Thread: Stubenville, OH rape case

I read Dan Wetzel's column on this when the story first came out, and read his article after the trial was complete. Really sickening display of a lack of concern for other people, and all the kids that let it happen deserve whatever punishments they receive.
Also have to look at the culture that these kids are being raised in. From what Wetzel wrote on yahoo, these kids basically got away with anything because they played Football, that's just so wrong.Click banner for tradelist

Should have been charged in adult court and given a mandatory 12 year sentence, no parole. General population as well, no favoritism shown.
Their sentence is a laughable joke.

Last time I checked the consumption of alcohol by anyone under the age of 21 is illegal in the United States. It is illegal for situations like this. A minor is not mature enought to handle alcohol. No one is saying that this girl deserved to be sexually abused or that the boys were in their right to do so but would we even be having this discussion if she would have said no to alcohol in the first place?

What if she wasn't a minor? Would you still be for punishing a woman for being raped?
I don't know if you know this, but while common sense tells us there are decisions that can avoid this, we also live in a society where there is zero reasonable expectation of being raped regardless of your current inebriation. That means that no matter what, rape is never the victims fault. Does she share some personal blame? Sure, just like the gang member whose kid got shot. But legal? That's just sick.

Obviously she does not have the means to pay for the trial but she needs to be taught a lesson about making responsible choices. I don't see what's wrong with making her take some type of drug/alcohol course because a crime was committed partly because of her underaged drinking.

And there's nothing wrong with a course, so long as those two boys, everyone who watched or shared pictures and everyone else who was there at any point of the night has to do the same.
Otherwise you're punishing her for being a victim. Thats just disgusting. I'm glad this is the internet because I couldn't even look at you right now. Disgusting.
