Where is the media outrage on this

WTF is all I have to say

Where is Jessie Jackson, where is Obama, where is the press. This is the most horrible thing I have seen all day

Yeah exactly. There's a thread on this in OT too. No one cares about making a big deal about things that reinforces stereotypes about anyone that isn't white.

It's ok, find comfort in knowing a group of nazis in prison will rape them for the rest of their lives.

I've seen plenty of news on this, front page MSM, I don't see it being underplayed at all.

As for those punks responsible, they better hope for the death penalty.

In the article it mentions her other son dying in Gloucester county, NJ. That's where I live and I remember something about that from a couple years ago. That's so unfortunate for her. On a side note, and I'm just being honest, I was guessing he was black.

There was plenty of outrage from fanatics about this incredibly horrific crime the first time it was posted. I've also seen plenty of media coverage on it. Some of you guys that complain about "unfairness" much should actually do something about it instead of complaining about it behind your keyboards.

If I do something about it (speak out on the issue,) it would be considered a hate crime at worst and labeled a bigot at least. Im not interested in the outrage of E46 fanatics. Where is Obama, saying that if he had a kid they would look like this kid. Where is Jackson and Sharpton? Crickets huh? Ban AR15s....think of the children....oh wait...

Why don't you write Jackson etc and ask them why don't speak out on crimes that don't cater to their interest. Are you suggesting the POTUS speak about every terrible crime in this country? The Martin/Zimm case "appeared" to have foul play, thus creating controversy! This case is open and shut... Criminals caught and hopefully prosecuted to the fullest extent. What more do you want? The justice system will hopefully work for this crime...
Edit: I can see your bitching being legitimate if the criminals were set free, but that's not the case here...

What response exactly do you want? What does OP envision Jesse Jackson would have to say if the races were reversed and the men on trial were white and the baby black? I don't get it.

I think we need to get Candy Crowley on the job. She can snivel and whine about all the lost opportunities that these young boys are going to miss because they are convicted felons and potential convicts.

Apparently that is a bigger story than the loss of a little boy in his stroller or a 16 year old girl being violently raped.

That was ridiculous. I couldn't believe my ears when I heard that.

The reason why Steubenville is a big story is because an entire town tried to sweep a rape under the rug and they almost got away with it.

As tragic (fvcked up is a better word) this story is, it really is just a open and shut case.
