You, Stupidvilleman, like the trolling with trivial information. Actually, the "protest" here is not a protest, it is a "rally" in support of a rape victim. It is the detractors that try to "blurr" the lines. check your sources and try again please.

^ United States of America v. City of Steubenville, Steubenville Police Department, Steubenville City Manager, in his capacity as director of Public Safety, and Steubenville Civil Service Commission, Civil No. C2 97-966, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio, Eastern Division, August 28, 1997

So before you speak about this "fine city's officials" be sure to check the *** at the door

Corruption by city officials is rampant in stupidville. Has been for years. Did you know.... Steubenville is only the SECOND city EVER in the USA to sign a decree --->Over a period of 20 years the city lost, or settled out of court, 48 civil rights lawsuits involving its police force. The city paid out more than $800,000, $400,000 of which was between 1990 and 1996. As a result, the city's police force became the second city in the United States to sign a consent decree with the federal government due to an excessive number of civil rights lawsuits. The decree was signed on September 4, 1997 under the "pattern or practice" provision-- Quoted from wikipedia, which was cited as follows

Greetings widomaker41 your comments ammuse me. The people of Steubenville have never supported rape. Your smear campaign is going nowhere, how long will it take for you to figure that out?

Greetings stupidvilleman, glad to know that those supporting a rape victim in Steubenville makes then a terrorist. We should have more terrorism if that is the case. Stupid is putting heads in the sand when something happens. Being a fool is quite common among those that "don't want to get involved".

Greetings masked terrorists. What facts have you actually uncovered during your smear campaign? Oh sorry I forgot that facts are not at all important. The kind people of Steubenville will let you continue to prove what fools you really are.

There is no Statute of Limitation on rape.

These animals will all eventually get theirs, it's just the innocent that will have to pay.

It is time for those who were witnesses to step up & if they ask the FBI for a deal & witness protection (relocation) they will probably get it.

Better to start a new life somewhere else than to live with this hanging over their heads for eternity.

I'm curious if we should be expecting the "Honorable" Jane Hanlin to be testifying on behalf of the accused rapists? Seems it would be consistent with her history as a prosecutor, which would make absolutely no sense in any other courtroom in America but oddly makes total sense here.

Witness tampering is not a crime?

Not only football players but the wrestling team as well. Latest allegation is that #rapecrew instigator Cory Saltsman had his own sister "trained" (his term) by 9 atheletes. Throws suspicion on all.

Also: Archived tweet to silence @sHUFFle_board:

skitdaddle@WhoDat_RealDeal Aug13

@sHUFFle_board I would keep my mouth close bang bang!! Retweeted by Trent Mays

That is a death threat. Where is the #FBI in taking full control of this investigation?

Punish ALL of them, stop the culture of rape. Win as a team, LOOSE AS A TEAM. big red is disgusting.

Not every athlete that attends Big Red is a criminal. Making the assertion that NO Big Red high school students should be allowed to enter college on the basis of 4-8 individuals would be a crime in itself. As for those involved whom haven't been charged, carma is a b1tch. Somehow, somewhere, they will be bitten by the same or worse as they committed.

This thread is supposed to be about Hanlins' bogus statements and how she is trying to distance herself from any culpability.

It doesn't sound like the kids who were present and didn't do anything will be prosecuted as accessories to a crime. These kids were apparently raised in a culture of rape and they will never change. The only way to protect our communities is to not allow any of them to attend colleges where our daughters and granddaughters may become their next victims. I urge everyone to join me in writing to the universities that have football teams and ask that none of the boys from Steubenville High be recruited to their college football teams. If they are recruited, the universities are knowingly recruiting kids who have lived in a culture of rape and therefore will be targets for massive lawsuits by any students or locals who are raped by these boys.

Most everyone on here states the same thing, I don't need to add to that, instead, lets discuss conflicts in her statement==> #1: my ethical duties as pros....prohibit me from discussing details, than next sentence.. Allegation me or my son involved... my house... is 100% false.

Which is it? I believe that would be possible details of the case until the case is worked out in court..

Forensic tweets suggest juveniles not happy for taking the fall. Perhaps State prosecutors can offer a deal & relocation for testimony.... Tweets included 1 which asked what the big deal is, they train (gang) rape (at least) 1 girl EVERY year. ... There is good evidence that the 16 yr old girl was raped by a minimum of 4 young males & none of her sons wrestling team has been charged. The ex boyfriend & the girl who allegedly set her up to be drugged (as vengence for daring to break up with him) have not been charged with conspiracy? This is a can of worms that has not even started to be opened up. I can promise you this though, Steubenville will see no rest until ALL of the rapists are behind bars. The silence is only going to drag this on longer than necessary. If it drags on too long then the good kids are going to leave town after graduating & all Steubenville will have remaining is this trash. Is that a town you want in your future?

Hamlin 100% deceit, she should be investigated by FBI,the truth will come out. 2 weeks to destroy evidence (knows exactly what to destroy)before recusing herself, knowing all along she is required to? ... Attempting to discourage victim from pressing charges? ... Her son & home involved? ... Son involved in $50k vandalism at golf course, no punishment? Sons wrestling team more involved than football players but none charged? Only juveniles charged because less penalty? Were they encouraged to "step up" to throw off investigation?

I am pretty sure complicity is a crime. Why no charges, yet?

This may include some adults as well.

I have contacted the attorney generals office in Ohio. I will not stop either until ALL of the adults who provided alcohol for these parties are brought to justice! That includes prosecution to the full extent of the law! I am not going to stand by and allow the State of Ohio to lower the legal drinking age to 16 either. My next call is to the federal government to pursue federal racketeering charges for the jurisdictions that refuse to protect children by not prosecuting criminal adults corrupting minors! The State of Ohio did not create laws for local law enforcement to turn their backs and decide not to prosecute the criminals. DO YOUR JOB!

This woman ran unopposed for office as did Abdalla. We can't get rid of anybody here via elections.

Prosecutor Jane Hanlin was a character witness for Branko Busick (former all-state football player for Steubenville High School.)

“I was asked to testify as a parent of a son who was starting to wrestle and looked to Branko as a mentor.”

Morgantown police said they had connected Busick to two robberies in the city. Police said Busick attacked a man then stole the victim's iPhone and wallet. During the second robbery, police said Busick pointed a gun at a group of people inside an apartment, demanded money and beat one man with a gun.

She is so crooked. Her statement was too carefully worded. Part of this TOOK PLACE AT HER HOUSE and she didn't recuse herself immediately. Disgusting. She's going down with the rest of the rats.

I thought she should have gotten reprimanded when she testified for Branko Busick as a character witness. She was prosecutor at the time. Unethical move in my opinion. Oh....wait...... He got off too.
