READING, WRITING & RAPE: 2 People Arrested, Up to 20 Involved in Gang Rape of 15 Year Old Girl Outside Richmond, CA High School Home Coming Dance
WTF!!! What is going on in our schools … Reading, Writing and Rape.
Some stories just offend every sensibility of our human nature that it is impossible to be objective. The following is one of those heinous and despicable stories.
Two people have been arrested and as many as 20 may have been involved in the gang rape of a 15 year old girl outside a Richmond High School home coming dance in Richmond, CA. According to the police, a 15 year old girl was gang raped Saturday night over a 2 1/2 hour.
Police posted a $20,000 reward Tuesday for anyone who comes to them with information that helps arrest and convict those involved in what authorities describe as a 2½-hour assault on the Richmond High School campus in suburban San Francisco.
Two teenage suspects have been jailed, but more arrests, as many as 20 total, are expected, according to a police detective.
According to reports as many as 10 people took part in the actual rape while another 10 people looked on and did absolutely nothing. NOTHING!!! A 15 year old girl is brutally savaged for 2 1/2 hours and not one person did anything to help this poor girl. UNBELIEVABLE. Instead if a human reaction by the 10 to help, they just watched. Although how many of us think that some one captured pics or video of the rape on their cell phone?
Who knew that Big Dan’s Tavern was alive and well at Richmond High School? For those of you unfamiliar with the Big Dan’s Tavern reference, this was the rape case made popular by the Jodie Foster movie, The Accused.
The story actually gets worse, if possible. The 15 year old victim was found unconscious under a bench shortly before midnight Saturday. Police were called to the scene after, get this one, they received a call from someone in the area who had overheard individuals at the assault scene “reminiscing about the incident.” That is correct, people involved were reminiscing about the gang rape.
According to California law, it illegal not to report a witnessed crime against a child, but the law applies only to children 14 and under. So because this girl is 15, these people should not be charged? A crime is a crime and maybe it should hinge in the severity of the crime as well as thee age of the victim. Maybe they can be charged with conspiracy, accessories and most certainly charge them as adults. Also, you may not be able to arrest these students, but you can certainly expel them. There is no reason on earth why these scumbags should be allowed in the hallways with other students. Expel every one of them, no exceptions!
The fact that these gutless teens did not come forward and help this defenseless girl is one thing, but where was the high school security? They would appear to be negligent in this matter as well and bare responsibility.
Charles Ramsey, a member of the Richmond school board, said the school district bears some responsibility for the attack. School administrators and police apparently weren’t watching the area as they should have, Ramsey said.
The school said it would hold a safety meeting for parents and students Wednesday evening to address the assault.
So far there are two people have been arrested, 19 year old Manuel Ortega and a 15 year old.
Nineteen-year-old Manuel Ortega, described as a former student at the school, was arrested soon after he fled the scene and will face charges of rape, robbery and kidnapping, police said.
A 15-year-old was later arrested and charged with one count of felony sexual assault. A third teenager was being interviewed, Gagan said.
“Based on witness statements and suspect statements, and also physical evidence, we know that she was raped by at least four suspects committing multiple sex acts,” Gagan said.
