“RAPE CREW” COACH BLATANTLY DENIES COVER-UP, BLAMES “ANONYMOUS” FOR PERPETUATING FALSE CLAIMS
Two football players kidnapped a sixteen-year-old girl who was possibly drugged and too drunk to resist and took her to several parties where she was then raped. THE EVENT WAS EVEN LIVE-TWEETED BY THE PEOPLE INVOLVED.
From the NYT website: “Twitter posts, videos and photographs circulated by some who attended the nightlong set of parties suggested that an unconscious girl had been sexually assaulted over several hours while others watched. She even might have been urinated on. In one photograph posted on Instagram by a Steubenville High football player, the girl, who was from across the Ohio River in Weirton, W.Va., is shown looking unresponsive as two boys carry her by her wrists and ankles. Twitter users wrote the words “rape” and “drunk girl” in their posts.”
Local parents and authorities in Steubenville, OH are invested in covering the story up, claiming the girl “made it up” to cover up the fact that she drank too much and was out late, and that it’s ruining their football program - despite the fact that there is evidence of these boys laughing and talking about the rape on video and through social media as it happens. DON’T LET THESE SICK BASTARDS GET AWAY WITH IT JUST BECAUSE THEY’RE PRECIOUS FOOTBALL PLAYERS.
(Sidenote: “Dead” is a euphemism for “drugged”.)
HOW ARE WE AT A POINT WHERE WE WILL DEFEND RAPISTS EVEN WHEN THEY HAVE TWEETED, POSTED A PHOTO, AND RECORDED A VIDEO BLATANTLY ADMITTING - BOASTING ABOUT - THE FACT THAT THEY RAPED SOMEONE? WHAT THE EVER-LOVING FUCK.
VIDEO of the rapists’ gloating. Warning: the video is disgusting. In the twelve-minute original, some fucked up shit is said, but what stuck out the most was when someone got disgusted and went to go check on the rape victim and asked Michael (the guy telling all the jokes), “What if that was your daughter/sister?” And he replied, “I wouldn’t care.”
STILL NOT UNDERSTANDING WHY THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO HAVEN’T HEARD ABOUT THIS.
STOP “LIKING” THIS.
FUCK YOUR HIPSTER SKINNY WHITE GIRLS SLEEPING IN FLOWERS AND HOLDING MUGS BLOG AND SHARE THIS INFORMATION.
THIS IS NOT A “SILENT SUPPORT” SITUATION.
I’M NOT COUNTING “LIKES” FOR THE PRIZE OF JUSTICE FOR FUCK’S SAKE. TELL PEOPLE. GET PEOPLE ANGRY. THEY NEED TO BE FUCKING LIVID.

Disgusting sub human scum. Proof sport is for apes.
I can not believe this world. This is disgusting. Justice needs to be brought. That video is awful. I am sick to my stomach

i was waiting for a post with a trigger warning about this to reblog it. i just watched the video. i think what’s most disturbing about this is how fucking oblivious everyone involved was about just how wrong the whole thing was. maybe oblivious isn’t the word, more like nonchalant. scarier still is that the whole scenario is way more common than people would probably like to imagine, i remember being 16, and being around people with these attitudes who were certainly capable of those acts. this is by no means an isolated incident, and if you were looking for an example of rape culture, this is it. a bunch of dudes clearly rape/aid in raping this unconscious girl, laugh about it, and high five while completely evading responsibility for their actions. this case is horrible and upsetting, but get more mad that it is not unique. this is a prevailing attitude. this prevailing attitude is protecting the people who did these awful things, and it makes me sick to my stomach that this whole thing is being drawn out when there is so much evidence.
