STEUBENVILLE OHIO RAPE
please share, this girl deserves justice.
Tumblr world. I would like to bring the Steubenville, Ohio rape to your attention. If you have not heard about it, here is a link: http://www.slate.com/blogs/xx_factor/2013/01/03/steubenville_ohio_rape_anonymous_gets_involved_and_the_case_gets_even_more.html
The police are prepared to look the other way because the “Rape Crew” are football stars. I’m not about to let that happen. I’d like to thank Anonymous for calling out most of the people involved in the rape, as well as those responsible for sweeping it under the rug. They have collected evidence and compiled it into “The Steubenville Files” which can be found here:
Not only was this girl given the date rape drug:
- she was dragged from party to party while unconsious
-she was ridiculed by friends and adults
-she had naked pictures taken of her while she was unconscious
-many acquaintances tweeted at her and about her that she deserved it and that she was a ho
-she was URINATED on while unconscious
-the “Rape Crew” invited others to touch and violate her
I don’t know where you are honey, but there are good people out there. We will try and help you. No one deserves to be treated this way. WE WILL HAVE JUSTICE
share because no one should have to go through this
Please, everyone read this. Everyone.
I’m at such a loss of words over this. I hope that social media and “digital witnesses” can cause enough stir to have these pieces of garbage tried as adults and to hold others accountable for their involvement and cover-ups. Props to Anonymous for their vigilante actions, because it’s obvious that there are so few people in Steubenville that give a fuck.
Imagine if this was your sister or your best friend or … you. At 15. And your community tells you that it was deserved. The corruption is so deep in this story that I can’t even wrap my mind around it.
This is especially haunting considering that I also came from a very small town in Ohio that revered football as a top priority. If it can happen in Steubenville, it can happen anywhere similar.
I seriously don’t want to live on this planet anymore. Like, really. Shit like this makes it so damn painful.
