I am shocked (even though I guess I should have expected this kind of protectionism from the athletics community) that the West Virginia U.S. Attorney William J. IhlenfeldÂ is going to teach athletes to hide their rapes by not posting the evidence online.
God forbid that you teach these kids (and young adults) not to rape! You really want to just teach them to be careful about their sexual assaults?
What is the message that you are sending Mr.Â Ihlenfeld? I suppose that this is all the fault of the victims and witnesses to the respective crimes? They were asking for it or were egging it on? You want us to think that these are just good boys that are getting wrapped up in the heat of the moment?
No! This is not the society that we want to live in. If you want to avoid prosecution and being dragged through the mud but the people and the media… don’t rape women (or men), treat them with respect, accept a “no” when it is given. Accept that once they are passed out, they are no longer player in the romance game.
“Project Future” my ass you are PROMOTING rape by teaching young people how to better get away with it you slimy sack of shit!
Do you really think that cell phones and social media caused those football players to rape the drunken (reportedly passed out) 16 year old girl? Hell no! It seems to me to be more of a situation where the jocks once again thought that they could do what they damned well pleased.
“[H]is goal is to teach teens how to avoid getting in trouble with the law by using cell phones, cameras, and social media â€œresponsibly.â€2
I stole the previous line as I could not have summarized it better myself.
We need to take a stand in situations like these. I am not a fan of adding law after law since we already have much of what we need for daily life. Is there something already on the books in this case, or is it something that common sense should already be covering. This ass needs to lose his job over promoting this. It is bad enough that the legal systems screws us on a daily basis, do we need them to teach our youth to rape our kids too (and have a better chance of getting away with it)?
MrÂ Â Ihlenfeld, you are trying to protect the athletes form ruining THEIR lives? How about protecting them from Â not ruining the lives of others simply because they are unable to keep their dicks in their pants. Teach them that if they cannot get a consenting adult to have sex with, then it is perfectly fine to jack (or jill) off like the rest of us.
