Rape case shocks Ohio town

Forensic psychology expert Wendy Walsh discusses the treatment of a young rape victim from Steubenville, Ohio and the attitude of the accused attackers on a recently released video.  A cooperative of the internet 'hacktivist' group Anonymous drew attention to the video saying certain officials in the town are keeping quiet to protect members of the football team.

    Why isn't more attention being paid to the worship of high school football in these areas? There is a long history of vicious misbehavior of young males who are on the football teams. And why would it stop? The parents and adults of these areas are the ones driving the football culture.

    In a pathetic culture that misuses words like "heroes" to describe mere athletes and makes statues of ethically impaired coaches rather than its Nobel prize winners – what do you expect. I say reduce the importance of sports at all levels other than for exercise/team skills and shift the focus to academics. I know that this will not happen, and thus America will continue to sink into a low IQ oblivion of its own peoples making. Pathetic.
