The rape charges are for statutory rape, meaning she was underaged.
It wasn't the violent type of rape that we are all soo familiar with.
That's probably why they showed the footage to her, because it didn't affect her emotionally, she wanted the sex and got it.
^this. essentially, what is illegal does not necessarily equate to what is morally wrong. people seem to be confusing the two in this thread.
to assume she was incapable because of this law alone is mindless. all I'm saying.

Logic doesn't involve stating one position. It involves looking at all of them. Just thought I should point that out.

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.

Pack of animals indeed.

Because according to the GOP platform, that girl shouldn't have a choice over getting rid of that child if she were pregnant.
Because traumatized 11 year old girls should be having babies and then be able to raise them without welfare assistance.

The choke pear (or pear of anguish) is the modern name for a type of instrument displayed in some museums, consisting of a metal body (usually pear-shaped) divided into spoon-like segments that could be spread apart by turning a screw. The museum descriptions and some recent sources assert that the devices were used either as a gag, to prevent people from speaking, or as an instrument of torture. The instrument was inserted into the victim's mouth, and then slowly spread apart as the screw was turned.
