Steubenville Shrew Crew Head Cheerleader Unmasked

Debora Still of Steubenville, Ohio

For the past two years a number of Steubenville locals have used social media with the same MO as the kids did on the night of the rape in August 2012 – to bully, humiliate, harass and intimidate.  One of the more vitriolic and vapid users going by the name  “Jordan_Renee91″ has been especially vocal in her spewing of hate and today her identity was revealed…by HER no less.  Apparently her #vintagecam app accessed the Twitter account that she used to bully anyone who supports me or anyone that spoke out against the Steubenville rapists or others.

Last night when she took a selfie, it auto posted to her Twitter account.  The picture was also cross-posted to her Facebook. Twitter users started calling her out about her faux paus and she now claims that she never posted any picture on her account and attempted the  “it wasn’t me” defense.  She deleted the photos from her account but screenshots were grabbed.

What’s the word I’m looking for here?  Oh…karma.  Yeah.  Deborah Still has used an anonymous Twitter account for the purpose of harassing and bullying for almost two years, and when she was outed – it wasn’t done by anyone other than herself.

Deborah Still has repeatedly tweeted to me for these two years demanding my attention, and I ignored her. Today I will address her.  Does this post come off as trite?  Perhaps, but as I sit here and think of how ugly some of the attacks on innocent people close to me were for the sole purpose to harass me – trite doesn’t matter.  Principle matters and finally being able to put a name to one of the vapid Big Red mouthpieces is a victory. She and her sister have both engaged in some egregious online behavior in support of Big Red and the not so innocent kids who started the whole Steubenville mess.

No one harassed this woman.  No one has posted photos of her family and no one has posted lies about her, but she has done all of these things and has made it a point that her mission is to “bully” me because she feels entitled to do so.

Welcome to Rapeville

I’m going to continue updating this throughout the day in an effort to highlight why people are so disgusted with residents of Steubenville, Ohio.  Read for yourself how some of the locals talk about this case.  Down right shameful.

Big Red Players Accused of Rape & Kidnapping

For anyone who has lived in the Ohio Valley area, they know that high school football is a very important part of the culture of that area.  High school football Friday nights are a source of entertainment for young and old.  The local television stations even curtail regular programming to run the games live.  To an outsider, it seems a bit over the top.  I mean, it’s HIGH SCHOOL football for crying out loud.  Not the NFL or college, but high school.  Big Red football stadium looks like it could be a college stadium complete with press box and big lights.  Football IS the Ohio Valley and the student players are treated like  sports royalty.

Two 16-year old football players from the Steubenville Big Red football program were charged with rape and kidnapping charges this morning in Jefferson County, Ohio and are being detained in the juvenile detention facility on those charges. On August 11 a female student from a neighboring school was  brutally raped by members of the football team she met at a party.  Not only did they rape her, but videos were made of the rape and posted on Youtube, and from what I have been able to determine by some of the tweets that I have read, they were also being posted on Twitter.   On August 14, she and her family made a police report to the Steubenville Police Department.

Prosecutor Jane Hanlin had said she will step aside in prosecuting the case because she personally knows some of the juveniles named in the investigation. An official determination is pending as to whether she will ask the Ohio Attorney General’s office to take over the prosecution.  In my opinion, if she knows the juveniles, then she should do the right thing and step aside so there are no claims of impropriety based on her relationship with the boys or their families. 

I have been following the twitter accounts of many of the football players and students about the attack, and quite frankly am a bit shocked that some of them are supporting the boys.  This was tweeted about the victim.  “You supposevly [sic] get “raped and tweet happy shit #idontgetit #dumbbitch and was retweeted by one of the football players.   What is a rape victim SUPPOSED to do after a brutal attack?

The boys have not been publicly named and the local news WTOV Channel 9 has turned off comments for any of the news items they post about the incident.  Odd, huh?   In the state of Ohio, the law says that the names of people charged with crimes, even juveniles, are public information, however, the names of the players have not been released by the media.  There is no reason why their names should not be released to the public.  They videotaped and photographed their crime – in my opinion, that’s a slam dunk case.  They have the smoking gun.  They brutalized their victim further by posting images and video of the attack for others to view.  The video has since been pulled, but WHO does this?  What normal person would even consider that posting the brutal rape of a young girl is something that should be shared with their peers?  Do they think because they are Big Red players that the rules don’t apply to them?

It amazes me how society places a higher value on athletes than it does for the people who protect and give their lives for our country.  [author redact - thank you to those posting factual links to base my opinion on.  I do recognize that I am not always right, and would never want to be.  I appreciate the dialogue and the opportunity to educate myself.  Learning is part of growing as a responsible adult.   -p]

I’ll be following the Big Red rape story to see how this one plays out.
