Only days after a sexual assault verdict against two high school football players in Ohio, a small town in Connecticut finds itself split by a situation with many similarities.

In Steubenville, Ohio, the players were accused of raping an underage victim, and convicted March 18.

In Connecticut, Torrington High School football players Edgar Gonzalez and Joan Toribio, both 18, stand accused of the sexual assault of a 13-year-old girl.

And, as in the Ohio case, it's the accusers who are under attack via social media.

Undoubtedly Candy Crowley will shed crocodile tears for these rapists too.

The libs will give these attacks a pass because they are too busy pretending there is a conservative “war on women”. Apparently picking on a girl too young to vote for a liberal is okay with the liberals.

I like the Muzzie excuse, “What was a 13 year old doing hanging out with 18 year olds?”.
lol so it was HER fault she brought this upon herself! Of course because a 13 year old really knows better, and should stay away from popular 18 year olds. Give me a break... because these guys are athletes they’re like Saudi nobility and can get away with pedophilia.

While the males are responsible and must be held accountable her parents share some of the culpability. What responsible 13 year (7th /8th grader) old parents let them hang out with 17 and 18 year olds (juniors and seniors)?

Apparently there is another 17 year old minor that is being charged and there are two 13 year old victims according the this story from the local paper.

http://www.registercitizen.com/articles/2013/03/22/news/doc514bd7bfb1afc269083144.txt

Torrington turns attention to bullying in wake of football rape scandal

snip

Joan Toribio and Edgar Gonzalez, both 18 of 330 Highland Ave., are accused of statutorily raping two separate 13-year-old victims.

Toribio is charged with two counts of second-degree sexual assault and three counts of risk of injury to a minor, all felonies, related to two separate alleged incidents which occurred in the same “time period,” according to police.

Gonzalez is charged with second-degree sexual assault and two counts of risk of injury to a minor, felonies. Gonzalez is also facing robbery charges, three felonies and two misdemeanors, in an unrelated alleged incident. A 17-year-old city male is charged with second-degree sexual assault related to the same two victims.

Perhaps they didn’t know? When I was in HS, both my parents worked. They couldn’t quit their jobs just so they could follow me around 24 hours a day.

Where in the article does it say they are illegals? Or do you just assume all Hispanics are here illegally, even those who followed the rules and immigrated here legally. And what presidents and senators you gonna blame for white rapists?

you can’t show pictures! That causes racial profiling. And before long people will notice a pattern to these cases.

Because expecting adults to behave like adults is racist or something?

Blacks and latinos do indeed rape at a higher frequency...much higher

A white woman has a very high chance if she is raped by a stranger that it will be a by a black man especially in the South but the reverse for a black woman by a white man is almost a non occurrence stat wise

However...I do agree that we cannot blame mid 60s path to citizenship or 1980s amnesty for these two cretins

likely they are Puerto Rican

so let’s blame....William McKinley...suits me

I think 17 and 18 year olds are old enough to know not to rape girls and that sex with kids is verboten.

It has nothing to do about being illegal.

It has everything to do with changing the demographics purposely.

More macro than micro.

Thank you Ted Kennedy and Ronald Reagan.

Anyone who expects better judgement from the 13 year old than the 18 year olds is weird

35,000 to 10, annually...but Chuck Todd, the New York Times and Wolf Blitzer will cover as much of that as they possibly can...facts hurt victim narratives.

"What's important too is that school is a place for learning,' Torrington Schools Superintendent Cheryl Kloczko said. "Many times what happens is the Twitter, and the emails, and the Facebook, a lot of that goes on outside of school that we don't even have knowledge of, and then it gets dragged into school and that's a challenge,' Kloczko said.

"Families could help us with more careful use of technology by their children, maybe it wouldn't come into school,' she added.

Torrington, you need to punish those RAPISTS. We should take the lead that even if you are a football star (in CT High School football is not as popular as in FL or TX) if you rape you'll be in trouble!

Torrington, support the kid who reported the rape.

That is why I said they should be held responsible, but do good parents let their middle school daughter associate with high school seniors and juniors?

Ok. So if a Native-American woman is raped by a white male, it’s perfectly logical for her to blame it on Europeans and their leaders in the 1500’s and 1600’s because they purposely changed the demographics of this country,,,right?

Your arguments are spurrious, at best.

Stats prove otherwise.

No they aren’t spurious. You blamed Reagan for this rape. By that line of reasoning a Native-American woman raped by a white male can blame a European or British leader in the 1500’s for it.
