From the website PUBLIC SHAMING:
The news out of Steubenville today is a *small step* in the right direction for a town that seems to be plagued with cover-ups in an attempt to save their beloved football team. Two young men were sentenced to juvenile detention in the Steubenville rape case today. I suggest you look up what they put the victim through if you are not familiar with the story. Anyway, as per usual when the internet discusses rape, there’s some pretty horrible stuff online today.
Take it away, Twitter…
Want to see the face of two rapist? Want to see what it looks like to be small town football heroes who can get away with raping an innocent girl, an underage young girl, at a “house” party?
Defendants Trent Mays, 17 and Ma’lik Richmond, 16.
Now guess what amount of jail time Judge Thomas Lipps handed down to these two rapist…..
In sentencing the boys, Judge Thomas Lipps urged everyone who had witnessed what happened in the case, including parents, “to have discussions about how you talk to your friends, how you record things on the social media so prevalent today and how you conduct yourself when drinking is put upon you by your friends.”
Trent Mays, 17, and Ma’Lik Richmond, 16, were sentenced to at least a year in juvenile prison in a case that has rocked this Rust Belt city of 18,000 since last summer and led to allegations of a cover-up to protect theSteubenville High team. Mays was ordered to serve an additional year for photographing the underage girl naked.
They can be held until they turn 21.
The length of their sentence beyond the minimum one year will be determined by juvenile authorities; they can be held until they’re 21. Lipps said that “as bad as things have been for all of the children involved in this case, they can all change their lives for the better.”
The two broke down in tears after a Juvenile Court judge delivered his verdict. They later apologized to the victim and the community, Richmond struggling to speak through his sobs.
“My life is over,” he said as he collapsed in the arms of his lawyer.
Let me interject right here that the lives of rapist should be over in more ways than one, for these two young idiots.
Here’s more on the case from the AP:
STEUBENVILLE, Ohio — “Two members of the high school football team that is the pride of Steubenville were found guilty Sunday of raping a drunken 16-year-old girl in a case that bitterly divided the Rust Belt city and led to accusations of a cover-up to protect the community’s athletes.”
Am I the ONLY one who finds this entire case and how a backwoods dumbass community handled this unspeakable assault and rape of a young girl…..disgusting AND despicable?
America is one fucked up place to live in 2013. If you have children who have yet to reach adulthood….chances are they won’t reach adulthood before being raped, assaulted, or murdered.
America….love it as it is…..or work like hell to change it.
My simple solution for any & all rapist is castration.
My solution for dumbasses who condone and defend rape/rapist, is simple as well…..they should be raped. Yes I know thats a very harsh way of thinking, but lets face it, as Americans, most things that are issues to one person, are not an issue to another person………..
Unless it is experienced first hand.
Murder by guns does not bother Americans unless it happens to touch their lives. Americans don’t give a damn about cancer taking a life, until someone they know dies from cancer. Americans are the most selfish self centered society on the planet.
Until some tragedy hits home.
For any human to defend a rapist or the crime of rape by saying things like “She asked for it” or “she got what she wanted/had coming”……that person needs to experience the violent act of rape.
