Had the victim been a Steubenville resident as the one back in April of last year who was raped , this would have been swept under the proverbial rug. Because the girl is from Weirton, the corruption of Steubenville / Jefferson County has little means of fear tactics or intimidation.

There is a great article on line entitled " Why No One Trusts Steubenville ". Even media from Europe know of the sleazy reputation " Little Chicago " is known by.

There are so many public officials and the community's social elite involved it is difficult to connect a timeline of why it took so long to act.

Reno Saccoccia looks like both a Soprano goon and a total coward buffoon thanks to the media. Nobody can explain why Saccoccia even has a job and why he has autonomy over the school board, principal, & superintendent. All this REINFORCES to image of Steubenville as a small town entrench in corruption, Ole Boy politics, and even the school system as being dirty.

I cannot believe that the "city" has the audacity to post a "facts" based website....proclaim their transparancy...YET....have the website PRIVATELY registered. Until they stake claim as to who controls information on this site, it should not be trusted. #KYSTEUBY

From what I can gather.....the Steubenville Facts site is privately registered. So much for transparancy. There is an Arizona phone number attached though. WTH?

Who is the administrator of Steubenville Facts? Just curious as to who can see who is visting the site. I see that they have a BLOG feature which is yet to be enabled. Do yourself a favor......find out who in particular is running/controlling this site before posting a word on it. Again.....WHO HAS THE "keys" TO THE STEUBENVILLE FACTS WEBSITE? Inquiring minds want to know.

Because they have no record and the judge decided justice would be better served going through the juvenile process. I think what people are forgetting is, it's not just about arresting these boys, sending them away, and throwing away the key. Honestly what would that do for any of the kids involved? The boys need to know why what they did was wrong and I'm in agreement with the Judge I think that would be better served through the juvenile system.

Why aren't these young men being tried as adults?
