An 18-year-old woman who used a social media app to livestream the alleged rape of her 17-year-old friend was indicted along with another man by a grand jury on several charges including rape and kidnapping, an Ohio prosecutor said Wednesday.
The case came to light when authorities were contacted after an out-of-state friend of the accused woman saw the images, Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O'Brien said.

An 18-year-old Ohio woman has been indicted on charges she used the social media app Periscope to live-stream her own friend’s rape.
Marina Alexveena Lonina and Raymond Boyd Gates, 29, were indicted on charges of kidnapping, two counts of rape, one count of sexual battery and several counts of pandering sexually oriented material involving a minor, The Columbus Dispatch reported.
O'Brien said it's the first case he's aware of in the county in which an alleged crime was live-streamed.

Truly awful...the iGen vapidly waiting for validation in the form of 'likes' while a friend is raped.
Mr. O’Brien, the prosecutor, said Ms. Lonina had apparently hoped that live-streaming the attack would help to stop it, but that she became enthralled by positive feedback online.
“She got caught up in the likes,” he said.
In an interview on Monday, Mr. O’Brien acknowledged that for roughly 10 seconds during the 10-minute video Ms. Lonina pulled the leg of the victim, who he said cried out during the attack saying “no,” “stop” and “help me.” It was not clear though that she intended to help the victim, he said.

Social media at fault?
"Since Twitter introduced Periscope last spring, it has been used for more than 100 million broadcasts. Perhaps inevitably, people have also deployed it to showcase themselves breaking the law. The platform’s guidelines ban “explicit graphic content.” "
Can we blame the technology itself? SM users at their worst?
ETA: Seems like recording on phone would 'preserve the evidence' of the crime, but why not call 911 (too)?
