15-Year-Old Girl Gang Raped at School Dance

 

A churchgoing girl was about to call her father when she was lured away by some students. Ten people hung around watching her being beaten and raped for up to two hours, with some using mobile phones to record the attack.

Her relatives have criticised the lack of security within the school and grounds. There were four security guards employed for the evening, but failed to ensure student safety by not spotting a gang of youths loitering.

The four accused, age 15, 16, 17, and 19, attended the Contra Costa County Superior Court in California donning bullet proof vests. A fifth person, Salvador Rodriguez, 21, is being held for his alleged involvement and is yet to be charged.

  The following choked me  
 
My name is Chris ,
I am three,
My eyes are swollen..
I cannot see.

I must be stupid,
I must be bad,
What else could have made,
My daddy so mad?

I wish I were better,
I wish I weren´t ugly,
Then maybe my mommy,
Would still want to hug me.

I can´t do a wrong,
I can´t speak at all,
Or else I´m locked up,
All day long.

When I´m awake,
I´m all alone,
The house is dark,
My folks aren´t home.

When my mommy does come home,
I´ll try and be nice,
So maybe I´ll just get,
One whipping tonight.

I just heard a car,
My daddy is back,
From Charlie´s bar

I hear him curse,
My name is called ,
I press myself,
Against the wall.

I try to hide,
From his evil eyes,
I´m so afraid now,
I´m starting to cry.

He finds me weeping,
Calls me ugly words,
He says its my fault,
He suffers at work.

He slaps and hits me,
And yells at me more,
I finally get free,
And run to the door.

He´s already locked it,
And I start to bawl,
He takes me and throws me,
Against the hard wall.

I fall to the floor,
With my bones nearly broken,
And my daddy continues,
With more bad words spoken.

´I´m sorry!´, I scream,
But it´s now much to late,
His face has been twisted,
Into a unimaginable shape.

The hurt and the pain,
Again and again,
O please God, have mercy!
O please let it end!

And he finally stops,
And heads for the door,
While I lay there motionless,
Sprawled on the floor.

My name is Chris ,
I am three,
Tonight my daddy,
Murdered me.

  horrible  
 
everyone who watched and did nothing needs to be prosecuted if possible. What is wrong with people nowadays.

  also  
 
why was a 19 year old and a 21 year old at a homecoming dance?
 
  by: willyshawker     10/31/2009 11:53 PM     
  Good point. @ Willy  
 
That should have been noted and they should have been made to leave by security.

This brings me back to the wall mart car park rapes. The security was very lax there too.

  Probably going to be pegged as a horrible person..  
 
for saying this, but

Poor actions:

"She was persuaded to join a group of teenagers drinking in a secluded part of the campus"

Have dangerous consequences:

"was horrifically assaulted after she fell into a stupor."

What girl in their RFM wanders off to a SECLUDED area to get DRUNK with men they don´t know?

Also:

"The church-going girl"

WTF does that have to do with anything? Are they trying to say church-going = religious = pure = somehow makes this worse? If you change that to "The Atheist girl" or "The Satanist girl", I somehow doubt you´d get a sufficient amount of outrage.

  @yusaku  
 
are there any teenagers who do NOT drink in a secluded place with a bunch of other teenagers? I know I did, luckily I never had any trouble. But let´s not blame her for doing what virtually everyone did when they were that age.

Oh of course, I myself have fond memories of swaggering off under the bleachers to spark up a quarter ounce of Jamaican red hair Freshman year with some friends, but I wouldn´t be daft enough to go off somewhere secluded with people I did not know.

You have to admit the way the article is being presented, the victim is being made to look completely innocent. Just going outside to call dad for a ride, and the church-going girl endures two hours of tortuous rape. My heart goes out to her, truly, but honestly, if it was that easy to isolate her and get her intoxicated, how innocent can she really be?

  19 and 21?  
 
What in the world does that have to do with *anything*? Did the social police come in and set laws stating that a 19 and 21 year old can´t associate?
 
  by: Luc1dDr3am     11/01/2009 04:44 AM     
  My typos  
 
are a crime of passion.

can´t associate with friends at a dance?

  Churchgoer?  
 
This is tragic, but why does it matter she is a churchgoer?

  Sad  
 
Before anything else I want to say I hope that the young lady gets all the help she needs to cope with what has happened to her and for the difficult days that are ahead of her. I can only imagine the horror and pain that she is going through and she is so young. I have a feeling that her pain and what she went through and still going through will be pushed aside for the news mentioning the church factor so much.


YuSaKu- The reason Jane mentioned churchgoing is because the article did.
"The church-going girl was allegedly beaten in the attack and was found unconscious under a bench."

I agree that if she was churchgoing or not does not make any difference, but you know how it is for many in the US it means a world of difference. If it was a non-churchgoing girl there would be whispers of feeling sorry for her *but you know she was asking for it I bet* and by saying churchgoing it is supposed to imply some virginal girl who only went to where those boys were because the DEVIL was working that night and the DEVIL had a hand in what those boys did. Not the fact that many churchgoing girls and boys can do the same thing as non-churchgoing teens, hell in my town the catholic high school kids did more stuff than we did and they were the ones who knew where to get the better coke and such.

I am with gryphon about why it matters, why the papers make it seem like that is the biggest thing and again I have to think because there is this idea out there that church girls are all virgins and saintly.

This girl was raped and beaten for two hours and nobody had the damn courage to stop it or take off and call the cops so they could put an end to it. Two hours! I wonder how many threats the police had to get before they put those vests on the punks.

Lucid-I am guessing here that the 21 year old supplied the booze and that is why they say held for his involvement and not yet charged. Also the 19 year old might be a student there depending on if he was held back a year or when his birthday is. Possibly a brother to one of the girls and went with her so she was alone.

I still think you´re way off. Some people are just naive, also she did think she knew the one guy. And what about date rape? There the woman knows the man, it still does not prevent her from being raped. I just don´t think a girl is a slut because she hangs out with a group of people she doesn´t know and drinks. Why not blame the rapists rather than the victim? People like you go over the victim´s behavior with a fine tooth comb to try to figure out why she brought it upon herself.
 
  by: gryphon50a   11/01/2009 01:49 PM     
  Fact...  
 
she left the building to call her father, maybe that is why I wrote it.

@Luc, it was a school art I assumed the age limit would be 18 and as it happens the men mentioned did NOT attend the school so why were they there?

@ gryphon50a. Wouldn´t it be wonderful if we could be as perfect as some! :P

  @jane  
 
Many kids graduate at 19, some unfortunately at 20. Given certain paperwork or verbal approval its generally not a problem for friends to have friends that are not students attend. That is besides the point, do you really beleive its ok to raise that nazi flag and say friends of friends cant associate at a supervised school function? What happened here happened outside of school.

Its that particular train of thought.... Like the preemptive precrime discrimination that happens in the uk that i really dont want to see in the states. Kids already have enough reasons to hate authority. Im just saying focus on the crime and the reason so many other things happened that shouldnt have... That let this progress to this point.

I swear we´re constantly obliterating the need for social responsibility and encouraging a "martial law" through fear of administrative liability.
 
  by: Luc1dDr3am     11/01/2009 05:10 PM     
  What I am getting at.@ Luc  
 
Is it was to supposed to be a supervised as function with kids under the age of 18 and held at a school; there fore those taking friends or relatives should had made the names known of the people attending with them. You have this at weddings to. I hate being told what to do and this country I live in is throttling, but sadly in some cases such as this. I now can see these incidents occur to way often it sadly proves that fact we need to keep records.

At the end of the day @ Luc, if the law made those from day one when they commit any sort of crime, accountable for their actions, making things not so easy to get away with there would be very little need for all this monitoring. But the law usually fails us, so then turning petty crimes into much bigger crimes and so on.

I think that the poem as the first comment is unrelated to and unnecessary to this story.

To the person who posted it:

  Bullet Proof Vests?  
 
have you seen Law Abiding Citizen? well the short of it is, some people kill this dudes wife and kid, and he takes his revenge on one of them by slicing off pieces of him a little bit at a time, until he´s just a big pile of bones and goo. these motherf*ckers deserve worse.

to all the vigilantes in the world: here is something new for you to live for....

  ppl read the holde story on cnn b4 u go and judge  
 
I had heard abut this story so before i was quick to judge her for any one else i went to go look for the hole story. first of all she knew one of the guys that she went to go to the back with and it was some what in the dark and was on school grounds. When they first went to the dance there was was up to 15 guys sitting by the school and no cops or the vise principle or the secretary ppl ask who they were or what they were doing there. She had already had called her dad who was on his way so like most immature 15 year old probably said i go and have a few drinks. I can´t tell you how many times that i went and drank and only knew a couple ppl and their was like 10 -15 guys i was the only female. I never got raped when i did that. She made a very bad choice that she will have to live with forever and for the girls that have gotten raped b4 they know that it messes up your lives forever no matter what kind of help you get or don´t get. Like the last report said about this the dad is asking to stop the violence. I do believe that she was a church goer. So many times you are condemned because you believe in GOD. For the ppl who watched this and did nothing and the guys who did this for 2 in half hours the ones who watched should be charged as well under the state of cali they will not be the lil boys who did this i think then should have there dicks cut off and be branded on the forehead repast. SO for all the ones who is blaming her think what if this was your sister or mom grandma would you say the same thing and as for death row hell no that is the easy way out they need to be in prison and let them get raped every day by big bubba and hope they dont enjoy that through. really they need to have the dicks cut off!!!!!

  wow  
 
schools in CA sound really crap.
Almost sound as bad as schools in FL

  @ MS lil UNO x3  
 
I am I missed this comment until now.

You are perfectly correct in saying the boys that stood there for two and a half hours should be prosecuted to.
By the law FAILING to do this they are creating more such acts in the future by letting it slip and the security SHOULD have been manning the grounds as such events as well as the internal building where they party was being held.
