    Every single guy who stood there and did nothing should be charged. How incredibly ashamed their parents must be. And the guys who did it should def be charged as adults. In what sort of world do we live in that its okay to stand there why guys rape and hurt a girl? People complain about the middle east and parts of Africa being so bad, how are we any different from them? Maybe if we had harsher laws against sex offender crap like this wouldn't be happening.

    Shall they all be raped and hung? Yes, I think so.

    American rape culture always puts the victim in the blame

    The exact same thing just happened here in Nova Scotia, Canada. We demanded the RCMP reopen the case and charge the rapists (there was 4, 15 year old boys) and all those who bullied her!! RIP Rehtaeh Parsons and Audrie Pott|! What kind of world are we living in when people think this is ok to do??? Every single person who bullied these young beautiful innocent women should be held accountable for there actions!!!

    This is so heartbreaking. But when women are so often portrayed as objects - in music, videos, advertising etc, it is not surprising that we get treated like objects.

    One small correction Perez, this did not happen in San Francisco. I am a San Francisco resident and am very aware of this tragic story. This happened 75 miles south of San Francisco in a small suburb. It is important to note this so that you can convey to readers that this can happen anywhere- not just in a large city.

    this story is scary familiar to the recent incident on Nova Scotia, rape culture in western society needs to be change. The root of the problem starts at such an early age I wish parents would realize that they are the ones who need to help this change!



  8. 8

    This makes me feel sick to my stomach. The guys who did this to her can't be punished enough. May she rest in peace. And yes, I agree about victims are treated in North America. It needs to change.

    how about we teach teenage girls to not get so intoxicated they are unconscious! Hello PARENTS TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY - gimme me a break

    Re: really – You are incredibly stupid. THERE ARE NO REASONS TO RAPE SOMOEONE. NONE. Do you understand that? The boys who raped her are the ONLY ones who should be blamed. You know that most rapes happen to very sober women and girls?



  11. 11

    Re: really – Just because she drank so much she passed out gives guys the right to do what they want? You are a fucking idiot.

    The three pieces of shit that done that to that beautiful young girl need some WV justice. Take them to an old barn. Nail the little bastards dicks to the floor with rusty nailsand give em broken butter knives and set the barn on fire. See what kinda balls they have then the littledick bastards…someone will get revenge on them when their ra

    I doubt every time it is a rape. im sure somewhere their is a girl who lied after the fact realizing it was poor judgment because of the level of intoxication. before you hang them all the facts need to be checked!

    Re: Ashley
    ACTUALLY there was no rape in that case. The rape kit proved (from what I know) that no rape that occurred. If fact, she was always a "bad" kid -smoking, drinking, failing school etc. The fact that the media is displaying her as an "angel" is horrible. She committed suicide NOT because of the pictures (some even question is she was making that) but because her life was a wreck and needed something or someone to absorb the blame.
    The RCMP should not waste their time on this case because quite frankly there is no case.

    Also I never said she deserved to be raped, however had she been sober it may have been more difficult or not happened at all. when are American parents going to take some responsibility for their wild kids

    What is truly sad is the pics have been up for 6months. All the kids at school knew what happened even after her suicide and not one kid came forward….6mths. She was 15 and they put her pics on one site and called it slut shaming. The girl in Stubbenville …still alive …for now.

    Re: NoOne – In regards to the NS case, How dare you…Why do you think its ok to make those kind of remarks? A Vomiting drunk teen girl is not capable of giving consent to several boys to have sex with her. That kind of sex is called rape. These boys made public statements where they detailed the rape of an inebriated 15-year-old girl. Spreading photographic evidence of it as well. Completely disgusting.

  20. Ashley says – reply to this


    20

    Re: really – Wow where exactly do you get your information? She was raped and they reopened the case because more evidence came forward. If she wasn't raped then where did the new evidence come from? I feel so bad for you that you think that way. You think because she was a "bad" kid then it wasn't rape? WOW!!!!! You need to check yourself! You are the reason why boys think its ok to do this! she was raped and there will be justice one way or another!!!! Just ask Anonymous!!!! When your so drunk and throwing up you cannot consent to sex which therefore is is rape!!

    Re: really – Seriously do u even read what u are typing. Maybe if we taught our children when they see a girl who is clearly unconscious and cannot consent or defend herself to do the right thing like call somebody for her or take her to a room to sleep it off, not to rape her or allow others to violate her in some way. These boys are the ones who committed this crime, it is no ones fault but theirs. This poor girl was the victim. Shame on you for even thinking this way. I hope nothing like this happens to someone who you love, but if it did would you blame them too. Think about it.

    Re: really – You make me sick. 84% of women who are raped know their attacker. Teens get drunk at parties with their friends. Big deal. They don't expect people they know to do those kind of awful things to them! Yes, parents…lock up all your daughters and let your sons run wild. Girls shouldn't be allowed to do what they want just in case some guys can't control themselves! Teach your daughters not to trust anybody since so many girls who are raped know the person! Wtf? You're a moron.

    25

    Re: really – this could have happened had she been sober. you know nothing about how this family raised their daughter. At 15 teenagers most teenagers are a little rebellios and want to try drinking etc. It's all around them at parties. This many have been the first time she was exposed to alcohol and didn't know her limits. This doesn't have anything to do with her or her parents. all blame lies with the rapists.

  26. Suthernbeauty86 says – reply to this


    26

    Re: really – Also it is people like you and that think like you that rape or any kind of sexual assault is one of the least reported or even maybe the least reported crimes. There is already shame and humiliation evolved in these cases and then to have so many ignorant people continue to blame the victim instead of the person who committed the crime is disgusting. The victim is never to blame. Those boys raped an unconscious girl, taped it, took pictures, and then bullied her and bragged about it. And you are putting the blame on her. It's sick that people really think like you.

    Re: really – I'm guess you are a closet molly rapist.



  33. 33

    Beyond disgusting, I hope anyone involved is tried as an adult and made an example of. This is by no means the girls' fault for trying alcohol, kids will be kids. Girls know your limits and keep good friends around if you consume alcohol, watch out for each other. There are predators waiting for you to get too drunk.



  34. 34

    These dumb ass kids who kill themselves are making me sick. They must be spoiled to not be able to handle life.

    Re: kAMINO
    This is more of a problem in America than in most parts of Africa. The highest percentage of rape in Africa is in South Africa, a western country. I am a volunteer at an HIV positive orphanage in Uganda. If a woman or girl is raped here it is street justice and the person is beaten to death. Rape is considered one of the worst things you can do. A guy in the town where I lived recently drugged a white girl with the intention of raping her. It was done by a WHITE person from Ireland. Most African's don't even know what GHB is let alone would even contemplate drugging a girl in order to rape her. Know your facts, the country with the highest rape on the entire continent is where all the mzungus live!

    i went to junior high @ 9yrs old,i was really brilliant and the youngest in the whole school,everybody in my class hated me and was seriously bullied by my mates. my parents had to get me outta there coz i suddenly started failin everything,i kept askin Godto take my lyf coz i cant take it anymore. you can imagine how the poor girl must have felt,i hope they r brought to justice



  37. 37

    Re: really – How about we teach boys not to take advantage of intoxicated girls? The blame shouldn't all go the the perpetrators? Um, actually it should. Nobody has the right to touch or rape anyone no matter the situation.
    There are people who get raped in every situation. At parties, at school, walking home, in your own home, with friends, with family, sober, not sober, during the day, late at night, dressed sexy, dressed casually. The things that stays the same is they get sexually assaulted. So it sounds to me the problem is the rapists, not the victims.
    And yes, underage drinking is wrong. But that is not the point. That's getting away from the point, the point is that people need to stop raping and people need to stop sympathizing with the rapists.

    Re: really
    Raise our *boys* to act like *MEN* and to know that if someone is unable to give full, and understandable consent, NOT to have sex with them!!!! I seriously hope you're not a parent yet, esp a son. And if you had/have a daughter and she becomes ebebriated or passes out (face it! As a parent of an 18 y.o. girl, kids are going to experiment!) at a party, and the same unthinkable thing were to happen to her? I hope and pray you don't make her feel any worse or ashamed by blaming her.

    Re: sick world
    I am so sorry for what you have been through, and what you continue to live through. The effects of rape last much longer than that ONE night/day can last a life time.
    I hope you are able to overcome and be able to live your life once again!

    Re: really
    I don't know much about this case, but I can say without fear of being mistaken, you are an idiot. There is no excuse for the rape of anyone, at any time, at any age, in any condition, ever, ever, ever.
    These "boys" should be prosecuted as adults as should all who witnessed or knew of the assault and did nothing.

    Re: pollopicu – Fuck off. Suicide is not limited to spoiled kids. People of all ages and backgrounds kill themselves because they are depressed(among other reasons, but typically some level of depression is the cause.) Depression can make you think of yourself more, but it is not from being spoiled. Depression is a mental illness, there is something in your brain not working correctly. People don't even always realize they're depressed. Just like having a cold or the flu, it is NOT your fault, the symptoms are just there and you need to seek medical care. Unfortunately this doesn't always happen, which can result in things like this. Don't be an ignorant, uncompassionate asshole.

    My mom was on jury duty a couple days ago, I know it isn't the same thing but a couple streets from where I live there were these 2 15 year old boys dropping their girlfriends off to their homes & when the boys were going home, they were hit by a man who ran a red light to get away from the police before because he was caught with weed, $229 in his pocket & vodka in the car with him! The 2 boys died & it was just so heartbreaking to hear about this. I hope that they are loooking down on their families from heaven, my prayers & thoughts go out to them & those 2 girls in this article & those boy's gfs.

    The number of people jumping to conclusions and slamming these young boys is pretty shocking to me. They have not yet been tried, but people seem so… certain that they're guilty. Let's stop and think for a moment - after all, violence against women has always been a social taboo, to the point where if you are even accused of it you carry a stigma wherever you go, for the rest of your life. Just look at what you're all doing here: this article doesn't comment on any evidence that's been used in court (we don't actually see any of the evidence), and there has been no judgement, but the mere IDEA that a boy could have harmed a girl has everybody up in a tizzy calling them "worse than animals" and calling for vicious and unnecessarily brutal punishments.

    A number of people have commented that these boys should have been raised better, to know that rape is wrong. My question is: what kind of person, in America right now, thinks there isn't anything wrong with rape? I know you all know it, but why would you jump to the conclusion that a group of young boys doesn't understand that as well? Does it make you feel better or special in some way to be morally better than the accused boys?

  69. juststop says – reply to this


    69

    It would have been unconscionably stupid for these boys to have raped a girl and not seen anything wrong with it. It would have been even more stupid for them to have done it, seen something wrong with it, and then posted pictures of it on the internet.

    Something doesn't add up, and given that there was no actual evidence given in this article, and that we have no evidence ourselves, I think people should just stop the witch hunt, stop commenting on "rape culture" and should probably wait for some real judgment to be passed before being so ready to ruin the lives of three 15 year old boys.
