Want a lesser rape charge? Become a football player.

The attackers involved in the Steubenville, Ohio rape case have been tried and charged. Both Ma’lik Richmond and Trent Mays were found guilty of raping a intoxicated 16 year old girl; both given a year for the rape and Mays given an extra year for having taken a picture of the girl, lying naked and unconscious on the floor. (use of minor in nudity related material). Oh and the time they spent in custody counts towards their sentence. (You know they’re not ever going to be in there for the full two years….)

On top of that, the story of this trial was covered by CNN who, instead of talking about the impact on the victim and disgusting violence and disregard the rapists had, talked about how “emotional” the trial was and how sad it was that these “star football players”/”good students” had such promising futures and watched as their lives “fell apart”.

THANK YOU FOR FOCUSING ON THE REAL VICTIMS CNN. It’s not like they took advantage of a drunken, unconscious minor, raped her, urinated on her, took photos and live-tweeted the entire thing.

If that wasn’t enough, CNN had a legal counsel of some sort go on to say the most upsetting thing about this was that the boys were registered as sex offenders….

Oh no. The sex offenders have to get the reputation of being sex offenders. How fucking tragic.
