Seriously, every single one of these kids laughing in this video needs some serious discipline. Jump to 4:20 in the video for the most f-ed up comments.
Here's another link for some context - 16yo girl was gang-raped by Steubenville High football players.
Anonymous launched an attack on Ohio’s Steubenville High School football players accused of gang raping a 16-year-old girl who was unconscious during a night of parties.
KnightSec, an arm of the hacker collective that specifically targets rapists, demanded a public apology be issued to the young woman and warned that it would release personal information of Big Red football players and staff who have defended the accused young men. No apology was issued by the hackers’ deadline of Jan. 1. That day, a video was leaked of a teenage boy — a former Steubenville High baseball team member — captured cruelly joking about the sexual assault.
“She is so raped,” he laughs, continuing in offensive tirade including the lines, “They raped her quicker than Mike Tyson!” and “they raped her more than the Duke lacrosse team!”, grossly quipping that the unconscious girl was “deader than Trayvon Martin,” even as other voices captured in the video interject, saying “That’s not cool bro… That’s like rape. It is rape. They raped her.” Other teens in the video laugh along.
Police released a statement following the video’s release stating that they were already aware of the footage and had interviewed the young man who made the video, but did not comment further. - Salon.Com
CINCINNATI -- A rape case in Steubenville, Ohio, has split this city, drawn international attention, become a social media sensation, and this week drew a crowd of protesters in Guy Fawkes masks.

I hope the kid featured in this video gets his name and face plastered all over national media outlets. Good lord, what a scumbag.
I'm about to watch the video
That kid along with the rest of them laughing need a severe azz beating
It's like...I've encountered some f-ed up people in my life, but how casual this kid is about a girl getting gang-raped...wow. Seriously sociopathic.
OSU fans - has Najee Murray commented on this at all? Kid just came out of Steubenville last year, he probably played with the kids accused of rape.
From what I know, no one has made a statement on it.
We actually have a thread about this on the home board.... everyone is pretty disgusted..
I'm not sure how these kids think this is funny.... I know we all do dumb things when we are kids, but jesus... this goes to a whole nother level

Seriously, the dumb stuff I did was mostly constrained to driving without a license or something, not gang rape. And it's not even like this video is a kid nervously trying to cope with a strange new situation - it's 10 minutes of rape and death jokes at the expense of the poor girl.
I put myself in the position of that girl's father. I am not sure I could wait for authorities to do an "investigation".
When I saw this on CNN, news was talking abt parents of players taking up/protecting the players from this. I cannot imagine parents doing such a thing, if the evidence presented thus far is true: this was indeed a gang rape from football players.
If people are trying to cover this up, I hope they ALL get what is coming to them.
Kids deserve to get their ass beat... That is just ridiculous.. How is that funny.
The kid is no longer part of Ohio State. He was kicked out this past week and I'm appalled at this. Sports should never come before victims and no one person's future in high school should be put ahead of another. It's truly appalling. They need to clean house with the whole city.
Yeah there was a post about this not too long ago and it hasn't gotten any less disgusting.
That one kid is just a poor excuse of a person. Hope he runs into traffic.
Does it honestly surprise you?
I think the human race is on the decline. I think people are generally disgusting individuals.
Yes, and they may have peed on her too.
It was much more than this. It was much worse. The story I saw was that she broke up with a guy, and that guy set her up to get raped. It may involve the date rape drug too.
People were always bad it's just that now, idiots choose to show the world just how scummy they are via the internet. Not surprising...
Normally, I'd be a bit skeptical too, but after watching the video, even the kids there are acknowledging that multiple guys were just straight-up raping her.
This was taken from our boards multi page thread on this. This needs to be completely uncovered.
And now we have good details. http://localleaks.blogs.ru/ has been updated to include detailed info on what really happened that night. Details from many people including portions that had to include info from the victim, herself, as her and her family and friends have thanked KnightSec for what they've done.
from localleaks (new info):
Cody Saltsman sent many messages to people stating that “nobody breaks up with Cody Saltsman, Ill ruin that bitch”. This was a month before the rape. A few weeks later, Saltsman’s best friend – Trent Mays started texting the victim asking her for a date and pretending to like her and telling her over and over that everyone likes her and not to worry about Cody. He finally convinced her to let him meet her at her friends house and she remembers nothing past that point. A close personal friend of the victim received pics from her at 9:30 pm, and she was smiling and happy and with her group of girlfriends. An hour later she was unconscious and being viciously gang raped.
Mark Cole: Mark is one of Cody Saltsman’s best friends. Together with Saltsman, they are the ones who hatched the plot to lure the victim to the parties where she was viciously assaulted. Mark agreed to convince his girlfriend Makenzie Santoro to lure the victim to these parties because she was friends with the victim. Make no mistake, their intent was to do her harm as revenge for the victim having broken up with Saltsman. It is unlikely that Cole committed any of the multiple rapes on the victim, as both he and Santoro (his girlfriend) were together through out the entire episode. They are however BOTH guilty of accessory and conspiracy to commit rape and kidnapping.
We have received an extraordinary set of particular leaks from a number of young people in Steubenville who were witness to various parts of this horrendous crime. From this material, we have been able to piece together a timeline of events on that fateful night in August 2012. During this description, we will refer to the victim as “Jane Doe”.
After being convinced, with some amount of coaxing – to attend the parties that night with the “Rape Crew” by by Mark Cole’s girlfriend Santoro, Jane Doe was picked up at volley ball team party she was attending in the early evening of August 11th and transported in a vehicle with Malik, Mays and Cole in it. Jane Doe was administered a “date rape” drug snuck into her drink almost immediately, possibly while still in the vehicle enroute to the nights “festivities”. In any case, she has no memories after being picked up. The first party of the night was at the home of Assistant Coach Rick Cameletti (the apartment), where Michael Nodianos, Charlie Keenan, Cody Saltsman, and Anthony Craig were already engaged in heavy drinking and drug use. At this location Jane Doe was raped multiple times by Richmond and Mays and at least two other assailants from the “Rape Crew”. At that point the “party” went on the move. They first stopped at another Assistant Coach’s home, Coach Belerdine. Belardine didn’t like what he saw, and asked them to leave. Once again, they hit the road with an unconscious Jane Doe in tow. While en route to Mark Cole’s house, Jane was again raped and sodomized in the back seat of a vehicle – and this was video recorded by Charlie Keenan who was in the front seat. Her attackers in the car were Mays and Malik. Once they arrived at Mark Cole’s house Jane Doe was carried to the basement where she was again raped multiple times by multiple attackers, one of which was Michael Nodianos. Finally, having sated themselves and exhausted any further entertainment that Jane Doe could provide for these animals, she was unceremoniously dumped (still unconscious) onto the front lawn of the Cole residence – where at least one member of the “Rape Crew” proceeded to urinate on her.
WTF. If that was my sister/daugher hell even a friend. I would beat the piss out of every one of those demented clowns. I'd probably kill em all.
Disgusting is the only word to describe this.
Yeah. That is the best word for this. These 'good' kids need to face up to the consequences of their actions. Hopefully the video will make it so that all those that were responsible won't get away.
I still can't believe all the people that video the crimes they are committing. Sure am glad they are stupid though.
PS - I would refrain from searching for the assault videos. Seems to me that it could be considered child porn by some authorities.

This POS is still on Twitter and says he wasn't home when it happened and he had nothing to do with it..

They had a group of guys known as "the rape crew". I wouldn't be surprised if the gf new they were going to rape her. I'll give you the heavy drug use point. People talk in third person all the time.
The friend's GF most definitely committed a crime.
She knowingly invited a girl to come get drugged and raped.
At least there was someone in that video that said it was rape, it was wrong and that he was going to kick Maliik's ass.
