called “Knight Sec” took up the cause of giving a voice to the victim of this horrible crime, and began unraveling this conspiracy of silence designed to protect a group of these high school football players who had become well known to their fellow students as “The Rape Crew”. Fueled by intelligence they had received from many students at Big Red High School, they launched Operation RollRedRoll by releasing this video. Take careful note of the various screen capture images of pictures taken by these monsters of this poor defenseless girl, and note their many comments made in tweets and Facebook posts regarding their crime (now since deleted).

– James “Jim” Parks –

james

Mr. Parks is an avid fan of the Big Red High School football team, and is the webmaster and owner of a private fan site for the team. Knight Sec zeroed in on James Parks when intelligence from students in the high school revealed that he had an exceptionally close relationship with many of the players on the football team, including those members of “The Rape Crew”. Anonymous quickly took control of his web servers, and proceeded to deface the front page of his website. Knight Sec then when a step further, and gained control over Mr. Parks private E-Mail account, and downloaded much of it’s contents. Among the many interesting things discovered in this trove were several pornographic images of extremely young women, quite possibly underage. One particularly difficult to explain image lifted from James Parks E-Mail is this picture, which appears to show a scantily clad under-age student. It would seem to have been surreptitiously shot in the girls bathroom at the high school.

schoolbathroomsproof

Tips received from anonymous high school students in Steubenville have indicated it is possible James Parks was receiving images from “The Rape Crew” of their various “conquests”. At least one of the images discovered in James Parks E-Mail bore a striking resemblance to another rape victim Savannah  Dietrich whose attack occurred in Louisville, Kentucky under similar circumstances as Steubenville. We now release the entire E-Mail cache that was liberated by Anonymous and offer it for download and analysis:

– Sheriff Fred Abdalla –

sheriffabdalla

Sheriff Fred Abdalla has been the Sheriff of Jefferson County in Ohio USA for 28 years and has stood for election unopposed (with only one rare exception) for his entire career.  In this video interview taken at the recent Anonymous organized protest that took place on December 29, 2012 you can clearly hear Sheriff Abdalla admit that he is aware from evidence gathered that numerous individuals witnessed the attack on the victim and yet he oddly states that simply being there and being aware of the attack is not a crime. This is of course completely incorrect, as witnessing a crime and failing to report it is in itself a crime – and under certain circumstances can even be equated to the charge of conspiracy or being an accessory.  Certainly having been a law enforcement officer for nearly three decades, the Sheriff knows this fact. Sheriff Abdalla also states in this interview that he has nothing to do with the investigation, yet states that he assisted the local police department in hunting down people who attended these parties at which the girl was attacked and confiscating their cell phones and other electronics.  And finally he states,  again incorrectly – that he CAN’T investigate the gang rape attack or whether or not this has happened to other victims because it is not his jurisdiction.  As almost everyone knows, the Sheriff is the highest law enforcement officer in a county and has jurisdiction over ANYTHING in that county. Under constitutional law, his authority even trumps that of the federal law enforcement agencies in his own county. Watch the video, and make note of the points above – this man is lying:

LocalLeaks has confirmed that Sheriff Abdalla and Head Football Coach Reno A. Saccoccia have breakfast a couple of times a week together at the Spot Bar in Steubenville. Recall that per Sheriff Abdalla’s own admission in the video interview above, it was he who was tasked with retrieving the cell phones and other electronic gear from the football players and other students involved in the gang rape of the young girl. In the process of this operation to retrieve the cell phones, several KEY pieces of video and photographic evidence were “inadvertently” deleted by the Sheriff and his deputies. And finally, Sheriff Abdalla runs the largest illegal gambling operation in Jefferson County – employing bookies who work out of the Spot Bar in Steubenville. Sheriff Abdulla’s brother is the largest importer of cocaine in Jefferson County.

– Prosecuting Attorney Jane Hanlin –

janehanlin

The Honorable Jane Hanlin is a Prosecuting Attorney for Jefferson County and the mother of Big Red football player Charlie Keenan, who is suspected of being a member of “The Rape Crew”. Jane Hanlin represented Edward “Eddie” Lulla in his divorce this summer (spending a great deal of time with him). Mr. Lulla is an agent for the BCI who was sent by the State of Ohio to lend oversight to the rape investigation in Steubenville. Not surprisingly, the State of Ohio found everything to be going smoothly. In addition, “Eddie” Lulla’s son was recently chosen to join Steubenville Police Department out of a pool of three candidates. When ranked, his son was not the first candidate. It is crystal clear why Mr. Lulla was unable to find anything wrong with the current investigation (which is being conducted by SPD) into this horrible crime.

It appears that Prosecutor Hanlin doesn’t just cover for her own son, either. In May of 2012, Ed Wilson a Steubenville Big Red football player and two other unknown individuals shot out the windows of 14 vehicles in Steubenville. Despite being arrested, and confessing to the crime – he was never sentenced or made to pay restitution. The case was handled by Jane Hanlin’s office. Prosecutor Hanlin also testified as a character witness for Branko Busick, a former SHS football player. Specific charges are unknown but he was charged in Morgantown, WV and was essentially an “enforcer” for the team. Hanlin claimed she was testifying as a private citizen but several references were made to both her position and her husband’s in the Steubenville PD. The transcript of her testimony can be foundhere.

Prosecutor Hanlin also remained on the Steubenville City School Board even after receiving notice from the Attorney General’s office this is improper. Her 1st husband is Charlie Keenan, former SHS principal and star athlete in his day.

– Head Football Coach Reno A. Saccoccia –

coachreno

Head Football Coach Reno Saccoccia is the very heart and leader of this criminal conspiracy of silence designed to protect these young football players not only from the consequences of their many crimes, but seemingly from any responsibility in life that would in any way detract from their athletic careers. His close personal relationship with everyone from the high school principal to Sheriff Abdalla have served to make this mere football coach one of the most powerful people in Steubenville. Reno Saccoccia’s sister in law, Marguierete Clark – is the secretary for the juvenile court Judge Kerr. Coach Saccoccia is actually employed as a mediator in juvenile court system! Coach Saccoccia’s motto to his boys is: “lie till you die”. The moment he became aware of the gang rape he attempted to hold off sheriff deputies when they seized the telephones and other electronic items belonging to the perpetrators, meanwhile encouraging his “boys” to delete everything.

But Coach Saccoccia’s regime doesn’t just extend to protecting these boys from the dire consequences of serious criminal activity. Mr. Saccoccia has wielded his considerable power to form a sort of social and academic bubble of protection around these boys in order to insulate them from even the most basic daily responsibilities faced by any other high school student in Steubenville. The students in the classes at Steubenville High School are carefully segregated. Football players take their exams separate from other students, and they are allowed and even encouraged to cheat. The teachers assist the players in cheating on state tests, and this results in a 100 percent pass rate by all football players on these exams.

And finally, this regime goes beyond mere protection. Big Red Football Players are rewarded for their athletic prowess with a carefully moderated system of vice. Assistant Coach Pierro handles this aspect of the “program”, allowing the boys to view porn on his computer – and even providing drugs and alcohol to those who are “extra” deserving. Pierro is assisted in his seedy duties by none other than James Parks, profiled above. The drugs for the boys “entertainment” are supplied by known local drug dealer Nathan Hubbard, who is also a patron of the Spot Bar in Steubenville from which he is known to peddle his poisons. The “date rape” drug used to knock the victim of the gang rape unconscious was supplied by this criminal with the knowledge and consent of Parks and Pierro.

– The Den Of Iniquity –

spotbar

The Spot Bar is located at 217 South 4th Street in Steubenville, Ohio. The Spot Bar has been owned by Joe DiAlbert since 1977. This establishment is the physical home base for the “Old Boys” network that is the heart of the cronyism and corruption in Steubenville. We know that several of the conspirators profiled above meet there several times a week. But this seedy and disreputable establishment is far more than a simple meeting place.

The Spot Bar is the prime watering hole, and “working office” of the drug dealer Nathan Hubbard, who is the primary supplier of illegal narcotics to the Big Red football team. But he is far from the only drug dealer working this choice selling spot. The Spot Bar is well known in the community as the “go to” place to purchase illicit drugs, and is serviced by a number of well known dealers in the community. Given the predilection of certain law enforcement officers from both the Sheriff’s department as well as SPD to frequent the Spot Bar, one has to assume that there is some level of protection being granted by law enforcement in Steubenville for this underground drug market. And finally, deserving high school football players and other under-age students are allowed to drink illegally especially after hours.

One big question that might come to mind when studying this disclosure would be, why? Why this elaborate conspiracy just to shelter and protect a high school football team? The answer is as old as humankind, MONEY. Not only is this football team the very epicenter of social life in this otherwise sleepy little mid-western town, but it is a huge economic engine in the community – generating millions of dollars in economic activity, tax revenue – and income in the form of hundreds of jobs. But not all of the economic activity generated by this football team is legitimate. One of the biggest and most popular revenue streams connected with the Big Red football team is gambling. And the Spot Bar is worked by several of Steubenville’s biggest “bookies”.

While the Spot Bar is by far the most popular, it is not the only “den of iniquity” where this type of activity takes place. Another local business that caters to Big Red fans and players is the Triple Play Cafe in Steubenville. It’s a confirmed fact that underage high school students are in this establishment often. They host an event on Wednesdays during the football season and then allow anyone regardless of age to stay after close to drink and hang out. Its also reported by eyewitnesses that the owner let’s young underage girls in just so he can hit on them. Smoking in doors is supposed to be banned by law as well but after 10:00 pm everyone can smoke in this place.

– The “Rape Crew” –

rapecrew

It is important to state at this point in the disclosure that not all of the Big Red football team are rapists or criminals. In fact, the vast majority of young people involved with the team are good, honest and hardworking athletes simply trying to do the best they can. The focus of this investigation has centered upon a very small group of miscreants who are known by their peers and fellow students as “The Rape Crew”.

Now, the very fact that this core group of criminals within the student body are known by this moniker should set off alarm bells for everyone. This entire investigation has centered around a single rape victim and assault that came to light this summer. But you don’t get a name like “Rape Crew” from a single incident of gang rape committed upon a lone victim. One thing is certain, there ARE more victims out there. One of the chief aims in exposing and bringing to justice the participants and beneficiaries of this conspiracy is to embolden, encourage – and empower these other victims to come forward and seek justice.

Trent Mays: Was a sophomore and a quarterback for the Big Red football team at the time of this brutal crime in August of 2012. He was originally charged as an adult with rape and kidnapping, and held in custody. He has since had the kidnapping charges dropped, the rape case moved to the juvenile court system – and has been released on bail.

Malik Richmond: The only other member of the football team to remain charged. Richmond was also originally charged as an adult with rape and kidnapping, and held in custody. Like his co-defendant Mays, he has since had the kidnapping charges dropped, the rape case moved to the juvenile court system – and has been released on bail.

Michael Colin Nodianos: A former Big Red football player, and clearly an avid and full participant in the “Rape Crew” – Nadianos was videoed along with several other students, some of whom appear to be football players and perpetrators of this horrible crime. In this explosive video, Nadianos goes on for over 12 minutes describing the crime in great detail and confessing to his full participation including raping the girl at least once himself. In addition, Nadianos implicates several other members of the “Rape Crew” in the attack. Local law enforcement had been advised of the existance of this video, but claimed they could not retrieve it. This video was obtained by the Anonymous Cell “Knight Sec” and turned over to LocalLeaks. The video was shot so soon after the attack, that one person present becomes disgusted and actually leaves to go check on the condition of the victim. It is important to also note that despite this strong evidence, Nadianos has yet to be arrested or charged in this brutal attack.

WARNING: This Video Is Extremely Disturbing – Viewer Discretion Is Advised

Michael Colin Nodianos Confession – Original Video Source Download

A student by the name of Evan Westlake taped this video. fellow students Shawn McGee, Niko Murray and Anthony Craig also appear in the video in the background with both Murray and McGee not happy with the topic and pissed at Mays.

Michael Nodianos is 18 years old and is currently a student at Ohio State University. As the video above shows all too graphically, this young man is a sociopath and needs to be in prison not living it up on a scholarship at college.

Charlie Keenan: Charlie is the son of the County Prosecuting Attorney Jane Hanlin and a member of the Big Red football team. He is also a well known member of the “Rape Crew”. One of the parties to which the unconscious victim of this horrible crime was dragged to took place at the Hanlin house, and we have reason to believe that the photo at the head of this section of two of the victim’s abusers carrying her in a comatose state was taken by Cody Saltsman at the Hanlin residence the night of the attack. It is reported that Keenan took video of the attack on the girl, which has mysteriously disappeared.

Cody Saltsman: Saltsman was originally charged in the gang rape. After a private back-room meeting at Naples Pasta House restaurant in Steubenville between Saltsman’s father, the Sheriff – and a certain Mr. Teramana (a wealthy Steubenville resident) – Cody Saltsman’s charges were mysteriously dismissed. Saltsman is a former boyfriend of the victim of this attack, and it appears there is quite a bit of bad blood between them – adding a layer of vengence and viciousness that may explain the raw brutality of the attack upon this girl. Saltsman is perhaps one of the most repugnant individuals the LocalLeaks staff has ever encountered. His posts on Twitter and other social media show him to not only be completely callous regarding the horrendous abuse that he and his friends meted out upon their defenseless victim, but show clearly that this young man is an extremely dangerous sociopath who truly needs to be incarcerated.

codys-sympathy-for-whores

While the charges regarding the attack were dropped against Saltsman, he has provided ample evidence that he was present during this vicious gang rape – incriminating himself with multiple photos that he took of the victim during the various parties she was transported to. Examine these two photo’s, one posted by Saltsman to his Instagram account and the other posted to Twitter by another member of the “Rape Crew” closely. These images are of another unknown victim of the “Rape Crew” published by Saltsman in 2011.

Clearly Saltsman was present during the attack on this girl, making him at the very least guilty of accessory and conspiracy.

Comments

  1. I just want to see justice done in this case. And the Football Coach blacklisted for aiding and abetting this kind of attitude. I’m almost afraid but more angry and I want that coach investigated for any crimes. Run his DNA in the criminal system to make sure he is not more of a “mentor” to these crimes then mere football coaching. And the same for that slime Jim Parks. I don’t know you and I don’t want to see this one get away either. Parks received underage pornography, contributed to the delinquency of minors and may even be an accessory to the crime, ala, Charles Manson style. Meaning, grooming these boys to become criminals for your own sadistic pleasure.

    If it was one of my kids I would be the one expecting them to pay for their crimes to help prevent them from doing something even worse. Be grateful the girl lived. She could have died from those drugs and those boys and a man, already “killed” her as much as they could without pulling the trigger. Think about it? That lawyer needs to put herself in to a male prison and see how much she likes being raped. Yet her rapist son is just a wayward youth right? Who is the real whore here? The boys and they know it!

    Good job exposing all of these crooks and I hope this blog gets the Presidents attention and he gets personally involved in seeing justice against all of the criminals involved in this mess. Not just those thug boys. I want to see those adults go down hard too. Because they asked to be punished. They too had a choice. Is it any wonder those boys screwed up so badly considering the way their parents are reacting now? Backdoor payouts and plea deals …please! Let justice truly be wrecked on all of those involved in these crimes.

    • I completely agree with you. What I find even grosser than the boys criminal activity itself, their blatant disregard for the seriousness of their crimes,and their lack of remorse – shown in the comments they’ve made regarding it all, is the fact that all these third parties and adults are so willing to not just defend these boys, but encourage them, protect them and behave just as maliciously and childishly to do so. It’s as though all these adults who are supposed to know better are more concerned with what little financial gain they receive from a high school football team than the fact that a young girl was drugged and raped, so much, that they don’t even bother to offer the typical excuse, of “It was a mistake, they’re young”, but instead knowingly allow these boys to call themselves “The Rape Crew” and go around with plans to violate other young girls in the town they all live in. It’s a disgrace and the fact that nothing is being done about it is very telling of what our society is becoming. Blatant disregard for human rights and the criminal justice system.

    • So much for “midwest values.” This makes me sick. They could care less about this girl. All involved should be shunned and the prosecutor should lose her job, as well as the coach.

  2. So much for “midwestern Christian values.” All of these people make me sick and the prosecutor and coach should be fired. …Do they not have daughters?

  3. Anonymous Enforcer says:

    Anyone at OSU who wants to be a hero should walk up to Michael Colin Nodianos and spit in his face. Goad him into a response, make him throw a punch, then rip him in two.

    OSU should expel him. If there were any men in his hometown he would be in jail. If I were in that town, he would not be in jail, he would never be found.

    https://www.facebook.com/osu

    http://www.osu.edu/

    Cody Saltsman needs to be in jail. Sitting by and taking pictures while a girl is brutalized is unforgivable.

    Spray paint ‘Rapists’ on the field before games. This community needs to step up and react to this.

  4. this is bullshit and everyone knows that this has been going on for years fuck waisting time put everyone who witnessed it n didnt say shit about it they all ned to be put in prison .the sheriff is a fucking joke wiht all this evidence more then just two should be locked up .they no longer prove themselfs ass gentalmen they deserve to be put in prison and raped by the inmates for the rest of their lives .kill them fuckers for what they did . they better hoe they get that lucky not to end up in a ditch somewhere . steubenvile has went down hill big time n all the corrupt motherfuckers need to just disappear .good luck trying to cover your asses on this one .theres no way out this girl deserves her revenge and i pray to god she does get it .

  5. If that was your daughter what would you do?

  6. Absolutely disgusting. Im ashamed for all man kind right now. Hearing that kid say he would wish his own daughter be dead if she were rapped is disgusting with a bunch of idiots laughing along. The coach id love to see die of a hart attack while the rest are punished accordingly but i wouldnt count on it as childrens football in ohio is alot more inportant than the same human rights people are entitled to in third world countries. Absolutely pathetic and this whole story speaks volumes where we are as people here in america where rape is swept under the rug because the rapists father is weathly and his money gives him the right to take away a womans dignity and selfworth.
    Shame on you ohio and the officals you elect your offically a gross disgrace

  7. As a mother of teenage daughters, I have a viewpoint that will probably upset a lot of people. I feel that the girl needs to take some responsibility for her predicament. If you play paintball and don’t wear a helmet, that’s stupid. If someone comes up and shoots you in the face on purpose that’s wrong. The fact that you did not wear a helmet does not mean it is OK for them to shoot you in the face, however, you do need to accept that the extent of your injuries and damages are due, in large part, to your own stupidity. This girl made a foolish and stupid decision, that, unfortunately, had horrendous repercussions. This does not excuse her aggressors/rapists. They deserve to be punished to the full extent of the law. However, if we truly want to raise responsible and safe kids, we need to point out to our own children what she did wrong that placed her in this situation.

    • To an extent, I agree with the general argument you’re making because it is true we have to take responsibility for the roles we play in anything that happens to us. But in this particular case, to analyze it in such a way would only continue teaching the idea “Don’t get Raped” rather than not to rape because as people living in a dangerous world, every single action we perform comes with many different possible consequences and we can’t anticipate all of them, we can’t fathom some will happen to us, and many times lots of our actions come without consequence so we don’t walk into every situation certain something detrimental will occur. People drink, people get drunk, people are out of their right mind or unable to defend themselves, there’s no reason our society should be so often and casually capable of this kind of wickedness, and that we expect so little from men, that the second a female is drunk, intoxicated, or dressed less than conservatively we say “Well she should have known better”. Actually, our society needs to do better. As women, we are always at a physical disadvantage to men who are stronger than us and so just by existing, we can imagine a number of things that could possibly occur to us at their hands. Does that mean if I leave my house in the morning and I’m murdered by a man we’ll say “I should have know better because it’s likely I can be murdered”? No. If I die in a car crash caused by a drunk driver, no one’s going to say she knew cars were dangerous and that there are drunk drivers out there. We need to stop looking at situations where women get raped as she knew this was possible or she knew her actions could lead to that. Everyday routines we partake in are hazardous to us and our well-being but we do them anyway knowing the risks, because there is nothing without risk. The whole purpose of civil society is so that we don’t have to think these kinds of extreme things will happen to us. I like to try to be bipartisan by doling out blame equally when I can, but not when one party is so clearly in the wrong, and certainly not when it continues fostering this victim blaming our society takes on when it pertains to rape, though they do it with no other crime.

    • She was drugged, how can one defend themselves when they cant even controll their own body. Like almost every teen she went to party, she could have put herself in the situation of only 1-2 drinks buts its defenceless when youve been drugged. Im sorry but this could have been anyone at any event and no amout of caution could avoid her situation besides not going at all. These kids have been known as a rape crew and maybe than she shouldda known better to stay away all together but lets not minimize the sick monsters these boys are, you all saw the videi and saw an absolute digrace of a human laughing about raping woman and even referenced a innocents childs death while the rest of his low life friends laughed on. Theres no excuse for their actions and making claims for the rapists sides while questioning the victum is likely the exact reason these boys do wghat they do.

    • And you my dear are a disgrace to all parents or havnt got a clue how a civil society works. Not wearing a helmet in paintball is in no way comparable to being rapped. You go to paint ball to shoot paint or get shot with it so its clearly a given that a helmet is needed. At which point of painball does a young person get drugged, rapped over and over again and get pissed on? Your a disgusting pig and no better than the animals who rape innocent girls. Why dont you post your feelings on twitter or facebook where a name is assosiated to your ignorant comments. I feel sorry for your daughters to be raised by such an absolute idiot than thinks rape is partially the victums fault. God i pry to god your daughters find your comments on your computer. Yout a complete joke who should need a license to bare any kind of living creature let alone children

    • Dear mother of teenage daughters: By saying that, your premise is assumptive of the fact that any person entering a social event is making an agreement to possibly have sexual relations. For example, comparing parties like this to a paintball event. The people going to a paintball event have already known that they will be shot at with paintball guns for the sport of it, and yes, not wearing a helmet is foolishness. So for people going into a party, we should know that we should expect to be sexually violated? In that case, everyone should stop going to parties, or when you go to parties, do not drink alcohol (as your drink might get spiked) and don’t trust anyone you talk to. But aren’t parties a celebration of people and life? A teenage girl might walk into a party and get drunk and get raped, or maybe she won’t. An adult woman might walk into a party and get drunk and get raped, or maybe she won’t. Are we right to say that every time you walk into a party, you accept two things: the risk of getting raped and the non-verbal agreement (like paintball) that there will be sexual relations involved, let alone sexually assault or assault of any form?

      By saying that she needs to take responsibility for her actions prior to the rape, you are in fact saying that she is also an accomplice in a violation to her own self.

      A teenage boy walks into a party, starts drinking, everyone is drinking. And a group of bullies start beating him up and pass him around to get beat up (true story, happened to someone close to me, and outside of the US, where the legal drinking age is 18) Is it this young boy’s fault for walking into the social event? Did he give consent to get brutally assaulted? Did he walk in knowing that there would be the possibility of getting attacked violently? What would a father of teenage boys say? “Take responsibility for your actions.” ?

      Paradoxically, just because the rape of a teenage girl involves the fact that they are sexually violated, there is a degree to which they are deemed responsible since their bodies have been penetrated/used as objects for someone else’s sexual gratification. I implore us to come to the conclusion that in fact, it is even worse. She is now a victim of violence that has invaded her most private boundaries and has to face secondary wounding, which is condemnation or judgment (“take responsibility/have some accountability”)

      Alas, there is no reason or excuse for rape. Rape is a power thing, just like child abuse, spousal violence and war crimes. How many women/men now can walk into a party or social event fearless, thinking that they will be safe? If your answer is none, then let the whole world stop hosting parties involving shorts, exposed legs, and alcohol.

    • a male human says:

      You are awfully brainwashed by hegemonic forces you don’t even understand, I really feel sorry for your daughters. To even bring up the things you do just gives men more reason to feel that committing these crimes are not that bad. It doesn’t matter what a person wears or drinks. They are not responsible for being raped. You even say that and then negate it by the conent of your comment. As I said I am truly sorry that you feel this way because you are just making these events more likely to happen and I doubt you would speak the same if your children were raped. Its not your fault its the male gaze, its hegemony, its many things. I just hope you educate yourself so you can be part of a solution not the problem

  8. And 1 question to anyone who thinks in the slightest way the victum had any fault.
    If a woman or man is walking home from work and gets attacked and than raped can you fault the victum here aswell? Will you say the victum shouldnt have been there? Maybe its the victums fault for going to work that morning? Maybe the victums choice of clothing invited the attack? This is no different, theres nothing this young girl could have done to let a group of men think she wanted to get gang rapped, she wanted to get dragged from house to house and get urinated on like, degrade her so badly that yesterdays newspaper floating around the subway has been treated better than her. Weather your a mother or father, you cant protect your kids from the world and all we can do is prepare them to make smart decisions. This young girl wasnt given the chance to make a decision because the second she was drugged she was comatose and only a sick monster would take advantage of that. Not one decent person at that party that had enough common sense to speak up and if they were affraid they could have called the police.

  9. Animals, wild animals even have figured out a decent way to mate. Wild animals, the female will pick a mate in some cases or let a group of males fight to see who the female will mate with. Isnt this ironic? That wild animals have evolved further than these pathetic football players who not only rape woman but brag about it and even give themselves a group name for rape. The man who runs their website has dozens of naked comatose young girls on his computer from what these kids send him. The coach is hiding evidence , the law enforcment is claiming evidence doesnt exist and when comfronted he ignores it, oh yeah and the best part, the distict attornys son is one of the accused rapists but hes allowed to rape because his dads ritch and his moms the DA. All were charged as adults but charges were reduced and will be tried as juvies which will bring slap on the wrist.
    THANK YOU To the hackers who exposed this case and exposed the evidence. Amazing to see people like you use your amazing skills for good. I envy you guys for giving a voice to one whos voice wasnt heard

    • Great point Steve! Can you imagine a bunch of lions getting a lioness drunk, mounting her, and a bunch of other lions and lionesses videotaping the whole thing, posting it all on social media so the whole kingdom of lions can laugh their asses off? Then the lioness wakes up and realizes she got sexually impregnated by unworthy/genetically inferior mates not of her artful selection, and the whole kingdom of lions shaves her bald and exiles her from the kingdom. To raise her little cubs all by herself in the wilderness. Or they could just stone her to death for allowing it to happen while unconscious and tell her to take responsibility for her conduct.

  10. Good job steve, how a rape victum is every given any fault is beyond me. Love your view with regards to animals, its so true. Felina id be surprissed if you really have children, you sound like anything but a mother or a woman for that matter, i wouldnt be surprised if your actually a ape using a computer or live in a poorly educated area where rape is nothing to frown upon. Your views are absurd as is your reasoning and comparing rape to paintball only shows your own intellect.
    With mothers like you, its no wonder kids are more out of controll than ever. I assume the dad to your imaginary children sells drugs and teaches little johnny how to make a quick $. Pathetic

  11. If it was my daughter I wouldn’t say a word. Slowly one by one…………………….

  12. I’ve got an idea. How about whore girls keep their wits and not get drunk around guys they are flirting with. Oh wait, it’s too much to ask a girl to take responsibility for her own self. Had she not been drunk, nothing would have happened.

    • Dan, clearly you’re unfamiliar about what happened, which tells me you didn’t even bother to read this article, you merely rushed to comment and victim blame. The VICTIM did not get drunk and forget her “wits”, she was drugged, kidnapped and raped. She is not to take responsibility for the actions of teenage boys who violated her, nor is she to take responsibility for the adults who protect them. And even had this been a situation where she had been drunk, that would never excuse her being kidnapped and raped. Again, even had she been drunk, you still have no right to matter of factly suggest what would have happened. Your ignorance baffles me. I don’t understand how people like you always manage to blame women who are raped for the actions of the rapist. However, I don’t truly care to, you can keep your twisted thought process.

  13. The TRUTH is these GUYS are indeed PIGS!

    I hope they ALL go to JAIL for a VERY LONG LONG time!
    RAPE is not legal. She was INTOXICATED! SCREW RED
    THEY ALL LOOK LIKE PUNKS I’M A GIRL AND I’D KICK
    THEIR AS*ES IN 3 2 1 SECONDS! NERDS loser POSh*ts!

    Regarding the above video; it was difficult to watch for many obvious reasons but what made it worse was seeing that nobody knocked the fuck out of that clown. Where I’m from, seeing a fat ass white boy keep running his mouth like that would at least guarantee him a bitch slap!
    UNFORTUNATELY this shit is nothing new nor has it to do with the “new generation” being apathetic and disrespectful. I was around shit just like this in high school twenty years ago and I’ll tell you, the only effective justice or intervention you can hope for is when peers (not pussies) stand up and do something about it. Yeah, you might get your ass kicked or ostracized in some cases but usually these poor maggots stand down because they know they have (or about to) cross a very dark line.
    So, in other words, peer-embedded vigilantism for-good.

  15. Wow….the parents and the community must be soooo proud…. :(
