A teenager in Ohio is accused of live streaming the rape of her friend. Allegedly, she didn’t call the police, but she did laugh. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“A woman will appear in an Ohio court on Friday accused of broadcasting a friend’s alleged rape on the mobile app Periscope.

Marina Lonina, 18, faces charges that she used her mobile phone to broadcast live a 17-year-old girl being raped by a mutual acquaintance.

Lonina and the acquaintance, Raymond Boyd Gates, 29, are both set to be arraigned in Franklin County court in Columbus, Ohio.

“The victim and the two defendants were socializing and at some point in the evening it is alleged that Gates forced sexual intercourse with the victim and Lonina started Periscoping (live-streaming in real time) the sexual assault,” according to a statement from Franklin County prosecutor Ron O’Brien.

The alleged attack took place in late February at a house in Columbus, and a county grand jury on Wednesday agreed to indict Lonina and Gates on several serious felony charges.”*
