Published: Monday 7 January 2013
The young men chronicled their actions on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter, but after many in the town of Steubenville, including the high school football coach, rallied to the players’ defense, the hacker group “Anonymous” vowed to release the accused players’ personal information unless an apology was made.

We turn to Steubenville, Ohio, where members of a high school football team allegedly raped an underage girl and possibly urinated on her unconscious body over the course of an evening of partying in late August. The young men chronicled their actions on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. But after many in the town of Steubenville, including the high school football coach, rallied to the players' defense, the hacker group "Anonymous" vowed to release the accused players' personal information unless an apology was made. Anonymous has since released a video showing a male Steubenville high schooler joking about the alleged victim. We're joined by three guests: Monika Johnson Hostler, president of the National Alliance to End Sexual Violence; Kristen Gwynne, an associate editor at Alternet; and "X", a member of the hacktivist group Anonymous using a pseudonym.

ABOUT Amy Goodman

This is not about football,

This is not about football, this is about some truly sickening behavior which is tolerated, excused, and even praised in certain parts of the corruption ridden toilet called the United States.
Every day I seem to be finding more reasons to detest the cowardly, violent culture of that twisted place which is spiralling into a caricature of the nation it once was.

The only uniqueness of this

The only uniqueness of this incident in regard to the holy priests of footballdom is that they got caught. Mostly due to their own grandiosity which no doubt was reinforced by their infantile coaches and alcohol soaked community.
One thing for sure, Amy Goodman really stretches it a time or two in referring to those pubescent ignoramouses as "young men". Young or old, 'Men' do not do such things. In fact, had there been any 'men' present, those pervs would have gotten the shit kicked out of them that night.

Maybe these little shits

Maybe these little shits should be strung up from a tree upside down and given some of their own "medicine."

7 Compelling Reasons Why You Should Support NationofChange

Our readers often tell us why they’ve decided to step up and become supporters. Here are some of the top reasons people are giving.

1. You’re keeping independent journalism alive
The corporate owned media has proven that it can’t be trusted. In a media landscape wrought with spin and corruption, NationofChange stands in very scarce company.

2. You’re sticking it to the rich, powerful, and corrupt
When you have money in this country you can get away with damn near anything, and they do. NationofChange isn’t afraid to expose these criminals no matter how powerful they are.

3. Your donation is 100% tax-deductible
NationofChange is a 501(c)3 charity. People tend to assume that many other organizations are (most nonprofits are NOT) but it’s that 501(c)3 status is a bit more rare than you think.
