Yea, it’s a high school team. One of the Gawker sites (I think Deadspin) did a lot of coverage on this.
It’s your common case of a small town that has nothing else going for it other than HS football. Thus the town is protecting these guys even though they fully admit, acknowledge and as you can see joke around about what they did. It’s disgusting.
If there was ever a time where I wished Team Leverage was real…
That was a long article, worth the read though. Anyways, I’m sure this shit happens every week in countless schools but at least this time 2 people were caught. It’s sad how so often groups of people especially those who under go hardship in one form or another are so willing to turn a blind eye to injustice when that injustice threatens something that brings them happiness. As a human race we should be better than that and have some fucking convictions.
The girl probably was raped but none of us will ever really find out for sure, so to assume either way with pointlessly heated conjecture is a waste of text. That being said it is possible she is just using the rape card so she isn’t punished by her parents for being a slut, wouldn’t be the first time a girl lied to the public.
The more I read about this story, the more it pisses me off.
Apparently not only did they rape her, but they carried her to and from multiple parties? And the apartment where the rape occurred is leased to someone connected to the football program specifically for them to party? They established themselves as “The Rape Crew” and have been sending photos of their activities to a school official?
They videotaped and took photos while they were doing it - I think we know for sure. The articles on Deadspin clearly state the original Ohio writer who was investigating took screengrabs of everything before they rapists deleted them. Anonymous and KnightSec have a zip file (which they released apparently) with even more evidence concerning them
How exactly do pictures and videos prove she didn’t give consent before she got drunk? The evidence obviously points to typical athlete worship, I’m just saying a lot of girls in the U.S. wreak havoc on men via a legal system that bends over backwards to accommodate them regardless of what the truth is.
Wow, that wasn’t mentioned in the article, where did you see that? That’s ridiculous in and of itself but especially since the judge recused himself for having a grand daughter that once dated a player.
