Hacker activists helped propel coverage of the rape case and press allegations of a cover-up...


Good thing they didn't get backtraced.

No.

No, I don't.

I feel no pity for the legal issues brought on by people helping cover up the crimes of rapists.

Unfortunate photo, yes.  He's also only about 5'5" - and looks nothing like a state AG or a former US senator.  Nice as all get-out, though.  My family's known him for going on 40 years now - we used to attend the same church.

If you're a school official, and become aware that a rape took place and you try to hide it ... you bet your ass you deserve to be punished.  Imagine sending your daughter to a school like this knowing how they'd react if something every happened to her.
 
2013-11-25 05:20:57 PM
I'm kind of surprised, usually they let the first one slide when football's involved. Imagine if the boys had been Mathletes?

I delivered eggs, cheese and butter to MANY restaurants and stores and produce places and delis in Steubenville, Wintersville and Weirton Wv twice a week. There was a lot of organized crime back then. The nicest customers were the mobsters. I never had to pack a lunch or buy lunch because they would stick food in my hand. The ethnic food was some of the best food I have ever eaten. They had it all. Italian, Greek, Polish. You name it. The area is very diverse but was always grungy looking

Oh - because if you support men's rights to equal treatment under the law in situations like family court or affirmative action or whatever - that's the exact same thing as thinking women deserve to be raped or treated like property.  Thanks for identifying yourself at the top of the thread, that should make it easier for me to filter.

At the risk of being serious on Fark, expanding the scope of the inquiry into the responsible adults is a good first step in slowing the rape culture.

I'd say that creating a system where anyone that comes across evidence or hearsay about something like this would be too afraid of being prosecuted like this to ignore it would go a long way toward discouraging would be rapists because it will increase their odds of getting caught that much more.  This is a good place to start if the goal is preventing coverups in the future.

Because the former does not often identify with the Men's Rights Movement unless they share the views they tend to defend - namely the "traditional values" idea of a 1950 household type woman.

Here's a helpful protip for you, you persecuted little snowflake - Men's Rights Activist talking heads were defending the Steubenville teens and the adults involved in this case as being persecuted by the "liberal radical feminist" agenda.

I'm pretty sure "Men's Rights Activist" is a made up terminology to mock anyone that takes a side against a feminist in any argument ever.  Could you provide a link to an actual self-avowed Men's Rights Activist the way you describe it?  Because it sounds like it's completely made up.  Maybe you should think about using different terminology when you are specifically talking about rape apologists.

Benevolent Misanthrope: The only thing I know about Steubenville is that there's a fundamentalist Catholic University there.


Is there ever.  Back in high school when I was still Catholic I got invited to some weekend summer camp thing there.  I thought it was going to be other relatively sane Catholic kids akin to my local church's youth group and we'd all hang out and make out and have a fun time meeting people.

Instead, I got tents of frothing fundies.  Literally.  For the first time in my life I was introduced to the wild bullshiat that is "speaking in tongues" and all kinds of truly wacky fringe teachings about how Margaret Sanger and Hitler founded Planned Parenthood to eliminate the black race from the earth.

Catholics don't DO that shiat.  Sure, the church is farked up in its own way, but this was the very first time I was ever introduced to that kind of weird nonsense.

It was probably the first time I actively wanted to distance myself from religion, however, so it probably gets credit with being my first real step towards Atheism.  So they have that going for them.

you realize they choose photos that fit the picture they are trying to paint of the subject of an article right?  (by the way, I am not white knighting this guy, I only clicked the article after reading your post.)

but it reminds me of about 15 years ago (god, I didn't realize it had been so long until I typed this) but there was a local news report that was doing a smear campaign on someone close to me (by the way, I acknowledge my lack of impartiality in regards to this) either way, the photo they used of the subject was obviously taken from a video a split second before he blinked.  the subject of the "news story" (it wasn't even news worthy) sued his employer over the thing and got a settlement.  I claim that it was a non story because they ran it every night for a week.  the other three news stations in town didn't even bother and neither did the paper.

smear campaign.

it didn't "happen" to them, they are accused of trying to cover up the rape of a 16 y.o. girl. That doesn't just "happen" to you.
