Being responsible is everyone's responsibility.....the accused and drunk victims. Yeah, you'd think a person ought to be able to go out and get drunk without any ill consequences.

The 'coach' who joked about the rape and tried to 'take care' of the incident should be charges and sent to prison too! He is just as guilty as the rapists for fostering a violent jock 'culture.'

The victim wasn't drunk. She was drugged with date rape drugs.

What the hell is in the drinking water in that town?
Where are the adults? Goodbye coach, your an insult to your profession. Anyone involved in not stopping this when it was happening should get jail time. I wonder how they can look themselves in a mirror, and not be sick.

I agree with Retired Cop. Where were the adults? And why aren't the adults arrested for giving booze to kids?

These boys are lucky they live in Ohio In some states they would of ended up in adult court.

What really gets me angry is that there are kids that think this is funny and some kind of a joke.

Would these kids be laughing if it was their sister or mother of been the one that was raped?

That's more of the stupid mentality of wanting to blame rape victims. That's why over half of teen rape victims don't report being raped. My bet & guess is the victim in this hasn't been the only girl ever raped in Steubenville. But I bet she's one of the very few to have guts enough to have reported it.

Why don't more teen rape victims tell they've been raped? Because ignorant people put a stigma on rape victims.
