Richmond Gang Rape and Its Callous Spectator

Filed under: Crime — admin @ 12:09 am

On 10/24/2009 in Richmond, California, over 10 boys engaged in a 2 and a half hour long gang rape against a 15-year-old girl outside a California high school homecoming dance Saturday night. Shocking and disgusting.

The most tragic and disturbing part is as many as 20 people stood there watching without doing anything, some even laughing nearby with video cameras, as if they were watching a movie.

Richmond High student body is predominently Hispanics. What can we say about that high school and the people going there and their norms, values and culture, the culture that devalues their women to nothing but sex objects? Is it too much a prejudice to see this as a reflection of a sub-culture? What has made this part of humanity downgrade to this beastly low existence? I don’t have answer. I feel sad beyond words and deeply disturbed when I think of this poor girl.
