Anonymous Comes to Steubenville

It took “outsiders” to help raise voices and awareness to how the subject of rape was perceived in Steubenville, and around the world. It was GLORIOUS to watch the streets fill with people who were in attendance at the Steubenville rallies to support Jane Doe. It was even more amazing to witness the many who then took to the courthouse steps and use the platform to talk about their own stories and truths. I wish…

Steubenville Screenshots

Back in 2012 when I first heard about the rape case, I began researching publicly available social media to get an idea of what was going on because local media hadn’t provided much information. Within hours I had accumulated tons of information and decided to save screenshots of what I found because I was so appalled at what I was reading from those who were present, and others who were not but who were opining…

Trent Mays Accused of Sexual Assault…AGAIN

I really hate to say I told ya so, but…yeah…TOLD YA SO! I don’t think any of us that were involved in the Steubenville case or who followed the trial closely ever thought that Trent Mays would go silently into the night. Privately, we all discussed our fears that two years in juvenile detention was not long enough for him and that he would more than likely re-offend. His apology was more of an “I’m…

Where Is Amiah Robertson?

For as long as I have been blogging about missing children, my contrition for their parents has only grown worse. Generally, the outcomes are not good and a parent is usually involved. I feel no different with Amiah Robertson’s parents and caregivers. There is so much that is SO wrong with the information coming out of Indianapolis where she is from. She has been missing since last week. The dates are in conflict. One would…

Vinton County: Victim Blaming/Shaming and Lack of Bystander Intervention

This week 45-year old Dewey Thacker of MacArthur, Ohio was charged with crimes associated with doing nothing while a 12-year old wrestler was assaulted in the wrestling room at Vinton County High School. Seven wrestlers were involved in what some locals are referring to as “horseplay” but what legally amounts to sexual assault and battery. Dewey Thacker has been charged with child endangerment, unlawful restraint, complicity to riot (meaning he must have instigated the assault)…

Vinton County Wrestling Team Assault on Student

45-year old Dewey Thacker is facing misdemeanor child endangering charges stemming from an incident on February 5 that was caught on camera at a Vinton County school when he witnessed an assault on a 12-year old boy in a high school wrestling room and did nothing to stop it. It is unclear what Thacker’s position with the school wrestling team is as he is not a board approved assistant coach or volunteer. He has now…

Covington Catholic: “It’s not rape if you enjoy it”

I’m just going to put this right here. The video is the same group of Covington Catholic High School kids. This time showing girls from the girls school, and not one of them said a word about this comment “It’s not rape if you enjoy it”. This is disgusting and these kids are not innocent as their parents’ PR firm is trying to paint them. They showed their true selves when the surrounded and taunted…

Er’body is Getting SUED!

Well…it had to happen. There should be a handbook for privileged shit parenting because the Covington Catholic High School parents just took a page out of it. *le sigh* Rather than owning the behavior of their kids, which was DISRESPECTFUL, the threat of defamation suits are being tossed around as well as “criminal charges” for federal child abuse. WUT? What does that even mean? Instead of using this as a teaching moment about showing respect…

Covington Catholic, Check Your Privilege

Within the past 48-hours of the video of the boys from Covington Catholic going viral, I am not at all surprised by the parents and their community buckling down and making excuses of #fakenews and claiming that “MSM manipulation of actual events and an outright misrepresentation of what occurred this time jeopardizing the future of good kids.” I guess I shouldn’t expect that parents of kids who publicly humiliate themselves, their families and their communities…

Arrest in Jayme Closs Case

Jayme Closs was missing for 88 days when she was able to escape her captor and run for help. Jayme was secreted away in a home in Gordon, Wisconsin by 21-year old Jake Patterson. Law enforcement has stated that Patterson was never a person of interest in the murder of Jayme’s parents, and has no criminal background. This guy was totally off the radar and was holding Jayme 70-miles away from her home in Barron,…
