Ohio rape. was it? ** edit in red

Coming from a small football crazed town myself. I'm curious what you all think about it.

I've known girls that would get super wasted at parties and end up sleeping with someone and not remembering.

The girl's actions sound questionable.

I am in no way saying it was the victim's fault, but simply pointing out that the circumstances surrounding her rape will make the prosecutions case a hard one to get any real justice out of them. It's interesting to see all the difference of opinion though.

If she is too drunk to remember then obviously she was too drunk to consent

did you see the video?  I mean......clearly she was incapable of consenting to anything.  And to be mocked like that - unbelievable.  I think there is a difference between getting wasted and sleeping with someone and then not really remembering... ( typically this happens on your behalf or while you are engaging in the act as well as the other person) as opposed to literally being passed out and not moving while someone has sex with you. Thats rape. 110%

Google "Ohio Rape" and you'll read all about it. Nothing I read actually said there was penetration. My guess is that it will be dropped to a lesser offense. I think the charges against the other boy should be dropped so that he can testify to the main offender, if not dropped reduced.

There were videos that some of the witnesses and I think one of the boys arrested that taped the girl being assaulted. Not sure if they were removed or not.
