10 people showed up to hear Deric Lostutter/ Aka KY Anonymous speak outside of the Ohio Attorney General’s Office. It was very apparent that no one from #oprollredroll or those involved in Steubenville were in attendance. In fact, unless any of the 10 supporters who showed were anons and just were  unmasked for the day, it’s fair to say that no members of anonymous were present to support Ky as he spoke to his supporters and wanted to demand his charges be dropped. KY has not been charged with a crime in the 2 months since the FBI raid on his home, but his attorney’s are confident “He will be charged any day now.”

Ky is still facing heavy public scrutiny over raising over $53,500 for his legal defense for when  charges are filed against him. Ky wearing a white Knightsec tshirt available from his website, and wearing a guy fawkes mask on top of his head accompanied supporters inside the building to deliver a 200,000 signature petition to drop the possible pending charges against the 26-year-old rapper. Over the weekend another anon, @anonforecast claimed to have been raided by the FBI in connection with #oprollredroll In which this anon who had nothing to do with Steubenville was questioned about certain screen names from twitter and had his phone seized.

Ky Read a prepared statement from his phone, and the petition to the AG’s office was delivered. The rally lasted around 38 minutes which is a drastic switch from the #occupysteubenville rallies which would last 3-4 hours.

Further internet controversy occurred over the weekend when Ky Anonymous compared himself to recently deceased journalist Michael Hastings.

Where have all of Ky’s supporters gone?

COLUMBUS, Ohio — 

The Steubenville teen rape case continues to attract the attention of activist groups around the country. 

And on Thursday morning, two of them presented Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine with a petition urging him and state investigators to pursue additional charges. 

An online petition with more than 70,000 signatures calls for full prosecution of everyone who may have been involved in the alleged incident. The petition was delivered by members of two separate groups: UltraViolet and the Ohio state chapter of Choice USA. 

DeWine met them outside his office in Columbus, reviewed the petitions and told prosecutors that they’re on the same page. 

“Our intent, like theirs, is to seek justice. My job is not just to get a conviction. My job is to seek justice,” DeWine said. 

Two Steubenville High School student-athletes are charged with raping the girl in August. A hearing is set for Friday on defense motions to close, delay and move the trial to another venue. A non-jury trial before a visiting judge is set to begin on Feb. 13.

One of the groups that went to DeWine’s office — UltraViolet — is the same group that paid for a mobile billboard, which rode through Steubenville, calling for action. 

The mobile billboard was directed toward Attorney General Mike DeWine and read: “Prosecute everyone who’s involved in the rape of a 16-year-old girl in Steubenville, including those who posted photos and videos on the Internet instead of trying to stop or report the crime. The world is watching Steubenville.”

According to a Jan. 16 news release from the group, UltraViolet is an online community of more than 300,000 women and men “who want to take collective action to expose and fight sexism in the public sector, private sector and the media.” 

In that news release, UltraViolet co-founder Nita Chaudhary, said, “70,000 UltraViolet members demand that Attorney General Mike DeWine step up his work in this case to show that when it comes to a crime as serious as rape there (are) no ‘get out of jail free’ cards.” Chaudhary added, “The world is watching Steubenville, and we want to see justice. This billboard is only the first step.”
