No one is saying Everyone in Steubenville is bad or Every Big Red student is bad. Wait and see how many people wear Red & Black to support the good people of Steubenville. Big Red is getting a black eye because you have a coach that threatens reporters And sticks up for Rapists and athletes that watched a rape accur and didnt suspend them, along with a school board that condones rape by not doing a dam thing to Anthony Craig, Mark Cole and Evan Westlake who Watched Rape and did nothing. Not to mention assistant coach who bad mouthed the victim to the newspapers, along with another assistant coach Matt Bellardine who had one party at his house, allowing underage drinking. And you want people to feel sorry for this pitiful excuse of leaders at Big Red! You have a piss poor excuse for a prosecutor who waited 2 weeks to recuse herself, when she knew everyone involved when case was brought to police, also tried to talk parents of victim out of filing charges. One wonders how many times has Hanlin done that??? Her son WAS at parties!! Read the dam Tweets!! You have so many people connected to each other--in prosecutors office, SPD, sheriffs office, school board and you actually believe there has not been a cover-up? I would love to see an assembly of SHS students Wearing Masks so they could freely talk about the shit they have to put up with from these select few animals. I’m sure you would find girls and boys bullied by these animals who think they are better than everyone. Your community is getting a black eye that the powers that be brought on themselves!! I know there are ALOT of Steubenville residents who are sickened by this whole mess!! And they are not feeling too proud of their city leaders, school board, coaches and law enforcement. I feel sorry for the GOOD students of SHS who have to attend a school with a school board and coaches who have NO morals and care about nothing but Winning at All Costs!! I wish the Good students of SHS would rally together and say Enough-We Won’t Put Up With These Assholes at OUR School Anymore!!! Mrs. Lamantia You Can defend the good people of Steubenville and the good students, but you can’t defend your prosecutor, school board and coaches-YOU CAN’T-their actions speak for them!!!
Did she seriously tell people to follow Stranahan? LOL Is a pornographer someone she should really be telling people to listen to? When asked this very question on Twitter her reply was…
“what he does in his private time is in way shape or form any of my business. Is it illegal?”
Ok stop the truck the load shifted. Apparently someone named Frankie who lives in Steubenville and has been helping Anon, his personal business matters not only to Stranahan who spent days blogging and tweeting about him but also the assistant prosecutor Frank Bruzzese who posted a copy of Frankie’s legal problems on his Facebook page. So how come his private time is up for ridicule but Stranahan’s isn’t? Do these people seriously take the word of a known, admitted bondage/rape pornographer? Not only that, he is also a known scammer. Is that who they want leading the way for them?
Here’s the problem as sicnangry said, No one is blaming everyone. These people going on TV and crying about desk tents, are blowing it all way out of proportion. If I was a child I would be in fear too but not of someone wearing a mask but rather crazy insane women who created stories about desk tents and screams on tv. That is far more scarier than peaceful people who rally together for a victim!
Seriously these people are all fucking nuts and I can say with great conviction that I am glad I don’t live anywhere near Steubenville. The more these peple talk, the more they make their city look bad.
She sounds much better in this one. Her message really comes through to me.
Thanks Kat!! LOL
This one is my favorite!
Jackie’s vocals are howlarious!
DO YOU SOLEMNLY SWEAR TO TELL THE TRUTH, THE WHOLE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH??
The trouble with truth is it is much like beauty, it is simply in the eye of the beholder. In the Steubenville (Alleged) Rape case, many have come foreward professing to tell the truth, when in actuality, they don’t know all the facts and details, or they intentionally leave out important facts or details which may have a bearing on the truth.
Like it or not, the entire Steubenville Rape fiasco, became a fiasco at the hands of Prosecutor Jane Hanlin by not being honest with her ethical duties as a public prosecutor. Had she simply not violated the law years ago by remaining a member of the Steubenville School Board while an assistant prosecutor,perhaps the cries of cover-up and special treatment would never have become an issue. Jane Hanlin’s primary allegance to the School System as opposed to allegence to the community and the justice system is the reason the “alleged” rape case has become such a firestorm.
Sometimes, simply saying: “I’m sorry, I made a mistake,” is the more honorable thing to do than to put up a smoke screen or have your surrogates attempt to defend you by giving false and misleading information.
As an analagy: Lance Armstrong won 7 Tour DeFrance titles. He won a bronze medal in the Olympics. It turns out he cheated and then lied about the history behind those victories. Does he still get to claim he is the winner?
When Jane Hanlin sprung through the ranks of legal obscurity to that of Jefferson County Prosecuting Attorney she was hailed by her law partner Frank Bruzzese, vice-chairman of the Jefferson County Democratic Party and a member of the Jefferson County Board of Elections, as the best lawyer for the democratic appointment for the position. Attorney Bruzzese and his henchmen claimed that Jane Hanlin has a 100% conviction rate! You can’t do better than that!!!
Was that the truth? Or a little embellishment to manipulate the system for your own financial and political advantage?
A cursory examination of court dockets can be quite revealing. It, of course, is something the average citizen probably would not know how to do, or, for that matter, even think of doing.
In the year 2008, a man by the name of Clint Thomas was arrested by the State Highway Patrol. He was found to have illegal drugs on him. The manner and means under which those drugs were found were questionable. It was so questionable that a first year law student in criminal law or constitutional law would have seen a red flag on the case at the outset.
But, the assistant county prosecutor at the time, nevertheless took Mr. Thomas to trial as a result of a Grand Jury indictment. Foul!! claimed the defense attorney. Illegal search and seizure cried the defense! But the assistant prosecutor, in spite of the law, proceeded to defend the actions of law enforcement. Mr. Thomas was convicted .Mr. Thomas appealed his conviction and sentence.
The case went to appeal before the Seventh District Court of Appeals of Ohio in Case No. 2008-OHIO-6595 (Jefferson County Appeal Case #07-JE-43). On December 11, 2008, the Court of Appeals reversed the conviction holding there was an illegal search and seizure. Mr. Thomas was vindicated based upon improper conduct of law enforcement.
The assistant prosecutor’s name was Jane M. Keenan. So! She does not have a 100% conviction rate as professed by her law partner and her, now, chief assistant prosecutor Frank Bruzzese. Oh! I’m mistaken, Mr. Bruzzese was referring to Jane Hanlin not Jane Keenan. So that Jane Keenan loss does not count because she was prosecuting under a different name. Afterall, Lance Armstrong still is a winner, even though he was proven to be a fraud.
But the new and improved assistant prosecutor, now prosecutor going by a new name does not have such a clear victory (100% conviction) score either. Not at least when her cases get out of the local judicial hands and into the higher revewing court’s hands.
* In re J.P. 2012-OHIO-3343 (Jeff. Appeal #10 JE 23) decided June 18, 2012. In that case a 14 year old juvenile raped a 5 year old girl. The case was plea bargained. Then, there was an attempt to apply a new law dealing with sex offenders retroactively. WRONG--case reversed and remanded.
* State v. O’Malia, 2012-OHIO-2051 (Jeff. Appeal #11 JE 122). In that case, Mr. O’Malia was convicted of speeding. He cried foul claiming to the local Jefferson County Judge that he was not given a speedy trial and the case should be thrown out. His claims were ignored, On May 1, 2012, his conviction was reversed and vacated.
* State v. Bickerstaff, 2012-OHIO-1693 (Jeff. Appeal #11 JE 1693) On March 30,2012, the Court of Appeals reversed the sentencing of the local judge and sent the case back for new sentencing.
* State v. Gilbert, 2012-OHIO-1497 (Jeff. Appeal #11 JE 21) The defendant reprsent himself in the appeal against prosecutor Hanlin, On March 3, 2012, the Court of Appeals Reversed the sentencing and remanded the case back to the local court.
* State v. Hancock, 2010-OHIO-4854 (Jeff. Appeal #09-JE 30) In this drug case the qualifications of a certain Steubenville Narcotics Detective named Hanlin was brought into question. Detective Hanlin never tested the alleged crack cocaine in the lab as is the required standard procedure. On September 29,2010 the Court of Appeals remanded the case back to the lower court for new sentencing. The case was presented by assistant prosecutor Jane Hanlin.
* In Re J.H. (Jason T. Hanlin), 2011-OHIO-6536 (Jeff. Appeal # 10 JE 15) In this non-criminal case before the Jefferson County Juvenile Court, a Steubenville Narcotics Detective by the name of Hanlin was involved in protracted litigation over child support with a woman to whom he confessed paternity. Detective Hanlin allegedly refused to make court orderd child support payments. Contempt motions were filed. Issues over child tax exemptions arose. Although the local Juvenile Judge sided with Detective Hanlin and his attorney (and wife) Jane Hanlin of the law firm Bruzzese and Calabria, on December 16, 2011, the Court of Appeals Reversed and Remanded the case back to the local court.
And so the question remains: To the public officials, school officials, prosecutors, lawyers, law enforcement and defenders of all of them. DO YOU SOLEMNLY SWEAR TO TELL THE TRUTH? THE WHOLE TRUTH? AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH?
DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHAT THE TRUTH IS?
Wow! Incestuous “JUSTIC?” Well, there is a saying, “nothing done in secret will remain secret, all will be revealed openly, and rewarded”.
We humans would LOVE to see some real justice… Patients…. quiet patient endurance…it will come. There are those who do not realize how soon!
Great work per usual.
Gosh I hope you are right about justice coming soon. I can’t take anymore of these locals coming out. For Christ’s sake this woman was a student of her husband!!! Ew. She should of stayed in the closet for this operation like the rest of the Lamantia/Scaffidi crew ,only more looking after their “own”. Welcome to the Internet sweetheart. Nice to get to know you….very well…..very soon.
So you are saying that Nicole was the girlfriend of her TEACHER while at Big Red? ORLY!!! These people are all sexual deviants. Is that why they are standing up for redrapers?
Well! My Dear, I was not “fishing” for any more revelation, but then, that part about “things done in secret would NOT remain secret….”? it is not my saying, I cannot take credit, More is coming to light every day. This is only the very tip of the iceberg….. A storm is gathering, the rumblings were faint and afar off, Now closer, the loud Cracks and rolls are gaining attention…. Take shelter under the Wing of The Almighty! (Do Justice, have Mercy, be Honest by “walking humbly with your G-d!”)… Patients, Quiet patient endurance.
Years ago I wrote a song which outlines the family trees for most of the Steubenville “MoverS & Shakers” and protectors of the rape crew. It goes like this and you have my permission to sing it at THE TAKE BACK THE VILLE RALLY.
“Many, many years ago when I was twenty-three
I was married to a widow who was pretty as could be
This widow had a grown-up daughter who had hair of red
My father fell in love with her and soon they too were wed.
This made my dad my son-in-law and really changed my life
For now my daughter was my mother, ’cause she was my father’s
And to complicate the matter, even though it brought me joy
I soon becme the father of a bouncing baby boy.
My little baby then became a brother-in-law to dad
And so became my uncle, though it made me very sad
For if he were my uncle, then that also made him brother
Of the widow’s grownup daughter, who was of course my stepmother.
Father’s wife then had a son who kept them on the run
And he became my grandchild, for he was my daughter’s son
My wife is now my mother’s mother and it makes me blue
Because although she is my wife, she’s my grandmother too
Now if my wife is my grandmother, the I’m her first grandchild
And every time I thhink of it, it nearly drives me wild
Cause now I have become the strangest ’cause you ever saw
As husband of my grandmother, I am my own grandpa.
I’m my own grandpa, I’m my own grandpa
It sounds funny, I know but it really is so
I’m my own grandpa.
AND THERE YOU HAVE THE FAMILY TREE OF THE STEUBENVILLE/JEFFERSON COUNTY MOVERS AND SHAKERS!!
I suppose this woman means well, but I am still confused who “they” are who have taken the sanctity of our town. What is this about any way? Some people came together because of an “alleged” rape victim, plus, many people here are aware of the incestuous nature of local politics and others in prominent positions,including school officials. Many are sick and tired of the way things here operate and have for past century. Same “rules” just diff. players. Only a few have perverted this.
With or w/o masks can’t we stand for equal justice in this cnty/town. Holysmokes, this dopey video just worsens what was a very limited division here.
Great job you just made things worse for everyone here, but you are way to young to get it.
“Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.” “Unlimited power is apt to corrupt the minds of those who possess it” John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton, first Baron Acton (1834–1902). This situation in Steubenville IS Only the very tip of the iceberg.
Nicole, Nicole, Nicole… Please. Stay off the Internet with this stuff and use the kitchen to make some cookies. Get the facts. Nobody is beating up your town -- they’re just drawing attention to the FACTS on a global level. Please stand by as the truth unfolds.
Is she related to Joe Lamantia? The Jefferson County Sherrif Deputy? And the football coach? Or is this a different family?
