I was reading the urban legends site snopes and couldn't believe this one. But according to a central Florida news site it is true.











Orlando police are searching for three people, including an 11-year-old, accused of kidnapping two women at gunpoint and raping them in a field, Local 6 News has learned.
Investigators said the trio abducted two women in October and then drove them to an area near the Crestview condominiums in MetroWest and raped them.


Rest of story here.

I am left speachless... An 11 year old rape suspect... I can't even believe that an 11 year old would even be thinking about sex, must less raping someone.

Hmmm, they're getting younger, eh?

I'm really not too surprised. Kids today know a lot more than i used to know at that age. I've come across some 11 year olds- one attempted to grope me, until i threatened to call his mother...


Its life these days and the way society is. I hope this one gets nabbed and given some rehab before he does more damage.

Why is this forum getting full of discussion about sex crimes? It's getting too much in my opinion. My question is, why is it necessary?

I am not the author, but sex crimes are abundant out there, everyday.

I am not sure i understand why you object to this story.


This thread isnt promoting anything. Please.

I have no idea *why* it is on ATS?

One of the reasons is that this did not happen years ago... not at this young of an age. There is something going on if children are beginning to commit all of these crimes. It would be nice to try to figure out why so as to prevent it.

The age for the first rapist was 11-13. 13 seems plausible. No-one said for sure that he was 11.

Why shouldn't it be on ATS?

While I feel this is not the appropriate forum for this story, since it isn't that current nor a major world issue, the issue is still an important social one that needs to be discussed because of the nature of the crimes and the ages of the perpretrators.

btw, I'll be moving this over to Social Issues in PTS for those who want to follow it.

SteveR, See the gripe button top left? You may use that if you beleive something is innapropriate or in bad taste.

Getting back to the subject, I think society as a whole, the way people are having to work, both mother and father for a living may have contributed to children being left unnatended, watching things on tv they shouldnt, and so on.
It would be nice to have the solution to this problem that does not seem to be getting any better. I certainly hope someone out there is studying this and make recommendations to parents to help prevent the perversion.

I think you answered your own question there, but I agree.

steve I think you miss the point, this topic could have remained here if it was really current and recieving major media coverage. And btw PTS and BTS are as much a part of the ATS domain as ATS itself. So perhaps instead of saying why is this in ATS, you should have said something like why is it in this "forum" if that was all you were opposed to.

Point taken.
Nice sig.


Just remember guys the age is subjective, looks like guesswork

Sadly this is not news in South Africa. Kids (boys) rape classmates at extremely young ages. It's horrifying. And to make it worse many cases are gang-rapes...

I have no idea how a 11 y.o. (or younger) boy would consider forcing himself on a female. Maybe it's the bad examples set on TV? Maybe that is the reason why family TV programs shouldn't show "soft porn"/sex scenes... Sex is all around us. We shouldn't be surprised if they want to find out what it's all about. But I think we're far past the point of no return if we were to decide to censor the planet again.

Boy 7, accused of rape (Article in middle of the page.)

Three boys, aged between seven and 11, allegedly raped a six-year-old girl

And these are to name just a random few...!

The high incidence of rape has a critical bearing on women's equality (Equality is of big importance in South Africa - and most modern countries).

Women are not free in our society. Women are not free from fear.
Girls are not free from the fear of assault in the school and in the home.

On a daily basis in schools across the nation, girls of every race and economic class encounter sexual violence and harassment.
Discrimination against girls based on gender perpetuates the educational gap between boys and girls.
The deeply buried beliefs and attitudes of men to women have to change.

There are two widespread myths about rape in our society.

Myth Number One: rape is committed by a small group of depraved and abnormal men. Wrong. A large class of normal boys and men commit rape.

Study after study has shown that men who rape are normal. But that does not mean that all men are rapists. It simply means that a tendency to rape is encouraged by an acceptance of gender inequality, the prevalence of pornography for men, and the degree of social disorganization in a community.

Rape is culturally dictated and not culturally deviant.

Myth Number Two: women ask to be raped. Wrong. Women ask to be valued and loved.

Boys and men are taught that power, dominance and violence can be arousing to girls and women. And when boys are young and inexperienced, they do not understand communicative sexuality, sexual pleasure and intimacy.

Instead boys and men look on rape as a form of shoplifting. They think they can simply take sex. Survey after survey has shown that our girls learn that coerced sex is the norm. Men know taking sex is wrong, but there is a gray area between consent and coercion. And they think, it is not such a serious harm. It is like shoplifting.

When life is hard and you are not likely to be caught, our boys and men think, why not?

It has to stop. 'Real men do not rape'. Real men think rape is the equivalent of murder. Real men do not think rape is a form of shoplifting.

Rape and murder are similar harms and they carry similar punishments under our law. Yet boys and men do not see rape as the equivalent of murder. And until boys and men do, we will continue to see the levels of abuse of women and children that exist at the moment.

I'm sad to say that rape amongst the black communities is a bigger problem than in white cultures (in South Africa) but not exclusive to black or coloured communities. Problem is most rape cases are not reported, thus the statistics are not a true reflection. No, I'm not a racist. These are the (distorted) facts.
SA Rape stats

This is a problem and no one is doing anything about it, except for some pointless add-campaigns. This is why tourists and outsiders fear South Africa.
