    One of the alleged assailants in Steubenville is white, one black. Two are being prosecuted.
    One could argue that the sheriff and the football coaches and the local district attorney protected the privileged who were not arrested...but 'no consequences' is not factually accurate.

    It saddened me to read that Texas now spends less per pupil than Mississippi.  We have a backpack program too at our campus - like in MS, it is so necessary.

    •  Yes, but people get away with crimes like this all (0+ / 0-)

      the time, because they're football players, or the mayor's son, or whatever else the issue is.

      This happens all the time in small town america, and it's privilege.

      And they WOULD have gotten away with it if not for anonymous, is my understanding of the situation.
