Keep up the good work and keep pressuring these inbreds until every one of the rape crew is in prison grabbing their ankles for bubba and jamal! That includes the coach!!

Myself and many others in Steubenville are working to purge this filth from our town. We are tired of corruption and crime. This used to be a great place to live. We want it back.
I'm glad to hear positive agendas coming out of such disturbing revelations. No time better then now, while in the fishbowl with MSM watching. Hoping for much success in your efforts.(:

Thank you. We are really hoping that we can change things here. The problem is convincing others that they have a lot less to lose by getting these scum out then by continuing to ignore the problem and give this cabal free reign over our town.
Don't get me wrong, those invested in the status quo have a lot to lose, not just money but their freedom too. But it is hard to feel bad for them when they care so little for others, especially the victims.
You seem more like the scum by using Topix to fester your grudge.

If you can't argue with facts contradicting the obvious, your input is not needed. JS
You see,when people resort to personal attacks,(usually well into a disagreement) and not with valid points disputing the source of contention... The argument has been won, Or the other's point of view only proven true or superior. Coming into at the start, with nostrils flaring, only further makes this point. Thanks for playing though.(:

You're not involved in an argument or debate. You are smearing and defaming people because you have some kind of agenda which more than likely has something to do with your past and an athlete or athletes as a group. I also suspect that blogger who contacted anonymous was more than likely fat in high school and the jocks made fun of her. Her hang ups and personal issues caused her to constantly check back and 'spy' on her hometown. She seized an opportunistic moment and chased her few minutes of fame while at the same time vindicated herself against a time in her life that more than likely wasn't pleasant.

This case is tragic but it is an insult to those who have been truly raped. This victim passed out just before she gave a hand job to the 'rapist'. If she were awake, I'd be pretty sure she would have encouraged the fingering and maybe more. The victim made a choice to get drunk and according to testimony, this is what she does on the weekends.

Texting the pictures is where the real damage begins. The Internet is filled with drunken kids and young adults. There is College Acb, BroBible, the guy who insults the girls, and many other sites who promote posting pictures of girls and boys who would be too drunk to consent.. I can see why the teens didn't think what they did were wrong. As adults, we can't imagine it. Get inside the drunken mind of a teen and it would make Alice in Wonderland scream for escape.

You know, I get a "parent" vibe from unreal. Someone who is really upset and worried about their child's future. If their child is/was part of the rape crew, they should worry.
Maybe you're closer to this case than you're leading on to. I'm an onlooker and think your behavior is filled with an agenda. It is pure scum to take your personal troubles to the public arena by beating up on juveniles. Every one at the party should be doing community service time for underage drinking, including the victim. If she got injured driving drunk, she would have to suffer the repercussions. The rapists shouldn't be going to a detention center, they should be required to serve time in a women's crisis center. They are all in need of an education. This was an example of underage drinking, lack of supervision and ignorance. ALL parties are guilty in that regard.

You, on the other hand, seem to have some kind of special interest. Maybe you're the janitor who gets a thrill when the big 'birds' get shot down. Just remember that Karma is a bitcvh.

Best advice for teenage boys: Stay away from the slots. Just because you may get lucky, you may end up with P4P on your snake eye.

Maybe I am closer to the case than you know. You can tell me all about it if you want. You have the same power I do on here. We are all equal and use our words however we wish.
I do not deny that I have connections with many involved in this and other cases. Any wonder, as I have spent most of my life in Steubenville?
Karma is indeed a bitch and we are watching her in action now. I will get everything that is coming to me. I can accept that and take responsibility for what I say and do. I'm a grown-up. I don't make excuses for what I do nor do I blame what I do on someone or something else (such as alcohol).
What these boys have done on MANY occasions is simply an atrocity. They are not living in a sane and loving environment. If you are from Steubenville then you know the truth. Apparently you have not been able to see, from my words and others', what the truth behind Steubenville is or you choose to ignore it. That is your prerogative.
Our little rape crew has not taken responsibility for their actions. Malik did not, nor did Trent. They took responsibility for getting caught, that is all. The other boys in the rape crew are expecting that they will continue to do whatever they want with the support of the coaches and town. They are not expecting to go down because they did nothing wrong in their mind.
The reality of the situation is that they finally got caught. And now they ride the Karma train with the rest of us.
You're nothing better than an Internet bully and similar to what one site says about Michelle. You have an agenda.

Like I said, buddy, go ahead and call me all the names you want.
You are right, though. I DO have an agenda, which I have already told you about. But, let me remind you.
I love Steubenville. I have spent most of my life here. I raised my kids here and watch them grow into the fine adults they are today. Over time, I have also watched a cancer grow in our beautiful little town.
This cancer is the greed and corruption of the cabal running our town. You know their names already. They are simply put, crooks. They will do *anything* in order to preserve their power over you and I.
It is time for these crooks to go. Away from our town, preferably to prison. It will happen in some form or another. Soon. I promise you this.
If you are part of the cabal or if you support them, you are part of the problem. Myself and others have vowed to get these criminals out of our town and ensure that justice is served. Our numbers have been increasing daily. We are angry at what has happened to our town.
Do you understand now?
Did your kids want to play football and couldn't make the team? The stuff you spew is totally nuts and screams something about your agenda. Those kids made terrible mistakes all fueled by alcohol. They received their punishments but you obviously want more blood.

I think it's more insane to provide alcohol to teens and let them party in your house and destroying evidence so the kids can play in the next football game.

your lies and rumors will not become truths if you say it enough. One would have to ask what parent is stupid enough to send their kids to these parties if they have a rep to rape. Sounds like you are an angry nut job who is exploiting this tragedy to further an agenda.

I too thank Michelle, Prinnie, and Anonymous they've renewed my faith in humanity. Regretfully there are a select few in the area who have been very vocal about their disgust with these Anti-sexual assault activists who have embarrassed those of us who have morals. Anyone doing their part to help bring an end to violence against women should be appreciated not condemned.

Please stop with the agenda nonsense you're not only embarrassing yourself, your friends, and your family but also the rest of us who live here. It is apparent those those Big Red boys viciously raped an unconscious girl while their friends stood around snapping pictures and recording videos. According to News reports and the boys themselves a 14 year old girl was allegedly raped four months prior to Jane Doe. Both Jane Doe and April's alleged victim were subjected to vicious online harassment by their peers. Upwards of 50 letters of character were submitted to the judge by the community in defense of a rapist when the community should have been rallying around the victim(s). It was apparent to anyone on the outside looking in that the victim(s) were lacking the community support they deserved and needed and is exactly why outsiders gave their support. The agenda is to see an end to rape culture. Steubenville is not a bad place to live in fact it is a lovely community to raise your family but there are some bad apples ruining the city's reputation.

You are an embarrassment. Ironic that you would know something about morals. Teach your kids to take responsibility for their actions. If you don't want them wandering in a drunken daze, make sure they get home at a decent hour. Be a parent rather than a whiney child.

Sickens me to read this comment! You want to blame it on alcohol? You are just as guilty as they are! I know this thread is quite old but I followed this case from the second I heard until those boys were convicted. I check into it now and then and came across a few posts now blaming the drinking! I call bull shit! Those boys were able to go house to house with that girl and carry her in and out from car to party how many times? And you still try and say alcohol was what made them do it? You are sick! Just as sick as those who took part in the rapes!

Let's hear it from one of the boys that were there that night?

Hey, Nodi, was she raped? How thoroughly did they rape her? What if that was your little sister? You wouldn't want that to happen to your little sister, would you? WOULD YOU?
