Audrie Potts: Saratoga Rape Case

Assaulted Teen SuicideThree teens were arrested for the rape of Saratoga teen Audrie Potts. After the sexual assault Audrie was cyber-bullied. She was teased and taunted, called a slut and a whore on social media sites. Audrie committed suicide because of this.

Seven months later the three boys involved in raping her  will have to answer questions about that night when the teens attended a classmate’s party who’s parents were out of town in Napa getting drunk on wine.

Party-goers said Potts was already drunk and passed out when they got to the party. Apparently, Potts was drinking before the party even got started.

In the Steubenville rape case the victim was also drinking excessively. She was raped by two football players.

Pictures were taken of the victim being carried by these boys just before she was sexually assaulted. She was also cyber-bullied.

Rehtaeh Parsons, a 17-year-old high school student from Halifax, Nova Scotia, was taken off life support on Sunday, three days after she tried to hang herself. She was gang raped.

Pictures and film were taken during that crime and dissemated on social media sites. She was then cyber-bullied.

All three of these cases involve the internet and specifically social media. There is nothing social about social media. It has become a place of arguments, a place to spread vicious lies and random stupidity. And now it is a place to post a crime and everyone joins in to victimize the victim!

Facebook fucking hates me. They wouldn’t let me put a Facebook page up for TPP. Any chance I can be a bad little Doctor I spread my link like a dog pisses on every lamp post in a park on Facebook.

But in light of these cases involving social media and in particular Facebook, I am going to protest cyber-bullying by deleting my social media sites. I am sick of being involved with the Mark Fuckerberg fight club.

What I am asking you is to do the same. Delete your social media sites. I know some of you might be addicted to Fuckbook. Delete and end Fuckerberg’s mind control tool!

Stop wasting your precious time looking at other people’s cars, boats, fancy houses or hot spouses and making yourself feel inadequate about your own life.

Stop arguing with stupid political extremist propaganda posted by assholes who haven’t read a newspaper in their fuckin’ lives.

Spare yourself  from the multiple posts that jackasses make like, “Going to Baskin Robbins. Going to get some vanilla ice-cream.”  Or, “Jimmy took his first piss in the potty.” Who gives a fat rat’s ass? Not me.

Remember these girls and all those who have been bullied over the net. Take a stand and do your part by not condoning cyber-bulliying by deleting Facebook.

  1. Oh and this article, minus all the bad language, will be sent to some Bay Area newspapers because Puffy loves the press and visa versa. Fuck Fuckerberg. I hope his Rome crumbles.

  2. Good Morning drpuffy!

    Funny Story: About 4 years ago, the news media wouldn’t shut up about this new internet hoopla. My dad (who is 80 this 19th of April) was explaining to my mom what this big hoopla was all about. “What is this Face Book and My Space” my mom asked. Oh, that is so easy he said, Face Book is a Photo Album on the internet and My Space is an internet that gives people their space. My mom rolled her eyes and asked the grandkids and they told her. Oh my parents………………..

    Okay so I got Face Book because it was a way for me to see my nieces art work. I talk to all my nephews and nieces, the posse from Broadway, the old folks. I don’t let any fool on there. I have never deleted anyone from my list of family and select friends. I have been messaged to accept a few idiots that have the bocce balls to ask me to be their friends um……Hell To The NO! But some people don’t have a life and base their popularity on the likes and comments about their post. LOSERS!

    I feel sad every time that I read about cyber bullying ends with the weaker person offing themselves. It takes me back to my Stephen King moment with my cousin Patricia. I just think that criminal charges should be brought to those who raped the girls. Everyone who threatened the girls will pay with KARMA. KARMA collects every time! It might not be immediate but it KARMA gets PAID!

    drpuffy, what do you think about Roman Polanski?
    On 11 March 1977, Polanski, then 43 years old, was arrested in Los Angeles for the sexual assault of 13-year-old Samantha Geimer during a photo shoot for French Vogue magazine. Polanski was indicted on six counts of criminal behavior, including rape. At his arraignment he pled not guilty to all charges. Many executives in Hollywood came to his defense. Geimer’s attorney next arranged a plea bargain in which five of the six charges would be dismissed and Polanski accepted. Because Polanski fled the country before final sentencing, the charges were not dismissed and still remain pending.

    As a result of the plea bargain, Polanski pled guilty to the charge of “Unlawful Sexual Intercourse with a minor,” and was ordered to undergo 90 days of psychiatric evaluation at Chino State Prison. On release from prison after 42 days, Polanski understood that at the final sentencing he would be put on probation. However, he learned that the judge was planning to renege on his promise of no further jail time,[104] and might even deport him. Polanski’s attorney suggested that despite the fact that the prosecuting attorneys recommended probation, “the judge could no longer be trusted . . .” and the judge’s representations were “worthless.”

    Upon learning of the judge’s plans, Polanski fled to France on 1 February 1978, just hours before sentencing. As a French citizen, he has been protected from extradition and has lived mostly in France since then.

    In an interview with Larry King, Geimer said that the police and media had been slow at the time of the assault to believe her account, which she attributed to the climate of the era. In 1988 she sued Polanski. Among other things, the suit alleged sexual assault, false imprisonment, seduction of a minor, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. In 1993 Polanski agreed to settle with Geimer. In August 1996 Polanski still owed her $604,416; Geimer and her lawyers later confirmed that the settlement was completed.

    On 26 September 2009, Polanski was arrested while in Switzerland at the request of U.S. authorities.The arrest brought renewed attention to the case and stirred controversy, particularly in the U.S. and Europe. Polanski was defended by many prominent individuals, including Hollywood celebrities and European artists and politicians, who called for his release. American public opinion was reported to run against him, however, and polls in France and Poland showed strong majorities favored his extradition to the U.S.

    Polanski was kept in jail near Zurich for two months, then put under house arrest at his home in Gstaad while awaiting decision of appeals fighting extradition. On 12 July 2010 the Swiss rejected the U.S. request, declared him a “free man” and released him from custody.

    During a television interview on 10 March 2011, Geimer blamed the media, reporters, the court, and the judge for causing “way more damage to [her] and her family than anything Roman Polanski has ever done,” and stated that the judge was using her and a noted celebrity for his own personal gain from the media exposure.

    This criminal has been admired by so many on his films and what a great man he is and blah blah blah. These celebrities make me sick! All smiles when mentioning this POS. I WILL NEVER SEE A ROMAN POLANSKI MOVIE. NEVER EVER! It’s my way to stand up to this monster. I am doing my part !!!!!!!!! :)

    • Can’t go around raping kids and flee the country and then expect people to feel sorry for this dude. Sorry he has to eat shit and pay for his crime like every other child molester even if his wife was murdered by Charlie Manson.

    • Your article is written with a good heart and the right spirit. Might I point to you that the criminal activities performed had nothing to do with social media. As in the Ohio case, the conduct of the molesters was the real crime – probably what many girls face and in many cases unheard of. The crime is also the fact that so many students know about the assault and are either passive or participate in the bullying of a victim – just when she needs help from her friends, they turn on her.

      Social media has given it an added dimension. Turning off facebook might keep us tuned out of the crimes, but act of horror continue to happen nonetheless. And if I would also venture to say that the social media provide the key evidences here, as in Ohio. Of course its only the not-so-smart perpetrators who get caught – the smart ones don’t click picture and videos. How do we catch them?

      • You make great points. The internet has changed our world. You are right in terms of the good things it can do especially if there has been a crime committed. I don’t have a clue as to what we should do. Maybe we need to address this “Slut, whore” bullying crap.

  3. If Facebook allows a page like this: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Alex-Oliver-dibujante/506969696007909 Then it makes zero sense why you can’t have a page for your blog.

    I was off of Facebook for a good while, almost a year, but then went back for the simple reason of keeping in contact with friends in other states. I go on to read messages, answer posts on my OWN wall, and never read the news feed. It’s working out better for me this way than being all involved in someone else’s showboating, complaining, and downright meanness. I use Twitter though, I like it a lot better than Facebook because it’s less engaging than Facebook. People on Facebook get what I like to call, keyboard courage, and think it won’t bother anyone.

    Check out PATH, it’s a social site, but less people on it to make it a pile of crap yet.

    • When I went to create a FB page for TPP they said my shit was to naughty and to take a hike. So couldn’t do that. I have been banned, blocked you name it. I have also been accused as a pornographer by an In Session commenter. My reply of course was, “I’m not a pornographer, I’m a distributor. Totally different.” Then I was block from leaving comments. Moderators treat me like the pest I am. I love it! And my peskiness only entices people to come over to the dark side. (Evil laugh, te hee hee.)

  4. oh – i worship you! deleting facebook would be a dream. but because i live 2000 miles from home (and everyone i know), and am queen puffy, i can’t remember anything, so i have to keep it up. hate it. however, i have previously done a big cleanup and deleted anyone talking about stupid shit or politics. too many idiots out there to argue with. had to delete my loving 3rd grade teacher, during last election. couldn’t believe the propaganda she was spewing out about my man, barry. trying to reason with stupidity is a waste of time. i haven’t seen you in over 30 years. i can continue to live without her.

    a comment about the rapes and suicides. i was watching the news over the weekend and the newscaster was asking some expert why all these college incidents are “suddenly” happening. she attributed to “the times”. i disagree. nothing has changed. some college boys have always been rapists and got away with it. the difference is now, there is this stupid thing called social media and the EVIDENCE is recorded/filmed and then shared.

    my kids (5 yrs & 11 yrs) don’t now and will never have any social media account, until they are 18. shit, they don’t even know what a music video is (besides metal mania – which doesn’t count, as they are scared of it). yes, i’m overprotective and controlling. but in the end, i hope it pays off with their experiences and self-esteem. i was bullied in jr. high. i know the pressure and the pain that kids can cause. i remember feeling like my life was over. i can’t even fathom how i would have felt, or what i would have done, if i had been exposed or humiliated online.

    love your blog!! gives me something to read, while puffing. ;)

    xo
