Change.org Petition To CNN To Publicly Apologize For Sympathizing With Rapists
Please sign this petition demanding that CNN apologize for their coverage of the Steubenville gang rape trial. They sympathized with the rapists claiming that they were poor athletes whose lives were being ruined by this. They completely ignored the actual victim, a 15 year old girl, whose life really was ruined. Rape victims are never the same after being violated in such a heinous way and rapists deserved to be punished to the fullest extent of the law, not pardoned because they "just made a mistake". I'm disgusted by this culture's attitudes about rape and the constant victim-blaming. It is unacceptable and can not be tolerated. Its time for change!
