Steubenville Assailant Is Back On His High School Football Team

trent mays malik richmond

Remember when two teenaged boys from Steubenville High School were sentenced for sexual assaulting a 16-year-old girl and all CNN could do was mourn about how these two boys’ lives were “destroyed”? It was a rather disgusting display of where some people’s priorities lie: as the judge rendered a guilty verdict towards two young sexual abusers, CNN’s Poppy Harlow lamented, “These two young men — who had such promising futures, star football players, very good students — literally watched as they believed their life fell apart.”

Well, good news, everyone who felt bad someone screwed up his “promising future” by sexually assaulting a fellow human being: 18-year-old Ma’Lik Richmond is back to playing on his high school football team. Keep reading »

Renisha McBride’s Killer, Theodore Wafer, Found Guilty

Prosecutors Charge Theodore Wafer, The Man Who Killed Renisha McBride, With 2nd Degree Murder

The jury has spoken: Theodore Wafer, the Michigan man who shot unarmed Black teenager Renisha McBride on his doorstep, is guilty of second-degree murder, manslaughter, and one count of felony firearm. Back in November, 19-year-old McBride got into a car accident and found her way to Wafer’s front door, which she knocked on at nighttime. Wafer shot McBride in the head through a closed and locked screen door on his front porch, killing her. Wafer, who is white, had initially claimed that his gun went off accidentally; he had also claimed that he didn’t know his gun was loaded. Wafer now faces life in prison with the possibility of parole. [New York Daily News; MSNBC]

python 080514

It wasn’t enough for Sarah Espinosa of Albany, New York, to crash into a firehouse while driving drunk. No, she had to show off and do it with a python around her neck. A stolen python, that is. Last night, Espinosa crashed through the garage door of a firehouse  on Long Island and struck two firetrucks. Firefighters quickly scampered to the scene to find a “small ball python” around her neck. Before she drunkenly got behind the wheel of her car, this pillar of society had stolen the snake from a nearby Petco store. Espinosa got hit with a DUI, unlawful possession of marijuana, reckless driving, second-degree reckless endangerment, and petty larceny; the python was returned unharmed. [Newsday] [Image of a python via Shutterstock]

The Soapbox: On Richard Dawkins’ Rape Comments & How We Discuss Sexual Assault

Yesterday, the atheist and evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins made comments about rape and pedophilia on Twitter that made many people angry.

From what I can gather, Dawkins appeared to have been tweeting over the weekend regarding religion and Israel, saying support for the Israeli state does not mean condoning the country’s current behavior in Gaza. Then he pivoted his examples — I would argue somewhat insensitively — to ones about about sexual abuse:

Japanese Girl Charged With Decapitating Friend

A 16-year-old Japanese girl described by friends as emotionally unstable has been charged with bludgeoning and decapitating a 15-year-old friend, telling police “I did it all by myself,” the Japan News reports. The body of Aiwa Matsuo was found early yesterday in the suspect’s Sasebo apartment, where she’d lived alone since April; Aiwa’s left hand and head had been cut off. Police say the unnamed suspect hit Aiwa over the head several times with a metal instrument on Saturday night, then strangled her with a cord; an autopsy today revealed Aiwa died of suffocation. The pair had been friends since middle school. Read more on Newser…
