A documentary aired on PBS a couple of nights ago. The subject was the 2012 Steubenville case involving football players. For those of us who were on this site back then, it was a major topic of discussion (not just here, but all over). Here is a link to watch it, I thought it was well done.
This documentary just popped up on Netflix. It's reasonably shocking how much was swept under the rug by coaching and school staff alike. The interview sessions with detectives were also painful to watch, especially the Coach. Aside from the obvious moral lesson, it serves as a broader lens into social media self-awareness, and its inherent impact on this generation of kids/young adults. At the same time, it's also frightening to consider how much of this behavior probably occurs most Friday and Saturday nights 'not in Steubenville', and hence, without the same notoriety and name recognition, flies mostly under the radar in other 'burgs.
