Anonymous – You’ve done a good thing!

I have read a few stories about Anonymous over the past few years. I didn’t really have much of an opinion about the group and what they were doing. Because really, it had no effect on my life.

But I have to say, after reading a story on the Daily Mail about a girl who was repeatedly raped as she was dragged, unconscious, from party to party, only to have her attackers laughing about it on video and via Twitter, I applaud their latest efforts.

According to the Daily Mail, we may have another coverup going on. You see, the guys who were (allegedly – I’ve got to cover my legal assets) raping her were members of the local football team and were considered superstars of their small Ohio town. The cover-up goes as far as law enforcement and high school officials.

All to protect their precious football empire.

From the Daily Mail:

On their website, called Local Leaks: The Steubenville Files, they said that they took up the cause since ‘a town rife with corruption, cronyism, illegal gambling and fixated upon their star high school football team (a major economic revenue engine) were prepared to orchestrate a major cover-up in order to sweep the entire affair under the rug.’

The group ‘began unraveling this conspiracy of silence designed to protect a group of these high school football players who had become well known to their fellow students as “The Rape Crew”.’

They go on to name and discredit a number of people involved in the case- from the sheriff involved in the investigation to the prosecuting attorney- using their tech skills to hack into individuals email accounts and publish damaging allegations. In the case of a prominent football team supporter, the group published inappropriate and pornographic photos found in his email account.

The Local Leaks site has become somewhat of a collection of the various Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter posts made by students who were either present at the parties where the girl was being dragged around by the two players by her ankles and wrists.

That picture was originally screen-grabbed by Alexandria Goddard, a crime blogger who used to live in Steubenville. She took it from the Instagram account of a local high school student who later tried to sue her for defamation because she posted the photo on the web.

His suit was dismissed and the teenage boy publicly apologized to the victim and her family, whose names are not being reported because she is a minor and an alleged sexual assault victim.

A horrifying online trail of the August 11 incident continues to emerge, and one of the latest discoveries was that of a video of a group of high school students talking about- even laughing- about the alleged rape which seems to be happening at the time the video was shot.

Throughout the video, which is just over 12 minutes long, there are numerous references to a ‘dead girl’ who is described as being raped and urinated on.

The boy who talks the most in the video has been identified as Michael Nodianos, a former Steubenville student and baseball player who cannot contain his laughter as he describes the 16-year-old victim, seemingly in another room of the house, being raped.

‘She is so raped right now,’ he says at one point in the video.
