15-Year-Old Beaten and Gang Raped for 2 Hours After Homecoming Dance

I just heard about a story out of Richmond, CA that really made my blood boil. On Saturday, a 15-year-old girl was beaten and gang raped for 2 hours after she left her school’s homecoming dance. After leaving the Richmond High School homecoming dance around 9:30 P.M. to get a ride home with her father, the girl ended up meeting up with some kids on the school campus who were drinking.

Richomnd Police Lieutenant Mark Gagan told reporters, “The series of events that occurred over the next two and a half hours got more severe and more vicious to where she was ultimately gang raped, beaten and her injuries were so severe that she had to be sent to the hospital in a helicopter.”  The victim is still in the hospital, currently in stable condition.

There’s been some controversy over whether or not the school is safe.  After being asked by reporters if he thought the school was safe, one male student said, “No it’s not. Not at night time.”  Charles Ramsey, a Richmond school board member disagreed, saying, “It is a safe school, 95 percent of the students here perform well, do what they’re expected to do, but do we have a part of the campus element here that is out of control?  Yes.  We do understand and are not putting our head in the sand around the fact that Richmond has a lot of issues and problems in terms of safety.”

The school district spokesman, Marin Trujillo said, “There’s just so much control that one can do after that, once they leave the sidewalk we can’t follow them home,” regarding the safety of the homecoming dance.

Since the attack, 2 arrests have been made: a 15-year-old student, as well as a 19-year-old former student, Manuel Ortega, who was caught as he tried to flee the scene of the crime.

Gagan said that police arrived as the 2+ hour-long rape was still taking place, and that “we’re looking at four to seven active participants of sexual assault and extremely violent felonies.  We’re also suspecting there were up to a dozen people who witnessed what had happened and their involvement is unknown.”

The 15-year-old male was arrested after being pulled from class for questioning.  Another student was pulled out of class for questioning, but was released.

What I’d like to know is how the heck could 12 people stand by and watch this happen?  What kind of sick twisted person wouldn’t call the police!  The people who joined in and raped and attacked this girl need to be arrested and locked up for the rest of their lives.  I would argue that they should probably be given the death penalty, considering how heinous of a crime this was, but the death penalty isn’t an option in rape cases any more.  But they should certainly be locked up for the rest of their lives.  A crime this heinous and disgusting deserves a harsh punishment.

And while those who watched may not be charged with any crime (depending on whether or not they cheered it on, they could possibly be charged as conspirators or accomplices in the crime), they need to take a look at themselves and ask, “What the heck is wrong with me?”  How could you sit by and let something like this happen to a 15-year-old girl!  What’s wrong with you!

It’s stories like these that make me begin to lose hope in humanity. When 4-7 people gang rape a girl, and 12 people sit around and watch, there’s something wrong with what’s going through our children’s heads.  I don’t know what, but something needs to be done.  Sitting by and watching something like this is unacceptable, and the people who watched this rape are should have to live with a whole lot of guilt for the rest of their lives.  I hope they realize how despicable it was for them to just sit by and watch.

And I hope the other attackers are caught and arrested.  My thoughts and prayers are with the victim of this attack – hopefully she recovers soon, but I have no doubt that she will be mentally scarred for years to come.

UPDATE: Somebody from Newsy, a video news website asked me to embed their story covering the gang rape:

    This is horrible indeed. I don’t understand how people could do something like that.

    However, while the crime was horrible to be sure, you must remember that this was one incident in a country with 307 million people. I don’t think anything like this has happened anywhere in my home state Colorado that I can remember. So, while this is heinous to say the least, don’t lose faith in humanity. For every gang rape there is like this, there are hundreds of couples in healthy relationships where the man is respectful to the women.

    My prayers go to the girl of course.

    It is a shame that the officas from this school are so dam blind that the school is a seriuos death trap, this girl should have had protection. No student should be able to leave the grounds unless a parent comes and claims the kid. Point blank it is time to treat high school like a daycare. When school gets out from anything go sign your child out. You will have the comfort then that your child is safe. The school should be held accountable and every person watched should be arressted and all convicted. This girl has now lost her life, she will never be the same. How sick and mean and ill are these people to allow that to happen. The Father should sue the hell out of the school and each one of the attckers and also those that watched.

    There is never any discussion how gang rapes are carried out almost entirely by minorities. The biggest threat to all of society is the young or teenage black or hispanic male. No discussion is ever allowed, therefore no solutions or prevention methods will be found. This will continue on.

    What makes this even more terrifying is that in only about 30 years the most law abiding race, Whites, will be a minority, and such thuggery was we have see this week will worsen exponentially and no one will be able to stop it. It will look like Africa or Central America in the United States–and EVERYONE’S lives will be in danger. If we can’t talk about the race factor TODAY, the liberals can just say goodbye to any of their fly-by-night ideas of “peace”. They are even the source of the problem for preventing people from talking about the truth.

    mexicans are raping women and babies all the time in the us , it just gets buried by the media.
    This was a hate crime against a white female. but it will never be acknowledged.
    by the way, she will never get over this , and her life has truly been ruined. Most likely she will become an addict , get arrested, become criminialized, or commit suicide.
    I almost wanted it to be a black woman because then I knew the mexicans would be raped or murdered in prison. I realized later that it shows what I think of white men in the US, you just cant count on them for anything.

    This is white genocide. We are cowards. Our heros have already died. The community will never convict these criminals. They encourage and support this genocide. We must claim the right to self defense. The alternative is to die.

    Maybe the people standing by and watching were republicans. They seem to be into it if it is a corporation.

How can people be so DAMN stupid? its ok, because God knows who the onlookers are and what goes around comes around, and it WILL come around to them to them!!! as for the little boys who did this they WILL be found and thrown in jail for a really long time so i hope they booty in check cuz when the lights go it’ll be their sellmates TOY!! and that would be exaxctly what they deserve!

    Don’t take this the wrong way, but you seem to have a rather rose colored view of humanity, if any of this surprised you.
