Police: Gang rape outside school dance lasted over two hours

Get angry about this! It still does happen in the United States. Here’s a rundown of the facts:

  • 15-year-old girl gang raped for two and a half hours outside a school dance in San Francisco, CA (10-24-09)
  • victim raped by at least four suspects committing multiple sex acts
  • victim was found unconscious and “brutally assaulted” under a bench
  • victim had to be flown to an area hospital where she was listed in critical condition before stabilizing on Monday
  • as many as 15 people, all males, stood around watching the assault, but did not call police or help the victim

Do you find yourself asking the question, “Why did they do it?” There is no “why” great enough to justify this level of violence and hatred. There is no excuse!

Do not scare your daughters with this news; tell them to get angry! Collective anger is the best medicine for abuse. And tell your sons to get angry too. Tell them that this unsympathetic power-mongering WILL NOT BE TOLERATED!

    OMG it’s like “The Accused” only worse because it’s high schoolers. I want to know where the a dults where because you know this was loud and boys were telling other boys. WTF?! I am pissed! If I was a mother of one of those boys, rapist or watcher, I would beat the crap out of him.

    The tally is now up to 20. And according to a new CNN article, 10 boys/men may have been involved in the assault while 10 others watched. But California law does not allow police to arrest those who were only onlookers. It is likely that the 10 who “just” watched will go largely unpunished.

    It’s surprising how loose the CA laws are. Don’t even get me started on the stalking laws. But if they get a good prosecutor, he or she will find something to charge the boys with, loitering, underage drinking, something. They love making examples of people, and this is just the case to do it.
