STEUBENVILLE - Jefferson County Prosecutor Jane Hanlin and her family had to leave town during the juvenile rape trial because of threats made against both her and her family.
Sunday evening, Hanlin confirmed that threats had been made, and she found them to be credible. Hanlin said there were instances of threats before, but the number of threats of a specific nature grew.
"As the trial date grew closer, we received a number of them that seemed to be more credible than others," Hanlin said.
Welcome to the New Normal, where the rapists get all the sympathy from the liberals. You are just not tolerating their culture properly.
It's getting bad in this country.
You’ve heard apologist for the girl’s disgraceful conduct? Hmmm.
The boys were evil and they deserved more jail time than they got. However... The girl was a slut IMHO.
My husband and I were watching prime time TV tonight...show after show of the crudest sexual content you’ve ever seen. It would be considered soft porn a decade ago.. Now, it’s routine. Women are shown as sex objects, nameless, faceless bodies that hop in and out of men’s beds without any feeling or intimacy. Music videos and popular culture show women as whores, shown only as the sexual objects they represent to men and referred to in the most crudest of ways, not only by men, but by other women!
And then we are shocked, horrified to see young men doing exactly what they’ve witnessed for most their lives without shame or remorse...and we wring our hands and asks how could this happen. TURN ON YOIR DAMN TV.. LOOK AT WHAT YOUR CHILDREN ARE WATCHING 24/7... I am 54 years old..I don’t consider myself a prude, but sometime I blush at what I see during what’s marketed as FAMILY HOUR TV. It never ends.
Every show is about sex...even the Church women who used to
Protest these things have given up. We have done this to ourselves. So it’s a bit disingenuous to act all self righteous now.
“I’ve heard a lot about how horrid the boys were in this case and a lot of apologists for the girl and her disgraceful conduct.”
Two guys rape a girl and you felt...what? That it wasn’t horrid? Would you have felt different if, say, the girl was mentally challenged, and didn’t understand what the guys were doing to her?
Here is my take on this: rape is not just sex but violence agaisnt another person, male or female. There is no excuse for young men or boys to do such a thing no matter whether the person was drunk or mentally challenged.
We should be rearing our boys to be the kind of men who are protective of the weaker members of our society, not men who take advantage of the weaker.
we did not do it to ourselves; the twisted writers in Hollywood appealed to men’s basest instincts and since most of them think constantly about sex, there you have it.
you would almost think that one of the accused was a minority, and the accuser was a middle class white girl.
Wondering...will the girl’s Dad seek Dad’s Justice?
Thanks for that graphic. What do we expect when we have Planned Parenthood and other groups teaching our kids that sex is just for recreation and has no real consequences. And our bodies are just objects for pleasure. And humanity has no real dignity and can be discarded when inconvenient in the womb. And now speaks louder about discarding it after birth or when old and inconvenient. In a culture of death isn’t this what we can expect to see more of?
oh by the way, is Jane Hamlin Caucasion? Did that have anything to do with it perhaps?
There is absolutely no joy in this case. If anything this sort of atrocity occurs regularly and is rarely prosecuted. Think of what happens to urban young girls subjected to the tender mercies of gangs and homies. Rap lyrics tell all you need to know.Sadly such decadence is no longer rare in America and this trial is shocking only because there was an actual prosecution.
We as a society allowed it. And now, just blindly accept it.
They’d be blaming the girl if she’d been murdered, too.
The fact is, one of the parties took place at Hanlin’s home, and then she attempted to discourage the girl and her family from making a report. She also got the case moved to juvenile court before she bothered to resign for conflict of interest.
Do not defend these disgusting animals
I haven’t paid attention to this case, so the name Hanlin isn’t familiar to me.
But I’ve noticed there is usually a reflexive action to protect boys who do such crimes, particularly if they’re involved in competitive sports.
This is not always the case but it happens often enough to be immortalized in fiction and movies.
These two boys were part of a larger group of football players who called themselves the rape crew. Let that sink in. There are some very ugly details about the case that the MSM is not covering.
Why would members of the community threaten the prosecutor to protect these dirtbags?
