Poor girl.

Wow, and she's gay too. oh... nevermind.
 
2013-03-18 08:56:13 PM
That's a pretty long rape!

That's about all she needed to make her life even worse.

Poor girl.
 
2013-03-18 08:58:55 PM
http://publicshaming.tumblr.com/ - Given how people are already treating her while she was still anonymous, I would genuinely not be surprised if she started receiving so many death threats that she commits suicide. We are f*cking retarded when it comes to how we address rape and sexual assault.
 
2013-03-18 08:59:20 PM
Yep, that'll come up in Google searches for a while.  College / first employment, yay.
 
2013-03-18 08:59:42 PM
So, the girl who was raped by the players who were just convicted is now outed so the ones who were supporting the rapists over her because they were such good sports players now know who to go after for daring to have her attackers punished???

Everyone in her home town already knew who it was.

She could change her name.  Pick something really cool.
 
2013-03-18 09:00:32 PM
Well that really stinks. Poor kid, farked squared. I assume without counseling she will commit suicide.
 
2013-03-18 09:00:37 PM
You've gotta be kidding me. How are they that stupid?

How about a support site for her?

If the media didn't get sued for blaming the school shooting on the wrong guy then they won't get sued here either

You don't get to press charges against someone and remain anonymous. That whole part of the constitution about having the right to face your accusers. And trials are public records so no she does not get to remain anonymous
 
2013-03-18 09:02:03 PM
Like everyone from the high school the rapist went to didn't already know this.

Fox news I can see doing this, but CNN & MSNBC?

"(the boys) did what most people would have done."

Aaaand that's the problem. Stop raping, assholes! Or, stop raping assholes!

2013-03-18 09:03:25 PM
JACKPOT!!!  That sound you heard was lawyers tripping over each other to take the case.
 
2013-03-18 09:03:32 PM
And now sites such as this and yahoo are outing her even more by reporting on her outing. I didn't even know anything about this case until I read it here.
 
2013-03-18 09:03:33 PM
Unless her first name is unimaginably unique, this is not an "outing."
 
2013-03-18 09:04:00 PM
Rape shield laws are complete BS anyway.
 
2013-03-18 09:04:09 PM
Nancy Grace adds her to the "She was asking for it" list.
 
2013-03-18 09:04:48 PM
That is f*cking retarded.

Apparently ratings trump common sense.

Brostorm: Rape shield laws are complete BS anyway.


I'd say they're more than fair for minors, on both side of the crime.
 
2013-03-18 09:06:01 PM
Between the epic failure of the media in reporting her name, and the biased reporting treating this as being about some kids whose lives and promising athletic careers were ruined by the conviction, the media has a LOT to be ashamed of here.

Seriously.

I wish there was some way we could help the young lady.
 
2013-03-18 09:06:47 PM

Darth Skywalker: lawsuit in 3.. 2..


Question: what law did they break?  Seriously, I'm aware it's bad form and all, but is it actually illegal to out a minor?  I have no idea what the actual law is.
 
2013-03-18 09:07:27 PM
But it's okay to drag people who are accused of things into the limelight with not discretion at all prior to any convictions?

Really it should be unheard of to name EITHER party without their consent by name before a court case has been decided not because of the law but because of common decency.
 
2013-03-18 09:07:28 PM
WTF?
 
2013-03-18 09:07:53 PM

Great Janitor: So, the girl who was raped by the players who were just convicted is now outed so the ones who were supporting the rapists over her because they were such good sports players now know who to go after for daring to have her attackers punished???


I'm quite certain that all the kids at the school knew exactly who she was, probably most of the people in town too. Odds are, if you were really motivated to find out who this poor girl is, you could do so within a couple of hours. This certainly makes it worse for her though, now that even the dimmest bulbs will be able to find her name.

Warlordtrooper: If the media didn't get sued for blaming the school shooting on the wrong guy then they won't get sued here either


Well, in this case, it's a First Amendment freedom of the press issue that anything in official court record is fair game for the press. Incidentally, it really wouldn't surprise me in the least bit if her attacker didn't deliberately say her name in open court precisely because he knew the cameras were rolling.

Sorry, I did not see yours before I posted. I completely agree with you. She will have no life after this and many very conservative folks will chuckle and egg her on. fark all those cheap ditsy blondes at Fox news and CNN. Seriously. Couldn't one of those bimbos have spoken up?
 
2013-03-18 09:08:20 PM
Why is any of this crap even news?  shiat like this happens everyday, but as soon as it's about attractive, young white people OMG MOST IMPORTANT THING EVAR!!!!!1!!
 
2013-03-18 09:08:39 PM
I guess that boy got his revenge on her for squealing about being raped before he ever started his sentence didnt he?

As if there was a difference between the networks...

No win possible. It's not illegal. SCOTUS already said laws like that are unconstitutional.

Cox Broadcasting v. Cohn and Florida Star v. BJF

Poor girl.


Um.  Just fingered, right?  Because we did shiat as kids in the 70's that apparently today would cause the world to halt on its axis.

I suppose I'm the Great Obamasatan but.. not seeing the whole court uproar thing.  Ass-kicking by brothers, yes.
 
2013-03-18 09:10:06 PM
Her mother was being interviewed before. It wouldn't have taken a rocket scientist to figure it out.

But there should still be a pretense of confidentiality when it's a minor. Dumbasses.

Any law they might have broken would be unconstitutional anyway. If it's said in open court, it's within the First Amendment freedom of the press to report it.

FauxNews and Fauxnews north(canada) needs to be prosecuted due to their treasonous acts and their obvious race baiting.

No doubt federal law enforcement could shut down the f*ckers in one shot.

And any farking teabaggers protesting can be shot for their f*cking ignorance via their brainf*cking washing.

Any Farkers up for heading down to FoxNews creators grave site and pissing on it? Just sign the petition at whitehouse.gov

/Lets see,,, 5 million dollars from fauxnews and a country in the world that will give her full residency.

//Did you hear that some football coach assf*cked a couple of dozen little boys? Don't know if hes in prison yet, maybe he is coaching your kids.

//Rumor is that Rush Limbaugh farked a bunch of young teenage boys in the Dominican. airport border authorities know about it but were blocked from prosecuting it.

This will never happen.
