Hacked Video in Steubenville Rape Case Gets Wide Media Play

There are 11 comments on the The Nation story from Jan 4, 2013, titled Hacked Video in Steubenville Rape Case Gets Wide Media Play. In it, The Nation reports that:

I first covered this highly disturbing story after The New York Times ran a major story last month on the "coverup" and controversy in Steubenville, Ohio, involving a vicious sexual assault on a teen girl--the silencing at least partly due to the fact that some of the alleged perpetrators are high school football players in a football-mad town.

Trust me when I say that Miss Allred is informed about
this travesty of justice. After all, Gloria is a champion of
women's issues and this cover-up will be(has been) exposed.
Small town "politics" is America's hidden shame and the people
involved will be made to "account" for themselves.
The legal advice given by Steubenville prosecutor Jane Hanlin
to the young female victim of said alleged rape is a major
faux pas on Jane Hanlin's part. That is the "nice,respectful" way
to put it. What Hanlin has done was to try and convince,I'll call
it cohearse the young victim to not pursue charges against any of
the involved. Be it directly or indirectly. You see,miss Hanlin's
son is a member of the football team. A conflict of interest?
You bet. Steubenville prosecutor Jane Hanlin has now removed
herself from the preceedings.
Seemingly a noble thing to do on Miss Hanlin's part. I think not!
Unfortunatly for her "the case" did not die. The case did not
go away. The attempted cover-up was exposed and Jane Hanlin has
an abundance of explaining to do for her part in her
"major oversight". I call what Hanlin did a crime!

Now,if little ole me(a concerned citizen) can put this together,
what will Gloria Allred be able to decipher from all the code
speak around Steubenville.
To all participents of the crime and cover-up,look out! Common
sense and compassion will be making an appearence in Steubenville.

Africa is the most intelligent place on earth. They watch children starve to death every second, they burn witches, and you know how witches need to be burned. They have the African space shuttle, the Zebra 1.

They were predominantly WHITE who committed the crime. Two who raped her and who were not brought up on charges (one bc the mother is the prosecuting attorney) were white. F'ing idiots.

How is the public protecting all minors in this town? Are these boys allowed in the school system presently? They should not be around minors be it male or female due to their lack of control of sexual proversion. They all need to be under house arrest and forbidden near children.

I believe they are still enrolled and enjoying their lives as if nothing happened. They are Gods to be worshiped and admired.

In Steubenville,football is more important than the lives,safety and well being of those outside of the uber glamorous world of high school sports entertainment. We don't need academia,we need more entertainment.

High school sports trumps the court system. The justice system. The Office of Prosecuting Attorney. It trumps everything. Football is everything. There's nothing better than wearing your little gay Big Red cap whilst living the town. That little red cap is the most important thing you own. It's the only symbol of pride you'll own. That little cap is a fashion statement. It sez "I'm a Dutch Boy!!"

Steubenville has a lot in common with Penn State. Just like football was more important to Penn State..than uncovering Sandusky's world of pedophilia. The raping of little boys was ok......As long as the football program was running smoothly.

Status is more important than having scruples and morals.

Acceptance by the town's royalty is more important than children. Oh my goodness,the coach waved at me!! I am somebody!! Oh my goodness gracious!!

And the overt hypocrisy is amazing. They'll do anything to protect their beloved little boys game. They'll cover up anything so the games go on. Then in the same breath,they'll ruefully declare how the world is going to hell in a handbasket and make their way to church to see who's the best dressed. Because church isn't about Jesus so much, as it is the place to be seen.

Dont worry, if the State doesnt get a conviction and more of the Rape Crew indicted, then the Feds will definitely step in. They can refile using Federal Charges so there's no Double Jeopardy under that.

the only admissible evidence is the word of a town slut over the words of several upstanding members of the community including members of the clergy.
the video was not obtained via any legal means and thus can not be used as evidence when charging or prosecuting anyone.

No more charges will be filed and the ones that have already will get off with a slap on the wrist.

I will be back to laugh and say I told you so when it becomes evident I am correct.

Even if they do get off, their names are faces are everywhere, no respectable college would ever take them.
