The Varsity Rape Team

Posted on | September 7, 2014 | 24 Comments

Angel Mario Vega, 23, is a varsity wrestler for Minnesota State University-Moorhead and also, according to police, a rapist:

Vega’s roommate reportedly told police he and Vega had invited the two women over for drinks, and they became intoxicated after playing some drinking games and losing to the men.
Four other students on the floor told police that Vega came over and asked them to “see something crazy.” In the lounge area, they saw the victim was lying topless on the couch, clearly intoxicated, they told police.
The students told police Vega said he was going to take her back to his room and “get laid,” and saw him dragging her back to his room. Concerned, they called floor security. . . .
Police found several items of women’s clothing in Vega’s room, along with the victim’s student identification card.
A search warrant executed on Vega’s dorm room also turned up his cellphone, on which a detective found a photo of the half-unclothed woman on the lounge couch, court documents state. The video shows Vega forcing the woman to have sex, according to court documents.
In an interview with a Moorhead detective, Vega allegedly admitted he gave the victim Fireball whiskey, despite knowing she was only 18.

Why did this particular crime merit is own Memeorandum thread? Do a search (“rape + arrest”) in Google News and you realize that there is never a shortage of sex crimes that bloggers could comment about, e.g., “Juvenile arrested in Alexandria rape case.”

All rapes are not created equal, however. University campuses have become the focus of a feminist campaign against “rape culture” recently, which means that a varsity wrestler who rapes a drunk freshman in a university dorm is deemed more newsworthy than a 17-year-old who rapes a 43-year-old at a party in Alexandria, Virginia. Or the case in Ohio where DNA solved a 1996 rape.

Some perpetrators, some victims, some crimes are simply more important than others, according to the priorities of the progressive blogosphere. Gang rape in Afghanistan? Not worth blogging about. Man rapes a 15-year-old runaway in Tulsa? Of no political consequence. Woman raped on a Greyhound bus in Tennessee?

Don’t bother progressive bloggers with such trivial incidents. No, the online Left only cares about rape when the perpetrators and victims are students and the crime takes place on campus, because this is relevant to feminist rhetoric about “rape culture.”

Varsity wrestlers raping female students on university campuses — that’s important news, right? Except sometimes it’s not:

LAURINBURG [North Carolina] — Two St. Andrews University wrestlers have been charged with the rape of a fellow student during a party on campus last weekend.
Jemson Villard, 21, and Janicento Williamson, 20, were arrested Thursday, according to Laurinburg Assistant Police Chief Cliff Sessoms. They are each being held in the Scotland County jail under a $30,000 bond for charges of first degree rape and first degree sexual offense.
According to Sessoms, the rape was reported by an 18-year-old St. Andrews University student early Saturday morning, who told police she was assaulted while at a party held on campus. Sessoms said police responded to Scotland Memorial Hospital at 1:10 a.m., where the teenager had been driven by a friend.
Alcohol was a factor, Sessoms said. Police have not released any details about the arrests.
According to the website for St. Andrews University athletics, Villard and Williamson are both on the university’s wrestling team.

Progressive bloggers didn’t notice that story, for some reason. And they don’t care about lesbian coaches molesting girls, either.

    The significance of that particular case is that there seems to be actual evidence that law enforcement considered sufficient to move forward rather than the He said she said that campus have been running with.

    I think it would be valuable to contrast this to those other cases because due process and evidence is the standard hat should be used.

    I for one am shocked and appalled to be a member of the male sex to find out how many others of my kind would have “sex” with a passed out female.

    “actual evidence that law enforcement considered sufficient”
    Thank God this moron was abjectly stupid enough to take self incriminating photos and to publicly announce ” HEY EVERYONE, I’M GONNA DO THAT PASSED OUT CHIC.”
    Also thank God other good folk called the cops on that degenerate.

    On the other hand, the passed out chick was under the legal drinkinng age still accepted alcohol from a strange man in his room; Darwin anyone?

    I think this will be dropped when they realize that it is racist to arrest a Hispanic for the rape of a white woman. Also of no import in the press are rapes by blacks of whites and rapes of whites by Muslims.

    Some men are scum. Consider, however, what real men would do to this scum if they were not restrained by the legal system.

    They would do exactly what was done in the “wild west.” They’d drop what they were doing and run the miscreant to earth. If said perp survived teh capture, he’d be the guest of honor at a necktie party.

    You didn’t molest women or Kids in the “wild west” unless you had a death wish.

    There a lot of wrong in the narrative here. Not the least of which is the stupidity of the victim to place herself in danger in the first place.

    I always wondered how that could be remotely appealing. Of course, I’m naturally used to them singing paeans to the Heavenly Host regarding the magnificence that is my presence, so maybe others have different standards.

    It’s not, but stupidity brings its own punishment. You can learn from other folks mistakes, or learn the hard way. The girl isn’t to blame for the creep’s actions. But she’s suffering the consequences none the less- better to not become a victim.

    Black athletes raping white co-eds. The girls’ stupid parents didn’t explain the world to them. Avoid blacks.

    Years ago back when “Chuckles” was relevant, his sock puppets used to go to sites like this and make racist comments so Chucky could call the host a RACIST for leaving a rotten comment up.
    That was the first thought I had when I read your comment.

    Which is probably why the “wild west” wasn’t terribly wild. Funny how knowing your actions could result in some pretty dire consequences for you tends to keep people in line. The whole “an armed society is a polite society” thing. When you know your neighbor is armed – or has forearms the size of small trees – you aren’t going to do something to piss that guy off (like molest his daughter or rape his sister).

    She was foolish to the max for exposing herself that way. That in no way diminishes the guilt of the perpetrator
