It's Coffee Break Time! Hot Topic: Can Justice Be Served In a Small Town?



Welcome to Mom to Mom's Tuesday Coffee Break! 

The disturbing case of teenage boys in Steubenville, Ohio who have been accused
of raping a 16 year old girl last August is being played out on the national stage.
Accusations of a cover up are rampant because the boys are high school
football players. Football players, in a part of Ohio where football is King.

     You can click here for more details. 

 

1. Have you been following the news coverage of the Steubenville case?

2. Do you think the accusations of a cover up are valid?

would like us to serve you!!

We hope you have fun and enjoy your time with us!!

While it seems there is an attempted coverup going on, i am sure the hacker group, which im sure we all know which one, and is involved now, will bring to light what those dont want to be seen and/or heard. 

While i have not followed the case from the very beginning from what i have read it seems they are guilty and i hope they get what they deserve

Quoting addyangel:

I haven't followed the reports of this case in Ohio but when I did hear about it I thought they were talking about a recent case in my town in Missouri. The cases are disturbingly similar except in my town the rape happened in December and the boys dumped the girl on her front lawn in subzero temperatures. One of the boys took a video of the rape on his cell phone and the prosecutor declined to prosecute ANY of the boys, he said there wasn't enough evidence. All three were high school football players, one was a state senators grandson and another was the son of a bank vice president. Our school refused to let them back on the football team though. At the very least those boys should have been charged with possession of child pornography or statutory rape. At least 2 of them were 17, which is the age in Missouri at which you can be charged as an adult, move out of your parents house, etc. The victim was only 14. It's sickening...

I think it's absurd they are being tried as juveniles, when clearly those pictures and video show no remorse. How can anybody make such sick jokes? I hope all those kids reap the fruit of such horrific actions.
