Shocking video evidence of rape admissions and allegations of a wide cover up enterprise by influential adults in Steubenville, Ohio are shooting up the major media beanstalk at present.
Video files reportedly obtained by vigilante hacker(s) KnightSec were provided to the LocalLeaks blog who set up an investigative reporting operation urging additional victims or witnesses to feel secure in coming forward.They went live with the story here on Jan. 1. Warning, some of the video admissions might be hard to stomach for the sensitive.
The report includes fantastic accounts of an array of related crimes, seemingly based on hearsay accounts from students at Big Red High School. These include date rape drug procurement, local bookmaking, drug and protection rings and possible witness intimidation.
But you can hear first hand confirmations of knowledge of rape, on tape, made by alleged participants that have not been charged.
