spell check: my comment should have read.... @Sandra03, thank you for proving my point. You've shown exactly what is going on in the community. Grabbing on to part of or a piece of a instead of the entire facts as you've done in all of your comments. Would you suggest that we go down the path of the hate mongers who are threatening innocent children. Would you threaten the innocent children in the church to put the pressure on the church? We can handle it your way or we can let the law handle the matter legally. Seeing as how I am not privy to the details of the case, I will leave the matter where it belongs, in the hands of the law. I've never been a person who believes in punishing all for what may or may not be the crimes of a few. No more than I agree with a teacher who punishes an entire classroom of children for the misbehavior of one.

@well, lemermaid, if you all took that advice, you'd actually INDEED pressure the church to punish their child abusers, yes. People who do not demand a change of policies from Big Red but blindly support them instead, are a disgrace. The same holds true who do not hold the Church accountable.

@Jlrey65 I am not defending anything or anyone other than my 10 year old son caught in the cross fire. I personally have not seen any evidence that it is not being handled proper now or in the first few days before it was handed to the outside authorities. That's my opinion, just as you have yours I have mine so it is not necessary to name call. I have faith in the justice system. Does it always work? No....but most of the time it does and it's what we have, there is a reason for that. There is a reason that they investigate, there is a reason that people are innocent until proven guilty by a COURT OF LAW. There is a reason why the kid talking on the horrible talk on the video isn't prosecuted for just for talking no matter how horrible what he said was. Ignorance in the law is why people think authorities should just go out with a lasso and round up all who were at the parties, DEFINATLY all who played on the football team,bring in anyone who said the word rape.

@Sandra03, if we all take your advise, than many would have to stop attending church due to cases of child molestation. We'd all have to stop saying that we are Americans due to the history of slavery. No one could ever have a drink due to alcohol related auto accidents. No one should ever get married due to many who physically abuse their spouse. Do you see where I'm going with this? Being a part of and proud of Steubenville City Schools and the programs provided by our school system in no way promotes rape. Our school system does so much for the good of the county as a whole and regardless of how disturbing this alleged rape case is, we will not throw our innocent children out to the crazy group of vigilantes that want blood from anyone, including innocent children.

@Sandra03 Steub. isn't the only school with "rape" alligations. Nobody has yet been convicted by a judge and jury, it's certainly not my place to convict anyone. For this reason I am not going back and forth with what you seem to know as fact and since I wasn't there have no idea what happened. Nodi's video was horrible, I agree 100% and if you remember right, they thought he committed the crime which was why there was no conflict with the prosecutor. This I know as fact so I will state that. If you trust the New York Times, where it all began I repect your decision. My opinion is that the New York Times took what was being said in the social media, as did other media outlets and reported on it. Since (as everyone has hung the authorities for) they did not yet report anything to the public yet, I am not confident that the story was fact. AGAIN...the rally was not for the victim, it was for the innocent CHILDREN like my 10 year old son being victimized.

@lemermaid: I'll reiterate it. Wearing Big Red T-shirs at the rally = spitting in the face of the victim. But, hey, everyone is free to chose what to rally for or against. Just don't be surprised, if people call you out on it.

@maddie: if you keep your kid in such a team, a take it you don't mind having it immerse in rape culture. No I was't there, but a camera was, remember? The facts are from Nodiano's video (one of the witnesses there says something to the avail that he doesn't care about the rape, the other witness records the video because Nodi is SO HILARIOUS), from witnesses' sworn statements. Yeah and the coaches' behaviour was famously reported in the New York Times, a trustworthy news source in my view. As for the twitter screen-shots of a certain ex-boyfriend. He famously apologized for them and never denied them. And, we have proof that none of the athletes was seriously benched, as they still participate in contests, for the whole world to see. So there. Wearing Big Red T-shirts at that ralley was a spit in the face of the victim, no matter how you try to spin it.

@Sandra03..This was a wonderful event for children that are being victimized by everyday ignorance. The children that this event was held for have no more to do with the case than you or I. I will say it again...This was a wonderful event for children that are being victimized by everyday ignorance. The children that this event was held for have no more to do with the case than any of you. This event was not for the boys or girl involved. This was about the children who were not involved in any way, shape or form. This was an event for children who are being terrorized by people who are threatening to attempt murder by shooting or bombing our schools with innocent children inside. Again I will say, no one on this comment page is privy to the details of this case so stop gossiping or stating things as if it were fact.

@sosilly2345 I am sorry you feel that way. My 10 year old is a "BIG RED" and proud of his school (Wells) Wearing our "BIG RED" shirts doesn't support RAPE, it supports our children...children who were not one of the ones in the light. Again, I haven't seen facts, not reports but facts that any of what you mention happened. If you have or were there I suggest you contact the OUTSIDE authorities investigating. If you don't suport our kids that are innocent, don't come to the rallys. Nobody says you can't suport the innocent and stand on the court house steps to suport Jane Doe, it's not one or the other. What these boys did was not on school property, not during school hours not even when school was in session. Nobody was proven guilty yet, why do you think it's the school's responsibility to judge them?

@ maddie: I am not sure that sporting BIG RED T-shirts is a particularly good way to stand up for the victim, given that BIG RED coaches slandered her, impeded the investigation and saw no reason for any solid disciplinary measures against their precious social-media savy athletes. Or does one have to wear BIG RED fan accessories, in order to hang out in Steubenville at a park without a worry?

@ Sandra03 The rally was to get the children together to hang out at the park and have fun together without a worry. The rally was a group of parents, myself included to get together with other parents of school children (BTW mine is 10) who had nothing to do with the crime and are afraid to go to school, some are families (like mine) who who were attached for no reason at all because we don't even have HS kids or live in Steubenville. It was to support Jane Doe and AT THE SAME TIME stand up for the innocent kids being affected. Does that answer your question?

If these people really wanted to do something for the kids. They would have been damanding the coach the school borad and the assclown police officer to step down and await charrges.

@lemermaid - it is ridiculous to argue that it takes a criminal conviction so that the school cna take disciplinary measures - the clear evidence (despite the coaches' best efforts to not have it leak out) of outrageous misaconduct by Big Red athletes should be way enough. As it is now, the coaches and school, by not taking disciplinary measures against those playsers, foster rape culture. There won't be healing and a feeling of savety for the kids in the community, until the school clearly embraces a zero tolerance policy, regarding that type of grocely disrepsectful and unethic behaviour, irrespective of athletic achievementts.

Wheres the support for the girl who was RAPED. Some of you are forgetting why attention is being called to the city of steubenville. This is by no means an isolated incident. Other girls haved been raped and the town has a reputation for the mistreatment and victimization of women. We are not demonizing the entire town but declaring war on your culture of violence folks. We want to help but you push us out and issue threats and excuses fresh from the BS factory. Our patience is waning. If you will not do something someone will of that you should be aware. So stop crying in your dirty beer beard Mr. Writer man and raise your kids so the government doesnt have to.

This was a wonderful event for children that are being victimized by everyday ignorance. The children that this event was held for have no more to do with the case than any of you. Stop with the gossip and let the law handle the matter. Vilgilante justice is a reflection of the ignorance that comes from people who have decided to try a case without being privy to the details. Most of you are doing nothing but gossiping and spreading misleading or flat out lies. If this is you, my advise to you is be careful not to fall in love with lies.

Portection of our kids - I am all for it. I want to protect my kids. Always. If I had kids in high school, I'd want to protect them from a clique of misogynist high-school boys who think, girls are there to be abused. If I had a teen-age daughter, I wouldn't want her around a group of boys who glorify rape. I woul do everything in my power to have them removed or at the very least rigorously controlled. If I had a son in high school, I wouldn't want him in a sports team with peers who glorify rape, I'd take him out of the team if those pervs are not benched. That's what I'd do to protect my school aged kids. Say again, what exactly was that rally about?

Here is a good site you may want to check out for FACTS....actual DOCUMENTS not what the newspaper prints or the social media says... *******stranahaninexile.wordpress**** Or check steubenvillefacts.squarespace****/ The timeline is spelled out. Are you saying all the outside investigation is a cover up? If so you need to go to Columbus and tear up their town. This case was turned over early on so I don't understand where or when all the "corruption" took place? Just saying....
