I watched the “Nodi Wylin About a Dead Girl” video today and it took nearly an hour to finish listening to it. It was a very painful 12 minutes 29 seconds. The content of the video was just THAT horrible. Almost two months ago when I first started writing about the Steubenville case, I detailed how shocked and upset I was at the tweets that I discovered. Reading those tweets was a walk in the park compared to actually hearing the filth roll off of another human being’s tongue about the events of that night. I cannot imagine if Nodi were my son or my brother, but I can feel compassion and sorrow for his family — unlike the lack of emotion he showed for the victim. I cannot imagine the humiliation and shame that his actions have brought upon his family – who are also innocent victims. They did not ask for this shame. Many lives were forever changed that night by the actions of all of those involved.
I think what most find disturbing is the lack of empathy and compassion from so many of those who witnessed the brutality. What kind of person stands by and watches gleefully as another is violated and publicly humiliated? There are so many questions and it is my hope, and has always been my motivation that those questions somehow be answered.
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.
Lafayette, LA – Detectives with the Lafayette Police Department continue to search for clues which would assist them in locating Michaela “Mickey” Shunick. Shunick went missing after leaving a friend’s residence in the 100 block of Ryan Street at approximately 2:00 am on Saturday, May 19, 2012. She was wearing a pastel, multi-colored striped shirt, light wash skinny jeans and grey shoes. Shunick departed the residence on a black Schwinn bicycle with gold handle bar grips and wearing a brown leather backpack purse. It is believed that she was going to her residence near the intersection of Ambassador Caffery Parkway and Congress Street. Shunick is described as a white female, blonde hair, 5’1″ tall and 115 pounds.
Judge William Adams has issued a statement about why he beat the crap out of his daughter with a belt, and says it’s not as bad as it looks. I beg to differ. That beating was nothing more than child abuse and it WAS a vicious beating, and while the daughter, Hillary says that her mother was forced or brainwashed into assisting him, I’m not buying it. She TOLD on her daughter. Any abused woman that I know (and I have known a few) will NOT TELL their husband that the children have behaved badly because they fear that the children will be beaten. Aunt Crazy never told Ike when the boys were bad because she KNEW that he would savagely beat them when he found out. I don’t believe that the former Mrs. Adams didn’t enjoy lashing her child. She came back into the room just to give it to her like a “grown woman”.
Judge Adams obviously enjoyed the beating as well, as he told her that he was going to beat her into submission. Really? Who speaks like this other than an abuser? A lot has been said about Hillary releasing the video and while no one will probably know her real reasons for doing so, the bottom line is that the dirty secret of the family has come to light. Judge Williams will not be charged with the brutal assault as the five-year statute of limitations has expired. However, his karma is that the world is seeing Judge William Adams and his wife for what they are – CHILD ABUSERS and rotten people.
I cannot take credit for finding this lovely. Nope. PQ from the BH forum found her and I have experienced much laughter from viewing this ponytailed train wreck! These people give crazy a whole new meaning! I watched their videos and “Speaker Polley’s” singing is to die for (literally…dogs for miles around were dropping like flies LOL).
I decided to take a peek at their website so that I can truly appreciate Speaker Polley’s message (she really calls herself Speaker Polley). This is what schizophrenia looks like. Speaker Polley fancies herself an artist, and I’m no art connoisseur nor art expert, but the object called “The Orb Of Enlightenment” seen here certainly looks like something that requires batteries. Lemons and oranges are fighting with the square people here.
Who are these people? Gerald Polley is running for President – yes, of the United States even. That’s right. God told him to run…again. His campaign in 2008 ended with the resignation of Jesus H. Christ.
