Alexandria Goddard blogged about the Steubenville rape case. I have no problem with that. My problem is she allowed others to post extremely threatening comments about a minor on her blog. Some of those comments were graphic and very uncalled for. Then we later find out the kid being attacked on her blog wasn’t involved with the rape. Did he know about it? I cannot answer that; I was not there.
Next comes the lawsuit by the child’s parents for the comments on the blog. Then in jumps others screaming Prinnie was being sued for her right to Freedom Of Speech, which was not even close to why she was being sued. She was being sued for allowing the comments to be posted. The kid in question was a MINOR. How would any of you parents feel if this was your child being bashed on social media? Several comments suggested that Cody have his ass kicked, among other much more nasty things I refuse to repeat here. If I would allow death threats like that on this blog I would be called a bully, among other things. But it is ok for them to talk about a minor the way they did? Because of the bully crew every piece of personal info on that child was posted, including his picture, parents names, address, phone number, even a picture of the house he lived in with his parents. Really??
The ones who went around screaming Prinnie is being sued for her right to Freedom Of Speech were the very same people who left those mean comments. No wonder they didn’t want the lawsuit to continue; their identities would have been revealed and it would have shown the world their true colors. Most of the people who left those comments have children of their own. So it is ok for them to abuse someone else’s child as long as no one knows who they are? Hell no!
Enter the fake Anon accounts. They took it upon themselves to post personal information on people that had not even been charged in the case. Then all hell broke lose. The bully crew then thought they were all that and the fake Anon accounts were used to scare and try to intimidate others from voicing their opinions. Some of us refused to back down. I am sure you have read what has been done to and said about those of us who fought back. Murt suffered more wrath than others. They threatened to dox him, hack his computer, hack his emails, tried to get him listed as a pedophile, threatened to go to the police AGAIN and accuse him of kidnapping/killing the Duckett child. Why? To cover up the truth.
Enter the video published by KY. Was that video recording one of the dumbest things those kids could have done? ABSOLUTELY! Does making a dumb video give just cause to be harassed and stalked by supposed adults? NO! They are still minors no matter what anyone thought of that video. The only thing that video did was show how stupid teenagers can be when in the company of their friends and possibly under the influence.
Enter the comment that Jane Doe was urinated on. I still have not figured out where that came from.
Enter the picture of Jane Doe being carried by 2 boys. As far I have know she was not carried like that from party to party. There is also speculation that is not her in that photo. Then somehow the story of her being locked in the trunk of a car and driven from party to party came into play. Later it was found to be not true. But that didn’t stop the bully crew from repeating it over and over again until they were blue in the face. Reminds me of the saying “thou doth protest too much”.
Now to the biggest thing that upset me. The entire bully crew tweeted, blogged etc about who THEY thought should be arrested, charged, fired, kicked out of school, etc. Even after the sheriff spoke at the rally saying evidence, such as the video, was already in the hands of the authorities and it was determined those kids were not involved. That still didn’t stop the bully crew, they kept going on and on about what THEY thought should be done and to whom. What gives them the right to play judge and jury to these people?
Some of you have questioned why I blamed Prinnie for the actions of the rest of the bully crew. Simple; Prinnie is the one who wrote the articles, she is the one who allowed the horrific comments to be posted. When all the accusations starting flying (i.e the video, the picture, the urine rumor) she never once said “let’s wait and see where the evidence leads”. No, she engaged and allowed the crew to keep spewing their lies regarding a situation they knew very little about. Why do I believe she did that? To gain an audience she has been so desperately seeking for many many years.
The bully crew has also attacked people on twitter that are residents of Steubenville, employed by the school, or a parent of a child who attends SHS. What gives them the right to do that? Once some of the locals started fighting back the bully crew found out who was behind certain twitter accounts and exposed personal information about them. And that is the right thing to do?
Then Holly, who was involved with posting Cody’s personal info and the name of Jane Doe, tweets a picture of Jane Doe passed out on a floor (looked like a kitchen). What gave her the right to post that picture? This girl is a MINOR and a VICTIM! Holly is the same person who blew a fit saying her GROWN kids are off limits from being talked about. Wait a minute… She can attack minors but her ADULT children are not to be talked about? Hello hypocrite! You keep saying “my kids are off limits, my kids are off limits” yet you attack other people’s MINOR children. Unreal!
Now Prinnie wants to travel to and fro to talk about Freedom Of Speech? She started all this drama for Steubenville by her actions, or lack thereof. Once again it goes back to the attention as a “writer” she has craved for many years. She does not care what problems she has caused for anyone, as long as she gets noticed. She is not the first one to write about this case, nor will she be the last. It was the lies that her and her ‘friends’ added to the story that attracted the attention, so of course she went along with it.
I still can’t fathom why people support Prinnie, especially after everything that has come to light about her lies to get attention. I too want justice for Jane Doe, but I want to see it done legally, not how others think it should be done.
I was asked what bringing up Prinnie’s background is going to prove. First of all, I am not the one looking for the information. There are several Steubenville locals who are interested in this, and have the means to acquire the info. They are fed up with the actions of the bully crew, to say the least. Since Prinnie is the one who wrote the blog that brought out the rest of the crew, and was once a local of that area, she is the one everyone is looking at. The information I have blogged about has been sent to me from people who claim to be from Steubenville. In some of the emails they have stated they wish the drama would just stop; give the local authorities a chance do their job. They have asked me to show what kind of person is behind all the drama. Some have even said Alex thinks this is her way of washing away all the horrible things she has done over the past several years, and continues to do. I feel the people of Steubenville have the right to be heard, therefore I posted the info that was sent to me by them.
If you are upset with my thinking, so be it. I believe everyone has the right to be heard and I am happy to be the voice who defends the innocent.
