Terrible consequences for everyone — 43 Comments

  1. Sky- Thanks for the update. He hosted the party at his house, may or may not have provided the alcohol, but certainly didn’t take it away from any of them and knew what was going on as well as what ultimately happened and he gets a slap on the wrist, a wag of the finger and told he did wrong… Yeah, whoopity-dooo-dah to that. Where’s the incentive for him NOT to do that again? And what else happened there before this that wasn’t brought to the public’s attention?

  2. This comment was in the section below the story Skylar linked to-

    “USNavySquid •
    If my daughter was raped in your house while you were the only adult there, Steubenville coach meet Louisville slugger.”

    Not that vigilante justice should be allowed or that anyone has the right to do this, but I can certainly understand their frustration levels.

    • There was a case not too long ago when a father found a man raping his 9 year old daughter and beat the man to death with his fists. The father was NOT prosecuted.

      I’m not for vigilante justice where a gang of people or even one person goes to someone else’s house and attacks them for some crime they did in the past…but when it is going on in front of your eyes, it is my opinion that you should subdue the offender on the spot with whatever means necessary.

    • Joyce……….the word, “tacky,” doesn’t work for me in this instance. I believe and feel that it is OUTRAGEOUS that this young man would be “allowed,” “invited,” or “encouraged” to participate in ANY extra-curricular activities that do not involve victim restitution or public service. Period.

      I cannot imagine what ails the School Board, the District Superintendent, OR the local magistrate/legal system to allow such a scandalous and appalling thing to happen.

      That kid should be spending EVERY waking hour when he’s not in classes or studying on PUBLIC SERVICE and VICTIM RESTITUTION. Period. Until he’s 35 years old, he (and, the other convicts of this crime) should be atoning for his sins.

      Damitol, but this really infuriates me.

      • Me too, Truthy, I used “tacky” because I knew the profanity nanny would ###### the word I really wanted to use. LOL

        Personally I don’t think he should have been allowed back in that school at all. He obviously has NO SHAME to come back there, and all his buds will see that raping a girl has very little consequences, you’re still a football hero. UGH!

  3. GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENT: Joyce will continue to be offline until about July 21. I am certain that she’ll have a story to tell upon her return…………

    😀

  4. Well, I’m baaaaak!!!! almost burned my housej down with a fire on the back deck smoking meat! All is well, mostly damaged a few boards and burned my internet connection in two. But I’m back up now. Thank goodness no worse damage was done. Lesson learned about smoking meat on a wooden deck. Ashes do fall out of the smoker.

    • Joyce, what a terrible travesty! And, I’m shocked, but not surprised.

      Referring to my response to the Prince Andrew issue, INFLUENCE plays such a role in meting out of justice. Power, influence, money, fame, etc………..those things factor so heavily, and I don’t believe that the scales of justice will ever be balanced.

      As for how long it’s going to be before Mays harms another person? Not long. Someone who is THAT comfortable hurting someone else is addicted to that feeling of power, and that’s just about it. Now, what’s going to happen the NEXT time? Hopefully, he won’t end up murdering someone and he’ll spend most of his natural life behind bars.

      Then, there’s Karma – Karma will come knocking at everyone’s door in its own good time. I’ve met Karma, and others have, as well. Karma doesn’t work through malice or a sense of vengeance. Karma sets the Universe back into balance, IMHO. So…..this guy is going to have to stand accountable for what he’s done, one way or another.

      He most CERTAINLY is a piece of steaming, stinking shiat.

  5. Here’s a very interesting article on a study done asking college male students if they would rape if there were “no consequences” and about 1/3 of them said yes. Wow, that is shocking but not really surprising to me.

    Close to 1-in-3 collegiate males admitted in a recent study they would force a woman to sexual intercourse, but many would not consider that rape, Newsweek reports.

    The survey found 31.7 percent of men said they would act on “intentions to force a woman to sexual intercourse” if they could get away with it, but just 13.6 percent said they had “intentions to rape a woman” if there weren’t any consequences.

    The authors of this study note the difference relies on whether or not they described what constitutes sexual assault, versus whether they simply called it rape. For this study, the researchers defined rape as “intercourse by use of force or threat of force against a victim’s wishes.”

    When combined with what the study’s authors described as “callous sexual attitudes,” the results suggest a man with a hostile attitude toward women may view “forced intercourse as an achievement,” and a woman saying “no” could be “perceived as a token resistance consistent with stereotypical gender norms.”

    The study, “Denying Rape but Endorsing Forceful Intercourse: Exploring Differences Among Responders,” was published in the peer-reviewed journal Violence and Gender in December. University of North Dakota psychology professor Sarah R. Edwards was the lead researcher.
