Have you heard Deric Lostutter (Anonymous) may get more jail time than rapists he helped expose?

He hacked tweets, videos and Instagram photos showing football players bragging about raping and humiliating a 16 year old girl. He may be sentenced to ten years in prison. The convicted rapists were sentenced to one and two years of juvenile detention. It is pretty much the definition of irony that a government that permits itself to "hack" the communications of anyone in this country, regards that action by a private citizen to be worse than participating in the gang rape of a teenaged girl.

Thoughts?

I would say I am more upset that they received such light sentences considering the extent of what they did (can't even put my feelings toward it into words), but this is just the cherry on the cake. I saw some of the things he leaked, and they definitely confirmed that those boys saw nothing wrong in what they were doing.

Did you hear what Serena Williams had to say about it?

“Do you think it was fair, what they got? They did something stupid, but I don’t know. I’m not blaming the girl, but if you’re a 16-year-old and you’re drunk like that, your parents should teach you—don’t take drinks from other people. She’s 16, why was she that drunk where she doesn’t remember? It could have been much worse. She’s lucky. Obviously I don’t know, maybe she wasn’t a virgin, but she shouldn’t have put herself in that position, unless they slipped her something, then that’s different.”

I hadn't seen that. Its so sad that a female role model would release a statement like that, and worse still that there are so many comments below the source agreeing with her. Blaming the victim and saying she's "lucky"? Disgusting.

I am speechless...okay, I am able to say that I am permanently outraged and disgusted, that I can say! And this:Thanks for sharing that, Stormy!

I've never cared for the Williams sisters when it came to the tennis arena but this and her slam against Sharapova take the cake. I was almost as appalled as I was about the Paula Deen apology(ies).

Agreed. And unfortunately she's just voicing the opinion that a lot of people have...
But yeah, I think this whole situation was handled exactly the wrong way, and it's ridiculous that someone who was trying to right things a bit gets more jail time than the offenders.
