Steubenville High School "Rape Crew" makes fun of their victim in horrible leaked tape (VIDEO)
In another disturbing twist to an already horrifying case, Anonymous has just leaked a video of several high school athletes from Steubenville, Ohio laughing and making fun of a drunk and unconscious 16-year-old who was raped last August.
The horrific 12-minute video was posted by Knight Sec, a hacktivist group that has called out the small football town for allegedly covering up the crimes in order to protect their beloved athletes. In the clip, the teens (who are all obviously under the influence of drugs or alcohol) make chilling jokes about what happened that night, referring to the victim as "deader than" Trayvon Martin and OJ Simpson's wife. The speaker, identified by some as former Steubenville High School baseball player Michael Nodianos, also cracks himself up by making more atrocious remarks like, "She is so raped" and, "They raped her quicker than Mike Tyson!"
The leaked video has once again brought a glaring spotlight to the town and the case which is still being pieced together months later--in large part, because few witnesses have been willing to step forward and name the athletes who allegedly assaulted, photographed, and hauled the underage girl from party to party to party.
Though two football players, Trent Mays and Ma'lik Richmond, have since been charged with rape and kidnapping, Anonymous insists that there are more guilty parties and had previously threatened to expose those who weren't charged if they didn't issue a public apology by January 1.
Well, it looks like they are sticking to their word as this video was released one day past the deadline on January 2! And let me just say, I don't think I've ever been as disgusted and angered in my entire life as I feel now after watching this video. It's enraging to think that these little entitled a-holes not only committed such a horrific crime, but felt absolutely zero remorse after…and that most of them have, up until now, essentially gotten away with it. I'm horrified to know I even share a planet with these people, let alone that they are living their life right now as if they haven't done anything wrong.

Steubenville police, for their part, released a statement Wednesday, saying that the video and all evidence has been turned over to Ohio Attorney Generals and that "it's always been the policy of the Steubenville Police Department not to make comments on details of a case prior to it going to trial."
I'm obviously not a police officer and I know the case is still pending, but I can't believe more action hasn't been taken against these individuals, especially considering there is now a recorded videotape of these guys mocking the woman they just assaulted horrifically. They deserve not only to be punished, but to be publically shamed just like that poor, innocent girl was. The idea that anyone, including parents and authorities, is covering their crimes just because they're athletes is sickening and I just hope that when it comes time, justice is actually served.
