It amazes me that judges can hear of crimes like this and still let the accused out on minimum bail. Fourteen adults and six juveniles were charged with repeatedly raping an 11-year old girl. And they are all out on bail. One defendant, who’s bail was only $35,000–you can get that from a credit card these days–has disappeared during a break in the trial. The judge just upped his bail to $250,000–but the man’s gone! If it had been $250,000 in the first place, I bet someone would have kept a better eye on him.
This poor girl had to testify for 1 and 1/2 hours about the sexual assaults by these men and had to watch a video that they took of the assaults. If she wasn’t scarred before, she certainly is now.
Where have we come to in America that a group of men and boys can sexually assault a child over and over again and video tape it? Are we so sexually demonized that out of 20 guys, no one thought this was wrong?
Eight of these defendants have already pleaded guilty. Someone said the girl was partially responsible because she wore make-up and wasn’t properly supervised by her parents. Excuse me???? That reasoning isn’t logic. That’s stupidity.
When this case is over, will these guys get a slap on the hand? A few years in jail or will this judge send a message to others that rape (of anyone, at any age) is WRONG.
Please pray for America and its ungodly sexual ways. Stop watching pornography in all it’s forms. Turn off the junk on your TV. Stop watching R rated movies. Don’t give your money to those that would take advantage of our children, our wives, our sisters, and even our brothers. And pray. Please.
