Police: Gang rape outside school dance lasted over two hours


www.cnn.com

A California high school student who police said was gang raped in a two-and-a-half-hour assault outside a homecoming dance remained hospitalized in stable condition Monday

Investigators said as many as 15 people, all males, stood around watching the assault, but did not call police or help the victim, a 15-year-old student at Richmond High School in suburban San Francisco.

"As people announced over time that this was going on, more people came to see, and some actually participated," Gagan said.

"This just gets worse and worse the more you dig into it," Gagan said. "It was like a horror movie after looking at t

WHAT??????

What in the world is happening to values?

Remember when that Iraqi father ran over his daughter for being westernized?

People here said in response "If he doesn't like it here then why doesn't he leave?"

That's the problem, people keep saying that and these same people don't care about the lack of values that kids are getting these days.

People were just looking at the gang rape, nobody called the police but instead some decided to participate!!!!

Doesn't this sound alot like the rapes going on in South Africa?
Everyone thought it was so odd and out of this world that many of the men say they consider rape a form of male bonding.

Really? Out of this world?
No, in fact only in your own backyard!!!

I sincerely think it's high time to stop looking at people criticizing your in-country surroundings and instead try to understand what they are talking about.

Everyone says "If they don't like it they should leave"

Nobody says, "hey they are right, underage sex is so common on TV right now and everyday life, this isn't the america i grew up in, where are the family values"

How long will this way of thinking last?

How horrible! I can't believe no one helped her. Standing around, watching, and doing nothing is just as bad as joining in the rape. They all should be punished for this.

Man that is truly awful if true. I went to school, with people who wanted to put me in prison to be raped, because i was not interested in females. So i kind of know what that feels like.

Pure ffing scum people occupy the world today.

The police of course are probably friends of the people who did it, so they get a great award and applause. Microsoft will probably give them a free copy of windows 7 knowing americas moral standards.

What a lovely bunch of people. Standing around watching someone be raped viciously into unconsciousness.

I swear to whatever is holy that if any son of mine was involved, even if it was "just watching" he'd never come home because I would beat the lively snot out of him if I ever got my hands on him.

What is your problem with America?

Are you saying this doesn't happen in other countries?

Rape is disgusting period. These guys need to be hung by their you know what and left hanging for the world to see. The ones watching and enjoying this horrible incident need to be put in jail with some lifers and see how they like the other end of the stick.

These sort of stories that tell how young adults are getting out of control, are now becoming very common news stories.

These people are incredably bad, and will im sure suffer a very serious penalty, but the commonality is only heading one way I'm sorry.

I dont think from the governments point of view we are shouting loud enough to them for help. This help im talking about is when something so bad is happening and our only answer is to ask for the governments to crack down on it, and belive me they will at some point.

The are allowing certain parts of society to fall way below our level of civility, and when the come to answer our calls for help, look out. It will be hard, harsh and quick, and we will lose far more of our private lifes than we think we are losing now.

Terrible story though, i just cant believe it. I got a daughter and to think this sort of thing happens, is not good.

If I had a son that participated or watched I would disown him. I hope they find all the people involved and keep them in jail.

Unbelievable.

I can't even express my anger at something like this happening. "WHAT IF THAT WAS YOUR DAUGHTER!" Is the only thought running through my head.

Everyone, the rapists and the bystanders need to be put in jail for the maximum.

Other reports stated that onlookers laughed

I guess these youths get a good chuckle outta seeing someone get raped eh?


Also of interest is that this is one of those schools which appears in a feel-good movie...


Richmond came into the media in 1999 due to the actions taken by basketball coach Ken Carter. Carter, a former Richmond student himself, cancelled all scheduled games and practices of the undefeated team in an unprecedented move due to fifteen of his players having unacceptably poor academic performance. Heavily criticised initially by students, parents, teachers and the media, he was then praised due to his emphasis on further education.
This media story was also the focal point of the 2005 film Coach Carter starring Samuel L. Jackson which gives a storylined account of Carter's time managing the team with the main focal point being on the "lock-out."


Here is even more information about the school

How about someone contrast and compare this thread with the one about reporting suspicious activity and how it's Orwellian.

I think there is a huge difference between "Report any suspicious behavior" and "Report anyone being victimized".

I think all would agree that it is in fact not orwellian to report anyone being victimized.


Leaving the definition of "Suspicious" up to the masses however is a much different story.

What are you talking about modern academia?
The good old Muslim Asians in my neck of the woods run a local prostitution ring and download porn at the college campus. Not saying they are any worse than anybody else but please don't try to imply they are better. This is not a thread about race though it seems you are trying to make it so.

those stats are overwhelming
I strongly feel wrong saying this
But, I feel like schools shouldn't allow that much of an ethnical majority
but that's just opening a massive can of worms
Of course I wouldn't support such an initiative
It's just the first thing that comes to mind when looking at those numbers
It just "feels" wrong

He's not... the other day lots of people blamed the actions of a person on their cultural ethnicity... and he is simply stating the stuff happens everywhere..

People always try to laugh when i say that most people do not know right from wrong when they are born into this world.

If the area is overwhelmingly populated with one group, and that group has more children, then that is who is in the schools.

I would imagine that it says less about the ethnicity, than the fact that these boys are apparently think that it is okay and that their parents will protect them even if they are rotten SOBs.

That's a cultural-familial thing. Your baby boy maims kittens, and you go "people just don't understand his pressures."

There is something seriously broken in that community. And it starts with the parents when it is that prevalent.

These boy-men think that their fathers and mothers will love and protect them - they do not think that their parents will HOLD THEM TO A STANDARD. And they are probably right.

So these four guys lie to rape huh? instead of being beat up or being sent to jail, how about those four are thrown in a locked room, one by one, with a crazy rapist for two hours so THEY can know what it feels like to be in the position of the poor girl? After that, they should be executed, I do not care if they are teenagers/young adults.

Only two crimes in my mind deserve the most gruesome death penalty; rape and murder done for no reason whatsoever.

All the people who were standing around doing nothing, throw them in a room with 3 people so they can get the snot beaten out of them, one by one, with a big group of prisoners watching and laughing at the stupid person being beaten up. THIS would teach them how it feels to get no help when one needs it the most.

seriously, the stupidity of some members of the younger generation make me sick
