This is of course completely incorrect, as witnessing a crime and failing to report it is in itself a crime
did we ever confirm that Ohio has a "good samaritan" law?
And finally he states, again incorrectly – that he CAN’T investigate the gang rape attack or whether or not this has happened to other victims because it is not his jurisdiction. As almost everyone knows, the Sheriff is the highest law enforcement officer in a county and has jurisdiction over ANYTHING in that county. Under constitutional law, his authority even trumps that of the federal law enforcement agencies in his own county
i don't know how ohio handles these things, but this is 100% wrong with respect to the feds. if the feds come and their investigation is pursuant to federal law, they have jurisdiction
out here, for a sheriff to be involved it has to involve an ongoing investigation or fall outside of a city limits. if it's within a city, the city police handle with assistance from the LA State Police if it's too much, typically (but the CPSO can assist)
several KEY pieces of video and photographic evidence were “inadvertently” deleted by the Sheriff and his deputies.
do we have any confirmation of this?
i know that one kid deleted stuff before he gave up his phone AND testified against the others, but this line keeps being repeated with no backup
And finally, Sheriff Abdalla runs the largest illegal gambling operation in Jefferson County – employing bookies who work out of the Spot Bar in Steubenville. Sheriff Abdulla’s brother is the largest importer of cocaine in Jefferson County.
The Honorable Jane Hanlin is a Prosecuting Attorney for Jefferson County and the mother of Big Red football player Charlie Keenan, who is suspected of being a member of “The Rape Crew”. Jane Hanlin represented Edward “Eddie” Lulla in his divorce this summer (spending a great deal of time with him). Mr. Lulla is an agent for the BCI who was sent by the State of Ohio to lend oversight to the rape investigation in Steubenville. Not surprisingly, the State of Ohio found everything to be going smoothly. In addition, “Eddie” Lulla’s son was recently chosen to join Steubenville Police Department out of a pool of three candidates. When ranked, his son was not the first candidate. It is crystal clear why Mr. Lulla was unable to find anything wrong with the current investigation (which is being conducted by SPD) into this horrible crime.
It appears that Prosecutor Hanlin doesn’t just cover for her own son, either. In May of 2012, Ed Wilson a Steubenville Big Red football player and two other unknown individuals shot out the windows of 14 vehicles in Steubenville. Despite being arrested, and confessing to the crime – he was never sentenced or made to pay restitution. The case was handled by Jane Hanlin’s office.
the prosecution is being handled by the State's AG office and not the local prosecutorial agency
The students in the classes at Steubenville High School are carefully segregated. Football players take their exams separate from other students, and they are allowed and even encouraged to cheat. The teachers assist the players in cheating on state tests, that result in a 100 percent pass rate by all football players on these exams.
And finally, this regime goes beyond mere protection. Big Red Football Players are rewarded for their athletic prowess with a carefully moderated system of vice. Assistant Coach Pierro handles this aspect of the “program”, allowing the boys to view porn on his computer – and even providing drugs and alcohol to those who are “extra” deserving. Pierro is assisted in his seedy duties by none other than James Parks, profiled above. The drugs for the boys “entertainment” are supplied by known local drug dealer Nathan Hubbard, who is also a patron of the Spot Bar in Steubenville from which he is known to peddle his poisons. The “date rape” drug used to knock the victim of the gang rape conscious was supplied by this criminal with the knowledge and consent of Parks and Pierro.
whoever wrote this is going to get suuuuuuuuued
Cody Saltsman: Saltsman was originally charged in the gang rape. After a private back-room meeting at Mario’s restaurant in Weirton, Ohio between Saltsman’s father, the Sheriff – and a certain Mr. Teramana (a wealthy Steubenville resident) – Cody Saltsman’s charges were mysteriously dismissed. Saltsman is perhaps one of the most repugnant individuals the LocalLeaks staff has ever encountered. His posts on Twitter and other social media show him to not only be completely calous regarding the horrendous abuse that he and his friends meted out upon their defensless victim, but show clearly that this young man is an extremely dangerous sociopath who truly needs to be incarcerated.
his sued the blog that wrote a lot of information about the case for defamation and apparently a settlement was reached (prior to anon even getting involved)
