Anonymous Takes On Rape Culture: Leaks Video Of Steubenville Jocks Mocking Rape Victim (VIDEO NSFW)

anonymous-16114-2880x1800

Correction: I mistakenly conflated two different stories in this article. Both involved a 16 year old girl being raped and photographed while unconscious by two local high school sports stars that were being protected by their sports crazed community. However, Savannah Dietrich was raped in August of 2011 and her close call with jail time occurred summer of 2012, shortly before the victim (her identity is currently unknown) of the second crime was raped by Mays and Richmond this past August. Their trial is set for February. The second rape is the subject of the Anonymous posting. Savannah’s legal ordeal is concluded with no jail time for her but only weak justice for her attackers. In my defense, it never crossed my mind that there could be two stories this disturbing yet almost identical in surface details. I’m not sure which is worse: that I mixed up two stories or that the stories existed in the first place for me to confuse. All errors are confined to the first paragraph. The rest of the article is accurate.

 

I guess it doesn’t pay to ignore Anonymous. Back in August, a 16-year-old Savannah Dietrich risked going to jail for tweeting the names of her two rapists. Why did she feel the need to do this? Because her hometown of Steubenville, Ohio is so enamored of its sports that it seemed odd to punish two star lacrosse players for stripping Savannah naked and penetrating her with their fingers while she lay unconscious from too much drinking. And it wasn’t like the court had to take her word for it. They took pictures and videos. Then they put it online. Still, the rapists got a slap on the wrist (community service) and Savannah faced jail time for tweeting their names after a judge told her to keep quiet, essentially ordering the victim to protect the identity of her rapists.

This is rape culture in all its glory. Star athletes are more important than their victims even when there is no doubt they are guilty. Wouldn’t want to ruin their lives or anything over some girl who got drunk and should have known better, right?


Their names are Trent Mays and Ma’lik Richmond, by the way. We here at Addicting Info do not believe rapists have a right to have their identity concealed unless they’ve paid their debt to society and have been deemed to no longer be a threat. These two animals have done neither.

As it turns out, these rapists had friends that thought it was funny as hell their buddies attacked an unconscious girl. And because they shared their friends’ combination of callousness and stupidity, they recorded themselves laughing about it the same night.

And then Anonymous got hold of the footage.

About two weeks ago, Anonymous released a statement that the names and information of everyone involved in not stopping the rape, taking pictures and covering it up would be made public unless they all came forward to publicly apologize to Savannah. They didn’t, so Anonymous made good on its threat.

Now we have a 12 minute video that clearly shows the faces of several Steubenville jocks laughing at how Savannah’s rape. The video mostly centers on Michael Nodianos, a baseball player, as he can barely contain his mirth at Savannah being “so raped.” If there is any justice in the world, this groups of sick bastards, that allegedly call themselves “The Rape Crew,” will have their lives forever ruined by being outed as sadistic creeps.

Here is the video that is sideways for some reason (warning, it’s far worse than I can describe and may contain triggers):
