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.

Are you related to one of the rapists? Is that it?

Wow, so the prosecutor didn’t bow out, despite a clear conflict of interest.

and how does that change anything?

They still committed rape on someone who wasn’t even conscious. If she were such a slut they should have waited until she woke up, right?

The coverup of the crime is very incestual.

Hildy, I agree completely.

About 2005, I turned in my cable T.V. and never looked back. I had my computer and could watch the shows that I wanted to watch, when I wanted to watch, and avoid the annoying commercials. (I would occasionally miss the robotic remote-control clicking, but not by much). I also realized that there was this thing called Outside, and I meant to get me a larger chunk of it (for sanity and health).

When I would go to my sisters' for the holidays, and they would have T.V. on, I was horrified (and, like you, no prude) at the state of what passed/passes for the New Normal Ratings and Content. Horrified.

I don't mind at all, salty language and salty situations, but F-bomb this and F-bomb that and the Seven-Things-You-Can't-Say-On-T.V. are now the new normal? When did that happen? Even those annoying commercials are even more annoying, emasculating, and filled with drivel.

Sigh. When children, teenagers, and college kids are fed a steady diet of pablum, racism, ignorance, greed, envy, sloth, rage and anger, reverse racism, sexism, misogyny, misandry, glorification of homosexuality and deviant behaviors, the destruction of morality and ethics, the championed destruction of marriage and family, the emasculation of men and boys, and the conspicuous and intentional absence of anything related to morals, ethics, personal responsibility, personal accountability, and God-- it is no wonder that T.V. is a great and terrible factor in the destruction of Western civilization.

No role models, no teaching right from wrong, no rational actors/politicians/newsmen and women/men and women of the cloth/etc., standing up and fighting for what's right in this country, our culture, language, and institutions.

And history will record that we did it to ourselves.

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.


True.. Obama is indeed punishment for it all..
America is degraded.. most are addicted to something.. even food.. various drugs.. entertainment..
America has become corrupt.. generally..

Not all politicians are corrupt but most are..
True.. Federally, most States, and even locally..
Don’t look good either.. I don’t see it changing either..

The train is boarding for Chaosville...
Any optimists are pretty much delusional..
The White Hut and minions are enacting Saul Alinsky tactics brilliantly..

They seem to hoping for chaos creep.. and aid in every conceivable way..
When the welfare cards go blank chaos creep will become chaosville..
Large and not so large city’s will become war zones..
Seems many many are preparing for it.. (wisely)...

How awful. If a footballist can be found guilty in Steubenville, then there must be no place in America where they are above the Law.









And this is bad, because?

No, Hildy’s right. People just don’t want to accept the fact that theough their Dish and cable payments every month, they empowered all the crap coming out of Hollywood and the MSM.

That’s a fact. Because if everyone didn’t send that 50-100 bucks a month, there WOULD BE NO MSM or crap to put on TV.

And yes, it is that simple. I gave up TV in 2000. I have not missed it. What I did do was gain a lot more knowledge through reading, entertainment through learning music and other more sane diversions.

But as long as people can keep watching Football and every other Liberal pushing bit of crap, they will deny it, tolerate it and yet complain about the very thing they themselves fund.

Honestly, how do you happen to know this girl was a slut?
Just curious. Do you have a 16 year old daughter, or one that was 16 once upon a time?

Just strikes me as a remarkable comment, looking for some insight into how you came to that conclusion.

What used to be considered a slut, is now the new normal.

The major point is, they were messing with the high school football team. That will get you hurt in a lot of small towns. After the good factory jobs disapeared, high school football is all that they’ve got left. That and the monthly EBT re-up.

Oh stop it! That is such nonsense.

I’m asking an honest question, stop trying to be glib, it’s juvenile.

I don’t know this girl, her history, if this was a usual thing for her to be sloppy drunk, if you do know, then by all means, direct me to that evidence.

rape is not just sex but violence agaisnt another person Is that supposed to make it worse than if it were about sex?

Has our society become so demented that rape is regarded as no more significant than someone grabbing your hand and shaking it without your permission, so that people have to emphasize the violent aspect of it to make it seem serious?

I gave you my honest answer. What was once considered slutty, is normal behavior today.

>> The girl was a slut IMHO.

I don’t know if she is a slut or not, but I’ve got a really hard time believing she (or anyone) was so drunk she did not know she was being raped.

It's all the girl's fault, of course. The Imam told us so. (/s)

More seriously, anyone see a pattern, or is this just more sports hero can do no wrong crap?

Does not really matter if she was a “slut” or not. The 16 year old girl was drugged, dragged from house to house and gang raped. Consent was not an option since she was not conscience during the attack. The behavior of these “boys” is beyond despicable. Those defending the “boys” are uncivilized shameless degenerates.
