sunshine72 that apology would change nothing. That just candy coats the problems. If this is the case and that is all this group is wanting...it's a wasted effort.

notsocialist, they are just following the plan that elected officials rely on...the fight isn't against them, the fight is between us and they continue to keep us divided. It isn't about the issue, it's which side you want to jump on, right or wrong and that is what is killing this country and growing these problems.

I'm not disagreeing with you, it is just my opinion that they are showing this stuff to make people aware. I don't think they necessarily want charges. In the warning video all they said was they wanted a public apology. I know there is a fine line between exposing this kind of stuff, and violating privacy etc.. I'm only saying that I think it's a good thing that they did it. Even if is determined that nothing he did was illegal, perhaps this experience will make him think twice about being an idiot again.

"If someone watched someone murder a person, did nothing except laugh about it, would you still say there is nothing wrong with that?"

I am confused about that because first I never once said there is nothing wrong with what happened, I am just saying there is nothing to charge him with. Doesn't make me happy about it.

all have cellphones and you can bet that there were some that captured it on video and turned it over to the police. They probably have tons of witnesses that came forward and plenty of video as evidence.

And believe me that part about the corruption. You know my temperament when it comes to it. Between that school board, these parents involved and those coaches, that is alone enough to make you sick to your gut with their actions. But you know what? That is our society today. People like me with that no nonsense to this stuff are very few. Look how many times I open my mouth and voice my opinions against this stuff...

This group wants action taken on this kid in the video but there is nothing the police can do about it.

sunshine72, like I said, that video was disgusting and very disturbing. That kid has a real twisted mind. In fact that ingrate should be grateful to God that I was not his parent because I would end up in jail. But that is just me. That boy would be begging for mercy.

But he committed no crime, whether or not he seen it happen he did not commit a crime, God only knows how many kids from that school at those different parties wittinessed it happening too. That is what I said in my first comment. The only way he could be charged for accessory is if he knew prior to the crime being committed, had that knowledge or participated in it. Witnessing a crime is not a crime.

Seriously sunshine, do you really believe that those cops after viewing that video, the same video they probably had long before this group put it out that if there was anyway to connect him to that rape they would have already had him in custody. You can bet that not everyone of those kids were little scumbags,

And it wasn't obtained illegaly. Once you post something on line, you have no idea where it will end up.

The video can also be used as evidence because of the things he saw being done. This could help in the prosecution of those already arrested.

If someone watched someone murder a person, did nothing except laugh about it, would you still say there is nothing wrong with that? Just because it's a rape, the principle, and the law is still there.

And corruption will always be there. But something can only be corrupt as long as you let it. You of all people should know this watchdog. How often to you speak out against wrongs you see being commited in public offices or in your neighborhood? Should we all just sit silent and let whatever happens happen?

He clearly states that he witnessed things. Because this was an illegal act, he could be an accessory. "An accessory must generally have knowledge that a crime is being, or will be committed. A person with such knowledge may become an accessory by helping or encouraging the criminal in some way, or simply by failing to report the crime to proper authorityhings. That could be an accessory. "

You are correct there should be no legal consequences for his words. Sick as the words are, he does have freedom of speech. But we also have the right to free speech to state our opinion of his free speech.

You can also clearly hear a couple boys saying they were going to try to help her. I don't know that they did, but that alludes to the fact that this may have been going on at that time still.
