"Witnesses: Disabled Girl Punched In Face, Forced To Perform Sex Acts"

http://www.local6.co...049/detail.html  

Quote

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- A 16-year-old disabled girl was punched and forced to engage in videotaped sexual acts with several boys in a high school auditorium as dozens of students watched, according to witnesses.

Authorities are investigating and no charges have been filed in the alleged attack last month at Mifflin High School. Four boys suspected of involvement were sent home and have not returned to class.

Also, the principal, Regina Crenshaw, was suspended and will be fired for not calling police, school officials said. And three assistant principals were suspended and will be reassigned to other schools.

Crenshaw had no comment Tuesday.

The girl was forced to perform oral sex on at least two boys, according to statements from school officials, obtained by The Columbus Dispatch.

Part of the alleged assault was videotaped by a student who had a camera for a school project.

School officials found the girl bleeding from the mouth. An assistant principal cautioned the girl's father against calling 911 to avoid media attention, the statements said. The girl's father called police.

Her father said the girl is developmentally disabled. A special education teacher said the teen has a severe speech impediment.
This is horrific!!!  I would have seen if I could have had the principle and assistant principle arrested as accomplices for not wanting to call the police.   :angry:   I think that those videotaping and those just spectating should have been arrested along with the perpetrators.  This makes me feel sick what happened to this girl and then for the school officials not to want to call the police???!!!  Words just aren't adequate for how horrible this is!!!   :glare:

Well I would support them being sent to adult prison and have it marked that they are sex offenders. (Goodbye College chances in some cases)Mark them for the rest of their lives as what they are. Something that a hundred years ago would have been serious injured by the people of the community.

While I would wish for them to die what they did is not a death penalty offense. So we can only hope that prison gets them.


As to the school authorites they need charged with every crime that they can be and given time with violent offenders with the same hope for the worthless boys who committed the attack.

I would think there would be several possible things the school officials could be charged with:  failure to report child abuse, failure to report a violent crime, child endangerment for attempting to prevent the child from immediately receiving emergency medical treatment, being accomplices after the fact for trying to prevent notification of the proper authorities.  With the kind of medical exam that is needed after a sexual assault, it's important to do the exam as soon as possible to collect evidence for prosecution.  Also she could have been put at risk of contracting HIV and other diseases!  

I can't comprehend the mindset of someone caring more about "media attention" than whether the girl got the help she needed.  Those officials who didn't want 911 called ought to be thrown in with the child molesters in prison.  

I wonder, too, do a lot of students nowadays have a victim or victimizer mentality?  With so many teenagers having cell phones now, some of them could have called 911 immediately at the first hint of trouble.  Also, why didn't some of the other students try to stop what was happening?  This is just appalling to me!  

I also don't understand why school officials in general in all schools don't try harder to monitor activity of students in a school building and on the school grounds.  What I mean by monitoring here is watching for possible violent or criminal activity.  Part of that may be a budgeting problem to have enough personnel to basically patrol school grounds, but something needs to be done to try to prevent things like this from happening.   :angry:  :glare:

I'd say death penalty across the board for those who did it as well as those who tried to cover it up, but, I'm probably an extremist... I just don't see any upside into prolonging the life of someone who'd do something like that.

If death - or at least maiming - is out of the question, then jail time should at least be mandatory for all involved...

Cheers,

***** I've had to do the same thing.  Not on anything as drastic as a gang rape, o' course, but I've had to defend somebody getting teased a couple of times.  I also stood by and did nothing while somebody was getting picked on, and as hard as it is maybe getting punched out for getting in the middle, the only ones that still bother me years down the line are the times when I didn't do anything.  That stays with you a lot longer.  Regret leaves a deeper scar than a fist can make.

If these people have consciences at all, they're going to have a lot of sleepless nights about this, maybe for the rest of their lives.  And I can't say they don't deserve it...

The teachers aren't the ones that have to worry about the way the school is perceived. Principals are the administrators, while the teachers are the ones that have to deal directly with the kids.
  
  In any case, even if a student were to get a principal, or teacher, or whoever is an authority figure in the school, we now know that the principal would have wanted to cover it up, but that wouldn't have been known at the time. Isn't the reason why we are so mad at this because the principals didn't do what we thought they ought to and we expected them to do? Thus, it could be a resonable expectation that a teacher or someone would have done something, especially if they were catching them in act.

  And in any case, it's better than just sitting there and watching.

Not in any HS or MS I ever subbed in. I spent periods outside during recess/study hall periods, in the lunch room, standing outside of the restrooms, monitoring the halls between periods, etc. Never are students left in a situation where they are alone.

Looking at more complete accounts of this incident (and remember, preliminary reports usually get a lot of stuff wrong-- nearly everything initially reported about the Columbine shootings turned out to be incorrect), it appears that several students did try and help the girl or at least ran to summon a campus security guard.  And it sounds like this crime was perpetrated by an entire group of boys, and there are few things scarier than a pack of teenage boys with no self-restraint.  And as an ardent death penalty opponent, I hope the little bastards fry.  

Sexual predators are scum, and sexual predators of the most vulnerable among us are the lowest form of scum.  I dread hearing the inevitable mothers in front of the TV cameras declaring how wonderful and misunderstood their poor persecuted boys are.

Here's a better idea...hand them over to the insurgents in Iraqi...Let these little bastards feel what it's like to be at the mercy of others...Of course the insurgents aren't known for their mercy...they're known for their beheadings...So, problem solved. Of course, the insurgents and Al-Queda probably wouldn't want nothing to do with punks like this either.
