Sadly there is no penalty available through the justice system that would actually provide true justice in a situation such as this.
True justice in such a case would allow the parents of the child at least an hour of unsupervised time with each individual involved in raping their
daughter, and absolute immunity from any charges being laid against them during such time.
After such time each individual will be sentenced in court for their crimes as adults, such sentencing must include mandatory prison time of no less
than 7 years with no option of reduced time or early parole. Upon completion of their sentence and release from prison each will be required by law
to register as a violent sex offender. Finally as a means to protect all potential victims of any community in which these individuals take up
residence, there will be no penalty for publicizing their names, their crimes, their images, and/or their current residences.
I believe that allowing the parents of the child to personally extract justice with absolute immunity, is a measure that will provide a substantial
benefit in the healing process for the victim/child. Parents are expected to protect their children from harm, they have a legal obligation to
protect their children from harm and can face legal consequences for neglecting to do so. The majority of children expect their parents to protect
them from harm, despite their typical rebellion against parental rules and actions to protect them, when they are hurt or scared they want and need to
know they can depend on their parents to protect them. Although the law prohibits a parent from extracting justice against the perpetrator of a
violent crime inflicted upon their child, on behalf of that child, as adults we understand that we must adhere to the law and legal system in such
situations, but children do not always have the maturity to follow that reasoning. Instead some children are left wondering why despite how deeply
upset their parents are over them being hurt, and how angry their parents are at the person who hurt them, their parents don't physically go and do
something to punish the person who hurt them, but instead hope that someone they don't even really know will do something.
On a final note, I found it outrageous that some residents suggested that the girl was in part responsible for what was done to her because she wore
makeup, looked older than she was or lacked parental supervision. Too bad the names of the residents who suggested this weren't published along with
their suggestions. If they actually think that anything justifies raping an 11 year old let alone gang raping an 11 year old as they suggested, they
have serious issues, such as some potentially using it to justify their own as yet undiscovered actions.
