Deborah Still Reaches for the Sky

Since being outed Deborah Still aka Jordan_Renee91 has pulled the “I was h4x0r3d” excuse and continues to dig her hole a little deeper on Twitter.  I am going to update this post and continue to post screenshots of all the Shrew Crew on the forum because it is important for people to realize that the kids behaved badly for a reason…the adults in their lives.  These people are bullies, liars, and victim blamers. She has already alerted her work but she’s “not Deb”.  She has no desire to make anyone jobless, but she and her crew of hateful pals have not only threatened to contact employers, identified employers of those who they disagree with and have tweeted to employers…BUT she is worried about her own conduct at her employer? REALLY?  It sure hasn’t stopped her from Tweeting to my business … Continue reading →

Planned Protests for Steubenville

I wanted to get a post up about any potential protests that might take place at the Steubenville High School football game this coming Friday or after. Tempers are high because Steubenville City Schools and Steubenville High School has allowed Ma’lik Richmond back on the team.  Coach Reno Saccoccia says that he deserves a second chance and the city leaders also seem to be taking this stance.  A petition was created on by Elizabeth Beier that generated over 60,000 signatures asking the school to rethink their decision and to remove Richmond from the team.  I can tell you now that there is a better chance of Elvis running for president than that.  It’s simply not going to happen.  Steubenville is…well…Steubenville. People want to protest and rightly so.  They SHOULD.  I am encouraging protests.  Marc Randazza and others have pledged … Continue reading →

Big Red Nation Says Eff You to the World

It was reported today that Ma’Lik Richmond has rejoined the Steubenville High School football lineup. Ma’Lik Richmond, one of two teens convicted in the rape of a 16-year-old girl in Steubenville, was back on the roster at Steubenville Big Red as of Monday morning.Richmond was found delinquent of raping a 16-year-old girl in March 2013, and must register as a Tier II sex offender every 180 days for 20 years.Richmond was released from an Ohio Juvenile Detention Center on January 6, 2014, and in June of this year, the 7th District Court of Appeals upheld his sexual offender classification.    Source I don’t know why I am shocked.  I mean, didn’t we all assume this was going to happen?  Really, why would this school care about what people thought about them or that they look more like rape apologists than … Continue reading →

Less Than Honorable Behavior

There has been a lot of activity coming out of Steubenville lately from  illegal gambling raids to the Bill of Particulars being released in the State’s case against school administrators regarding the alleged cover up to protect Steubenville high school athletes accused of rape.  Last week the Bill of Particulars was filed with the court which accuses Mike McVey, Superintendent of Steubenville City Schools of  wiping computer hard drives, erasing emails and lying to investigators about his knowledge of the allegations against the boys. There have also been allegations of witness  intimidation or harassment raised by both the prosecution and the defense in McVey’s case. McVey has pleaded not guilty to felony counts of tampering with evidence and obstructing justice, and misdemeanor counts of falsification and obstructing official business. Early on McVey claims that he and the principal deferred investigation or … Continue reading →

Cultural Apathy

Last week members of the Steubenville Police Department along with agents from the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation executed the search warrants on 8 locations throughout Jefferson County in what was reported to be raids resulting from an illegal gambling investigation initiated by Steubenville Police and Ohio BCI.  An estimated $1.5 million was seized as a result of the coordinated raids.   What is odd is the lack of response by Jefferson County Prosecutor’s office and the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department with regard to the raids.   Why hasn’t the Jefferson County Prosecutor’s Office and Sheriff’s office congratulated Steubenville PD and BCI on a job well done?  There have been so many other congratulatory butt slaps over the past 2 years when it comes to joint effort investigations and arrests.  Why no congratulatory ticker tape this time?    … Continue reading →

Life is About Changes

The Steubenville trial is quickly approaching and once all is said and done – lives will be changed forever.  Lives have been changed regardless of the outcome.  The lives of every person who tweeted or retweeted the events of that night will forever have those bad decisions to follow them anytime someone Googles their name.  Michael Nodianos’ life changed when he and his friends laughed maniacally over the sexual assault of a young girl.  Many lives have changed, including my own. I was sued for defamation of character for allowing the exchange of ideas and opinions on this blog.  My anonymous commenters lives were changed as well.  I am sure many of them are hesitant about ever voicing an opinion online for fear of becoming a legal target again because in their town you aren’t supposed to talk about it.  … Continue reading →

Debra Copeland School of Bright Promise

Debra Copeland, a physical therapist at the School of Bright Promise in Jefferson County, Ohio was put on paid administrative leave and is facing three charges of child endangerment for abuse that was secretly recorded by an intern.  The intern who worked at the School of Bright Promise secretly recorded the  sessions with Copeland and two special needs children.  The woman who is being identified as BJ told News 9: “Her demeanor, the way she would speak about the children, sometimes I would hear her talk down to kids. It seemed odd to me.” BJ recorded one video (posted below) that shows a child during a 30-minute physical therapy session where she can be seen sitting.   Copeland then comes over and shoves the little girl back to the ground and says, “Get down now. I said down. No.” Copeland … Continue reading →

Third Wintery Weather Rally

I received this in an email the other day and was so touched by it that I wanted to share.  I can tell you that while watching all of the rallies, I have been so incredibly moved by the outpouring of support for Jane Doe, but for all of those wonderfully compassionate and caring people who braved cold weather to let their voices be heard. Third Wintery Weather Rally (Thankful good people like Prinnie were willing to share the truth, hard as it was to hear). Tying my hood a little tighter, as the wind sneaks through to my ears, shuffling my boots to dig deeper into the patch of snow and ice so I don’t slide off the curb where I’m standing to give myself a few extra inches of height…..looking at the crowd of the Guy Fawkes … Continue reading →
