CNN and Candy Crowley grieve that guilty verdict ruined ‘promising’ lives of Steubenville rapists Trent Mays and Ma’lik Richmond
So now rapists lives are ‘promising?’ CNN has gotten so bad that left wing propaganda site Raw Story has torn into them. Candy Crowley covered on Sunday Judge Thomas Lipps announcing that Trent Mays, 17, and Ma’lik Richmond, 16, would be given a maximum sentence after being found guilty of raping a 16-year-old girl, all of this while she was unconscious. Think the penalties for raping an unconscious victim are too severe? Richmond could be out by age 21 a d Trent Mays could be out after he passes 24 years old. The penalties are slim, but at least these two scumbags will see some justice, so everyone wins right? Wrong. CNN and Candy Crowley bemoaned that Mays and Richmond had their ‘promising lives ruined’ because of a verdict. Teenage rapists have promising lives? I must have missed something in the translation. Yes America, this is CNN.
CNN’s Candy Crowley began her breaking news report by showing Lipps handing down the sentence and telling CNN reporter Poppy Harlow that she “cannot imagine” how emotional the sentencing must have been.
Harlow explained that it had been “incredibly difficult” to watch “as these two young men — who had such promising futures, star football players, very good students — literally watched as they believed their life fell apart.”
“One of the young men, Ma’lik Richmond, as that sentence came down, he collapsed,” the CNN reporter recalled, adding that the convicted rapist told his attorney that “my life is over, no one is going to want me now.”
At that point, CNN played video of Richmond crying and hugging his lawyer in the courtroom.
“I was sitting about three feet from Ma’lik when he gave that statement,” Harlow said. “It was very difficult to watch.”
