Storyline

Roll Red Roll is a true-crime thriller that goes behind the headlines to uncover the deep-seated and social media-fueled "boys will be boys" culture at the root of high school sexual assault in America. At a preseason football party in small-town Steubenville, Ohio, a heinous crime took place: the assault of a teenage girl by members of the beloved high school football team. What transpired would garner national attention and result in the sentencing of two key offenders. But it was the disturbing social media evidence uncovered online by crime blogger Alex Goddard that provoked the most powerful questions about the case, and about the collusion of teen bystanders, teachers, parents and coaches to protect the assailants and discredit the victim. As it painstakingly reconstructs the night of the crime and its aftermath, Roll Red Roll uncovers the ingrained rape culture at the heart of the incident, acting as a cautionary tale about what can happen when teenage social media bullying ...

Its like the college comedies of the 80's and 90's, soccer are for sukkers,football are for the footballers. theyve always had the power to dominate their environment, and as to this case the rape that were commited and thank god the victim werent killed, shows just a 1 in a 1000 tip of the ice berg in these fraternities. let it be told , and use the social media to reveal the culprits you know about, and use the self pronounced crime bloggers for what they are and can, because they got the heart and guts to act and protect the way the officials cant. howcome american football need so extremely vast number of players on the teams? it seems to me that a football game are just a bunch of time outs, with coaches beheaded with some kida astronout headsets, im sure the have some spy sats hanging over the pits to view the game for them, to make the football stars even brighter.i think american football is a big joke, and its just away for the american public to soscialize in a well protected and fairly safe zone for a few hours. the rest is like having a romantic interlude until all of a sudden a swimmer chases away from the others and crosses the white line , and everybody relieve a screaming climax of joy for the swimmer who hit the golden egg .

this is a good documentary, though a bit biased on the prosecution side, but thats all right. it has its own drive and that is the key to a good documentary the perputrators got punished , but its a digrace of justice the small sentences given. 10000000 $ of fine shouldve been paid to the victim.....

so if you have problems with american sports and their god like excecuters then the grumpy old man recommends a look at this docu.
