Protesters React to New Website

STEUBENVILLE, Ohio -

At the Occupy Steubenville rally Saturday, Jefferson County Sheriff Fred Abdalla responded to allegations that his department should have done more to bring justice to the alleged victim. Remember that this case falls within the jurisdiction of the Steubenville police. 7News asked protesters if they'll check out the city's newly released website.

"I saw it three days ago, we were aware that there was a video like that, the Steubenville police department had that video since August. It's a disgusting video," said Abdalla when questioned about when he saw the video that contains young men joking about the alleged rape.

"Hopefully they can get something done," said Brandon, a protester. I mean the attorney general's office needs to step in and hopefully more justice can be served by them."

"I'm glad they have, I think a lot of it is that nothing's been said for so long," said Lindsey, another protester. "The community is just frustrated."

"We don't know, we don't know what's been said and what's not been said," said Marsha, a protester at the rally. "But we hope that those officials are doing their job, and that justice does come."

That website is SteubenvilleFacts.org. The two juveniles that have been charged will stand trial on February 13.
