#Steubenville Rapist To Appeal Because "His Brain Isn't Fully Developed"
Well, a couple of comments. First, note that the Steubenville rapists were tried as juveniles. Children much younger than 16 are tried as adults (see: Jordan Brown) and incarcerated for life without the possibility of parole (see: Lionel Tate). I would say that the actions of the aforementioned cases demonstrate they didn’t have “fully developed brains, yet they were held accountable for their actions.
The Steubenville rapists made bad choices, harmed their victim, dragged her “corpse-like” body from location to location, and made electronic recordings and references to these actions.
It shows quite a bit of brain development, if you ask me - and all of it, STUPID.
Football is not a religion. Rape is not a sport. Misogynists can fuck off.
Female Fox Anchor Walks off Fox & Friends after Co-Host's Sexist Joke | Think Progress
Thursday morning, Steve Doocy interviewed members of the U.S. Navy Band about the band’s recent inclusion of women. Reacting to the segment, Brian Kilmeade remarked, “Women are everywhere. We’re letting them play golf and tennis now. It’s out of control.” Visibly upset, Gretchen Carlson, the only female host, walked off of the set. “You read the headlines. Since men are so great. Take them [women] away,” she said. Kilmeade responded, “All right. Finally.” Then, as she walked further off of the set, Kilmeade jeered, “Leaving an all male crew” and added “she needed a shower.”
I just read the whole CLGC memo offering to sell the demise of OWS; not for its logic, but for its positive effect on changing the death grip Wall Street has on this country.
I think CLGC needs some love and attention and benevolent, thoughtful, compassionate re-education. Because we love them with all our patchouli hearts. No, really.
