    Steubenville, OH. I know it's the home of Franciscan U., but the big story is the rape story/video involving members of their former state championship high school football team. Charges have been filed against two former football players. Hacktivist group Anonymous has gotten involved. There are allegations of corruption being thrown around. Be careful about rushing to judgment, but this doesn't sound good and may well snowball.

    Like "All The Right Moves" with brutal sexual assault & more coverups. Sickening

    If it comes with a Lea Thompson topless scene (and i'm still in my teens), I'm in.

    The head coach needs to be fired.

    Really, the Big Red athletic program needs to be shut down.

    Hmmm. Columbus. You obviously don't live in the REAL Ohio.

    I think Ohioans would give up the Bengals & Browns before they'd ditch a successful HS program.

    Lea Thompson was pretty hot in that era...but she was no Phoebe Cates

    The (alleged) rapists need to be charged as adults.

    AFAIK, a judge already decided that they will be prosecuted as juveniles.

    The Anonymous site stanger linked to includes all sorts of accusations against the police and prosecutors.

    In one of those links it mentions that one of the hacker groups got in to his email and found some provocative photos. It's not sure if they are/were students but wtf?

    My HS played Big Red my senior year at Steubenville. It's pretty scary when there are 50 year old men wearing HS letter jackets to the games. That and their scoreboard was nicer than some colleges. It had a big red horse that would breathe fire when they scored. Straight out of Friday Night Lights.

    I think that was either an assistant or the guy that runs the website, not the head coach. Your point stands though.

    Yup. The luring the victim across state lines should hopefully get the feds involved.

    The head coach testified on behalf of the accused rapists. He apparently eats breakfast with the sheriff. The coach apparently threatened a New York Times reporter investigating the case.

    From Ohio State's Facebook page;

    "Michael Nodianos is no longer a student at The Ohio State University."

    He is the one in the video saying things like "She was more raped than the hooker with the Duke Lacrosse team"

    I noticed this a couple of days ago...

    Reasonable, but I found this to be problematic:

    Depending on the comment, it could be construed at harassement. And that, I believe, can be considered criminal, specifically when there there laws/regulations (school) about bullying.
