RICHMOND, Calif. — Police believe as many as a dozen people watched a 15-year-old girl get beaten and gang-raped outside her high school homecoming dance without reporting it. The San Jose Mercury News reports that onlookers laughed, took pictures and even joined in the crime. Two suspects were in custody Monday, but police said as many as five other men attacked the girl over a two-hour period Friday night outside Richmond High School. “She was raped, beaten, robbed and dehumanized by several suspects who were obviously OK enough with it to behave that way in each other’s presence,” Lt. Mark Gagan said. “What makes it even more disturbing is the presence of others. People came by, saw what was happening and failed to report it.” Read the rest of this disturbing story here: Police: People Watched Gang Rape Of Teen And Did Nothing To Help SOURCE: Huffingtonpost.com
Time and time again, I wonder what comes over the male species to commit such an act. I personally think this act is far worse than murder. Rape survivors have to live with that horrible memory for the rest of their lives. It is one of the most evil things men do. No one helped but instead took pictures? Wow! What is happening to our “men”?! I just pray that the victim will survive this ordeal in the best possible way.
