Lesson From Steubenville Trial: How Jock Culture Morphs Into Rape Culture

17 March 2013 | 7:14 pm In Steubenville , Ohio, in a trial featuring all sorts of cringe-inducing, jaw-dropping testimony about everyday teenage behavior, perhaps the most galling aspect was that 17-year-old Trent Mays and 16-year-old Ma’lik Richmond, two high school football players convicted on juvenile charges, and the young people around them did not recognize that the violation of a 16-year-old, very intoxicated … http://www.forbes.com/sites/bobcook/2013/03/17/lesson-from-steubenville-rape-trial-how-jock-culture-morphs-into-rape-culture/

  • What Is It About American Small Town Culture That Causes Such Extreme And Stupid Behavior? Behavior such as the glorification of football teams, the extreme sense of pride, a large sense of isolationism, etc? People seem to be so sick in the head in small towns. What happened in Steubenville —-where a corrupt police department refused to look into a rape case, parents and community members vilifying the raped woman(and defending the rapists), and the entire town treating a silly little High School sports team like demigods.—–what happened there is just the result of a much more widespread systemically cultural problem that exists in many American small towns. Why is such pride, such obsession with sports, such arrogance, so large there? Isn’t this small town pride being taken a little too far?

    Do You Think The Steubenville Highschool Football Players Rapers Deserve More Time In Jail? Later on? I remember when the story first broke up months ago, everyone tried to hush the girls up. They did not want to release the 2 football player’s names because they thought they were under age. During the time, no charges or arrest had been made against the 2. I think the city tried to hush the girl up.

    Later on, she became upset over the whole situation and released their names on twitter. The boys threatened to sue her because they thought she would ruin their football careers.

    The boys got the girl drunk, told people to record them having sex with her, then shared it around.
    Really sick what they did…any type of rape is sick.

    Do you think they will face more time in prison later on?
    @Dee well one is white and the other is black.

    Did The Steubenville Rapists Get Off Easy? Two football “stars” convicted of raping a drunk 16 yr old are now in prison. One apologized for taking iPhone pictures (but not for the rape). The only evidence was the iPhone pictures. These got him an extra year behind bars.
    The other’s father (not the rapist son) apologized to the family for their pain (and again not for the rape).
    Should both of them rot in prison until they are 21 as the law allows? If this had been tried in “adult” not “juvenile” court they would have 10 year terms. Now, they only have to serve 1-4 years. They are now “convicted rapists” and must register as sex offenders for life. Is this enough punishment?

    If A Minor Is Raped While She Is Drunk…? If a minor is raped while she is drunk and the rapists are charged, will the girl still be punished (by law) for underage drinking? I know the focus of the case is the rape, but how likely is it for the cops to be like “hey, by the way, you’re not supposed to be drinking when you’re 16 so we’re going to charge you for that”

    I’m reading this case: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/highschool–steubenville-suspects–text-messages-paint-disturbing-picture-of-night-of-alleged-rape–according-to-prosecutors-053236470.html
    I am in no way trying to justify the rape- no one deserves it no matter what they do. I’m just asking if she can still be charged with that. Like, if police came to the party and saw her drunk, rape or not, they’d probably punish her. Well, in this case, the law enforcements know she was drunk- will they still charge her, regardless of the situation?

    In Stuebenville Rape Case Do You Think It’s Right That They’re Charged As Juveniles Instead Of Adults? The alleged rapists are 16 and 17. The alleged victim is 16. Do you think they should be tried as juveniles for a rape case?

    @Kim.

    The judge will will have a verdict by Saturday so it shouldn’t be too long now.
    Update:

    The judge already rendered his verdict of “guilty” and they will both be in juvenile jail until age 21.

      “In Stuebenville rape case do you think it’s right that they’re charged as juveniles instead of adults? The alleged rapists are 16 and 17. The alleged victim is 16. Do you think they should be tried as juveniles for a rape case?”

      To be honest, I think that the only reason it’s an issue…is because the alleged perpetrators are boys. I mean I can reference a case where a 16 year old girl repeatedly raped a 12 year old boy she was babysitting, and she got off with a fine…and later, after she gave birth to a child through the rape, she also got to keep custody and successfully sued the boy for child support!!! No one apparently pressed to have her treated as an adult!

      So do I think it’s right that these boys are charged as juveniles? With my perspective on the matter, yes…I do believe it’s right to charge them as juveniles. They’re under 18…so they are in fact juveniles…and unlike with the case I referenced of the girl raping the boy, if these boys are found guilty, I’ve no doubt that they’ll serve some jail time!
