STEUBENVILLE -- Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine tells WKYC's Tom Beres two girls have been arrested for making threats social media threats against the victim in the recent emotional rape trial here.

Steuben Glass Works was an American art glass manufacturer, founded in the summer of 1903 by Fredrick C. Carder and Thomas G. Hawkes in Corning, New York, which is in Steuben County, from which the company name was derived.
Steubenville is a city and county seat of Jefferson County, Ohio, United States. Located along the Ohio River, it is a principal city of the Weirton, WV–Steubenville, OH Metropolitan Statistical Area, a subsection of the Pittsburgh metropolitan area. As of the 2010 census, the city population was 18,659.
The city's name comes from Fort Steuben, a 1786 fort that sat within the city's current limits and was named for German-Prussian military officer Baron Friedrich Wilhelm von Steuben. Today, a replica of the fort is open to the public.
Steubenville is known as the "City of Murals", after its more than 25 downtown murals. It is home to Franciscan University of Steubenville and Eastern Gateway Community College (formerly Jefferson Community College).

20. Weirton West Virginia is right across the River, from Weirton you can go by bike to DC
First you take the Panhandle trail to the Montour trail south and west of Pittsburgh, then you take the Great Allegheny Passage to the C&O Canal which goes right to the Watergate IN DC (The Watergate was the name for it was the first water gate on the Canal, the Watergate of Watergate Scandal fame was build near the sight of the first watergate).
The Montour Trail:
Map of both the Montour and Panhandle trails:
Please note some parts of the Montour trail has NOT been built, mostly from Library to Large PA, and then from Clariton to McKeesport (Where the Montour connects with the Great Allegheny Passage):.

23. Nothing in the Water
Dissing the rape victim by girls is common. When there was a rape on my floor in my dorm in college (the '70's), the victim having been held hostage for 24 hours with a clock radio cord around her neck after the guy (a relative stranger) hid in her room while she was taking a shower, all the "she deserved it," "she asked for it," and "it wasn't really rape" nonsense came from females. You could friggin' SEE the bruises from the electric cord around her neck if you walked by her. It was beyond disgusting.

18. The threats are a result of the verdict obviously
They should be thrown in jail, I just don't give a shit how old they are. I hope Dewine holds to his promise to keep the pressure on if anyone was directly or indirectly involved.
