Spring Break Student Raped as Hundreds Watch

In March, a young woman was gang raped on a Florida beach, during daylight hours by at least three men while hundreds on spring break watched. Two of the men have been arrested.

One of the watchers used a cell phone to video the rape. The victim says she believes she was drugged because she has no memory of it.

Bay County Sheriff Frank McKeithen called the assault “disgusting” and “repulsive.” He also said that within ten feet of the where this happened, hundreds of people watched.

It seems the shock-factor in sexual assault these days has become saturated, because even though the news media carried the incident, public outcry has stagnated.

And what of the students watching? Is this type of behavior accepted in young people today? Was everyone too drunk or too drugged to react? Were they scared or maybe thought that the woman “asked for it?” Or did they just not care?
