CNN took an interesting angle on the Stuebenville rape verdict. They focused on the convicted rapists, and their lost potential. They may have to do a WHOLE YEAR in prison, just because they and some of their buddies drugged and repeatedly raped a 16-year-old girl, then dumped her in a yard and urinated on her. (Had they been tried as adults, they would have gotten 5-12 years, which also isn’t nearly enough, but I digress.)
You’ll notice how little they actually mention the victim. Sigh.
If you want something actually productive to do with your anger after watching CNN’s awful coverage, then sign this petition to educate high school coaches on sexual assault, so they in turn can educate their players. And then please share this so they never report like this again. You can read more thoughtful commentary on the issue here. You can let CNN know how you feel on their Facebook Wall.
