Hero Faces More Jail Time Than The Convicted Steubenville Rapists He Exposed

Ironic..Sad..and Pathetically More Common Than It Should Be

Once again a person has to wonder, even question-our judicial system. In the pursuit to provide each Citizen with a "fair" trial according to the 6th Amendment of our Constitution, I feel more often than not, the guilty receive far better treatment. Is our Judicial System biased? I believe so!When a person tries to help another, to expose a crime and catch the perpetrator(s) steps outside the law themselves. Much like the law enforcement officers themselves do from time to time. Ends up in more trouble, more charges and a longer sentence than the Rapists of the young girl will receive.

I understand that the girl has a reputation and she was drunk when the rape took place at a party. To the women who read this...If by chance one night, you had one too many at a dinner or bar on Girl's Night Out. As you were walking to your car, you were suddenly attacked and brutally raped. Would it be your fault because you had had too much to drink? Your fault because you were wearing something other than a burlap bag? For the Men who might read this...what if this was your Mother, Wife, Daughter or Sister? No one deserves to be brutally attacked, let alone raped. Reminder:the girl was only 16 when this happened.  Here are some comments I found on this subject-

To me it seems as though the young woman's life was worth far less to the establishment than the crime of hacking into a computer. However, let us not forget that the Rapists' were members of the local Football Team. In most areas the all mighty and wonderful Football Teams are so important that Academics are cut in order to support the Team. The student population on the whole, will pay the ultimate price, their education in order to support a bunch of boys that will never make it to the Pro's. Who will end up stuck in their small town, in a dead end job, over weight, married to their high school sweetheart (who they wish they could divorce) talking about their Glory Days and pushing their sons to play so they can once again, re-live their Good Ol' Days vicariously.

There are more times than not, when it's down right frightening to me, the world my sons will live in..or try to live in.
