Props to Subbs for not mentioning which party in the headline. Although, it is the DailyKOS so you can probably guess.

Resubmit the link with a better headline if you must, just want to see this get out to the masses.

Maybe I just suck at Google tonight, but this is the best I found for an actual news organization covering it: Link (new window)

That was a week ago. I'm holding off on my outrage, there may be a reason those charges were dropped other than my grandpa is powerful.

The video was "never found" after the phone was confiscated and the rape kits hadn't returned. The fourteen year old couldn't recall the incident. Smells pretty rotten to me.

Ghastly: Boys will be boys.

Rapists will rape.

at least with dropping the charges, charges can be refiled later.
one would hope
one would hope that the parents would buy some aluminum bats and go have a talk with the rapists and the parents

Wow, that's pretty disgusting. Although it has more to do with shiatty local politics and not which party you align yourself with. One of Mayor Daley's nephews got away with murdering a guy in a bar fight not too long ago....

Actually, in Animal House, the guy decides not to fark the girl who has passed out. Only when they make love near the end of the movie-does he find out she's 14. (I guess it was funny in 1970's)

I don't think he ever did screw her. But she didn't remember it either way. "Dad, here's the boy who molested me."

Eating Old People to Save Social Security: Is it ever possible to get an unbiased source for information?


What does that even mean? How could you tell if something was "unbiased"? How would it look different? Would it give both sides - reality and fantasy - and refuse to discuss which is more likely to be true?

And then they'll take you to jail, where a bunch of pale, naked dudes will jack off their tiny, pixelated penises until they ejaculate one by one all over your face. Or at least that's how I think it works over there, based on the movies I've seen.

Well, when the media doesn't want to cover a story, you're kind of left with the fringe wackos with a credibility problem. Hopefully Kos reports it, and then a news agency with more resources can investigate it. That would be an ideal system for the new tiered media. But like I said, there are some stories the mainstream media just refuses to touch (Obama's signing of the NDAA for example was widely ignored).

The media does not owe you information. They just report what they feel like letting you know.

another link with real information
Link (new window)

Bottom line, a seventeen year old boy has sex with a fourteen year old. At the same time, a fifteen year old has sex with a thirteen year old. All had been drinking. The fourteen year old was dropped off in her parents driveway passed out. The seventeen year old is being charged with endangering the welfare of a child for that. No where does it say they couldn't find the cell phone video of the incident.

My guess: The prosecutor has the video, it shows a very much awake and active participant in the sex. Regardless if their's a video or not, the seventeen year old admitted that they had sex, why wait for the rape kit? The ME report would show if their was any physical trauma, and none is even alleged.

Possibility one: Prosecutor has the video and statements of consensual sex from three of the four minors. There is no physical evidence of rape. The fourth minors position is "I don't remember anything"

Possibility two: Prosecutor has no video but has the statements and a lack of physical evidence

Possibility three: Prosecutor has a video and evidence but is covering it up

Which possibility do you think is more likely?
 
2012-03-21 06:07:51 AM  
More fake outrage.

All Kos cares about is that it's a way to "go after" a Republican in some form or fashion, that's it. That's all they care about. It's not unlike the 'raped and locked in a crate' story that came out of Iraq that liberals got themselves completely convinced must be a 101% slam dunk case that ANY jury would convict on... Only to find out that it didn't have a leg to stand on in court.

If there is some act of malfeasance at play here then it will come out but running around screaming "conspiracy!" in this day and age over something like this? Do you seriously think that if it was some grand cover up that the powers at play would think they could get away with it? This is what happens when your brain is so full of hate that you automatically assume the worst and draw it out to the conclusion that you want to believe.

Let's wait and get some facts before we start screaming "conspiracy!"

As in most cases, a quick Google search provided two stories from reputable sources with much more information and no obvious ax to grind. In today's world, with access to nearly every news source world wide, the number of times that the best source of information is some lunatics blog is exactly ZERO!

The reason that they're posted here is that they're usually much more sensationalized. And THAT'S why they're the links we get.

thoughtless: Possibility four: you have only a foggy idea of what rape and consent are


So you have a mastery Missouri law? All four participants are minors. No one has made any allegations of the use of force. The prosecutor may or may not have a video of the fourteen year old on top of the seventeen year old riding him like a porn star, yelling "CUM IN MY ASS!"

Now admittedly, my scenario is a little extreme. Go ahead and give me one that fits with what we do know, that would allow a prosecutor to get a conviction with a Missouri jury.
