Earlier I was going through the news. This is what I found. 20 arrests hav been made in the gang rape of an 11 year old girl. The report said that 20 men ranging from 14 to 27 raped this girl repeatly. It also said that there was at least 20 more people standing there and watching what was going on. It was recorded on tape the entire thing.
It was long ago that another young girl was also gang rape behind a school. Several people were arrested in that case as well.
This is my main issue after the scumbags have been put behind bars. Is the onlookers. How can anyone just stand by and watch this happen to anyone? What is wrong with people? They both were just babies.
I hope the people who stood there and watched should be charged as well. How does eveyone else feel about this?

@Liz Not as far as I know. It was several guys ones who started it and then ones that just showed up. Normally gangs start and end together and no one else gets involved.
The 15 year old had started drinking with friends behind the school during a school dance. When she was attacked by several guys including the ones she trusted. A lot of people saw it going on and didn't do anything. The only diffeence was a girl did run home and called the police and told them to hurry. She explained that the reason she went home and did it was because of the area she lived. Snitches don't live long.

How could they just stand by and do nothing? Yes the onlookers should be charged.

Why is she in a foster home now? Why was she taken from her parents?
I don't get that part of it, her family moved because the police said they were in danger, and yet the daughter has been placed in foster care... why??
So sad all around.

By standers who do nothing while watching a crime should be held accountable for the crime. I don't care if his dick never touched her baby skin, his dick (and all the other dicks standing there watching) may as well have been doing the raping, because just standing there while a child is raped is just as bad as doing the raping.
Disgusting fucks.
They should all do time, they should all be charged and they should all suffer because of it.
Disgusting fucks, oh right I already said that.

This should fall under Good Samaritan laws, right? If that state has them anyways. It is disgusting that someone would just stand by and not do anything. This is a child!!

It is a crime to watch/record illegal activity and not report it. In my home town people who made a video of people hooning in their cars and distributed it were charged for not reporting a crime when the police got hold of it.

Absolutly JuLeah. It is the truest statement in the world. I have seen that movie a few times. I also watched interviews with the cast. All the men who had to potray what had happened. They said it was the hardest thing they ever had to do. They were friends and even though they were just acting it was difficult to do.

Have you seen the movie "Accused"? Jodie Foster ... anyway, based on a true story and deals with this issue.

You are part of the solution, or part of the problem.

The person who does nothing is just as guilty as the person who committed the crime.

That I amnot sure about. All the report said is that there was around 15 to 20 people who stood and watch this girl being raped by several guys and no one step in o help. They just watched.

So the onlookers were not part of the group just random people who happen to be there ?

They onlookers were watching it happen. The report also said that it started with a few guys but more joined in. They have almost everyone on tape.

Yeah it amazing how selfish people are. Everyone expects people to bend over for them but they are too good to help someone else.

Hopefully that is not the case. I wish people just cared enough to 1. not do such monstrosities 2. care enough not to stand around and let them happen 3. give sentences / consequences equal to the crime...... but even that sometimes is wishful thinking.

I'm always always on a day to day basis shocked by how uncaring everyone is. Right?

I am worried that they won't all be prosecuted. And the ones that are I ope they get a very long jail sentence. I am concerned that the onlookers will walk away scott free with no consequences.

Hmmmmm.. nope. just says people watched, and people were charged. I assumed the rapers not the onlookers. I thought you were complaining the onlookers should also be charged??

I just threw up swollowed it and puked again......... what the hell. Usuaully when you watch a crime that bad be committed, they do press charges against you too. So that's aweful they aren't going after people who saw what happened too. It might depend on state and city laws though. I know someone where we used to live got raped, beat up and dropped on the side of the road. She tried asking for help but no one would stop or even call. She ended up walking somewhere to get help (but it was on a hill!!!!!!!!!!) so they passed a law that says anyone who sees something like that and doesn't report it can get in trouble. It's aweful
