Earlier this week, the KnightSec sub-group of hacktivist group Anonymous unleashed vigilantes on Steubenville, Ohio, where two high school football players are charged with kidnapping and raping a passed-out 16-year-old girl.
KnightSec, which apparently consists of quite a few feminist SlutWalk supporters, vowed to release information about the other students and adults involved in covering up the assault unless everyone involved publicly apologized to the girl and her family by New Year's Day.
Perhaps they're impatient to take the football team down, because they're already amping up efforts: the group hacked the team's website (it's back to normal now, but we got screencaps) and announced plans to "Occupy" the small town on December 29 and January 5 at noon at City Hall.
Yesterday, two of the people involved were listed as "to be left alone" (which implies that they they apologized, most likely), but later, one of them was "once again, not innocent."
Anonymous is also claiming to have found photos "strongly" resembling Savannah Dietrich, who was raped in Louisville Ohio under similar circumstances, in webmaster James "Jim" Parks email inbox. Why would he have those? Anonymous has an idea:
By finding this photo in the email above we believe that Mr. Parks who is also a football team booster has been sending, possibly hiring the team to go to different parties and send him pics of girls they take advantage of.
We'll keep you updated.
