I don't think you have been following. In no way have I been 'comparing' them. I instead have been talking about wider issues of gender relations which led to another item which was in the news being cited as part of the wider context.
When you lump them together to speak about the the "wider issues," that means that you believe that their is some nexus between the two. That is an implicit comparison. If you want to respond, feel free, but I will not respond again. I do not mean to be rude and there is nothing wrong with this conversation, but we are going too far down a tangent that is not interesting to me.
I disagree about there being even an implicit comparison, but I agree that the thread has become uninteresting.
Wow, the three of us have come to an agreement! I'll get the bubbly...
The world can be a beautiful place!
Dan Wetzel has been tweeting about the trial, which started yesterday. Here are some of his tweets from today:
@DanWetzel: In Steubenville, graphic and disturbing text msgs, forensically recovered, have both defendants acknowledging sexual contact with girl.
@DanWetzel: Defendants at times crudely brag about incident. Day after girl confronts Trent Mays directly via txt. Almost unprecedented evidence
@DanWetzel: At one point girl txt'd defendant Trent Mays: "OK, so tell me the truth right now. What the F--- happened last night? And don't lie to me."
@DanWetzel: In txt msgs likely to enflame debate in Steubenville, Trent Mays wrote that "i feel" legendary coach Reno Saccoccia: "took care of it for us. Like he was joking about it so I'm not worried." Some believe power of football team allowed players to run wild for years.
Unbelievable that they are not being tried as adults and would thus be free by the age of 21 even if convicted and given the maximum sentence. This isn't a case of a couple kids having some bad judgment, these guys repeatedly raped an unconscious girl then laughed about it and posted pictures and videos of their actions on various social media sites.
They're popular football players, not poor black kids.
