I live about 20 miles from Erie, but don't watch the TV much anymore so I missed this until it was relayed to me today. It actually occurred about a week ago, but the article dates are fresh.

All I can say is this is even more disturbing than the girls that videod that beat down earlier this week.

www.goerie.com.../20080409/NEWS02/804090377/-1/NEWS -- Can't get this link to 'stick' either. I'm guessing it's their website... I mean, c'mon... it's Erie!

"They started stomping on my head and legs," she said from her hospital bed at Hamot Medical Center. "I couldn't do anything."

Rikki said she and her sister, Nikki, 8, were at the playground when two girls approached. One splashed Nikki with a cup of water.
"'Leave her alone,'" Rikki said she told the girls from her perch on the monkey bars.
She said the girls then turned their attention to her. They splashed her with water, she said, then pulled her from the monkey bars. Once she was on the ground, Rikki said, the girls kicked her in the head and stomped on her.
Adults, apparently passers-by, approached. The girls retreated, leaving Rikki helpless on the ground.






Excerpt from goerie.com (link woudn't 'stick' here for some reason... above should work)
But he said he believes the girl, who is accused of conspiring with an 11-year-old to assault 10-year-old Rikki Triana, "is too emotionally young to know what is going on" in the criminal case against her, which would be tried in Juvenile Court.

The girls face charges of aggravated assault, simple assault and conspiracy. Erie police accused them of breaking Rikki's right hip by stomping on her at the Pfeiffer-Burleigh playground, at East 12th and Holland streets, at about 7 p.m. April 3.

Rikki Triana, the victim, a newly enrolled student at Pfeiffer-Burleigh, was treated initially at Hamot Medical Center, where surgeons inserted three pins to repair her shattered right hip.

Rikki was transported by ambulance Wednesday from Hamot to Erie Shriners Hospital for Children, where she will continue to undergo rehabilitation on her broken hip. Doctors have told the family that Rikki likely will be at Shriners for at least a week while she undergoes intense therapy.

How desensitized are kids getting? Do parents not teach "the golden rule" anymore?

I'm disgusted by reports like this.

There is a DIRECT link between child violence and their homelife. The parents of these children should be hauled in and put away.

You won't see a child act violent who doesn't feel insecure about something at home. It just doesn't happen. I guarntee you that these children have been beat, not punished, but beat at home.

All of this is a drect result of lack of involvement in kids lives. It's just a shame.

Where were the parents of Rikki? I don't care how safe you think a place is for children my kids are never left alone and Me or their mother is close by. And if I were an adult and came upon that scene I guarantee you those girls would of been held until the police got there. People don't step in anymore and do what's right. And I noticed something the other day where I live and have to see what you all think. I'm driving through my whole neighborhood and it's a beautiful day. The temperature was 76 and sunny but I didn't see a single child outside playing or parents outside.


Is television, video games & computers keeping everyone inside? Just to note, we moved to this neighborhood two months ago and that's why on this nice day I would drive around and see the neighbors. The sad thing was that no one was out and about.
