Demand rape charges be brought against the men who raped and murdered 16-year-old African-American boy

Yesterday we reported on the virtual sweeping-under-the-rug of the death of Dione Payne, 16, of Dayton, Ohio. The Dayton Daily News, one of the only local sources to report on the rape, and beating death of the youth seemed more interested in focusing on the “troubled past” of the victim, instead of the past of the murderers.

Michael A. Geldrich, 36, and Michael J. Watson, 39, are both being held in the Warren County Jail for the December 1 beating death of the young Payne. Miami Valley Hospital workers discovered that Payne had been sexually assaulted during the attack. Hospital personnel contacted Middletown police and stated the teen had been sexually assaulted, according to the police report. But thus far, no rape charges have been brought, and hate crime charges have been dismissed point blank by Franklin Police Chief Russ Whitman, who said there is “no evidence” that there was a racial motive to the rape and murder of this 16-year-old African American.
To add insult to injury, some local media reports have fixated on a checkered history of the juvenile: possessing narcotics, and even allegations that he had fired gun shots in the past. They talked about morbid comments made on his Facebook account before the day he was raped and beaten to death. They even called the 16-year-old out for getting arrested for littering. What they did not do was explain why the police have ruled out a racial motive to the attack, and why the Warren County Prosecutor has neither pursued hate crime charges, nor even charged the attackers with rape.

These questions still remain unanswered. But there is more that we can do besides reading about this frustrating account and getting on with our day in silence. What can you do? Well for starters, contact the Warren County Prosecutor, who is now handling the case. Demand that all crimes committed against 16 year old Dione Payne be presented to the grand jury on Michael A. Geldrich and Michael J. Watson- for the hate crime of rape, robbery and murder! The prosecutor can be contacted at the number and email below:
David Fornshell513-695-1325David.Fornshell@co.warren.oh.us
Ask why these criminals have not been charged for raping the 16-year-old boy who they murdered. Also ask why hate crime charges are being excluded, when this does not seem to have been a common practice for these drug buyers to rape and beat-to-death previous people who they have tried to procure narcotics from.
Are these charges being brushed off because there were drugs potentially involved, or for some other reason that neither the police, the City of Franklin nor the local media are reporting.
SPREAD THE WORD and get people involved. Tell everyone you know who thinks this 16-year-old rape and murder victim deserves justice, in spite of his “troubled past”.

They probably haven’t been charged with rape because they are being charged with murder. Murder trumps rape.Hate crime charges are only sentencing multipliers so charging them as such would be redundant. Whether they get life or the death penalty, it would be hard to strengthen their sentence.

Men of color can’t rape white women.

collowrath:

fuckyeahdeadcrackers:

Listen up you white skanks.  You have no right to deny a man of color’s sexual advances.  You give him what he wants.  The history of white rape of everyone else demands this.  So drop your fucking panties and put out.  If he wants to hit you and beat you during it, too fucking bad.  If he wants to stab you and kill you, good.  You deserve it and you should acknowledge it.  This is not up for debate.

this is such a ridiculously stupid and obvious troll blog please get off of the internet forever

If a “man of color” tries anything of the sort to the women in my life, he’s going to get up close and personal with a few 9mm hollowpoints. Troll or not, rhetoric like this is asinine and only leads to conflict.

But then again, that’s what race baiting idiots want.

We have a program telling people not to rape. It’s called fucking PRISON.

Dumbasses.

Ironically, a large source of rape in and of itself.

Original post makes no sense not only because of that but because rape sentences for men are really not all that long meaning they are not some big thing hanging over the heads of people driven to do things like that and for women prison sentences for rape are rare. Also it’s not really a program teaching people not to rape but punishing them after the fact.

It’s work for me, I’ve never raped any one!

The very thought of losing my freedom, my Constitutional rights and being thrown into a compound with who knows what kind of bad and mentally deranged people keeps me from running afoul of the law. It doesn’t stop those who are determined to commit a crime, those that are mentally ill or those that commit their crimes in a fit of passion, but it sure keeps me from being an idiot.

That said, prisons do need to be reformed. The mentally ill and non-violent offenders really shouldn’t be housed with murderers, rapists and violent inmates.

If only guys were so aggressive towards rapists as they are towards the possibility of a woman not shaving for a month

Shots fired. 

Yes, because women who don’t shave are totally hunted down, jailed, put on trial and sentenced to long prison terms like rapists (if not shot and killed if they resist). Yea, sure.

A stat for the ladies:

In rape cases:

- Victims crying or pleading were raped 96% of the time
- Victims who loudly screamed were raped between 44% and 50% of the time
- Victims who ran were raped 15% of the time
- Victims who forcefully resisted (without a weapon) were raped 14% of the time
- Women who resisted with knives or guns were raped less than 1% of the time

A great article with other great stats here.

The usual stupid shit liberals come up with…how offensive. 

Wait wait wait, so are these people actually advocating that if I legally carry a gun that I am the one in the wrong if I shoot a man who is trying to rape me?
Hey feminists, where’s the outrage over this!?

More great liberal logic, rape is better because you aren’t murdered!
Rape will never be better or less bad than anything else, no matter how bad you want guns banned.

Many murder victims are raped before they are killed. So my question is this: How would a girl know that the guy raping her isn’t going to kill her when he’s done?
I’d rather the women in my life end the threat before they have to find out.

I’m not lying to anyone. If you think my views make me pro-murder, that’s fine with me. Call me a murderer, but if I was raped and impregnated I would run and get an abortion. Thank you for telling me what I am and what I think. It’s refreshing to have strangers criticize my personal views like I give a flying fuck what you think. I’m “pro-murder”? Okay. Fine. Fair enough. I would kill my fetus if I had a reason I felt good enough about. As a survivor of rape and incest (and I know everyone’s situation is different, I’m not saying all victims feel this way), I, personally, would rather be pro-murder than carry my rapist’s child. If that makes me selfish and despicable to some people, I’m fine with that. I’m the only person responsible for whatever consequences would befall me, as all women who choose abortion are. I strongly believe that it should stay legal to avoid putting countless women through the hell of losing even more control. I don’t know how I feel about abortion in the case of accidental pregnancy, but what a woman chooses to do with her unborn child is really none of my business, or yours. Excuse my rambling.

LOL see this is why we can’t allow liberals into a civilized society. They don’t care if you think they support murder. Any decent human being would not want to support murder.

I won’t say how horrible of a person you are for wanting to murder your own child because of no fault of their own. It’s not like you care right?

You know what? Why not say what a woman chooses to do with her born children is none of our business? Why not say if a woman wants to abuse her toddler she can. If she wants to kill her toddler, she can. It’s her choice right? It’s her body performing the actions, therefore it’s her body her choice.

You’re forgetting [more like ignoring] the fact that the unborn is its own person. You’re assuming it’s a part of the mother’s body and therefore it’s only her body. That is inaccurate. You haven’t answered the question “What are the unborn?” You’re just assuming they’re not their own person, without providing evidence of that. You won’t find evidence of that, because there is an overwhelming amount of evidence to the contrary. 

That awkward moment when the OP realizes rape, incest and health reasons only account for around 10% of all abortions…

This made me laugh so, so hard. I love it. I love it.

Making fun of women who get sexually assaulted. You stay classy Lefty Be Gone.

Classy? Leftybegone’s response is completely accurate. Actions like that just show how scummy and gross people can be. Most of the time, it’s not the woman’s fault that she’s assaulted, but actions such as that surely do promote the issue.
What this girl failed to recognize, when she decided to be so darn edgy and go around topless, is that she wasn’t hanging out with friends but with a large group of people-also known as a mob.
Now while she can be an idiot and show her boobs to ‘prove a point’ about how liberated she is or whatever, one thing she forgot was that mobs don’t behave like normal people.
On their own, each of the people in this picture more than likely wouldn’t have done much more than taken a look at her breasts then moved along. When you deal with mobs, you don’t deal with rational thinking, you deal with people that respond to circumstances not decency or ration thought.
For example, this thing probably started with one guy just thinking he was being funny by ‘honking’ her breast.  Nothing overly assaulting and, for the most part, not meant in any malicious or harmful way.  However, the mob sees one guy grab a boob then suddenly, it’s okay for all of them to do it.  That’s obviously not her thinking but it is the mobs.  Mobs don’t think like you or I, they think like…mobs.  This girl should consider herself lucky she wasn’t full on raped because mobs have a tendency to escalate things quickly past the point of no return.
And that’s the thing you people need to remember. When dealing with large groups or mobs you aren’t dealing with normal thinking people, you’re dealing with the mind of the collective which could give a shit about any individuals boundaries or respect.

Spread the word. Werd.

The Gay Republican What a slut. You can buy condoms, at the store for 5 bucks. What a joke. This girl is putting herself on the internet  with almost nothing on. What a slut, and yes I’m slut shaming.  

This girl is stupid in the following ways (other than the obvious):
Title 10. Birth control IS readily available. Look it up.
Rapists ARE prosecuted, we have a prison system crammed with them. Also, the prison system has quite a few wrongfully accused “rapists”, so if you report the guy make sure it’s the right one.
Sexual Education IS taught in school. If you didn’t get that class, your school sucked. 
If abortion is made illegal and you still get one then you have committed a crime. You will probably be sent to prison with those horrible rapists.
Yes your body is yours and you should love it, but you really aren’t beautiful enough to post yourself nearly naked. Get over yourself little snowflake, you’re just like the rest of us.
