Steubenville. Wrapping Up.
Well, it's official.
The Blog has misplaced the the link to the video of the comments by the judge in the Steubenville, Ohio rape trial.
The outrageous sympathy shown to the convicted rapists by CNN's commentators and other mainstream media outlets has been thoroughly and properly addressed by now.
If you have not caught up with that, you really need to get yourself better informed.
Google, Bing and YouTube will help you get up to speed with that.
The Blog will not bore you with it here.
Judge Thomas Lipps (Oh please, feel some empathy for the poor child who grew up with that name!) rightly found the two youths who committed the vile acts against a 16-year-old girl guilty.
And indictments are coming for 16 or so "good kids" who stood by and did nothing (except tweet the videos of the acts) rather than step up and protect the young victim.
So, His Honor, Judge Lipps (Fuck! I hate how that name makes my inner adolescent giggle!) did the right thing.
But, when he was done with that, he felt the need to speak further.
And what he said made The PC scratch his bald head.
*Wait! I may have found a link! Sit tight while I check it out. I'll be right back.*
Okay, I'm back.
This is not the link to the actual video, but Slate.com blogger Amanda Hess heard the comments from Judge Lipps that caused The PC's jaw to drop.
Her reaction was exactly the same as mine.
So go read what she has to say and get that is exactly what The Blog wanted to say.
