The locals always referred to it as "Stupidville." Women were also warned never to go there by themselves because this is considered acceptable behavior over there. It's been going on much longer than this.
I've been to Steubenville a couple of times, and honestly, it's probably one of the worst places that I've ever step foot into. Even before the steel mills closed, the town wasn't exactly a nice place to have a family or even to visit unless you were a part of the football team.
As for the case itself, it's really nothing more than a quagmire of he said, she said and outside groups sticking their noses where they don't fucking belong. The video in itself is obviously in poor taste, no one disputes that, but that alone is not an admission of guilt. Of course, there are some ignorant people out there who would the low blow tactic of "because they're football heroes in a shit town, then there is some sort of cover up involved." which basically means that the football team is above the law, and that's not the case, especially if two members of that team are being tried for rape in the first place.
Either way, this will not end well, no matter who wins this case.
